"The strength of our immune system determines our ability to resist
infectious micro-organisms and cancer. A compromised immune system affects
the speed and effectiveness to mount an immune response, leading to increased
susceptibility to infectious disease, both bacterial and viral. It also
undermines the immune system's ability to detect and eradicate cancerous
cells. In a compromised immune system, poor integration of all of its
components may lead to immunological disorders such as allergies and chronic
autoimmune diseases. However, we know that carotenoids can boost immunity.
The problem is people just aren't getting enough from their diet. The
biggest advantage of new Carotenoid Complex is that it delivers a broad
range of carotenoids as found in fruits and vegetables with proven bioavailability.
Additionally, Carotenoid Complex is far superior to other carotenoid products,
and has four distinct advantages. First, it delivers a broad range of
carotenoids. Secondly, Carotenoid Complex is highly bioavailable. Thirdly,
Carotenoid Complex delivers carotenoids from fruits and vegetables that
are part of the human diet. Last, and most importantly, Carotenoid Complex
is the only supplement that has been shown to enhance indicators of immune
"Cancer is a protein foreign to the body. However, the immune
system cannot always recognize cancer as a foreign protein. The
cancer cells 'hide' in the body, thereby giving the cancer cells
time to proliferate throughout the system. Supplementation of antioxidants,
such as those in Carotenoid Complex, can strengthen the immune system.
As carotenoids boost the body's ability to identify cancer cells,
more natural killer cells are produced. The body then sends the
natural killer cells to the cancer site. Because Carotenoid Complex
strengthens the immune function, it helps the body prevent cancer."

"The immune system recognizes viruses and bacteria as foreign
material and destroys them. It also destroys cells that have been
invaded by viruses and may even be able to recognize and destroy
certain tumor cells. Supplementation with Carotenoid Complex enhances
immune function by strengthening the body's natural defense system,
a type of white blood cells called natural killer cells. A study
by USDA researchers measured a 20% increase in natural killer cells
after 20 days of supplementation. A well-functioning immune system
appears to be an individual's best defense against all diseases
and the best assurance of a long, healthy life."
"Carotenoids have been getting more and more scientific confirmation
of their importance in enhancing and maintaining youthful health,
vitality and functions of the body. The advances in our NutriMax
extraction technology have allowed us to set a very high new standard
for carotenoid diversity and protective power. In addition to being
a proven, powerful immune booster, Carotenoid Complex is now the
strongest whole-food antioxidant supplement on the market."

"We are recognizing, more and more, that maintenance of human
health is best accomplished by prevention of disease, rather than
disease treatment. As we learn more about the optimal functioning
of the body, it is apparent that oxidation is a major threat in
the development of many diseases. Continual use of Carotenoid Complex,
in combination with an appropriate exercise regimen, can be strong
factors in protection against the effects of aging and chronic diseases,
such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. The Scientific
Advisory Board carefully developed Carotenoid Complex, with thorough
scientific planning; it is supported by clinical research that shows
its effectiveness in humans. Additionally, the new Carotenoid Complex
is based on the carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables with the known
ability to provide antioxidant protection. Moreover, research has
shown Carotenoid Complex to be readily absorbed and available to
the human body. With this product, GNLD has made available another
nutritional supplement which effectively supports healthy lifestyles."
"It's amazing that Carotenoid Complex is still the only full-spectrum
food-based carotenoid supplement on the market, especially since
the research on the health benefits of carotenoids are being widely
celebrated. One of the advantages of new Carotenoid Complex is that
each capsule contains standardized extracts of a wide variety of
carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables, so it is possible to put guaranteed amounts of the different carotenoids on the label.
However, one of the most interesting features of new Carotenoid
Complex is that tests have shown that the total antioxidant capacity
of the new capsule is 8 times greater than the previous formula!
This is important, as our immune systems are our best defense against
all types of aggressions from our environment. If our immune system
is working at its best, then our body is better prepared to defend
itself against these aggressions. It has been shown in several studies
that carotenoids help give this much-needed boost. Full of a broad-spectrum
of carotenoids, new Carotenoid Complex is the best supplement you
can choose to help boost your immune system."

"Plant pigments in fruits and vegetables act as antioxidants
to provide protection against diseases of aging. Eating five to
nine servings of fruits and vegetables daily is required for protection.
But a recent survey showed that 90% of Americans do not meet this
requirement, and only about 3% eat the recommended dietary allowances
for all vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Supplementation
is the most convenient and effective way to compensate for an inadequate
diet. GNLD's Carotenoid Complex utilizes advanced technologies that
make it feasible to separate, extract, concentrate and preserve
phytonutrients in biologically active forms. Carotenoid Complex
offers a prudent step toward prevention of many diseases."
