NeOpuntia™: The world recognized healthy lipophilic fiber
With NeOpuntia™, Nexira offers a weight management premium ingredient, available in organic grade, that already has consumers worldwide convinced. NeOpuntia™, patented powder of Opuntia ficus indica, was developed for its exceptional lipophilic properties. NeOpuntia™ interacts with ingested fats to impede their digestion and absorption. Beyond its lipophilic/weight management properties, NeOpuntia™ offers further health benefits, which fit perfectly with the current trend of the weight management market, targeting not just weight loss but also health related troubles linked to obesity (e.g. Syndrome X). NeOpuntia™ combines weight management and global “health” management wonderfully and a clinical study showed that in addition to its lipophilic properties:
• NeOpuntia™ could help to balance blood lipid levels and reduce cardiovascular risk due to its beneficial effects on HDL cholesterol level
• NeOpuntia™ could play a part in the regulation of the parameters linked to Syndrome X, particularly regarding HDL and triglycerides parameters.
