Why This Delicious “Health Cocktail” Can Make You Look Years Younger & Bolster Your Immune System
EllaVie Super Antioxidant Drink is the most potent legal health cocktail on the market, with health effects that will start to be felt from the very first swallow. With a shot of Ella Vie every day, you can vastly improve your health, ward off wrinkles, stay energised and enter at will the zone of ‘relaxed alertness’.
There are many other acai juices and extracts available but EllaVie is a cut above the competition because it has greater oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC). This is an indicator of quality measured by an independent laboratory and means EllaVie protects the body against oxidative stress more effectively. The average ORAC of five servings of fruit and vegetables is 2500 units but just one gram of VitaBerry™ in EllaVie provides 6000 ORAC units!
Oxidative stress occurs in all of us every day, as antioxidants fight to neutralise oxidizing agents that damage our cells. We are most likely to feel the effects of this stress in the morning upon rising, when we really ‘feel our years’ –– but over time oxidants leave their telltale marks on our bodies, faces and minds.
Antioxidants are part of the free-radical theory of aging and disease, which is the subject of one of the largest bodies of ongoing scientific research. The theory goes like this: oxygen provides the essential ingredient for life but also shortens it. As its name suggests, oxygen naturally oxidises whatever it comes into contact with, whether it be tarnishing your best silver, rusting the hulls of great ships, or wearing down our skin and tissue cells.
Oxygen readily combines with other elements and chemical compounds to form molecules known as free radicals, which are more damaging than oxygen alone. Many of these free radicals are the result of the innumerable normal, healthy reactions that take place as part of our metabolism every moment of the day. Some, such as from our bad foods and polluted air, create billions of free radicals that wreak oxidative havoc on our cells, bringing with it fatigue and ill health. What’s more...
This is What Causes us to Age Before Our Time
Aging is a process of slow oxidation and, when we are sick or hung over, our cells undergo more oxidation than usual. Even heavy aerobic exercise can be bad for us in that more oxygen means oxidation is accelerated. Oxidative stress is implicated in the onset and progress of infection and a host of diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and Alzheimer’s dementia.
Our bodies and other living things have natural protective systems and elements in place to prevent or limit the damaging effects of oxygen and free radicals. These antioxidant defences are fuelled by the enzymes, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other healthy substances in the food we eat. Common spices, nuts, seeds, herbs, fresh fruit and vegetables––even some plant algae––are the body’s greatest sources of antioxidants.
In all the fruit kingdom, berries are the most densely packed with nutrients and have the highest anti-oxidant content per volume of weight. These characteristics have evolved to make the berries’ taste irresistible to birds and to protect their tiny seeds as they travel through the birds’ digestive systems to be deposited and sprout elsewhere. Vitaberry™, a key base ingredient of EllaVie, is a patented, blend of fresh berries highest in youth-preserving anti-oxidants: wild blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, strawberry, prune, tart cherry, wild bilberry and grape.
Acai juice from the South American ‘energy fruit’ acai berry, full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Pomegranate juice, another prized component of Ella Vie, is being studied now as an ideal functional food, with antioxidant health benefits above and beyond that of its basic nutritional value. Similarly, green tea (black tea before it is fermented) and white tea (the tips of green tea leaves grown in high-altitude plantations) have received strong research attention, with their rich antioxidant content associated with reduced aging and disease occurrence in populations who often drink them. Coffee bean berries, also dense in antioxidants, is added to Ella Vie for extra punch.
All the above ingredients are freeze-dried to preserve and (for some compounds) even increase their antioxidant capacity, making EllaVie a formidable, all-in-one and once-a-day arsenal against oxidative stress.
