Science have finally started to realize how important the plant phytochemicals, including flavonoids and carotenoids, are to our health.
So what are flavonoids?
They are a class of nutrients that form part of a family called polyphenols and the plants make these polyphenols from the amino acid phenylalanine and acetate. The fruit and vegetables get their beautiful and bright colors from the flavonoids. They are also responsible for the astringent or tannic tastes of dry red wines, green tea and many herbs. There are about 20,000 flavonoids known today but only 4,000 have been chemically analyzed or tested, and 100 of them have been reseached thorougly.
The flavonoids are categorized into nine classes based on their chemical characteristics. They are powerful antioxidants. The flavonoids are involved in immune function, capillary and cerebral blood flow, platelet aggregation, enzyme activity, liver function, cholesterol and histamine metabolism and gene expression.

I supplement during the winter months when it is harder to obtain fresh and nutritious fruit and berries. I believe it is important to protect the body from antioxidant damage. As the body produces energy, it naturally generates free radicals. Free radical damage has been linked to many common health problems today, from heart disease to abnormal cell replication. Not two antioxidants are alike and they work on different tissues in the body. One may work best in the heart while another may help protect the liver. Antioxidants support the glandular system in maintaining normal blood sugar, and also to help support the nervous system, improve mental health and fight cellular damage. Therefore I believe in feeding the body with a wide variety of antioxidants like what's in the Thai-Go juice.
I have become extremely fond of liquid nutrients lately since they are so convenient. Liquid supplements can easily be given to the children or added to a protein shake or a smoothie. It saves times from handing out a lot of pills from different bottles and they are readily absorbed by the body.
Thai-Go was formulated by scientists who studied many potential ingredients high in antioxidant activity. After careful research and testing they came up with the elite of available ingredients, and combined them in a propietary blend of eleven fruits and herbs with very high ORAC result.
The blend was formulated to include powerful antioxidant bioflavonoids. The group of antioxidant compounds in Thai-Gone enhance vitamin C absorption and are needed for the maintenance of collagen and capillary walls. They also boost a strong immune stimulatory activity. Thai-Go combines three powerful fruits from the Orient with eight other fruits and herbs. Mangosteen, wolfberry, sea buckhorn, applephenon, blueberry, concord grape, grape seed, grape skin, red grape, green tea, and raspberry are all the ingredients in the powerful Thai-Go.
So what makes Thai-Go superior to the other brands on the market?
Thai-Go has twice the ORAC antioxidant capacity compared to its closest competitior, an independent lab, Brunswick, tested several different brands and Thai-Go ended up with the strongest antioxidant power. Its unsurpassed in bioflavonoid content and an independent study showed that Thai-Go is 3.1 times stronger than its closest competitor in stimulating the immune system.
