What is Concap ?
CONCAP is produced from a specific coffee plant (Coffea Arabica). Using our special proprietary process, this product has been developed to provide all the good qualities typically attributed to coffee, but without the negative side effects. The enhanced, energizing effects of CONCAP are readily apparent with only 1.2% of the product being caffeine. The manufacture of CONCAP is a completely naturally and chemical free process.
An important distinction should be made here: many will relate the coffee bush as being similar to coffee (i.e., the caffeine ingested from coffee). Rather, the process of making coffee and manufacturing CONCAP are completely different. Coffee is a selection of coffee beans that are roasted or grilled at temperatures of 572° to 752°F(300° to 400°C), thereby causing a fundamental chemical change, which eliminates many beneficial active ingredients or reduces their potency. This process also contributes to the high acidity associated with coffee which is poorly tolerated by some people.
An average cup of coffee contains between 60 and 80 mg of caffeine. In contrast, CONCAP contains between 5.2 and 5.4 mg of caffeine per capsule and thanks to our natural, chemical free process, the active ingredients form the coffee bush are intact and will provide you their full benefit. Although a small amount of caffeine is present in CONCAP, its energizing and health benefits are a result of the synergistic effect of our unique combination of active ingredients which include vitamins, minerals, trace elements and anti-oxidants. To summarize: our process makes CONCAP highly potent to give you maximum performance and benefit while keeping the caffeine content very low.
Where does Concap come from?
Origin of Concap
The development of CONCAP dates from the 1930s in the natural medicine research work of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the Anthroposophy. The necessary studies were carried out and the concept was fully developed to create a strong, final product of the Coffea Arabica plant. This final product was called MALIO+. This treasure of vitality remained hidden for decades until it was commercialized in 2008 by the company Nutraya Ltd. in Herentals, Belgium.
What are the qualitites of Concap ?
CONCAP mainly stimulates the blood flow, both in the muscles and the brain. This increased circulation, makes all of your organs function better. For most people, three to four weeks of taking CONCAP is required to obtain the maximum benefit. Not only will the body function better, but it will have increased resistance to free radicals which are produced during periods of intense stress and/or exercise and are also known to contribute to accelerated aging. In addition, it improves focus, concentration, mental strength, and enables athletes to recover faster.
CONCAP blocks the receptors for adenosine, a compound which is involved in inflammation and pain in the muscles. Although CONCAP is important for athletes, it is equally important for older individuals (especially those with muscular complaints). CONCAP also blocks the adenosine A²a receptors in the brain and increases the release of acetylcholine. This protects brain cells (neurons) against beta-amyloid protein plaques that build up during the aging process and contributes to diseases of the brain.
CONCAP helps protect the liver cells against cirrhosis, which is commonly associated with alcohol consumption, by reducing the production of liver enzymes such as aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase, which is essential for athletes and those suffering from fatigue and complaints typically associated with old age.
CONCAP provides insulin production in the abdominal cavity membrane with higher serotonin levels in the brain as a result. This results in improved mood, increased motivation, and promotes greater self confidence. Higher serotonin levels also contribute to the production of melatonin, the hormone which ensures a good night’s sleep thus, the CONCAP user will sleep deeper and better (which further improves overall health and recovery).
CONCAP assists the body in maintaining a proper fluid balance by eliminating excess moisture without leading to dehydration.
The natural caffeine found in CONCAP is completely different than the chemical altered form found in coffee. This natural form is slowly assimilated into the bloodstream and is pleasantly tolerated by the body. No negative influence to the cardiovascular system is seen; therefore it does not contribute to sleeplessness.
