HiE 2012 Frankfurt, booth D2, 13th to 15th November: Kaneka Pharma Europe presents new application forms for Ubiquinol (Kaneka QHTM) and the liquorice root extract GlavonoidTM

Brussels, August 2012 – At this year’s HiE, Kaneka Pharma Europe showcases nutraceutical applications which improve performance and promote a healthy body. The focus is on Ubiquinol, the active form of coenzyme Q10, which supports the body’s energy production process and acts as a powerful antioxidant. Additionally, the company is presenting the liquorice root extract GlavonoidTM, which helps to reduce visceral fat.

As a significant part of the respiratory chain inside mitochondrial cells, coenzyme Q10 is important for energy production. Ubiquinol is the reduced form of coenzyme Q10. Since it is already in its active form and does not have to be converted by the body, it is effective more rapidly. Ubiquinol enhances performance, counteracts fatigue, stress and the visible signs of aging, helps prevent cardiovascular diseases and cares for youthful skin. As a powerful antioxidant, Ubiquinol protects cells against free radicals. Ubiquinol has been well known for a long time, but it is difficult to manufacture on an industrial scale because it is easily oxidized. To harness the ingredient’s full potential, Kaneka succeeded in developing a patented yeast-fermentation technique and is now the only supplier of the world’s first stable and bio-identical Ubiquinol. Kaneka QHTM Ubiquinolcan be used as a nutritional supplement in application forms such as soft gel capsules, pellets and sticks.

Kaneka is also showcasing at HiE new application forms of the liquorice root extract GlavonoidTM, which recently gained Novel Food status from the European Commission. The polyphenols derived from liquorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.) have been discovered to ameliorate abdominal obesity, and to target visceral fat in particular, thanks to a unique two-way efficiency profile: On the one hand, it increases the body’s own fat burning ability, and on the other, it decreases fat synthesis by down-regulating genes that are involved in fatty acid development. An advanced, patented manufacturing process ensures that Glavonoid™ is completely free from glycyrrhizinic acid, a component of liquorice root which is regarded as having cortisone-like side effects. Glavonoid™ can be used in functional food applications such as milk, yoghurt and fruit- or vegetable-based beverages, as well as in food supplements aimed at the markets for weight management and body shaping.
