Lanzan nuevo extracto del kiwi que ayuda la digestión de proteínas
Pharmactive (Madrid, Spain) has unveiled a kiwi extract called KWD+ to promote protein digestion, which the company is positioning to three different health demographics: sports enthusiasts, the elderly, and vegans. Kiwi fruit is well-known for its antioxidant activity and positive impact on digestions, which can be attributed to the presence of actinidin, an enzyme that helps break down proteins and enhance their absorption.
KWD+ is standardized to at least 0.15% actinidin, and 0.1% Aktinnamics, a set of characteristic kiwi antioxidants, chiefly phenolic compounds, that have shown anti-inflammatory properties in vitro and in vivo. Sourced from traditionally cultured kiwi fruits in New Zealand, Pharmactive states that it applies its proprietary technology to concentrate to the proteolytic enzymes five-fold more than fresh kiwi fruit.
