Phytonutrients

Phytonutrients are critical for supporting human health

Phytonutrients [phyto meaning ‘plant’] are natural chemicals plants produce to adapt to their diverse environments and protect themselves from germs, fungi, bugs, and other threats. As we evolved alongside plants, they naturally support the health of the underlying systems in our bodies. Examples include carotenoids, flavonoids, and resveratrol.

Our first discovery supports a healthy metabolism

This powerful phytonutrient promotes a healthy metabolism by supporting the health of the liver. When eaten as a whole food or taken as a supplement, we have reason to believe it strengthens the liver’s natural ability to metabolize fats and counteract the harmful effects of free fatty acids and inflammation that can result. The liver is the body’s primary metabolic organ, and a healthy liver helps the body maintain good health and prevent metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and other indicators of metabolic disorder.

Eating with a purpose

We partner with mission-aligned companies to commercialize discoveries in food, beverages, and supplements, restoring consumer trust and shifting the health paradigm to food as medicine.

What’s next

We are actively researching natural plant compounds that address health concerns related to metabolism, immunity, cognition and digestion.
