Understanding bioactive ingredients and their benefits

Marvels of nature that

contribute to digestive health

Whether due to stress, aging or antibiotics, it can be hard to maintain digestive health and the balance between good and bad bacteria. That’s where probiotics come in handy. By colonizing microbiota (intestinal flora), probiotics can be used to counter the proliferation of harmful microorganisms and promote the growth of good bacteria.

Probiotics are part of a balanced diet and keep you healthy while contributing to your overall well-being. Because probiotics (rhamnosus) are resistant to stomach acid and the intestinal environment, they stay active throughout the digestive tract and provide multiple benefits to the intestines. For its part, inulin (a prebiotic fibre extracted from the chicory root) is a natural ingredient that acts as a complement to probiotics by feeding good bacteria located in the intestines, contributing to a sensation of well-being.

A simple solution to

strengthen bones and teeth

Calcium and Vitamin D are essential for healthy bones and teeth. However, most Canadians do not get their recommended daily intake of calcium

While Vitamin D is essential for the body to absorb calcium, it also helps prevent osteoporosis, a disease that deteriorates bone tissue.

OMEGA-3

Incredible health benefits

Omega-3, also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids, have multiple health benefits on the cardiovascular and nervous systems. They are essential for the body and your overall health, making them an important part of your diet.


There are three main types of omega-3 fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA contributes to keeping hair, eyes and nerves healthy, especially in children under two years of age. A healthy diet that is low in saturated fat and trans fat can reduce the risk of developing heart disease. Juices and other foods with omega-3 tend to be low in saturated fat and trans fat.

A diet rich in omega-3 would also promote the production of neurotransmitters to increase your energy levels and boost your mood, thereby affecting your emotional stability and your overall well-being.

Plant sterols to

lower your cholesterol

Plant sterols, also called phytosterols, are naturally found in vegetables, fruits, vegetable oils, nuts and grains and help lower bad cholesterol (LDL). In Canada, approximately half of adults have a high level of cholesterol and many have a family history of high cholesterol. This might lead to heart problems since too much cholesterol in the blood can clog arteries and increase the risk of developing heart disease. Plant sterols, can play a part in preventing the absorption of cholesterol and reduce levels of cholesterol.

Plant sterols are structurally similar to cholesterol. In the small intestine, sterols and cholesterol compete with each other, reducing the absorption of bad cholesterol in the blood. The cholesterol that is not absorbed is eliminated by the body, resulting in lower levels of bad cholesterol. Through a healthy diet and active lifestyle, consuming 2 to 3 servings of foods enriched with plant sterols (2g/day) can help you reduce your levels of bad cholesterol.

Essential in the fight

against free radicals

Phytonutrients are natural compounds found in plants such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes. They work with other essential nutrients to promote good health. Polyphenols (natural antioxidants produced by plants) are the largest group of phytonutrients and can be found in berries, apples, citrus, tea and nuts. They have antioxidant properties and are naturally found in brightly coloured fruit.

The main natural antioxidants are: bioflavonoids, carotenoids, Vitamin C & E and selenium.

The body produces free radicals in response to stress, the environment and aging. It’s important to remember that a healthy diet that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of certain cancers. That’s where antioxidants come in and help protect the body from the damage caused by free radicals.

Refuel your body while

reducing your carb intake

In order to carry out your daily activities, you need a diet that will provide you with enough energy. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to get the energy you need while reducing your carbohydrate intake and also limiting your intake of sugar and lowering your insulin levels.

By adhering to a low-carb diet and being physically active every day, you’ll lower your body’s production of insulin, lower your glycemic index and increase your overall well-being.
