Q: What scientific research and published information support Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods effectiveness?
A: Here is just some of the information available on Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods:
Fruits and vegetables provide critical phytonutrients, but Americans aren’t necessarily getting enough through diet.
American diets are critically lacking in fruits and vegetables. Most American’s aren’t getting the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables they need, per the Centers for Disease Control. You can read here about the center’s research and how experts say that 93 percent of American’s aren’t getting the recommended amount of vegetables in their diets.
According to the CDC, “Eating more fruits and vegetables adds nutrients to diets, reduces the risk for heart disease, stroke, and some cancers, and helps manage body weight when consumed in place of more energy-dense foods.”
A large study of more than 65,000 participants whose health was monitored for an average of 7.7 years found that participants who were ingesting 7+ servings of fruit and vegetables daily had a 42-percent less chance of dying from any disease (“all-cause mortality”) than those who had been ingesting less than one serving per day. You can read more about the study here.
A study known as the EPIC study, which stands for European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)-Heart study, tracked the health of more than 313,000 individuals over 8.4 years. It found that those eating at least 8 servings of fruits and vegetables had a 22-percent lower risk for fatal ischemic heart disease. You can read about the study here.
Numerous studies back the positive effects of the nutrients found in Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods.
Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli are the only foods that contain glucoraphanin, which is the stable precursor to sulforaphane, a potent detoxifier. “Broccoli-derived sulforaphane … more potently activates Nrf2 to induce the expression of a battery of cytoprotective genes,” according to an article published in Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity. You can read about the article here.
Nrf2 is considered the master regulator of the body’s cell defense system. Nrf2 turns on the body’s internal protective mechanisms in response to oxidative stress. It coordinates the expression of thousands of genes that can protect against stressors such as environmental toxins and carcinogens.
Each serving of in Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods has the same amount of sulforaphane potential as found in more than one serving of cooked broccoli.
Lutein is found in high amounts in spinach. High blood levels of lutein are related to improved cognition in healthy older adults. On the other hand, those with mild-cognitive impairment (MCI) as well as those with Alzheimer’s Disease have depleted levels of lutein. You can read more about it here.
Each serving of Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods has an amount of lutein comparable to two servings of fresh spinach.
Quercetin is the most common dietary flavonol (one of six different types of flavonoids). You can find it in high amounts in apples and onions, and in many fruits and vegetables in your diet.
Quercetin supplementation (albeit larger doses than what we have in this product) has been shown to lower waist circumference, lower postprandial systolic blood pressure and increase “good” HDL cholesterol, among other things. You can read more here.
Each serving of Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods has the same amount of quercetin as found in five apples. We’ve also added a Whole-Spectrum Apple Extract to include other important phytonutrients from apples.
Hesperidin is the primary flavonoid in oranges. Among other things, it is thought to be a potent antioxidant and anticancer agent. It has beneficial effects on blood pressure and healthy blood clotting, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Read more here.
Each serving of Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods has the same amount of hesperidin as found in one whole orange.
Hydroxytyrosol is a potent phytonutrient found in olives. It promotes heart health, improved circulation and a healthy brain. It has shown significant chemopreventive effects in at least five different cancer cell lines including leukemia, colon cancer, breast cancer, and liver cancer. Read about HT’s role in protecting against neurodegenerative diseases here.
Each serving of Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods has the same amount of hydroxytyrosol as found in five olives or 2-16 ounces of extra virgin olive oil.
Spectra is a unique, clinically tested combination of more than 30 fruit, superfruit, vegetable and herbal powders and extracts. Two published clinical trials have shown that Spectra significantly increases blood nitric oxide levels (64 percent), cellular oxygen consumption and mitochondrial oxygen consumption. At the same time, Spectra has been shown to significantly reduce the number of free radicals in the blood, mitochondrial free radical generation, cellular inflammatory response and the postprandial change in blood glucose elevation. You can read about the trials here and here.
Each serving of Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods has the same amount of “Whole Spectrum Protection” as found in each of the two clinical trials described above.
Resveratrol (or, more specifically, trans-resveratrol) is an anti-aging ingredient believed to play a role in the French Paradox. The French Paradox is a phenomenon where people in that region have a lower risk for heart disease, despite eating saturated fats and drinking wine regularly.
Resveratrol supplementation has been shown to significantly increase circulation (as determined by flow-mediated dilation; FMD), reduce the oxidative stress found in type 2 diabetics and significantly improve insulin sensitivity.
Each serving of Ultimate Nrf2 Superfoods has the same amount of trans-resveratrol as found in one liter of resveratrol-rich red wine.
