AppleActiv offers a convenient way for health-conscious consumers to add whole-food nutrients to their diet. While most people know about apples’ nutritional punch, few are aware that apple peel contains up to six times more nutrients than the flesh. When dried and powdered, the nutrients are more concentrated and easily absorbed. With the dried apple peel powder of AppleActiv, the antioxidants, polyphenols and flavonoids of organic apples can be available in a convenient daily dose.
A neutral-tasting dry powder, AppleActiv works in food applications such as supplements, bars, dry powders, smoothies and marinades. AppleActiv contains no additional preservatives, artificial colors, dyes, or additives, and is certified organic.
“While AppleActiv is a unique, new ingredient to the supplement market, it’s sourced from the fruit customers have known and trusted longer than any other -- apples,” said Lorraine Leahy, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and President of AppleActives. “Manufacturers who are tired of the same old ‘super-fruit’ claims now have something new and exciting to offer their customers.”
AppleActiv supports a variety of age-related conditions and can be blended with other ingredients to address a range of condition-specific health concerns, including joint health, cardiovascular health, cognitive function, immune health, and healthy stress response. A recent 12-week clinical study on healthy people with moderate complaints of reduced joint range of motion and associated chronic discomfort found that subjects exhibited improved range of motion, reduction in joint discomfort and improvement in serum antioxidant protective status after daily consumption of DAPP.
