Bonavitas Recovery Drink Demonstrates Record Level of Antioxidants

PROVO, UT (May 18, 2011) — Bonavitas announced today the results of clinical testing to determine the total ORACFN value of R12, the company’s soon-to-launch recovery drink. According to the official report from Brunswick Laboratories, R12 boasts a superior total ORACFN value of more than 46,400 umol TE/100 grams per serving, which is almost three times the ORAC value of a leading muscle recovery drink made with cacao.

ORAC, or Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is the term used in the wellness industry to indicate a food’s antioxidant capacity. The higher the ORAC value of a particular food (measured in umol TE/100g.), the more antioxidants it contains.

Its uniquely high ORACFN value places R12 at the top of the list in natural energy and recovery drinks. In fact, R12’s name is a nod to its 12 proven sources of antioxidants and superfoods, including moringa oleifera, neem, lemon, lime and much more.

“R12’s unequalled ORACFN value is the direct result of the rainbow of superfoods we’ve used to formulate what we consider to be the best recovery drink on the market,” said Alexandra Paul, scientist and inventor of the Bonavitas line of all-natural nutritional beverages. “For example, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has confirmed the benefits of cinnamon in reducing the risk factors associated with many diseases. R12 has one full teaspoon of cinnamon in every serving.”

R12 is designed to improve muscle recovery and promote good overall health for everyone from elite athletes to muscle and fitness enthusiasts, amateur and professional bodybuilders – and anyone else who is feeling the effects of a hectic schedule.
