Beta-glucans are natural immunomodulators of the human body, the so-called polysaccharides, or substances composed of glucose polymers. They are found in the cell wall of fungi, yeast, seaweed, etc… They act on a weakened immune system, faster wound healing, recovery after surgery, they stimulate macrophages and have anti-inflammatory effects. Another positive feature is that no interactions with other drugs are detected. Beta-glucans can be used for an extended period of time, without overdosing on them, however, sufficient daily intake is essential, which is 100-200 mg/day. The beneficial effects of beta-glucans have a positive effect on the immune system by stimulating cells, especially macrophages, and supporting their proper functioning. Cells of the immune system, neutrophils, macrophages, lymphocytes or NK cells (natural killer cells), have special so-called CR3 receptors on their surfaces, which are able to bind to beta-glucans, thus supporting their efficacy. Also beta-glucans bind to the complement – a group of proteins, which are involved in the defence reaction of the organism. Summing up, we conclude that the regular use of beta-glucans may lead to improved immunity against physical and psychological stress of the body.
A powerful remedy for disinfection. Active ingredient extracted from quality green parts of plants, which preserves soft tissues of the gastrointestinal tract, heals damaged mucous membranes and helps with digestive problems. Chlorophyll significantly neutralizes oxygen in the body, stimulates metabolism, prevents infections and eliminates the accumulated toxins in the body, since it is one of the most important antioxidants.
Flavonoids (blueberries and grapes)
Flavonoids are natural substances, a variety of chemical structures, with a very extensive group of polyphenolic compounds. Researchers devoted their attention to them in the 60s of the last century in the studies of Prof. Ancel Keys from the United States (Seven Countries Study), which confirmed that the incidence of myocardial infarction and mortality, caused by coronary heart disease, decreased significantly with the increased use of flavonoids in the diet. This fact was later confirmed in the Dutch, Japanese, Finnish, Italian studies and later the studies from other countries.
Flavonoids, a soluble substance in water, can be found in citrus fruits, small fruits, grapes, tomatoes, onions, apples and other fruits and vegetables, but mushrooms as well. It can also be found in various pulpy fruit juices, tea, coffee and alcohol – beer, red and white wine in particular. It is known that in Japan daily consumption of flavonoids is about 100 mg, and in Western Europe daily intake is estimated on 20-25mg.
OPC antioxidants are also included in bioflavonoids. They have a very antioxidant and detoxing effect. They protect the body from free oxygen radicals. They are important for the defence of the organism, thus enhancing the function of the immune system.
Liposoluble pigments, carotenoids, are found mainly in plants, algae and photosynthetic bacteria. They make a different kind of fruits, vegetables and flowers to be red, green and yellow coloured. For the first time, they were isolated from carrots. We are familiar with more than 600 different types of carotenoids. They are divided into two subgroups, according to whether or not they contain oxygen molecules. The first group of xanthophylls includes: lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin. The second group, which does not contain oxygen in its molecule, includes carotenes (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lycopene). Carotenoids play a major role in the metabolism of vitamin A. In some cases, they act as its precursors. Vitamin A is formed of them in the liver. The precursors of Vitamin A are also alpha-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin. Lutein is mostly concentrated in the lens, protects against the formation of cataracts and it is also present in the cells of the retina, where it participates in the production of pigments that enhance visual acuity and protect cells from oxidation. This is classified as a form of prevention of eye diseases, particularly macular degeneration, which leads to blindness. Therefore, regular daily intake is recommended in people with low daily intake, as well as for seniors with impaired gastrointestinal tract absorption. Lycopene is one of the most powerful antioxidants that can protect the cells from the effects of free oxygen.
A specific antioxidant that manifests its positive effects on the eyes. It is accumulated in the retina, preventing degenerative diseases of the retina and lens. It is one of the rare substances that absorb harmful blue light, making it one of the substances that protect eyes against the negative effects of UV radiation.
Lycopene is one of the most powerful antioxidants that can protect the cells from the effects of free radicals.
Lycopene, together with vitamin C and E, prevents oxidation of LDL-cholesterol. Lycopene is found mainly in tomatoes, watermelon, red and pink grapefruit and peppers.
