Various stressors can cause cells to become vulnerable to free radical damage as time goes by, which leads to inflammation, injured blood vessels, reduced oxygen supply to vital tissues and low immune function. Botanical Treasures delivers a broad spectrum of antioxidants that inhibit these degenerative processes by quenching various free radicals and other reactive oxygen species throughout the body, thereby normalizing gene behavior and decelerating the aging process.
Maintains Proper Cell Behavior
The body’s natural and normal cellular repair process can become impaired by heredity or the aging process. This gives rise to a phenomenon within specific gene polymorphisms that contributes to the etiology and pathogenesis of chronic disease. Botanical Treasures supplies the body with compounds proven to support cellular vitality and longevity by modulating gene and protein expression and ultimately influencing cellular and organ-system metabolism to protect the body against accelerated damage.
Offers Powerful, Broad-Spectrum Cellular Protection
Botanical Treasures contains potent herbal extracts, including curcuminoids from turmeric and a highly concentrated form of green tea, standardized for polyphenols and EGCG. Together, these ingredients have a synergistic effect and provide broad spectrum antioxidant protection from free radical damage and inflammation in brain cells and tissue. Proanthocyanins, as well as other phenols in Botanical Treasures have shown redox/antioxidant abilities 10-20X greater than those of vitamins E or C. As well, turmeric has been shown to be a much stronger cell-protective agent (antioxidant) than vitamin C and has protected DNA damaged by lipid peroxidation by 85 percent, compared to beta carotene at 50 percent and vitamin E at 57 percent while EGCG spares vitamin C oxidation.
Turmeric has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medical systems. Its active constituents, curcuminoids, have undergone extensive research in more recent times. They are powerful modulators of healthy prostaglandin and thromboxane activity, which are associated with inflammation and immune function. Curcumin has been proven to have greater antioxidant activity then vitamin C and protects against genetic damage caused by lipid peroxidation.
Green tea extract has proven synergistic effects with turmeric and is highly prized for its well-researched catechins, including epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) that exhibit significant immune and antioxidant effects. This herbal extract maintains and supports healthy cells and provides antioxidant protection against the damaging effects of environmental stressors.
Grape Seed & Skin
Grape seed extract is a rich source of anthocyanidins, proanthocyanidins and oligoproanthocyanidins (OPC). These unique antioxidant compounds cross the blood-brain barrier and provide free radical scavenging activity in the brain and the rest of the body. They promote healthy blood vessel integrity, revitalize connective tissue and support an optimal immune and inflammatory response. Grape skin extract contains the potent antioxidant resveratrol. Also found in red wine, resveratrol is thought to be responsible for red wine’s effects in promoting heart health.
A flavonoid found in high levels in apples and onions, quercetin provides antioxidant protection and is one of the most well-researched compounds shown to optimize cellular repair and the healthy removal of damaged cells from the body. It also displays anti-viral, anti-allergenic and cardio-protective properties.
Rosemary and Holy Basil
Rosemary works together with Holy Basil to supply a wide spectrum of natural antioxidants to the body and reduce free radical damage that occurs with aging. Rosemary has been used for centuries as a tonic and mild stimulant, to support digestion and to promote nervous system health. Holy Basil has a powerful effect on normalizing the inflammatory response while also optimizing adrenal gland activity. The adrenal stress glands play a key role in the inflammatory and immune system response both in the brain and in the rest of the body.
