Few people can resist the delicious taste of Zaca chewables, but what exactly is in this little tablet that makes it so appealing? While it has enjoyed a spot in people’s pockets, purses and medicine cabinets, there are many people who don’t know why it works.
Zaca is specifically formulated with a proprietary blend containing ingredients that are backed by a vast amount of studies, science and traditional use. Below we list each key ingredient with the studies behind them.
Most use an isolated form of DHM (dihydromerycetin), instead Zaca uses a proprietary extract of japanese raisin that includes all biologically active compounds for maximum results. The seeds, fruit and stalk (peduncle) are each harvested and included in the extraction, giving the full synergistic benefits of a variety of components including high antioxidant levels, flavonoids, and quercetin. There is a long history of it being used as a medicine and food supplement in Japan, Korea and China. It has a wide range of usages for its liver detoxification support and hepatoprotective effects to its antioxidative and anti-fatigue properties.

Zaca uses L-Glutathione (setria), also called Reduced Glutathione, produced using a fermentation process. It is superior to other glutathione ingredients on the market, clinically studied to increase blood glutathione levels and support the immune system while containing no additives, artificial flavors or preservatives. Glutathione is widely known for antioxidant protection, detoxification and immune fortification. It is also known shown to support the liver, GI tract, and even regenerate other nutrients in the body such as Vitamin C and E.

Deficient synthesis of glutathione underlies oxidative stress in aging and can be corrected by dietary cysteine and glycine supplementation

A unique and revolutionary dipeptide form of L-Glutamine for maximum absorption. L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine is a combination of pure L-Glutamine for muscle protein synthesis and L-Alanine for glycogen stores. Glutamine consists of over half the body’s free amino acids, and is involved with many biochemical and metabolic processes. L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine can support glycogen store replenishment, supports hydration levels, support recovery from exercise, support athletic performance and support overall immunity.

The prickly pear cactus (Nopalea cochenillifera) is native to Mexico and considered to originate there, but today you can find them growing all over the world in the desert ecosystem. The cactus plant provides benefits that can help your body every day in more ways than one. Prickly Pear contains high levels of the bioflavonoid quercetin, contributing to its free-radical-scavenging ability via antioxidants. Notably, its rich composition of nutrition includes—vitamins (Vitamin B, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin C), polyphenols, minerals (Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Calcium), polyunsaturated fatty acids and amino acids.
