Oleanolic acid from olive leaves, a new ingredient from Deretil Nature, is a pentacyclic triterpenoid compound. It has a wide range of positive health effects that may position it as an effective ingredient for nutritional products.
Numerous in vivo and in vitro scientific studies have highlighted evidence of the ability of both OA and, more broadly, the mix of triterpenes found in the olive leaf, to positively impact different health biomarkers.
It has been widely demonstrated that pentacyclic triterpenes have interesting biological activity, which is useful for the development and manufacture of many food supplements.
This new ingredient from Deretil Nature contains not only oleanolic acid but a mixture of other pentacyclic triterpenes such as maslinic acid and ursolic acid, which show a synergistic activity between the three.
There is reported evidence of the activity of oleanolic acid and its contribution to achieve healthy blood glucose levels. In addition, it may help in the modulation of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism and support healthy blood pressure levels.
Many studies also show the good properties of this active for achieving healthy skin, as a function of its ability to support healthy inflammation processes. Recent studies also show positive results in the improvement of hair quality. These properties are so useful in the manufacturing of natural cosmetics.
At Deretil Nature, together with our distributor in Spain, Nutris Ingredients, we would like to present this new active with 40-60 % of Oleanolic Acid, 15-30 % of Maslinic Acid and 1-5 % of Ursolic Acid.
