FAQ

What is VigourCells™?

VigourCells™ is an advanced scientific formulation of Elixir Botanica’s proprietary blend of the finest premium network antioxidants, naturally sourced vitamins, key minerals and inulin to provide essential nutrients to nourish our cells and gut bacteria. Network antioxidants are a group of antioxidants discovered by Dr. Lester Packer that were found to be essential for life. They have special properties to recycle and regenerate themselves thereby, extending their lifespan in protecting our cells. The four network antioxidants contained in VigourCells™ are Alpha Lipoic Acid, Co-enzyme Q10, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.

How many capsules of VigourCells™ should I take?

Recommended is 4 daily, 2 capsules twice a day. But if you are feeling a little under the  weather or going through oxidative stress, it is advisable to take up to 6 a day.
VigourCells™ can be taken before or after food, although it is best taken with some food.

Who would benefit from taking VigourCells™?

VigourCells™ has been very carefully researched and formulated to suit the widest population. Essentially, anyone can take VC as it contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are critical for our good cellular, thereby, general health. For example, our cells make lipoic acid and co-enzyme Q10. But as we age, natural production slows down.  Hence, taking VigourCells™ daily helps to replenish and supply the much needed lipoic acid and CoQ10 that we need.


What is the difference between VigourCells™ and other antioxidants?

VigourCells™ contains a special class of antioxidants that have the ability to rejuvenate themselves with the help of fellow members of the same class. These are known as NETWORK ANTIOXIDANTS, a group of super antioxidants that work synergistically together to extract optimal benefits for our overall health, starting from our cells.

Other antioxidants are lost to the system once they encounter free radicals.  But Network Antioxidants will donate electrons to their friends in the network and help them to rejuvenate and restore themselves back to the reduced form.

Of course, these antioxidants do not last forever as they will finally also be utilised by the cells to complete their function and work.  Hence, it is important to take your supplements daily and regularly.
