NEUTRIENTTM TOTAL CTM – SUPER CHARGE YOUR SMOOTHIE

Many of us are looking for easy ways to increase our dietary levels of vitamin C, a key nutrient for supporting normal immune function, protecting cells from oxidative stress and contributing to collagen formation which is vitally important for youthful skin radiance. Citrus fruits, red and purple berries and green leafy vegetables and parsley are all good sources of vitamin C and they all work well in smoothies. However, you can go one step further and add 1-2 scoops (1-2 grams of vitamin C) of Neutrient Total C to your smoothie mix. Neutrient Total C contains a mix of buffered vitamin C in the form of mixed mineral ascorbates and ascorbic acid alongside the additional phytonutrients D-ribose, dihydroquercetin and bio- perine (black pepper extract) which help support the absorption and action of vitamin C.

The pure powder formula with no colours, sugars, sweeteners or unnecessary additives is a great way to top up your vitamin C levels, especially for those who prefer not to take their vitamin C as pills or sweetened drinks.

VITAMIN C THE “PRIMAL PANACEA”

Dr. Thomas Levy advocates Vitamin C as the “Primal Panacea” – an accurate term to describe the astounding benefits of vitamin C if one can get enough of it into one’s bloodstream soon enough. Due to a genetic error of metabolism, the vast majority of us no longer produce this panacea, making us increasingly susceptible to cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, dementia, diabetes, and many other very costly, and often fatal maladies. Dr. Levy cites over a thousand published medical reports to support his claim as he relates the history and science of the “primal panacea” in an easy-to-read and entertaining way. He also relates simple and powerful ways to boost blood levels to those once enjoyed by our ancient ancestors. Primal Panacea is full of proof, resources, and practical how-to to improve your odds for a long and healthy life.

GOOD LIVING PRACTICES

At a time when the world is struggling with the virus, this book written by Dr Ram Rao is indeed timely. With years of research and clinical experience in Neuroscience, Yoga and Ayurveda, it addresses ways to improve health and promote joy, happiness and longevity and to help people take optimal health and wellness in their own hands. The book will also serve as a resource by providing suitable health and wellness tips together with mechanistic explanation.

“Dr. Ram Rao is one of very few scientists who can legitimately advise us on how best to live well, full of vitality and joy. In Good Living Practices, he eloquently and succinctly outlines how many of the ancient Eastern wellness practices are now backed by cutting edge science, which can and should help us design and prioritize our lifestyle and practices. This is a must-read for anyone looking for more than what our Western medical approach and daily experience have to offer.” Dr. Dave Jenkins, MBChB, Founder and Director-SurfAid
