Vitamin C, ascorbic acid, is probably one of the most highly publicized, yet least understood, of all of the vitamins. Championed by Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, Ph.D., and advocated by many nutrition buffs, vitamin C is indeed a fascinating and important nutrient (or micronutrient) necessary for human life.
Vitamin C helps protect cells and keep them healthy. It is also involved in the production of collagen, which maintains healthy connective tissues, important for the support and structure of tissues and organs including the skin, bones and blood vessels."
Vitamin C helps with wound healing, and consuming vitamin C increases the amount of iron we can absorb from plant sources, such as kale, broccoli and sprouts.
Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants that may protect against damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals, as well as toxic chemicals and pollutants like cigarette smoke. Research suggests that free radicals can build up and contribute to the development of health conditions such as cancer, heart disease and arthritis.
Magnesium Plus contains a blend of various minerals that are essential to health. These minerals are in their chelated forms for increased bioavailability. Magnesium Plus is used to help maintain normal acid-base metabolism, DNA synthesis, electrolyte balance, connective tissue formation, and energy metabolism. Moreover, it may help with the development and maintenance of bones and teeth, skin health, regulating the immune system, normal blood glucose levels, and muscle function. This IC was created with the help of magnesium, calcium, zinc, copper, boron, manganese, molybdenum, chromium, and selenium.
Iron is an essential mineral that plays a role in immune system function, treating anemia, improving muscle strength, reducing fatigue, improving concentration, and restoring sleep. Additionally, iron helps to form red blood cells and helps in their proper function. This IC was created with the help of iron (chelated form) and additional vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, folic acid, magnesium, and copper to help the absorption of iron from the digestive tract.
L-Methionine is an essential amino acid that contains sulfur and is found naturally in meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products. It can also be found in some fruits and vegetables; however, at much lower levels. L-Methionine is important to maintain normal health as it helps the body make and use proteins, metabolize fats, protects the body from free-radical damage (since it’s an antioxidant), plays a role in DNA methylation, and produces the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. L-Methionine may be used to support the liver and tissues and may help treat joint pain and stiffness, general pain, headaches, nausea, hair loss, and depression.
Mitochondrial Energy Support is beneficial for those needing an energy boost. It may be used to encourage healthy mitochondrial function, inhibit cellular glycation and oxidation, boost cellular energy production, promote the generation of new mitochondria, protect the mitochondria by inhibiting the effects of free radicals, and discourage inflammatory factors to support cellular health. This IC was made with the help of carnosine, l-taurine, benfotiamine, R-lipoic acid, pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ), and pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Mitochondrial Energy Support brand names include:
Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer
Nigella seed, also known as kalonji, is a spice known for its therapeutic benefits for thousands of years and was even found in King Tut’s tomb. Nigella seeds are nutrient-rich and contain thymoquinone, which is known for its powerful antioxidant, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory properties. Nigella seeds may be taken to help lower cholesterol levels, aid with weight loss, protect from cancer, regulate blood sugar levels, help maintain blood pressure, fight inflammation, ease joint pain, help with dental issues, strengthen immune system function, promote liver and kidney health, treat infertility, boost memory, and help with headaches.
Glutathione is an antioxidant that is consists of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. It plays an important role in several biological functions such as metabolism of toxins, immune system function, protecting against oxidative cell damage, and recycling vitamins E and C. Glutathione (reduced) is in an active form for optimal bioavailability. It may be used to support liver detoxification, reduce oxidative stress, boost immune system function, help with wrinkles, fight autoimmune disease, support wound healing, and aid with fatigue.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are natural carotenoids (i.e. pigments produced by plants) and powerful antioxidants. These two carotenoids are best known for protecting the eyes and supporting eye health. Lutein + Zeaxanthin may be used to help protect against vision loss, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, eye detachment and uveitis. It may also be used to defend the body from free radical damage and protect skin from sun damage.
Powerful Multinutrient Complex is not your regular multivitamin as it contains more antioxidants, coenzymes and trace minerals. It is mainly made of fruits and vegetables and provides a full spectrum of essential nutrients for whole-body health and longevity. It may be used to promote healthy DNA and cellular proliferation, protect DNA structure, support metabolic and cardiovascular health, boost immune system function, aid cognitive function, support muscular system, help inhibit oxidative stress, support healthy inflammatory response, maintain healthy blood pressure, protect nerve cells, aid with detoxification, support thyroid function, and enhance vision. This IC was made with the help of quercetin, delphinidins, pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, vitamin D3, selenium, green tea, broccoli, pomegranate, blueberry, lutein, lycopene, calcium, bilberry, grape, orange, cherry, blackberry, cranberry, plum, elderberry, persimmon, and sesame seed.
Powerful Multinutrient Complex brand names include:
Life Extension Mix
This IC of Fullerene C60 may help with neutralization of free radical damage to tissues, reduce of cell damage, increase libido, improve immunity and provide arthritis relief, protect from ionizing radiation, and restore the body's innate ability to heal itself.
