Adding additional benefits with active ingredients

The benefits of microbial actives are not always possible to communicate. By combining probiotics with vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients, it is possible to add additional benefits to the dietary supplement and enhance the value for the consumer.

Vitamins and minerals

Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrientst as they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help build up bones, heal wounds, and strengthen the immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage. In Europe EFSA has created a list of halth claims that can be used directly as text on the final packaging and for other comsumer communications.

Ampli-D - fast delivery of vitamin D

Our bodies can get vitamin D from food, supplements and sunlight. Before this can be used further by the body, it must be processed by the liver and converted into calcifediol. It’s a slow process that can easily take several months to achieve a healthy vitamin D level in the bloodstream. ampli-D® is already in calcifediol form. That means it’s immediately available to be further activated and used by the body.

Cranberry extract

Cranberries have been widely studied for their role in the treatment and prevention of urinary tract infections. Cranberry was originally thought to improve urinary tract health by lowering the pH of the urinary tract, however, more recent research indicates a different mechanism of action for cranberry’s antibacterial effects.1 The American cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) contains discrete flavonoids called condensed tannins, or proanthocyanidins (PACs), that exhibit unique microbial anti-adhesion properties.
