Exploring Health’sUnsung Hero

The Power of Bioactives

01

We believe that bioactives are the unsung heroes of our health. As tiny building blocks inside plants, they help plants grow and protect themselves. Due to the historical challenges in isolating and understanding the impact of these compounds on human biology, scientists have only been able to identify less than 1% of bioactives.

02

When consumed, bioactives can act as keys unlocking specific receptors in our body. Once unlocked, these receptors can trigger a cascade of biological responses that can support our health and daily functioning. For example, caffeine—a bioactive found in coffee and tea—activates the adenosine receptor in the brain, setting off a chain reaction that helps a person feel energized and focused.

Both ancient traditions and modern science have long known that plants play an important role in our health. But they’ve lacked the tools to understand the mechanisms by which plant compounds impact our biology. That’s why it’s critical we map the rich diversity of these compounds to discover their benefit to overall wellness.
