    Download the Green Coffee Flyer

    Green coffee bean extract is one of the most popular ingredients, belonged to top ingredients of US mainstream multi-outlet channel. The huge demand arouses attention for the authenticity, and supply chain security. There were several adulteration issues, including coffee plant leaves, bamboo, and other botanicals.

    Tea, was first regarded as a medicinal beverage.

    Consumers have been associating coffee to fat burning effect thanks to the caffein, but the photoactive which provide the efficacy on weight is the chlorogenic acid. To avoid the "jittery" effect that caffein does, we reduce the caffein content in green coffee bean extract. (Ref: Jeszka-Skowron M, et al. 2016. )
    Chlorogenic acids exhibits various biological properties, including antibacterial, antioxidant, and hepatoprotective activities, particularly blood sugar regulation. It is proven to reduce visceral fat and body weight.(Ref: Meng S, et al. 2013.)

    Milk thistle is traditional western plant. Milk thistle is native to Europe and was introduced into North America by early colonists. Milk thistle is found throughout the eastern United States, California, South America, as well as Africa, Australia, and Asia. The mature plant grows up to 2 meters high and has large, bright purple flowers and many stout spines.

    Milk thistle protects liver health

    Milk thistle seeds are considered one of the most important liver herbs available. Its potent extract called silymarin is used to aid in liver support and is the only substance known to protect, revive, heal, detox, as well as generate new liver cells. It also protects liver cell membranes while regenerating new cells. Milk thistle stimulates protein synthesis in the liver, helping new cells to form and grow.
    In China, the seeds (Shui Fei Ji) are used specifically to protect the liver, increase bile production and to protect against oxidative exposure, including oxidative exposure from radiation treatments. It is also commonly used in China to treat cirrhosis, gallbladder ailments and as an antioxidant and antiviral.

    Silymarin is the active component

    The active constituent in milk thistle is silymarin. Silymarin is a group of flavonoids (silibinin, silydianin, and silychristin) that are known for repairing liver cells damaged by alcohol and other toxic substances. It is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant property as well

    Due to the high lipid content in thistle fruits, silymarin extraction expels a commonly organic solvent such as acetone or hexane. At Better World Naturals, we also perform extractions with milder solvents such as ethanol/water which provide safe and clean extracts intended for use in dietary supplement supporting liver health.

  • Green Tea

    Download the Green Tea Flyer

    With its earliest reference dating back to the year 2737 BC, the history behind green tea is fascinating. Shennong —literally, the ‘Divine Farmer’—is a legendary Chinese emperor, renown for combining agriculture and medicine. He is also credited with discovering the virtues of tea. The story goes that one day while out in the forest, Shennong was resting and some tea leaves fell into his cup of hot water. He tasted the beverage and found it very pleasant. Tea culture was born.

    Tea, was first regarded as a medicinal beverage.

    Over time people began to enjoy tea for the sheer pleasure and stimulation it provided. Green tea history, then, has an origin linked to the highest tier of Chinese society, which made it expensive and inaccessible to less-wealthy people. It was not until the fourteenth century that green tea became widespread throughout China, available or people from all walks of life, who’ve enjoyed it for its taste and medicinal qualities.
    The powerful anti-oxidant activity of green tea has been largely studied throughout the years, Green tea polyphenols have been shown to have anti-cancer activity in a number of laboratory studies, which could be mediated through an antioxidant or pro-oxidant mechanism of green tea polyphenols such as EGCG.

  • Resveratrol

    Download the Resveratrol Flyer

    Resveratrol occurs naturally in approximately 72 species of plants, and many foods, including grapes, cranberries, peanuts and blueberries, belonging among others, to class Cyperaceae, Dipterocarpaceae, Vitaceae and Gnetaceae. This powerful anti-oxidant is present inter alia in the roots of Polygonum cuspidatum, plant used in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine, the current primary commercial source of pure resveratrol.

    Polygonum cuspidatum, synonyms with Fallopia japonica and Reynoutria japonica, is a large species of herbaceous perennial plant of the knotweed and buckwheat family Polygonaceae.

    Resveratrol exerts various health benefits

    Intensive research efforts have been focused on the biological properties of resveratrol since it has been associated with so-called “French paradox”, observing that French people have a lower rate of coronary heart disease while consuming a diet higher in saturated fat. Besides the beneficia effects on the cardiovascular system, resveratrol also exerts anti-inflammatory effects, inhibits the excessive fat accumulation in adipose tissue and inhibits the growth of cancer cells, by acting as an antiproliferative and proapoptotic agent.

  • Ginkgo

    Download the Ginkgo Flyer

    Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is the world’s oldest living tree, dating back about 250 million years. Ginkgo leaves have been used in traditional Chinese medicine to support the respiratory system for about 500 years.
    Ginkgo is one of the most studied plants today and widely used in modern medicine to address a variety of health issues. Ginkgo has the ability to reduce inflammation caused by various conditions.

    Authenticity is important for Ginkgo extract.

    The commercial market for Ginkgo extract has been seriously compromised by recent adulteration issues: There have been reports of adulteration of ginkgo leaf extracts standardized to both flavonol glycosides and terpene trilactones which demonstrated added rutin compounds, a common flavonol glycoside. Unfortunately, some ginkgo extracts may be able to “pass” chemical specification tests that measure only total flavonoid content. Other compounds are: genistein, quercetin, kaempferol, and isorhamnetin which can also be found in adulterated extracts. A secured source of raw materials and dedicated testing, guaranteeing the authenticity of Ginkgo leaf and the absence of added adulterant, is a key method in minimizing further adulteration.

  • Rhodiola Rosea

    Download the Rhodiola Rosea Flyer

    Rhodiola rosea L is a relatively rare and high-value medicinal plant that grows at high altitudes (up to 2280 m) in the arctic and mountainous regions throughout Europe, Asia and North America. In the course of evolution, R. rosea has adapted to the harsh conditions of high altitude (extreme cold, low oxygen, little rainfall, and intense irradiation from the sun) by producing a group of powerful protective compounds that have diverse beneficial effects in animals and humans.

    Rhodiola Rosea L., important in traditionally Chinese medicine

    Rhodiola Rosea L. has been traditionally
    used as an “adaptogen” for enhancing
    physical and mental performance and
    fighting stress in healthy population for
    centuries. In Middle Asia, R. rosea tea
    was the most effective treatment for
    cold and flu during severe Asian winters.
    Mongolian doctors prescribed it for tuberculosis and cancer. For centuries, only family members knew where to harvest the wild "golden roots" and the methods of extraction. Siberians secretly transported the herb down ancient trails to the Caucasian Mountains. Chinese Emperors sent expeditions to Siberia to bring back the "golden root" for medicinal preparations.

    Through decades of research, scientists identified up to 50 species of Rhdoiola, of all the Rhodiola species, R. rosea has been the predominant subject of phytochemical, animal, and human studies. The pharmacological activity of R. rosea crude extract is related to many compounds, such as salidroside, tyrosol, rosavin, and other phenolic compounds.

    A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. Traditional Chinese Medicine has used mushrooms for centuries to cure and heal health conditions. There are over 200 species of mushrooms in China that are used to practice healing.

    Introduction

    Mushrooms are “sponges” and absorb everything including water, soil and air. Careful cultivation is key to securing a good source of raw material, pure and free from unwanted compounds. Our mushrooms are grown in a controlled and clean environment where the quality of water is thoroughly monitored and the wood chips on which they grow. are sourced from sustainable forests, especially planted for this purpose. The mushrooms are grown in greenhouses with natural lighting and ventilation that is provided by mountain breezes. These steps enable the entire farming process to consistently deliver extremely high quality mushrooms from a pristine and remote environment.

    Mushroom extracts

    The mushroom, or fruit body, is the organism’s final form. It contains desirable, healthy compounds, like β-glucans, which the organism worked so hard to produce. The fruit body is a significant source of nutrition and active compounds. Mycelium are like the roots of the mushroom. They are very light, thin, wispy, almost like spider webs.

    Mycelium also contain beneficial compounds, like β-glucans, however their purpose is to channel their collective resources into producing the actual mushroom. TCM and the bulk of currently available scientific studies are built around the active compounds in mushroom bodies. BWN’s mushroom products are mainly extracts from mushroom bodies that are well known in traditional Chinese medicine.

  • Panax Ginseng

    Download the Ginseng Flyer

    China has a long history of Panax Ginseng cultivation. Since the beginning of the Qin dynasty, in 221 BC, China has developed and refined its knowledge of Panax Ginseng.

    We apply this expertise throughout our supply chain, from seeding to cultivation, and to the art of securing the very best from the plant.

    Some interesting facts about our Panax Ginseng

    GACP(Good Agricultural and Collection Practices) with BWN Agronomists: In the remote regions of Jilin and Heilongjiang of China, farming partners grow Panax Ginseng along with the support of our agronomists. They weave together inherited, ancient knowhow and modern agronomic practice to grow the purest Panax Ginseng under GACP (Good Agricultural and Collection Practices).

    Seeding & Cultivation: Our farmers are descended from a handful of Chinese families who have passed down closely guarded ginseng farming through their lineage. The plants start in a very unique and natural way which requires birds to consume and digest the ginseng seeds. Through digestion and passing of the seeds, germination is enhanced and cultivation highly successful. Farmers patiently tend to seedlings for at least 4-5 years as they grow into mature roots with abundant phytoactives (Ginsenosides) which deliver significant health benefits.

    Stem & Year: 5-year-old Panax Ginseng Roots are ready for harvest. Do you know how to recognize a 5 years Panax Ginseng Roots? 5-year-old root should have 4 stem scars; one stem scar appears for every year of growth after the first year.
