Benefits of Oligonol

Preventing Metabolic Syndrome

Maintaining a healthy weight is an increasingly common concern, both in the United States and around the world. Not everyone gains weight in the same place though. People who have a pearshaped body have smaller waists and carry fat around the hips. People who have an apple-shaped body, on the other hand, have larger waists and accumulate fat around the belly. This kind of fat, known as visceral fat, can collect around the organs and is considered more dangerous than regular fat, because it interferes with normal metabolism. A person doesn’t even have to be overweight to suffer the consequences of visceral fat.

Studies by Duke University and Hokkaido Information University as well as other institutions suggest that Oligonol has beneficial effects on metabolic syndromes, including:

  • Dropping visceral fat levels 7-15% over 6 months
  • Reducing levels of triglycerides and lipid peroxides (fats that have been attacked by free radicals)
  • Regulating special hormones in fat tissues to facilitate fat metabolism

Reducing Heat Stress

Heat stress is experienced by everyone who is subject to high temperatures like construction workers and professional athletes. Heat stress can cause pro-inflammatory compounds in the blood which contribute to an increase in fatigue, muscle soreness, and damage to DNA. Heat stress also induces the body’s sweat response, which results in a loss of bodily fluids and in turn reduces physical performance.

Studies by Act Naturae and Brain Res as well as the Journal of Medicinal Food suggest that Oligonol has regulatory effects on the human body, such as:

  • Reducing serum concentration of inflammatory biomarkers including cortisol, IL-1β, and IL-6 after heat stress
  • Preventing elevation of tympanic temperature and mean body temperature when exposed to high temperature
  • Lowering serum levels of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2)

Maintaining Healthy Skin

Keeping skin healthy has always been a major aging concern. Being dehydrated under low tempuratures, smoking, and being exposed to strong UV rays contribute to skin damage. Damage can contribute to uneveness in skin, sunburn, and wrinkles.

Studies shown at the 16th International Congress on Nutrition and Integrative Medicine as well as other institutions suggest that applying a 10% Oligonol®-CS solution to skin twice a day and eating a 100 mg supplment of Oligonol twice a day help reduce skin thickness and noticeability of wrinkles and pores.

Staying Energized

When more blood is flowing to the muscle, more oxygen is delivered. In the meantime, more waste is being removed from the muscle. This combination prevents fatigue.

Studies published by Adv Exerc Sports Physiol suggest that people who take Oligonol feel less sleepy and stiff and that the ingredient can improve recovery from mental fatigue as well as quality of sleep. The study also indicates that Oligonol can lower urine levels of 8-OHdG, which is a marker for physical and mental fatigue.
