PHYTONUTRIENTS are naturally-occurring chemicals found in most fruits and vegetables. These Phytonutrients are usually found in the least desirable part of the food, for example, skin, stalk, core, and seeds. They fortify the immune system.* Fructo Oligosaccharides (Flora) has been added to maintain a healthier intestinal tract.* Scientists have found that Phytonutrients may help maintain healthy cholesterol and normal blood pressure, stimulate regular heart beat, elevate the mood and detoxify blood.* Phytonutrients also help cleanse the liver, and improve circulation in body organs.* Phytonutrients are powerful anti-oxidants.*
BIOVIN® GRAPE SEED EXTRACT:
Contains reservatrol which is prominent in the skin of grapes and may block the action of carcinogens.* It has also been found to lower blood levels of cholesterol, block the formation of cholesterol that clogs arteries and reduce the tendency of the blood to form clots.* Reservatrol also has anti-inflammatory activity.* It can stimulate cells to produce enzymes that detoxify carcinogens.* Pycnongenols commonly called Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) found in grape seed extract are renowned for their superior antioxidant power and instant bioavailability for their antihistamine, anti-inflammatory and anti-elastase /collegenase properties.* They are known to strengthen and repair connective tissue.* Grape seed extract contains Leucocyanidins, which belong to the family of bioflavanoids.* Leucocyanidins have an important role in the health of the circulation system and have many times more antioxidant protection than vitamins C, A and E.*
It has been shown to fend off a host of serious conditions.* It contains two compounds – indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and sulforaphane – that help sweep up carcinogens before they have a chance to do any harm.* It is also good for a healthy heart.* Broccoli is loaded with nutrients: beta-carotene, antioxidants, calcium, folate, and fiber.* It also contains: iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin C, manganese and potassium.*
Like broccoli, cabbage contains a wealth of nutrients that can ward off serious conditions according to research.* Good for a healthy heart.* It contains the I3 C’s and sulfpraphanes, beta-carotene, antioxidants, vitamin C, and folate.*
Good for the eyes, can improve night vision.* It is also good for a healthy heart.* Carrots are full of beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and vitamin C.*
A soluble fiber. Similar to fiber found in oat bran, it performs differently from insoluble fiber in the body. Soluble fiber forms a gel-like material in the digestive tract that helps lower cholesterol levels by lowering the amount of cholesterol produced in the liver. Apple pectin’s ability to form a gel slows digestion, which slows the rise in blood sugar- so it is helpful for diabetics.
A heart healthy nutrient that contains folate, magnesium, iodine, potassium, and alginate.
A lipid (a chemical substance that is relatively insoluble in water). Increases the solubility of cholesterol and helps remove cholesterol from tissue deposits.* Studies have confirmed lecithin’s ability to increase HDL (good) cholesterol and inhibit platelet clumping or aggregation.*
Inulin is an intestinal flora, and a prebiotic. It works in each person’s intestine according to their individual needs, to help maintain a healthy balance of good intestinal flora.* It does this by acting like a fertilizer in the intestines, selectively feeding only the good bacteria that already exist in each individual’s system.*
