New superfruit? Gac-infused health and beauty beverage line launched in US


30 Oct 2018 --- Emerging beverage brand GacLife has launched what it says is the world’s first line of gac-based wellness products that help promote skin and vision care. GacLife is touted as an all-natural drinkable beauty boost, supported by scientific research and packed with 90 different healing compounds. Gac fruit is a fruit found in certain Southeast Asian regions. It is seen as a powerful fruit because of its high concentration of carotenoids, antioxidants and other nutrients. Carotenoids act as antioxidants within the body, protecting against cellular damage, the effects of aging and vision impairment.

When coupled with vitamins A, E and C, such as those found in GacLife, carotenoids can help protect the collagen protein that strengthens the skin, the company reports.

“GacLife was created in direct response to severe skin irritants and eye troubles we experience daily due to digital burnout,” says GacLife Founder Yin Zou. “With the high nutrient potency of the rare superfruit gac, GacLife is promoting the concept of natural preventative beauty by creating functional wellness water to share with the world - GacLife is like a fountain of youth in your water bottle.”

Creating a drinkable skincare beverage using a high concentration of vitamins and nutrients in the fruit, the gac-based product contains antioxidants including: 70 times higher lycopene than tomatoes, 75 times higher vitamin A than leafy greens, 10 times higher beta-carotene than carrots, 4 times higher vitamin E than avocados, vitamin C, polyphenols and flavonoids.

One 12 oz. can of GacLife flavored water includes 20mg of carotenoids, which is equal to consuming in combined total: 1 regular size head of cabbage, 5 large tomatoes, 15 large carrots, 30 bunches of spinach. 

GacLife is available in six flavors: lemon, pineapple, peach, sparkling mango, sparkling lemon, and sparkling passion fruit. Each flavor comes in a six-pack of 12oz recyclable aluminum that are shelf-stable and offers an easy, on-the-go solution. GacLife is available online and ships both domestically and internationally.
