Carbohydrates: The carbohydrate mix is composed mostly of maltodextrin, which has a slower uptake into the bloodstream than glucose or fructose. This helps you avoid getting a ‘sugar rush’ with the resultant high-low mood cycle.
Flax Oil: Absorb Plus doesn’t contain any flax oil – for 2 specific reasons. However, we do encourage you to add as much organic, cold-pressed flax oil as you can tolerate..
Natural Flavors and Sweeteners: A natural fruit-source monosaccharide sugar called Fructose, a monosaccharide sugar called Dextrose and a plant extract called Stevia. Fructose is the natural sugar found in all fruits and some vegetables. Stevia is a 100% natural plant extract that is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar. It is the best alternative to sugar on the market. NOTE: We also have an UNSWEETENED VANILLA version of Absorb Plus.
Absorb Plus is one of the few products on the market containing 100% natural flavoring. Our unique natural flavor blends include French Vanilla, Natural Berry, Chocolate Royale, Mocha Grande, Banana Coconut Creme, Caramel Toffee Twist, Unsweetened Vanilla, Unsweetened Chocolate, Simply Chocolate and Simply Vanilla and are truly yummy. Suffice it to say, we have spent considerable time and effort getting each flavor to taste absolutely delicious.
Amino Acids: Absorb Plus contains an extensive array of free-form amino acids.
Vitamins and Minerals: Our vitamin/mineral profile is unusually extensive and has many benefits.
For those who prefer no added sweeteners, we have Unsweetened Chocolate available.
“Regarding Folic Acid and Folates, there seems to be a common misconception that Folic Acid can only be synthetic. This misconception may have arisen from prior synthetic supplements being exclusively folic acid. The reality is that Folic Acid is simply one hydrolyzed form of folates.
Our product is a 100% USDA Organic extract of Organic Lemon Peel, standardized to 5% Folic Acid. In this water extract, there are numerous different naturally occurring folates. These naturally occurring folates can spontaneously change to hydrolyzed forms of folates (such as folic acid) if the environment around them contains acidity or moisture. They can also spontaneously dehydrolyze if the moisture is removed and the pH rises.
The most advanced analytical lab testing currently available unfortunately alters the folates due to the relative ease with which they hydrolyze. The results from that testing then are not accurate for folates. They are, however, accurate for Folic Acid. That is why it is easier for us to standardize to Folic Acid (and call our product Organic Folic Acid), since the Folic Acid is easily detectable when the folates are hydrolyzed with the testing. Rest assured, the anhydrous form will have the naturally occurring folates.”
