  • A nutritional powerhouse from Brazil and one of the most nutritious foods in the world

    Our ACAI is Rainforest Grown!

    Acai: A nutritional powerhouse from Brazil

    • One of the most nutritious foods in the world
    • A powerful source of antioxidants to combat premature ageing
    • Helps promote cardiovascular and digestive health
    • Promotes weight loss
    • Rainforest grown

    What is Acai?

    The Acai berry grows on palm trees in the Amazon Rainforest. The berry resembles a giant, purple, blueberry. Despite its many benefits, you cannot eat the acai berry directly. The berries must be harvested fresh and processed into a pulp. In Brazil, Acai has exploded into the mainstream, spreading rapidly throughout the country. Some Brazilians freeze their Acai and mix it with Guarana syrup.

    How does Acai work?

    Acai is called a superfood for many reasons. The berry naturally contains huge amounts of Antioxidants, Vitamin B1, B2, B3, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Phosphorus, Calcium, Potassium, Fibre, Proteins, as well as good fatty acids.

    The incredible levels of antioxidants in Acai help you feel younger. Research has also shown that antioxidants can help regulate cholesterol levels in your body.

    Acai has two essential fatty acids known as Omega 6 (Linoleic acid) and Omega 9 (Oleic acid). Research shows that Omega 6 helps lower LDL, which is the cholesterol that harms your body, while Omega 9 fatty acids lower LDL and maintain HDL (good cholesterol) levels. Acai’s high levels of antioxidants also play a factor in maintenance of vascular cardiac system, which is important for better blood circulation.

    The dark purplish colour of the berry is due to the polyphenolic compounds present in the berry. One of the main compounds being researched is called anthocyanin. Anthocyanins are a group of Flavonoids widely distributed in plants and that give a reddish or purplish colour to fruits such as blackberries, grapes, and raspberries. The more research that is done on anthocyanins, the more benefits are found.

    Why take Acai?

    • Weight Loss: The Acai berry helps increase the body’s metabolism rate and helps you get rid of extra pounds by burning fat, thanks to its high content in fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, which are not produced by the body. Moreover, the Acai berry has the ability to control appetite thanks to its high fibre content, which satiates hunger. It also helps in the proper movement of food in the digestive tract. This actually helps eliminate excess food in the body, instead of converting it to fat.

    • Inflammation: Anthocyanins help neutralize enzymes that destroy connective tissue. Their antioxidant capacity prevents free radicals from damaging connective tissues and may help repair damaged proteins in the blood-vessel walls.

    • Nervous System: By preventing tyrosine nitration, the Anthocyanin properties in Acai may help protect against neurological diseases. The primary Anthocyanins in Acai known as Cyanidin-3-glucoside have been found to contribute to the reversal of age related neurological deficits.

    • Arteriosclerosis: Anthocyanins ability to counter oxidants make them a powerhouse in the fight against arteriosclerosis. Even in small amounts, Anthocyanins effectively guard against LDL oxidation. Anthocyanins protect the integrity of the endothelial cells that line blood vessel walls and help to maintain micro capillary integrity.

    • Diabetes: One of the serious diabetic complications is retinopathy, which in most cases can cause blindness. This condition occurs when the body attempts to repair leaking, damaged capillaries, but does so by producing to many abnormal proteins. The protection of Anthocyanins may help prevent these capillaries from leaking and assist in the prevention of abnormal protein proliferation.

    • Eye Health: The Acai berry’s anthocyanins may also help improve eyesight by numerous mechanisms. A recent Japanese study found that people taking 50mg of anthocyanins adapted better to the dark and had less eye fatigue than those in the placebo group.

  • Turmeric Extract: Inhibits Metabolic Inflammation

    • Antioxidant Protection
    • Provides Liver Support
    • Contains Detoxifying Properties

    Metabolic inflammation is like an inner fire you can’t see, but which can slowly compromise your health. Due to multiple stressors such as poor diet, lack of exercise, environmental toxins and daily stress, many people are affected without even knowing it. Yet, inflammation is a common and serious problem leading to altered body chemistry and possibly even future health challenges.

    What is Turmeric Extract?

    Turmeric has been used by Ayurvedic practitioners in India since 1900 B.C. Traders brought this powerful herb to China in 700 A.D. Since then it has been used traditionally around the world in many cultures for supporting health. It is now a staple in the diets of many cultures. After the turmeric root is processed to powder, it becomes a deep, orange-yellow and is often used to impart colour to mustard or fabric. Today, turmeric is the subject of much scientific research into its potential health benefits. During research, it was discovered that curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric. Studies show curcumin is responsible for most of the biological activity of turmeric, and is proactive in maintaining human health. BIOVEA® Turmeric Extract is standardized to 95% curcumin.

    BIOVEA® offers Turmeric Extract to quench the fire of metabolic inflammation, and support multiple body systems to maintain good health. Turmeric root is used extensively in Indian cuisine, and is held in high regard in Ayurvedic herbalism where it’s referred to as the “cleanser of the body.” Women in India often enjoy using turmeric for beauty purposes.

    What does Turmeric Extract do?

    BIOVEA® has identified twelve deep metabolic processes that work together to maintain normal functionality within the human body. Maintaining the balance of these metabolic processes is the foundation of the SystemiCare health model. Turmeric’s importance to our health can be demonstrated by the fact that it supports an amazing seven of the twelve metabolic systems – Cells/DNA, Inflammation Response, Liver/Detox, Cognition/Nerves, Immunity, Circulation and Antioxidant Defense.

    The Problem with Inflammation

    Inflammation is part of the body’s innate healing process. The body goes through a number of natural stages to handle external attacks as part of the immune process. In contrast, metabolic inflammation is the body’s natural response to unnatural conditions. Modern environmental conditions such as junk food, toxic chemicals, and sedentary or stressful lifestyles all impact the human body negatively and may alter human biochemistry. These conditions can trigger the inflammatory cascade, the precursor to metabolic inflammation. Unlike normal immune responses, the process of metabolic inflammation may lead to suboptimal health.

    Turmeric has demonstrated it supports a healthy inflammation response in a variety of scientific studies. The COX-2 enzymes are the primary instigators of the inflammatory cascade that leads to metabolic inflammation. These enzymes are activated when the phospholipids, especially phospholipase A-2, are stimulated by an inflammatory insult. Phospholipase A-2 then triggers the arachidonic acid pathway and begins producing COX-2 enzymes in cell membranes. When turmeric is present, it acts to inhibit the action of phospholipase A-2 and interrupts the escalation of the inflammatory cycle. Additionally, compounds called cytokines can also lead to inflammation. Cytokines are chemical messengers produced by the immune system to regulate defensive activity when they are stimulated. Constant stress can shift this system out of balance, resulting in inflammation. When turmeric is consumed, it begins to assist the body’s inhibition of cytokine activity to support healthy inflammation response.

    Antioxidant Protection

    Antioxidants are the selfless bodyguards of your cells. They donate their own electrons to stabilize free radicals in your body. After antioxidants donate electrons and neutralize free radicals, they become oxidized and spent. For this reason, they must be continually supplemented to maintain a stable antioxidant level and protect cellular integrity. Clinical studies have substantiated that the curcumin in turmeric exerts very powerful antioxidant effects. Curcumin achieves this by neutralizing free radicals, which can cause great damage to healthy cells and cell membranes. Extensive research also revealed that when turmeric is introduced to the inflammatory pathway, it inhibited the activation of the IKK enzyme, which in turn, activates Nuclear Factor kappa B(NF kB), notorious for inducing cellular inflammation.
