Powerfully strong in antioxidants, acai berries and barley grass absorb free radicals that attack the body and contribute to the aging process. Eating foods high in antioxidants supports the body’s ability to combat these free radicals, as well as the damage they cause. Organic Acai also contains the highest concentration of anthocyanins out of any food. Anthocyanins are reputed as one of the most valuable antioxidants and have been shown to possibly eye health and cognitive function due to their fatty acid content. They are also known to support healthy capillaries and normalizing pressure in the eye.
Barley grass is a source of protein and includes all eight of the essential amino acids, as well as 12 of the remaining 16 non essential amino acids. Besides containing most vitamins, minerals and an excellent source of living chlorophyll, organic barley grass has three other special components which make it particularly valuable:Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) – The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of SOD in our system. Increased amounts of SOD supports the body in the repair process. Additionally SOD supports a healthy inflammation response.
P4D1 Enzyme – P4D1 has been found to do two things in the human body. It is the first known substance to actually stimulate repair of DNA molecules. It is possible that disease cells can be repaired with P4D1 so that when they reproduce they will actually produce good cells. P4D1 has also been shown in laboratory tests to eat the protein sheath off a mutated cell so that the white blood cells can attack and destroy them.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) – GAGs form an important component in the synovial fluid lubricant in body joints, and chondroitins which can be found in connective tissues, cartilage andtendons.
