One capsule daily provides all of the essential Avogen nutrient of one avocado.*
With Avogen, you feel better and look younger. It is that simple.
Avogen keys on the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) to aid and support cells deteriorated from aging and stress. These aging and stress symptoms in the extra-cellular matrix and elsewhere are usually distinct and measurable by 30 years old. As the body undergoes aging and stress, soft elastic tissues of all organs become, descriptively speaking, more gristle-like. This is sometimes referred to as excess crosslinking.
In trauma, for example, the scars that form could be described as overly crosslinked fibers. In a sense, aging tissue may be thought of as a thin scar – inelastic, disorganized and visually unfavorable.
When ‘scars’ occur internally as we age, and especially from surgery, the tissues adhere together haphazardly from over crosslinking. These ‘adhesions’ from surgery can be very painful and often do not subside. Some studies point to 93% of all surgeries result in adhesions – some worse than others. Aging ECM does not often cause painful adhesions however, it is dysfunctional.
With skin the extracellular matrix deteriorates and skin becomes thin, hard and dry. When sun damage occurs, the skin becomes highly crosslinked and inelastic. Avogen helps restore tissue to soft, elastic condition and aids and supports the signaling processes between cells that occur in the extracellular matrix.
Ingredients & Product Care
Avogen is a lightly textured, yellow oil that develops in avocado fruit. We mix this with virgin, organic avocado oil that is very green from natural chlorophyll. The capsule is very stable but avoid extremes of cold and heat and most of all – light. Keep the capsules in their container and store at room temperature. Avogen requires no preservative and will remain stable for at least two years from the date of production.
20 mg: Avogen™ (Persea Americana extract)
380 mg: Certified Organic Avocado Oil (Persea Americana virgin oil)
Other Ingredients (Capsule):
Plant Derived Cellulose
* One or two capsules daily. Excess consumption of Avogen will not increase benefits or accelerate desirable change. While safe for children, the advantages of Avogen are realized in tissues that are aging and under stress and should be provided to children under the care of a medical professional.
Avogen is a naturally derived fraction of avocado. The capsule contains the average amount of Avogen as would be consumed in one whole avocado, as it varies through a season. Avogen has been consumed for thousands of years – whenever you eat guacamole! It is the unique and essential nutrient of avocado found nowhere else in nature. Avogen is what made the avocado famous – in skin and health.
Safety and Precautions
Avogen is a natural avocado metabolite. Consumption of one capsule per day is, on average, equivalent to eating one avocado per day for Avogen – but without the calories! Avogen is safe for all ages, but it is primarily intended for adults. It is safe to take Avogen during pregnancy. Avogen has undergone safety tests and exhibits no indications for mutagenic or teratogenic activity.
We advise the following precautions:
- Avogen is not recommended if you are allergic to avocados.
- One or two capsules per day; dosing in excess of one capsule daily will NOT increase benefits.
- Excessive dosing (more than 20 capsules at a time) or accidental ingestion by children or adults may result in digestive upset and symptoms similar to over-ingestion of any vegetable oil.
- Avogen will not interfere with other medications, but consult your doctor if you are taking medications.
- If you experience any undesired symptoms, discontinue product.
Avogen may be taken before, after or during meals. We suggest just before bedtime. Avogen is easily digested and should produce no apparent after-taste.
The organic avocado oil ingredient will be absorbed as any vegetable oil to be processed further in the liver or with longer chained fractions, through the lymphatic system. Avogen itself will pass intact through the stomach and also be absorbed through sites in the digestive tract. There it will proceed to the extracellular matrix via the blood supply and become bio-available in support of the processes there.
There will be no “drug” sensations in consumption of Avogen. Stomach upset is rare but if it occurs, discontinue product.
From its origins of discovery in a village in the highlands of Guatemala where indigenous workers exhibited the first evidence of the benefits of its consumption, we continue to delve deeper into the mysteries of this most essential nutrient from the avocado.
