High Purity Botanical - Teupol

Product description

Teupol is obtained from cultured cells of Ajuga reptans, a plant used in traditional medicine for the treatment of various ailments including fever, biliary disorders, ulcers and skin diseases. Teupol has a standardized content of Teupolioside, the major active component of Ajuga reptans. In addition to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, Teupolioside act as a modulator of 5 alpha-reductase activity, and can therefore be used to address testosterone-related disorders such as juvenile acne, androgenic alopecia (hair loss) and benign prostatic hyperplasia.

AJUGA REPTANSA belongs to the Lamiaceae plant family, native from Europe, Asia, Africa and naturalized in America and Oceania. Ancient populations used Ajuga reptans for its medicinal effects; nowadays the species is well-known for its antibacterial, antimycotic, astringent and diuretic properties.

TEUPOLIOSIDE, also known as Lamiuside A, is the major active component of Ajuga reptans. It is a secondary metabolite produced by the plant for defensive purposes against environmental agents such as UV radiations. The scarce quantities of Teupolioside in the plant is the reason why this ingredient cannot easily be obtained with classical extraction techniques; its complex chemical structure also makes its chemical synthesis difficult. Only ABR technology can ensure sufficient yields and reasonable production cost.

TEUPOL 10P AND TEUPOL 50P are the commercially available extracts from Ajuga reptans, titrated at 10% and 50% Teuplioside, respectively. Teupol 10P and Teupol 50P are Novel Food authorized.

Due to its effects on testosterone metabolism, Teupol is an ingredient of choice for “men’s health” products, such as products for prostate health or alopecia.
