HP Ingredients receives U.S. patent for ParActin

ParActin® is an andrographis extract that has anti-inflammatory properties.

Annie Eng, founder and CEO of HP Ingredients, has announced that the company was issued a US Patent for its signature proprietary compound, ParActin®.  The patent  US #8,084,495 B2, issued on December 27, 2011, is for the unique work: "Composition of Labdane diterpenes extracted from Andrographis paniculata, useful for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, and Alzheimer Disease by activation for PPAR-Gamma receptors."

Annie Eng, founder and CEO of HP Ingredients, comments, "This patent validates the research supporting viable use of ParActin® in a variety of health issues that necessitate targeted support without other compromising effects such as those experienced typically from more commonly prescribed  auto-immune disease drugs and NSAIDs.  ParActin's principle extracted components have been shown to be the first natural Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptor gamma {PPARy] agonist which exerts desirable protective effects in both autoimmunity and Alzheimer's cases."

Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptor gamma (PPARy) is the key regulator of the immune and inflammatory response. ParActin®  was shown in low doses (25 to 30 mg) to support a healthy immune response and at high doses (250 mg) to activate PPARy to promote healthy inflammatory response. When PPARy is activated, then NF-kappaB is inhibited.

Says Eng, "ParActin®, now with this patent, may give our brand marketer clients a distinct competitive edge in the brain health and joint support supplement market sectors."
