Editorial NUTRITION : A Natural choice
Today's society places a great deal of emphasis on productivity, profitability and speed. In this context,
a healthy diet becomes an almost impossible task. Yet never before have we had such a variety of
fresh food available. This abundance of food and dietary information does not change the fact that
most people simply do not eat properly; they consume too much over-refined food, too fast. Refined
food is very insidious. For instance, white sugar (which is linked to diabetes and triglyceride levels in
the blood, among other things) is present in virtually all prepared foods. We have unfortunately
forgotten how to prepare food from scratch, using fresh, wholesome produce.

Do you know anyone who eats the 5 to 10 daily servings of fruits and vegetables recommended by
the Canadian Food Guide ?

All the experts agree that most chronic diseases are caused by poor diet
and poor lifestyle. Whether heart disease, arthritis, ADHD, type II diabetes,
hypertension, or even cancer, society's diseases are linked to inadequate diet.

Nutritherapy came into being in an attempt to respond to this


imbalance. Its goal is to provide the body with vital nutrients of
sufficient quality and quantity to counteract today's chronic
diseases and restore health. The nutritherapy objective, in
developing specific food supplements, is to provide everyone
with the means to enjoy life to the full.

Respecting the Metabolism
Health has always been a major concern for Man over the ages.
Each civilization and each era in history have developed a medical care system based on
their culture, knowledge and needs. The Western system developed a technical-based
approach to health. The West, confident in its knowledge of chemistry, has overlooked the
fact that the human body is governed by biochemical dictates. The difference between these
two concepts is the Greek word βιοσ or ‘bios’ meaning “life”.
This conventional approach to health has undoubtedly brought about significant results,
while, at the same time:
• Overlooking Man as a whole entity;
• Failing to integrate overall prevention;
• Disregarding Man’s metabolism;
• Ignoring cellular aging;
• Simply focusing on the symptoms prevalent in modern civilization's illnesses and
malaises while foregoing the causes.
Consequently, the conventional approach is now bearing the brunt of its limitations.
Epidemiological studies and research in nutrition conducted over the last 25 years have
shown that only naturally structured, highly metabolizable molecules, are able to deeply
affect the body and restore its basic biochemical balance.
Yves PONROY Laboratories has been treading this path for the last 25 years, in conjunction
with the largest public research organizations, as a means of developing a nutritherapy pro-
totype capable of acting as a health model for the third millennium.

Ovophospholipids
Ovophospholipids®, a world exclusive from Yves Ponroy Laboratories, are the product
of 25 years of research, conducted with major public research organizations. In 1999,
the European FDA recognized their viability with regard to the functionality of the
central nervous system.
Numerous international clinical studies have warranted the interest shown Ovophospholipids® in
improving cognitive disorders (learning abilities, memory of recent events, concentration),
behavioural disorders (agitation, nervousness, hyperactivity) and sleep disorders.
Ovophospholipids® have also displayed their effectiveness in fighting the aging of the brain
(age-related fatigue, loss of memory) and in regenerating the retina.
One feature of Ovophospholipids® is their similarity in structure and composition with the
cerebral phospholipids that make up our nerve cell membranes.
Ovophospholipids® have the ability to rejuvenate impaired phospholipid membranes over time and
restore basic membrane properties by protecting the cells and ensuring a fluid neuron exchange.
Therefore, Ovophospholipids® ensure the release of neuro-
transmitters (serotonin, melatonin, dopamine…) and help in the
flow of information to and from the brain.
Ovophospholipids® are revolutionary to alternative medicine as
they give way to very exciting perspectives in restoring major
brain and intellectual functions.

POLLERGINE has been specially designed by our laboratories to decrease the reactions of
allergy-related inflammation and restore balance to the immune system. Adverse reactions
such as sneezing, tingling eyes or runny nose are all part of a complex phenomenon. When
confronted with allergens, mainly pollen, dust and mites, the immune system reacts and
releases histamines causing the nasal membranes to become inflamed and thereby produce
the discomforts associated with allergies.
Formulation
• The phytosterols found in squash seed oil, zinc and selenium prepare the body for a suitable and
effective immune reaction.
• Flavones, Omega 3 fatty acids and manganese limit the inflammatory process that triggers nasal
drip, coughing and watering of the eyes.
• The therapeutic qualities of quail eggs for nasal allergies have been studied extensively. Quail eggs
also contain abundant protective mechanisms for the body.
Directions for Use
2 capsules daily in the morning once the flowers begin to bloom (March-April) and until the end
of summer (August-September).

NASAL SPRAY
Indication
Nasal health care
The NASAL SPRAY ensures safe and continuous care to the nasal passages, from children to
adults. Made of seawater, which contains an abundance of purifying trace elements, the NASAL
SPRAY helps in secreting mucous and clearing the nasal passages. The fact that the nose acts
as a filter to routine dust- and germ-filled air makes it widely open to infection.
Formulation
• Seawater solution is rich in trace elements. Hypo-allergenic and isotonic in nature, it combats dryness
in the mucous membranes and clears the nasal passages. Micro-diffusion sprays ensure an even and
in-depth distribution of the seawater solution.
Directions for Use
2 sprays in each nostril, morning and night.
Especially recommended for nasal care in children, during the winter
months as well as on a year-round basis for people living in a dry
or polluted environment.

• Gently cleans naval cavities.


Active
effects • Makes clearing the nose easier.

Vitamin C +
Indication
Vitamin C helps overcome fatigue. A powerful antioxidant, it strengthens the immune system, prevents
and combats all types of viral and bacterial infections.
Formulation
• Vitamin C + Ginseng
Ginseng, rich in ginsenosides, acts as a general, long-term tonic on the body. It increases physical
and intellectual performance while stimulating the immune system. When associated with vitamin C,
it helps overcome general fatigue.
• Vitamin C + Guarana
Guarana contains large amounts of caffeine, which is powerful in stimulating the central
nervous system. The vitamin C + guarana combination have a rapid tonic effect, without
triggering over-stimulation or nervousness.
• Vitamin C + Kola
Kola, which is rich in xanthine (theobromine and caffein), stimulates the nervous system and muscles.
The tannin content enables the active ingredients to be time-released for long-term resistance,
enhanced by vitamin C.
• Vitamin C + Ginger
Ginger, rich in ginserols, is a hot and spicy-flavoured stimulant
plant for fatigue. Besides its strengthening and invigorating
properties, it is also known to have aphrodisiac qualities. It
works synergistically with vitamin C.

1 chewable tablet daily, preferably in the morning or at noontime.
The flavour of vitamin C+ has been specially developed to suit all taste buds.

Phytotherapy
Detoxification – Elimination
• Green tea leaves are known to facilitate weight loss. Their stimulating and diuretic properties help to
eliminate water contained in fatty tissues, and also combat the low energy levels that generally
accompany weight loss diets. The phenolic compounds in green tea reduce the absorption of
carbohydrates and dietary fat, thereby decreasing calorie intake.
• Ash tree leaves also help to combat water retention and stimulate the body’s elimination processes.
Weight loss
• The guarana shrub is native to the Amazon Basin, and its seeds are commonly used by the
region’s Guarani Indians. The caffeine it contains activates the “burning” of fat, allowing the
body to shed excess fat faster.
• Apples have diuretic and depurative qualities that promote the elimination of water and toxins.
The stimulating properties of guarana and apple fibre also help combat the low energy levels
that generally accompany weight loss diets.

“Orange peel” skin


• Pineapple contains bromelaine, a proteolytic enzyme capable of breaking the collagen that traps
fat, giving the bump appearance characteristic of cellulite,
promoting their elimination and decreasing tissue infiltration.
• Grape skins and seeds, which are high in flavonoids,
anthocyans and tannins, also help reduce cellulite
accumulations and improve local blood flow. Grape
mucilage act as fibre in the digestive tract, restricting
the absorption of simple sugars and lipids.

Digestion – Elimination
• Black radish root is a rich source of sulphur compounds, such as raphonine. A very effective
depurative, black radish promotes the elimination of waste and toxins. An excellent promoter
of liver drainage, it improves bile secretion and flow. It also facilitates bowel movement. Black
radish is useful throughout the year, and especially so during festive seasons when overeating
can be a problem. It can also be part of a detoxifying regime prior to starting a diet.

Urinary system
• Heather flowers are rich in the flavonoids and tannins that help to relieve the pain associated
with inflammation of the bladder or prostate. Arbutin has diuretic properties, and helps to
increase urine flow and eliminate harmful germs.
• Dandelion root is a well-known diuretic. Its properties as a
depurative help cleanse toxins from the body.
Urinary discomfort is common, and the regular use of this
heather/dandelion combination helps ensure a healthy urinary
tract.

Phytotherapy
Healthy circulation
• Horse chestnut bark and fruit are rich in flavonoids and esculosides, which act on venous tone. Horse
chestnut improves blood flow in the legs, enhancing circulation comfort.
• The saponosides and rutoside in butcher’s broom also help to relieve heaviness in the legs, as well
as other symptoms associated with poor circulation.
Anti-cholesterol
• The allicin found in garlic bulbs is widely known for its role in improving circulation and lowering blood
pressure and “bad” cholesterol levels.
• Olive leaves, which are high in flavonoids and oleuropesides, have a similar beneficial action. This garlic/olive
leaf combination is therefore useful in promoting healthy arteries, particularly for people who are prone to
high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol levels.

“Heaviness” in the legs


• Red vine leaves contain anthocyans, flavonoids and tannins that have a beneficial action on blood
circulation. Red vine leaves help strengthen vein walls and reduce permeability. They facilitate
blood return, thus helping to soothe feelings of heaviness
in the legs, swollen ankles and tired feet.

Joint support
• Devil's claw root is high in glucoiridoids, which are known to be beneficial in cases of joint pain.
It improves joint mobility and flexibility, and also helps to eliminate uric acid.
• Meadowsweet flower heads are rich in salicylic acid and flavonoids. They help relieve the
stiffness, painful movement and discomfort of joints.

Bone support
• Horsetail is one of the best-known plants known for restoring mineral levels, and a very rich
source of silica and mineral salts. It helps fortify and solidify bones, and is therefore very
useful during growth and for age-related decalcification.
• Nettles are also an excellent source of nutrients: vitamins (particularly B), minerals (e.g. iron,
silica, magnesium), trace elements (e.g. copper, zinc), essential amino acids and proteins.
This horsetail/nettle combination helps to improve the condition
of skin, hair and nails and maintain healthy bones.

Phytotherapy
Serenity
• The flavonoids and alkaloids in found in passionflowers have a calming effect in cases of
anxiety, stress and sleep disorders.
• The sedative effect of hawthorn is also well known. Its flowers are rich in flavonoids, such
as hyperoside and vitexin, which help normalize heart rhythm.
This passionflower/hawthorn combination helps decrease nervousness in adults and chil-
dren, and is useful for sleep disorders, anxiety and irritability.
Sleep
• Valerian root contains an essential oil and valepotriates that have a known calming and
sedative action. It promotes relaxation and a return to natural sleep patterns, without
creating dependence or drowsiness.
• The essential oil (myrcene) and humulone found in hops have
calming properties that help combat nervousness and insomnia.
Hops are effective in cases of agitation, and can act as a mood
regulator. The valerian/hops combination is therefore useful in
inducing natural, restful sleep.

Herbal remedies always have something new to teach us in the health field.
Our Laboratories constantly seek to provide you with the best in phytotherapy.
