Organic Red Goods - 275 g by Scientific Bio-Logics
Modern American society has created extremely active, on the go individuals who are trying to balance their health with an exceedingly busy work and home environment. People are consuming higher amounts of ready-made processed foods. As a result, many are not able to eat well-balanced, highly nutritious meals throughout the day.The National Cancer Institute (NCI) encourages Americans to eat 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. A survey conducted by the National Health and Nutrition Examination committee found that only 1 in 10 Americans ate the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables per day. More alarmingly, the largest overall contributor to America's fruit intake was orange juice.
Research has shown that maintaining a healthy lifestyle includes consuming a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables grown on nutrient dense soil. Scientific Bio-Logics®’s Organic Red Goods™ is an excellent tasting, highly concentrated formula that provides all the exceptional phytochemical benefits from a variety of nutritious fruits and vegetables in one convenient serving per day.

Plants contain a large array of biologically active compounds known as phytochemicals. These secondary metabolites are essential for the survival and growth of the plant; they help the plant adapt to the varying environmental conditions that it is exposed to. In fact, the amount of phytochemicals produced by a plant will vary depending on climate, soil content, insect and bacterial abundance, moisture, ultraviolet radiation, and numerous other environmental factors. Not only are fruits and vegetables affected by the environmental conditions in which it is grown, but agricultural methods such as fertilization, pesticides, maturity at harvest, and storage conditions also alter the quantity of phytochemicals and micronutrients present. This can lead to an increased need for proper supplementation to make up for these valuable missing nutrients.
Scientific Bio-Logics® provides a certified organic fruit and red vegetable formula that contains a variety of nutritious berries. Berries contain a relatively high amount of micronutrients including antioxidant vitamins C and E, B vitamins, calcium, potassium, carotenoids and numerous phytochemicals. The number of phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables are vast; researchers have identified and isolated 8000 different phenolic compounds, which are a subclass of phytochemicals produced by plants. Phytochemicals have been shown to play a major role in the prevention of various diseases and may be important in certain critical functions throughout body.
Scientific Bio-Logics® uses all organically grown fruits and vegetables that have gone through minimal processing within the hour after harvesting to ensure that the maximum levels of phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals are present. To protect the product from oxidation and degradation during the manufacturing process, Scientific Bio-Logics® reduces the humidity levels to less than 1 tenth of a percent at room temperature. This ensures that the antioxidant capacity of the phytochemicals are maintained to their fullest potential.
Carotenoids are a major class of phytochemicals largely abundant in a variety of colorful vegetables and fruits. Beta-carotene is one of the best known out of the 600 naturally occurring carotenoids pigments synthesized by plants and algae. Several of the carotenoids, such as alpha and beta-carotene, are pro-vitamin A compounds. This means they can be converted into vitamin A and retinol in the body. Vitamin A is necessary for normal growth and development, vision health, and immune system functioning. All the carotenoids display important antioxidant properties throughout the body. Carotenoids protect against damage to cell membranes and lipoprotein vesicles caused by free radical molecules because they are fat-soluble compounds. Many carotenoids and their metabolites are found in eye tissues and may play a role in the prevention of age related degenerative eye disorders. Lycopene is another well known carotenoid found in the red pigment of tomatoes. Compared to other antioxidants, lycopene is about two orders of magnitude more potent than Vitamin E in its ability to mitigate the effects of singlet oxygen free radicals. Several epidemiological studies found that men with lower serum levels of lycopene had an increased risk of developing abnormal, unregulated prostate tissue growth.
Several subclasses of phytochemicals like stilbenes, flavonoids, proanthocyanidins and anthocyanins also provide extensive antioxidant protection throughout the body. Regular consumption of berries, which contain vitamins C,E, and other antioxidant compounds, have been shown to increase serum antioxidant levels, reduce lipid and LDL oxidation, help regulate the inflammatory response, and expression of inflammatory genes in the body.
Several epidemiological studies have shown that there is a correlation between berry consumption and the reduced risk of an adverse cardiovascular event. Having adequate antioxidant levels in the body are important due to their ability to reduce or deactivate free radical molecules. Free radicals are unstable molecules that cause cellular damage through the process of oxidation, which occurs when an electron is removed from a stable molecule by the free radical. During this process, a new free radical molecule is formed that can continue the chain reaction of cellular destruction, and extend free radical formation. Once this cascade has started, it can eventually result in the complete disruption of a living cell. Free radicals can also damage DNA, which may cause critical mutations in important genes. This creates the opportunity for abnormal cell growth and disease progression. Chronic oxidative stress and cellular damage leads to inflammation, the root cause of many degenerative diseases. Antioxidant molecules sacrifice one of their electrons in order to stabilize and deactivate the free radical, thus preventing further cellular damage.
People are constantly exposed to free radicals from both internal toxins formed from normal metabolic processes and environmental toxins such as air pollution, pesticides, cooking methods, industrial chemicals. The body, when supplied with the proper nutrients, developed amazing mechanisms to combat free radical damage. It manufactures antioxidants enzymes, like glutathione peroxidase, that can deactivate free radical molecules and stop the chain reaction of cellular damage. The foods we ingest also supply the body with a variety of antioxidants compounds, stemming from vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, anthocyanins and other valuable phytonutrients. It is critical for people to eat several servings of colorful organic fruits and vegetables, teas and spices, and super foods such as maqui and goji berries per day to maintain optimal health. Antioxidants provide the needed defense mechanisms to deactivate free radical molecules, regulate inflammation, improve the aging process, prevent degenerative diseases, and allow the body to perform at its highest potential.
