Evonik launches food supplement with anthocyanins
Date Published：7/9/2020 04:07:32 PM
For its natural supplement MEDOX®, Evonik taps the benefits of anthocyanins sourced from wild bilberries and blackcurrants that support the health of blood vessels. The company reports that for the first time, this product is being directly marketed to end consumers through pharmacies in Germany, as well as through online pharmacies.
MEDOX® offers highly concentrated anthocyanins. Few other plant ingredients for dietary supplements are as well documented scientifically as anthocyanins: the deep purple plant extracts from dark berries have antioxidative properties, contributing to healthier blood circulation.
Dark berries contain high levels of anthocyanins that help fight free radicals that cause illnesses.
“The anthocyanins in MEDOX® are valuable, secondary plant compounds, helping to fight free radicals. They support the health of vessels and veins”, says Thomas Hermann, Head of the Pharma & Food Ingredients Product Line at Evonik.
In total, 24 placebo-controlled double-blind studies have so far been completed in Norway, Italy, Australia, China and Germany on the specific combination of 17 different anthocyanins in MEDOX®. MEDOX® was originally developed in Norway 20 years ago, where it has been produced ever since.
Health Care is part of Evonik’s Nutrition & Care segment that is strategically aligned with long-term and non-cyclical trends that shape society. These include the aging population, a growing middle class and an increasing awareness for healthy and sustainable nutrition worldwide.
