Weight loss management
Coffee is arguably one of the most popular beverages worldwide, with various health benefits. Due to its biological activity and dietary polyphenols, it functions as a strong weight reduction supplement. It also works as a cardiovascular health protection with chlorogenic acid as a major component.
Even though the chlorogenic acid varies according to bean quality, scientific studies indicate weight loss promotion by attenuating the absorption of glucose from the small intestine. Since the chlorogenic acid helps limit the glucose in general circulation, low fat deposition in adipose tissue can be achieved and glucose no longer functions as a primary energy source.
Chlorella – prophylaxis by nature
The chlorella alga has gained in popularity over the last 50 years. It has helped researchers to fully understand the process of photosynthesis, and dieticians have discovered it contains more than 50% protein in its dried biomass.
Today it is widely used as a key ingredient in dietary supplements for the cosmetics and health industry, as well as food for larvae. Chlorella’s benefits include its ability to lower overall blood pressure and can be used as a supplement during pregnancy. It is available in tablets as well as powder for ease of consumption.
Bromelain – optimum health by digestive enzymes
Bromelain is considered an ayuverdic medicine and has an all-important role in maintaining digestive health. It is a mixture of proteolytic enzymes, which are very versatile as digestive enzymes and therefore also protect cardiovascular health. Research has also shown that it can treat inflammation and breathing difficulties, if used as a treatment.
Spirulina food supplement
Originally harvested by the Aztecs from brackish lakes, spirulina has become one of the most popular supplements in the industry. It is a single-cell protein and multi-cellular organism, which grows in alkaline waters of certain tropical lakes or in artificial ponds, if cultured in large quantities. Since 1980 spirulina has been successfully used as a supplement and provides health effects such as lowering cholesterol and lowering symptoms of induced fatty liver. It also helps produce more antibodies and activate immune cells.
Maca root – increasing performance in a natural way
The maca root was first cultivated around 2,000 years ago. Growing in the coldest areas of the Peruvian Andes, it is considered as one of the most effective and natural ways to increase health factors such as libido and fertility. In addition to this, it also has a stress-preventing effect on the human brain, which results in longer psychological endurance and slower overall physical exhaustion. It also has medical and therapeutical use in cases of depression and feelings of exhaustion as well as alcalcinosis. Due to its energising effects, it is often used by athletes to increase awareness and performance on the track.
