CogniGrape®: The First Grape Extract Shown to Boost Cognitive Performance in Healthy Older Adults
Sicily is known for producing many nutrient rich – and delicious – fruits and vegetables.
Part of this is due to the very rich soil in the areas surrounding Mt. Etna, the main volcano in the Mediterranean region.
In addition, eastern Sicily is considered an optimal area to grow grapes because large diurnal temperature fluctuations (hot days, cold nights) cause an intense red pigmentation in the grape flesh.
The juice obtained from these grapes contains a potent combination of the beneficial polyphenols – called proanthocyanidins and anthocyanins – shown to promote brain health.
Grapes grown at the base of Mt Etna are used to make Cognigrape®.
In 2017, a study published in the Frontiers in Pharmacology journal found that Cognigrape® may promote your cognitive function.
One feature that sets this study apart is the 111 participants were healthy older individuals.
Why is this relevant?
For starters, it is much harder to show a significant benefit to memory and brain function in just 12 weeks in healthy adults. Yet, this is exactly what those taking 250mg of Cognigrape® daily experienced.
Better yet, those taking Cognigrape® also experienced a more positive mood balance and increased ability to respond to everyday stressors.
Perhaps these are side benefits of being able to think clearer and remember better.
No doubt, when you’re less forgetful and more easily remember where you left your phone or car keys, you feel less stressed and better about yourself!
NeuroFactor™ Whole Coffee Fruit: Scientifically Backed BDNF Booster
Many people don’t realize coffee comes from a berry. The coffee you drink comes from the bean inside the fruit, but the bean represents only about 20% of the coffee berry.
The remaining 80% is a beautiful red colored flesh that’s chock full of beneficial nutrients. Yet the flesh is usually discarded and thrown away.
And as it turns out, the whole coffee fruit offers more than just the beans – particularly when it comes to brain health. Yes, nature put all of these parts together for a reason.
What does whole coffee fruit do?
It helps stimulate the production of the neuroprotein BDNF, or Brain-Derived Neurotropic Factor.
You know how your brain feels awake after exercise? In part, that’s the release of BDNF going to work.
Now with NeuroFactor™, you can help turn your brain on and lift your mood in the short term, while BDNF supports your cognitive health for the long term in the following ways:
- Helps existing neurons (brain cells) survive and thrive
- Promotes the growth of new neurons and synapses in the brain
- Supports the memory, learning and thinking functions
- Helps support mood by helping brain cells recover from the effects of stress
NeuroFactor™ is a patented, whole coffee fruit extract. Only premium grown Arabica coffee cherries are used from farms certified by Fairtrade International and Rainforest Alliance.
The coffee berries are hand-picked and immediately processed using the patented method to maximize nutritional potency.
Final testing and additional quality control checks are done at the company’s Illinois headquarters.
MegaNatural®-BP: The Patented and Tested Scientifically-Backed Seed Extract
One of the first modern doctors to utilize grapes for blood pressure health was John Harvey Kellogg, M.D., who also started the Kellogg cereal empire. According to published accounts, Dr. Kellogg used to prescribe 10 to 14 pounds of grapes daily to help blood pressure!
Fortunately, science has come a long way, and with MegaNatural®-BP, you now have a much more practical solution.
MegaNatural®-BP is a highly concentrated grape seed extract standardized to contain at least 90% polyphenols which provide the key blood pressure supporting compounds.
Each batch of MegaNatural®-BP is made in California from a special blend of unfermented wine grapes by Polyphenolics, a division of Constellation Brands – the world’s leading premium wine company.
The relationship between Polyphenolics and its parent company results in a uniquely sustainable model of agriculture wherein all parts of the grape are utilized. The grape juice is used to make wine and the unfermented grape seeds are used to manufacture MegaNatural®-BP.
The grape seeds are put through a patented hot-water based extraction process without any traces of toxic chemicals or solvents in the final ingredient.
Every lot of MegaNatural®-BP is rigorously tested for heavy metals, pesticides and microbiological contaminants to ensure purity and safety.
In published research studies, results indicate that MegaNatural®-BP can help you maintain healthy blood pressure levels.
Research has indicated that MegaNatural®-BP works by helping to stimulate nitric oxide which allows smooth muscle in blood vessels to relax, supporting healthy blood flow.
Why Capros® Is the Superior Amla – As Shown in 8 Human Clinical Studies
Amla is considered one of the most important medicinal berries in the Indian traditional system of medicine. Harvested from branches up to 40 feet above ground, Amla contains unique polyphenols that offer a multitude of health benefits.
The most notable of these polyphenols are Emblicanin A and Emblicanin B. Emblicanins are different from most other polyphenol antioxidants because they 1) have a cascading antioxidant effect and 2) resist becoming unwanted pro-oxidants.
By cascading effect, it means the antioxidant is not “one and done” when it comes to neutralizing free radicals. Instead, it recycles itself to help provide longer lasting protection against oxidative stress.
Even better, while some antioxidants exhibit pro-oxidant activity after they’ve neutralized a free radical, this is not an issue with Amla. Emblicanins do not have any pro-oxidant effects.
Despite its rich history in traditional medicine and strong nutritional profile, until recently very little scientific study had been conducted on Amla.
That changed several years ago when the makers of Capros® committed to spend millions of dollars on their patented Capros Amla ingredient.
Natreon, Inc., the maker of Capros®, was willing to make this investment because they knew they had the premier Amla ingredient.
In fact, Capros® delivers up to 2 times more of the key amla polyphenols than regular Amla extracts.
To achieve this, fresh Amla berries are picked at their peak potency to maximize polyphenol levels. Organic methods are used on the amla farm, and no pesticides or harmful chemicals are ever employed.
Immediately after pressing juice from the berries, the juice is stabilized so no key compounds are lost. No harmful solvents are used in the extraction process.
In addition to testing for potency, two independent labs test for microbial and heavy metals, ensuring that the Capros® powder is both potent and meets purity standards.
Capros® has been the subject of numerous human clinical studies showing remarkable potential for promoting heart and cardiovascular health and reducing oxidative stress.
CherryPURE®: Just Pure Tart Cherry With No Fillers!
For many years, tart cherries were known as an effective folk remedy to legions of people seeking joint help.
But folks only reported these benefits from tart cherries, not ordinary sweet cherries.
This led health researchers to ask “what is it about tart cherries that make them so different?”
As it turns out, researchers at Michigan State, the University of Michigan and other universities discovered that tart cherries offer a powerful package of phytonutrients unmatched by other fruits.
In particular, tart cherries uniquely contain relatively high amounts of two nutrients called anthocyanins 1 and 2. You are unlikely to find these two nutrients in blueberries, grapes, pomegranates, apples or most other berries.
And it’s because of anthocyanins 1 and 2, that tart cherries may provide joint and muscle benefits.
As with the other super fruit ingredients in TrueBerry7™, we try to give you the best. Each serving of TrueBerry7™ contains the tart cherry powder so pure, it’s trademarked as CherryPURE®.
The northern shorelines off of Lake Michigan produce the most potent tart cherries around – and that’s where the Montmorency tart cherries used to make CherryPURE® are grown.
But it takes more than a good farm to make CherryPURE®. After harvesting, the tart cherries are freeze dried and the water is removed without any additives, leaving you a rich and potent tart cherry powder.
This last part is important because many tart cherry products contain as much as 15% fillers, so you’re not getting pure tart cherry the way nature made it.
But thanks to CherryPURE®’s unique manufacturing process, fillers aren’t necessary. That means you get 100% pure tart cherry power, with all the nutrients and benefits you deserve.
Research indicates that taking 480mg of CherryPURE® may provide these benefits:
- Helps reduce muscle soreness from both strength and endurance exercise
- Helps support healthy inflammation response following intense exercise
- Helps enhance performance time during endurance exercise
So CherryPURE® may help your body recover faster from a long walk, a day of golf, gardening, hiking, and many other activities too!
Organic Eldermune®: Enhanced Immune Health Support from Elderberry and Prebiotic Fiber
More and more, we’re discovering that the immune system does much more than fight illness, it also helps to protect against stress that affects our physical and mental wellbeing, and works closely with the gut microbiome to promote good digestive and overall health.
That’s why for immune health support, we’ve added an organic elderberry juice extract, branded as ElderMune®, to TrueBerry7.
ElderMune® is an innovative ingredient combining organic elderberry juice (a 65:1concentrate) with the Sunfiber® organic prebiotic digestive fiber.
This novel combination can enhance the absorption of the elderberry immune fighting antioxidants in the digestive tract to promote better immune health.
Better yet, ElderMune® contains an exceptionally high amount of polyphenols (the compounds which provide health immune support) when compare to some other elderberry ingredients – making it a superior option.
As important, the polyphenols are protected during the drying process because high heat is not used.
With emerging research pointing to relationships between the body’s immune system and the health of other vital systems in the body. ElderMune® is the perfect complement to the six other top notch super fruit ingredients in TrueBerry7.
P40p®: Provides the Identical Antioxidant Profile as a Fresh Pomegranate
In case you’re not familiar with pomegranate, the pomegranate tree is native to Africa and the Middle East, and was one of the first fruits cultivated in the world.
Why has pomegranate become so popular?
It offers one of the highest antioxidant contents of any fruit in the world thanks to a unique group of polyphenols called punicosides.
In fact, studies show that punicosides are responsible for 90% of the antioxidant activity of pomegranate.
And we’ve captured most of this polyphenol activity for TrueBerry7™ by using a unique pomegranate ingredient called P40p®.
What makes P40p® special is each 100mg serving provides a near identical antioxidant profile as a fresh pomegranate – without the sugar, calories or any allergens.
P40p® is made from the whole pomegranate, including the rind and skin. And that means you get the full benefits of this amazing super fruit.
Each serving of P40p® contains a minimum of 40% punicosides!
Here’s the bottom line – each serving of TrueBerry7™ contains 100mg of P40p®, which is estimated to contain the antioxidant content of about 3.4 ounces of pomegranate juice.
This allows you to maximize potential benefits from this remarkable super fruit including helping to maintain healthy blood sugar, promoting cardiovascular health and supporting joint and muscle recovery after activity.
