PhytoMatrix ® contains more than 16 natural ingredients, vitamins and plant nutrients that help maintain overall health. The combination of PhytoMatrix ® and OmegaMatrix ® provides additional support for healthy skin and helps maintain good memory.
Antioxidants are necessary for our bodies, neutralizing the presence of an excess of free radicals as a result of air pollution, smoking, bad eating habits, soft drinks and stress. The reduction of free radicals helps combat ageing and protect cells and healthy tissues from damage.
Some of the ingredients included in PhytoMatrix ® are:
Spirulina (Spirulina maxima) is a unicellular, spiral-shaped algae. It is a 'superfood' whose protein is more digestible than beef's, and contains an array of nutrients such as vitamins, macrominerals, minerals, essential fatty acids, proteins, nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), chlorophyll, and a wide range of phytochemicals like phycocyanin, a bluish pigment.
The UN, in collaboration with the Intergovernmental Institution for the Use of Micro-Algae, recommends the use of microalgae like spirulina to prevent acute malnutrition in humanitarian emergency situations, to treat chronic malnutrition, and for a sustainable development.
Spirulina has also been chosen by NASA to enrich the diet of astronauts in space missions. It is clear that algae are the food of the future, helping to improve vigour and vitality, and they help fight fatigue.
Helps with weight control, as it prevents the breakdown of starch that passes through the intestine, while promoting its activity. It helps maintain blood glucose levels and reduces appetite. Spirulina is one of nature's perfect foods. These tiny algae that were designed by nature 3.6 billion years ago and were the generators of oxygen in our atmosphere, have many positive effects on our health. Spirulina is 65% highly-digestible complete vegetable-protein, and it provides all eight essential amino acids in the correct proportions, while at the same time being five times easier to digest than meat or soy protein. It is also an excellent source of minerals (potassium, calcium, zinc, magnesium, manganese, selenium, iron and phosphorus) as well as vitamins (B complex and vitamin E).
OptiBerry® contains OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) from a mixture of six extracts from different berries.
Extract of Vitis vinifera (grape seeds), which, like OPCs, are rich in biologically-active polyphenols.
Green tea extract, derived from young and unfermented tea leaves from the camellia sinensis plant, contains standardized levels of polyphenols, such as epigallocatechin gallate, the most powerful polyphenol.
Boswellia extract which comes from boswellia serrata resin used in Ayurvedic medicine in India over 3,000 years ago. It helps protect the digestive tract, lung function, proper functioning of pain-free joints, mental health, and maintenance of normal cholesterol levels.
L-OptiZinc®, zinc is necessary for normal carbohydrate metabolism, cognitive function, normal DNA synthesis, fertility and reproduction, macronutrient, fatty acid and vitamin A metabolism, protein synthesis, maintenance of bones, hair, nails and skin, maintenance of normal levels of testosterone, normal vision, immune system, protection of cells against oxidative damage and the process of cell division.
Resveratrol is one of the components of wine, to which the so-called French paradox longevity effect is attributed. It contributes to normal cardiovascular health and helps with weight control. It is also a phytoestrogen, which may help improve the symptoms of menopause. Results of two clinical studies reveal that high doses of trans-resveratrol (a component found in the polygonum cuspidatum) have potent antidiabetic effects in patients with Type II diabetes as a food adjuvant treatment with hypoglycemic medicine, compared to those who only took hypoglycemics.
The chromium in this formula is a unique patented form of biologically active chromium-niacin that dramatically increases the effectiveness of chromium, which contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and to maintaining normal blood glucose levels.
Bacopa extract derived from bacopa monnieri, which stimulates memory, learning processes and cognitive functions such as concentration and mental clarity, helps reduce stress-related anxiety, as well as peripheral circulation. Used in Ayurvedic medicine over 3,000 years. Bacosides A and B facilitate the acquisition, consolidation, retention and recall of learned tasks.Regular consumption of bacosides increases the activity of a protein called kinase, as well as that of protein synthesis of brain cells related to learning and memory. They also help repair damaged neurons, increasing kinase, the protein involved in the synthesis of new neurons to replace old ones. As a result, the exhausted synaptic activity is restored, stimulating brain function and memory.
Ashwagandha is a standardized natural extract derived from the Withania somnifera plant, used in Ayurvedic medicine over 3,000 years. It is a powerful tonic and adaptogen, which helps reduce stress, supports mental function, memory and emotional stability, can help women's reproductive health and male sexual function, as well as help maintain healthy skin, while contributing to good energy levels and general well-being. The active components are called withanolides, known to inhibit inflammation, such as in cases of arthritis.
Chrysin, a phytoestrogen capable of inhibiting aromatase (the enzyme that converts testosterone to estradiol).
Vitamin C: a powerful antioxidant that works within cells and improves immune function, contributes to the normal function of collagen, blood vessels, maintenance of bones, cartilage, gums, energy metabolism, normal nervous system, psychological function, as well as to the protection of cells against oxidative damage, while reducing tiredness and fatigue. It also helps regenerate the reduced form of vitamin E and improves iron absorption.
Lipoic acid, a fat- and water-soluble antioxidant that regenerates vitamins E and C so that they remain active longer, it protects mitochondria, the power plants of cells, improving cell membranes.
Vitamin D: It was believed that its deficiency only caused rickets, but it is now known that blood levels of this vitamin that are even within the lower half range of normal limits may represent a health risk. In addition to setting calcium, vitamin D has other properties such as maintenance of bones and teeth, muscle function, normal functioning of the immune system, and support of the cell division process.
It also has direct functions on DNA, since it is attached to it by VDR (a specific receptor) and over 200 genes are influenced by it through these direct interactions with the human genome. This was confirmed when researchers saw that in the regions of the genome that's associated with autoimmune diseases, in some cases there was a greater number of VDR receptors.
Vitamin K: Also known as the clotting vitamin, where its name originates from, as the root of the word is the Danish Koagulation (coagulation). It is anti-hemorrhage, and is involved in bone metabolism. Vitamin K2 (also called menaquinone) is produced by intestinal bacteria. Vitamin K3 (also called menadione) is a synthetic variant.
• A multivitamin complex that helps slow the aging process.
• To improve the immune system and inflammatory processes.
• As it contains vitamin K, it could decrease the effectiveness of Warfarin treatment.
It is recommended 2 tablets of PhytoMatrix ® (together with 3 capsules of OmegaMatrix ® or MarinePro ®) are taken twice a day on an empty stomach.
