Raspberry Seeds contain Ellagic Acid, An Antioxidant that can shut down tumors!
Antioxidant, Raw Seeds for "health nuts" to create their own nutritional programs.
Whole, Raw, Raspberry Seeds, for smoothie enthusiasts who own a high-powered blender (VitaMix, Blendtec, Good4U) or a coffee mill to add freshly ground seeds with other ingredients.
Raspberries contain one of the most powerful antioxidants known; a series of ellagitannins which are converted into ellagic acid in your body. Many fruits contain ellagitannins, but your body cannot convert all sources into useable, beneficial levels of ellagic acid.
Raspberries are one of the few sources of ellagitannins that your body can transform into useful levels of ellagic acid. The very best way to get the ellagic acid is with extra fine ground raspberry seeds, combined with synergists.
Consider our already milled product: EllagiPlex
Ellagic Acid is present in all parts of the raspberry, but it is most highly concentrated in the seed. It was found that Ellagic Acid is not changed, nor its potency weakened, by freezing, drying, or processing into a powder. The seed is processed into a maximum bioavailable flour, which frees the ellagitannins for immediate absorption and transformation into ellagic acid.
Many fruits contain ellagitannins. However, raspberry ellagitannins are one of very few fruits that have been clinically shown to be transformed into beneficial levels of ellagic acid in the human body.
Small amounts of Ellagic Acid is found in other foods (such as strawberries, blackberries, walnuts, pecans, pomegranates, and cranberries), however, raspberries have been found to have up to six times more.
Ellagitannins can also act as antibacterial agents. In order for bacteria to replicate, they require an enzyme called gyrase. Ellagitannins inhibit gyrase activity, so replication is restricted. Resistance to this type of antibacterial action is very difficult, making it a very desirable alternative.
Ellagitannins have antiviral activity also. Viruses do not have the ability to replicate, instead they must insert themselves into a host cell. This requires an enzyme called integrase, which is inhibited by ellagitannins.
Ellagitannins can help regulate blood sugar level.
Organic or Not Organic
We use raspberry seeds from responsibly farmed sources with “no agricultural chemicals detected” that come to us as fresh, whole seeds. You can grind them yourself in a hand-held mill, and consume them right away, before they go rancid.
The typical “organic raspberry seed” is already milled, without the protection of emulsifiers and anti-oxidants, so it is stale and rancid. If it is in a capsule, you cannot tell, but it is stale.
The organic milled seed costs about 8x more than the whole seeds offered here and is available only seasonally.
Directions for Use
Exsula Superfoods, Whole Raspberry Seed are of the Meeker variety, and much like flax seed they need to be freshly ground before each use, to preserve the fragile essential fatty acids from oxidization. Use right after grinding (in a small coffee grinder), as the seed will quickly oxidize and turn rancid.
This product is for those who like to grind and mix raspberry seed with other ingredients, creating a unique nutritional program.
Powerful, all natural antioxidant. Raspberries are one of the few sources that your body can transform into useful levels of ellagic acid, the most powerful antioxidant.
