Upcycle And Uplift With ETAS®

ETAS® is derived from the tough lower stalks of asparagus that would otherwise go to waste. The result is a proprietary ingredient that works to create heat-shock protein (HSP70), a naturally occurring protein in the body that counteracts levels of extreme stress. In human clinical research, ETAS was shown to significantly increase the production of HSP70 at a dose of 200mg. Through a double-blind placebo-controlled study, ETAS was found to: 

  1. Increase the overall quality of sleep* 
  1. Alleviate occasional stress by improving heart rate variability* 
  1. Raise cognitive performance in the brain* 
  1. Reduce fatigue and improves the body’s natural stress response* 

Award-Winning Cognitive Support for Stress, Sleep and Focus

We know that chronic and acute stress negatively impacts not only sleep, but cognition—including memory and reasoning.* 

Award-winning ETAS® can support healthy stress relief, sleep, and brain function.* 

Winner of the SupplySide West Ingredient Idol award for Cognitive Function, ETAS® is derived from the tough lower portion of asparagus stalks that would otherwise go to waste, making the ingredient both upcycled and sustainable. 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. 

ETAS® asparagus extract powder works by increasing the production of Heat Shock Protein 70 (HSP70) — an intracellular protein produced naturally by the body when it encounters a stressor, such as extreme heat.* 

HSP70 has many beneficial functions. HSP helps proteins to ensure correct folding and it repairs damaged cells, tipping the balance from excitatory cytokines to inhibitory ones, and serves as an antioxidant.* Unfortunately, the heat shock response to stressors of all kinds decreases with age. 

Double-blind, placebo-controlled research has shown a 300 mg dose of ETAS® effectively: 

  • Increases quality of sleep* 
  • Alleviates occasional stress by improving heart rate variability* 
  • Suppresses cortisol level increase* 
  • Raises cognitive performance, reduces fatigue and improves the stress response*
