Nature, in its infinite wisdom, had designed plants to manufacture these phytochemicals or ‘nutrients’ in order to protect themselves from strong sunlight, oxidation, radiation and other harmful elements. Researchers presently estimate that there are 30,000 to 50,000 of these phytonutrients, although only about 1,000 have been isolated so far. Even more remarkable is the number of phytonutrients within ONE single, unprocessed, plant-derived food.
When you think about it, it makes common sense that phytonutrients could affect human beings and other mammals in a number of similar, beneficial ways. The latest scientific minds also believe that the more powerful phytonutrients you add to your diet, the greater the degree of health you may enjoy*.
So what are these powerful micro-nutrients? In its simplest definition, phytonutrients are the compounds within plants that have a capacity for reaction and interaction. The term “phyto” is derived from the ancient Greek word for “plant”, and there are hundreds if not thousands of different types of phytonutrients, although only a small percentage have thus far been identified in nutritional laboratories. In fact, these chemical compounds are so new (only first discovered and researched since the l970’s), that many nutritionists and scientists still haven’t agreed upon a common name; some call them phytochemicals, nutraceuticals, phytomins, phytonutrients, bioactive components, functional foods, or even designer foods.
The truth is that no matter what you call them, these powerful nutrients offer benefits beyond basic nutrition. They do more than just provide energy and the building blocks to a healthy system; they may be a major precursor to help prevent the effects of aging, and help in the defense of autoimmune deficiencies.
The Benefits of Phytonutrient eXtracts
Phytonutrient Extracts are the extracts drawn from phytonutrients that are the naturally occurring substances in plants. Extracts, more so than juice or concentrates have several powerful health-enhancing benefits. In fact, according to an article published by the Agricultural Research Service of the USDA, “…cancer, heart disease, auto-immune and Alzheimer's disease may plague the middle-aged and elderly because of our limited knowledge of phytonutrients”.
Since the founding of eXfuze, and the introduction of Seven+TM Classic, the first multi-botanical extract, we have firmly positioned ourselves as a predominant manufacturer and supplier of Phytonutrient Extracts that excel in quality, effectiveness, and most importantly, TASTE. Experience has proven that if a product doesn’t taste good, people will not reorder.
Although there are other products on the market formulated with extracts, many of them taste terrible, or have a very bitter after-taste. Not so with eXfuze products. Through our unique scientific extraction and formulation processes, we have synergistically combined a proprietary blend of seven of the world’s most legendary, botanical extracts: Acai, Goji, Noni, Mangosteen, Gac, Sea-buckthorn and Fucoidan. These ‘superfoods’ were combined with the powerful nutrition of five other potent ingredients: Pomegranate, Wild Blueberries, Grape Seed Extract, Aloe Vera and Concord grapes…all to give you a robust, full flavor to enjoy every day…sometimes multiple times per day.
Our Commitment to Excellence
Over the years, we have continued to improve and enhance our formulations, and have won the trust of many customers and distributors by continuing to deliver premium phytonutrient extracts at the best and most affordable price. We are committed to providing the highest quality in the selection of ingredients, as well as in our manufacturing processes and packaging, all to ensure that our customers and distributors realize the many benefits of our products.
