Aku4 Complex is an excellent source of vitamin C. It also contains the essential mineral zinc and the trace element selenium. All three elements are nutritionally essential for humans. Vitamin C limits the damaging effects of free radicals through its antioxidant activity, which may help to prevent or delay the development of certain cancers and cardiovascular disease among others. It plays a vital role in wound healing and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body. It also plays an important role in immune function and improves the absorption of non-heme iron.
Zinc is required for the catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes and like vitamin C plays an important role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis and cell division. Selenium plays critical roles in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, and protection from oxidative damage and infection. The other ingredient in Aku4 Complex is the juice of two superfruits: cranberry and pomegranate. Both are highly potent antioxidants with many health benefits such as guarding against urinary tract infections and cardiovascular disease.
Cranberry extract has been shown to eliminate urinary tract infection (UTIs) by 65%, thus reducing the use of antibiotics in children and women over 50. Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins that prevent adherence of uropathogenic bacteria in the urinary tract. Phenolic compounds found exclusively in pomegranate, also known as punicalagins, have been shown beneficial in improving blood flow and heart function.
Pomegranate is a good source of fiber, it contains vitamins A, C and E, iron and other antioxidants (notably tannins). Pomegranate contains two very healthy and unique substances called punicalagins and punicic acid. Punicalagins are very potent anti-oxidants found in the juice and peel of a pomegranate. Pomegranate juice has three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea.
