Vitamin C

Vitamin C is probably the best known vitamin and belongs to the group of water-soluble vitamins. While most animals can synthesize their own vitamin needs, humans must resort to dietary sources. Nutrients of animal sources contain very little Vitamin C, while green plants and fruit provide most of our vitamin C supply. Some plants contain particularly large quantities, for example 1-2 % of the dry weght of rosehip is vitamin C. In its pure form, Vitamin C was first isolated by Albert Szent-Györgyi who found it in adrenal glands in 1928. In 1931, he identified them in lemon juice and bonnet pepper. Szent-Györgyi was awarded Nobel Prize in Medicine for this discovery in 1937.

Main natural sources: citrus fruit, berries, green and leafy vegetables, tomato and pepper.

Why is Vitamin C important?

Vitamin C contributes to our energy-producing metabolic processes, to the maintenance of normal psychological function, to the operation of the nervous and the immune systems. It also helps the formation of collagen and because of this, it maintains healthy skin, blood vessels, cartilage, bones, teeth and gums. It helps reduce fatigue, contributes to regenerating the reduced form of vitamin E and increases the absorption of iron. It contributes to the protection of cells against oxidative stress, and to the normal function of our immune system during or after intense exercise.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D belongs to the group of fat-soluble vitamins. Vitamin D3 is produced from the dehydrocholesterol produced by the liver by the action of sunlight on the skin. Vitamin D is formed when sunlight hits skin. Ultraviolet rays convert the steroids within the skin to vitamin D. The kidneys and the liver complete the positive effect of the ultraviolet rays and give the opportunity for vitamin D to exert its activity and to transform into its active form. Some prefer to consider vitamin D as a hormone - one of those substances which is produced by the endocrine glands. The main natural sources are fish liver oil, sardines, herring, tuna, salmon, milk and diary products.

Why is Vitamin D important?

Vitamin D helps maintain normal calcium level in blood and the normal absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphor. Phosphor is involved in the maintenance of healthy bone structure. Vitamin D plays a role in cell division, helps the maintenance of healthy muscles, bones and teeth. It also helps the normal function of the immune system.

Rosehips in nature

Since ancient times, Rosa canina (dog-rose or hedge-rose) is considered the queen of flowers. However, this noble plant becomes even more interesting when the gorgeous petals fall and the yield – the rosehip, which is like a smaller sized cherry, is ripened. The rose-hips are collected when they have bright red color but are still flexible. Rosehip's most valuable active ingredient is ascorbic acid. Due to the favorable composition and pleasant flavor, rosehip is used both as an herb and as food or a drink. You can make a tea from it or eat it as jam which also provide beneficial physiological effects. It is an ideal dietary supplement.

Acerola in nature

Acerola, also known as Barbados cherry, can grow to 5 meters high. It is a deciduous tree, which produces large amounts of 1-2 cm diameter red fruit. The fruits are soft, juicy and have sweet flavor. Acerola is self-sown, but it is grown in Central America, in the Northern Region of South America, in Brazil and Jamaica. This fruit's biggest value is that it contains a significant amount of vitamin C. Its vitamin C content decreases as it ripens and as such it is harvested while it is green.

Inulin and microflora

Microflora is formed by beneficial, living microorganisms, which survive the acidic environment in the gastrointestinal tract and help maintain the balance of healthy intestinal mircroflora. Our products contain high numbers of bacterial florea and inulin which helps their reproduction.

Probioticts also known as microflora is of Greek origin meaning life. R. B. Parker was the first who used the term probotic in 1974 for organisms and substances responsible for the balance of intestinal tract. The characteristiscs of probiotics are: human origin, non-pathogenic, resistant to the digestive effects of gastric acid, bile, saliva, pancreatic and intestinal fluids. They retain their resilience in food shelf life and technological processes. In addition, probiotics are capable of adhering to mucosal cells, have antimicrobial activity against potential pathogens, and reduce the adherence of pathogenic microbes to the mucosal surface. Probiotics are mostly lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria. Most of the best-known probiotic lactic acid bacteria strains are Lactobacillus, smaller portion is Streptococcus genus.

Prebiotics are natural nutrients, that are the sole nutrients of probiotics therefore promote their reproduction and prevalance. In the oral cavity and the gastrointestinal tract, the digestive enzymes do not break down the prebiotics and thus can reach the large intestine undigested. Prebiotics are dietary fibers, but water-soluble, therefore one of the best dietary fibers. In addition to their function of dietary fiber, their real utility lies in the fact that they are the exclusive nutrients of probiotics. Because of the lack of digestible nutrition in the large intestine where there is little food, the consumed prebiotics offer the possibility of the reproduction of human-friendly intestinal bacteria.

Many foods contain prebiotics, for example: Jerusalem artichoke, chicory, onions, garlic, leeks, artichokes, whole grains, wheat, banana, flax, spinach, cabbage, chard, mustard, berries, legumes, milk and most mature cheese.

Inulins are a type of prebiotics and actually dietary fibers that reach the large intestine undigested, enhance the reproduction and prevalance of probiotics.

Their role: digestion, balance of the intestinal flora
Our bodies are connected with the outside world through our intestinal system that is about 7 – 9 meters in length (the largest area in our body). Therefore it is vulnerable by the potential attack of pathogens and toxic substances. Normally there are about 200 to 400 different types of bacterial strains in our bowels. In fetal life beneficial bacteria dominates in 95-98%. Healthy intestinal flora provides protection against a variety of pathogens, ensures the integrity of intestinal mucosa and helps the absorption of the needed nutrients. They produce many essential vitamins for our body. If the gastrointestinal tract's defense mechanisms weaken, it can cause intereference in the absorption processes.

In order for probiotics to be effective in their environment, a large number is required which is at least 108 c.f.u./gram in the body.

What does the c.f.u. expression mean?

c.f.u.: colony-forming units per milliliter, the number of viable microorganisms. The amount of bacteria is usually measured this way in products. However, inulin is given in milligram. As appropriate doses of at least 109 c.f.u. is accepted.

 

What kind of probiotic products are effective?

-

It contains of an appropriate volume of germs, the minimum quantity proposed by specialist is 108 or 109 c.f.u.

-

Prebiotics help the reproduction of probiotics, therefore products should contain inulin or fructo- oligosaccharides.

-

They resist the effects of stomach acid, bile and digestive enzymes, so the live beneficial bacteria can reach the large intestine, where they are able to adhere and reproduce. One essential condition is that the bacteria keep their viability during their passage through the gastrointestinal tract.

-

A good probiotic product should contain at least 5-6 strains, as we intend to make up the intestinal flora's multi-culture.

-

During the warranty period and during technological processes they keep power of resistance.

One Year Products contain 6 types of bacterial strains in elevated quantity as well as Inulin for increasing efficiency.
