Advanced, Natural Nutraceutical Solution to Support Mental Agility

The Nutraceutical Business of Lubrizol Life Science Health (LLS Health) specializes in added-value functional food ingredients, enabling differentiated nutraceutical solutions with scientific backing. Our core technology strength in microencapsulation applied to botanical and mineral ingredients, gives us potential basis to enable our customers to develop premium products with leading performance claims. Lipofoods™ Nutraceutical Ingredients is the umbrella brand and includes all existing brands for the microencapsulated products.

During this webinar, the audience will learn about ASTAGILE™ microcapsules, a natural, organic-certified, astaxanthin, microencapsulated with spirulina. The two ingredients have been uniquely combined in a patent-pending product designed to promote mental agility and support healthy ageing for young and senior adults.

In this case microencapsulation gives a solution to astaxanthin stability limitations as it protects and stabilizes the extract of Haematococcus pluvialis rich in astaxanthin while improving its health properties. The combination with spirulina further enhances the antioxidant properties of astaxanthin, amplifying the benefits of both compounds. Recent in vitro and in vivo studies that attest to its high stability, superior antioxidant traits and proven cognitive enhancement effects will be also discussed during this webinar presentation.
