Natures Own Cytoplan Phyto-Med Phytoshield - Antioxidant - 60 Vegicaps
from Natures Own
Phytoshield is a high-potency, plant-based antioxidant formula, giving optimum support levels of flavonoids and carotenoids.
Each capsule contains the equivalent of 650mg flavonoids and 15.2mg carotenoids. To put this into perspective, the average British diet gives around 140mg flavonoids and 5mg carotenoids.
Doctors and nutritionists are now recommending that for health one needs at least 600mg of flavonoids and 23mg carotenoids, so as you can see, most of us are short on our intake of these valuable protectors.
If you are one of the few people eating over 5 portions of brightly-coloured fruit and vegetables a day, you are likely to be achieving the level of carotenoids and flavonoids that you need for health. If not, you would be best advised to change your diet to include these, or consider topping up with supplemental phytonutrients.
The great benefit of Phytoshield is that it covers the full colour spectrum of flavonoids and carotenoids in a one-a-day capsule yielding an astonishing 5,000 ORAC units.
ORAC is a measure of antioxidant capacity, and to give you an idea of how powerful this product is, 5 portions of fruit and vegetables as contained in an average British diet yields only 1,500 ORAC units.
