For cell energy and against oxidative stress
Antioxidants such as vitamins, secondary plant substances (polyphenols) or protein precursors such as glutathione are natural “rust guards” and protect all organisms in nature from attacks by free radicals – aggressive, reactive and harmful molecules that arise through stress, poor diet, environmental toxins als well as waste products from most metabolic processes (cell respiration/oxidation) in the human body.
Active hydrogen is a superior antioxidant
Colloidal cluster structures, such as occur in silicon compounds, are naturally amorphous and therefore adsorb substances very easily. Therefore, colloidal silica is liable to e.g. to bind hydrogen particles loosely during conventional hydrogenation and to “store” significant amounts of hydrogen, in particular as hydride ions (H-) or so-called “active hydrogen”.
Negatively charged hydrogen ions (H-) are the smallest, low molecular weight (i.e. able to penetrate cell walls) and yet most powerful antioxidants (approx. -710mV) known in the scientifc world. At the same time they are the ultimate scavengers for free radicals, because they own an excess electron to neutralize such radicals. Active hydrogen occur predominantly in fresh fruit and vergetables as well as in fresh spring water. It is extremely volatile and reactive, which is why it is often not available to us to sufficient degree.
Active H ® day – as a complex with potassium/zinc/B6 or magnesium/selenium – contributes to the normalization of
- Cell protection against oxidative stress (neutralization of free radicals)
- Cell energy production (ATP)
- Reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Immune system (defense power)
Active H® day additional:
- Cognitive function (mental energy)
- Acid-base balance (pH-milieu)
- Nutrient metabolism in the body
Active H® night additional:
- Psychic function and nervous system (mental balance)
- Electrolyte balance (pH-milieu)
VitalBASE® with apple pectin
Alkaline minerals and trace elements based on organic citrate
VitalBASE® with apple pectin is a synergistic recipe. It aims to support the organism during maintenance of the metabolic equilibrium, in particular the acid-base balance. It achieves this by making additional, bioavailable buffer capacities available for acid neutralisation.
The particular characteristics of the formula are:
- the well-balanced, high concentration of the mineral substance compound (ca. 60%)
- being based on gastric digestion neutral citrate salts (instead of carbonate or hydrogen carbonate)
- the dietary fibers apple pectin and inulin as carrier substances (instead of lactose, etc.)
VitalBASE® with apple pectin does not contain sweeteners and fillers such as sugar (e.g. lactose, sucrose, dextrose) or artificial sugar substitute (e.g. aspartame). This is in contrast with many other base mixtures. We also avoid the use of carbonate-based salts (also hydrogen carbonate), as they already develop their effect in the stomach and can impair the ability to digest, especially in older people.
Bowel cleanse by carrier substance from prebiotic fiber
Apple pectin, on the other hand, compliments the mineral substance compound of organic salts (ca. 60% of the compound), naturally on a citrate basis which is “digestion neutral”, in order to support the digestion promoting element of dietary fibers. Pectins from fruit and vegetables are among the so-called bioactive substances and develop a cleansing effect in the intestine by supporting the body during daily detoxification processes.
Inulin, a probiotic dietary fiber, serves the microorganisms conducive to health in the small intestine as nourishment. In the process it can promote a favourable intestinal milieu and strengthen the immune system. Experts assume that nowadays we consume just 10% of the amount of dietary fiber compared with the average of the rural population 50 years ago.
Gastric juice neutral citrate base salts
VitalBASE® with apple pectin is optimally bioavailable. Minerals essential for acid equilibrium such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium are present in a well-balanced amount and an organically favourable citrate form for the body. This guarantees good absorption, as no unfavourable interaction with acidic gastric digestion takes place.
VitalBASE® with apple pectin also contains important trace elements for the basic human supply such as zinc, copper, manganese, molybdenum, chromium and selenium and also silicon from silica, which reinforces skin, hair and nails as an anabolic agent and strengthens the connective tissue.
