Driven by innovation and backed by science, we make your products heart healthy
A healthy heart and blood vessels need the right nutrition and an active lifestyle. But our lives and habits have changed – and so have our diets. As a result, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) such as coronary heart disease, peripheral vascular diseases and stroke are the number one cause of death, globally.
With bioactive ingredients and smart formulations, we contribute to heart-healthy diets worldwide. We offer high quality omega-3 oils, plant sterols, the powerful antioxidant vitamin E and carotenoids, as well as vitamins D, B12 and K, all of which are known to support a healthy cardiovascular system. Thus supplementation with the right nutrients can protect millions of hearts around the globe.
Be it in dietary supplements, in functional or medical food or beverage products, we develop holistic concepts that help people to maintain a healthy diet and support an active lifestyle. With more than 150 years of expertise, we are your preferred partner for all aspects of developing and marketing heart-healthy products, including regulatory support.
Cardiovascular disease risk factors, which include hypertensive heart disease, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease or peripheral vascular disease, can lead to heart failure, lethal heart attacks, thrombosis, lung embolism and strokes.
These conditions are not only age-related: more and more younger people are suffering from cardiovascular health concerns. According to the World Health Organization, CVDs are the number one cause of death worldwide. The good news is that a healthier lifestyle and an appropriate diet can significantly reduce the risk and even improve the condition of those already affected.
For example, a 40-year-old man who reduces his LDL-cholesterol level by 10% also reduces his risk of heart disease by an impressive 50%. Starting at the age of 60, he will reduce his risk by 25%. To reduce the risk of developing coronary diseases or stroke, LDL-cholesterol levels should be monitored and managed from an early age.
