Yerba Mate and Yerba Mate Extract: A cultural phenomenon throughout South America. It contains compounds that keeps its users healthy and energetic. Swiss researchers have reported that Yerba maté may be beneficial as a weight loss supplement (Phytomedicine, 1999). A valuable source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids such as Vitamins A, C, E, B-1, B-2, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, magnesium, calcium, choline, iron, xanthine, and folic acid make Yerba maté more healthful than Green Tea.
Eleutherococcus root: Also known as Eleuthero root, Siberian ginseng, Ci Wu Jia, devil's bush, E. senticosus, Russian root, shigoka, taiga, thorny pepperbush, touch-me-not, wild pepper, Ussurian thorny pepperbush, taiga root. Eleuthero reduces the depletion of stress-reducing hormones, hormones which can counter the body's response to difficult situations: the adrenal glands react by releasing adrenaline and corticosteroids, this causes nervous exhaustion or physical fatigue. Extensive studies in Russia found it to improve vision, hearing, and to increase endurance including improving the ability to exercise. Test groups responded with marked reductions in susceptability to disease, including flu and bronchitis. It also provided enhanced recuperative response. Eleuthero has been shown to provide reductions in blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels.
Acai Berry Extract: The major benefits of the acai berry are thought to include its strong heart health benefits. The acai berry is known to be a rich source of compounds called anthocyanins. These anthocyanins are the same compounds thought to give red wine its health benefits, but acai berries may contain even higher concentrations of these healthy chemicals than wine, with none of the health risks associated with alcohol. The acai berry also is a rich source of protein and dietary fiber, in addition to high levels of both omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, thought to have a protective effect on the heart and cardiovascular system. The omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids contained in the acai berry may also play a role in lowering levels of cholesterol in the blood. In addition to these important benefits, the acai berry is thought to play a vital role in slowing down the aging process. In health food circles, the acai berry is known as one of the most powerful of the anti-aging superfoods. It is thought that this anti-aging effect is a combination of the high levels of anthocyanins and the strong antioxidant vitamin content the fruit contains. In fact, the acai berry is known to contain ten times as many antioxidant vitamins as grapes and twice as many as blueberries.
