Our premium cranberry extract is made exclusively from nutrient-rich, air-dried cranberries by a specialist producer in France. Native to North America, the cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon) are grown naturally and are free from pesticides and synthetic fertiliser residues. The ultra-pure extraction is performed a single time using only water and food grade ethanol, meaning that the active ingredient does not come into contact with any further chemical solvents or extraction agents. Water–ethanol extraction is ideal for producing a PAC-rich extract, as PACs are highly soluble in both water and ethanol.
Due to the high content of bioactives found in cranberries, the extract contains a rich content of proanthocyanidins (PACs), the most biologically active compounds of the cranberry. The rich purple colour of our extract indicates the premium quality of the air-dried cranberries as well as its high PAC content.
Other suppliers often advertise high-dose cranberry extracts despite these usually containing only a low amount of PACs; most extracts on the market contain a maximum of 36mg PACs per capsule. Our extract is standardised to 40% PACs, resulting in 50mg of these potent bioactives per capsule. This standardisation enables a consistently high content of bioactives and ensures excellent quality.
In contrast to other vitamin C products, which often use synthetic active ingredients, we use original PureWay-C®, produced in a complex, 6-step fermentation process. As a result of the coating of plant-based fatty acids and citrus bioflavonoid complex, our vitamin C exibits a significantly higher bioavailability than conventional vitamin C formulations.
This product only contains two ingredients, which are both of the highest purity: 125mg of cranberry extract with 40% (50mg) PACs and 80mg of vitamin C combined with bioflavonoids and plant-based fatty acids. There are no additives or synthetic vitamin C in this formulation.
For the capsule shells we use custom-made HPMC capsules that, unlike most other HPMC and pullulan capsules on the market, are 100% free from controversial additives such as carrageenans and PEG. We then package this product in environmentally friendly amber glass.
