Recognized as one of the most important fruits in Ayurvedic practice, Indian gooseberry (also known as amla) has been used for thousands of years as an effective detoxifier and rejuvenator. Capros® is a multi-patented Indian gooseberry extract standardized to a minimum 60% bioactive tannin concentration. This super-concentrated extract has an amazing oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) with which no other "superfruit' can compare.

One characteristic that makes Capros so uniquely effective at scavenging free radicals is that it acts as a cascading antioxidant. This means that in addition to its initial antioxidant activity, its metabolites also act as antioxidants. The net result is that instead of one antioxidant, you get a cascade of successive antioxidants as the tannins are metabolized in the body. This cascade puts Capros above all other superfruits, with nearly twice the ORAC rating of acai and approximately 17 times that of pomegranate. And by initiating a cascade of distinct antioxidant compounds, Capros is able to quench peroxyl, peroxynitrite, hydroxyl, superoxide and singlet oxygen free radicals while prolonging the activity of other antioxidants like vitamin C. Capros also acts as a chelator of transition metals, protecting the body from iron and copper-induced oxidative stress.

Unlike other Indian gooseberry supplements on the market, which have not been subjected to scientific scrutiny, Capros is supported by multiple US and international patents as well as seven peer-reviewed studies on cardiovascular health alone. Capros has been shown to promote endothelial function, thereby supporting healthy arteries and blood vessels. Beneficial effects on lipid profiles and other key cardiovascular biomarkers such as CRP have also been recorded.

Researchers believe that the effectiveness of Capros shown in published studies suggests a unique opportunity for dietary cardiovascular support. Unlike other popular heart-healthy supplements like essential fatty acids (omega-3s), Capros is water soluble, stable, free of side effects and carries no known contraindications, meaning it can be safely added to almost any health program regardless of current diet, supplement or medication use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOSEBERRY GONE WILD I have used Amla (Indian Gooseberry) powder in one of my regular health cocktails for quite some time. I consider it one of the elite superfoods. I go out of my way to buy it. I have read many glowing reports about its excellence as a contributor to a high quality diet. I check regularly to see if Swanson has added a quality food-grade Amla powder that I could buy along with my regular Swanson orders, and include in my 'cocktail.' Alas, Swanson does not have the powder form I need, but I did come across this Ultra Indian Gooseberry concentrated nourishment in capsule form. Soooooo, leaving nothing to chance, I got these capsules, and I take 1 or 2 with my 'cocktail' that includes the Amla powder. I like the ultimate in nutritional power / productivity; I think adding this GOOSEBERRY GONE WILD Ultra capsule product to my regimen gives me that extra plus I always like to have. . . . Like having a couple of really, really good olives in a good Martini makes it better. Works for me.

Q: Why does the color and smell seem to be different than my last order?

A: Natural color variations can occur from batch to batch. Botanical ingredients have a distinct and earthy odor noticeable after opening the bottle.
