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.

These highly standardised grape extracts contain a broad spectrum of polyphenols with many properties that are beneficial to health. In vitro and in vivo studies indicate that wine grape polyphenols exhibit antioxidant, antithrombotic and blood pressure-reducing properties and thereby promote cardiovascular health. In addition, a human study conducted in healthy subjects at high metabolic risk revealed that the grape polyphenol extract exGrape™ TOTAL can counteract high oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation and insulin resistance.

Many studies provide evidence for the positive health-related effects of phenolic compounds from olives, such as tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol. These have been shown to protect the LDL particles from oxidative damage, a protective mechanism in the prevention of cardiovascular risks. Furthermore, the anti-inflammatory properties and improvements in endothelial function contribute towards protecting the cardiovascular system. Current research is also focusing on the investigation of the effects of olive polyphenols on joint health.

More Information

Resveratrol is a polyphenol that is naturally produced by grapes, blueberries and other plants as a defence mechanism against harsh growth conditions and pathogens. With more than 12,000 published studies and over 170 human clinical trials, resveratrol is considered one of the most well-investigated compounds applied in dietary supplements, functional food and beverages, cosmetics and animal health.

This published research and clinical data suggest that resveratrol can be a key ingredient for healthy living. Veri-te™ resveratrol is produced by Evolva using an innovative yeast fermentation process. This means Veri-te™ is resveratrol is pure and highly concentrated with >98% trans-resveratrol, free of contaminants (e.g. pesticides, emodin & PAHs), consistent from batch to batch and versatile, due to off-white colour, odourless and neutral taste.

The “French paradox” refers to the phenomenon that cardiovascular disease is less prevalent in the French, in spite of a diet that is rich in saturated fatty acids. This has been associated with the daily, moderate consumption of wine. Comprehensive studies support the assumption that the intake of polyphenols from wine has a positive effect on cardiac health.

Ribetril™A, the patented active ingredient in MitoActive™, is a unique bioactive polyphenol alkaloid that only occurs in selected varieties of black and red currants. Ribetril™A increases the number of mitochondria and their activity. This results in improved energy production. Furthermore, Ribetril™A improves microcirculation and tissue regeneration. The optional addition of magnesium to MitoActive™ permits the endorsement of claims relating to health benefits.
MitoActive™ is marketed in the beauty industry as MitoBeauty™. In addition to magnesium, an optional addition of biotin is made to the extract. This allows the additional endorsement of claims relating to beauty benefits.

Fenugreek is used in Ayurvedic medicine and is an impressive plant containing numerous highly useful bioactive substances, such as sapogenins and saponins.
AlphaFen® is a completely new extract from fenugreek seeds with significantly improved bioavailability thanks to its liposomal formulation. The sapogenins and saponins are present in concentrations that are 4 to 10 times higher than in other extracts that are available on the market to date.
AlphaFen® improves sexual health and muscle strength through increasing the overall and free testosterone levels and reducing oestrogen level. In addition, studies have provided evidence for an improvement in the quality of sleep and a reduction in states of anxiety when this fenugreek extract is taken.
AlphaFen® is the first fenugreek product that is fully soluble in liquids, a property that opens up a series of new potential applications. The essential oils that underlie the strong odour and taste have been substantially reduced in an innovative manufacturing process.
