INGREDIENTS FOR NUTRACEUTICALS & FUNCTIONAL FOOD


For more than 20 years Breko has been specializing in high grade polyphenol extracts for the Health Ingredients sector and this in close partnership with a number of well-known manufacturers of high-quality raw materials.

The foundation of our portfolio was laid with polyphenol-rich wine and grape extracts. Over the years the product range has been extended by resveratrol and innovative extracts from selected fruits, vegetables and herbs. Numerous scientific studies prove the health benefits of these raw materials. 

In addition to the experience and know-how provided by the manufacturers, Breko is further expanding its own expertise by supporting a wide range of research projects. Based on this knowledge and experience, we will be more than happy to help you develop and optimize your products.

Here you get a first overview of Breko’s Health Ingredients portfolio. We would be happy to consult you further.

  • Resveratrox™, Viniferol™ and Vitisin™ are standardised stilbene (resveratrol) extracts. Resveratrox™ and Viniferol™ are extracted from the shoots of the grapevine, whereas Vitisin™ is extracted from the root. The origin of these grapevines is France, where they are grown, processed and extracted.
  • The monomeric and oligomeric resveratrols (stilbenes) are considered exquisite and natural active ingredients in cosmetics due to their strong antioxidant properties. The contained epsilon-viniferin, a resveratrol dimer, has a higher oxidative potential than trans-resveratrol.

Benefits

Resveratrox™
Monomer and oligomeric resveratrols
Reduces wrinkles through retinoid-like activity, anti-ageing effect in aged fibroblasts and creatinocytes through sirtuin-1 activation and increase of the gene expression of Sirtuin-1
Viniferol™
Epsilon Viniferin (Dimer Resveratrol)
Activates lipolysis (slimming effect) through inhibition of 4 and activation of sirtuin-1, antiseborrhoeic effects through 5-α-reductase inhibition
Vitisin™
Vitisin A and Vitisin B
Reduces skin pigmentation and lightens the skin through tyrosinase inhibition
