Starting in our twenties, our health and fitness is more subject to the effects of gravity, the environment, cellular changes, wear and tear and poor diet. These accumulate and, over time, become what we commonly call aging. The good news, however, is that an increasing amount of scientific evidence suggests we may be able to slow down this process.
Of key interest is a group of dietary supplements called antioxidants, which help to protect the body against free-radical damage. According to the free-radical theory of aging, these are “free” electrons that have broken loose from their attachment to the nuclei of oxygen atoms during the cellular energy-making process. They damage cells in an organism by stealing electrons in an effort to become stable, which (along with increases in free radicals caused by lifestyle and environmental factors) is said to result in many undesirable effects of aging. The “oxidative stress” caused to tissues by free radicals can be compared to oxidation of iron or steel that leads to rusting.** (You can easily read more about antioxidants and free radicals or consult with your doctor.)
With NutraRev! we have simply gathered many of the most popular antioxidants and created a combination of premium-quality and brand-name ingredients in a convenient and economical fresh natural-berry-flavor liquid dietary supplement.
The Liquid Revolution
No matter how good the vitamin or mineral supplement is that you start with, it is only as good as it is bioavailable. A supplement must be absorbed and assimilated into the body and be available at the proper area in order to be of use. All pills and capsules have to dissolve into liquid form before they can be absorbed and assimilated. Some people with weaker digestive systems (and digestive ability often weakens with age) don't fully break these down and the result is only partial or no absorption, so the pill or capsule doesn't do much, if any, good.
At Natural Vitality we begin with liquid. There is nothing to break down. The nutrients are naturally engineered for bioavailability. For those who have trouble taking pills and capsules, a liquid avoids this problem altogether. You also get fast action, as you don't have to wait for supplements to be digested.
NutraRev! combines high-antioxidant fruits with other powerful antioxidants as well as vitamins B6, C and E to protect against free radical activity.
We start with whole-food antioxidants in Natural Vitality's Super Fruit and Berry Antioxidant Blend of açaí, goji, mangosteen, grape, grapeseed, wild blueberry, raspberry, raspberry seed, cranberry, prune, tart cherry, wild bilberry and strawberry.
Pomegranate stands out because it has been shown to exhibit greater antioxidant properties than green tea, red wine and blueberry juice, among others. POMELLA Extract is a unique culmination of extensive university research that compared many different varieties of pomegranates for antioxidant properties and bioavailability. We selected POMELLA for its controlled production from orchard to patent-pending extraction process, resulting in superior bioavailability. Simply put-all pomegranate juice is not the same.
D-ribose (ribose) is used by all the body's cells and is essential in energy metabolism. Our bodies make it naturally, but our cells lack the ability to produce it fast enough or in sufficient quantity to effectively satisfy the loss of energy from our cells. That is why supplementing the body's natural processes with ribose can be so beneficial.
Bioenergy RIBOSE is a patented premium supplement that is clinically proven, naturally certified and has FDA GRAS (generally recognized as safe) approval.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
Alpha lipoic acid is a fatty acid found naturally inside every cell of the body. It plays a crucial role in the energy producing structures of the cells. ALA is a strong and versatile antioxidant, but only when there is an excess beyond what is needed to maintain metabolic activity. This helps explain the value of alpha lipoic acid supplementation
ALC is a modified amino acid which, like alpha lipoic acid, enhances energy production in the cells. While not itself an antioxidant, ALC works well in combination with alpha lipoic acid and is believed to be beneficial to optimal neurological function.
CoQ-10 is a vitaminlike substance manufactured by all cells in the body. It also plays a crucial role in energy production and is one of the body's most powerful antioxidants. Unfortunately, scientists say the production of CoQ-10 slows down with age (starting at age twenty, with a more accelerated drop after forty). We chose SolQ10BLUE because of its water solubility, superior bioavailability and lack of emulsifiers (chemical additives).
