“So much more than leafy greens!”
Spinach is an excellent natural source of polyphenols, luteins, and nitrates. Our spinach extract contains a standardized total polyphenol concentration and a guaranteed lutein concentration of 0.15%. We are presently working to increase the lutein concentration to 1.0%, an unprecedented amount given that lutein is insoluble in water.
Scientific research has been conducted on the polyphenols in our spinach extract in the following areas:
- Antioxidant properties
- Protection against a decline in cognitive function
- Reduced brain tissue damage following a stroke
- Improved eye health through the prevention of macular degeneration
- Enhanced athletic performance and recovery
Nutra Canada has a grade of spinach extract containing total polyphenols and luteins that can be standardized to our clients’ specifications.
