Saberry, a patent pending natural extract of Amla (Indian gooseberry) recently described in a peer-reviewed publication, is an antioxidant super fruit used in the Ayurvedic tradition as a ‘rasayana’, or tonic, in multiple compositions to support general health maintenance and the management of various health conditions. It is a rejuvenating herb known to increase resistance to stress, making it ideal for anti-aging cosmetic products. Sabinsa discovered new standardized bio-markers prior to introducing the product in January 2009. Saberry is a light colored powder and is processed from carefully chosen, fresh Indian gooseberries using proprietary technology to preserve efficacy.
Amla extract helps protect against the damaging effects of free radicals and heavy metal‐induced oxidative stress. It also helps control collagen metabolism, and has been found to possess significant potential as a UVA and UVB protectant. It has a long tradition of use improving the health of hair and scalp.
Saberry is a leader among water soluble phytonutrients in terms of broad spectrum antioxidant activity, showing a combined ORAC value of 358,600 micromol TE/100g* (ORACTotal + NORAC), HORAC of 34,500 micromol CAE/100g* and SOAC value of 135,100 micromol VitE/100g*. *TE/g: Trolox Equivalent/100g, VitE/g: alpha-tocopherol Equivalent/100g, CAE/g: Caffeic Acid Equivalent/100g. Cumulative ORAC is the sum of the values of ORACTotal (hydrophilic and lipophilic Peroxyl Radical Absorbance Capacity), SORAC (Superoxide Radical Absorbance Capacity), NORAC (Peroxynitrite Radical Absorbance Capacity), HORAC (Hydroxyl Radical Absorbance Capacity) and SOAC (Singlet Oxygen Absorbance Capacity). These values were determined at Brunswick Labs, MA, using their state of the art techniques for evaluating the antioxidant potential of natural materials.
