Research & More Information
BioPure’s Altheas™ suppositories contain a base of pure 100% organic cocoa butter with the addition of one gram of green coffee bean extract.
Cocoa butter is a vegetable fat that comes from the fermented, roasted, and crushed seeds of the cocoa plant. This emollient is characterized by vitamins, minerals, and bioflavonoids, and has been used for hundreds of years to soothe and moisturize the skin and minimize stretch marks in pregnant women. Cocoa butter’s benefits stem from its antioxidant abilities, attributable to its flavonoid content (12-18%).
BioPure uses a food-grade cocoa butter that is 100% organic, undeodorized and unbleached. The minimal amount of processing that it undergoes preserves the highest antioxidant content possible. It also has a wonderful chocolaty aroma. Cocoa butter is solid at room temperature but melts easily in the body, and its antioxidant properties make it a highly stable emollient that is very resistant to rancidity. All of these properties make cocoa butter an excellent ingredient for its wide use today in skin creams, lotions, soaps, hair products, suppositories, and as a main component of well-loved chocolates.
The Green Coffee beans used in producing the extract in our suppositories come from organic Coffea arabica plants that are a source of beneficial phenols known as chlorogenic acids (CGA). CGA are undergoing a lot of research because of their antioxidant effects.
Research has discovered that when coffee beans are exposed to boiling water, a potentially harmful substance known as cafestol, a type of terpene, is released into the oils of the brew. Roasting has been found to destroy some of the chlorogenic acids present in the beans. By not boiling or roasting, BioPure’s coffee extract is prepared in a way to maximize the benefits and minimize the negative effects of our high quality green coffee beans.
