It is always an auspicious occasion for everyone at Cambridge Commodities when we welcome a new partner ingredient into the fold, and CholBiome®X3 from ProBiotix® is no exception. Developed by the OptiBiotix® subsidiary with heart health in mind, CholBiome®X3 is a triple-layered food supplement designed to provide a non-pharmaceutical solution to the maintenance of healthy levels of cholesterol. As a GMO-free and vegan-suitable product, the versatility of CholBiome®X3 is just one of the many facets that make it a potential bonanza for your finished products. In this special product-focused article, we will be taking a look at the unique multi-target mechanism utilised by its three layers of core ingredients to provide some insight into why CholBiome®X3 has earned its place in our catalogue and yours.
Layer #1 – Lactobacillus plantarum LPLDL®
When broaching the topic of health through nutritional supplementation, it rarely takes long for the holistic nature of the gut microbiome to enter the conversation. For those not in the know, the gut microbiome represents a living internal ecosystem of microorganisms, bacteria and more that can be found living within the human gastrointestinal tract (GIT). Comprised mostly of foreign agents introduced into the body through external factors, several manufacturers have observed the mounting public awareness of the gut microbiome and the impact it can have on overall health as an opportunity to raise the profile of products that can influence its function.
As a naturally occurring strain of the bacterial species Lactobacillus plantarum, LPLDL® is a proprietary probiotic carefully studied and selected by ProBiotix® for use in CholBiome®X3. Unique not only in its origins, LPLDL® also boasts a clinically proven level of efficiency for the regulation of normal metabolic function under EFSA claims. By metabolising the bile salts in the GIT, LPLDL® supports cholesterol and blood pressure regulation alongside its fellow ingredients.
Layer #2 – Monacolin K from Red Yeast Rice
Extracted from the traditional Eastern culinary and nutritional product, Red Yeast Rice, the Monacolin K used in CholBiome®X3 contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol as the second layer in its cholesterol reduction mechanism. It does this by inhibiting the synthesis of cholesterol by the liver, making it a highly efficacious natural ingredient for managing one’s cholesterol.
Layer #3 – Niacin
With its EFSA permitted claims for contributing to the function of a normal energy-yielding metabolism, Niacin (otherwise known as Vitamin B3) hardly needs an introduction. Nevertheless, its presence in CholBiome®X3 cannot be overlooked as it makes up the third layer of cholesterol-reducing action, modulating the degradation of fats in the cells. Another natural, vegan-friendly ingredient, Niacin rounds out the CholBiome®X3’s already robust nutritional profile with time-tested success.
The bottom line
According to the British Heart Foundation an approximated 7.4 million people live with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK alone and many researchers have agreed that supplementation may be an effective way to curb the risk of developing heart conditions through daily maintenance. Innova Market Insights has recorded a 7.77% CAGR of probiotic product launches carrying a heart health claim since 2015, evidencing a growing market segment being catered to through heart health positionings. With CholBiome®X3, you can benefit from a finished product that establishes itself as a formulation that goes above and beyond for quality and effectiveness.
