Our Artificial Intelligence solutions, developed by our experts, NOL Datasolution to Create & NOL Compliance to Launch your products, inform you :  

 

In collaboration with Amway (USA), Nutraveris, the leading European consultancy in nutrition and health, has obtain two news novel food approvals by EFSA. These applications were related to two specific chia seeds extracts (Salvia hispanica L.), on Chia seed fiber and one Chia seed protein preparation, for use in food supplements and in a range of foodstuffs. The target population was adults from the general population, excluding children, pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Nutraveris: two news novel food approvals by EFSA

 

Submitted as soon as the new novel food regulation was in place, both applications have been evaluated simultaneously.

EFSA recognized that both Chia seed extracts are safe for the use of food supplements intended for the general population, and in several food categories such as milk products, confectionery or fruit juices and other beverages.

These successes demonstrate once again the strengths of Nutraveris, either in the preparation and submission of Novel Food applications, and in its follow-up during EFSA evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact our team to obtain authorization for your ingredients.

This randomized, controlled, in vivo study evaluated the effect of 50 mg/kg/d of lutein supplementation during 14 days, on ethanol-induced memory deficits in the object recognition task in adult Wistar rats.

Rats were exposed to ethanol (3 g/kg/d), during 7 days, after 8 days of lutein supplementation.

Ethanol administration induced a memory deficit and increased acetylcholinesterase activity, however, it did not alter the parameters of oxidative stress, evaluated in the cortex and hippocampus. Oral administration of lutein attenuated memory deficit (Figure) and the increase of acetylcholinesterase activity induced by ethanol.

ethanol-induced memory deficits

Effect of administration of lutein (50 mg/kg), ethanol (3g/kg), and the co-administration of ethanol and lutein on the discrimination index in the object recognition task. Data are mean ± SEM, for n = 10-11 animals in each group. * Indicates a significant difference (p < 0.05) compared to the control group (Olive oil/Saline).

 

These results provide evidence that lutein is an alternative treatment for ethanol-induced memory deficit, and suggest the involvement of cholinergic system.

This randomized, open-label, placebo-controlled and crossover study examined the effects of fresh pear consumption (2 pears per day for 12 weeks) in middle-aged/older adults with metabolic syndrome.

The effects of pear was compared to a calorie-matched control drink. Both supplementation periods were separated by a 4-week washout.

pear

After 12 weeks, a trend to decreased in systolic blood pressure (p = 0.07) and a significant decreased in pulse pressure (p < 0.05) has been noted after the pear supplementation. Moreover, leptin concentrations were lower in the pear group than in controls (p < 0.05). In addition, waist circumference was lower after pear supplementation than after the control drink (p < 0.05). Similarly, waist-to-hip ratio was significant lower in the pear group in comparison to control at 6 and 12 weeks (p < 0.05 for both).

 

Therefore, this study suggest that consumption of 2 pears per day can improve the cardiometabolic health and reduce some anthropometric measures in subjects with metabolic syndrome.

This meta-analysis was performed with 17 randomized clinical trials and evaluated the effects of omega-3 supplementation among 3363 patients in the management of dry eye disease.

omega-3 supplementation

Compared with placebo, omega-3 fatty acid supplementation decreased dry eye symptoms (p < 0.001) and corneal fluorescein staining (p = 0.032), whereas it increased the breakup time (p < 0.001) and Schirmer test values (used to test the amount of tears) (p < 0.001). No evidence of publication bias was observed, and sensitivity analyses indicated the robustness of results obtained. Meta-regression analysis showed a higher improvement of dry eye symptoms and breakup time in studies conducted in India.

 

In conclusion, this meta-analysis provides evidence that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation significantly improves dry eye symptoms and signs in patients with dry eye disease.

The effects of alpha lipoid acid (ALA) on plasma lipids remains unclear due to contradictory results obtained in clinical trials. To clarify the effects of ALA, this meta-analysis includes 12 randomized and controlled trials assessing the effects of ALA on lipid profile.

 

alpha lipoic acid

 

Results show that ALA reduces total cholesterol level in comparison to controls (Weight mean difference = -10.18 mg/dL, 95% CI: -16.16, -4.20 mg/dL, p = 0.001). A significant reduction in LDL-cholesterol has also been measured (WMD = -9.22 mg/dL, 95% CI: -18.28, -0.16 mg/dL, p = 0.001). However, no change in HDL-cholesterol has been measured. Regarding triglycerides, the analysis show no significant effect of ALA on triglycerides, except in a subgroup analysis based in health status (diabetic vs. diabetic) in which triglycerides were reduced in both populations.

 

Therefore, ALA reduce plasma lipids. However, the consequences of these changes has to be clarified, notably regarding cardiovascular diseases.
