Terranova Life Drink provides a deeply nourishing, intensely synergistic, energising foundation to cover those categories that are either missing from or are found in insufficient quantities in multivitamins and other supplements. The formulation is designed to provide efficiently ultilised nourishment. This may benefit those who have difficulty utilizing nutrition from their diet (such as the elderly and convalescing) but is equally beneficial for general use. Terranova Life Drink contains only naturally occurring nutrients (rather than added, concentrated nutrients found in multivitamins). As such, Life Drink can be combined with a multivitamin or multinutrient formulation. It mixes easily into water, milk or milk alternative, juices or smoothies.
The Magnifood complex provides:A BALANCED VEGETABLE PROTEIN BLEND
Pea and rice protein combined to provide a balanced protein with a complete amino acid profile that is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
RICE BRAN ACTIVES
Life Drink provides high levels of one of nature’s most nutritionally diverse food ingredients - stabilized rice bran solubles. For higher nutrient concentration and easier mixing, Life Drink contains only the soluble fractions of the rice bran (the nutritional portion with the insoluble fibre removed). Stabilized Rice Bran solubles provide more than 100 known antioxidants, high levels of naturally occurring beta glucans, tocotrienols, phytosterols, inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), B-vitamins, vitamin E, carotenoids, protein, complex carbohydrates, potassium and magnesium, as well as CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid and many other nutrients.
The freshwater microalgae spirulina and chlorella provide an extraordinarily high content of plant pigments (including chlorophyll and carotenoids), highly digestible protein (typically more than 55% in spirulina), enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
The ten potent, enzymatically active, 100% freeze dried green foods in Life Drink provide a remarkable array of powerfully protective phytonutrients, such as sulforaphane, indole-3 carbinol, glucosinolates and carotenoids, as well as live enzymes, chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals etc. In addition to their deeply nourishing properties, many of the compounds in these plants support healthy detoxification processes and exert potent free radical-scavenging effects.
Life Drink contains ten different enzymatically-active, 100% freeze dried fruits which have been selected due to a collective flavonoid and carotenoid profile providing a broad colour spectrum from blue, to purple, to red, to orange, to yellow. These plant pigments (such as anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, catechins, quercetin, kaempferol, lutein, lycopene, zeaxanthin and beta carotene) and other phytonutrients account for the high ORAC antioxidant rating of many of these fruits as well as their associated supportive influence on connective tissue, the cardiovascular system, inflammatory processes, etc.
OMEGA 3,6,9 OIL BLEND
The oil blend in Life Drink provides essential omega 3 and 6 fatty acids from flax oil and GLA-rich borage oil respectively, and omega 9 from olive oil. The breakdown of the omega 3, 6 and 9 is in the desired 2:1:1 ratio.
Various varieties of ‘medicinal’ mushrooms have been the subject of countless re- search studies highlighting the protective and immune supportive properties of their abundant polysaccharide fractions. Reishi is especially rich in beta glucans polysaccharides and shiitake is well-known for its content of the highly researched beta glucan called lentinan.
LIFE DRINK MICROFLORA
The unique balance of beneficial bacteria in Life Drink is based on two main factors - the scientifically proven properties and applications of each type and the need to provide strains that will cover the entire intestinal tract and maintain a highly advantageous environment in the gut. The Rosell and CHR Hansen strains used in Life Drink represent the cutting edge in probiotic technology, providing optimal viability and high stability against digestive and environmental destruction. These beneficial organisms have been enhanced with the potent prebiotic, arabinogalactan.
LIFE DRINK DIGESTIVE ENZYMES
Life Drink provides a 1/4 strength version of the identical enzyme blend used in Terranova’s powerful Digestive Enzyme Complex. This blend, which benefits from National Enzyme Company’s state-of-the- art technology, provides unique raw materials which have been shown to be stable within a pH range between 2 to 8 - making them potentially viable throughout the entire digestive tract. This range of enzymes digests not only proteins, starches and fats, but also potentially problematic oligosaccharides (i.e., raffinose) and disaccharides (such as lactose and sucrose). This blend is enhanced with the digestive tonic, ginger root.
Indications: Provides general nutritional support, also during periods of convalescence, while also supporting general intestinal health (inclusive of detoxification) and healthy blood sugar levels.
