FAQS regarding Rosemary Extract
1. What is rosemary extract? How about the antioxidative properties?
The extract is from rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis Linn.), a common household plant that has grown
in the Alps since the middle Ages, and is now found throughout the world. Rosemary has been used for thousands of years as a savory spice, food preservative, in cosmetics and hair products, and as an herbal for a variety of health disorders. Until now however, the exact chemical pathways involved in its beneficial effects have remained unknown.
Carnosic acid, carnosol and rosmarinic acid are the most active compounds of rosemary extract found to have powerful antioxidant activity, and carnosic acid is considered as one of the only antioxidant that deactivates free radicals through a multilevel cascade approach. Rosemary extracts antioxidants are effective when used in: animal fats, mayonnaise, margarine,vegetable oils and fats, dried fruit and nuts, meat products, paprika and spices, feed,pet food and drinks.
2. "Natural antioxidants are less effective than synthetic ones."
Numerous reports in literature as well as our internal studies confirm that in fact rosemary antioxidants are in most applications more effective than vitamin E (synthetic), BHA, BHT, TBHQ and others. In addition to that, rosemary antioxidants are much more high temperature resistant, and its use enables customers to keep clean label on their products and there is no allergen issue.
RFQS about Mulberry Extract
What is Mulberry Extract?
Mulberry Extract is a well known plant worldwide, but there is more than one species of this plant. In Chinese herbology,White Mulberryis the species of choice. It is used for cardiovascular support and blood sugar support. It helps stabilize and optimize the active components in the herb.
Overwhelming scientific evidence from research conducted at top medical institutions in the United States, India, France, and throughout Asia, prove that the Mulberry Leaf is one of the most powerful natural herbal supplements, and it can no longer be ignored as a potent solution to many health issues.
One of the most comprehensive studies was a 5-year research project that conclusively determined Mulberry Leaves to have various preventive effects on adult diseases, weight management and improves overall wellness.
One of the most amazing characteristic that can only be found in the MulberryLeaf is an ingredient known as moranoline (1-Deoxynojirimycin / 1-DNJ) which inhibits an enzyme in the intestinal tract (alpha-glycosidase) involved in the digestion of carbohydrates. Moranoline or 1-DNJ holds back complex carbohydrates, starches, maltose and sucrose from breaking down into glucose. In essence, it actually prevents sugar from entering into the bloodstream. It does this by inhibiting the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol which is a major factor in the development of atherosclerotic plaque. This health advantage (Diabetic Herbal Remedies) proves to be most significant in treating diabetes, which has quickly become one of the leading diseases in the world.
How does 1-Deoxynojirimycin Works?
1-Deoxynojirimycin(DNJ) is a kind of alkaloid present in Mulberry leaves and root bark.DNJ is approved to have effects on lowering blood glucose, Antiviral activity and help to improve skin metabolism and purify skin.
Research shows that when DNJ entered the body, it can inhibit the decomposition of starch and sugar by sucrase, maltase, α-glucosidase, α-amylase enzyme, thus blocking the body's absorption of sugar, and inhibit the increase of glucose without diet change. In addition, DNJ can inhibit the glucose modification process of HIV membrane glycoprotein. Meanwhile, the accumulation of immature glycoproteins may inhibit the cell fusion and the binding between virus and host cell receptor, and the formation of cell body harmony to inhibit the the replication of MoLV so as to inhibit the viral activity.
What’s the effect of 1-Deoxynojirimycin on Blood Lipid Profiles in Humans?
Mulberry leaves are rich in 1-deoxynojirimycin (DNJ), an inhibitor of α-glucosidase. We previously showed that DNJ-rich Mulberry leaf extract suppressed elevation of postprandial blood glucose in humans. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of DNJ-rich Mulberryleaf extract on plasma lipid profiles in humans. An open-label, single-group study was conducted in 10 subjects with initial serum triglyceride (TG) level ≥200 mg/dl. Subjects ingested capsules containing DNJ-rich Mulberry leaf extract at 12 mg three times daily before meals for 12 weeks. Our findings showed a modest decrease in serum TG level and beneficial changes in the lipoprotein profile following 12-week administration of DNJ-rich Mulberry leaf extract. No significant changes in hematological or biochemical parameters were observed during the study period; no adverse events associated with DNJ-rich Mulberry leaf extract occurred.
RFQ about Fenugreek Extract
What is Fenugreek Extract?
Fenugreek, also referred to as Greek hay and fenugreek, is an annual herb that derives from the Ukraine, India, China and the Mediterranean region. The ripe, dry seeds found in fenugreek possess protein, vitamins, niacin, potassium and diosgenin. Fenugreek also contains alkaloids, lysine, L-tryptophan and steroidal saponins. Fenugreek is an over-the-counter supplement available in capsule, tincture and powder form. Multiple studies have indicated there are many health and cosmetic Advantage to consuming fenugreek extract.
What Fenugreek Seed Extract contains?
4.female hormone similar components which stimulate the milk production
What are Furostanol saponins?
Fenugreek Extract Furostanol saponins is especially designed to boost TESTO levels, muscle size and sex drive. Not only does Fenugreek appear to increase natural production of TESTO, it also has a "TESTO-like" structure that may activate the male hormone receptor and produce TESTO-like effects.
How does 4-hydroxyisoleucine compare with other insulin regulators?
It appears that 4-hydroxyisoleucine is far more potent than any other insulin mimetic or insulin potentiator currently in use as a dietary supplement. For example, it has been shown to potentiate insulin secretion 25 times more effectively than leucine, 15 times more effectively than isoleucine, and begins to workout 1/10th the dosage of these two amino acids. It has also been shown to beat out amino acid in terms of insulin potentiation. Moreover, 4-hydroxyisoleucine is unique from these other compounds in that it has a nutrient partioning effect, which means it may help to shuttle nutrients to muscle cells preferentially over fat cells.
The effect of fenugreek 4-hydroxyisoleucine on liver function
Fenugreek is a plant traditionally used for the treatment of diabetes. It contains an unusual amino acid, 4-hydroxyisoleucine, demonstrated to have insulinotropic and antidiabetic properties in animal models. Here we examine the effect of 4-hydroxyisoleucine on liver function and blood glucose in two rat models of insulin resistance, fructose-fed rats and streptozotocin-induced diabetes type 2. In fructose-fed rats, levels of glucose and liver damage marker aspartate transaminase were markedly (84% and 93%, respectively) and significantly elevated compared with controls (p < 0.001 for both). Alanine transaminase was elevated slightly (18%), and all markers were restored to near control values after treatment with 4-hydroxyisoleucine at 50 mg/kg per day for 8 weeks, the effect being significant (p < 0.01) for all markers. This prolonged exposure to 4-hydroxyisoleucine was well tolerated in control animals and did not alter levels of glucose or liver damage markers significantly. In diabetic rats, treatment with 4-hydroxyisoleucine did not affect glucose or liver damage markers, but did improve HDL-cholesterol levels (31% increase, p < 0.05). These findings indicate 4-hydroxyisoleucine as a useful and well-tolerated treatment for insulin resistance, both directly as a hypoglycaemic and also as a protective agent for the liver.
What's the Advantage taken by men?
Fenugreek increases TESTO in men, providing proven Advantages in the gym and the bedroom. A June 2011 study at the Australian Center for Integrative Clinical and Molecular Pharmaceuticals found that men aged 25 to 52 who took a fenugreek extract twice daily for six weeks scored 25% higher on tests gauging libido levels than those who took a Placebo. Also, TESTO was increased by over 20%.
