The Canadian Natural Health Product Directorate (NHPD) has granted a Natural Product Number (NPN) for Naturex’s Svetol green coffee bean extract for its benefits on weight management and cardiovascular health.
The NHPD has allowed the French botanical extract giant to use two claims concerning weight management and cardiovascular health for its green coffee extract, facilitating the use of Svetol at a daily dose of 400 mg in supplements that target weight loss.
The NHPD has developed a monograph about green coffee bean extract based on research from 2 clinical studies using Svetol. The monograph confirms the strong efficacy on weight management and the high quality of this ingredient, said the company.
“With this new recognition, our clients know that they can rely on us to provide them with innovative ingredients that are backed by strong science and approved by health authorities,” said Maxence Duprez, Sales Director for Canada.
Naturex’s traditional extraction process ensures a well-balanced chlorogenic acids profile, claimed the company, while most other green coffee bean extracts on the market that primarily focus on one particular acid. This distinct profile preserves all the active molecules found in coffee and proves to be most effective in clinical studies.
