IMMUNE DEFENCE BENEFITS

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of connective tissue, blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, gums, skin, teeth and bones.

Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of the neurotransmitter, ‘norepinephrine’, critical to brain function and known to affect mood.

Research also suggests that vitamin C is involved in the metabolism of cholesterol to bile acids, which may have implications for blood cholesterol levels and the incidence of gallstones.

Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant. Even in small amounts vitamin C can protect essential molecules in the body such as proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from damage by free radicals (reactive oxygen species) that can be generated during normal metabolism as well as through exposure to toxins and pollutants (e.g., smoking). Vitamin C may also be able to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin E.

Furthermore, vitamin C plays an essential role in immune function, which is impaired by insufficient supply and re-established through supplementation. It exerts its effect via the promotion of T-cell maturation and for the circulating immune cells, which have 20 to 60 times higher vitamin C concentration than the surrounding plasma, it improves the motility of the neutrophil leukocytes.

In addition, vitamin C is required for the synthesis of carnitine, a small molecule that is essential for the transport of fat to cellular mitochondria for conversion to energy.

Zinc

Zinc is a micro-nutrient that is involved in the formation of many enzymes that catalyze important reactions in our body. Its antioxidant activity is of primary importance, as zinc is part of the enzyme super-oxide dysmutase (S.O.D.).

Zinc is especially found in bones, skin, the prostate gland and ocular tissue.

When dietary intake is inadequate, zinc is rapidly released from its small reserves in the body. These metabolic changes can impair growth, cause defects in wound cicatrisation, susceptibility to infections and problems with skin adnexa (skin, hair and nails).

Useful to prevent the common cold and infections, it has a protective effect on the reproductive system and on the ocular system.

Selenium

Selenium is a vital mineral for the human body that has numerous roles. What is selenium used for? It increases immunity, takes part in antioxidant activity that defends against free radical damage and inflammation, and plays a key role in maintaining a healthy metabolism.

According to studies, consuming foods with selenium — such as Brazil nuts, eggs, liver, tuna, cod and sunflower seeds — and/or taking selenium supplements can have positive antiviral effects, supports fertility and reproduction, and may even reduce the risk of cancer, autoimmune and thyroid diseases.

Take 2 capsules daily with breakfast.
