Integrity Applies New Quantification Method
SARASOTA, FL, July 21, 2005 - Integrity Nutraceuticals International (INI), makers of Cinnulin PF®, the patented water extract of cinnamon, has analyzed Cinnulin PF to quantify the active components in cinnamon. These active components are two trimers and one tetramer classified as A-Type Polymers.
Cinnulin PF is the world's first and only cinnamon extract to be standardized for these compounds.
"Cinnulin PF also contains double linked polymers compared to single linked active components. This is due to the unique raw material source we use," stated Tim Romero, vice president of Integrity Nutraceuticals International. "Even though it is classified as Cinnamomum Cassia, not all of the barks included in this botanical class contain the double linkage."
INI is currently working with Dr. Richard Anderson, USDA Research Scientist, and Planta Analytica, a reputable producer of phytochemical standards to verify their work. The quantification method will then be submitted to the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) for review and final approval.
Cinnulin PF is the only patented water extract of cinnamon ingredient available on the market. Cinnamon has been found in studies by the USDA to promote glucose metabolism and support healthy cholesterol levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes; however, researchers do not have sufficient data on the safety of consistently ingesting whole cinnamon. Cinnulin PF is free of the potentially harmful toxins found in whole cinnamon or fat-soluble extracts, making it safe for every day use.
