Millennium and Millennium Red







Q1:What is Millennium?
A1:
Millennium is a concentrated cactus beverage formulated upon the principles of Nutritional Immunology. Besides cactus, Millennium contains royal jelly and honey to provide an excellent source of nutrients for the body.Cactus is a natural plant food that is rich in phytochemicals. Research has revealed many amazing benefits of cactus such as strengthen the immune system, lowering blood glucose, improving cholesterol level and speeding up wound healing. In addition, phytochemicals are scientifically proven to help prevent the spread of cancer.

Q2:What are the health benefits of royal jelly?
A2:
Royal jelly is well known for its high nutrition and it is even called “the food of life”. Research conducted by Tamagawa University in Tokyo, Japan revealed that the water-soluble protein in royal jelly breaks down into at least five different types of proteins including royalisin — a protein with antibacterial properties.

Q3:How is Millennium different from other cactus products in the market?
A3:
Millennium is a superior cactus beverage that contains highly concentrated cactus extract. Millennium is different from other cactus products because it is formulated according to the science of Nutritional Immunology to retain maximum nutrients in their most concentrated form. In addition, E. Excel takes into account the cactus species, age and ideal processing methods in the manufacturing process of Millennium to ensure that the product meets the highest standards. For example, boiling the cactus during the production process would have meant losing its useful nutrients.

Q4:How does E. Excel produce Millennium?
A4:
Tremendous amounts of effort and time go into producing Millennium. Cactus does not produce much extracted juice. Thus, it takes a large quantity of cacti to produce a single pack of Millennium. In addition, the cactus requires many years of growth before it is ripe for harvest. Obtaining the cactus extract is a complex and arduous task. First, the spines and thick epidermis are removed. Next, the cactus gel is used immediately to retain maximum nutritional value. The gel is filtered to remove the seeds and fiber. To remove remaining insoluble particles, the cactus gel next undergoes nanofiltration, which removes the micro and macro particles. Then, microfiltration filters away lung-damaging dust and other substances in the macro molecular range. Ultrafiltration, the final step, separates particles by molecular weight. When the cactus gel has gone through all these filtration processes, it still retains its pure, effective nutrients, but it is virtually contaminant free and will not spoil, thereby requiring no preservatives. This filtration process also concentrates the nutrients as they are being filtered.

Q5:What is the difference between cactus and aloe vera?
A5:
Although the aloe vera resembles the cactus, the former is actually a member of the lily family, while cactus is closely related to the rose plant. Aloe vera grows quickly, taking just about eight months to mature while cactus takes many years. Aloe vera is said to be native to North Africa while cactus is native to the American continents. Aloe vera is darker and has long, flat leaves, while cactus is usually lighter colored with fleshy and swollen stems.

Q6:What are the health benefits of cactus?
A6:
Cactus contains large amounts of phytochemicals and antioxidants that can boost the human immune functions so that natural killer cells can effectively destroy harmful invaders. Research by Ferdanez et al has shown that cactus extract can also reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Cactus also lowers blood sugar and promotes wound healing. According to “Ben Cao Gang Mu”, also known as the Compendium of Materia Medica, which is a dictionary of Chinese herbs, the cactus plant is cooling by nature, and it is able to get rid of heatiness and aid in detoxification, making it useful in alleviating many diseases. Scientists have also discovered that cactus can help control blood glucose level and reduces hangover symptoms.

Q7:When should cactus be harvested to obtain the highest nutritional value?
A7:
The best time for harvesting a cactus is when it has reached the height of an average adult. However, this process takes several decades, making nutrients from the cactus very precious and rare.

Q8:What is Millennium Red?
A8:
Millennium Red contains the same nutritional benefits of cactus extract as Millennium minus the royal jelly and honey. Instead, Millennium Red is formulated with sorbitol, a natural sweetener found in the berries of the sorbus tree, cherry, pear and other fruits. Research has shown that consuming sorbitol will not elevate blood sugar levels.

Q9:How much of Millennium should I drink daily?
A9:
It is best to drink Millennium several times daily, 15cc to 20cc each time.

Q10:What would be the best way to consume Millennium?
A10:
You can either drink it on its own or mix it with other E. Excel products. Add ice for a refreshing taste. It is recommended that Millennium be poured out before consumption, rather than drinking it directly from the pack, to prevent contamination.

Q11:Which other products are suitable to be taken together with Millennium?
A11:
Millennium is best complemented with Nutriact and ACT. Taking Millennium with other E. Excel products can also enhance the overall health benefit.

Q12:Must Millennium be refrigerated once it is opened?
A12:
Yes. As Millennium uses a sterile packaging, once opened, it should be immediately refrigerated. It does not need to be refrigerated if the seal is not broken.
