Acai Super Berry Antioxidant is a powerful combination of nature's most
potent plant protectors. This formula offers protection against
everyday toxins: dietary, environmental, and chemical. It is indicated
for all individuals especially anyone with current health problems,
those under high amounts of stress, smokers or those exposed to
second-hand smoke, and anyone who lives or is exposed to a toxic
lifestyle. Free radicals are reactive substances produced by oxidation
that cause oxidative damage to the cells. Research suggests that free
radicals are involved in the formation of several degenerative diseases
associated with aging, including cancer, cardiovascular disease,
cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease, immune dysfunction,
cataracts, and macular degeneration. Aging and increased amounts of
oxidative stress cause the body's own defense system to become less
effective against free radical damage. Antioxidants have the capability
of stabilizing free radicals before they can react and cause harm to
Acai Berry (Euterpe oleraceae) is the fruit of a palm tree native to
South America. When ripe, the berries are dark purple and about the
size of a blueberry. Historically, Brazilians have used acai berries to
treat digestive disorders and skin conditions. The pulp and skin of the
acai are rich in anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, and other fatty
acids. Studies have shown that acai has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant,
and apoptotic (programmed cell death) effects a study published in the
Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, showed extracts of acai
berries triggered apoptosis in up to 86 percent of leukemia cells
(Garcinia magostana) is a plant native to Southeast Asia. Studies
reveal that xanthones from the fruit hulls of mangosteen have
antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory
properties. In one study mangosteen's xanthones significantly inhibited
the growth of leukemia cells. One xanthone in particular,
alpha-mangostin, showed complete inhibition of leukemia cells through
the induction of apoptosis (programmed cell death). Other studies
indicate xanthones from mangosteen inhibit the activities of COX-1 and
COX-2 enzymes, prevent oxidative damage of LDL cholesterol, have
cytotoxic effects on liver cancer cells, and are antiproliferative,
antioxidative, and apoptotic against breast cancer cells.
(Lycium barbarum) polysaccharides exhibit anti-tumorigenic,
immune-enhancing, and liver-protecting properties. Studies suggest that
Goji polysaccharides have positive effects when used with conventional
cancer treatments. A 1994 study done in China on patients with a
variety of cancers revealed that patients who were given Goji Berry
polysaccharides along with their conventional cancer treatment had a
40.9 percent response rate to the treatment, while patients who
received conventional treatment without Goji Berry supplement had only
a 16.1 percent response rate. Additionally, the Goji Berry-supplemented
patients experienced longer remissions and had a significant increase
in natural killer cell activity. Goji berries contain high levels of
Zeaxanthin, a carotenoid necessary for healthy vision that is present
in high amounts in the macula of the human eye. The Zeaxanthin in Goji
berries is naturally esterified zeaxanthin which has been proven to
cause a higher increase in plasma levels than the non-esterified form
contained in many supplements. When Goji berry was studied against two
other Chinese herbs on various measures of antioxidant activity, it
showed the most potent free-radical scavenging effects. The researchers
concluded that out of the three herbs tested, Goji was the best
antioxidant to promote healthy aging.
(Punica granatum) contains thousands of phytochemicals including
anthocyanins, ellagic acid derivatives, catechins and procyanidins,
flavonols, fatty acids, and sterols. Human studies show that
pomegranate polyphenols and their metabolites are readily absorbed into
tissues where they offer protection against elements of various
diseases. Pomegranate increases nitric oxide production in the
endothelial cells of the vascular system protecting against
cardiovascular disease. Studies show consumption of the juice benefits
patients with carotid artery stenosis, those with hypertension, and
those with coronary heart disease. Pomegranate has been heavily studied
in the treatment of prostate cancer. In one study when men with
aggressive prostate cancer were given pomegranate juice daily after
treatment by surgery or radiation, there were a four-fold prolonged
delay in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) doubling time, and the rate of
PSA rise was reduced by 50% over the course of just one year. Numerous
other studies demonstrate pomegranate inhibits inflammation, slows
cartilage loss in arthritis, improves sperm health, and increases the
overall antioxidant capacity of the blood.
