What is g3 ? g3 delivers the benefits of the prized gâc superfruit of southern Asia, blended with three additional superfruits. Among gâc’s potent phytonutrients are a unique delivery form of carotenoids called lipocarotenes, that allow for enhanced absorption. g3 has a refreshing flavour that is deliciously sweet, slightly tart and can be enjoyed daily by the whole family.
Pharmanex ® scientists searched the world and evaluated hundreds of superfruits for: Extraordinary antioxidant efficacy (Pharmanex ® BioPhotonic Scanner) Extraordinary nutritional contents Quality of scientific efficacy data Impeccable safety data History of traditional folklore usage Unique fruits to allow unique business opportunity Selection Process of g3 Superfruits
Only Four Fruits Met Criteria Gâc fruit Chinese lycium Cili fruit Siberian pineapple
= Gâc fruit + 3 superfruits = 3 years of Pharmanex ® research = 3 Pharmanex ® research labs What is in a Name?
Gâc - “Fruit from Heaven” Momordica cochinchinensis
In Southern Asia, the gâc vine is often seen growing on lattices at the entrances of rural homes. Among its many uses, gâc is used to prepare a special rice dish known as Xoi Gâc or “red rice”, traditionally served at celebrations.
Gâc contains lycopene, beta-carotene and vitamin E which are recognised as beneficial antioxidants. Lipocarotenes: A unique delivery of fatty acids with antioxidant-carotenoids for enhanced absorption. Antioxidants in Gâc Pulp
Lipocarotenes: Unique Delivery System Gâc fruit & Siberian pineapple: –contain fatty acids (unique among fruits) –carotenoids & vitamin E pre-dissolved in fatty acids Lipocarotenes: a matrix of fatty acids with carotenoids –40% greater plasma absorption* –55% Skin Carotenoid Score increase* *Compared to ordinary carotenoids
VUONG et al.: “Am J Clin Nutr.”, 2002 May,75(5), pp 872-9. Above chart shows comparison of quantity of beta-carotene absorbed into the blood stream after taking equal amounts of beta-carotene in synthetic versus lipocarotene form. Lipocarotenes in Gâc Fruit are more Bioavailable for the Body μmol/L 40% Greater Absorption Synthetic β-caroteneβ-carotene from gâc lipcarotenes
Lipocarotenes in g3 are more Bioavailable Raman Intensity Counts (RICs) 55% Greater Scanner increase Carotenoids in non-lipocarotene form G3 lipocarotenes
Gâc - “Fruit From Heaven” Indigenous to Southern Asia Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam Traditionally used internally and externally Topical: wound healing Internally: eye health and promoting growth in children
Other g3 Superfruits 2,000-year history of traditional use in –Siberia, Tibet, China and Europe –Rejuvenating tonic, for skin health, blood purifier Over 130 modern research studies: –Cardiovascular health* –Promotes skin health* –Promotes metabolism and digestive health* –Immunity* –Contains vitamins A,C, E, B-vitamins and minerals and tremendous amounts of other actives Siberian Pineapple (sea buckthorn, Hippophae rhamnoides ) *Research conducted on Siberian pineapple fruit, not g3
*Research conducted on Chinese lycium, not g3 2,000 years of traditional medicine history in China Contributes to cell protection against free radicals Cellular rejuvenation (protects DNA)* Eye health (zeaxanthin)* Other g3 Superfruits Chinese Lycium (Wolfberry, Lycium chinense )
Other g3 Superfruits *Research conducted on Cili fruit, not g3 Cili Fruit ( Rosa roxburghii ) Grown in China, esp. Guizhou mountains Unique Polyphenols “King of C”: Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects the body cells
Cell membrane (fat soluble) Intracellular fluid (water soluble) Vitamin C Vitamin E β-carotene Lycopene g3 provides abundant amounts of both water and fat soluble antioxidants to protect both water and fat soluble portions of the cells. g3 Protects All Areas of Cell
Peer-Review Scientific Paper Current Topics in Nutraceutical Research, November 2005 Discusses the Benefits of the Superfruits Used in g3
