FAQ

Activated Phenolics and APSKIN

 

What are “Activated Phenolics™”?

Activated Phenolics are powerful phenolic antioxidants that can help protect your well-being. They are derived from apples alone via a patented, water-only process. This process is used only by one manufacturer, Renovatio.

 

What parts of the apple are used to make Activated Phenolics?

The whole apple is used, except the seeds. The peel and the flesh have the best profile to achieve the highest potency and broadest spectrum of phenolic antioxidants. Apple fibres are used to provide bulk to both the powder and Apple A Day tablets.

 

What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other natural entities. They help protect human body cells from the formation of free radicals, which can harm your cells.

 

What are phenolic antioxidants?

Phenolic antioxidants are molecules that help stop free radicals. Free radicals are molecules with one or more unpaired electrons. The free radicals try to take electrons from normal molecules in cells, thus destabilising them.

Phenolic antioxidants give electrons to free radicals, stabilising them without destabilising themselves.

 

What’s so bad about free radicals?

Free radicals can break down healthy cells by stealing electrons from the healthy cell’s molecules, actually damaging a cell’s DNA.

This can lead to cellular inflammation and result in degenerative diseases, immunity issues, and general poor health.

 

What’s in Activated Phenolics?

Each serving of Activated Phenolics contains the power of 2 kilograms of apples. That’s all there is: highly concentrated apple goodness, including the antioxidants, made only with water, not chemicals.

 

Who could benefit from Activated Phenolics?

Everyone in the family. Activated Phenolics are appropriate for both young and old.

 

How are these antioxidants “activated”?

The unique water-only extraction process for Activated Phenolics is believed to make its phenolics more “active” in your body than phenolics in other antioxidant supplements.

 Many other supplements use chemical extraction, which can decrease the effectiveness of antioxidants. Activated Phenolics are extracted with only water.

 

How do phenolic antioxidants stop free radicals?

One way phenolic antioxidants suppress free radicals is by donating electrons to a molecule, stabilising it. Another way phenolic antioxidants work is by inhibiting enzymes that help generate free radicals.

Phenolic antioxidants are often more ‘bioavailable’ to our bodies than regular antioxidants.

 

What does “bioavailable” mean?

“Bioavailability” simply defines how easy it is for your body to use a substance.

You may absorb as much as 90% of the value of the antioxidants in Activated Phenolics compared to around 5% for some other antioxidant supplements. That’s because of the water-based extraction process.

 

Where do free radicals come from?

You are exposed to free radical molecules all the time. For instance, you can take in free radicals because of pollution in the air we breathe or an unhealthy diet.

 

If I eat fruit and vegetables will I get phenolic antioxidants naturally?

Most fruit and vegetables contain phenolic antioxidants. Some will be helpful, while others won’t be absorbed by your body and will pass through. Supplements may help your body process more phenolic antioxidants.

The unique, water-based, and patented technology used to make Activated Phenolics extracts phenolic antioxidants safely (without chemicals). It compounds them in a way that makes them easily absorbed by your body.

 

What does Activated Phenolics taste like?

Activated Phenolics tastes slightly sweet and has a light natural apple flavour.

 

How do I take the Activated Phenolics?

You can take Activated Phenolics in either tablet or powder form.

The powder can be mixed into water, diluted to your taste. You can also mix it in your favourite drink, including teas, smoothies, juices, soft drinks, or coffee.

Activated Phenolics powder can also be sprinkled on or used in an ingredient in hot or cold food.

 

Are Activated Phenolics organic?

Up to 80% of the apples in Activated Phenolics are organic. The supply of organic apples is not large enough to completely meet production needs.

Activated Phenolics’ maker, Renovatio, hopes to use 100% organic apples in the future.

Activated Phenolic products are tested for pesticide residue and heavy metals to ensure they are compliant with all regulations.

 

Is there added sugar?

There is no added sugar, only apples.

 

Are there any side effects?

Consult with your doctor before taking any supplement. This is especially true if you are pregnant, lactating, or taking medicines, You should also consult with your doctor if you are allergic to apples, which are the only active ingredient in Activated Phenolics.

 

What if Activated Phenolic powder clumps?

The Activated Phenolic powder is extremely dry, more than 15-times dryer than flour.

This means that it will absorb moisture from the atmosphere very easily and may form clumps over time. There is nothing wrong with the powder if it clumps. The phenolic content is not affected and it is still just as good to take.

To minimise clumping, store Activated Phenolics powder in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight.

Also make sure you replace/seal the lid after use. If your location is humid, store your Activated Phenolics in the refrigerator after opening.

What is the active ingredient in APSKIN?

What is the preservative in APSKIN?
