Citrus aurantium (bitter orange) is one of the most common traditional Chinese medicines, whereas Olea oleuropaea (olive) leaf had been used in ancient Egypt and Greece for its positive effects on blood pressure and inflammation. CitrOlive™ combines these two botanicals to provide synergistic activity to support health.
CitrOlive™ is the product of extensive research into the major phytochemicals, polyphenols and flavonoids that characterize citrus and olive and provide strong antioxidant activity. It delivers phytonutrients common to the Mediterranean diet in concentrated form.
In a proprietary clinical study, CitrOlive™ intake was associated with a decrease in blood triglycerides (-15%) and oxidized LDL levels (-38%), after 90 days as compared to subjects taking a placebo.
In an ex vivo study in rat aortic tissue, CitrOlive™ released endothelial nitric oxide and prostacyclin, causing vascular relaxation.
