Roelmi HPC (Milan) will showcase its new healthy-cholesterol ingredient, SelectSIEVE OptiChol, at the SupplySide West trade show, taking place October 31 to November 4, 2022, in Las Vegas (Booth 3432).
SelectSIEVE OptiChol comprises standardized polyphenols from olive (Olea europaea). The company says SelectSIEVE OptiChol has been clinically shown “to modulate the whole lipidemic profile and related dyslipidemia parameters by downregulating total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and non-HDL cholesterol, together with an increase of HDL cholesterol. It also demonstrated activity in reducing other risk factors of cardiometabolic disease by improving systolic blood pressure and pulses, reducing fasting plasma glycaemia, and decreasing serum uric acid.”
It continues: “Derived from a circular economy involving only olive byproducts of the variety Coratina, an Apulian native cultivar, the ingredient is particularly rich in hydroxytyrosol, widely described in literature and recognized by EFSA for reducing oxidative stress, being active in lipid metabolism, and protecting body cells or LDL from oxidative damages.”
