Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that penetrates the membrane of cells throughout the body, thereby boosting the health of skin, bone, tendon, and muscle cells as well as immune system function . Whole fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of bioflavonoids and beta-carotene that promote overall health and cognitive function by due to their powerful antioxidant properties [2, 3].
Research indicates that taking probiotics and digestive enzymes daily helps support optimal gastrointestinal and immune system function . Furthermore, probiotics (e.g., Lactobacillus strains and Saccharomyces cerevisiae) disrupt the growth of foreign invaders such as Candida and subsequently probiotics are often recommended to help disrupt infections, which in turn improves immune system activity .
Vitamin A that promotes wound healing [9-11]. Vitamins A and E help improve firmness and skin tone, thereby targeting the signs of premature aging .
Vitamin C, E, and selenium support healthy aging by promoting moisture retention, skin firmness and tightness, in addition to soothing skin irritation, stimulating hair growth, and boosting nail strength [13, 14].
Vitex helps target premenstrual issues such as cramps, breast tenderness, swelling, and food cravings [15, 16].
Moringa is potent botanical that provides numerous health benefits. Its active ingredients are polyphenols (antioxidants) that support brain, eye, heart, kidney, bladder, liver, pancreas, and reproductive health [19-21].
Vitamin C acts directly upon collagen metabolism by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers . Collagen production is vital for healthy skin, bones, tendons, and muscles. Whole fruits and vegetables contain powerful bioflavonoids and beta-carotene (e.g., carrots) that combat cell damage that is linked to free radicals and they subsequently promote detoxification, which dramatically improves health [2, 3]. Certain fruits and vegetables (e.g., beets, asparagus, etc.) boost blood and oxygen circulation as well as the transportation of nutrients to vital organs such as the heart and the brain [4, 5].
Probiotics support proper digestion and an active lifestyle by increasing the number of good bacteria in the gut, while digestive enzymes help ensure that food (e.g., carbohydrates, proteins, fats, etc.) are properly broken down and utilized by the body . Probiotics (e.g., Lactobacillus strains and Saccharomyces cerevisiae) also support optimal digestive function by releasing enzymes that help digest food as well as enzymes that target foreign invaders (e.g., Candida yeast) . They also promote the proper breakdown and transport of nutrients into the bloodstream .
Vitamin A appears to accelerate the epithelial (tissue-related) and vascular (e.g., blood flow) components of the healing process, thereby improving wound healing [9-11]. Vitamins A and E act directly upon collagen metabolism by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers, which helps reduce the signs of premature aging, including the appearance of wrinkles .
Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory, skin-smoothing, and photo-protecting properties, it helps the outer layer of the skin maintain its moisture, and it accelerates wound healing on the skin .
Vitamins C, vitamin E, and selenium improve the firmness of the skin and stronger nails by promoting enhanced collagen production, providing essential fatty acids that moisturize and soothe irritated the skin, and supplying skin cells with antioxidant protection from UV and other environmental agents [13, 14].
Vitex targets mood alterations, headaches, bloating, irritability, and anger, thereby improving menstrual problems [17, 18].
The antioxidants in moringa produce health-enhancing benefits for the whole body by targeting pro-inflammatory enzymes and protecting cells from toxin-induced damage. In doing so, moringa improves the body's ability to naturally target various health issues [19-21].
