Turmipure Gold® – unprecedented bioavailability
The exceptional bioavailability of our award-winning turmeric extract, Turmipure Gold® means it is significantly more effective than the market standard, at a lower dose. Just 300mg of Turmipure Gold® delivers as much curcuminoids as 1922mg of standard turmeric.
Completely natural and 100% organic, Turmipure Gold® is suitable for use in a wide range of nutraceutical applications, including supplements and – with instant water-dispersibility – food and beverage products, too.
It delivers benefits in areas such as joint health and mobility, cardiovascular health and metabolism, liver health, and memory performance.
Cereboost® – a powerful natural adaptogen
Our Cereboost® American ginseng is a powerful natural adaptogen that delivers scientifically substantiated cognitive health benefits. Caffeine-free and standardised to 10-12% ginsenosides, it has been positively evaluated in a number of human clinical trials with results showing that it works in as little as one hour and offers chronic benefits when used over a longer period. The American ginseng used to produce Cereboost® benefits from a dedicated programme that guarantees a 360° approach to traceability, transparency and trust.

Flowens® – urinary health benefits for women and men
Produced from a full-spectrum cranberry blend, Flowens® is an award-winning ingredient aligned with growing consumer demand for non-pharmaceutical, natural solutions to address urinary symptoms.
It is proven to be safe with no side-effects and is further supported by seven approved health claims related to prostate and lower urinary tract health – six from Health Canada and one from the Colombia National Food and Drug Surveillance Institute (INVIMA).
SWEOAT® beta-glucan – delivering the health power of oats
Our unique oat extract SWEOAT® delivers an exceptional nutritional profile (it’s rich in fibre and high in protein) and a range of proven natural benefits, including cholesterol reduction, glycaemic response and gut health. Our oats are grown responsibly in Sweden and Finland, using only low levels of pesticides and herbicides. They are processed using proprietary technology that preserves their beta-glucan content and ensures effective delivery of health benefits. SWEOAT® is also an excellent plant-based ingredient for providing texture and stability in food products.
Acerolife – less is more
Acerolife is a highly standardised source of natural vitamin C (up to 34%) derived from acerola cherries grown sustainably in Brazil. Our acerola cherries are harvested manually and processed carefully in order to preserve the fruit’s naturally high vitamin C content.
The resulting ingredient, Acerolife, is so rich in vitamin C that a lower dose is required to achieve 100% of the recommended daily intake.
It is ideal for dietary supplements and food and beverage products and is available carrier-free and in both organic and conventional formats.
