Provita pays homage to the age-old traditions and wisdom passed down through generations, offering a holistic approach to healing. Grounded in time-honored principles, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) places unwavering trust in the innate power of nature, and the human body. It stands as a testament to the enduring efficacy of remedies and practices refined over millennia.
The resurgence of 'back to basics' has gained significant momentum, particularly in recent years.
With the increased awareness over respiratory viruses and immune system function in recent years, individuals are rediscovering the profound wisdom of our ancestors to help reinforce natural immunity.
This resurgence has led us to craft ProteniX, a natural remedy for common colds and flu, harnessing the unique synergy of Traditional Chinese medicine ingredients.
Star anise (Illicium verum) is a vital Chinese medicinal herb with actions of dispelling cold and regulating the flow of Qi (vital energy). Also used as a spice, Star anise is rich in Shikimic acid, a natural organic compound and one of the most widely studied molecules in the context of its antiviral effects. Shikimic acid is also an intermediary model for the production of drugs effective against influenza virus.
Fact: Star Anise extracts are rich in phenolic antioxidants known to promote immunity to foreign pathogens by stimulating immune cell polyphenol receptors to activate signaling pathways for initiating immune response.
Pine needle oil (Pinus sylvestris) is an essential oil rich in monoterpene and diterpene hydrocarbons. Scientific evidence now shows monoterpenes have good anti-viral properties, and diterpenes have antimicrobial properties. Terpenes have a wide range of medicinal uses among which antiplasmodial (antimalarial) activity is notable. The mechanism of action is the disruption of the multiprotein complex that enables malaria-causing parasites to infect and replicate in red blood cells.
Fact: Pine needles also contain Shikimic acid. Shikimic acid is a primary progenitor of the pharmaceutical anti influenza drug Tamiflu. It is a potent antiviral medicine used to address and prevent influenza A and influenza B. (1) With ProteniX you avoid the other, more harmful ingredients in a pharmaceutical drug - instead only consuming all natural ingredients.
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), a herb with a long history in traditional medicine, complements the action of Star Anise in our formula. Its anti-inflammatory properties have been harnessed for centuries to alleviate respiratory discomfort associated with cold and flu. This extract helps soothe sore throats and reduce coughing, providing patients with much-needed relief
Fact: Fenugreek seeds contain compounds such as alkaloids, flavonoids, and saponins that have demonstrated immune-boosting properties. They are known to possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, which may contribute to overall immune support. (2)
