Bravo Edestiny For Winter Immunity and Health

Bravo Edestiny For Winter Immunity and Health


Hemp seed proteins, derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, are gaining popularity for their impressive nutritional profile offering a range of potential health benefits, including boosting immunity.

EDESTIN, a Unique Protein for a Strong Immune System

Hemp seed proteins stand out for containing nine essential amino acids your body can't produce on its own and are vital for building proteins that regulate various bodily functions, including immune response that is more necessary than ever in the winter months.

Besides their complete amino acid profile, hemp seed proteins also contain EDESTIN, a protein bearing striking functional resemblance to the human precursor of GcMAF.

What happens when Edestin is fermented by the Bravo microbes?

Formation of bioactive peptides: Fermentation, performed by our unique array of microbes, leads to the formation of bioactive peptides with well-known beneficial health properties. Extensive fermentation of hemp seed proteins by Bravo microbes also breaks down Edestin into smaller peptides functionally very similar to the active part of GcMAF.

Improved gut health: Fermentation of hemp seed proteins leads also to the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) like acetate, propionate, and butyrate, which have been shown to promote gut health. SCFAs help reduce inflammation, improve gut barrier function, and increase nutrient absorption. Hemp seeds are also known to be a good source of fibers, which aid digestion and promote gut health. A healthy gut microbiome is linked to a stronger immune system.

Enhanced antioxidant activity: Bravo proprietary fermentation process increases the antioxidant activity of hemp seed proteins, protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals and reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

Improved Heart Health: The healthy fat profile of hemp seeds, including omega-3 and omega-6, contributes to lowering bad cholesterol (LDL) and raising good cholesterol (HDL), promoting heart health.

Bravo Edestiny, named after the Edestin protein, besides active peptides derived from a proprietary fermentation process performed in our Swiss facility, contains also prebiotics, gastro-resistant probiotics and postbiotics offering, for its complexity, a variety of health benefits that go well above and beyond immunity.
