Capros is developed from Phyllanthus emblica, the Indian Gooseberry.

Capros has a high ORAC value of nearly 1,800, which is certainly compelling, but the in vivo results really tell the whole story, according to Dr. Runa Ghosh, PhD, Managing Director of R&D at Natreon, Inc. An in vivo Capros study shows that this ingredient has comparable antioxidant potential based on well known in vivo radical scavenging assays. Compared specifically with extracts of pine bark, grape seed and pomegranate, all popular ingredients on the market, the resulting values for Capros showed significantly better defense against chronic oxidative stress with no adverse effects. The model design included controls and was a severe challenge to the mice, based on 28-day administration of toxic potassium dichromate, known to produce oxidative stress. The assays were made on samples taken from the brain, liver and plasma of the animals. Given these results, Capros shows promise as a synergistic antioxidant ingredient.
