Indena to reveal two new products at Vitafoods 2018

Besides the most recent clinical evidence on its leading turmeric brand Meriva The Life Guardian, a fully food grade delivery system (Phytosome) based on the scientific biomimetic approach, Indena brings to market Quercetin Phytosome and Vazguard

Quercetin is one of the most common flavonoids available in several botanical species. It is normally poorly bioavailable but, through the Phytosome formulation, was shown to provide plasmatic levels up to 20 times (according to a pharmacokinetic cross-over study in healthy volunteers). A new clinical study on sports nutrition will be available at the New Ingredients Zone Theatre, at Vitafoods, on Tuesday 15 May between 16:20-16:50.


Bergamot derived from Citrus bergamia Risso et Poiteau, an endemic plant of the Calabrian region in Southern Italy, is characterised by its unique pattern of polyphenolics, specifically flavonoids, in its juice. Vazguard is the purified Bergamot polyphenols fraction formulated with the Phytosome food grade delivery system to optimise the biological absorption of bergamot polyphenols - normally characterised by poor solubility in both water and organic solvents. However with Vazguard Indena meets the need of a purified and genuine Bergamot extract with excellent phytochemical characterisation and superior bioavailability.

Visit Indena at stand E14 and attend its presentation on Healthy Ageing at the Life Stages Theatre on Thursday 17 May, between 11:00-11:30
