Terranova Beta Glucans Astragalus & Vitamin C Complex

  • Terranova Beta Glucans Astragalus & Vitamin C Complex is a complete resistance formula encompassing some of the most well-researched nutrients and botanicals for immune support.

    Beta glucans are naturally occurring polysaccharides (found in the cell wall of fungi and yeasts) which have been shown to improve resistance to infection by stimulating the body’s innate immune response. This keeps the immune system primed and ready to defend itself against pathogens and foreign invaders. Derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast, studies show that beta glucans specifically stimulate the activity of macrophages, which destroy invading pathogens and stimulate other immune cells into action. While there are several natural sources of beta glucans, only yeast-derived beta glucans have substantiated clinical trials relating to their immune supporting properties.

    This formula features biologically active trans-resveratrol (from Japanese Knotweed) which provides antioxidant support and studies show that it plays a role in immune modulation. Vitamin C is perhaps the most versatile nutrient with regard to supporting and enhancing immunity and each capsule contains 125 mg of this vitamin as magnesium ascorbate, which is a buffered, low acid form that is gentle on the digestive system. Turmeric root as Curcumin C3 Complex®, provides a complex mixture of curcuminoids (not just curcumin) and contains two other curcuminoids, demethoxycurcumin bisdemethoxycurcumin. These two compounds stabilize curcumin and more effectively protect against oxidative stress and inflammation than curcumin alone. Clinical studies have shown health supporting potentials of curcuminoids in the areas of immunity, healthy blood sugar balance, healthy cholesterol, and liver health. BioPerine® is a patented standardized extract obtained from black pepper, containing not less than 95% piperine. As well as possessing various nutrients and antioxidants, it is also a clinically proven bioavailability enhancer for nutrients. Additionally, research has demonstrated numerous health promoting benefits for BioPerine® including blood sugar control, brain and cardiovascular health and general cell-protection.

    Quercetin, a flavonoid found in numerous plant foods, has unique biological properties that may improve mental/physical performance and reduce infection risk. These properties form the basis for potential benefits to overall health and disease resistance as well as anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antioxidant abilities. Quercetin has also been shown to inhibit lipid peroxidation, platelet aggregation and capillary permeability. Lastly, this comprehensive formula also contains zinc in a highly bioavailable form (bisglycinate chelate TRAACS) to further support resistance.

    MAGNIFOOD COMPLEX features synergistic botanical and wholefood ingredients including:

    • ASTRAGALUS ROOT has been shown in studies to maintain healthy white blood cells and interferon activity and is recognised as a potent immune supporting botanical.
    • ELDERBERRY is the subject of extensive research for its potential value in supporting immune function in influenza and as such has become one of the most popular supplements for resistance. The impressive flavonoid profile is especially worth noting in this respect.
    • OLIVE LEAF has been shown to exhibit considerable immune support and antimicrobial activity, warranting its common use in assisting the body’s ability to combat bacteria, viruses and yeast/fungi.
    • MATCHA GREEN TEA CEREMONIAL GRADE AAA is the highest quality Matcha available. It is a source of many trace elements, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and chlorophyll. The key to Matcha’s super health-promoting abilities are polyphenol compounds known as catechins
