Choline-Grouped with the Vitamin Bs,1998 classified as essential for the
body • Benefits neuro-transmission,Aids in tissue repair,Aids the immune
system, Essential for structural integrity for cell membranes, Essential
for signaling roles for cell membranes….this is a complex system of
communication that governs basic cellular activities and co-ordinates cell
action • Known as a smart nutrient improving cognition and may improve
IQ,May improve memory,Building block for neuro-transmitters.
Catechins-Contains MAOIs (monamine oxidase inhibitors) Mood elevator,
anti-depressant • Helps reduce body fat and can positively help reduce LDL.
NOTE: Double Blind study in Japan showed at 690 mg per day reduced body fat
and lowered LDL,Reduction in atherosclerotic plaques.According to Norman
Hollenberg, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, epicatechin
can reduce the risk of four of the major health problems:stroke, heart
failure, cancer and diabetes. Helps protect
the skin from UV radiation-induced damage and tumor
Green tea catechins have also been shown to possess antibiotic
properties due to their role in disrupting a specific stage of the
bacterial DNA replication process.
Catechins, when combined with habitual exercise, have been shown to delay
some forms of aging• A recent study has shown that daily catechin intake
(588mg of catechin for 12 weeks) can reduce weight, especially body fat.
With the daily intake of catechin, we can increase fat consumption in the
liver. This leads to the decrease in body fat. The moment you put catechin
into your mouth, it starts to work.
Because of its sterilizing effect, it prevents viral infections, like the
flu. In addition to that, it fights bacteria in the stomach to protect you
from food poisoning. Amazingly, catechin manages to fight deadly bacteria
and inhibits the growth of putrefactive bacteria without harming the
friendly bacteria. This actually leads to the stimulation of the immune
system in the body. Reduces stress damage to the cardio-vascular system.

Inulin • As a prebiotic, Inulin fiber stimulates the growth of friendly
and healthy intestinal bacteria which supports good colon health. Since it
also has a very low glycemic index.• In spite of being considered a soluble
fiber (breaks down in water), inulin resists breakdown in the stomach and
the small intestine, and is not digested, which means inulin has virtually
no caloric effects.• Inulin will not raise blood sugar levels and for this
reason is completely safe and encouraged for diabetics• Inulin has also
been shown to promote calcium absorption, which can prevent osteoporosis•
Inulin is a great prebiotic and it survives the harsh acids encountered in
the Stomach and small intestine, making it available for consumption
further down the line where probiotics await them.
Blueberries- actually have the high antioxidant capacity because of their
large anthocyanin concentration.• Proved to preserve vision• Blueberries
contain a huge list of phytochemicals – phenolic acid, anthocyanins,(the
pigment that makes them blue), ellagic acid (which may inhibit tumor
growth), alphacarontene, beta-carotene (precursors to vitamin A),
caryophyllene (possible antiinflammatory), chlorogenic acid, eugenol,
limonene, thymol (antiseptic and antifungal properties), catechins,
tocopherols and tocotrienols (vitamin E family), to name a few.
