Naturex unveils new health ingredients at Vitafoods 2012


Avignon, 16th May – Naturex will display a variety of new ingredients at Vitafoods that will help functional food, beverage and dietary supplement manufacturers bring fresh and innovative concepts to market. In addition, the group will be showcasing some of its bestselling ingredients in various applications.


The launch of Utirose™ within NAT life™

It is estimated that 50% of women at some point in their life will experience urinary discomfort. Naturex is committed to helping decrease the number of women suffering from Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) thanks to Utirose™, the latest innovation from the NAT life™ range. Extracted from hibiscus flower, this ingredient helps to reduce the incidence of UTI among women who are particularly susceptible to reoccurring episodes. Its unique composition makes it the natural solution to relieve women from daily pains. Utirose™ will be presented in a seminar session, on May 22nd, at 3.15 pm.


The NAT activ® range extended with Iridoforce™ and GrapePure™

In an ever ageing world, painful joints and arthritis are becoming a major concern and offer huge market opportunities. Known to relieve rheumatism, Iridoforce™ is a devil’s claw extract found in Southern Africa. This ingredient is the natural solution to help reduce pain and improve joint health.

Naturex harnesses the power of grape seeds in GrapePure™.  Derived from polyphenols, the secret of this extract is its high content in flavanols and its unique antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action.  To provide its customers with a premium product, the group has carefully selected two of the world’s most famous areas in grape cultivation: Champagne and Burgundy.
