Medox ® - The natural way to boost your immune system

Bilberries

 

In nature anthocyanins act as the plants' own immune defence system.

In the body, international clinical research has shown that anthocyanins are known to have a variety of positive health effects and to possess strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

The body needs Antioxidants to protect against a surplus of 'free radicals'.

Free radicals are produced as part of the natural process that involves the burning of oxygen in the body but there are external factors that can cause a harmful imbalance in the amount of free radicals in the body such as tobacco smoke, air pollution, UV radiation, stress, alcohol, and poor diet.

This imbalance is known as 'oxidative stress.'

If too many 'free radicals' build up then they can cause damage to cells and tissue, leading to immune deficiency illnesses, diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease and cancer.

Our most important source of antioxidants is fruit and vegetables. Research shows that an ideal diet should give us a surplus of 200-250mg of antioxidants each day  ("5 a day").

Many people would benefit from an extra daily supplement of antioxidants.

Of all the different fruits, berries and plants in the world, Scandinavian bilberries (vaccinium myrtillus) provide the richest source of antioxidants in the form of anthocyanins which are the pigments that give them their blue colour.

 Bilberries top the list when it comes to the antioxidant strength of berries, fruits and vegetables.  Trials have show that they are 12 times more antioxidant than wine grapes and up to 20 times more antioxidant than E vitamins.

 
Unlike other extraction processes Medox® is produced by a patented chromatographic process that ensures the anthocyanin molecule is not destroyed. It is essential for the molecule to remain intact in order for it to be absorbed and used effectively by the cells.
