The scientific findings on the effects of bioactive food components have increased drastically in recent years. So far, it has been mainly the interest about the health significance of vitamins and minerals, but now also herbal substances are in the focus of interest, which are referred to as “phytochemicals”.
Their recognized impact on our health greatly enhances our ability to maintain or improve our health with natural nutrients. The results of this research, especially in the US have become an integral part of daily life practice among consumers.
Today, nutrient preparations are available that are precisely tailored to specific health objective through the sensible combination of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and plant extracts. This not only simplifies the intake considerably. The targeted combination of all active ingredients in preparation results in a synergy, which significantly increases the overall health benefits.
Thus, for example, in the KAL preparation “Eye-Formula Plus” the important carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are mixed with blueberry extract, but also with classic antioxidants such as L-glutathione and selenium, which should be considered in addition to the prime care in eye disorders. Moreover, combinations in order to maintain or restore mental alertness and performance take on an increasingly important role in this area.
