1. What is nutria ®? go to top

nutria ® is a highly concentrated phytonutrient supplement with added antioxidant vitamin and minerals. Each serving of nutria ® provides the equivalent lycopene value of 2.5 servings of fresh tomatoes, the equivalent sulforaphane value of one complete serving of broccoli and the selenium value of 1.5 pounds of beef or seafood. In addition, each serving of nutria ® provides the antioxidants and phytonutrients from 20 sources of fresh fruits and vegetables.

2. What are "phytonutrients"? go to top

Phytonutrients are a newly discovered class of nutrients found in plants. ( Phyto is derived from the Greek word for plant.) These nutrients protect the plant from damage due to sunlight and other environmental stresses. Recent research suggests that phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables may play an important role in protecting the cells of the human body as well. Certain phytonutrients may also have strong antioxidant properties which can help the body fight the harmful effects of free-radical cell damage. Free radicals are molecules with an extra electrical charge that seek out and damage healthy cells in the body. Free radicals are found in food additives, air pollution, cigarette smoke, chlorinated drinking water and are also part of normal metabolism. It is clear that every one of us is exposed to free radicals every day and that we should do all we can to minimise their potential damaging effects.

3. Why are lycopene and sulphoraphane important phytonutrients? go to top

These two phytonutrients are being carefully studied for their apparent ability to protect the body from major disease. Lycopene and sulphoraphane seem to have extra disease fighting and health prevention abilities.

4. Can you get too many phytonutrients? go to top

No. In fact, the more phytonutrients your diet contains, the healthier your diet is. Many studies have confirmed that people with diets high in plant nutrients tend to have fewer incidences of major illness and disease.

5. What is the best time to take nutria ®? go to top

nutria ® capsules should always be taken with a meal as lycopene and sulphoraphane are better absorbed by the body when a small amount of fat is present.

6. Is there any sugar in nutria ®? go to top

No. nutria ® capsules do not contain sugar.

7. What role does the additional vitamins and minerals in nutria ® play? go to top

The additional vitamins and minerals found in nutria ® are added for their powerful antioxidant capacities. nutria ® has been formulated to be one of the most powerful antioxidant and cell protecting formulas available anywhere in the world.

8. Do I still need to eat fresh fruits and vegetables? go to top

Absolutely! nutria ® is not intended to replace fresh fruits and vegetables but to help supplement the important nutrients provided in them. It is well recognised that the majority of people do not consume the suggested servings of these foods on a daily basis. Fresh fruits and vegetables also provide dietary fibre and water, two important elements to good health.

9. Will the nutria ® work together with intra ® and Lifecycles® Vitamins and Minerals? go to top

The human body is a very complex machine that requires many nutrients in order to perform at its best. The nutrients contained in intra ®, nutria ® and the different Lifecycles® nutritional supplements have different roles in the body but work in harmony with one another to help provide better health.

10. Can I still take nutria ® if I don't like taking capsules? go to top

Yes. nutria ® capsules can be pulled apart and the contents can be sprinkled over your meal or into a beverage, such as a Lifestyles Dream Shake or fruit juice.

11. Can you tell me more about SelenoExcell? go to top

SelenoExcell is a certified 100% organically bound selenium that has the highest level of bioavailability of any selenium available. Bioavailability is a measure of the amount of a food or supplement the body actually absorbs. This is a key element in any supplement as the body only benefits from nutrients it can absorb and utilise. When speaking of a mineral like selenium, organic forms of selenium are used by the body better than inorganic salt forms, thus making them more bioavailable.

12. How much selenium is safe to take daily? go to top

The upper safe limit of selenium intake has been estimated at 800mcg per day. It would be impossible to get anywhere near this level from food alone.The suggested daily intake for selenium is 200mcg to 400mcg per day. The trials currently underway use SelenoExcell at a minimum level of 200mcg per day.

13. Are there different forms of selenium? go to top

In the nutraceutical market, selenium can be purchased either as a salt form or in an organically bound form. The salts are sodium selenite and sodium selenate, and both have been shown to be less bioavailable than organically bound forms of selenium. The organically forms of selenium are high selenium yeast or selenomethionine. High selenium yeast contains multiple organic selenium compounds whereas selenomethionine is a single amino acid (methionine) with a selenium molecule attached to it. There are several qualities of high selenium yeast products with the best one to use being a product that certifies that it contains 100% organically bound selenium; as many high selenium yeast products can not certify this claim.

nutria ® capsules contain SelenoExcell, a certified 100% organically bound selenium.

14. Are there any current studies using High Selenium Yeast? go to top

Yes, following the success of the 1996 Nutrition Against Cancer Trial and other clinical observations, there are a series of cancer and health related trials currently underway using High Selenium Yeast as the intervention agent. Some of these studies are being funded by the following organisations: National Cancer Institute (NCI)[United States & Canada], National Institute of Health (NIH), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Department of Defence (DOD), International Cancer Alliances.

15. What is an antioxidant? go to top

Antioxidants are minerals and vitamins that can inhibit the formation of free radicals before they are able to cause damage by breaking down the molecules of the cell..

16. Should I supplement with other antioxidants in addition to the selenium? go to top

Certainly, selenium and vitamin E each have specific functions in fighting free radicals, but they also have common functions to protect the body against free radicals. When taken together the body gets the benefit of each of their specific functions, plus their common functions complement each other to perform better as one than as two separate entities. It is believed that these two antioxidants can work together "synergistically" to prevent free radicals from damaging healthy cells and therefore reduce the risk of cancer. Each nutria ® capsule offers a measured balance of organically bound selenium, antioxidants and phytonutrients to supplement any diet.

17. What is the purpose of Green Tea Extract in the nutria ® formula? go to top

Green Tea contains a potent family of antioxidants called polyphenols. Research indicates that polyphenols may have an ability to protect the cells of the body from harmful substances such as free radicals. Because of this potential protective factor, Green Tea Extract was included in the formula. nutria ® formula.

18. Why did you put both fruit and vegetable extracts in the nutria ® capsules? I heard that you should not eat fruits and vegetables at the same time? go to top

Fruit and vegetable extracts were blended together in one capsule to provide the goodness from a wide variety of different fruit and vegetable sources. Each fruit and vegetable provides our bodies with specific nutrients. Other reasons include convenience (you only need to take two nutria ® capsules per day, not four) and a more economical retail cost for the product.

There is no valid biochemical reason why you cannot consume fruits and vegetables together. The body has the enzymes that are fully capable of breaking these foods down to their basic end products which is basically sugar, fibre, water, and vitamins and minerals.

19. What are the capsules themselves made from? go to top

The capsules used for nutria ® and intra ® Capsules are made from gelatin (a type of protein) and water. They may be separated to sprinkle over food.
