I have always been curious about the actual power of antioxidants. The claims sound too good to be true. Can they really reverse aging and cell damage? When I heard about Jeunesse Global’s antioxidant supplement drink Reserve, a powerhouse of fruit extracts with the famous antioxidant compound resveratrol as its engine, I decided to look a bit closer.
Reserve is a combination of five powerful superfruits: pomegranate, blueberry, dark cherry, acai and grape. These were selected for their high levels of antioxidants generally, and resveratrol specifically. This particular combination results in not only a great tasting product but also an outstanding nutritional profile. These antioxidant compounds have been the subject of scientific studies for decades, all hoping to find that elusive elixir, a fountain of youth encapsulated in a berry or a glass of wine. Resveratrol is the antioxidant compound that has gotten the most scientific “buzz” lately. It is most closely associated with the “French Paradox” and with good reason. It found in abundance in red wine, so closely associated with the classic French diet and thought to be part of the reason for the good health of the French population.
I think it’s perfectly normal to be a bit skeptical about how much of these antioxidants survive preparation and bottling and whether they can be effective. Fortunately, Reserve eased my mind on this front. Jeunesse Global, committed to answering the skeptics, tested Reserve’s actual impact on red blood cells. Their product offered over 25% more protection than another antioxidant, gallic acid. Pretty cool results, don’t you think? As for anything that might detract from this healthy fruity concoction, Reserve has not artificial flavors, no artificial colors and no artificial preservatives. It really sounds like something I can feel good about putting into my body!
I guess we all feel a bit run down from time to time. Modern life is full of stresses and our environment frequently contains pollutants in our air and food. Maybe drinking a supplement filled with powerful potentially restorative antioxidants is one delicious way to counteract all of that.
