It’s not just a matter of living longer. People want to stay healthy for longer. Instead of aiming for a longer lifespan … people over forty start to think about their healthspan.
Jogging at 60. Playing golf at 70. Swimming at 80. Enjoying an active life into your 90s. They’re all possible.
So what makes us age? A big factor is the effect that free radicals have on us. Free radical molecules are caused by things like processed food, sugar, air pollution and cigarette smoke.
A scientist will tell you that free radicals are dysfunctional electrons which crash around your cells looking for another electron to pair with. In doing so they can cause damage to cells … and even to your strands of DNA.
That damage leads to everything from wrinkles to the killer diseases we all dread. And the frightening thing is that free radical damage happens inside us all, thousands of times every day.
But you’re in the driving seat. There are plenty of things you can do to do promote your healthspan.
Antioxidants like resveratrol, ellagic acid and quercetin can repair aging damage.
Nature’s way of dealing with free radicals is antioxidants. The antioxidants found in fruit can ‘mop up’ free radical molecules before they do any lasting damage.
You’ll know that vitamin C is a strong antioxidant. But you might be surprised to learn that - ounce for ounce - the antioxidants found in muscadine grapes are around 50x more potent than vitamin C. That’s a 5000% improvement!
These antioxidants (they’re called OPC Oligomeric procyanidins) are found in the muscadine seed.
“The muscadine is America’s strongest source of antiaging grape antioxidants and polyphenols. Now Muscadinex offers up 229% more bioavailability and 1544% more blood serum resveratrol.”
In addition to grapeseed OPC antioxidants, muscadines also contain special anti aging molecules called polyphenols. These polyphenols include resveratrol, ellagic acid and quercetin.
Resveratrol is the famous ‘red wine’ anti aging molecule. And while we’re talking about figures, you might be interested to learn that wines made with muscadines have up to 100x the resveratrol of wines made with European grapes like pinot noir.
These polyphenols are found in the skin of the muscadine grape. Most grape supplements only contain seed extract. But Muscadinex MX1 also contains the more expensive muscadine skin extract. So you can enjoy powerful resveratrol health benefits.
And now we’ve boosted the bioavailability of Muscadinex MX1 by adding BioPerine® pepper extract. Read on ...
Powdered muscadines have concentrated resveratrol antiaging health benefits.
Fresh muscadines are only available at the end of the summer. And it’s hard to get the full health benefits just from eating the fruit. Here’s why:
Polyphenol-rich muscadine skin is thick and not pleasant to chew.
Antioxidant-rich muscadine seeds are too hard to bite through and digest.
The flesh you are left with is full of fructose fruit sugars.
This means that when people eat fresh muscadines, they are only eating the least healthy part … which is the sugar-rich flesh.
At Muscadinex we remove the sugary flesh, and this is used for making delicious muscadine wines.
We then dry and powder the healthy skin and seed portions of the fruit:
Because we’ve removed the water and made a powder, you’re getting concentrated health benefits.
The sugary flesh is removed. So you get the ‘red wine’ resveratrol benefits of the skin, but without any alcohol.
Because the powder is fine, it is more easily digested, so you get maximum value for money.
Plus our powdered product means you can enjoy muscadine health benefits all year round!
Importantly, you get the healthy anti-oxidant and polyphenol molecules in their natural proportions. At Muscadinex we say that Mother Nature is in charge of product development. We don’t add anything … or take anything away from the healthy ingredients.
