Frutarom, USA, launches Benolea® (EFLA®943), an olive leaf extract produced with the patented Hyperpure technology, for supporting cardiovascular health at SupplySide West in Las Vegas, NV, booth #25061. This scientifically proven ingredient has a positive influence on the cardiovascular system and supports a healthy heart.
Benolea exerts a positive influence on blood lipids and helps manage blood-sugar levels. Benolea also acts as a highly powerful antioxidant and protects blood vessels against cellular damage caused by free radicals.
“By maintaining healthy blood pressure levels and reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels, Benolea is one of the most beneficial cardiovascular ingredients in the marketplace,” states Laurent Leduc, Vice President Health for Frutarom Americas. “It should be taken daily as part of a healthy diet, especially since The World Health Organization cites cardiovascular diseases as the number one cause of death globally.”
A new study, published recently, inPhytomedicine No. 15, showed that Benolea® olive leaf extract from Frutarom is effective in balancing blood pressure levels. According to the study, Benolea® significantly benefits plasma triglyceride and total cholesterol levels. The results of this clinical study show Benolea® is safe and is well-tolerated.
Benolea(EFLA®943), is produced through a highly innovative and patented selective process called EFLA®HyperPure.This Swiss technology uses vegetable oils and a specialized filtration system toensure the safe and selective removal of undesired lipophilic contaminants such as toxins or environmental pollutants. This guarantees a high degree of purity, excellent solubility and improved stability as well as a unique constituents profile compared to other botanical extracts currently in the market.
Benolea® is stable in film-coated tablets, and is a valuable dosage form for food supplements. It is water soluble and can be used in still or carbonated beverages at appropriate levels while taking into account national food regulations.
“Visitors are encouraged to stop by and sample delicious candies featuring Benolea, and also to try our Organic Origanox Pecan Fruit Sesame Praline lollipop while all organic beverage will be featuring Origanox as well as using our all-organic flavors,” invites Leduc. “The Taste Bar will offer chocolate candies with FinomateTM (EFLA®920), a patented green mate leaf extract for weight loss. For those traveling to SupplySide West from afar, soothe your jet lag with a taste of our schisandra and black current lozenges to help adapt your inner clock to Las Vegas time.“
