Ceylon Black Tea
Made from the fermented leaves of the Camellia sinensis shrub, there is a rich history of use and much data on the health promoting properties of Ceylon Tea. Some interesting facts:

A study from the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed that drinking 30 ounces (about 4 cups) of black tea daily reduced bad LDL cholesterol by 11%. In another study, the same amount of tea improved blood vessel function in heart patients by 50%.

A study published in the journal Circulation found that drinking more than two cups of tea a day decreased the risk of death following a heart attack by 44 percent. Consuming just two cups a day decreased the risk of death by almost a third. Many studies also suggest that black tea also may fight cancer.

Another study on the chemicals in black tea, called polyphenols, published in the 2005 issue of the Journal of Environmental Pathology, Toxicology and Oncology, found they reverse cancer-causing changes of DNA in cells lining the mouth.

Also, Rutgers University researchers have found a compound in black tea that may target and kill colorectal cancer cells without harming surrounding healthy tissue. The researchers found that when the black tea compound polyphenol was added to a culture containing matched cancerous and normal colon cells, all of the cancer cells were killed while the normal cells were unaffected. The polyphenol is believed to target the COX-2 gene, which is typically correlated with the incidence of colon cancer.

New research from the Journal of the American College of Nutrition suggests a one-gram drink of black tea may have the potential to stimulate an insulin response and reduce blood sugar levels.

Polyphenols in tea also suppress the bacterial enzyme that triggers plaque accumulation.

Organic Pomegranate Juice
Each bottle of Sundance® Organic Life Superfruit blends contain at least 30g of organic pomegranate juice. This fruit contains naturally high levels of polyphenols – compounds that aid in the fight against various health maladies ranging from premature aging to certain types of cancer. Some interesting facts:

A study in Israel found that Pomegranate reduced the risk of atherosclerosis. Other recent studies relating to the fruit have uncovered that pomegranates have a positive effect on heart health, prostate cancer and arthritis.

Pomegranate juice may contain almost three times the total antioxidants compared with the same quantity of green tea or red wine. Research has shown it to have potent antiatherogenic effects in healthy humans. In addition, pomegranate juice has been shown to inhibit serum angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). ACE inhibitors prevent certain enzymes in the body from constricting blood vessels. In addition to high levels of free radical fighting polyphenols and other antioxidants, pomegranate also contains high concentrations of ellagic acid. Clinical tests have shown that ellagic acid may inhibit the growth of cervical cancer cells and arrest the growth of cancer.

Regular consumption of pomegranate juice may also enhance the quality and mobility of sperm, suggests a new study published in Clinical Nutrition. The antioxidant-rich fruit has been linked to improved heart health, and claims that it may offer protection against prostate cancer, Alzheimer's, and may slow cartilage loss in arthritis. It is these antioxidants, and particularly compounds like punicalagin, which accounts for about half of the fruit's antioxidant ability, that are the cause of these proposed health benefits.

Pomegranate extract, high in ellagitannins, appears to concentrate in the prostate after administration and protect against prostate cancer cell growth in mice, according to recent research reported in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry.

Organic Cane Sugar
We use Florida Crystals® organic cane sugar, which is the only certified organic cane sugar grown and milled in the U.S. These sugars are carefully milled on the day of harvest, with one simple crystallization. The juice is pressed from sun-ripened sugarcane, washed, filtered, and crystallized – right on the farm. Our organic cane sugar is minimally processed thereby retaining more of the natural flavor of sun-sweetened sugarcane.
