Hoy el 60% de la aportación energética viene de alimentos ricos en calorías y pobres en vitaminas y minerales. . .
La evolución de los modos de vida: la reducción del tiempo que se pasa cocinando las comidas desestructuradas, tomadas fuera de casa el picar entre comidas en constante aumento los platos delante de la tele la distribución casi exclusiva de la alimentación por los grandes almacenes
El uso de la tecnología de la Suspensión en Gel permite usar dosis más pequeñas de nutrientes, ya que se puede obtener una mayor absorción. La matriz soluble en agua, flexible y comestible evita la dificultad de tragar, fenómeno común en niños y en la población mayor.

Agel is promoting a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition
The right absorption The right ingredients The concept behind The right actions 3 targets
The right absorption Bioavailability Not every nutrient you swallow is absorbed by your body! Bioavailability means “the proportion of a nutrient or bioactive ingredient that was absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract”
The right absorption Bioavailability The ingredients on a label are in no way an indication of how much go into your bloodstream for use in your body!
Bioavailability of food supplements Nutrients entered the body via foods
Absorption of Nutrients While the actual length of the intestinal wall is about 4-5 meters the intestinal surface is folded into millions of absorptive units called “ villi”, increasing the total absorptive area of the small intestine to about 250 m²(size of a tennis court)
The vessels are separated from the intestinal lumen by a barrier known as the “mucosal barrier”: the purpose of this barrier is to selectively admit specific micro molecules , while inhibiting absorption of macro molecules. Absorption of Nutrients
This barrier possesses a slight negative charge , a property that either attracts or repels molecules with polar properties making them more or less bioavailable Absorption of Nutrients
Absorption occurs by one of three methods : - passive diffusion -active transport -facilitated active transport Absorption of Nutrients
Passive diffusion: Is simply the passage of molecules across the mucosal barrier until the concentration of the molecules reach osmotic balance on both sides of the membrane. This is the primary method used by water, small ions and glucose. Absorption of Nutrients
Active transport: The molecule is actively pumped across the mucosa. Absorption of Nutrients
. Facilitated active transport: A carrier, generally a protein, is required to convey the nutrients across the membrane for absorption. Carriers are required by many nutrients including minerals, peptides and lipids Absorption of Nutrients
How it works? The Guar Gum and the Xanthan Gum enhance nutrient availability by improving the environment in the gastrointestinal tract.
Guar Gum Also called “Guaran” is a Galactomannan. The hydrolyzed Guar Gum is included because of its ability 1/ to increase mineral absorption 2/ to maintain healthy villi functions 3/ To improve enzyme activity. 4/ To improve bowel function and fecal composition.
Xanthan Gum Xanthan Gum is best used for stabilizing and binding our gel nutritionals: Xanthan polysaccharides have the same strong water-binding capacities as Guar polysaccharides by its water attracting hydroxyl (-OH)groups. These hydroxyl groups are like “water-magnets” pulling in water from their surrounding These two water grabbing polysaccharides are the basis for creating hydrated micro-environments for nutritional ingredients
Gel create a large number of hydrated housing spaces for nutritional ingredients.
Nutritional vitamins, minerals and botanical ingredients become “housed” within the gel matrix and remain in a fully hydrated state..
Gel suspension Technology
After sufficient blending, the entire gel mixture contains “consistent” quantities of all ingredients . Therefore every gel packet is identical in nutritional quantities. In addition every sip from a gel packet contains the same quantities of active ingredients :”No shaking” “No mixing” are required!! .

Joint Flexibility Leading an active life requires that you can freely move without pain. In general ,from the age of 2 until about 40 years old ,we experience few limitations in our ability to work ;enjoy recreation, participate in sports, and climb stairs.
Joint Flexibility However ,as we age beyond 40,we may experience physical limitations; some are temporary; but some are chronic condition as arthritis
Joint Flexibility The body contains many joints that allow the body to move. Joint movement is dependent on muscle attachments, joint cartilage and synovial fluid
Joint Flexibility Synovial fluid is secreted by the joint: all moving machinery requires lubrication at the moving joint
Joint Flexibility Loss of cartilage leads to increased friction: increased inflammation, increased pain; reduced flexibility and finally to fusion of the two bones
Joint Flexibility . Arthritis cause chronic pain and immobility to almost 350 millions individuals worldwide .Arthritis limits the flexibility of the joints ,cause pain and limit mobility
Joint Flexibility The human body cannot work properly function without flexible joints to cushion the body in action and to articulate movements Therefore, the ideal solution to joint flexibility lies in the need to nourish and preserve the joint cartilage and synovial fluid of all joints
Oxidation is a process where oxygen chemically degrades biochemicals within our body Antioxidants fight against (anti) oxidation (Oxygene ) Oxidation= Oxygen
Oxidation Each time than energy is required (in fact permanently) a chemical reaction is produced in the mitochondria of the cell ,creating Energy AND free radicals : this phenomenon is called “oxidative stress”
An atom which lose one electron become a free radical Cardio vascular diseases and aging are both caused in part by damages created by exposure to oxygen radicals Free Radicals
Free Radicals are natural to biological life But free radical from foreign sources create a degenerative abundance
Foreign sources Cigarette smoke, Smog, exposure to pesticides, herbicides and petroleum ;inhalation of volatiles chemicals, stress…….
Body Antioxidants 2 kind of Antioxidants Enzymatic Antioxidants Dietary Antioxidants
Dietary antioxidants Exotic fruits have a high concentration of antioxidants :The highest concentration are colorful; flashy fruits( Catechins, polyphenols ,anthocyanins)
EXO stands for Exotic Antioxidant which means antioxidants extracted from fruits, berries and botanicals grown in “exotic” areas

Cofactors are molecules which allow enzymes to create metabolic reactions in order that other nutrients can make themselves available for utilization by the body. SYNERGY IN NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS GROWS IN PROPORTION TO THE NUMBER OF INGREDIENTS!
1/Calcium Citrate Can be taken on an empty stomach. 2/MCHA MCHA (Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite ) is derived from bovine and fosters both better absorption and actual reductions in radial bone loss than any other form of calcium. 3/ Calcium Aspartate Calcium Aspartate extends the Calcium absorption from the duodenum to the entire length of the small intestine and therefore achieves the absorption rate much superior to those of other Calcium products.

KEY WORDS:ENERGY - Ability to be enthusiastically engaged throughout your daily spectrum of activities. -Energy is derived from the food you eat. -Creating energy from the food you eat is the responsibility of a complex network of thousand of interdependent biochemical reactions within the body
OHM is a blend of micronutrients and herbs that boost energy conversion
OHM does not rely upon stimulants like caffeine - it is a B-vitamin based formula that acts as a coenzyme to facilitate the body’s own metabolic processes required to convert carbohydrates into energy.
OHM is ideal for pre-competition or a “half-time” boost.
KEY WORDS:FOCUS - Capacity to prioritize activities, concentrate your energies and creatively innovate. -Focus is generally considered as a state of mind: focus flow from the brain to the body - Focus is achieved through normal biochemical processes and proper nourishment
