Body reason guide

A buying guide is designed to simplify the purchasing process, by providing more necessary and structured information to the buyer. The purpose of giving buyers guide is to make buying process more easy and faster.

Human body resembles a huge factory involving a lot of machinery which consists of many parts. Each of them can break over some time and, therefore, must be maintained so that its life cycle be prolonged as much as possible. Nature is said to have a cure-all recipe and this is exactly our philosophy.  In order to make it easier for you to find the right dietary supplements we have designed a guide list to help you focus on what you need in the context of the different parts of your body and health concerns.

  • Antioxidants
    <p><span>Antioxidants are substances mitigating the impacts or preventing the emerging of free radicals in human body, or converting them to a less reactive form. Thus, they restrain the oxidising process in the organism. These substances can be divided to natural (existing in Nature or in some food) and synthetic (created artificially and not existing in Nature in any relevant quantities). Antioxidants include, for example, vitamins C, E, B2 and the mineral elements of zinc, selenium, copper, manganese etc.</span></p>
  • Ageing
    <p><span>Ageing is understood to be a process which demonstrates as dropping vitality due to age and reduced effectiveness and efficiency of the functioning of the organism as a whole and its decreasing ability to correct and replace defective and dead cells with new ones. Ageing takes place from the very conception at a more or less constant rate. For this reason, it is appropriate to pay attention to the ageing processes and alleviation of their signs at any age.</span></p>
  • Blood sugar
    <p><span>Proper functioning of sugar is ensured by insulin. Normal sugar levels of a healthy human range between 4 – 6 mmol/l. This value can be obtained easily from a drop of blood. Repeatedly increased glucose levels are initial disorder signals which should never be underestimated. If an insufficient level of insulin or no insulin is produced by the pancreas blood sugar is not getting to where it should be, which possibly results in vein and tissue damage. </span></p>
  • Digestive system
    <p><span>The digestive system or gastrointestinal tract is a set of organs which cater for food intake, its mechanical and chemical processing, absorption of nutrients, and elimination of undigested and indigestible components of food. Its major function is the retrieval of nutrients from food, i.e. digestion. The human digestive system is almost 8 meters long and its course is segmented, twisted and widened in various ways. It runs from the mouth to the anus and it is formed by two types of organs (the organs of the gastrointestinal tract and glands). A well-working digestive system is hence the basic precondition for the proper retrieval of the necessary nutrients and all substances.</span></p>
  • Energy & physical...
    <p><span>The body energy and overall physical condition are very important for every individual, a formula applies in this respect that a sound physical condition equals good health. Good health is the basis and precondition of fitness and, proportionately, we improve and promote our health by increasing our fitness. A sufficient motoric activity and adequate physical condition are thus of key importance for our body. </span></p>
  • Heart & vessels
    <p><strong>The heart</strong> is the hardest working muscle in the human body. Located almost in the center of the chest, a healthy adult heart is the size of a clenched adult fist. By age 70, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times. The heart is always working. It pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood daily.</p> <p>A child's heart works just as hard as an adult's heart. In fact, at rest, a baby's heart may beat up to 130 to 150 times a minute. An adult's heart often beats between 60 and 100 times a minute. The rate at which the heart pumps gradually slows down from birth to teen years.</p> <p>The cardiovascular system is made up of the heart and blood vessels. It circulates blood throughout the body. A healthy cardiovascular system is vital to supplying the body with oxygen and nutrients.</p> <h5>How the heart works</h5> <p>The heart is a large, muscular organ that pumps blood filled with oxygen and nutrients through the blood vessels to the body tissues. It's made up of:</p> <ul> <li> <p><span>4 chambers. </span>The 2 upper chambers are the atria. They receive and collect blood. The 2 lower chambers are the ventricles. They pump blood to other parts of your body. Here is the process: </p> <ul> <li> <p>The right atrium receives blood from the body. This blood is low in oxygen. This is the blood from the veins.</p> </li> <li> <p>The right ventricle pumps the blood from the right atrium into the lungs to pick up oxygen and remove carbon dioxide. </p> </li> <li> <p>The left atrium receives blood from the lungs. This blood is rich in oxygen.</p> </li> <li> <p>The left ventricle pumps the blood from the left atrium out to the body, supplying all organs with oxygen-rich blood.</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><span>4 valves. </span>The 4 valves are the aortic, pulmonary, mitral, and tricuspid valves. They let blood flow forward and prevent the backward flow.</p> </li> <li> <p><span>Blood vessels. </span>These bring blood to the lungs, where oxygen enters the bloodstream, and then to the body:</p> <ul> <li> <p>The inferior and superior vena cava bring oxygen-poor blood from the body into the right atrium.</p> </li> <li> <p>The pulmonary artery channels oxygen-poor blood from the right ventricle into the lungs, where oxygen enters the bloodstream.</p> </li> <li> <p>The pulmonary veins bring oxygen-rich blood to the left atrium.</p> </li> <li> <p>The aorta channels oxygen-rich blood to the body from the left ventricle.</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><span>An electrical system that stimulates contraction of the heart muscle.</span></p> </li> </ul> <p>A network of arteries and veins also carry blood throughout the body:</p> <ul> <li> <p>Arteries transport blood from the heart to the body tissues.</p> </li> <li> <p>Veins carry blood back to the heart.</p> </li> </ul>
  • Cholesterol
    <p><span>Cholesterol is indispensable for a regular function of blood vessels in the human body, which it helps process fats, and plays an important role in the construction of cell membranes. Without cholesterol it would be difficult to maintain a normal level of hormones and even to regulate the quantity of vitamin D which is generated naturally in the body. Two basic types are distinguished – LDL, the “bad” cholesterol, and HDL, the “good” one. The LDL is characteristic for its ability to build up on artery walls if overproduced. We refer to an increased LDL level if its quantity exceeds 3.4 mmol/L. In contrast, the HDL cholesterol assists in rerouting excess cholesterol back to the liver thus preventing its deposition in blood vessels. The HDL value should possibly be high, at least 1.2 mmol/L in men and 1.0 mmol/L in women. Natural biomaterials, such as those taken from garlic (or, even better, from its fermented black form), from the leaves of the silver birch (Betula pendula), from boswellia, and from green tea, are highly conducive to maintaining an optimal cholesterol level. </span></p>
  • Immunity
    <h3>What is the immune system?</h3> <p>Your immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, and organs. Together they help the body fight infections and other diseases.</p> <p>When germs such as bacteria or viruses invade your body, they attack and multiply. This is called an infection. The infection causes the disease that makes you sick. Your immune system protects you from the disease by fighting off the germs.</p> <h3>What are the parts of the immune system?</h3> <p>The immune system has many different parts, including</p> <ul> <li>Your skin, which can help prevent germs from getting into the body</li> <li>Mucous membranes, which are the moist, inner linings of some organs and body cavities. They make mucus and other substances which can trap and fight germs.</li> <li>White blood cells, which fight germs</li> <li>Organs and tissues of the lymph system, such as the thymus, spleen, tonsils, lymph nodes, lymph vessels, and bone marrow. They produce, store, and carry white blood cells.</li> </ul> <h3>How does the immune system work?</h3> <p>Your immune system defends your body against substances it sees as harmful or foreign. These substances are called antigens. They may be germs such as bacteria and viruses. They might be chemicals or toxins. They could also be cells that are damaged from things like cancer or sunburn.</p> <p>When your immune system recognizes an antigen, it attacks it. This is called an immune response. Part of this response is to make antibodies. Antibodies are proteins that work to attack, weaken, and destroy antigens. Your body also makes other cells to fight the antigen.</p> <p>Afterwards, your immune system remembers the antigen. If it sees the antigen again, it can recognize it. It will quickly send out the right antibodies, so in most cases, you don't get sick. This protection against a certain disease is called immunity.</p> <h3>What are the types of immunity?</h3> <p>There are three different types of immunity:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Innate immunity</strong> is the protection that you are born with. It is your body's first line of defense. It includes barriers such as the skin and mucous membranes. They keep harmful substances from entering the body. It also includes some cells and chemicals which can attack foreign substances.</li> <li><strong>Active immunity</strong>, also called adaptive immunity, develops when you are infected with or vaccinated against a foreign substance. Active immunity is usually long-lasting. For many diseases, it can last your entire life.</li> <li><strong>Passive immunity</strong> happens when you receive antibodies to a disease instead of making them through your own immune system. For example, newborn babies have antibodies from their mothers. People can also get passive immunity through blood products that contain antibodies. This kind of immunity gives you protection right away. But it only lasts a few weeks or months.</li> </ul> <h3>What can go wrong with the immune system?</h3> <p>Sometimes a person may have an immune response even though there is no real threat. This can lead to problems such as allergies, asthma, and autoimmune<a href="https://medlineplus.gov/autoimmunediseases.html" id="anch_58"> </a>disease. If you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake.</p> <p>Other immune system problems happen when your immune system does not work correctly. These problems include immunodeficiency diseases. If you have an immunodeficiency disease, you get sick more often. Your infections may last longer and can be more serious and harder to treat. They are often genetic disorders.</p> <p>There are other diseases that can affect your immune system. For example, HIV is a virus that harms your immune system by destroying your white blood cells. If HIV is not treated, it can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). People with AIDS have badly damaged immune systems. They get an increasing number of severe illnesses.</p>
  • Liver
    <p>The liver is one of the most important organs of human body. The liver regulates most chemical levels in the blood and excretes a product called bile. This helps carry away waste products from the liver. All the blood leaving the stomach and intestines passes through the liver. The liver processes this blood and breaks down, balances, and creates the nutrients and also metabolizes drugs into forms that are easier to use for the rest of the body or that are nontoxic. More than 500 vital functions have been identified with the liver. Some of the more well-known functions include the following:</p> <ul> <li>Production of bile, which helps carry away waste and break down fats in the small intestine during digestion</li> <li>Production of certain proteins for blood plasma</li> <li>Production of cholesterol and special proteins to help carry fats through the body</li> <li>Conversion of excess glucose into glycogen for storage (glycogen can later be converted back to glucose for energy) and to balance and make glucose as needed</li> <li>Regulation of blood levels of amino acids, which form the building blocks of proteins</li> <li>Processing of hemoglobin for use of its iron content (the liver stores iron)</li> <li>Conversion of poisonous ammonia to urea (urea is an end product of protein metabolism and is excreted in the urine)</li> <li>Clearing the blood of drugs and other poisonous substances</li> <li>Regulating blood clotting</li> <li>Resisting infections by making immune factors and removing bacteria from the bloodstream</li> <li>Clearance of bilirubin, also from red blood cells. If there is an accumulation of bilirubin, the skin and eyes turn yellow.</li> </ul> <p>When the liver has broken down harmful substances, its by-products are excreted into the bile or blood. Bile by-products enter the intestine and leave the body in the form of feces. Blood by-products are filtered out by the kidneys, and leave the body in the form of urine.</p>
  • Muscles
    <p>The muscular system is responsible for the movement of the human body. Attached to the bones of the skeletal system are about 700 named muscles that make up roughly half of a person’s body weight. Each of these muscles is a discrete organ constructed of skeletal muscle tissue, blood vessels, tendons, and nerves. Muscle tissue is also found inside of the heart, digestive organs, and blood vessels. In these organs, muscles serve to move substances throughout the body.</p> <p>Muscles are all made of the same material, a type of elastic tissue (sort of like the material in a rubber band). Thousands, or even tens of thousands, of small fibers make up each muscle.</p> <p>You have three different types of muscles in your body: <strong>smooth</strong> muscle, <strong>cardiac</strong> (say: KAR-dee-ak) muscle, and <strong>skeletal</strong> (say: SKEL-uh-tul) muscle.</p> <h3 id="kha_11"></h3>
