Understanding bioactive ingredients and their benefits
Calcium + Vitamin D :
A simple solution to strengthen bones and teeth
Calcium and Vitamin D are essential for healthy bones and teeth. However, most Canadians do not get their recommended daily intake of calcium
While Vitamin D is essential for the body to absorb calcium, it also helps prevent osteoporosis, a disease that deteriorates bone tissue.
Essentiel in the fight against free radicals
Phytonutrients are natural compounds found in plants such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes. They work with other essential nutrients to promote good health. Polyphenols (natural antioxidants produced by plants) are the largest group of phytonutrients and can be found in berries, apples, citrus, tea and nuts. They have antioxidant properties and are naturally found in brightly coloured fruit.
The main natural antioxidants are: bioflavonoids, carotenoids, Vitamin C & E and selenium.
The body produces free radicals in response to stress, the environment and aging. It’s important to remember that a healthy diet that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of certain cancers. That’s where antioxidants come in and help protect the body from the damage caused by free radicals.
Incredible health benefits
Omega-3, also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids, have multiple health benefits on the cardiovascular and nervous systems. They are essential for the body and your overall health, making them an important part of your diet.
There are three main types of omega-3 fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA contributes to keeping hair, eyes and nerves healthy, especially in children under two years of age. A healthy diet that is low in saturated fat and trans fat can reduce the risk of developing heart disease. Juices and other foods with omega-3 tend to be low in saturated fat and trans fat.
A diet rich in omega-3 would also promote the production of neurotransmitters to increase your energy levels and boost your mood, thereby affecting your emotional stability and your overall well-being.
your immune system’s ally
Fat-soluble vitamin A is vital for cell growth, it participates in the transcription of certain genes and the synthesis of certain proteins. This vitamin also promotes iron absorption and appears to play a role in regulating inflammation.
It is therefore an important element in your body, and is present in animal-based foods, where it is found in the form of retinol.
Since vitamin A was first identified in the retina, it is called retinol. It also occurs in the body as retinoic acid (in bones and mucous membranes) or retinyl palmitate (reserves stored in the liver).
the regenerative protein
Skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues—the protein called collagen is found in all structures of the body. It represents 30 to 35% of the total proteins of the organism, and ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of all these tissues.
Collagen is largely responsible for the elasticity and strength of the skin, and its breakdown leads to aging and wrinkles.
Collagen contains 19 different amino acids, with a particularly high content of hydroxyproline, glycine and proline. However, collagen is not a complete protein because it does not contain tryptophan, one of the nine essential amino acids.
