Intra & Nutria are better together Every
day essential nutritional supplements
When taken together, Intra and Nutria beneficially increase
the effectiveness and health benefits of each other –
from an increased reaction value in the body to better absorption.
In fact, Intra and Nutria taken together provide many hundreds
of concentrated phytonutrients that benefit human health and
work together and work together to produce a greater benefit
than any one of the individual components on their own.
Taking both at the same time increases the absorption rate
Taking Intra and Nutria at the same time is ideal and both are
best absorbed when taken with a meal. If you do not want to change
your routine – just make sure that both are taken with-in
a 24-hour period to capitalise on the synergistic interactions.
Free-radicals are your body’s worst
Free-radicals are formed naturally in the body. They are also formed,
in ever increasing numbers, outside the body i.e. pollution, radiation,
cigarette smoke, motor vehicle emissions, and many other processes.
Free-radicals are atoms or molecules with an odd ( unpaired ) number
of electrons that makes them unstable and highly reactive. Once
formed, these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction
called oxidation, which happens all the time in our bodies attacking
constantly our 63 trillion cells.
The effects of free-radical damage
Overall, free-radicals have been implicated in the development
of at least 50 diseases! A partial list includes arthritis and other
inflammatory diseases, kidney disease, cataracts, inflammatory bowel
disease, colitis, lung dysfunction, pancreatitis, drug reactions,
skin lesions, and aging, to mention a few.
Heart disease and cancer are two of the most widespread diseases
associated with free-radical damage. Several factors, such as high
blood cholesterol levels, hypertension, cigarette smoking, and diabetes
are chief culprits in the promotion of heart disease.
Fortunately, the body is able to curb free-radical damage by producing
antioxidant molecules and enzymes. However the body’s arsenal
of antioxidants appears to be insufficient in today’s polluted
and toxic environment and the effectiveness of the body’s
antioxidant defence mechanisms appears to be lessening, with free-radicals
being given greater rein to do damage. This results in the increase
of many of the diseases we associate with aging, including coronary
heart disease, cancer, skin damage, Alzheimer’s disease, strokes,
and rheumatoid arthritis due to free radical damage.
ORAC value and antioxidant capacity
ORAC stands for “oxygen radical absorbance
capacity”. It is a measure of the antioxidant capacity of
a food or product. The total antioxidant capacity refers to a full
spectrum of antioxidant activity against various reactive oxygen/nitrogen
radicals. The higher the ORAC value, the greater the antioxidant
Understanding the ORAC value
While the ORAC assays are performed in vitro (in the test tube),
this does not determine the bioavailability within the body. A high
ORAC indicates that the tested sample possesses a high potency of
antioxidant activity chemically.
Research has shown that a daily intake of 3,000 to 5,000 units
is enough to cause a measurable increase in antioxidant status in
the human body. For this reason, the ORAC assay can help us determine
what foods and nutritional supplements will have a positive effect
on our health everyday.
Studies show that the average person gets only about 1200 ORAC
units per day from three servings of fruit and vegetables…
less than half of the minimum amount needed for a protective benefit.
Understanding the ORAC assay and consciously consuming high ORAC
foods and supplements is the first step to maximizing the benefits
The ORAC value of Intra and Nutria
The recommended dose of 2oz of Intra and 2 capsules of Nutria increases
the average person’s ORAC daily intake by 64%
The truth about combining antioxidants
High doses of single antioxidants are never a good idea –
a good understanding of antioxidants and how they work is essential
in grasping this concept. Antioxidants work best in a combination.
This is because when one antioxidant neutralises a free radical,
in some cases the antioxidant itself then becomes a free radical
– becoming a “pro-oxidant”. Without another antioxidant
to neutralise this newly formed pro-oxidant, it can now go around
causing as much damage as the original free-radical.
That is why Nutria was formulated to be a balanced antioxidant
supplement that incorporates a wide range of antioxidants from many
sources. When combined with Intra, there are over 40 sources of
antioxidants that work together to ensure that free-radicals are
