Stratum to Present Arterial-Health Ingredient on SupplySide Tour

April 6, 2011

The company says that many scientists now support the notion that controlling the oxidation of LDL cholesterol is essential for maintaining arterial health.

On April 12 during the SupplySide Science Tour being held in Salt Lake City, UT, Stratum Nutrition’s (St. Louis) manager of pharmacology Joseph L. Evans, PhD, will present information on arterial-health ingredient Artinia.

Titled “Effects of Artinia in Cardiohealth: Oxidized LDL as a Biomarker,” the presentation will cover the benefits of Artinia, which combines soluble and insoluble fibers and supports healthy arteries and overall cardiovascular health.

The company says that many scientists now support the notion that controlling the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and not just the level of LDL cholesterol, is essential for maintaining arterial health. This is because the oxidation of LDL cholesterol within the artery wall leads to a series of inflammatory events that can result in the formation of fatty streaks in the artery tissue, which in time can turn into arterial plaque.

Artinia works as an antioxidant, resulting in a reduced level of oxidized LDL. The ingredient is GRAS affirmed and approved by the EU Commission as a Novel Food ingredient. It is vegetarian and gluten free.
