NutriCap


NutriCap provides a comprehensive array of essential vitamins and minerals designed to enhance a healthy lifestyle, promote vitality and improve mental functions.

Aside from incorporating a broad range of vitamins and minerals, what sets NutriCap apart from other dietary supplements are the special ingredients that act synergistically with its other incorporated components to strengthen the body’s defense system. Specifically, NutriCap includes special natural ingredients such as ginkgo biloba, lecithin and ginseng which are stated to enhance mental capabilities.

Moreover, NutriCap is reinforced with Lycopene, Lutein, Rutin and Zeaxanthin which are reported to possess antioxidant properties.

NutriCap provides the B-vitamins that are necessary in many metabolic processes and beneficial to the efficient functioning of the different body systems especially the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and nervous systems.

NutriCap also contains significant amounts of the antioxidant vitamin E. This helps protect body tissues from the damaging effects of the so-called free radicals.

Another antioxidant, Vitamin C, has been added to help maintain healthy gums, blood vessels, and connective tissues, thus preventing conditions like bruising and bleeding. Vitamin C is also regarded as an anti-stress agent.

Vitamin A is present in NutriCap in large amounts in order to maintain healthy eyes, skin and other body tissues. The minerals iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, flouride, potassium and manganese are incorporated to keep various metabolic functions at their optimum levels.

Zinc is an essential component of multi-enzyme systems that participate in various metabolic functions. Zinc also promotes the body’s immune system. It is also involved in wound healing and improvement of the sense of taste and sense of smell.

Ginkgo biloba has been used as a health enhancer for thousands of years.

Studies indicate that Ginkgo biloba increases alertness, ability to concentrate and mental responsiveness even in healthy people. A large volume of controlled clinical studies support its use to improve memory. In people with high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, Ginkgo biloba improves circulation to the brain, ensuring an adequate supply of nutrients. Because of this property, Ginkgo biloba has been successfully used in helping treat early stroke, senility, dementia, alzheimer’s disease, vertigo and tinnitus.

Ginkgo biloba also increases circulation to the eyes, especially to the retina. It has therefore been used for treating some eye disorders including macular degeneration and diabetic vascular disease.

Similarly, ear problems are diminished with the intake of Ginkgo biloba due to enhanced blood flow to the nerves of the inner ear. It has been found to be of benefit in the management of tinnitus or chronic ringing of the ears.

Lecithin (phosphatidylcholine), a major phospholipid, is an essential constituent of cell membranes of the different body cells. It is therefore important in the normalization of a wide range of physiologic processes from reproductive, circulatory to digestive functions.,

It is often called a “nerve-building” nutrient. Clinicians find lecithin useful in improving memory and in sustaining endurance in heavy physical and mental activities. Lecithin also helps in regulating metabolism and in preventing excessive fat accumulation in the liver. Health practitioners specifically asserted its importance in preventing liver damage caused by alcohol abuse.

Ginseng has been in use in ages in many parts of Asia for a broad variety of illnesses and certain body conditions, and is believed to improve vitality among the elderly and to extend the individual’s life span. Ginseng is widely used as a dietary supplement by consumers seeking to perk up general energy and vitality.

Other reported uses of ginseng include helping normalize blood sugar, stimulating endocrine glands and immune functions and alleviating symptoms of male impotence and of female discomfort caused by menopause.

While numerous research trials have mixed results, several studies have shown that Ginseng can help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol. The risk for some types of cancer also decreases with regular intake of ginseng.

At present, the main recognized use of Ginseng is as a tonic during times of stress, fatigue and convalescence.

Lycopene is the most prevalent carotenoid in the diet, and is the most abundant carotenoid in human serum. A number of epidemiological studies have demonstrated a strong relationship between lycopene intake, the plasma level of lycopene, and reduced risk for certain cancers. The reduced risk is seen mainly for cancers of the prostate, stomach and lungs. In those subjects with the highest intake of lycopene, risk for cancer has been reduced by 21% to 41%.

Recent studies suggest that lycopene may also retard the progression of coronary artery disease. Research shows that antioxidants such as lycopene reduce the oxidation of LDL, or the “bad cholesterol.” Oxidation is a step in the formation of atherosclerotic plaques which block the arteries supplying the heart. Most of the dietary lycopene comes from tomatoes and tomato-based products like tomato sauce, tomato paste and catsup. Nutritional surveys indicate that dietary intake of lycopene is highly variable, and may not meet levels required to show cancer-reducing benefits. Supplements are therefore necessary in most cases.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are two chemically similar carotenoids that also have proven health benefits.They specifically localize in the macula and lens of the eye and thus exert their effects in these areas. Both lutein and zeaxanthin have antioxidant effects, thus protecting the eyes from deleterious substances.

Both nutrients increase macular pigment density. It is known that the amount of macular pigments in the eye is inversely proportional to one’s risk for developing a condition called age-related macular degeneration or AMD. AMD is among the leading causes of vision impairment and blindness.

Studies have shown that those having the highest lutein and zeaxanthin intakes from their diet had a significantly lower risk of developing AMD compared to those with the least intakes. Aside from their antioxidant effects, lutein and zeaxanthin also protect against photodamage of the retina by filtering out blue light, thereby protecting the blood vessels that supply the macula.

There is also some evidence that cataract formation may be prevented by lutein and zeaxanthin. Recent studies show that the need for cataract extraction has been reduced significantly by increasing intakes of lutein and zeaxanthin.

Rutin is a natural flavonoid, extracted from fruits of the Fava D’ Anta tree. Flavonoids have a wide range of biological properties. One of the most important of these properties is that of being an antioxidant, or its ability to remove dangerous superoxide anions which can lead to thrombosis or atherosclerosis. Among the flavonoids, rutin has been shown to have the strongest scavenging activity for this purpose. Superoxide anions have been implicated in the development of coronary artery disease and cancer. Flavonoids are also considered as anti-inflammatory agents because they decrease formation of the substances responsible for inflammatory reactions. Empirical use of flavonoids contained in tea, vegetables and fruits seem to be important as antioxidants in the human diet. Flavonoids such as Rutin, are important because of their ability to increase the strength of capillaries and to regulate their permeability. Bruising and circulatory disorders such as varicose veins can be prevented or minimized. This is achieved partly through the more efficient absorption of Vitamin C. Rutin also acts synergistically with Vitamin C to help maintain a healthy immune system.
