SynBalance® MetSyn ingredient of ROLEMI HPC (Health & Personal Care) is the winner of the seventh edition of NutraIngredients Award Europe for the category Ingredient of the year – Weight Management.

Organized by – one of the principal information website for the functional food and beverage industry – these awards recognize the most promising ingredients, products, businesses, people and initiatives in the nutrition and dietary supplement industry.

ROELMI HPC, a leading company in the production of active and functional ingredients for the cosmetic and nutraceutical markets, has won the award Ingredient of the year for the Weight Management category thanks to SynBalance® MetSyn: a probiotic complex designed for weight control and cardiovascular prevention, working on the gut microbiota modulation. Three probiotic strains (L. plantarum PBS067, L. acidophilus PBS066 e L. reuteri PBS072), carefully selected through extensive in-vitro tests and clinical trial, showed excellent results in improving the lipid and glucose blood profile (lowering LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels), reducing waist circumference linked to a decrease of visceral fat and arterial pressure, with also a beneficial effect on the quality of life.

In recent years, research has focused the attention on the correlation between obesity and alteration of the intestinal microbiota, which is essential for the regulation of the inflammatory and endocrine response, supporting the immune system and ensuring the well-being of the organism.

The gut microbiota plays a key role in weight management and the intake of SynBalance® MetSyn may represent an innovative weapon since it is possible to decline it in different pharmaceutical forms or combine it with botanical extracts and / or other ingredients to support weight control. The main advantage of SynBalance® MetSyn is the strain-specificity of the selected strains in guaranteeing a benefit not only at intestinal level, but on immune functions and on general health.

In conclusion, SynBalance® MetSyn not only provides a short-term effect on body shape, but offers a comprehensive approach focused on prevention. With this innovative ingredient, ROELMI HPC has accepted the difficult challenge of losing and maintaining weight, in a situation where the incidence of overweight and obesity, in Europe and the rest of the world, is showing no signs of slowing down. The global obesity burden requires solutions with a long-term effect and SynBalance® MetSyn perfectly suits this need.
