The Gac Treatment

Well, last time I checked I could have sworn that gac was a gooey substance my kids tried to make in science class. It apparently has morphed into R.G. Skin Revitalizer. You should probably check this out for yourself as I'm sure it has nothing to do with 7th grade science projects that went wrong.

R.G. (red gac) is a dietary supplement. Indeed, in addition to applying sunscreen, which we need here in the desert, one can make this a part of one's daily diet. It's an oil extract from the tropical super-fruit Gac which apparently is rich in carotenoid antioxidants.

So here's the scoop on that bright red fruit. It grows as large as a cantaloupe and on a vine mind you in countries like Vietnam and tropical Asia. I guess people there have always known of its medicinal value as these are grown in people's back yards.

My grandma knew of such things and this kind of wisdom probably carried her and her children through WWII. Gac fruit helps boost the immune system among other things. Furthermore, it has been said that their nutritional value keeps the skin, we so desperately need to keep our skeleton and other parts on the inside, extremely healthy. Here's to your health.
