We face various external health challenges at any age and in any environment. The cells building our body are exposed to various types of viruses and microbes which use them to multiply and spread.
Good nutrition provides a plethora of natural compounds that help form natural barriers against invading agents and support healthy immunity. Science increasingly shows that many of these compounds can also directly impair the abilities of these agents to invade our body. The entire plant kingdom produces these biologically active substances as powerful protection against viral, bacterial and other pathogenic factors. Many of these plants have been used for centuries to benefit human health.
Modern science shows that proper combinations of the most valuable plant ingredients potentiate their respective biological activities and expand the spectrum of beneficial effects.
The Dr. Rath YouCell™-V Synergy Formula contains a scientifically developed and tested combination of vitamin C and natural plant compounds that work in synergy to support optimum response to various health challenges.
Key synergy nutrients:
Vitamin C enhances the activity of immune cells, and is required to repair and regenerate collagen which is a critical component of the body’s natural barriers. Its documented health benefits include direct interference with the life cycle of viruses and other pathogens. Our body does not produce vitamin C and therefore it must be obtained from the diet.
Broccoli extract is a source of sulforaphane known for its antiviral, antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification properties.
Quercetin is a strong antioxidant that also enhances the absorption of resveratrol. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is important for healthy lung function.
Black tea extract has been known for its multiple health benefits including interactions with cellular receptors used by various agents to enter the cells.
Turmeric extract contains curcumin as its main ingredient. Through their antioxidant mechanisms, curcuminoid compounds support immunity and suppress inflammatory molecules which are responsible for the causes of the damage by viruses.
Baicalin is an active ingredient in Baikal skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) a plant which has been used in Eastern medicine for over 1000 years. It is known for its multiple health benefits including antiviral, antimicrobial and antioxidant effects protecting against free radicals and toxins.
N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is a stable form of the non-essential amino acid L-cysteine. It is a sulfur-containing amino acid that acts as a stabilizer for the formation of protein structures‚ and is also necessary for the formation of glutathione. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that helps keep cells healthy and protected against free radicals and oxidative stress. It is important for optimum lung health and function.
Naringin is a beneficial flavanone glycoside concentrated from grapefruit peel which gives grapefruit its characteristic bitter flavor. Naringin works synergistically with vitamin C to support cellular defenses.
Resveratrol is a polyphenol synthesized by plants in response to mechanical injury, ultraviolet irradiation and microbial attacks. It is commonly known for its anti-aging and antioxidant properties, however its health benefits are much broader and include antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and lung protective effects.
