Verdure Sciences Webinar: Formulating with Adaptogens

Watch and enjoy this exciting webinar from Verdure Sciences hosted by Jim Roufs, MS, RD, as he explains how adaptogens have gained traction and popularity as consumers continue to focus on their overall mental health, sleep, and immune wellbeing.

Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that help the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether it’s physical, chemical or biological. These herbs and roots have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic healing traditions. In the ancient and sacred language of Hinduism, Ayurveda means “science of life” or “knowledge of life and longevity”.

This webinar takes a deep dive into the research associated with a few lead solutions, including the immune support research behind Tinofend® Tinospora cordifolia, stress mediating and cognitive support on Bacognize® Bacopa monnieri, as well as clinical support of the advantageous adaptogenic Restoridyn®, a blend of curcuminoids and pomegranate ellagitannins for immune health and overall wellbeing. It also offers additional insights on ashwagandha and holy basil. Access to the webinar is available here.

Product Highlight: Magnesium

Featuring LEHVOSS Nutrition magnesium range

Scientific literature provides extensive evidence of widespread magnesium deficiency and the potential need for magnesium repletion in diverse medical conditions. Magnesium is an essential element required as a cofactor for over 300 enzymatic reactions and is therefore necessary for the biochemical functioning of numerous metabolic pathways. Inadequate magnesium status may impair biochemical processes dependent on sufficiency of this element. Emerging evidence confirms that nearly two-thirds of the population in the western world are not achieving the recommended daily allowance for magnesium, a deficiency problem contributing to various health conditions.1

According to a recent review paper, produced by a collaboration between the School of Dentistry ant the University of Rwanda College of Medicine & Health Sciences and Harvard University, metabolism of vitamin D may be ineffective in people who are deficient in magnesium.

Tinofend®: New addition to our range from Verdure Sciences

Tinofend® is a proprietary Tinospora cordifolia extract, standardised to active polysaccharides, with clinical studies showing positive benefits on immune function, antihistamine, adaptogenic and allergy support.

Tinospora cordifolia is an all-natural herbaceous vine native to India, commonly used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurvedic physicians used parts of the entire botanical in their traditional remedies. It is widely consumed in Ayurveda as part of rasayana (rejuvenators), and its Sanskrit name, Amrita, translates to “immortality”.

Scientific research on Tinofend® has shown significant decrease of symptoms related to allergic rhinitis, stimulation of the activity of white blood cells, which regulate the immune response and reduction of the number of eosinophils (immune cells that release histamine). This makes Tinofend® an interesting ingredient for allergies and immunity support.

Citrus Bioflavonoids: New study shows benefits on recovery for cyclists

Citrus bioflavonoids are compounds found in citrus fruits like tangerines, oranges, and grapefruit. Research on Citrus bioflavonoids has shown a variety of benefits which have made this ingredient ideal for applications targeting support for the immune system, respiratory health, cognitive health, vascular integrity, metabolism, cholesterol, joint health and systemic antioxidant support among others.

Hesperidin is a bioflavonoid, which has been reported to boost recovery after intense exercise by improving oxidation and inflammation. A recent study (2021) mentioned on Nutraingredients has shown that acute and chronic intake of 500mg of 2S-hesperidin in amateur cyclists, significantly improved anaerobic performance. It was also aimed to explain the metabolic, biochemical and molecular mechanisms by which this happens. Click here for access to the original article.

LEHVOSS Nutrition offer a fully, technical approved Citrus bioflavonoids which is suitable for use in food supplements. This material is a fine powder (80mesh) with minimum 60% Hesperidin by HPLC, from sweet oranges.

Sports and Active Lifestyles: What LEHVOSS Nutrition has to offer.

Nowadays, active and sports driven people are looking for healthy ways to reach the physical performance they desire while maintaining focus and positivity towards exercise. 

Whether your customer is an active person looking to exercise 3-4 times per week or an athlete, LEHVOSS Nutrition can offer some interesting solutions and great formulation ideas.

The role of inflammation and oxidative stress is key, particularly in sports recovery.
