Quercetin is a powerful antioxidant found in foods like blueberries, red apples, grapes and red onions. It naturally stimulates the body's ability to produce more energy and is a natural anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory agent.
The health benefits of pinecone extract were first documented in 500 A.D. by the Greeks. Since that time, the extract has been used in modern day Japan where it has long been associated with an increase in health and longevity. Pinecone extract is an all-natural botanical compound with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and it acts to bolster the immune system by promoting dendritic cell development. These mature dendritic cells stimulate super-fighter T-cells which your body uses to protect the immune system by responding to bacteria and foreign invaders.
Used for centuries by the Japanese as an herbal remedy, Black Currant (Cassis) is known as the King of Berries and has long been recognised as being one of the most health-promoting fruits in the world. Locked inside this super fruit are illness-fighting components including anthocyanins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6. Black Currant berries are also packed with Vitamin Bs, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, calcium, magnesium, beta carotene, dietary fibre, and tons of other helpful vitamins and nutrients. Life Force has carefully chosen the origin of the Black Currant used in Vitali-C Plus in order to optimise health benefits, flavour and colour. Grown in an ideal climate in New Zealand, our Black Currant benefits from the country's pure mountain waters and uncontaminated, fertile soils. New Zealand Black Currant scores more than twice as high as blueberries, and six times higher than red grapes in ORAC testing; evidence of the magnificent antioxidant properties of the Black Currant grown in this region.
Vitamin C a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth and development. Because it is water-soluble, the body is unable to store this essential vitamin, so it must be consumed daily. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant that can help fight free radicals, increase the absorption of iron, and helps to produce collagen. Vitamin C boosts your immune system and increases white blood cell production as well. It even aids the repairing and maintaining healthy cartilage, bones and teeth. Life Force has a long history with Vitamin C. Dr. William Saccoman led our Nutritional Advisory Board for many years and he worked closely with Nobel Prize recipient Linus Pauling who is known as the "Father of Vitamin C". Pauling's research shows that Vitamin C is a powerful defense support for the body.
