Heart-Brain-Body Support and Antioxidant Nutriceutical (food as medicine) supplement range to support cell function and cell-to-cell communication in all organs and systems, to ensure longevity, rejuvenation and optimal function.
Unique ingredients to support and enhance total wellbeing
Herbal Remedies / Botanicals
Results from various scientific studies suggest that compounds in Astragalus root, slow down the telomere shortening rate by preventing oxidative stress with its excess free radical formation. This is mainly due to the biological properties of the compounds to reduce DNA damage and improve DNA repair ability, thereby preventing and delaying cellular ageing and enhancing longevity.
Ginkgo is probably the most essential ingredient in any heart, brain and nervous system supplement. Ginkgo improves the blood flow to the heart, brain and the entire body – allowing the tissues to get more oxygen, nutrients and fuel (glucose) for energy. On a cellular level ginkgo stabilises cell membranes, disposes of free radicals, stimulates enzymes that allow the arterial smooth muscle to relax (important in hypertension and stroke) and suppresses platelet aggregation (important in the treatment and prevention of hypertension, heart attacks and stroke). Ginkgo has a marked antidepressant effect and normalises blood pressure.
The ingredients in ginkgo also protect the neurons throughout the body and are responsible for ginkgo’s ability to improve memory and mental function. Its antioxidant effect is very important in the brain, which is very sensitive to free radical damage. It also prevents platelet clotting and reduces the viscosity of blood – blood is then less inclined to form clots.
Green Tea Extract
Green tea supports the metabolism and improves the immune system while maintaining youthful cells. Ingredients in green tea provide protection against LDL-cholesterol (bad cholesterol) oxidation and suppresses the growth of many types of cancer. They also provide protection from damage of free radicals caused by air pollution and smoking, therefore encourage cell repair, rejuvenation and longevity.
Ashwaganda root and Angelica sinensis
Supports all endocrine glands, incl. thyroid, male and female reproductive systems and adrenal glands for optimal physiological function while providing support in coping with stress.
Resveratrol (grape skin extract)
Resveratrol protects against cancer, effects of ageing, atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases and reduces inflammation – always knew red wine was good for you! The French obviously know something. In all the countries where there is a high consumption of red wine the incidence of cardiovascular disease is very low.Resveratrol is a very potent antioxidant and protects all the body’s systems against ageing, thereby supporting cell rejuvenation and longevity.
As the key support enzyme for the body’s energy systems for optimal fuel production, this co-enzyme occurs in abundance in the mitochondria of every cell. The mitochondria are the power generators of the cell where all the energy for the cell’s biochemical functions is produced. Energy is stored in the cell in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is released as energy molecules when required. CoQ10 is an essential catalyst in this process, ensuring efficient and sufficient energy (fuel) for all cells, allowing them to work optimally, remaining and acting young. Cells starved of energy (fuel) age faster. CoQ10 supports brain function, rejuvenates and invigorates the heart, sharpens memory and turbo charges the immune system.
Gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) is a neurotransmitter with a calming effect. GABA also contributes to mental alertness and improved memory.
Vitamin A is an antioxidant that neutralises and removes free radicals. It supports collagen production in the dermis, which causes the middle layers of the skin to plump and retain moisture. Vitamin A nourishes and hydrates the skin, improves texture and tone, repairs the cellular structure of the epidermis, counteracts inflammations and protects cell membranes and other structures within the cells from the damage caused by free radicals and in this way helps to prevent skin disorders. Vitamin A increases blood flow, stimulates the skin and protects against sunburn. Vitamin A is also used in anti-wrinkle products as it supports the healing of damaged connective tissue, thereby assisting in smoothing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and scarring. Vitamin A is a potent antioxidant and supports the heart, brain, nervous system and immune system.
Vitamin E and Vitamin C
Vitamin E and Vitamin C are potent antioxidants and neutralise and destroy free radicals, therefore delaying the ageing process in all tissues and organs, promoting the longevity, renewal and rejuvenation of skin. One cause of ageing is the accumulation of free radicals over a lifetime, with associated tissue damage. Both promote the healing of wounds, while preventing and reducing the formation of scar tissue and stretch marks. Both are excellent natural preservatives due to its antioxidant and antimicrobial (preventing growth of bacteria and fungi) properties.
Vitamin C is probably best known for its role in collagen production. Collagen maintains and gives structure to the subcutaneous tissue and protects the structure of the skin. Loss of collagen is an important cause in ageing of the skin. Vitamin C retards this process and improves the collagen support in the skin and is, with Vitamin E, vitally important for maintaining the condition of all tissues and accelerating the healing process after injury or tissue damage.
B-complex Vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, Folic acid, Choline, Biotin and Inositol
The B-complex group of vitamins act as minor antioxidants. As co factors, however, they are essential for the effective functioning of the antioxidant enzymes. The B complex vitamins increases energy levels and optimise physiology and metabolism.
Folic acid is essential for normal deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in the nucleus of every cell. Marginal deficiencies can lead to chromosome defects. Most adults have a folic acid deficiency, making supplementation essential. This is especially important in cancer and ageing, where a malfunction in growth control caused by a genetically inherited DNA chromosome abnormality already exists. Vitamin B12 and folic acid reverse early changes in cancer and prolongs cell regeneration and therefore longevity.
Vitamin B6, B12 and folic acid are also very important for regulating the levels of homocystein. Together with vitamin E, they prevent the damage to blood vessels (atherosclerosis) associated with high levels of homocystein.
