What is Oligonol® ?
To truly understand Oligonol as an ingredient, we must first talk about polyphenols. Polyphenols are a group of plant-based chemicals that are rich in antioxidants. Some of the most famous polyphenol-rich foods are dark chocolate, green tea, berries and flaxseed. While there are hundreds of polyphenols that exist in the natural world, Oligonol, an all-natural extract from lychee (a tropical fruit that’s native to China) is unique in that it contains a higher level of these polyphenols than you can receive from simply eating the fruit on its own. With a hard exterior and sweet, fleshy interior, lychee has been prized not only for its delicious taste, but also its myriad of health benefits. Since this fruit is only grown in summer and in tropical climates, fresh lychee can be hard to find in grocery stores across the U.S.
With lychee’s powerful potential in mind, researchers in Japan developed Oligonol as a natural supplement, directly manufactured from the fruit through a proprietary technology. Due to its low molecular weight, Oligonol is easily absorbed into the body, and therefore offers excellent bioavailability. Compared with other polyphenols like quercetin and flavanols, Oligonol beats out the competition when it comes to quick and effective absorption.
What are the benefits of taking Oligonol?
Due to its powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, Oligonol can be used as a supplement to help improve your blood circulation.* Clinical studies have also shown that Oligonol promotes visceral (belly) fat reduction and can help with skin health. Find out more below why Oligonol has been referred to as some as the “All-Natural Fountain of Youth.”.
Poor circulation isn’t just about cold hands and feet. In fact, it can lead to a series of health issues because we need our blood to flow properly and carry oxygen and other nutrients through our body. When your blood isn’t flowing properly, it can affect your skin, your energy levels and your heart. Human studies show that Oligonol promotes circulation by relaxing blood vessels and acting as a potent antioxidant (6,900 ORAC).*
Oligonol might just be an athlete’s secret weapon. Taking Oligonol as a supplement can help your overall performance because it supports a healthy response to exercise-induced inflammation.* This inflammation is the body’s response to injury due to intense physical activity. Prolonged inflammation can lead to muscle soreness, muscle damage, and fatigue. Oligonol reduces pro-inflammatory compounds and free radicals which increase oxidative stress, leading to a faster recovery.*
If you’re over 40, you may start to notice more wrinkles and brown spots appearing on your skin, which although are perfectly normal as you age, they aren’t exactly a welcome sight. Due to its strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, Oligonol can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and brown spots, giving your skin a healthier, youthful glow.* Studies have also shown that Oligonol can help to prevent the glycation of collagen, a major contributing factor to skin aging.*
Visceral fat, also known as belly fat, is extremely bad for our health. Storing high amounts of visceral fat is associated with increased risks for serious health challenges. According to a 2009 study published in Phototherapy Research, Oligonol may offer weight management effects by stimulating the breakdown of fat.
Phenolic-rich foods like lychee are great for your heart, so it comes as no surprise that taking Oligonol can help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.* Oligonol not only supports healthy blood flow, it also supports platelet function, or normal blood clotting.*
