SANDERSON 1-a-day VISION FX

Vision for Life The eye is our most important sensory organ and good vision is a prerequisite for an active life. Up to 80% of all impressions are perceived by sight. However, we often don’t think about our senses until an organ stops working. Anyone with poor vision is restricted in many ways – there is no doubt that better vision means better life; so you have plenty of reasons to take care of your eyes, particularly as you age – in New Zealand age-related macular degeneration affects 1 in 7 people over 50 years and it is the most common cause of blindness. 7 tips to help maintain healthy eyesight 1. Eat for Healthy Eyes Eat foods rich in protective nutrients like omega 3, vitamin C and other antioxidants. A balanced diet helps reduce the risk of obesity and diseases like type II diabetes – diabetes is a major cause of adult blindness. 2. Exercise Physical activity stimulates blood circulation, improves oxygen levels to the eyes and helps remove toxins. 3. Quit Smoking Smoking increases the risk of cataracts, optic nerve damage and macular degeneration. Smokers have 3 times the risk of developing macular degeneration. 4. Wear Sunglasses Protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Too much UV exposure increases your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Choose sunglasses that block 99-100% of UVA and UVB rays. 5. Use Safety Eyewear If you work with hazardous or airborne materials wear safety glasses or googles every time. 6. Look Away from the Computer Screen Staring too long at a computer screen can lead to eyestrain, blurred vision, trouble focusing at a distance, dry eyes, headaches, neck, back & shoulder pain. If your eyes are dry, blink more. Rest your eyes every 20 minutes by looking 20 metres away for 20 secs. Take a 15 minute screen-break every 2 hours. 7. Have a regular eye check To protect your sight and ensure early detection of problems get a regular periodic professional eye examination.

Superior Organic Vitamin E 1000iu

Superior Organic Vitamin E 1000iu

Available strengths 400iu and 1000iu. Vitamin E is a term that refers to a group of compounds called tocopherols, which occur in four major forms: alpha, beta, delta and gammatocopherols. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects cell membranes and other fat-soluble parts of the body from free radical damage. Its role in protecting cholesterol (a fatty substance in the blood) from damage, has promoted its use in heart health. Vitamin E’s protective action has other beneficial effects on the body; there is evidence to suggest that vitamin E promotes immune function, particularly in the elderly and helps protect against environmental and chemical pollutants. KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS: SANDERSON™Vitamin E may be used to support heart health, immunity and eye health and may assist with the symptoms of age-related memory decline. It may also useful in the relief of some PMT symptoms. Vitamin E may be applied both internally and topically (applied directly to the skin) to aid wound healing and skin conditions such as eczema.

Superior Red Krill 1500mg Softgels

Superior Red Krill 1500mg Softgels

SANDERSON™ Superior Red Krill Oil 1500mg is rich in phospholipid bound omega-3s that offer greater bio efficiency and better utilization in the body than other forms. Omega-3 phospholipids from krill do not give any aftertaste, because they are water-soluble and so rapidly digested in the stomach. Krill oil has been shown in research to be an effective means of managing healthy cholesterol levels. It has also been demonstrated as a superior support for joint comfort. The antioxidant Astaxanthin which gives krill oil its characteristic red colour is known to cross the blood – brain barrier making krill a potent aid in maintaining healthy brain function. SANDERSON™ Superior Red Krill Oil undergoes minimal processing at low temperatures to reduce any risk of oxidation. The clear red colour is a sign of fresh krill oil. Our oil undergoes unique rapid ship-board processing to maintain freshness. The high astaxanthin content also helps protect our krill oil from oxidation. What is Krill Oil? Krill oil is made from krill, a small, shrimp-like crustacean that inhabits the cold ocean areas of the world. Despite their small size, krill make up the largest animal biomass on the planet. There are approximately 500 million tons of krill roaming in northern seas alone, and larger populations in the southern ocean. Krill oil, like fish oil, contains omega-3 fats such as eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). However, in fish oil, these omega-3 fats are found in the triglyceride form. In krill oil, they are found in a double chain phospholipid structure, the same form as the fats in human cell walls. Krill oil also contains vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin D and astaxanthin, which is a potent anti-oxidant. The anti-oxidant potency of krill oil is, in terms of ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values, 48 times more potent than fish oil. The astaxanthin found in krill oil supports resistance against ultraviolet light and UV-induced skin damage. The Key Benefits of Krill Oil The benefits of Omega 3 attributed to fish oil also apply to krill oil, including cardio-vascular health care, joint comfort and mobility, healthy skin, and support during PMS. In particular, krill oil has been shown in research to be more effective than ordinary fish in supporting healthy levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol. The superior bioavailability characteristics of krill oil including its ability to be absorbed by the brain allows krill oil to support brain development, normal cognition, memory and other mental faculties more effectively than fish oil. Krill Oil Contains Phospholipid Omega-3 A biochemical property of krill oil is that at the molecular level a phosphate molecule is attached. The presence of phosphate molecules classes krill oil omega-3’s as phospholipids. Phospholipids significantly increase the absorption or bioavailability of krill oil omega-3’s. This means the beneficial omega-3 from krill oil is more readily available to important areas of the body such as brain tissue. One advantage of the high bioavailability of krill oil when compared to fish oil, is that you need less krill oil to achieve the same benefits of omega-3. For example, dosage of omega-3 rich fish oil may be up to 5 grams, compared to only 1 gram of high quality krill oil. Phosphatidyl choline is the main phospholid found in pure krill oil. Choline may help the development of a growing brain. Choline may also support cognition; memory and the ability to learn. Krill Oil Contains Astazanthin Unlike fish oil, krill oil contains an important and powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. Quality krill oil supplements will contain high levels of axtaxanthin. Astaxanthin as an antioxidant, helps to make krill oil less perishable,...
