Until recently many believed that each antioxidant worked separately in the body, independently of the others. We now know that isn’t true. Flavay® recycles and significantly extends the lifetime of vitamin C, potentiates vitamin E, and thereby creates a more powerful, synergistic antioxidant effect in the body. Current research also demonstrates that other antioxidants work as a team, in sequence and in a complementary fashion.
Flavay Plus® utilizes this dynamic with a synergistic blend of Flavay® and antioxidant vitamins and minerals and phytonutrients; formulated to especially boost the brain and immune functions—thereby benefiting the whole body.
Flavay® : a very specific, standardized and isolated, singular polyphenol complex defined and perfected by Dr. Jack Masquelier in France; validated by the French Ministry of Health and documented by a library of research consisting of many patents and hundreds of scientific papers, articles, doctorate theses, lectures and presentations.
Flavay® has several key actions when consumed:
Phosphatidyl Serine: A naturally occurring fatty acid in the brain, the phosphatidyl serine (Leci-PS™) in Flavay Plus® is a natural complex of phospholipid nutrients and fatty acids derived from soy lecithin. Thousands of published research papers, including many published in peer-reviewed mainstream scientific journals, at least 64 of which were clinical studies on humans, show that phosphatidyl serine supplementation works consistently for the brain and benefits virtually every brain function. By boosting membrane functions in cells throughout the brain, phosphatidyl serine seems to boost many nerve transmitters while simultaneously boosting their coordinated effects across the entire brain.
Ginkgo Biloba: The standardized extract of the ginkgo leaves has been shown to be beneficial in a broad range of conditions, including those involved with circulation, blood conditions, metabolism, immune function, varicose conditions, and post-thrombotic syndrome. It has been shown to help with short-term memory improvement (especially in older populations), and cognitive disorders secondary to depression, among other conditions. Flavay Plus® uses the clinically proven optimum ratios of standardized ginkgo leaf extract that were used in the breakthrough study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
GABA: One of the most abundant neurotransmitters in the brain, some people with anxiety, panic disorders, and depression may not manufacture sufficient levels of GABA.
VITAMIN A (as Beta-carotene): Flavay Plus® is formulated with the preferred form of vitamin A, beta-carotene (Betatene™) which is converted into vitamin A only as the body needs it. What isn’t converted to vitamin A remains as a powerful antioxidant, shown to be a cancer preventative, to help strengthen the immune system, to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke, and protect against macular degeneration and the formation of cataracts. Flavay Plus® provides the highest quality, full-spectrum, patented Betatene™, a complete array of plant-derived, antioxidant carotenoids: beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, lutein, and lycopene.
Vitamin B-1 (Thiamin): Plays an essential role in the metabolism of carbohydrates in the body, improves mental attitude, and keeps the nervous system, muscles and heart functioning normally. Inadequate intake may result in mental illness and some psychiatrists use vitamin B-1 for various emotional and psychiatric illnesses, oftentimes with medication.
VITAMIN B-2 (Riboflavin): Assists in energy metabolism, fatty and amino acid synthesis. Vitamin B-2 is needed for tissue repair and is sometimes called the “growth vitamin.” Inadequate intake may cause depression, moodiness, nervousness, and irritability.
Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine): Involved in the metabolism of amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) and of essential fatty acids, the nervous system is dependent on vitamin B-6 for the production of GABA and neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin and dopamine. It may be difficult for men and women to obtain even the RDAs from food; and stress, medications, smoking, and pollutants raise the B-6 requirement. Inadequate intake is associated with depression, confusion, dizziness, insomnia, irritability, and nervousness.
Vitamin B-12 (Cyanocobalamin): Helps the body to utilize fats, carbohydrates and protein; and to maintain a healthy nervous system. Vitamin B-12 increases energy, relieves irritability, and improves concentration, memory and balance. Vitamin B-12 also helps the body to form and regenerate red blood cells and to break down homocysteine, a risk factor in heart disease. In children, B-12 supports growth.
Vitamin C: Water-soluble, a potent free radical scavenger and it recycles vitamin E in the body. Vitamin C plays a primary role in the formation of collagen and it is essential for a healthy cardiovascular system and a strong immune system. Controlled studies prove the contribution of vitamin C in the manufacture of white blood cells and interferon.Flavay Plus® uses Ester-C™, a patented, revolutionary form of vitamin C that gets into the blood stream faster than ordinary vitamin C, in larger amounts with less waste, stays in the body longer, and is used more efficiently by cells and connective tissues. Ester-C™ is also buffered and stomach-friendly.
It’s also important to note that Flavay® dramatically extends the activity of vitamin C in the body.
Vitamin E: The body’s principal fat-soluble antioxidant. Much of the body’s free radical damage occurs in fats and in fatty membranes of cells—exactly where vitamin E protects the body. Vitamin E is used by surgeons before and after operations to ensure against thrombosis and increase immunity to infection, by pediatricians to prevent blindness in premature babies, and by other specialists to increase high-density lipoproteins. Vitamin E decreases elevated hormone levels and prevents and treats anemias.
Flavay Plus® uses only natural, cold-water dispersible (dry) vitamin E because it is efficiently absorbed even when taken on an empty stomach or with a low-fat meal. The other forms of natural vitmain E, the non-cold water dispersible (oil) forms, may be poorly absorbed unless taken with several grams of fats or oils.
The National Academy of Science officially recognized natural vitamin E (d-alpha) as twice as potent and retained twice as well as synthetic (dl-alpha). This means twice as much natural vitamin E reaches the blood and organs compared to synthetic versions.
Selenium: Necessary for the body’s production of its own, naturally occurring antioxidants including: glutathione (a key intracellular antioxidant enzyme system that is responsible for protecting all of the body’s cells from free radical damage and detoxifying noxious agents from the body) and thioredoxin reductase, which recycles vitamin C. Selenium also has a synergistic effect with vitamin E, which means that the two combined are more powerful than either alone. Many Americans do not consume even the small RDA of selenium in their diet. Not consuming enough selenium is dangerous to your health. Low blood levels of selenium have been strongly associated with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and many different types of cancer.
Zinc: An essential mineral, zinc has many important effects on the brain and immune system, including neurotransmitter production and enzyme functioning. Zinc is a necessary part of the body’s production of DHA and a constituent of many vital enzymes, including superoxide dismutase (SOD), which is a critical cellular antioxidant enzyme that is responsible for mopping up peroxynitrate, the highly toxic free radical produced in abundance in the normal course of immune system battles (as in viral or bacterial infections) and plays a powerful role in immune system inflammation.
Together with the B vitamins, zinc assists in the utilization of insulin and glucose. There is a growing body of evidence to indicate that zinc is needed for the proper maintenance of vitamin E levels in the blood and aids in the absorption of vitamin A. Other important functions of zinc include the promotion of glandular and reproductive health; and there is strong evidence that zinc is required for the synthesis of the nucleic acids RNA and DNA, which are essential for cell repair and cell growth. Studies have found large percentages of apparently healthy children to be deficient in zinc. There is evidence that zinc levels fall after physical and mental stress. Flavay Plus® uses zinc orotate, a high-quality, highly bioavailable form of zinc.
