The Natural Choice for Resistance and Vitality
As we all know, the immune system protects our bodies and is our natural defence against infections, viruses, stress and illness. Our hectic busy lifestyles can put pressure on our immune system; often causing stress that can weaken our defences. If only there was something that could help with this? Well, maybe there is.
Eladon Ltd started trading in 1991. 'Elagen' was its first product. Elagen is a pure, powdered, standardised extract of concentrated, high-quality Eleutherococcus senticosus, in easy- to- take, capsule form.
So what is Eleutherococcus Senticosus?
Eleutherococcus senticosus, aka Eleuthero or Siberian Ginseng, is a herbal extract. It was first discovered by scientists who were searching for other sources of 'tonic' plants that are related to the 'ginseng' family.
Eleuthero is classified as an 'adaptogen' which means that it can help the human body resist a wide variety of potentially harmful influences such as viruses, toxins, temperature changes and radiation. It has proved itself in over 1,000 studies and this research has shown that it can increase energy, stamina and task performance.
Its use can be traced as far back as 4,000 years. Advances in science have now allowed us to bring Eleuthero in its optimum format - Elagen High Potency capsules.
According to research, almost everyone can benefit from its use and it is widely recognised as being a safe and effective way of strengthening and maintaining a healthy immune system.
'Elagen Sport' was scientifically designed for sports men and women. It is the first sports supplement to combine the adaptogenic effects of Eleuthero with the antioxidant and catalytic properties of CoQ10. While it has become especially popular amongst many triathletes and other endurance athletes, it is widely used and highly regarded across many disciplines.
What is CoQ10?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a naturally occurring compound found in every cell in the body. It plays an important role in the production of energy within cells. It is an enzyme that is part protein, part vitamin and it acts as a catalyst in a variety of chemical processes within the body. These include the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) which is essential for healthy metabolism. It is also involved in the contraction of muscles.
The body stores enough ATP for 5 to 8 minutes of rigorous activity and so ATP needs to be constantly replenished. For this to happen, your body needs a good regular supply of CoQ10. CoQ10 also plays another very important role as an 'antioxidant'. Antioxidants protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules known as 'free radicals' that can lead to accelerated ageing and illnesses.
