How Do We Capture These Nutrients?
While most other companies spray their products with maltodextrin to make them taste better and superficially increase other marketable aspects, destruction to the plant's enzyme occurs reducing its effectiveness and nutrient value.
The powder we retain within out capsules are sourced from full-grown Aguaje trees and are acquired when the fruit itself has fully ripened. This guarantees the full nutrient spectrum within the fruit. The fruit is then:
Dried at low temperatures, Ground into a powder and Packaged within our fully edible capsules to maintain its enzyme structure and nutrient value.
