Prevention

Elderberry | Lemon & Raspberry Flavor

In our modern world, we are constantly exposed to stress and pollutants that can weaken our immune system. We formulated ConCordix Elderberry Prevention with 4 safe and effective ingredients that support a strong immune system. Elderberry contains phytocompounds that promote immunity. Beta-glucan is a bioactive polysaccharide found in yeast and mushrooms that supports immune function. Vitamin D3 helps with a healthy immune balance and vitamin A aids immunity by maintaining the protective layer of epithelial cells in the skin and GI tract. ConCordix Smart Chews are a fun, tasty, and easy way to take supplements.

Elderberry  Immune Function

Our ConCordix technology allows for high payloads, particularly oil-soluble nutrients. For example, one ConCordix Smart Chew can hold up to 750mg of marine oil. One can only imagine a sea of possibilities with ConCordix.

Enhanced absorption

Our patented dosage system packages lipid nutrients in billions of microscopic oil droplets that are stabilized in an emulsion. This technology increases lipid nutrient absorption by 44%. Our unique design is specific to ConCordix Smart Chews which allows the option of combining both lipid with water-soluble nutrients in one convenient dose.

Nutrient absorption

Our GI tract has multiple folds that contain pits which hold finger like projections called villi. These pits, folds and villi increase the gut’s surface and is what allows for optimal nutrient absorption.

Likewise, mother nature strategically packages nutrients in foods to optimize their surface area. For instance, a piece of salmon contains evenly distributed microscopic oil droplets that significantly increases surface area of the nutrients that are exposed to the gut.

We took a cue from nature and created a patented technology which packages lipid nutrients in microscopic oil droplets that are stabilized in an emulsion. This unique design is specific to our Smart Chews. You won’t find our patented emulsification system in any other delivery system in the market today.

Sugar-Free & Natural Flavors

ConCordix Smart Chews utilize plant-based sweeteners which provide multiple health benefits. Our sugar-free flavor system addresses health concerns such as dental care, weight-loss, and diabetes.

Nutrient stability & earth-friendly packaging

Our thoughtful packaging is made from sustainable material which is designed to effectively protect nutrients from oxidation. Cartons that house the aluminum blister packs are made from recycled material. The blister packs individually seal each Smart Chew, protecting each dose from humidity, light, and air oxidation with no exposure to the elements until ready to be consumed. Light-weight and convenient, our packaging is conducive to an active lifestyle.

 

Elderberry

Elderberry is used for its antioxidant activity, to lower cholesterol, to improve vision, to boost the immune system, to improve heart health and for coughs, colds, flu, bacterial and viral infections and tonsillitis. Flavonoids, small constituents that are present in elderberries act as antioxidants and support the immune system. One of these flavonoids is quercetin, which has been investigated in many clinical studies. It’s believed that quercetin reduces inflammatory processes that are observed in arthritis and cardiovascular diseases. Because of its modulatory effect on inflammatory reactions, it reduces pain and swelling.

Elderberries contain organic pigments, tannin, amino acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, rutin, viburnic acid, vitamin A and B and a large amount of vitamin C. They are also mildly laxative, diuretic, and diaphoretic.

Beta-glucan

Beta-glucan is an essential food constituent. It is a type of fiber mainly found in (bakers) yeasts. Beta-glucan consists of D-glucose monomers linked by a β-glycosidic bond. Studies suggest that beta-glucan may reduce chronic diseases, cancer, allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, and immune-related diseases. Derived from fungi and bakers yeast, beta-glucan consists of a (1,3)-β-linked backbone with small numbers of (1,6)-β-linked side chains, and is essentially known for its immune-modulating effects. In addition, bakers yeast as source for (1,3/1,6) beta-glucan was approved in 2008 as ‘Generally Recognized as Safe’ (GRAS) by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).

Immune system

The key role of beta-glucan is to reinforce the ability of the innate immune system so that it quickly recognizes and responds to an invading pathogen which is essential for controlling infection and keeping the body healthy. Importantly, beta-glucan activates the innate immunity with subsequent effects on the adaptive immunity activation, without overstimulating the immune response.

Other effects

There is scientific evidence that beta-glucans may reduce hay fever and infections in general and infections after surgery. Beta-glucans also might extent the life in some patients with advanced cancer when given longer than 1 year. Oral administration of beta glucans maintains normal blood cholesterol by preventing the absorption of cholesterol from food in the stomach and intestines. As a result, low density lipoprotein (LDL; eg, bad cholesterol) is diminished suggesting that beta-glucans reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease.

A comprehensive review of beta-glucans and their effects on the immune system is available as a White Paper at Vitux AS.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is an essential fat-soluble bioactive, also known as retinol. There are 2 forms of vitamin A available in the diet: preformed and provitamin A. Preformed vitamin A comes from animal sources, with high concentrations in fish oils, eggs and milk. Provitamin A comes from plant sources and is mainly found in the form as carotenoids with the most important one: beta-carotene. The body converts these provitamin carotenoids into vitamin A.

Both preformed vitamin A and provitamin A must be metabolized intracellularly to retinal and retinoic acid, the active forms of vitamin A, to support the vitamin’s important biological function. Vitamin A plays a key role in several bodily functions including:

Vision

Vitamin A is critical for vision as an essential component of rhodopsin, a protein that absorbs light in the retinal receptors. Vitamin A maintains vision because it continuously forms new rhodopsin. Retinoic acid, is a substitute of vitamin A and supports the conjunctival membranes and cornea.

Growth and development

Vitamin A is involved in genetic regulation of cell formation and differentiation and intercellular communication. It is critical during the (neurological) development of the foetus.

Immune system

Vitamin A also supports the immune system and helps to protect against infections and invading antigens.

Skin and mucous membranes

The skin is a mechanical immune barrier, and sufficient concentrations of vitamin A available, maintain skin health.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has acknowledged the following beneficial effects of preformed vitamin A and provitamin A as a basis for health claims:
• Normal cell differentiation
• Normal function of the immune system
• Maintenance of normal skin and mucous membranes
• Maintenance of normal vision
• Normal metabolism of iron

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods such as fish. When the skin is exposed to the sun, the human body is able to synthesize vitamin D from ultraviolet rays. It is involved in many different biological processes including, bone health, immune system and cell division.

Bone health

Vitamin D plays a key role in promoting calcium absorption in the intestine and maintaining adequate blood calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal bone mineralization. In this way, vitamin D is important for the proper functioning of the skeleton, and may prevent that bones to become brittle as in osteoporosis.

Other effects

Vitamin D has beneficial effects on muscle function and strength. The vitamin is also involved in cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function and reduction of inflammation. There is accumulating epidemiologic data that a low vitamin D status is inversely associated with disorders such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has acknowledged the following beneficial effects as a basis for health claims:
• Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function
• Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system and healthy inflammatory response
• Vitamin D contributes to the normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus and maintenance of normal blood calcium concentrations
• Vitamin D contributes to the normal cell division
• Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones
• Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal teeth
