Frutarom Health BU will introduce CitrOlive™, a patented natural ingredient that combines a synergetic action of a unique formulation of olive and citrus extracts backed by extensive research of key phytochemicals, polyphenols and flavonoids, at SupplySide West on Oct. 6 & 7, 2016 at Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas.
CitrOlive supports overall cardiovascular health and protects against the hardening of the arteries, the underlying cause of most heart problems. The benefits of CitrOlive result from its strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. It is water-soluble and can be combined in functional food and drinks, dietary supplements and nutrition bars.
"CitrOlive is an important addition to our Mediterranean ingredients line," said Yannick Capelle, product manager, Frutarom Health. "It reflects our mission to explore the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet and provide pure, safe ingredients backed by solid scientific research."
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial performed at Murcia University (UCAM), Spain, subjects received 500mg/day of CitrOlive or matching placebo for a period of 90 days. The results showed a significant drop in triglycerides and oxidized LDL levels—both considered prominent risk factors for cardiovascular disorders—versus the placebo. Moreover, acute toxicity studies have demonstrated the safety of the product, even when ingested in high doses.
