Phytosterol Benefits for Heart Health
Health-conscious consumers have created a strong demand for foods, beverages and dietary supplements that enhance health and nutrition.
The Phytosterol Benefits of Heart-Healthy PinVita™
Research shows that cholesterol levels in the blood can be substantially reduced and controlled through dietary modification and the intake of highly effective plant sterols, also called phytosterols. In fact, more than 200 human intervention studies have shown that with a daily phytosterol intake of 2 grams, “bad” cholesterol levels can be reduced by an average of 9%. PinVita™ Phytosterols are available as free and esterified forms especially adapted to delivery in foods and dietary supplements.
ActivK™ Vitamin K2 for Cardiovascular Health
Vitamin K is the name of a family of fat-soluble vitamins that consist of two main groups — vitamin K1 and vitamin K2. Functionally, vitamin K2 has the highest bioavailability and efficacy in extra-hepatic tissues. Vitamin K2 activates specific proteins that contribute to balance the role of calcium in the human body. Once activated by Vitamin K2, those specific proteins help the fixation of calcium in the bones. They also help prevent calcium fixation in the arteries. This limits arteriosclerotic plaque formation and thereby assists in unobstructed blood flow and better cardiovascular health. ActivK™ Vitamin K2 encompasses a range of vitamin K2 with the highest purity. Available in oil and powder format, they are easy to incorporate into foods, beverages and dietary supplements.
