At Zaca, our Japanese raisin tree extract is naturally grown on farms in South Korea and parts of eastern Asian. It is non-synthetic, rather naturally derived without chemical processes or preservatives. And no artificial flavors or sweeteners added.
Using a standardized process, we can assure you that every batch of our Zaca chewables has consistency in the Japanese raisin extract added and the benefits it provides. Without standardization of the Japanese raisin tree extract, which some brands do, you cannot have consistent results or reliability in the product.
In addition, a proprietary process is used to get the best Japanese raisin tree extract to include the most beneficial components of the plant, which encompasses the fruit, seeds and peduncle. Some products only include DHM (dihydromyricetin), but our extract includes numerous components that you may not be familiar with but that provide many of the synergistic benefits you might not receive anywhere else.
These additional benefitical components include quercetin, saponin derivatives, dammarane-type triterpene saponins hodulosides I – V, flavonoids hovenodulinol ,hovenitin I, (−)-catechin, hodulosides I, (+)-afzelechin, taxifolin, and myricetin, and ampelopsin (dihydromerycetin DHM). Note that if you buy hovenia dulcis extract, it's the same as buying japanese raisin tree extract, they are the same ingredient.
The Japanese raisin tree extract is then put into our tasty berry flavored chewables that you can take on-the-go when you need it most. Different to supplements that are pills, powders and drinks -- Zaca chewables give you results faster.
