LAS VEGAS—HORN launched two new ingredients for heart health and weight management, OPtain120™ and ChalCurb™, which will appear at SupplySide West 2014 in Las Vegas.

With an estimated 67 million adults in the U.S. experiencing high blood pressure (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the serious health issue has become a “silent killer" that significantly increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. OPtain120 is a safe and efficacious ingredient that addresses the hypertension endemic in the United States.

A patented combination of onion and pumpkin extracts, OPtain120 is clinically proven to reduce high blood pressure and support a healthy heart. Recent clinical studies in the U.S. and Japan of OPtain120 demonstrated systolic blood pressure reduction by six percent and diastolic blood pressure reduction by four percent with evidence of efficacy in as little as five days.

An angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, OPtain120 suppresses production of angiotensin II, which decreases the peripheral resistance and blood volume, thereby reducing blood pressure. Vasodilation also occurs as OPtain120 increases nitric oxide production, therefore increasing the diameter of the blood vessels and reducing blood pressure. Manufactured in Japan by Ryusendo, OPtain120 is a safe, natural product that uses hot water extraction with no harsh chemicals.

To address weight management issues, ChalCurb, manufactured by Japan Bio Science Laboratory, can reduce subcutaneous fat, weight, body mass index (BMI), and waist and hip circumference, according to research. ChalCurb is backed by two clinical studies that demonstrated its effect on reducing visceral fat by 10 percent in just eight weeks. Results were measured via computed tomography (CT) scan. ChalCurb supports leptin and adiponectin production which affect satiety, lipid metabolism and glucose regulation.

ChalCurb is derived from the dried sap of the Ashitaba plant (angelica keiskei), and no water or solvents were used in its manufacturing.

HORN BlastMax™ will have live demos at the HORN Nutraceuticals booth and will be distributing samples of this proprietary and patented dosing innovation. The technology showcased will also feature Xtend Release™, a patented delivery system that uses time-release micro-beads to deliver active ingredients.

Additionally, samples of MealShape™, the next generation starch blocker, will be available at the HORN Nutraceuticals booth in a gum application. Recently published in peer-reviewed BMC Alternative and Complementary Medicine, MealShape is a natural ingredient that instantly blocks carb absorption by more than 20 percent.
