Every day, the trillions of cells in our bodies are bombarded by the constant attacks of free radicals that can lead to cellular damage and accelerate ageing. A healthy diet consisting of a wide variety of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will help protect us from these attacks and reduce our risks of getting age related diseases.
It is not always possible for us to obtain all the nutrients from our diet. This is where supplementing with the right nutrients is needed.
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.
The body’s access to the right nutrients during cellular regeneration and renewal is critical to ensure the reproduction of healthy and vigorous new cells.
Besides their role in robust cellular multiplication, our body also needs sufficient amount of network antioxidants and other key minerals like magnesium and selenium to ensure that our cells can function optimally and live longer.
For optimal health, out of the hundreds of antioxidants found in our food and supplements, the most critical are the those that work together in the antioxidant network. 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 five network antioxidants are Glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Co-enzyme Q10, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
Besides their super antioxidant properties, each of them also plays specific roles:
Alpha Lipoic Acid serves a vital function in protecting the DNA of our cells from free radical attacks and damage, increasing the production of glutathione in the liver and facilitating the removal of toxic substances from our cells. Alpha lipoic acid is also used to treat toxic radiation exposure, mushroom poisoning and complications due to diabetes.
Co-enzyme Q10 is the essential nutrient that fuels the mitochondria found in our cells. Mitochondria serves as the power house in our cells and burns sugars to generate energy for us to do work. The body naturally makes CoQ10 in the liver. But the production decreases in an ageing liver or is inhibited by statin medication. Hence, the supplementation of this nutrient in our diet could have a very significant impact in our overall health and life expectancy. A deficiency in CoQ10 could lead to sluggish mitochondria and the incomplete combustion of sugar. This can potentially lead to cellular decay or mutations that can lead to the onset of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, or even cancers.
Glutathione is the most important master antioxidant in our body. It is required for the maintenance of our health, youthful physique and to keep us free from chronic diseases and the scourge of ageing at bay. However, glutathione is poorly absorbed when taken as a supplement and needs to be made manufactured in the liver. The supplementation of alpha lipoic acid has been found to be a most effective way of boosting glutathione concentration.
Vitamin C is a key vitamin that helps to maintain our immune system, boost wound healing and in the formation of connective tissues such as cartilage and collagen, and helps strengthen the walls of our blood vessels. Vitamin C is known to recycle vitamin E from the antioxidant network and is recognised as an anti-ageing vitamin and for good for heart health.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects our cells from attacks from reactive oxygen species. It ability to prevent lipid oxidation helps to prevent the degeneration of our cellular membranes, particularly for our eyes and the adipose tissues. Vitamin E exist in eight forms under two broad categories, encompassing four types of Tocopherols and Tocotrienols each. VigourCells™ contains all the essential eight forms of vitamin E from natural sources. Tocotrienols are some of the most vital vitamins known for its powerful anti-cancer properties as well as its ability to remove plagues from blood vessels.
VigourCells™ also contains Inulin which is a prebiotic to feed our good gut bacteria and promote the production of essential small chain fatty acids (SCFA) that have been shown to burn adipose tissues and fight against some forms of cancers.
A range of natural and reduced form of vitamin Bs. Biotin (vitamin B7) to maintain cognitive functions and healthy hair, nail, mucous membrane and skin, Pyridoxal 5 phosphate (vitamin B6), Methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) and Folate in the form of L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (vitamin B9) that are essential for the formation of healthy blood cells and nucleic acid (DNA and RNA), neurological development, metabolism and nutrient absorption.
The mineral Magnesium that helps to maintain proper muscle function especially of the heart, normal electrolyte balance and helps in energy metabolism, tissue formation, bone development and good sleep.
Selenium is another essential but different to get in our diet mineral, that helps to maintain healthy thyroid function, mitochondria and telomeres.
