VITALITY FACTORS IN 4GRAMS
AUTHENTIC SUPERFOODS CAN HAVE A DRAMATIC IMPACT ON YOUR HEALTH; however, today a lot of people are calling things Superfoods which are nothing more than dried up fruits and vegetables ground into a powder. One of the simplest explanation of a true SuperFood is you can live off it because it offers a complete array of vitamins, minerals, proteins (amino acids), antioxidants, enzymes, sometimes Omega 3s, and probiotics. SuperFoods are dense sources or nutrition, very potent, and nutritionally balanced.
ORGANIC BEE POLLEN is considered one of nature’s most complete and nourishing SuperFoods. It contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Bee-gathered pollens are rich in proteins, free amino acids, vitamins, B-Complex vitamins, and folic acid. This is one of nature's purest and most nutritional superfoods.
ORGANIC SPIRULINA is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and antioxidants that help protect your cells from damage. It contains B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid).
Spirulina supports immune system production of white blood cells in the bone marrow. These immune cells are critical for a healthy immune response.
ORGANIC CHLORELLA is packed with complete nutrition, and is often referred to as nature’s multivitamin. When the cell wall is cracked Chlorella unleashes Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, and E. This chlorophyll rich nutrient provides proteins (amino acids) and minerals. Research suggests that chlorella may also help support the health of the liver and the immune system. Our Organic Chlorella is non-GMO, and does not contain any animal products or animal-derived ingredients. Chorella is known for its chelation properties, helping the body to eliminate heavy metals absorbed through foods and the environment. It provides natural detoxification properties to help remove toxic build-up in tissues and organs.
ORGANIC CHIA SEEDS is also nicknamed “runners’ food” because runners used chia seeds as fuel to run long distances. It has been reported just 1 spoonful of chia could sustain them for 24 hours. Chia seeds contains many different phytochemicals, each with unique benefits, including myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol, which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties. Chia seeds have a high concentration of the plant-based omega-3 essential fatty acids. Up to 60 percent of the oil that is found in chia seeds is comprised of omega-3s. Chia is a “complete protein” – which means that it contains all nine essential amino acids, which is incredibly rare for a plant-based source of protein.
THE RISE of DARK BERRY ANTIOXIDANTS
You’ve probably heard the age-old saying, “the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice.” Well, new research shows that not only do these little, beautiful dark morsels of goodness taste great, but they are very healthy. Dark Berries provide two powerful antioxidants, anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins. Antioxidants are nutrients and enzymes that help repair and prevent damage to our cells caused by a process called oxidation. They are believed to play a role in preventing the development of some chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. They also give you energy and an overall sense of well-being.
BLACKBERRIES are a super berry for their antioxidant strength due to their high contents of phenolic compounds such as ellagic acid, tannins, ellagitannins, quercetin, gallic acid, anthocyanins, and cyanidins. Blackberries are noted for high contents of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folic acid, and the essential mineral manganese.
BLUEBERRIES provide anthocyanins that have demonstrated properties that extend well beyond inhibiting free radicals, while blueberry's active constituent (pterostilbene) promotes healthy lipid and glucose levels for those already within normal range. Even more exciting is that these blueberry constituents (pterostilbene and anthocyanins) may help protect DNA structure. CORE+ features the wild blueberry extract that provides the most active constituents found in this health-promoting fruit. They have been proven to alleviate cognitive decline and help maintain healthy blood flow via seveal mechanisms including healthy low-density (LDL) oxidation, normal platelet aggregation, and maintenance of endothelial function.
STRAWBERRIES are an excellent source of Vitamin C, and are rich in bioactive phenolic compounds including flavonoids and phenolic acid, such as hydorxycinnamic acids, ellagic acids, ellagtitannins, xavan-3-ols, xavonols, and anthocyanins.
WHOLE GRAPE EXTRACT is derived from French Red Wine Grapes and is formulated to isolate and provide the highest levels of standardized proanthocyanidins found in grape skins and seeds. These proanthocyanidins and flavonoids are rapidly absorbed and distributed throughout the body, helping to eliminate free radicals while supporting healthy collagen. This is of particular importance in protecting the underlying supporting structure of the skin. There are also studies that our Whole Grape Extract has numerous benefits in supporting healthy cardio-vascular function.
CRANBERRIES are a healthy source of antioxidants that support healthy aging and cardiovascular health. Cranberry extracts have also shown promise in the prevention of tooth decay, urinary disorders, diarrhea, diabetes, stomach aliments, and liver problems.
POMEGRANATE EXTRACT contains ellagitannin compounds such as Granatin B, and Punicalagin. Studies suggest that punicalagin and tannins are effective in reducing heat-disease risk factors by scavenging harmful free radicals found in the human body. It is a rich source of natural antioxidant compounds that help your body rid itself of free radicals, which form during digestion or after you're exposed to toxins. Over time, they can damage your cellular membranes and DNA, potentially raising your risk of chronic disorders that include atherosclerosis and heart disease. Several clinical studies suggest that pomegranate antioxidants can help improve cardiovascular function, according to experts at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Natural compounds in pomegranate extracts might also have anti-cancer properties, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center,. Natural pomegranate compounds, especially those called flavonols, might reduce inflammation, which is at least partially responsible for several disorders, including osteoarthritis and other inflammatory conditions.Blueberry extracts
STANDARDIZED GREEN TEA EXTRACT
In recent years, a multitude of positive studies have been published about the health benefits of green tea. The active "polyphenol" constituents of green tea have been found to possess remarkable biological activities that include inhibiting LDL oxidation and neuronal peroxidation, while maintaining healthy DNA structure.
4GRAMS green tea extract is standardized to provide 98% of the active polyphenols that scientists attribute to green tea's multiple health benefits. That's equivalent to drinking about four and a half cups of green tea per day. What's more, green tea powdered extracts have been shown to absorb 60% to 90% better into the bloodstream compared with drinking green tea itself.
4GRAMS green tea provide 45% ECGCs This is one of the more powerful compounds in green tea. It is the antioxidant called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which has been studied to treat various diseases and may be one of the main reasons green tea has such powerful medicinal properties. It is well-studied and proven to strengthen the immune system.
CORAL & SEAWEED NUTRIENTS FROM THE OCEANS
AQUAMIN IS ICELANDIC SEAWEED technically Red Algae seaweed. It is derived from 100% seaweed, which absorbs trace minerals from the surrounding seawater. This form of absorption, coupled with Icelandic Seaweed’s unique structure, results in a mineral rich product that is neutral tasting, free of chalky texture and easily absorbed by the human body. It provides a unique marine multi-mineral complex, which includes bio-active calcium, magnesium, and 72 trace minerals. Research indicates that this multi-mineral complex supports proper bone mineralization and helps to regulate key factors involved in the normal immune system response to typical joint usage. The porous honeycombed vegetative cell structure provides significant chemical benefits for human absorption over mined minerals.
OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS
ORGANIC FLAXSEEDS are rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid that may be helpful for heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), arthritis, and other health problems. Other omega-3 fatty acids include those found in fish oil, which are docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Mackerel, salmon, and walnuts are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
ORGANIC CHIA SEEDS are perhaps the most complete superfood on the planet including a complex Omega 3 profile. Seed from Salvia hispanica L. or more commonly known as chia is a traditional food in central and southern America. Currently, it is widely consumed for various health benefits especially in maintaining healthy serum lipid level. This effect is contributed by the presence of phenolic acid and omega 3/6 oil in the chia seed.
