Why choose Syntifica P4-MAX?
Syntifica P4-Max contains a rich blend of powerful antioxidants & polyphenols
The four potent natural ingredients have been formulated in our laboratory at Knight Scientific in such a way as to maximise the antioxidant activity of the mixture and design positive synergy into the formulation. What this means is that each mg of P4-MAX, as a complete entity, delivers more
ABEL®-RAC units per mg than the sum of the ABEL®-RAC mg scores of its constituent parts.
Synergy between the different ingredients can be quantified and used to reproduce an identical
product batch to batch.
Our method of formulation requires us to quantify the activity of each ingredient separately and
adjust the formulation for each new batch. This rigorous approach enables us to reproduce the
efficacy of the product perfectly batch to batch and ensure that the body is able to utilise the
mixture in repeatable and predictable ways.
ABEL®- RAC Explained
The ABEL®- RAC (Relative Antioxidant Capacity) scale is the most accurate way to measure
and compare ingredients and finished products for their ability to withstand attack by a range
of different kinds of free radicals and other highly reactive oxidants. ABEL®- RAC measures the
way the active ingredients in these four plant extracts work, not just the amount of particular
active ingredients (which we also measure) that are in the product. It improves on older testing
methods that only give an indication of the strength. The ABEL® RAC score shows us exactly
how strong every milligram of P4-MAX is. We use this quality system to guarantee our
ingredients meet the highest quality standards and to ensure that every box of P4-MAX
provides the same level of efficacy.
P4-MAX contains ABEL®-RAC score 400,000 units/mg at time of manufacture
(Extracts of: Green tea,
Grape seed, Pomegranate and Pine bark),
capsule shell - Oxi-Zeal™ (Pullulan).
Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
Directions for use:
1 capsule with food for daily maintenance
and 2-4 capsules per day when extra
immune support is required.

SCIENCE BEHIND P4-MAX
Knight Scientific Limited (www.knightscientific.com) is recognised all over the world as a leader in the measurement of oxidative stress and for its accurate unique methods and test kits for measuring the antioxidant activity of natural products and the specific ingredients used in their formulation.
What is P4-Max?
P4-Max is a dietary supplement that is sold under a number of brands: ABEL®-Max™, Sytifica-P4-Max and One Nutrition P4-Max has been developed exclusively, standardised and improved by Knight Scientific Limited in our laboratories in the UK over a number of years.
P4-Max- Whats in it!
P4-Max is a mixture of four specific natural plant extracts rich in polyphenols and with very high antioxidant activity. The four potent natural ingredients: grapeseed, green tea from decaffeinated tea, pomegranate and pine bark extracts
P4-MAX has been formulated in our laboratory in such a way as to maximise the antioxidant activity of the mixture and design positive synergy into the formulation. What this means is that each mg of P4-MAX, as a complete entity, delivers more ABEL®-RAC units per mg than the sum of the ABEL®-RAC mg scores of its constituent parts. Synergy between the different ingredients can be quantified and used to reproduce an identical product batch to batch.
Knight Scientific's Method of Formulation
Our method of formulation requires us to quantify the activity of each ingredient separately and adjust the formulation each time a new batch is manufactured. Just reproducing a previous formula but with new natural ingredients, even from the same supplier, will not work as natural products vary greatly. To obtain a minimum ABEL®-RAC score and positive synergy, that is when the sum of the individual ingredients in the formulation produces a greater ABEL®-RAC score per mg than predicted by the sum of the individual ABEL®-RAC scores of the ingredients in the formulation requires extensive testing each time a new batch of supplement is made. In addition, this rigorous approach enables us to reproduce the efficacy of the product perfectly batch to batch and ensure that the body is able to utilise the mixture in repeatable and predictable ways.

Antioxidant Activity and ABEL®-RAC Explained
Antioxidant activity is a general term used to describe the ability a material has to neutralise the highly reactive oxidising species (ROS) which are derived from oxygen. ROS are produced in the body under different conditions and also are produced by cells of our immune system which become overactive during infections and inflammation. They are even produced by exposure to UV light as well as water and airborne pollutants from the environment. Excessive production of ROS with insufficient antioxidants to neutralise them leads to oxidative stress with concomitant damage to cells and cellular components such as DNA, RNA and cell membranes as well as attacking enzymes and other proteins. These ROS are sometimes called free radicals but while some ROS are free radicals (molecules with unpaired electrons in our orbitals) others such as hydrogen peroxide, peroxynitrite and singlet oxygen are non-radical oxidants.
