Biomedical company Vivakor Inc. announced today the results of independent, third-party testing of its VivaBlend nutraceutical product. This product is a powerful extract developed by Vivakor scientists and is derived from over 18 highly bioactive fruits, vegetables and legumes. Through a proprietary formulation and extraction process, the company’s scientists created an optimum blend of super-oxidants, flavonoids and powerful plant phenolics.

The results from third-party testing show that VivaBlend contains a much higher level of antioxidants, phytochemicals and lipophilic antioxidants, from a wider array of plant sources, than its competitors. Lipophilic antioxidants penetrate the lipoprotein cell membrane more easily than other antioxidants and are therefore retained in the body longer (bioactive).

Scientists are still discovering the benefits of these potent natural chemicals in improved health and wellness. Data has shown, however, that different types of antioxidants and phytochemicals collectively may reduce the adverse effects of aging and may lessen the risk of developing a wide variety of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

Vivakor’s CEO and chief scientist, Dr. Tannin Fuja, stated, “We are very pleased with the performance of VivaBlend in this independent testing. Many products can claim high levels of antioxidants, but these data confirm that VivaBlend contains high levels of bioactive antioxidants and phytochemicals froma balanced and diverse array of plant sources. These results are expected to give VivaBlend an advantage in the multi-billion dollar antioxidant supplement market.”
