MIRTOGENOL® is a new blended ingredient with an international patent*, made from combining French maritime pine bark extract PYCNOGENOL® and standardized bilberry extract MIRTOSELECT®. Their respective pioneers, Horphag Research of Switzerland and Indena of Italy, jointly developed MIRTOGENOL® after dedicated research in the interaction of these two ingredients. Naturally Plus firmly believes in the potential of this ingredient, hence SUPER LUTEIN MIRTO+ was successfully developed.
PYCNOGENOL® is a natural botanical ingredient extracted from the bark of French maritime pine trees that are 30-50 years old. PYCNOGENOL® has 170 times the antioxidant power of vitamin E, 340 times that of vitamin C, and over 40 types of flavonoids including procyanidin, catechin, and taxifolin.
MIRTOSELECT® is a proprietary bilberry extract produced by Indena of Italy from freshly ripened bilberry fruits harvested between July and September. Bilberry is a wild species of blueberry, carefully selected from over 150 blueberry species. It is a fruit-bearing shrub with strong vitality. Fresh bilberries contain about 4 times the anthocyanin (a type of polyphenol) of blueberry.
