Quintessence™ is primarily for individuals
- Who want a product that promotes the normal detoxification of heavy metals by the body
- With elevated stomach acidity
- Who live performance-demanding lifestyles
Quintessence™ is a proprietary product made from a concentrated extract of a particular variety of alfalfa. It is a rich source of beta-carotene with the recommended daily dose of three capsules providing close to 50% of your RDI for Vitamin A. Quintessence™ is one of the most concentrated natural foods on the market. It is also rich in the purest form of highly bio-active enzymes, vitamins, carotenoids, amino acids, fatty acids and other functional macro and micro nutrients.
Quintessence™ is shown to have a range of benefits, the most significant being its potential to enhance your body’s normal detoxification mechanisms for heavy metals. With fish consumption around the world on the increase, with concern about associated ingestion of mercury and with cadmium, lead and aluminium further contributing to a significant toxic load, cleansing the blood of heavy metals is a health priority. The high concentration of chlorophyll in Quintessence™ aids in purifying your bloodstream and tissues. It also thickens and strengthens cell walls, promoting healthy cellular function. This means cells are better able to deal with the toxins that accumulate in your body due to fatigue, emotional tension, pollution and chemically-treated and processed foods. In addition, chlorophyll in Quintessence™ is one of the most effective, natural, body deodorisers known and it may well reduce or eliminate your need for chemical deodorants.
Quintessence™ is a rich source of biologically-active functional natural compounds which:
- Detoxify blood and remove free radicals*
- Help cells to resist stress*
- Help balance protein and energy metabolism*
- Support skin health*
Quintessence™ can be beneficial if you have a performance-demanding lifestyle - providing you with macro- and micro-nutrients to increase your body's bio-energy and amino acid pools. The natural components of herbal extracts show anti-oxidative properties (cysteine, methionine, calcium pantothenate, vitamin E, beta-carotene, zinc and others), minimise lipid oxidation and cellular damage, (thereby preventing premature aging) and promote healthy cardiovascular function.

Quintessence™ is a rich source of beta-carotene which acts as a powerful anti-oxidant, stimulates digestion and has reported anti-stress effects. It is of value if you are looking for a supplement to support healthy gastrointestinal function. Quintessence™ provides vital alkalising benefits in the case of hyperacidity by controlling the flow of hydrochloric acid to the stomach and supporting the action of the gastric enzyme - pepsin. Foods also contain different levels of acid or alkaline content in their own right. But what determines the pH condition in the body is whether the food is acid or alkaline-forming after being digested. From a biochemistry perspective, it is the levels of inorganic matter in food (sulphur, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium) that determines its impact on the acidity or alkalinity of your body fluids. Choosing foods according to whether they are acid forming or alkali forming can have a major impact on your ability to heal and maintain health. Alfalfa is one of the most potent alkalising foods and Quintessence provides a highly concentrated form of Alfalfa.
The effective oral dosage of Quintessence™ should be determined individually in consultation with your healthcare professional. Each desired therapeutic effect combined with your individual biological makeup requires a specific dose. However as a general rule we recommend:
- For adults – one capsule in the morning and two capsules in the evening, half an hour before meals.
- For individuals weighing more than 85kg - two capsules in the morning and three capsules in the evening.
"I have been trying to detox and address my Irritable Bowel Syndrome gently and naturally for a long time now. After trying various juices, powders and pills – usually all at the same time – I am overjoyed at the rapid results of Quintessence after only a few weeks. My skin has cleared up, my digestive and IBS problems have virtually disappeared. And it is so simple just taking one capsule!"
