ColActive 3 – bovine colostrum with lactoferrin and acidophilus

Colostrum with polypeptide, rich in proline :  As for the colostrum there is  a separate article,  here I am not going  to stop in detail on the many benefits of it. I  would only add that the used for ColActive 3 natural colostrum is not processed through ultra-filtration.  This means that it retained all valuable ingredients,  including  and the special polypeptide, rich in proline. Proline is an amino acid vital  for the production of collagen (a principal ingredient of connective tissue in the tough skin, healthy muscles, healthy  blood vessels and in general support of all healthy organs) and cartilage(on which depends the  health of our joints) . Proline-rich polypeptide  keeps  the skin taut  and reduces the formation of wrinkles, acts preventively against heart attacks, strokes, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, hernia and prolapse of various organs (stomach, kidney, uterus, etc.).

Lactoferrin: the hit of  modern naturopathy: Lactoferrin is an iron carrying glycoprotein that belongs to the group of  transferines. It secures for the  immune protection of the mucous membranes of the respiratory, digestive and genitourinary system, and presents in various body fluids and secretions (tears, bronchial secretions, saliva, bile, pancreatic juice, intestinal secretions, genital secretions).

The richest source of lactoferrin is colostrum, followed by milk. For industrial purposes is used lactoferrin from cattle colostrum, and lately through the methods of
genetic engineering is produced “human” lactoferrin. AquaSource`s Lactoferrin is derived
from cattle colostrum. In the body  lactoferrin occurrs in two forms: holo-lactoferrin (related to iron) and apo-lactoferrin (iron-free). The main functions of lactoferrin are:  

Antibacterial activity: lactoferrin acts bacteriostatic linking free iron and vitamin B12 and makes them inaccessible to the bacteria that stops them from multiplying, as
also bactericidal (destroys the cell walls of many microbes and fungi). Lactoferrin is
especially important for babies and people with weakened immune system. It is effective against E. coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Listeria, Candida and so on.. When mice infected with staphylococci receiving 2% of calories as lactoferrin, kidney infections decreased by 40-60% and bacteria in urine – from 5 to 12 times.

Urinary tract infections: they are very common in babies, little girls and women due to anatomical features of the female body (shorter and wider urethra). Many women complain of  “cystitis”, which often complicates until pyelonephritis. Colostrum and lactoferrin can greatly alleviate these infections and reduce the risk of chronic pyelonephritis and renal failure.

Antiviral action: Lactoferrin is a key molecule in the immune system, and can be used to combat various viral infections. It prevents many viruses attach on cell walls and penetrate in our cells – such as cytomegalovirus and viruses causing herpes, and AIDS. On the other hand it has been found that in patients with AIDS  lactoferrin in the oral cavity is reduced, making them more susceptible to various infections. 

Anti-inflammatory action: Lactoferrin binds some polysaccharides (exotoxins secreted by the microbes) and activates certain immune cells, which depend on the immune response. In
result, relieves inflammation and reduces the destruction of different tissues.

Immunomodulatory action: receptors for lactoferrin are found on different immunocompetent cells – T- lymphocytes (i.e.. called. killer – cells),  monocytes, macrophages. Lactoferrin contained in the oral cavity and gastrointestinal tract, stops  the growth of microbes or destroys them. Newborn piglets, in which food was added lactoferrin are much more resistant to infections – after injection of the toxin from Escherichia coli die only 17% of them, while in piglets receiving no lactoferrin, mortality is 74%.

Probiotic effect: Lactoferrin inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestine and
supports the development of bifidobacteria, contributing to the recovery of normal microflora. If the beneficial bacteria in the intestines are destroyed, their place is settled by harmful
bacteria producing various toxins, worsening of liver function, which is forced to dispose them.

Antioxidant action: linking free iron in the blood, apo-lactoferrin reduces the formation of free radicals and protects  lipids from oxidation, and the cells – from destruction. On the other hand, holo-lactoferrin attaches iron there and then, when and where it is necessary for the cells. This leads to delay in aging and lowers susceptibility to degenerative diseases and cancer.

Improved absorption of iron: due to its high affinity to iron lactoferrin connects and transmits it  to all cells in need of (it improves  bioavailability of iron in the body), which helps in rapid tackle with iron deficiency anemia, for example.

Gastrointestinal:  Lactoferrin reduces inflammation in the intestinal, for example at Crohn’s disease and other autoimmune, allergic, and infectious diseases, in which the intestines are affected – provided that it is  taken regularly and in sufficient quantities.

Anticancer activity: there are many attempts in-vitro and in-vivo, demonstrating the anti-cancer
effect of lactoferrin. Experimental mice which are given lactoferrin with carcinogen  asoximetan  develop much smaller tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. It has also potent inhibitory effect of lactoferrin on the particular cancer of the pancreas in humans – it is recommended  as part of the therapy for this disease:

 The bacteria Lactobacillus Acidophilus: Lactobacillus Acidophilus  (LA) is one of the healthiest and most beneficial for the human organism bacteria. It is contained within some fermented  products and food supplements. Taken in adequate amounts, it settles in the digestive and genitourinary systems and enhances health. So far the following effects have been established:

– Betters intestinal ecology and does not allow the development of pathogenic bacteria, by preventing their attachment to the intestinal walls, changes pH and oxygen content and produces bactericidal substances (hydrogen peroxide, lactic and acetic acid, etc.);
– Produces enzymes, including galactose, which is necessary for assimilation of milk sugar – this way it can help people who are lactose intolerant and especially  newborns with diarrhea caused by  lactose deficiency;
– Protects intestines, urinal tract and reproductive system from bacterial and fungal infections;
– Decreases the formation of cancerogenics and  harmful bacteria in the intestines ;
– Decreases diarrhea after being subjected to chemo or radiation therapy;
– Decreases level of the unhealthy cholesterol

Mothers, who breastfeed their babies can protect them from eczema or asthma, if they take enough probiotics (acidophilus-bifidus bacteria) during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Babies usually receive the bacteria from their mothers, while they are moving down the birth canal, but babies born via C-section instead of probiotics they  are infected by hospital bacteria which cause so called inhospital  infections– staphylococci, streptococcus, coli bacteria, clostridium and others.

Flexibility – Complex solution for joints and connective tissue!

Our joints are daily subjected to severe loads. Over time, this inevitably leads to wear – especially for overweight people, athletes or those exercising professions that load joints (e.g. sitting in front of a computer and prolonged work with mouse and keyboard, working with different tools, often borrowing forced posture, etc.). If you do not properly care for your joints, after a certain time they get worn or inflamed, reducing their flexibility and mobility and thereby affecting the quality of your life.

Many things that we call food are harmful to joints, as they block them with toxins, make worse blood supply or lead to inflammation. What is the solution? Most importantly is to supply daily our joints with supplements that restore cartilage, prevent and treat inflammation, improve blood supply and help us to be more flexible and mobile. But how to find the right formula? It is easy – just we can take a few capsules Flexibility – the only product specially set up to resolve the three major joint problems, namely:
1. Preventing or alleviating of inflammation
2. Restoring connective tissue and cartilage
3. Improving flexibility and mobility

Flexibility, the new AquaSource product, is very effective in wear, trauma, pain, stiffness, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and any other joint problems. This is due to the complex, synergistic action of the unique combination of tested over time natural healing herbs and clinically tested, patented ingredients with proven efficacy for joint problems that are unique and have no alternative on the market.

Inflammation: 

Benolea™ is a patented olive leaf extract which improves blood circulation in the joints. It is rich in oleuropein – a powerful immune booster, effective against a number of infections, including fungal. Besides for joints oleuropein is useful for heart as well, since it is a natural antioxidant that protects against oxidation the good cholesterol.

Opti-MSM® is a patented form of MSM, which is produces by a special technology and is effective for most joint inflammations and injuries and helps to lessen pain and swelling. MSM (methyl-sulphonyl-methane) is a sulphur-containing compound, vital for the strength of connective tissue, tendons and ligaments.

Aloe Vera is used for centuries to soothe the irritation and swelling and is well-known for its detoxifying action. Here, it is very concentrated (200 times) to further support the effect of Opti-MSM and Benolea.

Cartilage regeneration

Very important for our flexibility and mobility is welfare of joint cartilage that serves as a joint –buffer that softens the blows between bones facilitating the movement in joints. Joint cartilage consists of connective tissue rich in collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and water. These components are critical to its strength and elasticity. Therefore the product Flexibility has exactly these substances that give ideal nutrition and cartilage regeneration.

Chondractiv™ is a patented blend of collagen, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid. Unique in this new, highly efficient product is that it simultaneously nourishes, renews and restores cartilage, preventing its destruction and inflammation and improves joint mobility. Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies show that regular use of Chondractiv improves mobility and decrease by 73% the need for a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Hop extract (concentrated 4 times) comprises iso-alpha-acids and other ingredients with anti-inflammatory effects that prevent inflammation and support recovering of joint cartilage.

Flexibility and mobility

Everyone wants to be flexible and agile, but over time it becomes more difficult. Loads, injuries, inflammation and age affect us all. To take care of our joints, appropriate nutritional supplements are required indeed.

Regenasure® is the only existing form of vegetarian glucosamine (as hydrochloride). The glucosamine content of Regenasure is much higher (83%) than that of regular glucosamine sulphate (only 65%) obtained from shells of marine molluscs. Furthermore Regenasure is a purer product, because it does not contain remains of heavy metals and other toxins that accumulate in marine life. As well, Regenasure can be consumed by vegetarians and people allergic to seafood.

Glucosamine is normally produced in our body and it is required for the joint cartilage, ligaments, capsule and synovia (the tissue that produces the joint fluid). Glucosamine makes the joints healthier and more flexible, as it is responsible for the sufficient water content of cartilage. As we age, our ability to synthesize glucosamine decreases, our joints dry, cartilage thins and wears. This results in pain, inflammation, degeneration and reduces mobility. The only solution is to take food supplements with glucosamine as ordinary foods hardly contain it. And the best form of glucosamine today is Regenasure.

Celadrin® is a patented complex of specially selected esters of fatty acids, which prevent wear of the joints. Celadrin reduces inflammation and pain without side effects, strengthens the joint surfaces, improves the quality of synovial fluid (“grease”, comforts friction) and restores mobility and flexibility. Its effect is fast and secure.

Synergy

Flexibility combines into one whole five effective patented substances allowing thereby synergy in a fast and lasting effect. All the ingredients of Flexibility are clinically tested, with proven effectiveness. This makes Flexibility the best existing product on the market. This product provides solutions to all joint problems by simultaneous effect on all most important mechanisms of joint injury. Therefore Flexibility is a product that you surely need.

Use:

Flexibility is taken at mealtimes. Usually are enough 2 capsules daily. In more severe cases take 2×2 capsules daily. For maximum effect it can be taken 3×2 capsules a day untill passing of complaints. Children over 6 years and pregnant women can take 1 capsule per day.

Ingredients:

  • Regenasure® (vegetarian glucosamine hydrochloride) – 460 mg
  • Chondractiv ™ (collagen type II – chondroitin) – 190 mg of
  • Opti – MSM® (MSM) – 100 mg
  • Benolea ™ (olive leaf extract) – 80 mg

The pack has 60 capsules. Retail price 78.60 lv

True-fill capsules

An additional advantage of all AquaSource products is TRUE-FILL technology, which ensures that the capsule does not have anything but beneficial ingredients. AquaSource uses only True-fill capsules, unlike other companies. Often practice version for many manufacturers is to capsules or their contents to add substances that facilitates filling and cheapens production, but are not useful for health. In this respect AquaSource is one of the exceptions and makes no compromise that could affect the quality of the products.
