ZeaONE® Zeaxanthin

ZeaONE® Zeaxanthin is Kemin’s zeaxanthin ingredient naturally sourced from marigolds. And just as FloraGLO did for lutein, ZeaONE Zeaxanthin is setting a new standard for zeaxanthin. The same “free” form as is found in our diet, ZeaONE Zeaxanthin from marigolds helps you provide the clinically-proven benefits of the zeaxanthin nutrient [also known as dietary zeaxanthin, R, R’ Zeaxanthin] the way nature intended. 

ZeaONE Zeaxanthin is commercially available worldwide under DSM Nutritional Products’ brand OPTISHARPTM Natural*.

Slendesta® is a natural ingredient, extracted from potatoes using a water-based, patented process and is completely stimulant free. It’s not one of the many so-called “fat burners” on the market today and does not artificially stimulate metabolism or cause jitters, bloating or other side effects commonly associated with some other weight management ingredients. The active component in Slendesta is a natural protein called Proteinase Inhibitor II (PI2). PI2 works by enhancing the release of cholecystokinin (CCK), a natural peptide hormone used by the body to signal the brain that food has been eaten which helps to create feelings of fullness and satisfaction.

AssuriTEA® is a proprietary formula of natural water extracts of selected teas standardized for superior catechin and theaflavin content. It is a unique blend of selected green tea and black tea, and provides an especially broad range of bioactive compounds including potent polyphenolic antioxidants from green tea such as EGCG and theaflavins from black tea. AssuriTEA has been clinically researched in men and has been shown to improve antioxidant status and support urologic health in participants with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).2
