Breko Olivex standardised polyphenols extract

Wednesday, 14 May, 2014 | Supplied by: Chemiplas Ltd

Olivex is a natural, standardised polyphenols extract made from selected French olives offering guaranteed contents in hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol. The manufacturing process of GRAP’SUD using only water and ethanol (<30%) allows preservation of the active principle properties. Extracted exclusively from the fruit, Olivex provides the benefits of the Mediterranean diet without fat content and calories.

For years, olives and olive oil have been of significance to Mediterranean culture; health and prolonged life expectancy. Olives contain several polyphenolic compounds with benefits partly attributed to powerful antioxidant and anti-free radical activity.

Olives are harvested in Languedoc-Roussillon, in the south of France, where the major GRAP’SUD plants are located. The rigorous selection of GRAP’SUD’s raw materials as well as its unique process that preserves environment enables high levels of hydroxytyrosol (HT) and tyrosol (T).

Olivex liquid also presents a whitening effect, inhibiting the synthesis of melanin by the melanocytes cultivated with or without α-MSH, the hormone that stimulates the synthesis of melanin.

Used in food supplements or in functional food, the hydroxytyrosol content provides antioxidant activity, higher than vitamin E. The company says a study on the effect on peroxide lipids in the LDL has shown that Olivex reduces lipids per oxidation in the lipoproteins by 80%. As a daily intake, it is recommended to ingest 100 mg of Olivex, corresponding to 50g of olives.
