Why Are We Throwing Away The Best Part Of The Coffee Bean?
Until recently, the only coffee options we had were to use the seed of the coffee plant or using the roasted bean. Unfortunately coffee growers threw away the red fruit of the coffee plant because they didn’t know how to use it and it would rot quickly.
Technology and scientists have figured out a way to utilize that wonderful red fruit from the coffee plant and all its beneficial properties. The fruit of the coffee bush is this red fruit that contains the coffee bean. Many knew that there were a lot of nutrients within the fruit as well because, like many plants, the nutrients are distributed throughout the entire plant and not just in a seed.
There are many new health benefits being observed and researched by scientists, and a company has taken much of this information and developed a way to utilize the entire coffee fruit. They call it Coffeeberry, and it contains much higher levels of important nutrients than conventional coffee.
Coffeeberry is full of phenolic acids, which is a powerful antioxidant. How Coffeeberry gets such a high level of phenolic acids is because of the intense sun’s rays the fruit receives. The Coffeeberry fruit grows in high altitude, low latitude regions of the world where the sun’s rays are strongest. As the plane matures and grows this bright red fruit, it has to develop these powerful antioxidants to protect the fruit from the damage caused by the powerful doses of the sun’s radiation and photosynthesis.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Center for Aging at Tufts University measured the Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity (ORAC) of more than 40 fruits and vegetables. Compared to the USDA’s measurements, a 1 gram serving of our CoffeeBerry ® Forte Extract provides the same antioxidant-free radical power as 459 fresh blueberries, 81 medium strawberries, 647 raspberries, or 1015 grapes!
The phenolic acids, also called polyphenols, found in Coffeeberry help to neutralize toxic free radicals, protect against systemic oxidative stress, and reduce the incidence of oxidative pathologies such as coronary heart disease inflammation.
Another wonderful benefit is its association with glucose management, Type 2 Diabetes, and Metabolic Syndrome. This is important for those who are overweight, which leads to poor glucose management and eventually Type 2 Diabetes, if not corrected.
Coffeeberry contains healthy polysaccharides such as mannans and arabinogalactans, as well as five of the eight essential monosaccharides. There are two very important things with these nutrients.
One is that conventional roasting destroys mannans and arabinogalactans, and they are not found in traditional coffee. The second thing is research and emerging science has shown that eight carbohydrates, Mannose, Galactose, Fucose, Xylose, Glucose, Sialic acid, N-Acetyl Glucosamine, and N-Acetylgalactosamine are basic building blocks of all biological communication.
These eight monosaccharides, scientists believe, are essential in order for your immune system to function properly. The five monosaccharides that Coffeeberry releases during digestion are Mannose, Galactose, Fucose, Xylose, Arabinose, and Glucose.
As you can see, drinking conventional coffee may have its benefits, but in reality you are missing out on something way more powerful by not consuming the entire coffee fruit.
We use Coffeeberry in our Prograde Longevity because of its powerful beneficial effects on your immune system and its ability to destroy free radicals that cause damage inside your body because of its high ORAC value. We also included other specific nutrients to create a very powerful antioxidant combination that has a very high ORAC value, which gives you the best opportunity at destroying free radicals and staying disease free.
We are a GMP Rated facility, so what we say is in the bottle is really IN the bottle. Sure, it's extremely difficult to get certified, but we feel the extra effort is worth it. Don't you agree?
