Allied has developed several carotenoid products for the dietary supplement industry, including oil suspensions for soft gel capsules and products for tablets and hard-shell capsules.
As consumer health consciousness increases, health supplements have become a popular way to prevent diseases and promote health.
While Vitamin A can accumulate in the body and lead to toxicity, β-Carotene is only converted into Vitamin A by the body when needed. As such, β-Carotene is a safer source of Vitamin A. Furthermore, as a powerful antioxidant, β-Carotene can also prevent damage caused by free radicals. Our β-Carotene products with various formulation types can be used for vitamin tablets, soft gel capsules, gummies, powders and energy drinks.
Lycopene is also a powerful antioxidant that protects human body from damage caused by free radicals and prevents the skin from harmful UV rays. Some studies show that Lycopene may also lower the risk of heart disease and lipid oxidation, lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, enhance the body’s immunity system and in particular, prevention of cancer. Allied offers a series of Lycopene products that are ideal for dietary supplements, soft gel capsules and energy drinks.
Eye Health Supplement
Decreased macular pigment in eyes is associated with macular thinning and increased risk of macular degeneration. Lutein may increase macular pigment and macular thickness.
It has been found that people with the highest levels of Lutein in their blood are least likely to develop cataracts and macular degeneration. Lutein also filters the high-energy, blue wavelengths of light from the visible-light spectrum which is believed to induce oxidative stress and possible free-radical damage to the eyes.
Allied offers a free-form type of Lutein which is easier to be absorbed in human body. Our Lutein products can be used for dietary supplements, soft gel capsules and energy drinks.
Skin Care Supplement
Coenzyme Q10 is essential to the transformation of energy in the body and is a vitamin-like substance. While it benefits cardiovascular health and brain diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s, it is also a primary ingredient for the “beauty from within” concept benefitting skin health as well as improving signs of aging.
Allied has introduced specially formulated powders of Coenzyme Q10. These are based on solubilized Coenzyme Q10 with superior bioavailability and stability. Our Q10 products are typically used in innovative food products, dietary supplements and nutritional beverages.
In addition, carotenoids with strong antioxidant properties are also essential for skin health. We offer a wide range of β-Carotene, β-Apo-8'-Carotenal, Lycopene and Lutein products that can be used in dietary supplements and functional drinks.
