Trévo Backs its Antioxidant Nutrition with Scientific Testing

As you may have read, the FDA removed the ORAC online database back in 2012. That said, Brunswick Laboratories, which is the internationally-recognized laboratory that routinely tests and certifies Trévo’s product, has taken the original scope of ORAC testing to an entirely new, much more complex level.Case in point, the original ORAC scope of testing addressed only the single peroxyl radical test (the most common free radical present in the human body). Today, however, ORAC 6.0™ consists of six types of ORAC assays that evaluate the antioxidant capacity of a material against six primary reactive oxygen or nitrogen species (ROSs or RNSs, commonly called “oxygen radicals” or ROSs) found in humans: peroxyl radical, hydroxyl radical, superoxide anion, singlet oxygen, peroxynitrite, and hypochlorite.
 

 
As such, ORAC testing has been and remains a valuable analytical tool in connection with other investigative methods, such as the CAP-e analytical testing that Trévo also utilizes in determining the antioxidant efficacy of our product.

To learn more about the continuing value and relevance of ORAC 6.0, we invite you to read the following two articles from Brunswick Labs:

As just mentioned, Trévo also utilizes CAP-e testing to verify the antioxidant power of its product. The CAP-e assay (Cell-based Antioxidant Protection in Erythrocytes) is an incredibly accurate method for evaluating the antioxidant potential of natural products based on the concept that many such antioxidant products are only of biological relevance if they are able to protect living cells. In other words, it is a cell-based assay for the evaluation of whether antioxidants in nutritional products are capable of protecting live cells from oxidative damage. The test is designed to measure the antioxidant bioavailability of a product at a cellular level.
 

 
This measurement reflects the relative antioxidant protection of cells by the test product per weight, compared to the known antioxidant, Gallic Acid. The CAP-e antioxidant protection test is the new industry standard specifically developed to investigate how bioavailable the antioxidants are to the cells. This cell-based testing has emerged as a new technology to assess the complex biologic protective mechanisms in the cells. Put simply, the test can tell what is going on inside the cells of our bodies after consuming the supplement.

The CAP-e assay is performed by allowing red blood cells to absorb antioxidants from a physiological liquid containing soluble product. All compounds not absorbed into the cell are then removed. The cell is exposed to oxidative stress. An indicator dye shows the degree of intracellular damage to the cell, in the presence versus absence of serial dilutions of the test product. The CAP-e test uses erythrocyte cells. “Erythrocyte” means “red blood cell”. This type of cell is the most abundant in our blood stream. In a healthy person there are more than 100 times more red blood cells than white blood cells. The red blood cells are best known as transporters of oxygen through our body. However, we are beginning to understand the enormity of other roles these cells play. Whereas the white blood cells provide protection from invading pathogens by immune defense mechanisms, the red blood cells support the life and health of the white blood cells. Of importance to the antioxidant discussion, the red blood cells help to protect the vasculature, tissue, and the other cells in the blood stream from oxidative damage.
 

 
Trévo is one of the very few companies using both ORAC Testing and CAP-e testing to determine our product’s remarkable antioxidant power.

In testing Trévo, NIS Labs found that the antioxidant nutrients in just one-half ounce of Trévo are powerful enough to start providing measurable cellular protection!

Are You Getting Enough Folate in your Diet?

Folate, also known vitamin B9, is one of many essential vitamins needed for copying and synthesizing DNA, producing new cells, and supporting nerve and immune functions. As a water-soluble B vitamin, it’s naturally present in some foods, added to others, and in Trѐvo in the form of folic acid.

Studies show that a diet high in folate-rich foods can help support cellular health, heart health, and cognitive health as well as a number of other valuable health benefits. Folic acid also encourages normal fetal development. In fact, folic acid, calcium, and iron have long been considered the trinity of prenatal wellness.

Most health professionals agree that adults need about 400 micrograms daily, which is exactly the amount of folic acid present in each delicious one-ounce serving of Trѐvo.

So, where does folate come from? Spinach, collard greens, kale, turnip greens and romaine lettuce are all known to provide an immediate boost in folic acid. In fact, one large plate of these delicious leafy greens will fulfill nearly all of your daily folate needs. That said, very few people actually sit down to a huge plate of spinach every day.

The good news is that Trѐvo contains a wide spectrum of 100% vegetarian nutrients that are known to be rich in folate. In addition to spinach and kale, Trѐvo offers the folate-rich health benefits of:

• Asparagus – Out of the entire vegetable kingdom, asparagus is one of the most nutrient dense foods with folic acid.
• Broccoli – Broccoli is one of the best detox foods you can eat, and it’s a rich source of folic acid.
• Brussels sprouts – There is no denying that Brussels sprouts are one of the best foods for folic acid. Brussels sprouts are also high in vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, and potassium.
• Cauliflower – This cruciferous vegetable is typically regarded as one of the best vitamin C foods, but it’s also a great source of folic acid.
• Citrus fruits – Many fruits contain folic acid, and citrus fruits rank the highest. Oranges are an especially rich source of folic acid. Other folate-rich fruits included in Trѐvo are papaya, grapefruit, and raspberries.

There you have it. In addition to its cornucopia of health-giving nutrients for your whole body, Trѐvo is also a rich and very bioavailable source for your body’s daily folate needs.

Synergy

Harnessing the Combined Power of Multiple Nutrients

Synergy is defined as “the combined action of two or more substances or agents to achieve an effect greater than that of which each is individually capable.”

In the dietary world, this phenomenon is called nutrient synergy – a case of specific nutrients working in concert to produce a health benefit that is far greater than the sum of the individual parts. Whether it is because they enhance each other’s absorption or because they have more potent physiological effects when they join forces, pairing nutrients that have a synergistic effect can help promote and support good health, energy, mental clarity, and even longevity. The right combinations of nutrients can lead to optimization for our bodies and our palates simultaneously.

Here is a look at five dynamic duos and trios of nutrients that have proven synergistic effects:

Vitamin C and Iron

The synergistic effect: Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) acts as a catalyst to help our bodies absorb iron better from food and from supplements. This is important because iron is an essential component of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that delivers oxygen to every cell in your body. Without enough iron and oxygen, you’re likely to feel tired, your immune system’s ability to fight off infections will take a hit and your brain function may not be as sharp as it could or should be.

Vitamins B6, B12 and Folate

The synergistic effect: They work together synergistically to reduce levels of homocysteine, an amino acid, in the body. Lower homocysteine supports and helps maintain cardiovascular system health. The trio of B vitamins also helps maintain brain health and proper neurological function.

Calcium and Vitamin D

The synergistic effect: Calcium is known as the bone-building nutrient but vitamin D is absolutely essential for proper calcium absorption.

Vitamins C and E

The synergistic effect: Both have antioxidant properties, helping to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. They act as a defense system to keep the cells healthier – the combination is more effective than either is alone. Together, they also support the maintenance of circulatory and cardiovascular system health.

Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium

The synergistic effect: Every mineral affects two other nutrients – it is like a ping-pong situation. In the case of these three minerals, there is a group dynamic that helps promote proper nerve function and electrolyte balance while also supporting healthy blood pressure. They do not work as well individually to positively affect blood pressure.

These are just five examples of the importance of synergy when it comes to choosing the best nutritional supplement for your family. Trѐvo, with its 174 carefully selected and masterfully combined ingredients, utilizes nutrient synergy to increase, enhance and empower the nutritional benefits of each and every ingredient in this fabulous, one-of-a-kind vegetarian nutritional product.

Why Do We Need Vitamin D?

Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, can be produced in the body through sun exposure or consumed in food or supplements.

However, it is estimated that vitamin D produced by the sun has a half-life of only two weeks, meaning that stores can easily run low, especially in winter. Recent studies have suggested that up to 50% of adults and children worldwide are vitamin D deficient.


 

Adequate vitamin D intake is important for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus absorption, maintenance of healthy bones and teeth, and is suggested to supply a protective effect in connection with a number of today’s health issues. For example, if your body does not get enough vitamin D, you are at risk of developing bone abnormalities such as soft bones (osteomalacia) or fragile bones (osteoporosis).


 

Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body, helping to:

  • Maintain the health of bones and teeth
  • Support the health of the immune system, brain and nervous system
  • Regulate insulin levels and support healthy blood sugar levels
  • Support lung function and cardiovascular health

What other benefits might vitamin D offer?

According to a study presented at the American College of Cardiology 65th Annual Scientific Session & Expo in Chicago, IL, daily supplementation with vitamin D may improve heart function. According to Dr. Klaus Witte of the University of Leeds School of Medicine in the UK, and his colleagues, a daily vitamin D supplement could be beneficial for patients with heart health issues.


 

Research has also shown that vitamin D may play an important role in regulating mood and supporting a sense of well-being. In some studies, scientists found that people with depression who received vitamin D supplements noticed an improvement in their symptoms. (1)(2)

How much vitamin D does a healthy adult typically require each day?

According to the Mayo Clinic and the Institute of Medicine, the recommended daily allowance (RDA) is 600 IU for those 1-70 years of age. The good news is that each and every delicious ounce of Trѐvo contains 400 IU of vitamin D. So by enjoying two ounces daily, you can rest assured that you are giving your body all the vitamin D it needs to function at its very optimum best.

Are You Getting Enough Garlic?

Garlic provides much more than fabulous flavor for your meals. It is also an excellent source of manganese and vitamin B6, a very good source of vitamin C and copper, and a good source of selenium, phosphorus, vitamin B1, and calcium.

However, it is the sulfur compounds in garlic that really make this pungent vegetable a superstar in terms of overall health benefits. The sulfur-containing compounds in this vegetable have been shown to provide us with health advantages in a wide variety of body systems, including: our cardiovascular system, immune system, inflammatory system, digestive system, endocrine system, and detoxification system.


 

Garlic provides us with cardiovascular benefits in a variety of different ways. In fact, so diverse are these different pathways for cardiovascular support that new studies keep discovering new ways in which garlic helps protect this body system. By far, the best researched of these pathways are the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties found in this allium vegetable.

Chronic unwanted inflammation is, of course, a special risk within our blood vessels since it can contribute to damage of our blood vessel walls, formation of plaque, and eventual clogging of our blood vessels. A sulfur-containing compound called thiacremonone has been most closely associated with the anti-inflammatory activity of garlic in our cardiovascular system.

Right alongside this anti-inflammatory support is the antioxidant support provided to our heart and blood vessels through consumption of garlic. In this antioxidant category, the many forms of cysteine found in garlic have received special research attention, as have the presence of glutathione and selenium. Of course, it is also important to remember that garlic is an excellent source of the antioxidant mineral manganese and a very good source of vitamin C, another key antioxidant nutrient.

All types of health benefits from garlic combine together to make this allium vegetable helpful in supporting and helping to maintain cardiovascular health. In addition, it is worth noting that the everyday flexibility of our blood vessels has been shown to improve with intake of garlic.


 

One exciting area of research involves the potential role of garlic to support bone health. Studies have shown that cigarette smoking increases our risk of osteoporosis, inadequate bone mineral density, and inability to heal from bone fractures. Conversely, intake of garlic may be able to reduce the risk of these problems by offsetting some of the potential damage caused by chronic exposure to cigarette smoke. Especially interesting in this context is the potential of garlic to help protect osteoblast cells from damage. Osteoblasts are bone cells that help produce new bone matrix (the intercellular substance of bone tissue). If garlic intake can help protect these cells from potential damage by cigarette smoke, it may be able to help support formation of new bone matrix and maintenance of existing bone structure.

Incorporating Trѐvo into your daily diet can ensure that your body receives the amazing health benefits of garlic as well as 173 other fabulous and nutrient-dense vegetarian ingredients, all in one delicious product.

Antioxidants: What You and Your Family Need to Know

You have probably heard a lot of buzz about antioxidants, but do you know what an antioxidant actually is? Have you have wondered, “What do antioxidants do?”Here is the “411” on antioxidants – what they are, where you can find them, and how they benefit your health.

According to scientific research, if you are not getting sufficient antioxidant-type nutrition in your diet every day, you are quickly losing the battle of the aging process, including the increased risk of a significant list of chronic diseases that have been directly linked to free radical damage. In fact, chronic inflammation at the cellular level is the underlying cause of most of today’s significant diseases.

The fact is that an antioxidant-rich diet can help you feel better, look younger and live longer. And who doesn’t want to enjoy that kind of vibrant good health? But anti-aging is only one of the myriad of fabulous health benefits associated with antioxidant-rich nutrition.

Antioxidants possess a unique ability to fight harmful free radicals that accumulate in the cells of your body. As just mentioned, free radicals have been linked to a number of chronic diseases. They are also considered to be a primary cause of premature aging.

Oxidants vs antioxidants

A great number of our health adversities can be directly traced to the distortion or corruption of oxygen. That’s right, the very thing that gives life can also help take it away. Oxidants, also known as free radicals, are toxic forms of oxygen that occur in our bodies at a cellular level, and they can cause normal cells to mutate.

Once formed, these highly reactive free radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs.

In doing so, they can cause significant damage to cells in the body and can set off chain reactions of what is termed “oxidative damage” and “oxidative stress.”

Oxidative stress on the body can damage its DNA, compromising cell walls and allowing substances into the cell that aren’t supposed to be there, as well as make LDL (bad) cholesterol stick to blood vessels, causing atherosclerosis. Oxidative damage has been linked to several diseases, including cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer. (1, 2)

Antioxidants are nature’s answer to these ravaging free radicals, targeting and disabling them within the cells of your body 24/7.

Where, oh where are the antioxidants?

In nature, of course! Take a look at the brightly colored fruits and vegetables in your local market. Each one of these tasty treats are rich in antioxidants. In fact, the brighter the color pigments in these vibrant beauties, the higher the antioxidant content.

Trévo’s formulation features a special antioxidant-rich blend of over 60 exotic and native fruits, sea vegetables, garden vegetables, green superfoods, and herbs, making it one of the most powerful and bioavailable antioxidant-packed products on the market today.

For example, the antioxidant content of the acai berry has been estimated to be ten times more potent than that of red grapes.

antioxidants4

 

Goji berries contain more beta carotene than carrots and an astounding 500 times more vitamin C by weight than oranges. Beta carotene and vitamin C are both potent antioxidant superstars. And since the body cannot manufacture these vitamin antioxidants, they must be supplied in our diet. (3, 4)

Pomegranate, which is also a component of Trévo’s antioxidant-rich formula, is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidant sources. Just one pomegranate contains three times the antioxidant properties of red wine or green tea.

Be sure to watch for our next blog to learn how science confirms the bioavailability and efficacy of Trévo’s one of a kind blend of nature’s best antioxidant nutrients.
