g3™ is a nutrient-rich juice from the prized gac “Superfruit” of southern Asia, whose nutritional benefits have been scientifically demonstrated to protect cells. Among gac’s potent phytonutrients are a unique and highly-bioavailable form of carotenoids called “lipocarotenes™” that provide powerful antioxidants which support healthy immune function. The g3™ formula was developed with 3 additional super fruits – Chinese lycium, Siberian pineapple, and cili fruit – that synergistically provide exponential benefits. g3™ has a refreshing flavour that is deliciously sweet, slightly tart and can be enjoyed daily by everyone in the family.


The earth’s fruits are a demonstration of nature’s beauty and creativity. Their varied shapes, colours, perfumes, and flavours attract and inspire. More importantly, they function as natural reservoirs of life-sustaining nutrients for insects, animals, and mankind. They are particularly rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other potent and beneficial phytonutrients. Many fruits offer specific and targeted health benefits and can be used as important components of integrated health maintenance programs. Unfortunately, many of the current fruit juice products on the market today are not founded on science. Instead they rely heavily on anecdotal “cure-all” claims that mislead and build false hopes in consumers. Fortunately, new scientific research focused on the traditional use of specific fruits and juices for wellness benefits is beginning to separate the anecdotal and exotic from the verifiable.

g3™ by Pharmanex® Pharmanex has leveraged research and data from the Pharmanex® BioPhotonic Scanner technology to design and develop g3™. Consistent with the Pharmanex® 6S Quality Process of quality and efficacy, Pharmanex is pleased to offer a unique fruit-juice blend provided by nature, time-tested through traditional use, and proven efficacious by modern science. g3™is a blend of all-natural super fruit juices that provide cellular benefits while supporting healthy immune function in a highly bioavailable form. g3™is certified to increase your Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS) with the BioPhotonic Scanner. The unique combination of phytonutrients in g3™is derived from carefully selected “super fruits” traditionally used throughout the world for their restorative properties and whose nutritional benefits have been validated through scientific study. g3™was developed with 3 additional super fruits – Chinese lycium fruit from southern China, Siberian pineapple fruit from Asia, and cili fruit from the mountains of China. The combination of these 3 super fruits along with gac lipocarotenes™ provide exponential benefits.

Gac fruit – “Fruit from Heaven” Natives of Southern Asia have long prized the gac fruit for its ability to promote longevity and vitality. Savouring this “fruit from heaven,” indigenous people have long believed this ceremonial fruit promotes health and wellness. This reddishorange melon size fruit has been historically used for internal and external health, such as promoting tissue growth, promoting and maintaining good vision, promoting growth of children and assisting pregnant and nursing mothers. When applied topically, gac has been known to help sprains, cuts and wounds. Modern research shows it contains unusually concentrated amounts of a unique and highly bioavailable form of carotenoids called lipocarotenes™. Naturally occurring longchain fatty acids in lipocarotenes™ attract and bind important antioxidants and nutrients to facilitate their absorption, making gac the ideal nutrient carrier. Science has also demonstrated that gac fruit is rich in other potent antioxidants such as lycopene and beta carotene. Gac contains 70 times more lycopene than tomatoes, and 10 times more beta carotene than carrots.

Chinese lycium (Wolfberry) Chinese lycium is a small red berry from Southern China. It has been traditionally used to assist with vision, tension, dizziness, kidney and liver function. Today, scientists have discovered benefits from its high amounts of antioxidants, polysaccharides, vitamin A and vitamin C. Chinese lycium is amazingly rich in zeaxanthin, a carotenoid necessary for the maintenance of the macula region of the retina in the eyes. It has about 40 times more zeaxanthin than yellow corn.
Siberian pineapple (Sea buckthorn) – “Wonder Plant” Siberian pineapple is a small orange or yellow berry native to Europe, Russia and China, also known as the “wonder plant”. For over 2000 years, natives have traditionally used this fruit
for immune and liver function. Russian cosmonauts ate the fruit and used the oil in a cream believing it would help protect them from solar radiation. Modern research shows that this small but potent fruit contains more than 190 active substances, including some of the richest natural source of carotenoids, flavonoids and vitamin C. Cili fruit – “King of Vitamin C” Cili is an orange-yellow wild fruit found only in certain high mountain ranges of Southwest China. Cili fruit is known as the “king of vitamin C”, and contains 60 times more vitamin C than oranges. Scientific research shows that it also has high concentrations of bioflavonoids, carotenoids and roxburghic acids. Recent studies show that cili fruit improves antioxidant capacity and immune function.

Why are lipocarotenes™ important? A lipocarotene™ is a matrix of carotenoids and fatty acids that enables efficient absorption and transport of these important nutrients. Gac contains high levels of fatty acids, which creates a lipocarotene™ structure to deliver highly bioavailable carotenoids. Compared to beta carotene found in dark-green vegetables, beta carotene from the Gac fruit appears to be more easily absorbed, presumably because of a more efficient release of the bound molecule from the matrixes of gac and the presence of long-chain fatty acids in the seed membrane and pulp.

What types of carotenoids are found in gac fruit? Gac fruit contains a variety of carotenoids, but lycopene is the predominant carotenoid present. The concentration of lycopene is 40 to 70 times higher than that in known lycopene-rich fruits and vegetables. Gac fruit is also richer in oils than other common fruits and vegetables. In a clinical study, subjects given gac fruit (3.5 mg/day beta carotene) resulted in greater plasma levels of beta carotene than that of another group given pure beta carotene powder (5.0 mg/day).

What does “SCS Certified™” mean? The “SCS Certified™” logo included in the g3™ packaging stands for Skin Carotenoid Score Certified and means that Pharmanex is confident that an individual’s Skin Carotenoid Antioxidant Score, as indicated by Pharmanex® BioPhotonic Scanner, will increase by taking g3™ at the recommended serving size. Is this product safe? g3™is a safe, well-tolerated supplement. g3™ contains fruit juices naturally found in the food supply, which have been consumed by Asian cultures for hundreds of years.
