It’s pronounced /ɡak/.
Our product gac TM originates from “gac” – the Vietnamese common name for Momordica cochinchinensis spreng, a vibrantly-colored, strikingly shaped, rare super fruit jam-packed with antioxidants and other nutrients. It has been cherished by people in SE Asia for centuries in traditional medicine and cuisine. Gaclife makes gac and its health benefits accessible through our refreshingly light and tasty gac water and sparkling water.
Research has found gac contains the highest concentration of carotenoids – a potent antioxidant - amongst all known fruits and vegetables with over 70 times more lycopene than tomatoes, 40 times more zeaxanthin than corn, and 10 times more beta-carotene than carrots. Moreover, its carotenoids are more bio-accessible (easier for the body to absorb and use) than those in other fruits and vegetable, including carrots and tomatoes.
Clinical trials have identified that the carotenoids in gac are key to prevent skin wrinkles, sharpen our vision and minds, protect us from diseases, and help slow down the aging process . Gac is also packed with Vitamins A, C and E, which helps prevent collagen fibers – the proteins that support skin and keep it firm and young looking – from being broken down.1
Even better, gac contains very low levels of sugar and tastes as pleasantly mild and refreshing as avocados.
