What are super fruits? What can they do for your health? Discover the nutritional value found in the grape seed extract and vitamin C in Proflavanol C100.



Plants are living pharmacies, producing thousands of substances beneficial to human health. There are several major categories of these phytonutrients, including the plant pigments called bioflavonoids. While clearly exhibiting antioxidant capabilities that offer protection from oxidative stress, bioflavonoids may be even more important for their ability to modulate cell-signaling pathways. Among the many important cell- signaling functions that bioflavonoids influence are regulating the cell cycle, inhibiting cell proliferation, and producing detoxification enzymes.

Proanthocyanidins
Proanthocyanidins are a subclass of bioflavonoids found in blue and purple berries, purple grapes, and red wine, and they are available in relatively high concentrations in grape-seed extract. Research suggests a strong role for dietary bioflavonoids, including proanthocyanidins, in supporting and maintaining sound cardiovascular function. Epidemiological evidence of this connection begins with the observation that relatively low rates of heart disease exist in France, despite a diet high in saturated fat. This apparent “French paradox” has been attributed to the proanthocyanidins in the red wine consumed with most meals. Human clinical research has also shown that proanthocyanidins in red wine maintain healthy endothelial function.* Proanthocyanidins have been studied extensively in Europe and in the United States. Scientifically observed and documented benefits include the following:

• Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range*
• Helps retain healthy capillary strength and vascular function*
• Supports healthy immune function*
• Supports healthy peripheral circulation*

The Many Roles of Vitamin C
Vitamin C plays many important roles in the body, and because human bodies are incapable of manufacturing vitamin C, we must rely on our diet to satisfy our daily requirement. The amount of vitamin C needed daily for optimal performance is directly related to individual ingestion; absorption; utilization; metabolism; excretion; work environment; and physical, mental, and environmental stress. Everyone has a different biochemistry and unique lifestyle. While vitamin C deficiency is rare today, we may still not receive sufficient amounts for our individual health needs. proflavanol C100 provides optimal vitamin C protection with a unique blend of mineral ascorbates that provides higher levels of vitamin C in the blood than from equal amounts of ascorbic acid.*

Critical to good health, vitamin C supports many important functions in the body. First, it is essential for collagen synthesis. Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the body and is essential for staying healthy and strengthening muscles, teeth, bones, skin, and blood vessels. Without adequate vitamin C, there is inadequate collagen.* Under normal conditions, the RDA of 75–90 mg per day meets the requirement for maintaining collagen. But we also need vitamin C to quench free radicals, reduce lipid oxidation, and regenerate other antioxidants. It is a co-factor or co-substrate for many enzyme systems involved in such functions as ATP synthesis within mitochondria and hormone biosynthesis. Vitamin C can help retain cardiovascular health by supporting healthy adrenal function and healthy arterial wall integrity. And, vitamin C helps support a healthy immune system, which is the primary system responsible for defense of the human body.

You also need enough vitamin C to help protect the liver from environmental toxins and drug metabolites and to make carnitine, interferon, and prostaglandin E1. Thus, a daily dose of 75–90 mg is unlikely to be sufficient for everyone.*

Nutritional Hybrid Technology
proflavanol C100 employs USANA’s innovative Nutritional Hybrid Technology. This state-of-the-art approach to formula design and manufacture features bilayer tableting: the separation of various formula ingredients into two distinct tablet layers. Now, for the first time, previously distinct products can be joined into a single formula. Incompatible ingredients can be combined in a single tablet. And key nutritional ingredients can be visually highlighted in distinct tablet layers.

Why Proflavanol® C100?
With USANA’s unique formulation, proflavanol C100 bioflavonoid supplement combines the highest quality grape-seed extract with the free-radical quenching power of vitamin C, giving you an important tool in the quest for lifelong good health. Laboratory studies done at USANA confirm that, when used together, these ingredients provide significantly better protection against the oxidative modification of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) than would be predicted from the sum of their individual effects.*
Q: What’s the difference between MySmart™Shakes and Nutrimeal™?
A: MySmartShakes are the cleaner, simpler products a growing segment of the population are clamoring for. They don’t have any sugar and are packed with six grams of fat—mainly from coconut oil—to provide the beneficial balance of macronutrients to combat today’s carbohydrate-heavy diets. MySmartShakes also give you the ability to personalize your shake. You’ll have a variety of flavors and proteins to choose from, instead of being stuck with only a few options.

Q: What do the numbers on my shake bags mean?
A: Each part of the MySmartFoods line is numbered to guide you through the process. So making your perfectly personalized MySmartShake is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Choose your protein base—plant, soy, or whey
2. Choose your USANA MySmart™ Flavor Optimizer—dark chocolate, cappuccino, peach mango, banana, orange cream, or stick with the mild vanilla flavor of the base
3. Add in a booster, like USANA MySmart™Shake Protein Plus

Q: Will USANA be adding more flavors in the future?
A: Yes. Over the next few years, we plan to roll out more flavors. Keep checking on The Hub for more exciting MySmartFoods products.

Q: How will these new products affect the RESET™ Kit?
A: We’re changing the RESET Kit to MySmart™Start, and it will feature the MySmartFoods line. This means you’ll experience more personalization with a program that will help you start living a healthier lifestyle.

Q: Are MySmartFoods low glycemic?
A: We can’t talk about MySmartFoods and the glycemic index, but they do have a low-glycemic impact on your body. Here’s why:

There simply isn’t enough sugar to determine a glycemic-index score experimentally. In other words, they are naturally low glycemic in the same way that nuts or fish are. They contain too few carbohydrates to be tested, and their influence on blood glucose would be insignificant. So, while we can’t measure the glycemic index, of course they will help support your low-glycemic diet.

Q What went into the development of these new products?
A: We recognized a desire among consumers for simple, pure products. They want ingredients they can pronounce and easily understand. That means cleaner labels and ingredients that are closer to nature. One thing I was taught was to simply look at the length of an ingredient deck—almost always, shorter is better.

This was also an opportunity to add in more beneficial fats—mainly from coconut oil—to provide a better balance of macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein, and fats. For a long time, the story was that fats were bad. When you dig into the scientific literature, that’s just not the case.

Q: So what’s going on with the saturated fat in the products? A: Fats are a vital nutrient, especially for our cells. And the type of fats found in coconut oil—which is what we use in these products—has quite a few health benefits. It’s been shown to support healthy metabolism, and contribute to satiety. There’s also evidence coconut oil supports healthy triglyceride levels and maintains good cholesterol levels already in the normal range.*

Q: How will the shakes and bars benefit my overall diet?
A: That’s a great question. We are very good at talking about “essential” micronutrients—the vitamins and minerals that are essential to sustain life. However, we often forget there are “essential” macronutrients as well. MySmartFoods offer both essential and beneficial macronutrients designed to help bring our overall diet back into balance.

Around the world, we are consuming more calories coming mostly from refined sugars, and more specifically, from snacking. The primary goal of these new products is to help restore balance in our diet, and combine them with the USANA® Essentials™ to provide the essential macro- and micro-nutrition our bodies need to thrive.

Q: Will the products make me feel full longer?
A: Besides fat, it is well known and scientifically documented that increased amounts of fiber and protein will also help increase the overall sense of satiety and boost your metabolism. Just two of the many health benefits these macronutrients provide.
