Los Angeles, CA, October 12, 2006 — Los Angeles-based Jarrow Formulas has introduced Daily 5™, a certified organic mix of high quality fruits, vegetables and greens with an ORAC value greater than 1120 per serving. Daily 5™ is rich in antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, other polyphenols and chlorophyll and has no added sugars or artificial flavors.
Daily 5™ features flavonoids and other polyphenols (in berries) that are important for reducing oxidative stress and supporting healthy cell development, cardiovascular function and vision. Additionally, Daily 5™ contains phytonutrients such as sulforaphane and indoles (in cruciferous vegetables) and ellagic acid (in strawberries) that promote healthy cell function and development. Daily 5™ also contains anthocyanins (in berries), which are important phytonutrients for vision, capillary and circulatory health.
According to Kevin Connolly, Ph.D., Director, Product Development and Scientific Affairs for Jarrow Formulas, the value of Daily 5™ is in its diversity. “By including ingredients from a wide sampling of different classes of organic fruits and vegetables, Daily 5™ can offer distinct health benefits over greens-only or berry-only formulations,” he says.
“Fruits and vegetables provide numerous health benefits,” says Peilin Guo, MS, RD, Vice President of Functional Foods and Asian Market Development for Jarrow Formulas. “However, the typical American diet lacks these plant foods. Daily 5™ is a convenient way to boost the daily requirement for 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables. All the ingredients in Daily 5™ are under stringent quality control to guarantee their freshness and the exclusion of environmental contaminants. Daily 5™ is a safe, nutrient-rich, delicious, certified organic product.”
The suggested retail price (SRP) for Jarrow Formulas’’ Daily 5™ is $39.95 for a container containing 6.3 ounces (180 grams) of powder.
