Our scientific team has formulated Sanox Viva with nutrients that directly enter the body’s organs and tissues in order to provide immediate results.
1. EGCG, the bio-active constituent in Green Tea, penetrates fat in the body’s tissues, and gets into the pancreas, helping to normalize insulin levels. It also helps you manage your weight because it acts as a starch blocker by inhibiting the activity of amylase, a starch-digesting enzyme in your saliva and intestines. Since starch is broken down more slowly, the elevation of glucose levels is minimized, reducing your cravings after a meal.
The potent antioxidants in Green Tea are called catechins, which help reduce the oxidation of LDL—“lousy cholesterol” that contributes to clogged arteries.
2. Resveratrol and Green Tea extract penetrates the cells’ nucleus and increases telomere activity. This is a very important anti-aging benefit. Here’s why: When we are young, the telomeres, which are the protective caps at the end of every DNA strand, are long. But as we age, the telomeres shorten and can’t protect the DNA as well as they did when we were vibrant and young. We end up getting sick and less energetic. Short telomeres can seriously affect our cardiovascular health and lead to heart attack, stroke and infectious diseases.
The good news is that resveratrol has a direct impact on our body’s production of telomerase, the enzyme that helps lengthen telomeres.
3. Pomegranate extract has been used for centuries as part of the Mediterranean diet as a folk remedy for diabetes and metabolic syndrome. In the last decade, scientific studies have shown that its ellagitannins and other polyphenols can indeed help support normal blood glucose, reduce total cholesterol, provide anti-cancer effects, and even help improve osteoporosis.
