LEHVOSS Nutrition partners with BioNeutra For European launch of VitaFiber™ IMO

A new Canadian low calorie, natural alternative to sugar is being launched in Europe under a partnership between BioNeutra - one of Canada’s leading natural ingredient companies and Gee Lawson the nutritional division of LEHVOSS UK.

The introduction of VitaFiber™ IMO to the European market makes it the only combination low calorie natural sweetener and dietary fibre available on the continent. “It can help with the duel problems of weight gain and digestive health - both growing issues in Europe,” says BioNeutra CEO Dr. Jianhua Zhu. The WHO estimates 59% of European adults are overweight or obese just behind Americans whose rate is 61%.

Using its science, studies, clinical research including a Health Canada approved trial and a unique patented process, BioNeutra transforms starch molecules from agricultural crops like non-GMO corn, pea and tapioca into functional healthy molecules of isomalto-oligosaccarides (IMOs) using a natural enzymatic process without any chemical modification.

Sport Nutrition Needs, Trends for Female Athletes and how OptiMSM may help.

According to Natural Products Insider (Jun12, 2018) more women are entering the sports nutrition market and expressing their dissatisfaction for products formulated primarily for men. While women require and can benefit from many of the same sports nutrition products men take, such as protein, caffeine, specialty carbohydrates and choline, the female physiology often demands its own attention as far as dosing and timing. Furthermore, women have different energy needs than men. Areas of opportunity for female-centric formulation opportunities include muscle endurance, fatigue reduction, iron status, bone health, injury recovery, and body composition. Watch the following 6 minutes’ video to learn more about the trends. Link to video

 

Research suggests OptiMSM® may empower an active individual to return to training quickly by decreasing muscle pain, bolstering redox capacity, and mitigating inflammatory cytokines. In addition to this, scientific evidence behind OptiMSM® demonstrates improvements in skin wrinkles, elasticity and firmness in as little as 8 weeks (click here to read more). Furthermore, a gene analysis study demonstrates that OptiMSM® helps to modulate key regulators responsible for skin health and appearance.  All this makes OptiMSM® an interesting option to food supplement and sport nutrition companies which are aiming to differentiate their product offer when targeting the female audience.

Latest research on XanMax shows promising results on Eye Health.

Vision deterioration is not necessarily a consequence of aging alone. The human eye is continuously exposed to different wavelengths and intensities of light which can also result in deterioration. There are many elements including Lifestyle, smoking, alcohol consumption, prolonged exposure to blue light (due to the usage of mobile phones, laptops, etc.), UV damage, diabetes and obesity which can also cause visual impairment.

Oxidative stress results in diverse changes to retinal organs and tissues and according to research, macular pigments (lutein and zeaxanthin) existent in the central macular region, provide protection from photo damage by absorbing blue light and also, thanks to their anti-oxidant activity.

Ocular photo toxicity is thus mitigated by our efficient anti-oxidant system, in both the youth and elderly. Among all the various carotenoids, only lutein and zeaxanthin have been known to accumulate in the macula, providing beneficial effects as anti-oxidants. Therefore supplementation with these carotenoids may be important for maintaining optimal eye health. 

A recent study published by Katra Phytochem, shows that regular supplementation with XanMax® 2002 oil (special lutein and zeaxanthin combination) extracted from Marigold flowers, may help to maintain a healthy macula through deposition of optimal levels of carotenoid pigments and antioxidative enzymes. Furthermore, a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel pilot study (awaiting for pubblication) carried out in 60 elderly volunteers to evaluate the efficacy of XanMax® 2002 in improving MPOD levels, has shown promising results in this area.

Katra range also includes lutein esters and zeaxanthin (different concentrations) in powder, beadlets and oil. Visit our dedicated page or contact us to learn more.

Botanical extracts with functional carriers? Discover our offer

Most standardised dried extracts and powders are supported on carriers such as maltodextrin and silicon dioxide. Very recently our new partner Nating, has developed new lines of botanical extracts with functional carriers (buckwheat and spelt), aimed to offer additional health benefits. These benefits have been preliminary evaluated with in-vitro studies, and have demonstrated positive results such lower glycemic index compared to standard maltodextrin, among others.

Furthermore by adding buckwheat into the production process,  these botanical extracts may benefit from flavonoids such as rutin and quercetin, with traditionally strong antioxidant and blood vessel protection properties. The high fibre content also facilitates and regulates intestinal transit, and may act as a potent appetite suppressant.

The spelt-based botanical line is naturally enriched with selenium, one of the trace elements contained in spelt which can be associated to healthy hair and nails.  Spelt is also rich in beta-glucans proteins, vitamins and mineral salts and low in fats.

The science and traceability behind Bacognize®

Clinical research indicates that Bacognize® may offer a broad array of benefits for cognitive health linked to major neuroprotective mechanisms including neurotransmitter receptor (serotonin) binding activity. This is thanks to its natural spectrum standardization to specific bacopa glycosides, tested and confirmed for serotonin receptor activity.

Furthermore, Bacognize® full traceability and strict controls on impurities and heavy metals, make a clear point of distinction with other bacopa extracts, as impurities and heavy metals are a concern for this plant, backed by thousands of years of traditional use.

Bacognize® has 3 human clinical studies and 3 preclinical studies for memory, mood, and focus and can be used in daily life or specifically in sports to help focus without using stimulants. Clinical research is available from our Bacognize® dedicated page.

Golden Omega Fish Oil Concentrates: Purity you can see

When you look through our Golden Omega fish oil concentrates, you can see clear and perfectly transparent oils. This is because all our concentrates are typically Gardner Gardner colour 3 or below. And there is more.

All the crude oil used as raw material in Golden Omega´s Fish Oil production has been verified as “pure anchovy from the South Pacific Ocean”.  Golden Omega’s manufacturing facility is strategically located in the middle of the richest fishing ground for anchovy in the world, and it is also vertically integrated from fisheries which guarantees control over the supply chain and full traceability from the fishing to the final Omega-3 product.  The crude oil is sourced from selected Friend of the Sea and IFFO RS certified fishing companies in Chile and Peru, including its shareholders.

Due to the strategical location and the freshness of the starting material, Golden Omega Fish Oil Concentrates have a very good sensory profile.  The new manufacturing plant uses the latest technology and can guarantee good organoleptic properties, with very low peroxide and anisidine values (TOTOX is typically 3 - 5).  Furthermore, the levels of contaminants are far below the established European regulatory guidelines.
