What Is Viral Pro
ViralPro contains a potent antioxidant and common food preservative (BHT) that may help to support our natural defences. It also contains a unique blend of mushrooms.
Do not take this supplement if you have a virus or to treat a virus or any related condition without first consulting a medical professional.
ViralPro also contains a unique blend of 4 specific mushrooms.
Mushrooms have been used in traditional Asian cultures for thousands of years and may have various bioactive anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory compounds.
Shiitake mushrooms have a unique nutritional profile, rich in Copper, Pantothenic Acid, Selenium whilst also containing Riboflavin, niacin, zinc, and manganese that all help contribute towards Shiitake’s antioxidant properties.Shiitake also contains lentinan.
Turkey Tail Mushroom
Turkey Tail Mushrooms are believed to contain a vast array of antioxidants, including over 35 different phenolic compounds in addition to quercetin and baicalein flavonoids.
Also found in Turkey Tail are Krestin (PSK) and Polysaccharide Peptide (PSP).
Reishi Mushrooms (Ganoderma lucidum) has a long history for their wide uses.
In-vivo testing, researchers have found that the Gypsy Mushroom (Rozites Caperata) contains a chemical, suggested to be composed of a unique peptide sequence.
Used since the 1940s in food preparation, BHT, or butylated hydroxytoluene is an antioxidant and preservative, used to prevent oils and fats from spoiling and going rancid. If you’ve ever wondered why the cereal you’ve had in the back of the cupboard for months is still good, BHT may have had something to do with it.
Since BHT’s discovery, an enormous number of uses have been found for this amazing preservative. It can be present in everything from food to cosmetics, even jet fuel, but more recently, in powerful antioxidant supplements as well.
Its primary mechanism is the prevention of autoxidation, a free radical generating process caused by oxygen attacking unsaturated organic compounds such as fats. By preventing autoxidation and the production of free radicals, BHT keeps compounds stable for longer, preventing their breakdown and associated decay.
One of the major questions around BHT’s use is it's safety. You should always consult your doctor or medical professional before taking BHT or any supplement.
The few studies that have shown significant negative effects have tended to use very high dosage, far beyond what any normal person would consume.
History of BHT
Much as BHT is capable of preventing autoxidation in oils present in the foods we consume and the products we use, it also may be able to support the body in regulating the damage caused by autoxidation.
Oxidation - Not Great For The Immune System
Oxidation is a common chemical process you can see all around you. When a cut apple turns brown, a steel pipe becomes rusty, or an old copper coin develops a furry green surface, these are all the products of oxidation. But did you know that the same process occurs inside your body?
Oxidation is what occurs when substances interact in a way that results in the loss of electrons, such as when oxygen reacts with iron to create iron oxide or rust. While this is not always a damaging process and is in many cases essential to normal body function, too much oxidation may tip things out of balance.
This is because these electron-losing reactions between substances may cause the release of free radicals, which may be a burden over time.
Antioxidants and Oxidation
Antioxidants are special sorts of molecules that inhibit the oxidation of other molecules. They do this by terminating free radical intermediaries and inhibiting oxidative reactions, generally by being oxidized themselves.
