VITAFOODS reopened its doors again at one of the first European exhibitions

LEHVOSS Group presented its broad portfolio of nutraceutical ingredients, PHARMAGNESIA® nutrition minerals and pharma excipients at the world’s biggest event for nutraceuticals. After having the show be put on hold in 2020 due to the pandemic, the October event in Geneva has been among the first in Europe to allow visitors in person. Our team of LEHVOSS colleagues across Europe had the pleasure to welcome more customers and suppliers than expected given the ongoing challenging travel situations around the globe.

Thank you to all of those who attended the show this year. We valued your participation very much and it gave us a wonderful opportunity to share with you some of the exciting new ingredients we have to offer.

In case you were unable to attend the show, please visit our web pages on nutraceuticals and minerals or simply access to our LEHVOSS Nutrition WebApp. Our local sales representatives will be happy to assist you. 

We look forward to seeing you at Vitafoods 2022 in Geneva, from the 10th - 12th May, same stand location and number (F84).

Longvida® winner of the Nutraingredients USA Awards 2021

LEHVOSS Nutrition is pleased to announce that Longvida® Optimized Curcumin® has won the “Nutrition Research Project” at the Nutraingredients USA Awards 2021. The award was obtained thanks to the recent 12-weeks, double-blind, placebo-controlled, partial replication study published in 2020, which confirmed further evidence of Longvida® benefits to mood and working memory in healthy older people.

The research addresses a global public health concern regarding the need for cognitive support through improved mood, working memory, spatial memory, concentration, sustained attention, and fatigue. Many of these attributes have been linked to cognitive decline.

NATURAL VS SYNTHETIC IODINE: Is there a difference?

Iodine can be found naturally in a few food sources, particularly white fish, dairy and seaweed – with seaweed being the only natural and good source of this essential nutrient iodine.  For artificial supplementation, synthetic potassium iodide is used.  One way in which synthetic sources of iodine differ from natural sources is the way in which the body absorbs the nutrient. Iodine is an essential nutrient in the diet, and one that is increasingly lacking.  In a recent report from the Iodine Global Network cites an EU funded project that concludes “Europe is an iodine deficient continent”.

Independent clinical trials have shown that potassium iodide releases iodine into the system quickly and can cause a spike in iodine levels, and is quickly excreted

Product Highlight: Coconut Water Powder (High Potassium)

Our coconut water powder is 100% cold water soluble and vegan, with no added ingredients and with minimum 6000mg per 100g of potassium content on specification. This is a great product for creating functional beverages, offering interesting solutions for sports nutrition products. The delicate “fresh coconut” flavour and aroma makes it an ideal ingredient for ready to drink sachets, liquid shots, superfood blends and other interesting applications that require a natural source of potassium and where solubility and good taste are fundamental.

Generally speaking, coconut water powder offers a convenient way to formulate and consume coconut water, providing all the benefits of pure coconut water without the need of using preservatives or refrigeration to maintain its stability. Coconut is a good source of natural B vitamins and minerals, mainly magnesium and potassium, which are key electrolytes that would need to be replaced for proper rehydration. Potassium also plays a key role in maintaining muscle and nerve function.

Tinofend®: the natural solution for beneficial histamine effects… and more

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.

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.

Did you know that…..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”.

Looking for THE Vitamin C? Try PureWay-C®

PureWay-C® is different from other forms of vitamin C because it includes naturally derived lipid metabolites of lipid triglycerides and citrus bioflavonoids to enhance the uptake, distribution and release kinetics of ascorbic acid. The lipid metabolites are derived from safe plant sources, and mixed with ascorbic acid during the manufacturing process.

Research conducted compared cellular uptake of several forms of vitamin C and found that two hours after treatment with the vitamin, human T-lymphocyte treated with PureWay-C® contained higher vitamin C level than any other treatment group evaluated.

Available in granular, fine and extra-fine powder grades and cold-water soluble powder for liquid applications. Discover more about PureWay-C® mechanism of action, clinical studies and available grades. Visit our dedicated page or contact us.
