Our bodies depend largely on vitamins and minerals, and the richest source of them come from fruit, vegetables and grains. Some nutritional supplements derive their vitamins and minerals from whole food sources while others are made in laboratories and are termed synthetic.
Synthetic forms of vitamins are produced similarly to pharmaceuticals, and are isolates of vitamins, lacking the complexity found in nature. Supplements made from whole food concentrates contain the entire vitamin complex and are the best source of vitamins and minerals. They contain all of the cofactors that are required for healthy and optimal absorption and digestion.
A common example is beta-carotene, a powerful anti-oxidant that has been shown to protect DNA from oxidative damage and is a key ingredient in Papillex. Beta-carotene is found naturally as a mixed carotenoid, complexed with other carotenoids including alpha-carotene, zeaxanthin, and astaxanthin.
In a supplement form, it is almost exclusively sold as an isolated synthetic form.
Carotenoids are natural fat soluble pigments found in fruits and vegetables. Diets rich in carotenoids have been correlated with lower disease risk.
With natural mixed carotenoids, the benefits are far greater, as you are reaping the benefits of the antioxidant power of multiple beneficial and synergistic compounds.
Papillex uses only mixed carotenoids from pristine water algae. This ensures that our customers have the full spectrum of carotenoids, from a whole food source. Our customers are guaranteed the most potent form of antioxidants that help with healthy cell turnover and regeneration.
