VEGGIE CAROTENOIDS

Veggie Carotenoids- Our Veggie Carotenoids formula is an effective combination of plant-based antioxidants and whole-vegetable extracts designed to provide many of the nutrients missing from less than fresh, over cooked or commercially processed vegetables. In addition to the nutrients listed above, we’ve included Vitamin A as beta carotene and alpha carotene from D. salina algae, an excellent natural source of carotenoids. D. salina also provides xeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, and additional lutein and lycopene. Combine these heavy-hitters of health with whole-vegetable extracts from broccoli, spinach, tomato, kale, cabbage and brussel sprouts, and you’ve got one of the best carotenoid supplements on the market.

GREEN TEA EXTRACT

Green Tea Extract - Green Tea (Camillia sinensis) has been used for thousands of years as a popular beverage and herbal tonic, and it’s one of the more well-studied herbs. Green Tea extract has a high content of polyphenols, a class of bioflavonoids that provide antioxidant benefits. The most active of these polyphenols are catechins, which yield the important catechin Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), a powerful free radical scavenging antioxidant. When looking for a truly effective Green Tea extract product, make sure the brand you choose contains at least 40% catechins. NOW® Green Tea Extract provides 400mg of this potent extract and contains 40% catechins and 60% polyphenols.

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT

Grape Seed Extract - Why are the French known for cardiovascular health?

One widely held theory is their daily consumption of red wine. Not the wine itself, but a class of flavonoid compounds found in certain grapes (Vitis vinifera) and their seeds. These compounds are called proanthocyanidins, and they’ve shown powerful free radical scavenging capabilities in various studies. Proanthocyanidins work synergistically with other flavonoids and various antioxidants like vitamin C to support healthy immune system function. NOW® offers Grape Seed Extract in two different potencies, a 60mg formula with 300mg of additional bioflavonoids, and a high potency 100mg formula that includes calcium ascorbate for additional immune system support. Each product is a standardized herbal extract that provides 90% polyphenols.

LYCOPENE

Lycopene - Scientists have wondered for years why Mediterranean cultures have such a good record of prostate health. Research is providing strong evidence that it has to do with the prevalence of tomato-based foods in their diets. Researchers have uncovered a carotenoid in tomatoes that gives them their red color and health benefits – Lycopene. This unsaturated fat-soluble carotenoid works in conjunction with other antioxidants to eliminate free radicals in the body. Some studies suggest that Lycopene may be up to fifty times more powerful than vitamin E! NOW® uses Lyc-o-mato® tomato extract, one of the highest quality sources for this outstanding natural antioxidant. We carry 10 & 20mg potencies, the highest available.

LUTEIN

Lutein- A fat-soluble carotenoid that gives certain vegetables their yellow pigment, Lutein has enjoyed growing popularity in recent years. Research has shown that lutein protects the macular region of the eye and supports healthy visual function. Lutein makes up most of the pigment in the retina of the human eye. However, damaging UV rays from the sun, as well as other environmental factors, can deplete Lutein levels, so supplementation is important if you don’t consume 3 to 6 servings of phytonutrient-rich vegetables every day. NOW® uses Xangold® Lutein, a potent natural source supplied by Cognis Nutrition. Our 20mg potency is one of the highest currently available.
