High ORAC citrus formula
CITRUSHIELD ORAC Citrus Flavonoid Formula is a new ingredient by California-based Ingredients by Nature. It is based on results of two studies investigating the activity and potency of a line of novel citrus extracts. The CITRUSHIELD formula is a proprietary formulation from 100 percent whole citrus fruits and flavonoid extracts.
The formula contains citrus flavonoid extracts and whole fruit powders from five varieties of citrus including lemon (citrus limon), lime (citrus aurantifolia), orange (citrus sinensis), tangerine (citrus reticulata) and grapefruit (citrus paradisi). There are no added carriers and/or diluents in the formula. CITRUSHIELD can be custom manufactured to meet customer formulation needs in terms of specific ORAC values and citrus variety preferences. Total ORAC values can be customized from 5,000 μmole TE/gram to 50,000 μmole TE/gram. The product is also available in powder and granulation form.
IBN is currently working to add a companion ingredient—a CITRUSHIELD citrus flavonoid formula that provides support for healthy inflammatory response. The CITRUSHIELD formulas can stand alone or added as a powerful antioxidant to multiple vitamin formulations and products.
