3 pillars of disease prevention
To maintain the health of our body, the following 3 systems are essential:
- R – Regenerative processes, stem cell mobilization,
- I – Immune system, the defense system of the body
- A – Antioxidant system, scavenging free radicals
All three systems are extremely important for a healthy life, which is why the initial letters of our company is made from the above letters, to which the Latin word vita (meaning: life) is joined. RIAVITA therefore represents the essentials of healthy life.
Regeneration is a natural process of the body to replace damaged or old cells with new, healthy cells. The source of new cells are the various stem cells and progenitor cells, which are thus key players of regeneration. After consuming certain herbal combinations, a larger number of stem cells enter the bloodstream (stem cell mobilization), which has been shown to increase the ability to regenerate.
The proper functioning of our Immune system is crucial for a healthy life. It protects us from the external pathogens (e.g. bacteria, viruses, infectious fungi), and also fights against emerging cancer cells. Its function is extremely complex, still, many herbs and medicinal mushrooms are capable of inducing immunomodulation, that is the scientific expression for ”immune strengthening”.
Antioxidant system. Our body is exposed to a number of harmful effects on a daily basis, whether physical or mental, which often manifests in the form of free radicals. Therefore, it is important for our body to have adequate antioxidant capacity, since antioxidants are able to neutralize reactive free radicals. Our antioxidant system is a protective mechanism of the body that can be easily supported by the intake of dietary antioxidants. Such antioxidants are certain vitamins, e.g. vitamin C, or flavonoids, e.g. quercetin, apigenin, and polyphenols, e.g. curcumin, but lycopene, which gives tomatoes a red color, has also remarkable antioxidant properties.
