All three berries contain Carotenoids, a group of antioxidant pigments that may play a major role in preventing cancer and heart disease. Carotenoids also increase blood sugar regulation and boosts your body’s immune system so it can fight bacteria, diseases, and viruses more easily.
Vitamin A & Zeaxanthin for Eyes (found in all 3 super fruits)
As you can see in this mix, there is a lot of Vitamin A, which is a fat soluble Vitamin and is essential for eye health. You can find Vitamin A from retinols (cod liver oil and dairy product) and carotenes (such as Beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and cryptoxanthin).
The importance of Vitamin A in vision is widely researched and backed by findings that this Vitamin is extremely important for eye sight and for being able to see in the dark. People with Vitamin A deficiency are more prone to night blindness and the ability to fight infections are also diminished. Although people rarely suffer from this deficiency in developed countries, it is said to affect 1/3 of children under the age of 5 in third world countries.
Zeaxanthin is another nutrient important for maintaining healthy eyes. It is obtained through food and dietary supplements and is responsible for protecting the retina from harmful blue light, which causes oxidative stress. According to the American Optometric Association, lutein and Zeaxanthin may reduce chronic eye diseases such as AMD (age related Macular Degeneration), irreversible eye condition that can eventually lead to blindness.
Of the 600 carotenoids found in nature, only 2 are highly deposited in the retina (lutein and Zeaxanthin). Unfortunately for us, our bodies do not produce these on their own and we must obtain them through food.
Our PowerMix contains 64% of daily recommended Vitamin A, 57,500 IU (International Units) of which are beta-carotene (which is also vital to eye health).
Vitamin A, B, C & Quercetin for Skin (found in all 3 super fruits)
While consuming Vitamin A won’t give you a boost right away or an “insta-lift”, NOT consuming enough Vitamin A could result in sagging skin and other issues. A healthy dose of Vitamin A could also help combat acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. Vitamin A is also important for skin REPAIR so it helps turn over those cells.
Quercetin is found in Mulberries and can prevent further wrinkles and fine lines. It is used in many beauty products and is most EFFECTIVE WHEN TAKEN ORALLY. Although many cosmetic companies tout it as a key ingredient, we know that is is MOST effective when taken orally.
Quercetin is both an anti-oxidant (fights and prevents oxidation of cells) and an anti-inflammatory (inflammation is harmful for skin and cells over the long run).
Biotin, a type of Vitamin B, is essential for building out the foundation of your skin such as the skin, hair, and nail cells. A deficiency in Biotin results in dermatitis, which is dry, flaky, itchy skin. Of the three super fruits in this mix, golden berries contain the most Vitamin B.
Vitamin C is essential for sun damage repair because it helps tissue repair itself. As you’re already aware, Vitamin C is also essential for boosting your immune system by combating colds and viruses. Our PowerMix contains 17% of your daily recommended Vitamin C intake.
Iron is responsible for maintaining immune and muscle strength. 70% of your body’s iron is found in hemoglobin (red blood cells) and is essential for transferring oxygen into your blood from your lungs to your heart. Iron protects against anemia (where your body does not have enough healthy red blood cells). Signs of Anemia are often fatigue, ulcers, and feeling weak. In some cases, it may even lead to various types of cancer.
Maintaining enough iron in the blood, especially for aging adults, may decrease the chances of infections and diminished immune responses.
Iron may also reduce fatigue after exercise (Maureen Williams, ND, Bastyr University) because it carries oxygen to other cells in the body and therefore plays an important role in energy production. Not enough iron and your body could feel more tired more easily and quickly.
Our PowerMix contains 22% of daily recommended Iron intake.
