From antioxidants to iron

Probiotics, minerals and other hardworking inhabitants of your body know Vindija's alphabet of health by heart. Learn it too and become a part of the Land of Health, in which you live healthily every day!

 

Antioxidants

Antioxidants are a group of different natural compounds that have the important role of protecting against the harmful effects of free radicals within your body. There are two sources of antioxidants – food and our own body that produces antioxidants with the help of vitamins and minerals.
A regular intake of different natural compounds has a positive effect on your health. Fruit, vegetables and wholegrain cereals contain numerous antioxidants that mostly work in synergy, by completing each other. 
 
Vindi Vital tomato – natural antioxidant

Tomatoes are among the richest sources of antioxidants, among which lycopene, giving this vegetable its recognizable red colour, is the strongest. Studies show that lycopene is absorbed into the blood better if it has been processed by cooking, for example in the form of tomato juice, than by consuming fresh tomatoes.

 

Bifidobacterium

Bifidobacterium is one of beneficial bacteria of lactic acid that are of great importance to your health. They are the largest group of bacteria in bowels during infancy. As we age, the ratio of bifidobacterium in our digestive system decreases. 
The consumption of fermented dairy products, like yoghurt that contains these ‘friendly’ bacteria, can improve your digestion and strengthen your immunity. It is especially recommended to take these probiotics after taking antibiotics, which have a negative effect on the intestinal microflora.

Bio versus eco

Healthy food, eco-, bio-, natural and organic products – recognizable labels you have probably seen a hundred times, but do you know what they really mean?

According to certain sources, due to the overused and uncontrolled use of the prefix ‘bio’, farmers who specialise in this kind of farming have decided to use the prefix ‘eco-’ or the word ‘organic’ to describe their products. Others believe that ‘bio’ and ‘biologic’ prevail in German and Romance languages, while the term ‘organic’ is most commonly used in English speaking countries.

In Croatia, according to the European norm from 1992 – CEE 2092, products that contain more than 95% of its content from organic production can bear the name ‘organic product’ and obtain the ECO label.
Organically grown products are different from others in terms of how they are grown. That process is based on following the natural cycle in the rhythm of the yearly seasons. That way, the products’ natural balance between minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids is ensured.
