Finding the right organic asparagus extract powder ingredients to buy — especially if you’re searching for asparagus extract powder ingredients online — is not always easy, but with ETAS enzyme treated asparagus it is.

ETAS is a proprietary ingredient derived from the tough lower portion of asparagus stalks, which has the unique ability to increase the production of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70).* Regarding asparagus extract powder health benefits, double-blind, placebo-controlled research has shown ETAS enzyme-treated asparagus effectively:

Increases quality of sleep*[1]

Alleviates occasional stress by improving
heart rate variability*[2]

Raises cognitive performance, reduces
fatigue, and improves the stress response*[3],[4],[5]

The extraction process used to create ETAS asparagus extract powder results in unique hydroxymethyl furfural derivatives — particularly asfural — that are not contained in raw asparagus extract.


Asparagus Extract Powder Benefits

ETAS asparagus extract powder works by increasing the production of HSP70 — an intracellular protein produced naturally by the body when it encounters a stressor, such as extreme heat.*[6]

HSP70 has many beneficial functions. It repairs damaged cells, tips the balance from excitatory cytokines to inhibitory ones and serves as an antioxidant.*[7],[8],[9]  Unfortunately, the heat shock response to stressors of all kinds decreases with age.[10],[11]  Human clinical research has shown that ETAS significantly increases the expression of HSP70 at a dosage of 100 mg elemental ETAS asparagus extract powder per day.*[12] (The commercially available form of ETAS powder is 50% elemental ETAS, requiring a dosage of 200 mg per day.)

What is HSP? (Heat Shock Protein)

• All proteins need to be folded to work correctly

• HSP helps such protein folding as “chaperone” by stabilizing new proteins to ensure correct folding, or by helping to refold proteins that were damaged by the cell stress.

• HSP is found in virtually all living organisms, from bacteria to humans.

Active Components

Several active components are identified in ETAS for HSP-induction, and ETAS is standardized with the component group “Asparaprolines” asparagus-derived proline-containing 3-alkyldiketopiperazines”.
