Acteos - High Purity Botanical

Product description

Acteos is a standardized extract from Lippia citriodora cultured cells. Its major active component, Verbascoside, has various biological properties. It is a potent antioxidant that protects liver cells and reduces oxidative stress markers; it shows benefits for neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease; it has an antihypertensive effect and contributes to a better regulation of blood glucose levels.

LIPPIA CITRIODORA, also known as Verbena citriodora (Lemon verbena), was and is still used by indigenous populations in South America for the treatment of respiratory affections such as cold and flu, cough and bronchitis. Lippia citriodora is also used as a relaxant and carminative herb that counteracts the effects of stress, especially those that affect the stomach.

VERBASCOSIDE, also known as Acteoside, is the major active component of Lippia citriodora. It is a secondary metabolite produced by the plant as a defense against insects and parasites. Verbascoside is a phenylpropanoid with a structure characterized by a caffeic acid and a hydroxytyrosol residue bound to a glucopyranoside.

ABR conducted in vitro and in vivo studies that demonstrated Verbascoside anti-inflammatory properties. Specifically, Verbascoside was shown to protect smokers against oxidative stress. Its combined effects on hypertension, glucose regulation, inflammation and oxidative stress make Verbascoside a particularly beneficial compound for prevention and treatment of metabolic syndrome.
ACTEOS 10P is the commercial name of the active ingredient Verbascoside, titrated at 10%, extracted and purified from Lippia citriodora suspension cell culture. Acteos 10P is Novel Food authorized.
