Science Stuff from Kyani Ingredient and Nutrient Spotlight
Antioxidants are molecules that help protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Before we continue, here’s a quick overview of free radicals. Free radicals, known as oxidants, are molecules that have unpaired electrons (quick science recap: electrons are better in pairs). To put it simply for us non-science experts, these unstable molecules attach to other molecules, which causes damage to cells, proteins, and DNA. Free radicals often come from a variety of everyday sources, including environmental toxins, processed foods, tissue trauma, and more. That’s where antioxidants come in. Antioxidants bind with these oxidants so they no longer seek out cells in the body. Antioxidants come naturally in many foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. Antioxidant-rich foods have been associated with improved heart health.
Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that is produced naturally in microalgae. It is responsible for the bright-red pigment often seen in marine life like salmon, lobster, and shrimp. These carotenoids have various health properties. Even more, astaxanthin is significantly more potent in other nutrients, including beta-carotene and vitamin C. One of astaxanthin’s main benefits is its ability to support heart health by helping fight free radicals in the body. This powerful antioxidant also supports cognitive and vision health and even supports healthy skin. You can get astaxanthin in your diet when you eat seafood such as salmon, red trout, or shrimp. But most of us can’t eat these foods every day.
Ashwagandha is an evergreen shrub and apoptogenic herb that is native to Asia and Africa.
Let’s take a quick pause here. First, what exactly are adaptogens? Adaptogens are compounds from special plant species that help balance stress levels. As they grow, these plants produce specific chemicals that help them survive in harsh conditions. These same chemicals work in the body to help enable a healthy stress response. In scientific terms, ashwagandha works by supporting the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis to modulate stress hormones and neurotransmitters. Or in other words, it helps balance your body to better respond to physical, mental, and environmental stress. This benefit-packed compound also offers cell support and features antioxidants to support your body’s response to oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Even more, ashwagandha may also have cognitive benefits, including support for reaction time, memory, task performance, and attention. You can incorporate adaptogens like ashwagandha into your daily routine by adding them to food, and drinks, or taking them as supplements.
Bacopa, also known as Brahmi, is a plant that has been used for centuries for everything from cognitive function to supporting stress management. Bacopa contains powerful compounds that may have antioxidant effects, support a healthy inflammatory response, and neutralize free radicals. Even more, bacopa is recognized for its powerful cognitive benefits. Studies suggest this ingredient supports brain chemicals involved in thinking, learning, and memory. In fact, it works similarly to ashwagandha in ways that support stress management. The edible leaves of bacopa plants can be eaten raw or added to various food dishes. It is also available as a supplement.
Beetroot (Beta vulgaris) is the root portion of a beet plant, and it is commonly consumed as a vegetable. Beetroot’s therapeutic uses go back to Greek and Roman times, where they likely originated. Beets have a vibrant deep red color due to the high betalain content, a potent antioxidant found in red and purple fruits and vegetables. Beetroot is also a rich source of other antioxidants, such as carotenoids, flavonoids, and phenolic acids. It is also high in iron and vitamins A, B6, and B9. With its powerful combination of antioxidants, vitamins A and B6, and iron, beetroot may help protect the liver from oxidative stress while supporting its ability to remove toxins from the body. Additionally, beetroot is rich in folate, or vitamin B9, which helps cell development and function. Folate has also been shown to support blood and heart health. Even more, beetroots are also high in nitrates, which turn into Nitric Oxide in the body. As you might have heard while experiencing our many nitro-powered products, Nitric Oxide is key for promoting blood flow and providing oxygen to muscles and tissues. This helps boost performance, optimize digestion, support blood pressure, and much more.
Blue ginger (Alpinia galanga) is a member of the ginger family, as you might have guessed. This flowering plant, which is also related to turmeric, has been used to support health and consumed in food or tea in Asia for centuries. Blue ginger helps amplify and sustain energy from caffeine. It has also been shown to support mental performance and help mitigate fatigue, especially when paired with caffeine. Additionally, blue ginger helps sharpen alertness and focus. The best part? Blue ginger doesn’t increase blood pressure or heart rate, meaning you can enjoy all the benefits of caffeine without the jitters or crashes. Blue ginger is also a rich source of immune-supporting antioxidants, along with iron and vitamins A and C. Add blue ginger to your favorite recipes to spice things up and enjoy its many powerful benefits in the process. Blue ginger can be added to your diet through high-quality supplements.
Broccoli is a cultivated version of wild cabbage. Thousands of years ago, the Etruscans—
an ancient Italian civilization who lived in what is now Tuscany—began cultivating broccoli. Its English name, broccoli, is derived from the Italian word broccolo, which means “the flowering crest of a cabbage,” and the Latin brachium meaning “arm, branch, or shoot.”
By the mid-1700s, broccoli was introduced in England and was called “Italian asparagus.” It wasn’t until immigrants from southern Italy brought broccoli to the United States in the 1920s that it became a popular food in the west. Broccoli is essentially a large, edible flower—similar to the artichoke. Because of the cultivation of broccoli, we now also have cauliflower, cabbage, kale, kohlrabi, and brussels sprouts. Broccoli is often categorized as a superfood because it is extremely nutrient-dense, contains few calories, and has lots of fiber and potassium to help you feel full. At only 30 calories per cup, broccoli is a good source of vitamin C, iron, fiber, potassium, vitamin A, calcium, zinc, vitamin K1, magnesium, carotene, and vitamin B. Eating a diet rich in green vegetables, including broccoli, has been shown to support cognitive health and healthier body weight.
Cane Sugar - Organic
This common sugar is one you’ve certainly heard about. This sweetener often gets a bad rap, but it actually has several benefits. Organic cane sugar comes from organic sugar cane plants; however, it is much less processed than ordinary, bleached sugar, allowing it to retain many of its nutrients.
Citicoline is a naturally occurring nutrient found in every cell in the body and is most notable for its impact on the brain. This water-soluble compound increases an important substance in the brain called phosphatidylcholine, which is critical for brain health and function. Citicoline helps produce neurotransmitters and cellular building blocks. Citicoline is widely recognized for its cognitive health benefits. Studies have shown that supplementing with citicoline can support cellular synthesis and brain energy, as well as focus, attention, and recall. More specifically, Cognizin® is a clinically-tested form of citicoline that has been shown to support mental energy, promote focus and attention, and support overall cognitive health. In addition to what is normally produced in the body, citicoline is found naturally in foods such as organ meats, eggs, chicken, fish, and to a lesser extent, in some plant-based foods such as cauliflower and broccoli.
Promotes energy metabolism. Maintains healthy hair, skin, and nails. Essential for the growth and development of children. Helps convert proteins, carbohydrates, and fats into energy.
Electrolytes are mineral compounds that carry an electric charge. This means they help support chemical reactions in cells and throughout the body. These important minerals include sodium, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. When you lose water through sweat or other waste, you’re also losing these essential minerals. That’s why it’s also important to replace the lost minerals. And because sweating causes the loss of far more sodium than the other electrolytes, you won’t find that replacement in water alone. These powerful compounds have a range of vital benefits, from performance to overall health. These include supporting healthy blood pressure, nerve and muscle function, and tissue regeneration. Some research suggests nearly three out of four Americans are chronically dehydrated, and many don’t realize it. We can recharge our electrolytes from a variety of natural food sources, such as bananas, coconut water, avocado, and some fruit juices. Additionally, there are all sorts of neon-colored, sugar-packed sports drinks that boast their electrolyte benefits. But not all sports drinks are created equal.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a well-known digestive aid that is used to flavor food and for its health benefits. The ginger plant is in the same family as other familiar spices, cardamom, and turmeric. This perennial plant with grass-like leaves is native to Asia and has been used for thousands of years for its health properties and spicy aroma. From India and China to the Roman Empire, it has been a valued commodity. It even made its way to medieval England, where the popular gingerbread man treat emerged around the 16th Century. Ginger has powerful digestive benefits. It has been shown to support normal digestion through the stimulation of digestive enzymes and supports an unsettled stomach due to its ability to support gastric motility – or in simpler terms, the process of food traveling through the digestive tract. Beyond its gut health benefits, ginger may also help support healthy blood glucose levels. The active components of ginger are antioxidants, such as gingerol and gingerdione, which help maintain a healthy inflammatory response.
Grape Seed and Grape Skin
This superfood is often regarded for its heart health benefits. It supports cardiovascular health by helping the body maintain healthy blood pressure levels and supporting healthy cholesterol.
Ever wonder where the phrase “healthy as a horse” comes from? We’d like to think it comes from one of our favorite herbs, horsetail. There’s no proof of any connection, of course, but it’s still an easy way to remember just how great horsetail can be for your health! Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is a perennial herb and member of the fern-like Equisetum family, which has been around for hundreds of millions of years. As you might imagine, it gets its name from the appearance of its branches, which resemble a horse’s tail. Horsetail is rich in phenolic acids and flavonoids, which are antioxidants that support the body’s natural detoxification process. Commonly used as a diuretic, horsetail helps minimize fluid retention and encourages a healthy urinary tract. Beyond its many gut health benefits, horsetail has been shown to help enable a healthy inflammatory response, promote bone health, and support liver function. Additionally, horsetail is rich in silica, which benefits hair, skin, and nails.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. The word collagen comes from the word for “glue” in Greek. It is found in all animals and acts as the “glue” that helps hold together our tissues, organs, muscles, and bones. There are over 25 forms of collagen in the human body. Type I, II, and III are the most prominent in humans. Type I accounts for 80-90% of the collagen in our bodies, which is why it is commonly found in most collagen supplements. Hydrolyzed collagen, also referred to as collagen peptides or collagen hydrolysate, refers to a form of collagen in which proteins are broken down into smaller particles. These particles are more easily and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. When the body better absorbs nutrients, it helps maximize its benefits. From bones to skin, collagen impacts many areas of the body. These peptides support longevity and provide elasticity in our skin that gives it that youthful, vibrant glow. Collagen also supports healthy aging by promoting bone and joint health. Collagen has been shown to support digestive functions by helping maintain the delicate lining of the digestive tract. Research also suggests collagen can help support cognitive health and support healthy weight and metabolism. According to recent studies, less than half of adults receive enough protein from their food, and the proteins they do get can often be difficult to digest and may not be in a healthy form. That’s why it is important to consider supplementing with quality collagen protein. There are numerous ways you can keep your collagen production up to par. As with anything health-related, your diet plays a key role. Give your body what it needs to produce collagen effectively by getting your daily dose of vitamin C, primarily found in citrus fruits and berries. In addition, glycine and proline help give your body what it needs to build collagen. Glycine and proline are mostly derived from animals, but there are also plant sources. You can find glycine in plants like spinach, cauliflower, kale, pumpkin, banana, and beans. Proline can come from asparagus, cucumber, watercress, and chives.
Essential for DNA production. Supports nerve transmission. Vital to the growth and reproduction of cells. Promotes healthy pregnancy. Helps metabolize fat.
Juniper (Juniperus) is an evergreen shrub in the Cypress family. It is native to parts of Europe, Asia, and North America and is a rich source of antioxidants and diuretic compounds. Juniper berries are deep blue in color and are often regarded not only for their appealing flavor and aroma but for their various health benefits as well. Juniper’s compounds are high in nutrients and boast an extensive range of benefits, including enabling healthy digestion, promoting a healthy inflammatory response, and supporting wastewater removal from the body. As part of its many gut health benefits, juniper also helps minimize gas and bloating, and encourages stomach comfort. It is even used to promote urinary tract, kidney, and bladder health. Juniper berries are also a good source of vitamin C and contain flavonoid antioxidants that work to promote immune health.
Promotes relaxation response to decrease stress. Enhances alpha waves in the brain. Serves as a powerful antioxidant. Improves immune function. Supports blood flow.
Marshmallow (Althaea Officinalis) is an herb that has been used for over 2,000 years and is native to Europe and Asia. Its roots produce a sort of gelatinous sap or syrup substance, known as mucilage, that is shown to promote a variety of benefits. Due to their mucilage, marshmallow helps promote a healthy digestive tract. It has been shown to help support normal tissue regeneration in the gut. Marshmallow also has antioxidant properties, which promotes a healthy inflammatory response.
MCT oil is a highly concentrated source of MCTs, or Medium Chain Triglycerides. MCTs are molecules typically derived from coconut or palm kernel oil. Triglycerides are a form of dietary fat that gives your body energy. Medium-Chain Triglycerides have shorter chains of carbon atoms, with six to 12 molecules versus the 13 or more molecules found in long-chain triglycerides. This means long-chain take more time to digest, and therefore, are more likely to be stored as fat by the body. Thanks to their shorter chain length, MCTs are more quickly broken down and absorbed by the body. What does this mean for you? Put simply, it means they provide a quick energy source and are less likely to be stored as fat. MCTs assist with weight management by providing fewer calories per volume, supporting feelings of satiety (or fullness), and helping facilitate fat and calorie burning. MCTs also promote endurance during a workout, support a healthy inflammatory response, and have been shown to help with cognitive function.
Our bodies need a range of vitamins to stay healthy and perform at their best. One such essential vitamin is B12. Let’s take a look at B12, particularly its methylcobalamin form. B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that’s crucial for proper blood cell formation and overall health. Among its primary functions, B12 works in tandem with vitamin B9, also known as folate, to maintain cellular health. Methylcobalamin, also known as methyl B12, is one of four types of B12. This specific form is naturally occurring and more bioavailable. Other forms of B12, like cyanocobalamin, must be converted in the body to methylcobalamin before it can be used. This key vitamin plays an essential role in vital body functions, including red blood cell development, metabolism, and DNA production. Additionally, B12 supports normal cognitive function and nervous system health. It is also beneficial for bone health, skin health, eye health, and even energy. Methylcobalamin is found naturally in certain foods, including beef, chicken, fish, eggs, Greek yogurt, and milk. It can also be added to foods such as fortified cereals and nutritional yeast. Because this form is more often found in animal products, plant-based diets alone may lack sufficient B12. Fortunately, B12 is also available as a supplement, with methylcobalamin being the optimal form due to its increased bioavailability, which means it is better absorbed by the body.
Monk fruit is a small round fruit that is native to southeast Asia and named after the monks who first cultivated it. A member of the gourd family, monk fruit, or lo han guo, has been used for hundreds of years and has become increasingly popular in recent years as an alternative to processed sugars. Monk fruit contains natural sugars like fructose and glucose, contains no calories, and does not impact blood sugar levels. It is also more easily digested by the body.
GMO stands for “genetically modified organism.” This term refers to any plant, animal, microorganism, or other organisms whose DNA or other genetic information has been altered in a laboratory using genetic engineering or transgenic technology. GMOs create plant, animal, bacterial, and virus genes that do not occur naturally or through traditional crossbreeding methods. Most GMOs grown in the United States are engineered to produce their own pesticides (insecticides). The purpose of insecticide is to act upon the insects’ nervous system, causing paralysis and death. Consuming these plants on a regular basis may lead to an imbalance in our own internal ecosystem. It’s important to know the difference between products with artificial ingredients and GMO ingredients when choosing what to feed your family. Artificial ingredients do not occur naturally and can only be created when synthesized in a lab. GMOs started as a naturally occurring organisms, but have been genetically modified—typically to increase resilience to pests, herbicides, or other environmental factors. Non-GMO ingredients are derived from any plant or animal product free from any genetic modification. Non-GMO ingredients come from naturally occurring versions of the plants or animals they are sourced from. Though our bodies may recognize GMO and Non-GMO products as being exactly the same, many highly processed ingredients are derived from GMO products that are more difficult to digest. For example, corn starch, corn syrup, canola oil, sugar, molasses, soy lecithin, soy hemoglobin, citric acid, cellulose, maltodextrin, flavorings, vitamins, and anything that says “vegetable” but is not specific, may be genetically modified and potentially cause an imbalance within the human body. Having Non-GMO ingredients in your products typically means a more natural product that is easier for the body to digest and assimilate. Products free from these highly processed ingredients are typically healthier for you and your family. At Kyäni we are committed to sourcing non-GMO ingredients for every single product we produce. We take special care to vet all of our manufacturers and ensure that they use only non-GMO ingredients.
Pro and Pre Biotics
A healthy digestive system is responsible for several key aspects of physical and mental health. The gut is considered the “second brain” and plays an important role in immune function. When it’s working well, we feel great. But when something is out of balance, we feel that too. Our modern lifestyle is packed with factors that impact digestive health. Poor sleep, bad dietary habits, and even environmental factors can wreak havoc on our gut health. From bloating, pressure, and sluggishness to impairing the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and regulate key functions, poor digestive health can keep us from living our best health.
When it comes to mental health, the digestive system is surprisingly crucial. In fact, 90% of serotonin—the neurotransmitter responsible for emotions and happiness—is found in the gut. That means if your gut is out of balance, it can negatively affect your mood and stress levels.
Probiotics: Our bodies are home to an estimated 100 trillion bacteria, many of which reside in our gut. You might cringe a bit when you hear the word “bacteria,” but certain bacteria can actually be beneficial for our health. These “good” bacteria include probiotics, microorganisms that benefit digestive function and impact overall health. Each type of probiotic can have different effects. While probiotics are naturally occurring in the body, they can also be supplemented in our diets to help counterbalance unwanted bacteria. Probiotic foods include yogurt, kombucha, sauerkraut, and other fermented foods.
Prebiotics: Prebiotics are non-digestible fiber nutrients that feed the good probiotic bacteria, helping balance the gut microbiome. These microorganisms break down and digest food and support key areas like the immune system and hormone health. Many prebiotic fibers can be found in common foods, including onions, garlic, asparagus, honey, and bananas. You can also get prebiotics from one of our favorite Kyäni ingredients, chicory (more on that soon). While you can get prebiotics in the food you eat, most people do not consume enough of these foods to give the good bacteria the nutrition it needs. That’s where prebiotic supplementation comes in.
As its name implies, stevia is derived from the leaves of the stevia plant native to South America and is in the same family as sunflowers. This natural sweetener has been used for centuries and has antioxidant properties that may support a healthy inflammatory response. Stevia is over 200 times sweeter than natural sugar and contains zero calories. As with most sweeteners, experts recommend consuming stevia in moderation.
Promotes a healthy heart. Supports proper vision. Normalizes blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Helps detoxify the body. Decreases lactic acid to reduce fatigue.
Tocotrienols are compounds found in vitamin E that contain antioxidant properties. While vitamin E has often been associated with its other compound, tocopherols, tocotrienols were discovered in recent decades and found to make up a significant portion of vitamin E as well. Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties that help neutralize free radicals in the body. Specifically, tocotrienol supports cardiovascular health, healthy cholesterol levels, and even gastrointestinal health. It has also been shown to support cognitive health, bone health, hair skin, and nail health.
Trace minerals are compounds that the body only needs in small amounts but are essential to proper development and function. A lack of these important minerals can lead to a variety of concerns, as can an overabundance of them. Trace minerals are found in many foods, including whole grains, many fruits, and vegetables, nuts, dairy products, as well as meat and seafood. They can also be incorporated into your diet using supplements. As with all nutrients, it’s important to ensure the supplement not only has the right types of ingredients, but also the right amount.
There are nine primary trace minerals that are deemed essential for overall health, each with its own benefits:
Iron - Used by the body to make hemoglobin and myoglobin to carry oxygen throughout the body and to the muscles, respectively.
Manganese - Supports bone and tissue health and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Molybdenum - Helps the body break down amino acids and toxins.
Copper - Enables the body to form red blood cells, and supports nerve, heart, and immune health.
Iodine - Promotes healthy thyroid and brain function.
Zinc - Supports a healthy inflammatory response and immune health.
Cobalt - Enables the body to make red blood cells.
Selenium - Antioxidant-rich support for heart, cell, cognitive, and immune health.
Vitamin A, sometimes referred to as alpha or beta carotene, is one of four fat-soluble vitamins, which means it is dissolved and absorbed in fats rather than water. These vitamins are stored in the body longer than water-soluble vitamins. There are two types of vitamin A. The first is preformed vitamin A, found in meat, fish, and dairy. The second is called provitamin A and is actually a precursor to vitamin A. In this form, the body converts certain carotenoids from red, yellow, and orange fruits and vegetables into vitamin A. Vitamin A provides a variety of health benefits and is essential for cell growth and development. Additionally, vitamin A is often recognized for its impact on eye and vision health. Vitamin A has antioxidant properties, helping support the immune system and protect cells from the harmful effects of free radicals. This key nutrient also supports reproductive health, skin health, and organ function. Vitamin A is naturally occurring in a variety of foods, such as beef, fish, green leafy vegetables, orange vegetables, fruits, and dairy products.
Provitamin A carotenoids found in plant-based foods, also known as beta-carotene, give certain fruits and vegetables their rich, colorful hue. Some of the most common beta-carotene-rich foods are carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, broccoli, cantaloupe, and apricots.
Even if you have a great diet overall, sometimes it can be challenging to eat nutrient-packed meals every day. That’s where supplements come in. And we have the perfect go-to for a delicious, nutrient-rich supplement that gives you plenty of vitamin A each day – and much more.

These powerful little berries pack a punch, with up to 10 times higher antioxidant levels than the common blueberry. Research shows this incredible superfood contributes to heart health by helping improve cholesterol levels and helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Wild blueberries also contain compounds called polyphenols that help reduce physical and mental stress, both of which are contributors to heart health.
Xanthan gum is a plant-based thickening and stabilizing agent (much like corn starch) commonly used in baking, especially with gluten-free recipes. It helps create a creamy texture and keeps other ingredients from separating. Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide, a type of complex carbohydrate, caused by fermentation. Beyond improving the consistency and flavor of many foods, xanthan gum is sometimes used to support healthy blood sugar, cholesterol, and normal bowel movements.
