A Natural, esterified form of Vitamin C that is absorbed about 400 times faster than the Vitamin C itself. With Bioflavonoids, Organic Kelp & Rockweed, Spirulina, Selenium. Ingredients: two seaweeds (Kelp and Rockweed), Citrus bioflavonoids, Spirulina, and the trace element selenium. 1.Ester-C? IT’S MORE EASILY ABSORBED – A few hours after taking Ester-C, blood levels are twice as high as they would be after regular vitamin C. Plus the loss of ascorbate by urine is a massive six-times lower. IT’S MORE BIOAVAILABLE – its high concentration of the vitamin C metabolite calcium threonate effectively increases its absorption even further (upto around 400 times quicker). IT’S SIDE-EFFECT FREE – Regular vitamin C is acidic (ascorbic acid) associated with heartburn, stomach irritation and even damage to tooth enamel. But not pH-neutralised Ester-C. IT LASTS ALL DAY – Ester-C is not only absorbed faster, it’s also retained in the body’s white blood cells for up to 24 hours. That’s anti-oxidation around the clock. BENEFITS IMMUNE BOOST- Ester-C enhances immunity by increasing ascorbic acid levels in white blood cells for up to 24 hours after the initial dose. ANTI-INFECTION- Ester-C cuts the incidence of the common cold. It also reduces the number of days of viral infection and severe symptoms. ANTI-OXIDATION- Ester-C helps strengthen cell membranes and shields the body from free-radical damage. Plus it comes with anti-inflammatory action. PRO-HEART HEALTH- Its antioxidant action has even bigger cardiovascular benefits. Ester-C protects good HDL cholesterol molecules from oxidative damage and helps to balance blood pressure levels. PRO-COLLAGEN- It promotes collagen production, which the body uses to build cartilage, bones, skin, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels, teeth and gums. PRO-HEALING- Great for maintenance and mending, Ester-C has been found to help promote wound healing and connective tissue repair. 2. Kelp and Rockweed? There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables. Prevents assimilation of different radionucleotides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins. An easily absorbed array of essential nutrients – some of them rare. Various vitamins Minerals – they contain 10 to 20 times more minerals than land plants, including sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and trace minerals Iodine Antioxidants, like chlorophyll and carotenes Vegetable protein Fibre Amino acids Enzymes BENEFITS PRO-IMMUNITY- Sea greens are great for immune-compromised states like chronic fatigue, HIV/Aids, arthritis and allergies. They also come with anti-inflammatory effects. ANTI-INFECTION- They have antiviral, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties. They help stop herpes outbreaks and give the thyroid a hand in releasing iodine into the bloodstream to fight infection. PRO-DETOXIFICATION- Both kelp and rockweed contain sodium alginate – a totally safe substance known for detoxifying effects, anti-tumour properties and a talent for counteracting nuclear radiation. Kelp also contains mucilaginous (read: gooey) compounds that help the digestive system do its detoxing and eliminating work. PRO-THYROID HEALTH- Glands like the adrenals, pituitary and thyroid all need iodine to produce hormones. And sea veggies have organic iodine in volumes. That’s what makes them great glandular balancers – particularly the production of the thyroid hormone that influences metabolism, growth and energy production. PRO-WEIGHT LOSS. Kelp improves glandular and metabolic function leading to reduced fat stores and fluid retention. 3. SPIRULINA? Spirulina has more of everything. It has three times more protein than meat, milk or eggs, 20 times more beta-carotene than carrots, 250 times more vitamin B12 than liver and around 12 times more iron than, well, anything else. PHYCOCYANIN– It puts the blue in the blue-green algae. This blue pigment acts as an immune-stimulant, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It helps prevent nerve damage, oxidation, liver disease and arthritis. Plus it’s regulates white blood cell production and stimulates bone marrow stem cells to make red blood cells – even if the bone marrow has been damaged by radiation or toxins. PROTEIN AND AMINO ACIDS– Compromised immune systems are hungry for the amino acids cysteine, glutamine and tryptophan. Spirulina serves them all, and many others. In fact, it’s 62% pure amino acids. So it’s a great source of high-quality vegan protein – with three times more protein than meat, eggs or milk. VITAMINS– Everything from vitamin A, the Bs, C, E, and H. It’s also considered the richest natural source of vitamin B12. ANTIOXIDANTS– The free-radical scavenging is done by spirulina’s chlorophyll, and carotenoids like beta-carotene beta-cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin. GAMMA LINOLEIC ACID (GLA)- A fabulous fatty acid that helps reduce cholesterol levels. Spirulina has around three times more of it than evening primrose oil. TRACE ELEMENTS AND MINERALS– Among others, it’s got calcium, iron, magnesium, chromium, copper, zinc and immune-friendly selenium. BENEFITS ANTI-INFECTION. It’s been shown to work against bacteria like E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus, and viruses like human cytomegalovirus, measles, mumps, influenza and Herpes Simplex Type I. PRO-IMMUNITY. Spirulina is very well-used in immune-deficient diseases like HIV/AIDS. It’s a clinically proven immune tool. PRO-BIOTIC. It feeds the growth of beneficial lactic-acid bacteria, which can be depleted after a course of antibiotics. 4. CITRUS BIOFLAVONOIDS? They’re found in citrus fruits like lemon, orange, tangerine and grapefruit. They have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects. These Boiflavonoids are essential for vitamin C absorption. BENEFITS ANTI-INFECTION, INFLAMMATION AND ALLERGIES. As far back as the 1950s citrus bioflavonoids were found to improve acute respiratory infections (like colds, flu and tonsillitis) in only eight to 48 hours. They can also help reduce inflammation, swelling and allergic reactions. PRO-HEALING. A well-known 1962 study showed that athletes who took a citrus bioflavonoid supplement seldom suffered cramps and had fewer muscle injuries than placebo takers. Plus their injuries healed twice as fast. ANTI-OXIDATION. They work synergistically with vitamin C to protect the body from free radicals. PRO-CIRCULATION. Bioflavonoids can help smooth out circulatory problems. They’ve been found to support capillaries and veins and improve chronic venous insufficiency. Plus they’re used to help treat haemorrhoids, easy bruising and high cholesterol. 5. SELENIUM? It’s a member of the trace-mineral family – meaning it’s essential for good health, but only needed. BENEFITS PRO-IMMUNITY. A study from the University of Brussels found that elderly people who took selenium daily showed a 79% improvement in immune function. And research published in The Lancet in 2000 found that HIV/AIDS patients with low selenium levels were 20 times more likely to die from an AIDS-related illness than those with healthy levels. ANTI-OXIDATION. Selenium is an essential element in enzyme production. Your body adds it to proteins to form selenoproteins – antioxidant enzymes in the task force against free-radical damage and disease. ANTI-VIRUSES. It’s been found to fight retroviruses and the H5N1 virus (bird flu to you). More impressive, higher selenium levels have been shown to help slow the replication of the HI virus and the progression of HIV to AIDS. Dosage For maintenance, take 2 tablets daily. For infection or an immune-compromised state, take 3 tablets, three times daily, or consult your health practitioner.

The super- antioxidant complex from organic ocean algae. Great for Circulation, Pain control, Metabolism, Sexual performance, Hair loss, Memory, Allergy. It does something for everything. Why Ecklonia Cava? It stays in your system. The extract is hydrophobic, meaning it’s not water-soluble, but fat-soluble. As a result it can stay in the body for up to 12 hours –water-soluble nutrients, such as vitamin C and land-based polyphenols, often only stick around for 30 minutes or so. Clearly, EC Extract works harder for longer. Plus it can cross the blood-brain barrier and have an effect in the brain. It’s got super-antioxidants. Polyphenols and phlorotannins are known families of natural antioxidants. Polyphenols are made up of multiple interconnected phenol rings – and more rings mean more electrons can be absorbed from toxic free radicals. While other known antioxidants might have two or four rings a piece, the patented marine polyphenols in EC Extract have up to 13 active rings each, and therefore way more antioxidant power. Phlorotannins on the other hand are only found in brown algae and have been shown to reduce atherosclerosis and promote cardiovascular health. Among other things. It does so much more. Super free-radical grabbing skills, coupled with 12-hour staying power make the antioxidants in this extract particularly good at helping to protect and support multiple systems. Research suggests that EC Extract is actually 10 to 100 times stronger than similar quantities of land-based polyphenols and other antioxidants – even resveratrol and green tea catechins. Plus it’s super-safe. Clinical studies have found no side-effects associated with EC Extract treatment for a range of conditions at a range of doses. Ecklonia is an all-over antioxidant complex that is great for Circulation, Pain control, Metabolism, Sexual performance, Hair loss, Memory, Allergy. How? CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH Better blood pressure. Angiotensin-converting enzyme, or ACE, is an enzyme that’s known to cause hypertension and blood vessel constriction. Ageing and vascular risk factors are known to up levels of ACE. EC Extract can suppress this enzyme and so reduce blood pressure levels as effectively as certain ACE-inhibitor drugs. Cuts blood clots. Plasmin is an enzyme that breaks down blood clots. Anti-plasmin is a protein that blocks plasmin’s action. Fortunately EC Extract has a natural anti anti-plasmin effect. That’s why it helps thin the blood and reduce clots. Lower lipid levels. Can reduce bad LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels while increasing good HDL cholesterol levels. PAIN MANAGEMENT In arthritis. In treating osteoarthritis, EC Extract has been shown to reduce pain and inhibit the inflammatory COX enzymes. GLUCOSE BALANCE Better blood glucose levels. Its anti-inflammatory effect means EC Extract can also help to stabilise glucose levels and stimulate insulin sensitivity. HAIR-LOSS Prevents hair follicle death. Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 or MMP-9 is an enzyme that’s active in hair follicle destruction and hair loss. Good news for men (and some women) is that EC Extract is thought to down-regulate MMP-9 and so preserve follicles and fuller heads of hair. ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION Better blood flow where it counts. EC Extract clearly helps improve blood pressure and circulation. That’s why it’s thought to have such a sizeable effect on penile blood flow and erectile function. ALLERGIES Reduces allergic reactions. EC Extract has been shown to reduce allergic reactions and inflammation. Fewer side-effects. Even better, EC Extract can help manage allergies without the dizziness, drowsiness and other side effects seen with anti-histamine treatment. MEMORY Better brain function. The antioxidants in EC Extract are fat-soluble and can cross the blood-brain barrier. Increased alertness. EC Extract has been shown to give professional drivers a 48% reduction in drowsiness while driving, and students an 11% drop in tiredness while studying. More memory. Acetylcholine, or Ach, is a neurotransmitter linked to memory and cognition. EC Extract can increase Ach by 40% and reduce the enzyme that breaks it down by 60% to 80%. Which will give you a better chance of remembering this fact. Dosage For maintenance, take 2 tablets daily (800mg Ecklonia Cava Extract). This can be increased to 2 tablets twice a day (1 600mg Extract), or up to a maximum dose of 3 tablets four times daily.

100% Pure Astaxanthin-The world’s strongest natural anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. ANTI-X. Containing nature’s ultimate carotenoid antioxidant, AstaREAL L10, ANTI-X can help rescue the body from damage. Astaxanthin is reported to have over 500 times more antioxidant activity than vitamin E, to be up to 10 times stronger than beta-carotene, and to be more powerful than alpha carotene and lycopene. ANTI-X contains these carotenoids: Astaxanthin Lutein Beta-Carotene (Pro-Vitamin A) BENEFITS Villainous UV exposure UV light increases production of evil free radicals, increasing oxidative damage to lipids, eyes and skin. Astaxanthin may prevent damage caused by UV exposure. Infamous inflammation Astaxanthin has well-documented anti-inflammatory effects. In conditions related to inflammation by scooping up damaging reactive oxygen species that are released by inflammation. Important immunity The immune system is sensitive, prone to oxidative stress and free radical damage. Astaxanthin helps to strengthen it – promoting a healthier immune system. Bright eyes ANTI-X’s superpowers – lutein, zeaxanthin and Astaxanthin – act as the eye’s personal guards, protecting against light-induced damage. For starters, Astaxanthin can cross the blood brain barrier and take up positions in the retina. This is thought to promote eye health maintenance, and studies show that Astaxanthin may actually improve visual sharpness and relieve eye strain. Abominable ageing Tricky reactive oxygen species are believed to be behind some of the ageing process. Astaxanthin has been known to help cells survive the fight against oxidative stress, protect them against a decline in membrane function and guard mitochondria. Carotenoids, with antioxidant properties, are known for their ability to fight ageing. Dosage: Adults over 18 years of age: Take 2 capsules daily with food.
