No 7 Systemic Booster is Back on the Shelf: Fresh, Potent, and Beautiful as Ever
We have been in love with No 7 Systemic Booster from the moment we sat down with our scientists to create a product that gently but powerfully nudges different systems and organs in the body toward health.
We utilize the Hormesis concept - of small, potent doses of specific polyphenols that create a stimulatory, low response, to strengthen and enliven the body.
The hormetic effect is an adaptive response to small dosages, and traditionally to some toxic environmental agent, that slowly strengthen the body and builds immunity. So in small dosages the body adapts and builds resistance and in high dosages it's a toxic effect (Mattson, 2008).
This biological mechanism is true from plants to humans.
In fact, many scientists believe that hormesis is an evolutionary adaptive response that helps our body to select strategies that are necessary for wellbeing, and of course, survival (Calabrese & Agathokleous, 2022).
So far so good. But how do we utilize this hormetic effect with No 7 Systemic Booster?
Phytonutrients in small dosage also create a hormetic response (Mattson, 2008), a biological plasticity, helping cells to change, adjust, and respond - in other words, survive and even thrive (Sommer, 2020).
Small dosage of polyphenols from fruits and vegetables are shown to activate the adaptive stress response signaling pathways, increasing the production of cytoprotective proteins including phase 2 enzymes, antioxidant enzymes, heat-shock proteins and more, and again, this adaptive response activates the body toward health (Mattson, 2008).
Hormesis is indeed a fascinating concept that has been in fact researched since the 16th century and to a Swiss chemist physician called Paracelsus (Mattson, 2008).
The No 7 Systemic Booster acts gently in the body with its hormetic effect and at the same time, it is powerful, because hormesis is all about shifting the body into adaptation to survive, to rebuild, to re-harmonize and recalibrate.
