From a polyphenol-rich extract for cognitive support to a vegetable-based weight management ingredient, here are some new ingredients debuting at the upcoming SupplySide West show in Las Vegas next month.

Diana Food introduces extracts of polyphenol-rich fruits called Cerebelle

A division of Germany-based Symrise, Diana Food will launch Cerebelle at the show, a proprietary blend of extracts made from two polyphenol-rich fruit: Grape and wild blueberry. Both fruits have been studied for their aging-related cognitive support benefits.

“Preclinical data have shown that polyphenols from Cerebelle can decrease the production of pro-inflammatory compounds in the brain,”​ said Joyce Cascella, consumer health category manager at Diana Food, referencing a study on the ingredient​ published in Journals of Gerontology ​this summer.

“The published pre-clinical study demonstrated that these polyphenols stimulate the production of nerve growth factor in the brain with an increase in synaptic plasticity, leading to an improvement of memory. These three different pathways strengthen our understanding of the capability of Cerebelle to protect against the memory decline associated with aging.”

Diana Foods will be at booth #5081.

Nuherbs introduces Mycelium ingredient

Oakland-based Nuherbs (which we profiled earlier this month​) will be introducing a new fungus-derived ingredient called Mycelium Detox. Like all other ingredients in Nuherbs’ portfolio, the company says this ingredient “is fully traceable, and accompanied by samples of the exact lot of herbs used to make the extract.”

In addition, Nuherbs will showcase its Bespoke Extracts line, which include organic Schisandra, organic Reishi, organic Astralagus and organic Ginseng.

Nuherbs will be at booth #4983.

Nexira launches Okralin

Nexira will introduce its patented weight management (or as the company calls, ‘fat-binding’) formulation Okralin, made entirely from vegetal sources.

The company is still tight-lipped about what exact ‘vegetal sources’ make up Okralin, but it calims that the formulation is supported by a clinical study, which it will present at a conference at its booth #1081 at the show on November 8, 11 AM.

Waitaki Biosciences announces CytoC for musculoskeletal support

New Zealand-based Waitaki Biosciences will be launching CytoC at the show, a patented blend of type I and type II collagen, along with calcium, phosphorus, and glycosaminoglycans to support bone, muscle, and joint health.

In addition, it will display other ingredients in its portfolio, such as ActiPhen (made of New Zealand-grown kiwifruit), CassiPure (made of Ben Ard blackcurrants high in anthocyanin), and PernaTac (Greenshell Mussel Oil Extract from a sustainable aquaculture in New Zealand).

Waitaki Biosciences will be at booth #3153.
