The Organic Apple Powder Extract that we provide meets all the
nutraceutical benefits of Guarana along with the advantages
of a product of the highest quality and purity.
Organic Apple Powder Extract of The Green Labs LLC. is a powder rich in phytonutrients made from dehydrated apple juice concentrate without any carrier added.
Organic Apple Powder Extract contains beneficial phytochemicals from apples, such as quercetin, chlorogenic acid, catechins, phloridzin, and apple pectin.
Organic Apple Powder Extract is obtained from cultivated apples in the best soils of Brazil. It is manufactured preserving the healthy phytochemicals of apples.
Apples, a rich source of phytochemicals and pectin fiber, are one of the most widely consumed fruits in the United States. It is considered that the daily consumption of apples provides great health benefits. Apples, compared to other fruits, contain a high level of flavonoids and polyphenols recognized for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Several studies have associated apple intake with maintaining health and a reduced risk of developing various degenerative diseases.
Recent studies in animal models have suggested a synergistic interaction between apple polyphenols and pectin, a soluble fiber. Apples can boost the beneficial microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract due proportion of apple polyphenols can escape absorption in the small intestine, and together with non-digestible polysaccharides reach the colon, where they can serve as substrates for bacterial fermentation.
The wonderful properties of apples come from the following compounds:
Pectin is a natural fiber contained in certain fruit and vegetable, particularly apples. Many health benefits are associated with pectin; they including supplies soluble fiber, lowering blood pressure, protects against metabolic syndrome, lowering glucose levels, lowering bad cholesterol levels, regulating the intestinal environment.
Apples contain phytochemicals including quercetin, chlorogenic acid, catechin, epicatechin, phloridzin, procyanidins, among others. The high antioxidant capacity of these compounds has been intensively investigated due to their potential beneficial effects on health.
Phloridzin, one of the dihydrochalcones typically contained in apples, is a phytochemical inhibitor specific and competitive of sodium/glucose cotransporters in the intestine (SGLT1) and kidney (SGLT2). Studies in vivo have shown the beneficial effect of this compound through significant reduction of blood glucose levels and improve dyslipidemia in diabetic rats.
Quercetin, a flavonoid present in a wide variety of vegetables, is also found in many fruits, including apples. This flavonoid has been researched for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that potentially protect against degenerative diseases.
Catechins belong flavanols group, are secondary plant metabolites found in apples, green tea, blackberries, red wine, pears, dark chocolate, and cherries have many important physiological activities. Clinical studies have shown their anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects, including cardioprotective activity.
Chlorogenic acids, other phytochemicals found in apples, are cinnamic acid derivatives, and represent an abundant group of polyphenols with biological effects mostly related to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities.
