Akesi Tonics all have the same fermented base. The microbial magic starts with 7 bacterial strains and 1 beneficial yeast inoculating a proprietary blend of papaya leaf and papaya fruit. This ferments for 21 days to create a nutritionally powerful and easily absorbed tonic – magical microbes working hard for you and within you.
Let’s talk about papaya leaf, it is in the base of each of the tonics you’re enjoying…
Papaya leaf is rich in phenolic compounds and phytonutrients. There is also research to suggest that papaya leaf has potential in the management of blood borne viral diseases because of its effect on specific blood cell types. This has been attributed to the enzymes present in the papaya leaf.
What are phytonutrients and why do we need them?
Phytonutrients are found in all fruits and vegetables. A diet high in plant based foods ensures we benefit from the antioxidant properties of plants. Phytonutrients aren’t essential in keeping us alive like vitamins are, but they help prevent disease and keep the body functioning optimally.
If they all have the same base how do you know which tonic is right for you?
