Antioxidants are nature's first defense against free radical damage and are an essential part of optimal health.
Bioflavonoids are crucial in helping us react quickly to viruses, carcinogens and allergens, giving us a powerful immune boost.
Phytonutrients help prevent cancer, heart disease (and most chronic diseases in general), are anti-aging, and boost the immune system.
Some are essential. Some aren't. But almost every function in our body utilizes or is supported by one or more minerals.
An essential vitamin that’s crucial for addressing adrenal fatigue, multiple metabolic functions—including enzyme production, DNA synthesis and hormonal balance—and maintaining healthy nervous and cardiovascular systems.
The single-celled, micro-algae, "superfood," Chlorella, has a molecular structure that allows it to bind to lingering heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides found in your digestive tract, which is your body's pathway to your bloodstream where these harmful toxins are delivered and deposited into your body's cells. Chlorella is also uniquely designed to not bind to beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium or zinc your body naturally needs to function optimally. Chlorella is like unleashing a tiny army inside your body to fight the battle of removing toxins from your tissues and ushering them back outside your body where they belong.
Broccoli sprouts contain up to 100 times the level of the glucoraphanin found in mature broccoli. When ingested, glucoraphanin converts to sulphoraphane, a compound that protects the body by accelerating its ability to detoxify from various pollutants -- especially carcinogensa and preservatives such as benzene (found in car exhaust fumes and soda).
Coriander (cilantro) seeds are packed with numerous antioxidant flavonoids that can help reduce LDL (bad cholesterol) while increasing HDL (good cholesterol) levels. Professional herbalists have long ago recognized this plant's ability to detoxify the body from heavy metals such as mercury. It basically acts as a powerful cleansing agent, as some of its compounds enable the cells and tissues to slowly remove these heavy metal toxins and then purge them from the body as simple waste materials.
This herb is packed with numerous antioxidant flavonoids that can help reduce LDL (bad cholesterol) while increasing HDL (good cholesterol) levels. This plant’s ability to detoxify the body from heavy metals, such as mercury and lead, has been known for centuries.
This incredibly powerful seed is capable of healing the body from chemical weapons poisoning, or stimulate the regeneration of dying insulin-producing beta cells in the diabetic pancreas, to name but only a few of grape seed's experimentally-confirmed powers.
Like organic grape seed extract, pine bark is a rich source of the flavonoid proanthocyanidans (OPCs), which provide powerful antioxidants against both water- and fat-soluble free radicals. OPCs also protect collagen, and supports healthy brain function.
Milk thistle has been used for thousands of years to support liver, kidney, and gall bladder health. It contains the flavonoid silymarin, which is thought to be responsible for many of its beneficial effects, including liver protection and antioxidant, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Malic acid is able to bind to potentially toxic metals that may have accumulated in our body, such as aluminum or lead, and inactivate them. In addition to being an effective metal chelator, malic acid can work well to aid digestion, help absorb nutrients from the food we eat, help maintain healthy skin and stimulates the production of saliva which promotes better oral hygiene.
Commonly used in hospitals to treat acetaminophen toxicity and acute liver failure, N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a slightly modified version of the sulfur-containing amino acid cysteine. When taken internally, NAC replenishes intracellular levels of the natural antioxidant glutathione, protecting cellular and DNA damage caused from the oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
Beta 1,3 glucan is a potent immune-system enhancer shown to protect against viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, and free radicals. Research indicates that beta 1,3 glucan can benefit diabetes, arthritis, bacterial infections, fungal diseases, candida, heart disease, viral conditions, and a host of other immunity-impaired and autoimmune diseases. Abundant research also suggests that beta 1,3 glucan may inhibit carcinogenesis. Furthermore, this yeast-derived nutrient can protect against chemotherapy damage, ultraviolet radiation, and radiation from computer monitors.
Hesperidin is the most active bioflavanoid in citrus based fruits. Hesperidin improves the health of capillaries by reducing the capillary permeability. Also, can decrease histamine release from mast cells by strengthening the cell membrane. Hesperidin fights allergic reactions by blocking the release of histamine.
This is a very powerful and beneficial antioxidant flavonoid found in cranberries, onions, tea and apples. It has been shown to significantly protect against DNA damage and helps reduce inflammation. Because it makes insulin work better, it is especially beneficial to diabetics.
Taurine helps facilitate the production of Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), reducing stress and anxiety. It also helps to manage insulin sensitivity and fights oxidative stress.
Iodine controls the function of the thyroid gland in the human body, which in turn has a significant influence on the metabolic processes in the body.
Magnesium prevents the uptake of aluminum, mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium, strontium-90 and other radioisotopes. It helps to eliminate already absorbed toxins as well. One study has shown that exposure to toxins can decrease magnesium levels in the blood. As a result, optimal levels of minerals in the diet are essential before and after one is exposed to dental, medical X-rays and airport scanner radiation. Magnesium plays a vital role in endothelial cell function. It also plays a major role in protecting the brain and heart.
Zinc plays a key role in many biological functions such as reproduction, diabetes control, stress level modulation, immune resistance, smell and taste, physical growth, appetite and digestion.
Boron plays an important role in maintaining cellular and organ membrane functions and in stabilizing the hormone receptors so bodily processes go smoothly.
Selenium is an essential trace mineral that functions as an antioxidant and promotes a healthy immune system. Selenium helps the body safely remove many toxic heavy metals like mercury and arsenic and other biological toxins. Not only does selenium seem to help protect against the toxic effects of chronic arsenic exposure, but high levels of chronic arsenic ingestion may accelerate the excretion of selenium. Selenium effectively scours the body of toxic mercury and arsenic buildup and mitigates their neurotoxic effects. Selenium also visibly helps to improve mobility and athletic ability as the body ages, Selenium is required to produce the thyroid hormone.
