| High Potency Multivitamin & Multimineral|
Ora-Plus is a unique formulation of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, anti-oxidants, herbs and glandulars.
Vitamins and Minerals are nutrients we need for the proper functioning of all biochemical processes of the body. Water soluble vitamins like C and the B complex need to be replenished daily, since they can not be stored in the body. Fat soluble vitamins, like A,D,E, and K are stored for longer periods of time in the body's fatty tissue and liver. Minerals are essential in the maintenance of healthy nerve function and body fluids, along with blood and bone formation.
Antioxidants protect our body from the formation of free radicals caused by chemical additives and preservatives in food, UV sunlight, junk foods, overexposure to pollutants, radiation and rancid oils. Free radicals are molecules in the body that accumulate and can do considerable damage to cells. Vitamin A (from Beta Carotene), C, E and the trace mineral selenium are strong antioxidants.
Beta Carotene is an antioxidant. It is water soluble with no known toxicity. Converts into Vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A nourishes the Thymus Gland, the "Master Gland"of the immune system.
Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein. The human body is made up of protein in our muscles, hair, nails, tendons, ligaments, glands, organs, enzymes, hormones, genes and body fluids.
L-Cysteine is an amino acid with a high sulfur content. L-Cysteine detoxifies harmful substances and protects the cells. It is considered one of the strongest antioxidants in the human body and works synergistically with other antioxidants like Vitamin E and selenium.
DL-Methionine is an amino acid that cannot be synthesized in the body and must be obtained from food sources or dietary supplements. One of its primary functions, in the human body, is the breakdown of fats.
Glandular Extracts are minute amounts of raw animal glandulars that become biologically active in the human cell. Each glandular extract enhances the functioning ability of the corresponding human organ or gland. Current research shows that when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and vitamins, glandular therapy can be very useful and safe.
Raw Glandular Extracts in Ora-Plus are from animals that are humanely treated, range free and raised on feed without pesticides.
