Hormetic Factors


100% botanical cellular support

Nutritional hormesis is scientifically recognised as an adaptive process, whereby the intake of specific phytonutrients has shown support to cellular health and resistance. Similar to HIIT exercise and the Nordic tradition of sauna and ice bathing, this 100% bioactive botanical formulation works as a hormetic multi-system stimulus, raising levels of the transcription factor, Nrf2, to boost cellular protection while supporting mitochondrial function.

  • Naturally occurring vitamin C – typically around 14 mg.
  • Trans-resveratrol is a polyphenol that protects plants from external stress factors. It is highly-regarded as an anti-ageing compound, known for supporting the protection of skin, particularly from the sun’s damaging UVA light.
  • Turmeric root is naturally rich in curcumin, a compound known to activate the Nrf2 pathway that induces cellular protective processes.
  • Broccoli sprouts offer an array of protective nutritional compounds, including sulforaphane, a potent detoxifier.
  • Olive leaf contains a variety of immune and cardio-protective compounds, including the Nrf2 activating polyphenol, oleuropein.

Key botanicals found in Hormetic Factors

Turmeric Root

(Curcuma longa)

Turmeric is a well-used spice, particularly throughout the Asian continent. Rich in polyphenols it is known to optimise the performance of the detoxification enzymes, glutathione-s-transferases and glutathione reductase. This botanical wonder-herb is acknowledged for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Olive Leaf

(Olea europaea)

Olive leaf is known to exhibit anti-viral effects while helping balance intestinal microbial flora. For centuries, olive leaves have been used in the Mediterranean region as medicine due to their health benefitting properties. Olive leaf contains higher levels of polyphenols than those detected in the extra virgin olive oil and the olive fruit. Research suggests that olive leaf provides cardio-protective, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.

Lemon Fruit

(Citrus limonum)

Lemon provides many potent phenolic compounds, including the cell-protective phytonutrient, ferulic acid. Recognised for having photo-protective qualities, ferulic acid may help protect the skin from the damaging effects of ultraviolet (UVA) radiation.
