Let’s dig in the health benefits of this striking and flamboyant fruit!

Health Benefits of Gac Fruit:

Gac fruit contains, 
  • 10X beta carotene of carrots
  • 75X vitamins of leafy greens
  • 70X Lycopene of tomatoes
Additionally, it has only 0-3g sugars, 15 calories and is 100% vegan with no added sugars and no preservatives. 
High Carotenoid Concentration
Beneficial for skin health:
Gac fruit contains 31g of carotenoids, especially provitamin A & β- carotene, which works wonders in enhancing skin health. Research has proved that it smoothens the texture of extremely dry and patchy skin.

Protects from sun:
Its high lycopene concentration aids in protecting the skin against UV damage to keep the skin radiant and youthful.
Reduces Inflammation with surplus of antioxidants:
Antioxidants have always been known for fighting free radical damage that can give birth to several complications in the body. Gac Fruit is rich in antioxidants such as Lycopene.
Lycopene has also proven beneficial in reducing signs of inflammation in the body systems. It improves lung function, eye health and enhances stamina. 
Enhances overall health:
In general, Gac fruit is high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and dietary fiber. It provides increased energy and stamina and reduces the risk of diseases.  


GacLife is introducing its new gac powder teeming with the benefits of Marigold – a flower that blooms your health.
Health benefits of Marigold:
The main purpose of the addition of Marigold in the GacLife family is due to eye health promotion. The Carotenoids, Lutein and Zeaxanthin contribute to the promotion of eye sight by protecting the eyes, protecting the lens and retina from blue light damage, and detrimental UV radiation of the sun. 
The brightly colored flower looks like a non-identical sibling of Gac fruit. But in terms of health benefits, both perform an absolutely stunning and identical job!
  • It reduces inflammation and lowers the risk of damage from free radicals. 
  • Contains antiseptic properties that aid in minor skin injuries and other skin diseases.
  • It reduces inflammation of the eye and treats conjunctivitis.
  • Serves as an ointment for rashes, eczema, skin burns and sunburns.
  • Relaxes body soreness and muscle cramps.
