TERRANOVA Smooth Synergy contains ashwagandha root, avena sativa, american ginseng, rhodiola root, stabilised rice bran, ginger rhizome/root and cayenne fruit. Valuable nutritional boosters for maintaining healthy energy levels.
Like ginseng and rhodiola, ashwagandha has historically been used for its adaptogenic properties and may support energy metabolism and nervous system health. While certain adaptogens possess a more stimulating influence on the nervous system, the properties of ashwagandha are considered to have the opposite influence - while at the same time supporting energy metabolism.
Avena Sativa (Green Oat Seed)
The milk stage of oat seeds provides one of the most soothing and gentle, tonics for supporting healthy nerves. In addition to gramine and avenin, milky oat seeds are a rich source of nerve tonifying B-vitamins and minerals.
One of the most researched of adaptogens, American ginseng may help support healthy adrenal function and energy metabolism. While panax ginseng is normally considered a `yang` tonic In Chinese medicine, American ginseng is classified in this system as a `yin tonic`. Research suggests that the balance of ginsenosides in American ginseng may indeed favour a much less stimulating influence on the nervous system compared to Korean or Chinese forms of panax ginseng.
Rhodiola has significant adaptogenic properties and may support energy metaboolism, healthy neurotransmitter balance, mental performance and nervous system health.
Stabilised Rice Bran (SRB)
SRB has one of nature`s highest concentrations of nutrients involved in energy metabolism and nerve health such as B-vitamins, alpha lipoic acid and co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10).
In addition to its common use in helping maintain healthy circulation, ginger is also often used to help facilitate distribution of nutrients in the body.
The fruit of cayenne pepper is often used as a tonic to help maintain healthy circulation. It is also commonly used to help facilitate distribution of nutrients in the body.
What Is MAGNIFOOD?
Each Terranova nutritional product is enhanced with its own synergistic complex of botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods, called Magnifood. Magnifood ingredients are combined in a manner which enhances the body`s biochemical environment in order to maximise the potential benefits of the product`s vitamins, minerals and/or other nutrients. Many of the plants used in Magnifood are fresh freeze dried. Research shows that fresh freeze drying has the unique ability to retain a plant`s enzymes, and is shown to be superior to other drying methods in terms of activity, stability, solubility and preservation of a plant`s original fresh chemistry (as it was when the plant was harvested).
- Enhancing absorption, bioavailability, utilisation, activity, stability, function and effect of the product`s nutrients.
- Providing synergistic enzymes and co-factors crucial to the utilisation and functions of the product`s nutrients.
- Providing a vast array of phytonutrients that enhance the potential functions and/or applications of the product.
- Providing ingredients which enhance the overall content of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in the product.
- Protecting ingredients from oxidative damage, helping to support the stability and activity of the product`s nutrients.
