Our Winter Mix (aka Leuco-activate) was so named because I first formulated it to boost my customers’ resistance to cold and ‘flu. We have since used it for general recovery from any illness, as well as preparation for – and recovery from – surgery.
The fact is, your immune system needs a high level of some essential nutrients* in order to “fire”. We have thoroughly researched these nutrients and have cobbled them together in one preparation. Emanuel Cheraskin, a noted nutritional researcher in the ’60s to ’80s, determined that a “sick white blood cell could only kill a third of a germ, whereas a healthy white blood cell could kill 13 germs”.
The nutrients that he used to achieve this effect are reflected in our formulation for the Winter Mix.
So, according to Cheraskin, your ability to overcome infection will be greatly enhanced by using this formula. But he goes on: white blood cells do more than just kill germs – they are also involved in assisting with cellular repair.
Not only that but ordinary cells also utilise these nutrients, where they stored in your mitochondria, according to Linus Pauling’s co-researcher, Dr Ewen Cameron . So much so, that just one of these nutrients is concentrated 50 times more in the mitochondria than normal blood concentration.
Linus Pauling discovered that Vitamin C was effective in helping to promote tumour death. The then future director of the Linus Pauling Institute, Dr Ewen Cameron, noted the mitochondrial storage of vitamin C as being 50 times greater in concentration than in blood*. He only discovered why Vitamin C was effective in preventing tumour invasiveness into fresh tissue when his pharmacist brother-in-law informed him of the similarity of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C – AA) to glucuronic acid (GA). The significance of the similarity was that the PHI** molecule became active when AA was substituted into the PHI peptide in place of GA.

**PHI (physiological hyaluronidase inhibitor) counters the enzyme that is produced by cancer cells that attacks collagen at the hyaluronic acid link, allowing cancer cells to penetrate new tissue, generating its lethal potential.
However, other research responding to Phil’s theory that cells need important enzyme nutrient co-factors in order to be able to successfully assimilate mitochondrial AA and support its activity at a cellular level has led to the ZinAc and Winter Mix formulation.
Another method to reduce cancer cell invasiveness, especially from metastatic cells, was brought to Australia by Rd Robert Buist***. This is called hydrolysed citrus pectin. we use citrus pectin in our own “mixed pectins”, that also possess other important health protective and preventive illness properties.
