NORTH BERGEN, N.J.—Frutarom introduced Benolea®, a patented olive leaf extract ideal for supporting cardiovascular health. Benolea’s blood-pressure-lowering capacity exerts a positive influence on blood lipids and helps manage blood-sugar levels. Benolea also acts as an antioxidant and protects blood vessels against cellular damage caused by free radicals. In reducing these risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, Benolea supports heart health.
Benolea (EFLA®943), is produced through a selective process called EFLA®HyperPure. This Swiss technology uses vegetable oils and a specialized filtration system to ensure the safe and selective removal of undesired lipophilic contaminants such as toxins or environmental pollutants. This guarantees a high degree of purity, solubility and improved stability as well as a 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.
