omega3 fatty acid ALA molecule

Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG)

Epigallocatechin gallate, (EGCG) a catechin is considered to be a cancer chemopreventive in green tea. Catechins from green tea belong to the family of flavonoids that are powerful antioxidants and free iron scavengers.

vitamin D3 molecule

IP-6

IP6( inositol polyphosphate), or phytic acid, is the principal storage form of phosphorus in many plant tissues, especially bran and seeds. It can be found in cereals and grains.  In addition to reduction in cell proliferation, phytic acid increases differentiation of malignant cells often resulting in reversion to the normal phenotype

quercetin molecule

Glutathione

Glutathione is the most important antioxidant produced by the body. It prevents cellular damage caused by free radicals and peroxides.Glutathione is considered the master antioxidant and detoxifier found in every cell in your body.

omega3 fatty acid ALA molecule

Omega-3

Omega-3 fatty acids (omega-3s) have a carbon–carbon double bond located three carbons from the methyl end of the chain. ALA (shown above) is present in plant oils, such as flaxseed, soybean, and canola oils. DHA and EPA are present in fish, fish oils, and krill oils.

vitamin D3 molecule

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D is critical for bone and muscle health, but it has recently been shown to be protective against acute respiratory infections

quercetin molecule

Quercetin

Quercetin belongs to a group of plant pigments called flavonoids found inmany fruits, flowers, and vegetables. Flavonoids, such as quercetin, are antioxidants.


safranal  molecule

Safranal

Well known as a flavoring and odorant chemical, safranal is also known as an excellent antioxidant, and as a protective agent against indomethacin-induced gastric ulcers 

curcumin molecule

Curcumin

Curcumin is a yellow pigment that is a major component of turmeric and is commonly used as a spice and food-coloring agent. The past few decades have witnessed intense research devoted to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin.

capsaicin molecule

Capsaicin

Capsaicin stimulates the TRPV1 receptor. While capsaicin is not a cure for pain caused by these conditions, it does lower the amount of substance P, a chemical that helps transmit pain signals to the brain, when applied directly to the skin
