Biotest Superfood contains 18 incredibly potent, freeze-dried super extracts of WHOLE fruits and vegetables and combines them in what Biotest believes is the perfect superfood. Each extract was chosen for their almost drug-like properties, and put together in one incredibly potent, incredibly concentrated, incredibly easy-to-use powdered supplement.
No fillers, no extra flavoring agents, no sweeteners, nothing extra — just pure superfood.
Here are the ingredients:
Wild Blueberry (1.5% anthocyanin)
Raspberry (20% allagic acid, 0.7% anthocyanins)
Acai Berry (1.5% total phenolic acids, 1% anthocyanins)
Coffee Berry (50% total phenolic acids)
Pomegranate (40% ellagic acid)
Broccoli Sprout (5000 ppm sulforophane)
Spinach (700 ppm lutein)
Wasabi (20% glucosinolates)
Wild Yam (20% diosgenin)
Green Tea (95% total polyphenols, 65% total catechins, 40% EGCG)
Orange (40% vitamin C)
Watermelon (1000 ppm lycopene)
While you're no doubt familiar with many of these fruits and vegetables, some might be a mystery. Biotest based their choices on a number of factors:
• A broad spectrum of carotenoids and phytochemicals, including the prostate protective lycopene and the vision protective lutein.
• Vegetables that contain estrogen-fighting indoles.
• Vegetables that have potent cancer-fighting ability.
• The major factor in many of their choices, however, was the incredibly powerful antioxidant capabilities of these ingredients as measured by something called the ORAC scale.
ORAC Scale Measures Antioxidant Potency
The ORAC scale is a standardized test used by the USDA to measure the Total Antioxidant Potency of foods and nutritional supplements. The ORAC provides a precise way of measuring the power of specific foods or supplements to neutralize free radicals in the body. The term stands for "Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, and the measurement is expressed as ORAC units per 100 grams of a given compound.
For instance, the USDA determined an "average serving of fruits AND vegetables" has an ORAC rating of between 400 and 500.
As you might guess, all fruits and vegetables aren't created equal. Some, like coffee berry, acai berry, and goji berry, while not exactly household commodities, are off the chart on the ORAC scale.
So just what is the ORAC rating of just 5 grams (about 1 teaspoon) of Biotest's Superfood? Are you sitting down?
That means that just ONE TEASPOON of Biotest's Superfood is equivalent to eating between 10 and 12 average servings of fruits and vegetables!
Freeze Drying is the Key
We know, you're skeptical. How can one teaspoon be equivalent to that many servings of fruits and vegetables?
Actually, it's not implausible at all. Each of the ingredients in Biotest's Superfood is freeze dried.
Freeze drying is a process by which nothing but the water is removed from the fruits and vegetables. Each product is individually quick frozen so all water turns to solid ice. It's then subjected to warm temperature and a vacuum so that the water turns to vapor and is essentially sucked out of the fruit or vegetable, leaving everything intact.
That means the pigments and phytochemicals have been well preserved. The product retains the identical phytochemical content, enzymatic activity, and bioactivity of fresh products. Furthermore, freeze-dried products have the longest ambient shelf life of any known drying process.
But what's equally important is what Biotest's Superfood product doesn't contain:
• No added sweetener, natural or artificial
• No food coloring
• No added flavoring
• No allergy-inducing grasses
• No Testosterone-lowering herbs (ie, licorice and bilberry)
• No seaweed, algae, or other faddish ingredients
• No added chemicals of any kind, just organically grown berries, fruits, and vegetables from 1,000 acres of privately owned land.
In fact, you'll find nothing in Superfood but sweet, fresh, nutrient-laden fruits and vegetables!
The Mild Berry-Tea Flavor Mixes with Anything
Because Biotest didn't add in flavoring or sweetening agents, maybe you're thinking that the product tastes like grass clippings. Relax. Superfood tastes like a mild berry tea; there's no need to mask the flavor.
You can easily just put a teaspoon of the product (about 5 grams) into a glass of water and drink it down. However, it works just as well in a protein shake, glass of juice, or even on your food; it's that easy.
While Superfood is incredibly valuable all on its own in ensuring your health and longevity, Biotest recommend throwing a teaspoon of it into your post-workout drink as that's likely the time when you need the most anti-oxidant protection.
Otherwise, use it as you might have once used those obsolete vitamin and mineral tablets: one teaspoon with breakfast or at bedtime.
Economics of Being Healthy
One more thing, just for you skeptics: you're probably wondering why someone hasn't done this before. Simple.
How much? Think about how much it would cost you to buy 10 to 12 servings of vegetables at the store every day. Think of the time it would take to prepare 10 to 12 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Think of the gas . . . gastric upset from ingesting 10 to 12 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
If you take all that into consideration, it's easy to see that the price of Superfood is a tremendous value.

(Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity Factor) is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities of foods when exposed to a free-radical challenge. The method was developed by the National Institute on Aging, a division of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, and measures the effects of both fat-soluble and water-soluble antioxidants. An ORAC value of 500 is approximately equivalent to the antioxidant capacity of one serving of fruit or vegetable.
