Vitamin C: Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is mainly present in fruits and vegetables. Modern diets are often lacking in this essential nutrient, which means we mush top up regularly. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, meaning that it is easily lost during cooking or long term storage. One of the most important vitamins for immunity and protect against inflammation, vitamin C is also necessary for the proper utilisation of iron in the body. A naturally powerful antioxidant, this amazing nutrient helps eliminate harmful free radicals and prevent inflammation. Vitamin C also plays a vital role in the proper functioning of your immune system and for cell repair and renewal.
Acerola Cherry: A known superfruit, famed for its abundant nutritional content and exceptionally high vitamin C content. Vitamin C plays an important role in cell repair and renewal and the proper functioning of your immune system. Very high in antioxidants, acerola cherries helps keep harmful free radicals in check and prevent damage caused by oxidative stress. Also a natural source of bioflavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, iron, calcium and phosphorus.
Baobab Fruit: A well known traditional medicinal fruit famed for its incredible nutritional properties, containing multiple times the nutrients of other fruits and even milk. These nutrients include protein, vitamin C, antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium and B vitamins. Being high in dietary fibre, baobab also supports your digestive health and can reduce feelings of hunger, which can promote weight loss. Can also help slow the increase of blood sugar levels and decrease the amount of insulin needed to keep your blood sugar under control. Studies show that baobab fruit can help reduce inflammation and prevent oxidative damage to cells, giving it a well deserved anti inflammatory and anti viral reputation.
Astragalus Root: A known adaptogen, astragalus root contain ingredients that work together to bring your body and mind into greater balance, depending on what is needed, thereby helping to reduce stress and promote energy and vitality. Referred to as “the ancient herb of longevity and strength”, astragalus has been a mainstay of Traditional Chinese Medicine for several thousand years, due to its remarkable ability to restore health on virtually every level, mentally, emotionally, physically, energetically and spiritually. A number of studies have shown that certain compounds in astragalus root have measurable telomerase stimulating and enhancing effects, which have been linked to increased longevity, anti aging and DNA repair. With powerful immunity boosting properties (helps increase pathogen fighting immune antibodies and T-cells), this medicinal root can help increase levels of the anti viral compound interferon (natural proteins that helps the body fight disease and cancer).
Black Pepper (piperine): Increases thermogenic activity in the body(cellular energy), which results in an increase in metabolic rate. A very good anti inflammatory agent that increases the absorption and utilisation of the other beneficial ingredients and nutrients.
Black Aged Garlic: Boasting a wide range of beneficial properties including being antibacterial, antiparasitic, antispasmodic, anti dyspeptic, anti blood clotting as well as lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure. Traditionally used to treat dysentery, typhoid, cholera, bacterial food poisoning and intestinal worms.
What is black garlic and why is it different?
Black garlic is fermented raw garlic, increasing its antioxidant, sulphur and s-allyl-cysteine (SAC) levels. SAC is an amino acid and is powerfully antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer.
Olive Leaf Extract: An excellent antimicrobial against many species of virus and bacteria, olive leaf is a bitter substance produced by the olive tree. Traditionally peoples have chopped up olive leaves in liquid or salad form to prevent and treat parasitic infections. Olive leaf is also effective against fungi, moulds, worms and bacteria and can be used for yeast infections.
Rosehip: A great source of bio-available vitamin C and bioflavonoids (which exert a synergic action to vitamin C, enhancing its absorption rate) plus vitamins A, B1-3 and K and iron, yielding approximately 1,700mg of vitamin C per 100g dried rosehip. Studies show it can be effective in reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis and sore, achy joints.
Turmeric: An aromatic, stomachic, antioxidant, carminative and bile stimulant. Supports the body’s anti inflammatory actions, liver function and bile flow. Helps to reduce loose motions and flatulence. The main active ingredient is curcumin, a powerful antioxidant shown to reduce free radical damage in the body and has long been used in ayurvedic medicine as a blood purifier, stomachic, carminative, bile stimulant and to strengthen liver function and treat hepatitis C and gallbladder disease. A powerful anti inflammatory, turmeric heals and restores the body’s normal tissue function. Can help reduce inflammation of the joints, including stiffness and swelling (common symptoms of arthritis). If inflammation persists for a prolonged period of time, it becomes chronic inflammation and chronic inflammation can be the result of an infection, autoimmune reaction or allergy. The anti inflammatory and antioxidant effects of curcumin have also been associated with improved regulation of blood pressure and decreased risk of several types of cardiovascular disease. Turmeric can also detoxify your body, improve cognitive function, maintain blood sugar balance and support kidney function, as well as lessening the degree of severity associated with certain forms of arthritis and certain digestive disorders.
Reishi Mushroom: With the Japanese name Reishi or Mannetake (10,000 year mushroom), the Chinese name Ling Zhi (spirit mushroom – mushroom of spritual potency), this mushroom is also referred to as the ‘mushroom of immortality’ of Chinese legend because it has been linked to anti-aging and longevity, as well as detoxification, anti-inflammatory actions, energy boosting, immunity and more. Reishi is rich in active polysaccharides, as well as triterpenoid compounds (primarily ganoderic and lucidenic acids).
Black Elderberry: One of the most commonly used herbs for immune health and is a long-established daily tonic for both immune support and antioxidant support. These berries are high in anthocyanins, which give them their bluish-purple colour, as well as anthocyanidins. These flavonoids have antioxidant properties, and they’ve also been recorded to have a high oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC), which is the scale by which antioxidant activity is measured. They assist with the body’s natural defenses and cell communication.
Grapefruit Seed: Proven to be a highly effective, natural broad spectrum anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic and anti-fungal. In fact, it has been proven to be effective against over 800 strains of viruses and bacteria, 100 strains of fungi, plus several single-celled parasites – no other anti-microbial can make such claims. The antimicrobial activity of grapefruit seed extract is in the way that it changes the body of the pathogen; it stops the intake of amino acids into the pathogen and causes its walls to leak, killing it off. Despite destroying harmful intestinal parasites, grapefruit seed does not significantly harm healthy bowel flora.
Ginger Root: Alleviates occasional gas, bloating and nausea. Ginger is a hot bitter herb and promotes gastric acidity to aid digestion. Traditionally used for stomach conditions due to its anti inflammatory, carminative, anti spasmodic, expectorant (increases bronchial mucous), vasodilator and circulatory stimulant properties. Promotes gastric secretions in cases of achlorhydria (absence or reduction of hydrochloric acid in stomach juice causing poor digestion).
Lactobacillus Acidophilus: One of the friendly bacteria (probiotics) found in the mouth, bowel and vagina and involved in the production of lactase enzyme, which is required to digest lactose (milk sugar), along with other sugars. It also helps protect against invading pathogens and other harmful micro organisms associated with food poisoning and infections such as Candida and thrush. Probiotics are essential for a strong and effective immune system as they are involved in countless processes such as the production on B Vitamins, regulating cholesterol levels and supporting absorption of foods and nutrients.
U: A fat soluble vitamin stored in the liver, fatty tissues, heart, muscles, testes, uterus, blood, adrenal and pituitary glands. Helps protect against disease by acting as a cell antioxidant, prevents the oxidation of fat compounds, vitamin A, selenium, two sulphur amino acids and some vitamin C. It also accelerates healing, helps the supply of oxygen to the body, which enhances endurance. and protects lungs against air pollution by synergising with vitamin A.
Zinc: Contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, DNA synthesis, acid base metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, cognitive function, fertility and reproduction, macronutrient metabolism, metabolism of fatty acids, metabolism of vitamin A, protein synthesis, healthy hair, nails and skin, normal testosterone levels in the blood, good vision, immune system function, protects cells from oxidative stress and has a role in the process of cell division.
Vitamin B6: Plays a role in immune function, regulation of hormonal activity, normal cysteine synthesis, energy yielding metabolism, homocysteine metabolism, protein and glycogen metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Selenium: A naturally occurring mineral found in the soil, water and in some foods and plays an important part in skin health. As well as being an efficient antioxidant, this essential mineral is a component of more than two dozen proteins that influence everything from skin health to reproduction, the making of DNA, thyroid function and immune response. Selenium neutralises free radicals and other skin damaging compounds before they can cause lines and wrinkles. It is similar to vitamin E and works well with vitamin E to safeguard cell membranes, the protective coating around cells. Tnhis makes selenium a key player when it comes to slowing the signs of ageing and protecting against UV induced cell damage, skin inflammation and pigmentation.
Vitamin D: A group of fat soluble secosteroids responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate, and zinc. In humans, the most important compounds in this group are vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Vitamin D3 is included in the Immuno Support Plus formula and contributes to the normal function of the immune system and healthy inflammatory response, normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus, normal blood calcium levels, the maintenance of normal bones, the maintenance of normal muscle function, the maintenance of healthy teeth. It also plays a role in the process of cell division and is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.
