Red Formula combines – in one, easy-to-use formulation – the sixteen most nutritionally-rich fruits, available the whole year round, and with all the fast sugars and superfluous calories removed. ‘Superfruits’ offer exceptional nutritional value because of their high antioxidant potency (measured by the ORAC index) and the veritable treasure-trove of rare phytonutrients they contain.
In particular, Red Formula provides :
• Acai juice :
this berry originates from the tropical forests of Brazil and contains higher concentrations of anthocyanins than red wine, as well as other phenolic compounds. Many health benefits are attributed to it by Brazilian traditional medicine.
• Goji juice :
this Chinese ‘national treasure’ contains a variety of carotenoids and specific polysaccharides that have polyvalent protective effects. Goji juice exceeds all other foods, when measured in Bovis units (a measure of a food’s energy quality).
• Aronia juice
, rich in anthocyanins with blood sugar-lowering benefits .
• Maqui juice :
this purple berry, from the Patagonian region of Chile, has three times more antioxidant potency than the Brazilian acai berry; it aids slimming by increasing base metabolism.
• Camu camu extract
, the fruit of a small Peruvian tree which contains thirty times more vitamin C than kiwi or acerola.
• Mangosteen extract
, an Asian tropical fruit rich in polyphenols and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory xanthones.
• Blueberry juice
, rich in eye-protective bioflavonoids, and raspberry juice
, rich in ellagic and gallic acids, and quercetin. Cranberry juice, rich in proanthocyanidins which help maintain a healthy urinary tract, and pomegranate juice, rich in cardiovascular-beneficial punicosides. Strawberry juice (for its flavonols and fisetin which mimic calorie restriction). Other, more familiar red berries and fruits work in synergy to boost the formulation’s effects and improve its taste.
Combining – or alternating - Red Formula with
Green Formula is particularly recommended, in order to obtain a similarly full spectrum as that provided in an optimal, fruit- and vegetable-rich diet. These two water-soluble formulations are designed either to provide a base for delicious, refreshing drinks, or to mix into a super-nutritious protein shake, to be drunk before or after exercise.
