Arjuna Confirms Origin-cultivated Amaranth Supply

Arjuna Natural is now able to guarantee a sustainable, nitrate-enriched, all-natural Amaranthus extract supply for boosting nitric oxide levels. The company implemented a sustainable approach to meet the growing demand for its nitric oxide booster, OxyStorm®, in the US and Europe.

This natural source of nitrates is sugar-free and can be applied to a wide range of applications and standardized high nitrate content of 9%. Clinical research has demonstrated a crucial role played by nitric oxide in cardiovascular health. Nitric oxide deficiency, is the first step for the emergence of many disease states of the cardiovascular and related systems, including heart failure, hypertension, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, hyperhomocysteinemia, inflammation and diseases due to smoking.

Developing new methods to restore and replete bioactive nitric oxide is extremely important, especially for cardioprotection and support in persons who are active. Results from a clinical study published in the September 2016 European Journal of Applied Physiology confirm that dietary supplementation of OxyStorm generates a significant boost in plasma nitrate, ultimately increasing nitric oxide levels in the body.

To create its high-nitrate OxyStorm, Arjuna devoted large tracts of land in South India solely to amaranthus cultivation. Harvesting amaranth requires precise agriculture proficiency and care. The company’s established association with local farmers in turn supports the community and secures its income.

“Arjuna identified an experienced community of local farmers and helped them develop and maintain sustainable farming practices,” says Benny Antony, PhD, Joint Managing Director. “We trained them to adopt the best practices, focusing on the minutest details, while employing advanced agricultural methods. This allows the farmers to attain the maximum yield of high-quality amaranthus, without using any chemicals.”

The quality of amaranthus is significantly influenced by the climate as well. Arjuna guides the farmers to harvest amaranthus at the peak time, following which the crop undergoes a controlled, proprietary process before further extraction. The nutraceutical compounds are kept intact through every segment of the patent-pending manufacturing and purification process. All processing is performed at Arjuna’s dedicated facility, under complete supervision by Arjuna’s quality control department, and powered exclusively by eco-friendly solar energy.

“OxyStorm has gained a good reputation in the US and other countries for its health benefits and high nitrate content,” notes Chase Johnston, Director of US Operations for Arjuna. “It is suitable for a comprehensive portfolio of food, beverage, and supplement applications, including health beverages, beverage ‘shots’, nutrition bars and supplements.”

Arjuna Natural LLC, was recently established in Dallas, Texas, to better serve the company’s North American customers.
