Get the Specs on the Ingredients


See for yourself what makes Rain International’s supplements so great. Here you’ll find all the specifics about the miracle ingredients in our products. Most seeds make up a very small percentage of the total weight of a berry or flower, but they contain the most potent health benefits in their tiny packages. The foundation of all of our products at Rain are the seeds. The antioxidant power in berries and herbs are often touted and advertised regarding them as free-radical scavengers but seldom is it ever explained properly about the best parts of those berries and herbs…The seeds!!

Black Cumin Seed

Black Cumin (also known as Black Seed, or Nigella Sativa) has a history of 2500 years. This makes black seed one of the safest plant extracts for human consumption. Black Cumin Seed is an adaptogen which means an agent causing adaptive reactions. Black Cumin Seed has the ability to increase the resistance of the human body, protecting it against various ailments. Clinical trials have shown that Black Seed Oil controls Blood Sugar & Cholesterol apart from many other ailments and is considered to be one of the greatest healing herbs of all times.

Nearly 70% of all traditional ayurvedic formulas contain a special blend of ingredients, which includes Black Seeds for this purpose.

Nigella sativa is an annual flowering plant, native to southwest Asia. It grows to 20-30 cm tall, with finely divided, linear (but not thread-like) leaves. The flowers are delicate, and usually coloured pale blue and white, with 5-10 petals. The fruit is a large and inflated capsule composed of 3-7 united follicles, each containing numerous seeds. The seed is used as a spice as well as a Medicine to cure various diseases.

Nigella sativa has been used for centuries, both as a herb and pressed into oil, by people in Asia, Middle East, and Africa for medicinal purposes. It has been traditionally used for a variety of conditions and treatments related to respiratory health, stomach and intestinal health, kidney and liver function, circulatory and immune system support, and for general overall well-being.


D-Ribose

Ribose D is a five-carbon sugar found in every cell in our bodies. Ribose D combines with oxygen and ATP (Adenosine Triphoshate) to give energy to each cell.

Oxidative stress, as measured by free radical damage to cells leads to systematic inflammation. Fortunately, our bodies handle this problem daily, however if our bodies experience an abnormal increase in free radicals due to exercise, daily stress, excess smoking, excess saturated fat intake, depressed immune system, aging, and so forth, the body becomes fatigued and less efficient in producing Ribose D to replenish cellular energy. Accordingly, we need to supplement with Ribose D in order to properly repopulate the cell energy system.
Ribose D is found in every cell in our body
Ribose D is necessary to replenish energy in our bodies
Due to several factors our bodies do not produce enough Ribose D to support our energy needs

Scientific Name- Beta-D-Ribosfuranose

Ribose is a naturally occurring sugar made in the body from glucose and is an essential component of ATP (adenosoine triphosphate), the compound that stores and delivers energy in all cells. Ribose also occurs in RNA (ribonucleic acid), one of the main information-carriers of living organisms.

People Use This For:

Ribose taken orally is used to increase muscle function recovery, athletic performance, to boost muscle tissue energy, to enhance the effectiveness of creatine, and to replenish ATP stores.

Ribose has been used for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, improve exercise tolerance, maintain or increase energy stores in the heart or muscle cells, and improve quality of life in individuals with reduced heart blood flow. Ribose is beneficial to prevent symptoms such as cramping, pain, and stiffness after exercise. In humans, after intense exercise, muscle ATP is significantly lower, therefore taking and using ribose regularly showed marked improvement and recovery of ATP. Safety of D-ribose is likely very safe and well tolerated.

Black Raspberry Seed

Raspberries contain natural plant chemicals that act as antioxidants to locate and destroy disease-causing free radicals. In fact, raspberries rank among the top 10 high-antioxidant fruits and vegetables. Among several potential benefits, the components in raspberry seeds may help prevent infections, heart disease and cancer.

Antioxidant Components

Raspberry seeds contain antioxidant-like phytonutrients including ellagitannins and anthocyanins that may help fight cancer, viruses, inflammation and a number of other conditions. Antioxidants scavenge and destroy cell-damaging substances, called free radicals, that can occur naturally in the body or from exposure to environmental toxins. Although ellagitannins exist in most berries, raspberries contain the highest levels, according to immunology specialist Dr. Susan Thorpe-Vargas. Anthocyanins, also found in many berries, help provide some of the color pigment in plants and fruits.

Antibacterial and Antiviral Benefits

High amounts of the ellagitannins in raspberry seeds may help fight bacteria and viruses. The coiled structure of DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, in bacteria must untwist itself to replicate and spread throughout the body. This process requires an enzyme called gyrase. Ellagitannins may inhibit this enzyme and halt bacterial spread to prevent illness. This antioxidant also may prohibit the action of another enzyme involved in the proliferation of viruses. Unlike bacteria, viruses cannot replicate and must “hijack” and insert their DNA into a host cell. Ellagitannins stop an enzyme, called integrase, from enabling this process, according to Thorpe-Vargas.

Heart Health

The antioxidants in raspberry seeds may lower levels of cholesterol to promote the health of blood vessels and reduce the risk of coronary artery disease. Medical doctor Ray Sahelian cites a study published in the July 2009 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which observed the effects of anthocyanins on 120 subjects with high cholesterol. Participants, aged 40 to 65, received either 160 mg of anthocyanins or a placebo twice daily for a period of 12 weeks. Subjects receiving anthocyanins exhibited lower levels of dangerous low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, or LDL cholesterol, and improved overall cholesterol levels.
