What is Astragalus?

Astragalus is the name of one of the largest groups of plants in the world. I know this seems daunting, but when used properly, it can do a number of delightful things to your body. However, in this case, we’re going to focus on the two largest functions of this chemical in the body.

First of all, astragalus will improve your immune function. Studies are indicating that it helps produce the immune cells that are so very vital to your health. This is especially important at this time of year when people are getting sick all the time by not taking good care of themselves.

Secondly, astragalus will assist in the care of various heart conditions. Your blood pressure will decrease and blood vessels can relax. While this is not yet researched enough to replace conventional care, studies are very positive.

What’s In It for Me?

On top of astragalus’s effect on your immune system and heart functioning, this chemical will also help keep you going. In some cases, it is used to help restore immune function after chemotherapy. Can you imagine the boost that that could give your system? I know I’m already starting to sniffle for my yearly cold… maybe it’s time to pick up some Seven+ Pro…

What is Eleutherococcus?

I’m sure you remember a little while ago when ginseng was all the rage. You couldn’t sneeze without hitting a product that was using it for one purpose or another. Do you remember what it was for? Helping memory function? Does that sound familiar? If it doesn’t, then maybe we should look into getting some more of this into your diet. Well, eleutherococcus is from the same family of plants.

In this case, the eleutherococcus acts as an adaptogen in your body. An adaptogen is a chemical that facilitates your body’s reactions to external and internal stimuli. In this case, it’ll help you fight off that flu you feel coming off and will also help deal with when the room is just way too hot for your comfort.

What’s In It for Me?

So what will adding this delightful little chemical to your diet with Seven+ Pro do for you? Well, for one, it will help strengthen the body to resist fatigue and stress. Having a hard time at the office for the last month? Your body will have an easier time fighting off that nasty seasonal cold that you’ve been cooking. It can also help normalize your blood pressure and stimulate your immune system. And this time of year, I don’t think anyone can say no to that.

Amino Acids

What are Amino Acids?

It doesn’t get much simpler than this: Amino Acids are the building blocks of life. Are you ready for your chemistry moment? You are? Good. In general, the string of chemicals H2NCHRCOOH is considered to be your go-to composition for an amino acid.

These amino acids are the cornerstones of proteins. These proteins form the very fundamental building blocks of your body. When your body breaks protein down during digestion (like after a fantastic meal), it releases twenty-two different types of amino acid into your body. So now you’re wondering what these acids do for you, aren’t you?

What’s In It for Me?

In some ways, it’s almost easier to explain what an amino acid won’t do for you. Amino acids are going to build your cells, they’re going to repair your tissues, and they’re going to create antibodies when you catch that damnable cold for the third time this winter. These acids carry oxygen throughout your body and help facilitate all of your muscular motions. Do those things sound important? They sure sound pretty important to me. It’s a pretty tough burden for such a little chemical, but an amino acid knows its job and does it better than anyone else.

Omega Acids

What are These Omega Acids?

It’s probably a little bit like the various vitamins we’ve talked about before. I’m sure you remember them, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin Etc… they’re all there. Well, the Omega fatty acids are fatty acids that help your body to function. And there are more than a few here that your body needs. Like…

What is Omega 3 and What Can it Do for Me?

One of the two essential fatty acids, Omega 3, has quite a few things that this chemical can do for you. Studies indicate that it can help to decrease your risks for colon, breast, and prostate cancer. It can decrease your risk for cardiovascular disease. On top of these, it can also provide stimulation for healthy growth in the younger members of your family.

What is Omega 6 and What Can it Do for Me?

Omega 6 is sort of the teammate of Omega 3. They both do a lot of the same things and their lack is the culprit behind a lot of heart disease. The important thing is that you get a balance of each of these two chemicals. Together, they’ll the same sorts of things, as long as you have a balance… like the one created in Seven+.

What is Omega 7 and What Can it Do For Me?

Omega 7, on the other hand has a different mandate. It is created from an acid that declines in the human body as you grow older. This will essentially help to rejuvenate your skin and strengthen your digestive and respiratory processes. Your body will create this chemical naturally, but Omega 7 will help replenish these acids.

What is Omega 9 and What Can it Do For Me?

Omega 9 is the last of these fatty acids that your body makes use of and it does something else entirely from the other three in Seven+. What can it do? Well, it does a lot of great things like reduce your cholesterol levels and reduces the resistance to insulin (improving your blood sugar). It also assists in immune system functioning and protection against some forms of cancer.

What Does it All Mean?

When combined, all of these different Omega acids provide a number of benefits to the human body. It’s not so much a “what can these do for me” as a “what can’t these do for me”.

Beta Carotene

What is Beta Carotene?

Beta Carotene is another chemical that has antioxidant properties (remember, we’ve covered a few of those before). You can find it in such things as palm oil, fungi and algae… but don’t let that turn you away. For those of you who liked high school chemistry, the chemical symbol for Beta Carotene is C40H56. That, my friends, is a lot of carbon and hydrogen.

The important thing is that your body can turn this chemical into retinol. Does that sound familiar? Well, keep reading.

What’s In It for Me?

Do you remember Vitamin A and its form in animals, Retinol? You know that lovely chemical that does all sorts of lovely things for your vision. Well, one of the things your body does with is convert this chemical into Retinol.

Well, this is required for the production of the chemical rhodopsin… and I know I’m throwing a lot of chemical names at you here, but rhodopsin is a visual pigment in your eye that is used in low light situations. You remember when you were a kid and your parents told you carrots would help you see in the dark better? That’s Beta Carotene.

Folic Acid

What is Folic Acid?

Possessing the chemical composition of C19H19 N7O6, you’re most likely to find folic acid in vegetables like spinach, asparagus, and turnips. In general, it’s very important during phases of rapid cell division and growth. It is also important in the maintenance of new cells. For example, in 1931, the research Lucy Wills identified folate as a nutrient that was needed to prevent anemia (which is to say a lack of healthy red blood cells) during pregnancy. That’s definitely something that you would do well to avoid.

What’s In It for Me?

Folic acid has a lot of fun benefits to your body. Right off the top, studies indicate that folic acid can decrease the risk of stroke in a person. On top of this, folic acid regulates certain amino acids that are normally found in blood. Folic acid keeps the levels of these amino acids low since high levels can lead to heart disease and stroke.

In addition to those, folic acid assists in the prevention of cancer. Cancer, is essentially, the breakdown of DNA in your cells. Folic acid is associated with the repair and functioning of DNA, so if you have a healthy amount in your body, you can decrease the chances of this happening.

Is that enough? No? Well, deficiencies of folic acid have been linked to depressions. On top of that, sufficient amounts in older individuals have also shown an increase in mental agility. It’s really got something for everybody!

What is Calcium?

With the chemical symbol Ca and the atomic number 20, Calcium is another one of those minerals that is so very important for your body. How many times have you heard a commercial saying that you should drink more milk? You’ve probably completely lost count, haven’t you? Well, the reason you should drink more milk is because it’s a high source of calcium. And calcium, say it with me now, helps build strong bones in our bodies.

What’s In It for Me?

To understand how this is important, let’s discuss what these enzymes do. An enzyme in your body acts as a catalyst? Do you remember what a catalyst does from high school chemistry? You do? That’s great! But there are others out there that don’t, so let me explain: a catalyst lowers the energy necessary for a chemical reaction.

So let’s talk about a chemical reaction… like the one that needs to happen for your muscle to contract and move your finger to click the mouse. The enzymes in your body make it easier for you to do this. And the magnesium in your body is making the enzymes lives’ easier by helping power this reaction.
