Pharmactive introduces botanical complex for cold and flu treatment


The complex of olive leaf & ribwort plantain supports immunity, respiratory function in edible formats

Madrid based Pharmactive Biotech, S.L., has recently introduced its new botanical combo, Isenolic® COMPLEX, composed of its branded Isenolic® olive leaf extract (Olea europeana L.) and ribwort plantain (Plantago lanceolata).

The complex is uniquely formulated to tackle cold and flu symptoms, including throat irritations, and coughs. It is highly water-soluble and can be readily formulated into multiple palate-pleasing applications, including foods, beverages, beverage shots, and gummies.

Isenolic COMPLEX delivers multi-target mechanisms of action, and works on several levels. The Isenolic component of the formula is standardized to 4% elenolic acid, the key bioactive of olive leaves. This compound has a history or scientific studies and in vitro tests demonstrating its capacity to help curb viral life cycles and support the immune system. Isenolic was shown in a recent study to suppress 65% of influenza-A virus activity after infection, in vitro in an especially sensitive cell line.

Ribwort plantain boasts an extraordinary source of phenylethanoids coupled with a dense concentration of bioavailable verbascosides. These two phytochemicals have exhibited multifaceted beneficial capabilities, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, tissue-healing, and antibacterial activity 1 against a variety of gram-positive and gram-negative pathogenic bacterial strains, including Streptococcus pneumonia.

Isenolic olive leaf extract is locally sourced from olive trees grown in Mediterranean fields and is extracted under a fully controlled process that ensures the highest purity and potency. The plantain leaves are supplied by trusted farmers in Europe. Isenolic COMPLEX carries kosher, halal and doping-free certifications.
