Blend of carefully selected substances, which are the best source of antioxidants. It provides excellent protection against the potentially damaging effects of free radicals that cause aging of the body and are the cause of many serious diseases. The product naturally strengthens the body and can be used prophylactically by both women and men. It will be ideal for allergy sufferers. Quercetin reduces the secretion of histamine, has anti-allergic effect and is recommended especially to people who have hay fever. When it comes to antioxidants there are no specific recommendations for their dosage. Two capsules once or twice a day are enough, because the active ingredients are highly concentrated. I am suggesting to take it during the main meals, to ensure optimal absorption and bioavailability of active ingredients. An additional benefit will be streamlining the process of digestion. The product is based on natural ingredients, so without concern may be used for a long time.

Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, 1-methylotheobromine) is a purine alkaloid occurring in the natural state in plants (Coffea arabica, Camelia sinensis, Paulinia cupana, Ilex paraguariensis), which acts as a natural pesticide, acting toxic to insects. Peculiar smell and taste also deters herbivores. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for action activation. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and rapid post-workout recovery. In the sports supplementation, caffeine is used as a stimulant nervous system. It has the thermogenic potential and in combination with other substances (e.g. Polyphenols, both occurring in coffee beans, such as cocoa beans, tea leaves and mate) can effectively participate in the reduction of body fat. It is included in many dietary stimulants (creatine stacks, no-boosters, beverages). It is a component of fat burners. It is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements.
Dosage: 100-600 mg per day. Due to the long release of activity should not be used in the evening, before sleep.
What is turmeric root extract?
Turmeric root extract is powdered turmeric in reduced volume in order to achieve as high active curcuminoid concentration as possible.
Turmeric is a spice that gives dishes a characteristic yellow colour. However, apart from its culinary advantages, it is also valued for its great health-promoting potential, which is why it is sometimes called the “Queen of Spices”. The main active substance in turmeric root is curcumin, which has a strong anti-inflammatory effect. In turn, reducing inflammations helps to relieve pain and inhibit the development of cancer.
People who use turmeric extracts can notice an improvement in the parameters marking blood sugar levels and the condition of the cardiovascular system, which is visible in an optimised lipid profile, reduced hypertension, and enhanced blood flow. Curcumin also helps to inhibit DNA molecule damage and reduce oxidative stress. The advantages of curcumin can be experienced by people struggling with the symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders as well.
