Whole Foods and Phytonutrients
Phytocompounds are substances that plants produce to help them thrive and protect themselves from their environment. Many of these compounds are also beneficial in the human diet, where they are referred to as phytonutrients and can make an important contribution to optimized health. By using whole food concentrates from around the world, the diversity of phytonutrients found in Zeal is as unique as the environments from which they originate. Whole foods deliver a plethora of nutrients including hytonutrients, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and healthy fatty acids –– things we need and cannot get from diet alone. Zurvita zeal for life products contain whole food concentrates so that the beneficial effects and the molecular structure of these phytonutrients remain intact. The vitamins in these zeal drink supplements are highly complex and work together synergistically; this helps them to do their job in your body.*

The results confirmed the findings of the clinical studies, proving that two servings of a Zeal drink each day help to increase vitality and provide an overall sense of well-being.
Trace Minerals and the Benefits of Adaptogens
Trace minerals, while only making up a small portion of our body mass, can make an important contribution to optimal health. It is estimated the majority of American diets may be lacking in these trace minerals.
Trace mineral deficiencies have been studied in relation to numerous functions within the cells of our bodies.* Adaptogens, which have been studied by scientists around the world, are plants or herbs that typically grow in extremely harsh climates. These ingredients can also be beneficial for our bodies when
they become nutrients with energizing, healthy-aging properties. Individual compounds found in adaptogens can number in the hundreds and include such phytonutrients as antioxidants, vitamins, trace minerals and
other substances. Zeal contains multiple adaptogens.*
