Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is required for tissue growth and repair, adrenal gland function, and healthy gums. It also aids in the production of anti-stress hormones and interferon. It also protects against the harmful effects of pollution, helps to prevent cancer, protects against infection and enhances immunity.
Bioflavonoids are nutrients, which are related to the Vitamin C family. They cannot be synthesized by the body, and therefore must be obtained from food or supplements. Bioflavonoids are helpful in nourishing the integrity and strength of capillaries and cells.
There is one sure thing for colds and flu - there’s a lot of it about. How much is actually about varies from year to year, but you can be sure that you will catch them sometime. This must be the golden age of colds and flu. So many people crowd together indoors in winter, at home, at work, at school, and in travelling. This makes the chances of coming into close contact with someone who has one of the viruses so much more probable. Even though the viruses are quite hard to catch, this means there are a lot of chances when you are exposed to them in everyday life. They are also travelling all around the world in a matter of hours. Colds and flu are having a very successful jet-set life travelling all around the world, and not just where it is cold, they are also at home in the heat.
We are all exposed to these viruses on a regular basis, but we do not get an infection every time. The great majority of times our body’s defences work well and we are not infected. Less often we are infected, but our body’s defences act quickly to kill the infection, without us ever being aware that we have been infected. Less often still we are infected and suffer mild symptoms. Thankfully, least often of all, we catch the virus and have a really bad infection. How bad our infection becomes therefore depends on chance, the strength of the virus, and our body’s defences.
The usual way we catch the virus is to breathe them in on droplets in the air when someone sneezes. They can also easily be caught by touching something with the virus already on it, such as a cup, door handle, or telephone. The virus sticks to our hand, and then we touch our eye or nose and it sticks there. From our eye it is washed down with our tears into the nose.
Your first line of defence is the layer of mucus lining your nose. Unfortunately central heating can dry this, making it less efficient at preventing infections pass through.
The flu virus is more infectious than a cold virus because it can last longer in the air, and still be infectious. This is why a new strain of flu can be so dangerous, we may not have any natural resistance to it, and can spread all over the world so quickly, affecting so many people. This makes any new strain of flu a potential major killer on a world wide scale, as without any natural resistance to it flu can kill even fit and healthy people.
The virus attacks the cells lining the nose and throat, and infects them. It only takes one virus to infect one cell. Each infected cell is taken over by the virus, and it makes many copies of itself, kills the cell, and releases these new viruses to infect other cells. This happens so quickly that within 12 hours of first arriving there may be a million cells killed in the nose and throat.
The nose and throat are now awash with viruses, and this is the time when we are most likely to pass the infection on to someone else. Usually by blowing (or wiping) our nose with our hands, and touching something before washing them. What we touch could be a door handle, a light switch, a telephone, a newspaper or a cup. The virus is infectious, and waiting for someone to touch it, and then touch their eye or nose, and spread the infection. Sneezing also spreads the infection into the air.
You are now the reluctant owner of a cold or flu infection

Wild Yam is widely used in the world today to supply nutrients essential for optimal glandular function. It nutritionally benefits the urinary, nervous and respiratory systems, too. In herbal medicine, Wild Yam is a remedy that can be used to relieve intestinal colic, soothe diverticulitis, and ease dysmenorrhea, ovarian & uterine pain, as listed by the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia. It is also of great use in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, especially the acute phase where there is intense inflammation.
L-arginine is a non-essential amino acid which is abundant in protamines and histones, these are proteins associated with nucleic acids.
L-arginine is used by the immune system to help regulate the activity of the thymus gland, which is responsible for manufacturing T lymphocytes. (These are the T-cells, which assist the immune system and body defences). For this reason it may be a very useful nutrititional supplement for people suffering from AIDS and other diseases which suppress the immune system.
In the pancreas it is used to release insulin, in the pituitary gland, it is a component of human growth hormone.
It is important in liver health and assists in neutralizing ammonia in the liver, while it is also involved in the skin and connective tissue, making it important for the healing and repair of soft tissue, the formation of collagen and in the building of new bone and tendons.
It is required in muscle metabolism and helping with weight control since it facilitates the increase of muscle mass, while reducing body fat.

No Matter What Your Age...You Need Antioxidants!
GIVE YOURSELF THE ANTIOXIDANT ADVANTAGE!
Are Antioxidants Important?
Studies have shown that antioxidants may offer the best protection your body has against damaging free radicals!
A free radical is an unstable molecule that steals an electron from a stable molecule in order to satisfy its need for repair. In doing so, this free radical destabilizes the stable molecule and creates another free radical in a vicious chain reaction of cellular destruction. A single free radical can cause damage to millions of other molecules in you body, preventing your body from functioning properly! This molecular destruction is continually occurring in your body!
Free radicals attack us from many different environmental sources every day. Some of which are: alcohol, tobacco, prescription drugs, smoked and barbecued food, harmful chemicals and additives in the foods we eat, sun bathing and pollutants in the air we breath. They assault your cells, large enzyme complexes, Vitamin C, and DNA. After age 28, the major source of aging is the production of free radicals. And with age, the amount of free radicals we produce increases. Scientists have determined that very large amounts of free radicals accumulated in your body, may significantly shorten your life span.
HEREIN LIES THE IMPORTANCE OF ANTIOXIDANTS!
Studies over the last 20 years have shown that free radical fighters found in a certain group of nutrients, namely antioxidants, can protect against a great many free radical initiated diseases. Antioxidants extinguish free radicals!
Free Radicals cause oxidation in the blood. Once oxidation occurs, disease can result. Antioxidants keep free radicals from causing oxidation in the blood, thus neutralizing disease. Also, stress, chemical pollution, environmental pollution, and the normal aging process increase the demands put upon the immune system.
Studies indicate antioxidants do more than protect against free radicals; they also stimulate the immune system's response to help fight existing diseases.
Antioxidants and three major ways they ward off premature aging and disease.
"THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH"?
Antioxidants are renowned for the protection they offer us against oxygen damage and free radicals. Free radicals are believed to be partially responsible for the effect of aging ("Mayo Clinic Health Letter", August 1993). Scientists have discovered a link between longevity and the levels of antioxidants in the body. The higher the levels of antioxidants, the longer a person can be expected to live.
As we age, our bodies produce fewer and fewer antioxidants. The accumulation of cellular damage and rubbish from incomplete cellular repair, fuels the aging process. Free radicals cannot be completely avoided as they are produced as a part of normal cellular function.
Fortunately there is a solution. Supplementing the diet with antioxidants dramatically slows this aging process. Antioxidant nutrients stabilize and neutralize the harmful effects of the free radicals. Antioxidants have been shown in many studies to slow, halt, and, in some cases, even reverse the effects of aging caused by free radical damage.
Cancer Risk Decreased
Hundreds of different studies suggest that taking an antioxidant supplement is linked to a reduced risk of virtually all cancers. ("Mayo Clinic Health Letter")
Cataract Risk Decreased
Cataracts are suspected to be caused by the oxidation of protein in the eye. Dozens of studies show that Vitamins C and E, and Beta-Carotene may help prevent some lens clouding.
The Antioxidant Solution
To maintain our health and well being, it is clearly imperative that we must supplement our diets with natural antioxidants.
