Commonly known as the vitamin B complex, there are eight B vitamins that help us stay energised throughout the day, supporting our active lifestyle. Out of the eight B vitamins, the AND contains four of them – B2, B6, niacin and folic acid.
They are also referred to as water soluble vitamins, and because they are not retained by our body, we need a regular intake of these vitamins.
Niacin is known to play the important role of assisting enzymes in the body to convert food into energy, allowing us to perform our daily activities. It is also said that about 60 – 70% of the energy required by our body is provided by the work of niacin.
“I can still go on.” The AND is specially formulated to carry you through obstacles with resilience and confidence.
Soybeans, packing a protein punch, are also known as “meat of the field”.
The AND contains a good balance of essential amino acids that cannot be synthesised by the body; it is a beauty and health beverage with amino acid score※2 of 100.
The soybeans are used as a raw material, and the soy peptides are derived from soybeans fermentation and enzymatic degradation. Peptides are formed when protein is broken down, and these peptides are made up of amino acids. Protein is made up of many blocks of amino acids, and is absorbed by the body after being digested and broken down. However, since peptides are already broken down, they are absorbed more easily by our body. It is said to be more effective than amino acid supplementation.
When one is on a diet or increases his/her physical activities, it is particularly easy to result in a shortage of amino acids. In times like these, the AND can be your best ally, supplementing you with the essential nutrients, supporting your quests for achieving beauty and vitality.
The AND supplements the essential nutrients that your body may lack; it is highly recommended for the hardworking people who need a vital charge before taking another step forward in life.
These brightly-coloured berries that grow under adverse conditions, have a refreshing taste and are known for their amazing adaptability and resilience. They can also be harnessed as a source of energy, giving us the healthy glow.
Native to the depths of the rainforests in Peru and the Amazon, the Cat’s Claw Vine is considered rare even in its habitats. The Cat’s Claw Vine is named after the tendril at the base of its leaf, which possesses hooks that look like a cat's claws. Putting the bark through hot water extraction and concentrating the result produces "AC-11※3 ", an ingredient which has recently received a lot of attention for its benefits. Rich in AC-11, the AND seeks to support your active and healthy lifestyle with this beneficial ingredient.
