It has a long history of use as a folk remedy in Honduras, where it is used for a wide variety of ailments. It has been available since the 1970s and it is a powerful antioxidant due to its high content of phenolic compounds.

ORGANIC CARROT AND VITAMIN A (As Beta-Carotene)
Beta-carotene, found in carrots, is a skin-friendly nutrient that is converted to vitamin A inside the body. It helps in repairing the skin tissues and provides protection against the sun’s harsh rays. The antioxidants and carotenoids protect and condition the skin to increase its immunity against the sun and heal sunburns. Studies have repeatedly shown that antioxidants like Vitamin A are vital to good health and longevity.
- Protects Eye Health
- Provides Immune Support
- Fights Inflammation
- Supports Skin Health and Cell Growth
GRAPE SEED and RESVERATROL
Grapes have been traditional treatments in Europe for thousands of years. Resveratrol and grape seed extract are derived from grapes, but unlike grape seed, resveratrol is extracted from grape skins like those used to make red wine. Although both substances have similar actions in the body, they each have some individual recommended medicinal uses. A study of healthy volunteers found that taking grape seed extract substantially increased blood levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that destroy free radicals, which are harmful compounds in the body that damage DNA (genetic material) and even cause cell death. Scientists believe free radicals contribute to aging, as well as the development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer.
- Fight age-accelerating free radicals.
- Support cardiovascular wellness.
- Encourage free-flowing circulation.
- Antioxidant qualities protect from UV damage.
LUTEIN and ZEAXANTHIN
Zeaxanthin and lutein are responsible for the yellow color of the macula lutea, which protects against light-dependent damage. Epidemiological studies provide evidence that an increased consumption of lutein is associated with a lowered risk for age-related macular degeneration, a disease with increasing incidence in the elderly. Zeaxanthin is an efficient antioxidant, and thus contribute to the prevention of light-exposed tissue, skin and eyes, from light-induced damage.
- Helps protect the retina.
- Protects Against Eye Disorders
- Helps Protect Skin Health
- Decreases photo-aging
Vitamin D is one of the more complex vitamins that are needed by the human body in order to grow and develop. Vitamin D is actually available in two forms. Vitamin D3 is formed when the body synthesizes sunlight on its surface. It mainly occurs through the exposure of the skin to UVA and UVB rays.
- Improves Bone Health
- Reduces Diabetes Risk
- Increases Muscle Strength
