ONLY GAC FRUIT LTD is the company behind the launch of a natural antioxidant ‘wonder’ oil now available in gel capsule form. The capsules contain oil extracted from the exotic melon-like Gac fruit that is primarily grown in Vietnam. It is said that the Gac fruit contains some of the highest concentrations of natural lycopene and beta-carotene of any known fruit or vegetable, as well as high levels of Vitamin E. After two years of scientific testing and research, feedback has been overwhelmingly positive for improved skin, hair, nails and eyes. Furthermore, global research has indicated that consuming lycopene-rich foods can reduce the risk of prostate cancer and boost the immune system.
Nutritionally, like for like, Gac fruit is reported to contain up to 70 times more lycopene than tomatoes and up to 10 times more beta-carotene than carrots – a rare combination of essential vitamins from one source. Appreciated for centuries by the Vietnamese people for its myriad health benefits, Gac fruit only recently started receiving international attention and has been dubbed the ‘Fruit from Heaven’.
In partnership with an established local producer, the oil from the fruit – which ripens and is harvested over only three months of the year – is extracted and cold-pressed to exacting standards in a modern processing plant in Northern Vietnam. The gel capsules are then bottled and packed for international shipment. Quality control is strictly monitored in Vietnam, with further random testing conducted in the UK and Europe.
Recommended dosage for children 12 years and older are two – three capsules per day with food. Unopened Only Gac Fruit bottles provide a shelf life of approximately two years.
The co-founding family owners and management of Only Gac Fruit Ltd, Charles, Gilly and daughters Victoria and Anna Gregory, came to appreciate – and attest to – the cosmetic and health benefits of the fruit while working and living in Hanoi for over six years. Upon returning to the UK, Only Gac Fruit Ltd was established to produce and supply the UK and international market. To-date the Only Gac Fruit capsules have been shipped to many countries including the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong and the USA. Only Gac Fruit Ltd is currently the sole UK supplier of Gac Fruit oil capsules.
