Cranberry is best known for its potential role in maintaining a healthy urinary tract. Research also suggests that cranberries may have the highest concentration of antioxidant phenols of any common fruit.
Oxidation in animal tissue is normal, yet damaging. When the production of harmful molecules called 'free radicals' is beyond the protective capability of the antioxidant defenses, oxidative stress occurs. Free radicals are highly unstable because they have one or more unpaired electrons. In the body they grab or donate electrons, thereby damaging cells, proteins, and DNA. This same oxidative process is what causes oils to become rancid, peeled apples to turn brown, and iron to rust. Antioxidants are known to protect against free radical damage; a major factor in the ageing process.
phytoFRESH (fresh freeze dried botanicals & wholefoods)
Many of the botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods used in Terranova products are fresh freeze dried. Air, oven and and spray drying - the standard commercial methods used to dry plant materials - can degrade important compounds and alter a plant's delicate biochemical balance. Research shows that fresh freeze drying actually protects and retains a plant's potency, biochemical integrity and enzymatic activity. In fact, the biochemical profile of a fresh freeze dried plant, very closely resembles the profile of the original fresh plant, but in a much greater concentration, due to the removal of the plant's moisture content. In other words, Terranova fresh freeze dried botanicals are a highly concentrated version of the original fresh plant.
