1. Ellagitannins from Red Raspberry Seed Powder
The raspberry seeds provide a concentrated source of dietary fiber, proteins, and polyphenolic compounds called ellagitannins; 5-6
- Ellagitannins hydrolyze naturally to form ellagic acid in small amounts in the body; 7-9
- Ellagitannins and ellagic acid participate in physiological, biochemical, or cellular processes in which their recognized antioxidant activity scavenges free radicals and prevents unwanted damage to cell membranes and other bodily structures, supporting DNA integrity and overall cell health; 10-12
- >Ellagitannins and ellagic acid build your immune system by acting to counteract, reduce, and also repair damage resulting from oxidative stress and inflammation, offering anti-proliferative cell activity; 13-16
- While we make no claims related to its impact on the cancer or other diseases, Ellagic Acid has also been found to kill some cancer cells – apoptosis – through in vitro laboratory experiments conducted at the Medical University of South Carolina. 1,2,4
- Ellagic acid enhances the clearance of mutagens and carcinogens from the serum through activation of liver detoxifying enzymes.
- Ellagic acid prevents the binding of mutagens to DNA.
- Ellagic acid does no harm to normal cells.
2. NeuStem Cell Nutrition Concentrate
- The NeuStem Sell Nutrition Concentrate incorporates Beta Glucans primarily sourced from oats and other key components.
- Beta glucans stimulate the growth of adult stem cells. The Neustem Cell Nutrition Concentrate Blend delivers a strain of Oat Beta Glucan that is particularly effective at supporting the body to support and maintain immune system strength; 4,5,6,7,8,9
- The Concentrate Blend also provides other naturally occurring ingredients that add to the renewal system of body cells.
3. Vitamins and Minerals
- A rich source of the most commonly needed Vitamins and Minerals
Additionally, the literature supports the ingredients as being supportive of vascular, heart and liver health. 17-18
