AquaSource Super Antioxidant is a powerful combination of carefully selected natural ingredients. Each of them alone has a beneficial effect on the body, but when combined their beneficial effect is further enhanced.
Regular intake of antioxidants prolongs life and improves it qualitatively. This is due to their ability to neutralize free radicals – highly reactive molecules that damage the structure and function of cells and are the cause of degeneration, aging and disease, including cancer. The main sources of free radicals are sun exposure, smoking, high stress, polluted environment, radiation, flying by plane, etc. The body has its own antioxidants, but over time they are not always able to cope with the ever-increasing negative factors.
CAO protects all cells from various damages and is extremely useful in:
- active or passive smokers (anticarcinogenic action);
- Exposure to polluted air, car fumes, toxins and radiation;
- excessive exposure to sunlight (summer and winter holidays, solarium);
- physical and nervous-mental overload, stressful situations;
- Increased risk of cardiovascular, liver, degenerative and cancer diseases;
- after 35-40 years of age to slow aging and maintain good health;
- during pregnancy to reduce the risk of congenital anomalies and birth defects;
- to maintain young, healthy and elastic skin and reduce wrinkles;
- to prevent varicose veins and slow their development.
It is extracted from the bark of the Mediterranean pinyon (an evergreen coniferous tree). It has been known since the 16th century, when severely ill sailors suffering from scurvy and threatened with death were cured with the help of a decoction of piñon bark. Observations over the past 400 years have shown that pycnogenol is completely harmless and has amazing health benefits. It is known as the “food of youth” for its ability to strengthen skin, joints and blood vessels. As an antioxidant, it is 20 times better than Vit. C and 50 times of vit. Е. It contains over 40 biologically active ingredients, mainly bioflavonoids and proanthocyanidins. Flavonoids activate the action of many enzymes and help us to enjoy a longer and better quality of life, to be healthy and to look younger. They can protect us from eighty diseases, including cancer, heart disease, arthritis, stroke, diabetes, and most other non-microbe-caused diseases linked to the harmful chemical effects of free radicals.
Pycnogenol is a powerful antioxidant, neutralizes free radicals and is perhaps the prime candidate for further research in relation to cancer prevention. It is water-soluble and absorbed very well. In the body, it retains its activity for 72 hours. Reduces much more efficiently than vit. Is the damage caused to tissues by free radicals. It also reduces inflammation and improves blood circulation, especially in the smallest capillaries. It also stabilizes red blood cells and maintains their necessary elasticity; strengthens weak blood vessels by stabilizing collagen and elastin and as a result protects against microhemorrhages.
With hypertension, the strength of the capillaries decreases to pathological values. If hypertension is accompanied by capillary weakness, the likelihood of strokes and retinal hemorrhages increases significantly. High blood pressure in itself does not cause the blood vessels to burst, this occurs due to their reduced resistance and increased permeability. Capillary resistance can also be normalized by regular use of Pycnogenol.
Pycnogenol is extremely important for brain function, not only because it protects blood vessels, but also because it is one of the few orally ingested antioxidants that easily cross the blood-brain barrier to protect brain cells. Researchers are of the opinion that it improves sluggish and unhelpful memory because it benefits blood circulation and cell nutrition.
And here are some of the beneficial effects of pycnogenol observed so far:
- reduces the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, premature aging;
- rejuvenates and strengthens the skin, improving its elasticity and smoothness;
- reduces allergies (especially effective for hay fever, psoriasis and sun damage);
- has a positive effect on blood circulation (anti-inflammatory, strengthens capillaries, veins and arteries and makes them more resistant to trauma);
- relieves varicose veins, leg swelling and chronic venous insufficiency, reduces the risk of phlebitis, edema and inflammation;
- prevents and helps recovery after heart attacks and strokes;
- has a beneficial effect on the joints (improves their flexibility, reduces pain in swollen joints and the negative consequences of sports injuries);
- assists in the treatment of ulcer disease;
- increases the vitality of all cells, reduces the effects of stress, strengthens the immune system;
- improves vision and memory;
- reduces the complications of diabetes (angiopathy);
- relieves hay fever, asthma, chronic fatigue, etc.;
- protects the body against aging, degeneration and cancer.
Allergies, histamine and pycnogenol
Allergy is associated with the release of histamine from the cell. Pycnogenol and some other bioflavonoids prevent the release of histamine and therefore they are a much better approach to allergies than the use of antihistamines. Therefore, for hay fever and related allergies, many European doctors recommend pycnogenol in the first place as the most effective and with the fewest side effects. Specifically in relation to hay fever, they find it to be extremely effective, safe and cheaper than most synthetic medications.
Hope for MS patients and their families
MS has been shown to be associated with immune system problems – immune cells start attacking the myelin of your own central nervous system. Free radical damage is a major contributor to immune system dysfunctions. Pycnogenol helps in these functions. The activity of immune cells can be restored or increased with its help. With the use of pycnogenol, the number of leukocytes increases.
Pycnogenol crosses the blood-brain barrier and protects the brain in several ways: reduces free radical damage; improves neuronal resistance to hypoxia; strengthens small blood vessels and improves blood circulation; reduces inflammation in direct proportion to the dose taken.
It is particularly important that pycnogenol strengthens the blood-brain barrier itself and thus prevents the passage of leukocytes and antibodies into the brain tissue. This leads to a reduction in autoimmune processes – a major mechanism of damage in MS.
For MS sufferers, in practice, the combination of a super antioxidant, AFAs and essential fatty acids offers hope of reducing damage from the disease and restoring many functions due to improved brain nutrition. A great advantage is the harmlessness and numerous other beneficial effects on the body as a whole.
Impaired concentration and hyperactivity
Pycnogenol has a beneficial effect because it neutralizes the destructive action of free radicals already in the bloodstream before they attack, irritate and inflame the cells of the nervous system.
This results in a general calming effect, greatly increased attention and ability to mentally focus on a problem or task, reduced impulsivity in behavior, reduced aggressiveness, a subjective sense of mental comfort, and increased control over one’s own thoughts.
In children and adolescents, its effect is also reflected in: improved grades in school, increased discipline and restraint both in class and at home, improved relationships with siblings and peers, increased performance and improved cooperation with teachers and parents.
It is recommended that pycnogenol be taken with vitamins and minerals, which is achieved by combining it with AFA.
This is the most ancient tree species on Earth, which has been present in its flora since 200 000 years ago. In China, it is called the “Tree of Health” and has been used for more than 5,000 years. It has established itself as one of the most promising antioxidants because it neutralizes free radicals and absorbs some toxic chemicals that could otherwise damage DNA and the organelles of cells. It is especially useful for the smallest blood vessels – from it they become healthy and elastic. This is due to the markedly beneficial effect on cell membranes and connective tissue.
At the same time, Ginkgo biloba improves the strength and elasticity of erythrocytes and facilitates their passage through the capillaries. This improves blood circulation in the brain, limbs and anywhere capillaries are particularly narrow, pinched or kinked, such as in the eyes, inner ear, damaged areas of the brain and heart, etc.
It is used for the prevention and treatment of cerebral and peripheral circulation problems, concentration and memory disorders, distractibility, confusion, dizziness, vertigo, lack of energy, easy fatigability, depression, senile dementia, tinnitus, migraines, asthma, atherosclerosis, headaches and many others. It can improve the condition of people with stroke and heart attack, angina pectoris, diabetic microangiopathy, Raynaud’s syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.
Green tea contains chemicals called polyphenols, which are also powerful antioxidants. At the same time, it has twice less caffeine than coffee. People who drink 5 cups of green tea a day have been found to increase their vitality and become more resistant to disease, including cancer, heart attack and stroke, tooth decay, gum disease and more. In addition, its use normalizes cholesterol and helps avoid bad breath.
From the seeds of this plant is obtained silymarin – a well-established hepatoprotector that helps liver cells to recover and stabilize their membranes. This herb has been shown to improve the liver’s ability to purify the blood and protect it from the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol, drugs, pesticides, bacterial and other toxins entering the body from food, water and air.
Milk thistle is used in the treatment of hepatitis, cirrhosis and other liver diseases. However, its effect is much better when used by healthy people for prophylactic purposes. The liver, as the largest and most important chemical laboratory in the body, needs support to do its job well. Unfortunately, quite often, instead of support, it gets overloaded and so the conditions for poor health are created. In such cases, urgent measures such as regulating the diet and simultaneously taking specialized supplements (hepatoprotectors) should be taken.
Everyone knows that cranberries are good for eyesight as they are rich in vitamins. However, we hardly realize their true power. Especially people working on a computer, drivers. Aviators and all professions for which healthy eyes are required should take cranberries regularly.
If you love the mountain, you know how powerful its energies are. Imagine that for just one day you make the experiment of lying naked all day and all night at an altitude of about 2000 m. You will most likely need emergency help afterwards due to severe sunburn, dehydration and cold.
How, then, do blueberries withstand these conditions, and how do they survive the winter when wood and stone crack from the cold? This is apparently due to some extraordinary properties of theirs. It is worth seeking strength from them…
They are rich in phytohormones, enzymes, vitamins, proteins and natural antioxidants. No doubt they are very good for health – the grain of wheat, together with microalgae, symbolize self-renewing life. These are the two plants connected to the Sun in an extraordinary, unique way.
Super Antioxidant AquaSource combines the powerful antioxidant action of pycnogenol with the beneficial effect on microcirculation of Gingko biloba, the stimulating effect on the liver of milk thistle and the general rejuvenating effect of green tea. At the same time, wheat germ, herbs and algae provide a rich supply of vital nutrients. When taken daily, this provides the conditions for maintaining excellent health.
Some ingredients of this product are also found separately and used alone for the treatment and prevention of certain diseases. However, combining them is advisable because this way the same effect is achieved with smaller doses and, moreover, their effect is more comprehensive. No person is completely healthy and everyone needs support for one or another function – that’s why this broad-spectrum product with universal action is very useful for health. Moreover, its ingredients are not only antioxidant – they are herbs with a powerful prophylactic and regenerative effect.
