Swanson Ultra XanthoVital—Xanthohumol Hop Extract with 200x the Antioxidant Potential of Resveratrol!

SWANSON: Dr. Langer, everyone knows about resveratrol and its original discovery as a component in red wine. Xanthohumol has a similar history, but it isn't well known. Tell us about it.

Dr. Langer: Xanthohumol is a nutrient that I have been interested in for many years. It's certainly one of the most extraordinary antioxidants ever discovered, and after decades of research it's finally become commercially available. Xanthohumol has a history similar to resveratrol in that, while resveratrol was originally identified in red wine, Xanthohumol is found in beer. And while resveratrol comes from the grapes that make the wine, Xanthohumol comes from hops. But unlike wine, which can contain significant levels of antioxidants, beer does not retain beneficial levels of Xanthohumol; you'd literally have to drink gallons of beer to get the same amount of Xanthohumol found in one capsule of XanthoVital.™

SWANSON: How does Xanthohumol work?

Dr. Langer: Like many dietary antioxidants, Xanthohumol is a flavonoid. In addition to other benefits, flavonoids scavenge and neutralize free radicals. Everything we do creates oxidative stress and metabolic waste. Exercise, digestion and even breathing cause the release of free radicals. Antioxidants help us keep these free radicals in check so that we are not overwhelmed by what many scientists believe to be the underlying cause of aging. Xanthohumol is by far the most promising natural antioxidant flavonoid I've found in scientific literature.

SWANSON: Can you tell us about some of the research on Xanthohumol and why you consider it to be such a promising supplement?

Dr. Langer: Xanthohumol may be new in supplement form, but it's not new to scientists. Over 198 published studies show Xanthohumol's potential to assist in a variety of biological functions. The most important research shows that Xanthohumol is up to 200 times more powerful than resveratrol. Evidence suggests that not only is Xanthohumol more bioavailable, it's more active so you get greater benefit by taking less.

A lot of the research has been experimental, and those interested can find these papers through online resources such as The evidence suggests that Xanthohumol functions not only as a remarkable antioxidant but also as a powerful metabolic agent that has the ability to affect cell signaling, which means that it can have a profound influence on a vast array of structures and functions throughout the body. This makes Xanthohumol unique among nutritional antioxidants.

Again, the most exciting benefit of Xanthohumol is its amazing antioxidant power—200 times that of resveratrol, six times that of popular citrus flavonoids and four times the strength of typical isoflavones. Those figures are nothing short of extraordinary.

SWANSON: What makes XanthoVital unique, and what can our customers expect to experience when they take it?

Dr. Langer: XanthoVital is produced in Homburg, in Saarland, Germany by the world's leading experts in research and extraction. Their proprietary extraction and concentration process yields what I consider to be an exceptional product in respect to purity and consistency.

Millions of us take antioxidants every day, not because of how they make us feel but because of the benefits we know they provide. Over time, we find that we simply feel good; we experience a secure sense of well-being. We feel healthy. Our energy levels are strong. Our minds are sharp and clear. The physical and mental stress that leads us to feel unwell doesn't seem to trouble us as much. I take XanthoVital every day and I feel great. I've been practicing medicine for 30 years and I recommend antioxidant supplementation to all of my patients. Thanks in part to XanthoVital I'm confident I'll be able to keep up my high level of activity for many years to come.

SWANSON: Thank you, Dr. Langer, for bringing us yet another natural health breakthrough to share with our Swanson® customers.

Dr. Langer: It's my pleasure, Lee. Because Xanthohumol is so efficient, I believe it's by far the most affordable natural antioxidant out there. At the low Swanson price, everyone should be taking XanthoVital every day.
