THE KEY ROLE OF UBIQUINOL IN PHYSIOLOGY AND HEALTH
Ubiquinol is the only lipid involved in the direct transfer of electrons in mitochondria. It does not only act in the electron transport chain for mitochondrial respiration but also is important in synthesis of molecules and in lipid catabolism. This essential role is highlighted in those syndromes associated with its deficiency that courses with ataxia, myalgia, kidney disease, deafness among other symptoms. Ubiquinol is also the main antioxidant in cell membranes and in plasma lipoproteins avoiding lipid peroxidation. It also maintains the activity of vitamin E and other antioxidants in cells and blood plasma. Its importance in health and physiology is highlighted by the fact that decreases in the levels of ubiquinol have been associated with aging, metabolic disease, cardiovascular disease, extenuating exercise and fertility among others. For this reasons, a right balance of its levels is essential to maintain health and physiological processes during life.

VITAMIN K2 MK-7 THE MISSING VITAMIN DISCOVERED
Vitamin K2 is an essential, fat-soluble vitamin. Calcium is the foundation of strong bones, but it relies on vitamin K2 to activate the osteocalcin proteins that put calcium into bone. Without K2, calcium (and vitamin D3) do not function optimally in the body. Excess calcium, however, can be deposited in soft tissues and arteries. This ‘hardening of the arteries’ increases cardiovascular risk. K2VITAL® vitamin K2 MK-7 also activates matrix Gla proteins (MGP) which prevent and reverses arterial stiffness. K2VITAL® provides product extension opportunities in the Bone and Heart categories, as well as extension categories like Woman’s Health and Healthy Aging. Formulation considerations include separation of MK-7 from minerals to help ensure that consumer promises are met.

DELPHINIDIN-RICH MAQUI BERRY EXTRACT IMPROVES BONE METABOLISM AND PREVENTS BONE LOSS
Delphinidin is one of the most abundant anthocyanins found in botanicals including vegetables and fruits. In a preclinical study, a delphinidin-rich maqui berry extract (Delphinol®) demonstrated beneficial effects on bone metabolism - both in vitro and in vivo. The berry extract stimulated osteoblastic differentiation and at the same time, Delphinol® inhibited osteoclastogenesis in primary bone marrow cells through downregulation of specific genes. In addition, micro-CT and bone histomorphometry analyses showed that daily oral administration of the maqui berry extract significantly increased bone formation in two osteopenia mouse models. These results indicate that Delphinol® is a promising phytochemical agent for preventing bone loss and improving bone metabolism.

EFFECTS ON LIPID METABOLISM OF RICH OLIVE EXTRACTS IN POLYPHENOLS
Olive extracts rich in polyphenols produce neurological protection, anti-inflammation, reduce glucose and cholesterol levels, modify the gene expression of lipid metabolism in fish and human cell cultures. The objective is to see if patients with hyperlipidemia treated with hygienic-dietetic measures and the extract obtain benefits in their dyslipidemias. We randomized 33 patients (17 controls and 18 interventions). They left 2 controls. There are no significant differences between the two groups at the beginning. After one month of treatment, the controls show no difference between the initial and final values ??by peer analysis. However, in the intervention group, a significant decrease in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol has been observed. We can conclude that extracts rich in olive polyphenols decrease cholesterolemia and LDL cholesterol. There is evidence of an increase in HDL cholesterol and a decrease in triglycerides.

VIVAPUR® MCG – A POWERFUL STABILIZER FOR NUTRACEUTICAL DISPERSIONS 
As many nutraceutical ingredients are poorly water-soluble, they are often formulated as either nutraceutical suspensions or emulsions. In order to prevent destabilization of the dispersions, for example due to sedimentation, floating or coalescence, appropriate stabilizers are essential. VIVAPUR® MCG is a co-processed composite consisting of microcrystalline cellulose and carmellose sodium with unique suspending and emulsifying properties. Dispersions stabilized by VIVAPUR® MCG are characterized by an outstanding long-term stability, excellent sensory properties and accurate and convenient dosage. Typical applications of VIVAPUR® MCG are vitamin syrups, omega-3-fatty acid emulsions or calcium suspensions. Furthermore, VIVAPUR® MCG can be used to stabilize functional beverages such as dairy-based drinks or vegetable juices. The presentation summarizes the functional properties of VIVAPUR® MCG and demonstrates applications in the field of nutraceuticals.

PALATINOSE™ - THE CARBOHYDRATE OF THE FUTURE FOR OPTIMIZED FUEL MANAGEMENT 
The health and fitness trend continues to expand its influence and many more consumers now realise the importance of staying fit and following a balanced diet. A low glycaemic carbohydrate such as BENEO’s Palatinose™ (isomaltulose) is ideal for use in sports nutrition products, as it has a balanced effect on blood sugar levels and is fully digestible. It provides full carbohydrate energy in a sustained way, eliminating unwanted “boost and crash” blood sugar spikes and it helps to burn fat more effectively. BENEO’s Palatinose™ has a natural, mild sugar-like taste and sweetness and is ideal for use in gels and bars, as well as drinks. As a very low hygroscopic free-flowing powder, it is ideal for powder instant beverages or agglomerates and it significantly reduces the water absorption in blends, minimising the risk of common production issues such as caking and lumping.

ACTIVITIES OF PHOSPHOLIPIDS IN LIVER HEALTH AND GUT PROTECTION
Phospholipids are not only the building blocks of cell membranes, but they act also as essential elements of the metabolism. They enhance the assimilation of nutrients., they act as efficient carriers of components like choline, phosphorus or DHA. Their food supply is mandatory as the internal metabolic synthesis is not sufficient to maintain all their physiological beneficial roles. Phosphatidylcholine supplies choline to liver where it represents the only storage form of choline. It has been shown that this supply is not only essential for an optimal functioning of liver cells, but that it is also able to protect liver health against the consequences of all forms of metabolic disequilibrium like NASH. Phosphatidylcholine is also a part of the mucus which protects the stomach and intestine walls. It is involved in the prevention of the formation of ulcers, and in the diminution of intestinal inflammation, for example in ulcerative colitis. Phospholipids, and mainly phosphatidylcholine, are essential and active components in the protection of liver and gut health.
