Both berries have an extremely high anthocyanin content, which are pigments with very high antioxidant activity. Antioxidants contain an extra oxygen molecule and are able to neutralize the free radical before it does any harm. The human body produces natural antioxidants to combat oxidative stress, inflammation and subsequent cell damage. However, the aging process and various environmental and life-style stressors create more free radicals than our bodies can naturally fight off.
A laboratory test known as ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is one standard for measuring antioxidant strength – açai and maqui berries score at the top of the scale.
We chose to include our organic açai and maqui berries not only due to their antioxidant qualities but in addition they are a good source of Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium and, most surprising of all, açai berries are also rich in healthy omega-3 fats.
Blueberries and raspberries show a wide variety of antioxidant nutrients, which seem to be responsible for their anti-inflammatory properties. The blueberry support of antioxidant defenses has been especially well documented with respect to the cardiovascular system. Additionally new research suggests that blueberries might turn out to be beneficial for improvement of memory whilst also fighting fatigue. Raspberries seem to boost the metabolism in our fat cells by increasing enzyme activity, oxygen consumption and heat production.
We added strawberries for their flavonoids – these are responsible for the colour and flavour of our Açai Berry clarity/smart energy™ drink. In addition the anthocyanin in strawberries adds to the antioxidant qualities of the berry drink.
Fermented papaya has been used for many years as a functional food in diets in Asia, in particular Japan and the Philippines. We have made this one of our main ingredients, as the papaya itself is a great source of antioxidants and multi-vitamins. The fermentation process simply provides this nutritious fruit with enhanced digestive qualities, thus allowing for its rapid absorption into our bodies.
Lemon & Lime
Lemon and lime are well known to us all and ours is straight from the source, not enhanced or tampered with, in any way. Thus they remain naturally rich in Vitamin C, which helps boost our immune system. Lemon is also one of the most alkaline foods. As our bodies tend to be come overly acidic from numerous environmental factors, lemon helps to balance and restore our bodies’ pH levels.
Besides its strong red colour we have picked beetroot due to its boosting propositions, which are thought to be related to nitrates turning into nitric oxide and therefore may enhance tolerance to high-intensity exercise. Beets are also high in immune-boosting Vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium and magnesium.
Green Coffee Beans
Our coffee beans are un-roasted raw coffee seeds and as such retain different natural properties than coffee beans that have been roasted. Like green tea, green coffee beans have strong antioxidant properties, such as are found in the polyphenol family. They also contain chlorogenic acid, an acid that has been shown to reduce blood pressure and suppress appetite.
The green tea in our products comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. It provides a natural source of caffeine, which stimulates the nervous system, heart and muscles by increasing the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. Combined with L-theanine, which is an amino acid compound found in green tea for its anti-anxiety effects on the nervous system - studies have shown a synergistic effect particularly potent at improving brain function. Green tea also contains antioxidants such as Epigallocatech Gallate (EGCG), which are thought to protect the heart and blood vessels.
Guarana & Grape Seed
The guarana seeds we are using are derived from the Guarana Paullinia Cupana plant. Guarana seeds are rich in natural caffeine and in its natural form, the caffeine is bound to the fiber of the guarana seed, thus the stimulating component is released more gradually. This allows for a more gentle, steady and longer lasting energy release, unlike the effects from synthetic caffeine which are commonly associated with many health problems typical of a cycle of dependency of a quick buzz and crash.
Grapes are the fruit of the vine. We added grape seed, as it is known to promote good circulation and reduce the symptoms of tired or heavy legs and tension. It is also thought that grape seed decreases stress on the eyes from glare, thus helping us work longer hours, in comfort. Grape seed was also added as a natural way to preserve the freshness of the other ingredients in the drink.
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol and is naturally found in various fruits such as pears, melons and grapes. It has many benefits such as not impacting the blood glucose levels, which makes it safe for diabetics. Equally erythritol does not break down the enamel of teeth and therefore does not form decay. In terms of calories, erythritol constitutes only 6% of the calories of sugar!
The vegetable sweetener used in clarity/smart energy™ is glycerin and it is used mainly as a sweetener. It metabolizes differently than sugar and does not cause a rise in blood sugar. We also chose glycerin, as there is some school of thought that it may help maintain the body hydration of people who exercise.
Our Vitamin Blend is a combination of nature identical Vitamins C, B3 and B6. These vitamins were chosen for their particular health benefits, which compliment our other natural ingredients. Vitamin C supports the body’s immune system and helps muscle recovery. Vitamin B3 in the form of Niacinamide is good for joint flexibility and can help reduce swelling and pain after exercise. Vitamin B6 was added as it helps lower blood pressure in people with high blood pressure and also keeps serotonin levels corrected. Our vitamin levels are quite high in order to help increase the energy boost and prevent the feeling of an “energy crash” and yet if not needed, are simply flushed out of the system naturally.
Tyrosine is an amino acid found naturally in our bodies and harvested from high-protein foods like avocados and beans or fish. Tyrosine is a forerunner of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which can raise energy levels, increase alertness and improve attention and mood. In addition, we have included L-Tyrosine as it is thought to counteract the decline of cognitive function in response to high levels of stress.
Glutamine is also an amino acid and is found naturally in the body. Glutamine is produced in the muscles and is distributed by the blood of the organs that are in need of it. We added L-Glutamine as it is thought to help gut function, the immune system and other essential processes, especially in times of stress and it also appears to be needed for normal brain function.
Citric Acid is a natural component found in citrus fruits such as lemon and lime. We have used it as our natural preservative and also as a key player in the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, which is involved in the conversion of carbohydrates, fat and protein into carbon dioxide and water to generate energy.
