Raspberry Seed Extract
Raspberry Seed Extract comes from red raspberries and provides antioxidants equivalent to seeds in a cup of fresh berries.
Raspberry Seed Extract contains antioxidant properties that may aid in reducing the oxidation of white blood cells (i.e., lymphocytes) and DNA. Adding raspberry seed extract to breakfast cereal also reduced lipid oxidation in the cereal during the storage.2
