The Athletic Mindset has partnered with eXfuze!
We are so excited that we finally found a partner to our mindset training and coaching! Although we’d like to think motivating people to “get out of their own way” is ONLY way, in fact we can do so much more now on a physical level to help others!
No matter what you call them, these powerful nutrients are believed to offer benefits beyond basic nutrition. It is believed that they do more than just provide energy and the building blocks to a healthy system; they may even be a precursor that can help prevent the effects of aging, and help in the defense of autoimmune deficiencies.
WHAT are phytonutrients and WHY are they important?
Nature, in her most infinite wisdom, designed plants to manufacture phytochemicals or “nutrients” so that they can protect themselves from elements such as strong sunlight, oxidation, radiation and other harmful things.
Researchers estimate that there are 30,000 to 50,000 of these special phytonutrients – although only about 1,000 have been isolated to date. Even more remarkable are the numbers of phytonutrients within ONE single, unprocessed (or in the raw state), plant-derived food.
So with that in mind, it makes sense that phytonutrients could positively affect human beings by providing a number of health and wellness benefits. In fact, the latest scientific research suggests that the more powerful the phytonutrients that are included in your diet, the greater the degree of health you may enjoy*.
So what are these powerful micro-nutrients? Phytonutrients are compounds found in plants that have a capacity for reaction and interaction. The term “phyto” is derived from the ancient Greek word for “plant”. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of different types of phytonutrients – though just a small percentage have been identified. In fact, these chemical compounds are so new that many nutritionists and scientists still haven’t agreed upon a common name. Some are known as phytochemicals, nutraceuticals, phytomins, phytonutrients, bioactive components, functional foods and more.
The Benefits of Phytonutrient eXtracts
Phytonutrient Extracts are drawn from phytonutrients that are naturally occurring substances in plants. Extracts – which are more than just the 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 their limited knowledge of phytonutrients”.
Since the founding of eXfuze, and the introduction of Seven+TM Classic – the first multi-botanical extract product – eXfuze has positioned itself as a predominant manufacturer and supplier of Phytonutrient Extracts. Their products excel in quality, effectiveness, and most importantly, TASTE. Experience has proven that if a product doesn’t taste good, people do not reorder.
Although there are other products on the market formulated with extracts, many of them taste terrible. That’s not true with eXfuze products. They have a unique scientific extraction and formulation process that synergistically combines a proprietary blend of seven of the world’s most legendary, botanical extracts.
These extracts are: Acai, Goji, Noni, Mangosteen, Gac, Sea-buckthorn and Fucoidan. These ‘superfoods’ are further combined with the powerful nutrition of five other potent ingredients: Pomegranate, Wild Blueberries, Grape Seed Extract, Aloe Vera and Concord grapes. All this provides you with a robust, full flavor to enjoy every day and sometimes multiple times per day.
