Ubiquinol and Glavonoid Offer Natural Efficiency and Safety

At this year’s HiE, Kaneka Pharma Europe highlighted new application forms for its scientifically-backed ingredients: Ubiquinol, the active form of coenzyme Q10 with higher bioavailability, and the licorice extract Glavonoid™, which helps to reduce visceral fat. The vitamin-like Ubiquinol is important for the body’s energy production and furthermore protects cells from oxidative damage. Both ingredients are produced in a natural way, using special, patented methods.

As one of its basic components, Ubiquinol supports the body’s respiratory chain. This vital process produces more than 95 percent of the energy and supplies it to the heart, brain, muscles and everywhere else that energy is needed. Ubiquinol is therefore essential for high level performance – mentally as well as physically. Since it does not have to be converted into an active form before the body can use it, Ubiquinol has a more rapid and better effect than coenzyme Q10. Peter Lambrechts, Business Development Manager at Kaneka Pharma Europe, comments: “Both the efficiency and the safety of the ingredient have been proven in numerous studies. With its broad variety of health benefits, Kaneka QH™ Ubiquinol allows manufacturers of nutritional supplements and functional foods to target a large spectrum of consumers – from sportsmen and women to stressed-out executives, the elderly and even people suffering from cardiovascular diseases.” Kaneka QH™ Ubiquinol is suitable for use in soft gel capsules, pellets and sticks, as well as in foodstuffs such as chewing gum.

At HiE in Frankfurt, the company also presented its Novel Food-approved licorice extract Glavonoid™. Derived from licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.), it offers unique dual help in fighting visceral fat, thanks to its ability to activate the body’s fat metabolism and suppress fat synthesis. Studies have confirmed that an intake of 100 mg Glavonoid™ per day burns 130 kcal of body fat daily. A recent trial has shown that, in combination with exercise, a single dose of 600 mg Glavonoid™ leads to increased lipolysis in the body by accelerating fat metabolism. The extract can be used for weight management in food supplements and beverages based on milk, yoghurt, fruit and vegetables. It can also be included in products aimed at the sports and fitness market, as well as healthy ageing.
