3i Concentrate benefit areas supported by studies:


  • Cardiovascular Support & At the molecular level, the effects of cardiovascular protection
  • Maintains Blood Pressure: are mediated through interaction with nitric oxide metabolism and inhibition of angiotensin. Polyphenols improve blood vessel endothelial function, increasing
    vasodilation (lowering blood pressure- anti-hypertension) protecting against
    developing chronic cardiovascular conditions [39, 53-56].
  • Improves Oxygen Transport: Antioxidants protect the mitochondria and bodily tissues from oxidative injury by free radical production enhancing mitochondrial biogenesis and optimizing respiratory function [20, 23, 39, 57].
  • Better Gut Biome: Polyphenols are demonstrated to increase the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal microbiome. Oxidative stress disrupts the intestinal epithelial
    barrier and increases permeability. Persistent oxidative stress can damage and alter the microbe balance, promoting disease. Antioxidants, such as those
    found in MLG-50, have been shown effective in restoring balance, attenuating
    intestinal damages and maintaining GI tract health [42, 58-62].
  • Regulates Energy Homeostasis: Polyphenols regulate glucose uptake in muscle and ATP production in the mitochondria, maintaining optimal nutrient transport and energy levels throughout the body [2, 23, 34, 55, 57, 63, 64].
  • Neurogenerative Health: Polyphenols play an important role in the protection of neuron loss by preventing inflammation and mitochondrial oxidative damage.
  • Polyphenols have also been shown to have beneficial effects on age-related cognitive and motor deficits, memory loss, mitochondrial oxidative stress, restoration of mitochondrial membrane potential, mitochondrial function and ATP synthesis [11, 22, 65-69].
