SOME OF OUR INGREDIENTS

HEMP OIL & CBD

Hemp oil (Cannabis sativa) is very good for health and skin, in fact its composition in fatty acids: linoleic acid (55%), α-linolenic acid (16%) and oleic acid (11%), highly polyunsaturated with a favourable ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 (less than 4) makes it an oil of choice for both food and cosmetics. Its unsaponifiable sterols and vitamins fraction is also interesting. Its topical use is compatible with almost all skin types, for its moisturizing and calming effects, without clogging the pores. It is non-staining and has a non-greasy feel.  

Vidya Europe offers a range of organic hemp oil and its derivatives MADE IN FRANCE. It can be formulated for food, cosmetic or nutraceutical applications. 

Vi-Spo™

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common health problem in middle-aged men. It is characterised by a progressive enlargement of the prostate due to the non-malignant proliferation of smooth muscle and epithelial cells. This enlargement manifests itself clinically in the lower urinary tract (LUTS) such as urgency, frequency, urinary retention, straining to urinate, or the need to get up at night. These manifestations of BPH significantly impair the quality of life of middle-aged men. 

Although various medical treatments are currently available, natural alternatives exist, such as extracts of Florida saw palmetto (Serenoa repens), which are equally effective but without the side effects. 

Vi-spo™ is a supercritical CO₂ extract of Florida saw palmetto, standardised with Beta-sitosterol in addition to fatty acids that have been clinically proven to be effective. Vi-spo™ is part of our Full-iD™ quality charter.

FENUGREEK

Saponins from fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), due to their androgenic action, are of interest in humans for their beneficial anabolic effects, particularly during training. Saponins improve the efficiency of training by increasing strength and muscle mass. 

This extract can complement Afperfit™, an African pepper extract, which increases energy expenditure and boosts thermogenesis via the stimulation of brown adipose tissue, for more results on fat loss. 

Vidya Europe offers a Fenugreek extract titrated to 50% Saponins. 

SKINCERA™ - SKIN HYDRATATION

Summer and heat are not good for your skin. Ultraviolet rays and heat accentuate the ageing of your skin. In addition to the visible signs of this ageing, there is a less visible and more insidious one that can be fought naturally, the insensible loss of water or more prosaically dehydration.  

Indeed, thanks to the ceramide glycosides contained in SKINCERA™, an extract of Japanese Konjac (Amorphophallus konjac), it has been shown to reinforce the skin's natural hydration capacities. A clinical study, published in a scientific journal, demonstrated the effectiveness of SKINCERA™ on hydration, but also on age spots, redness, oily appearance... 

TAMARIND

Tamarind (Tamarindus indica L.) is the fruit of the tamarind tree and is traditionally used as a mild laxative, helping to combat temporary constipation. In addition to intestinal comfort, it acts on digestive comfort by helping to combat bloating and flatulence, and facilitates the functioning of the kidneys and liver. A precious help, at the end of winter, to boost the body, as part of a detox cure for example. 

Vidya Europe offers a standardised extract with 9% tartaric acid.

CURCUMIN - SEASONAL ALLERGY

Runny nose, itchy eyes, itchy throat, the allergy and pollen season is back. A natural solution to resist better? Curcumin! Through its immune stimulating effect and its inhibiting effect on the release of histamine, curcumin has shown its effectiveness on models of asthma and allergies and rhinitis induced by ovalbumin. This has been confirmed in humans. It acts by reducing the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, modulating the mast cell response and stimulating the immune response.  

 Vidya Europe offers a wide range of turmeric (Curcuma longa) extracts, both organic and conventional, with the possibility of having a formulation on request. As turmeric extract is very colourful, the SFT form helps to reduce the yellow colouring of the production sites. 

SUNCA™

The sun is starting to show its face and the beautiful days are coming, we can already see ourselves at the beach for the summer vacations. To be ready when the time comes, there is nothing better than SUNCA™, a sunflower extract (Helianthus annuus) that has proven its effectiveness in a clinical study, published in a scientific journal, for weight loss. This weight reduction being correlated to a melting of visceral fat mass and a reduction in waist circumference. Its impact on fat mass also translating into an improvement in the blood lipid profile. The action of SUNCA™ (with a daily dose of 2x250mg/day) is based on the reduction of the assimilation of calories brought by food, by inhibiting the activity of digestive enzymes. 

Vidya Europe offers SUNCA™ in the form of a powder standardized in chlorogenic acids and without caffeine

AFPERFIT™

It's almost the end of winter and the arrival of the beautiful days that you need to prepare to improve your figure. AFPERFIT™ is an extract of Paradise Seeds (Afromomum melegueta), standardised in 6-paradol, clinically proven to increase energy expenditure. This increase in energy expenditure of 230kcal/day, without additional effort, is significant as it corresponds for example to 45 min of sustained walking. It results from the activation of brown adipose tissue, the tissue that consumes calories to make heat (boosting thermogenesis) and the transformation of white adipose tissue into brown.

HOLY BASIL (TULSI)

January is the month of the arrival of winter's ailments. It is necessary to react and boost your immune system. Holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) one of the pillars of Ayurvedic medicine can help you. The immunomodulatory action of Tulsi was evaluated in a double-blind randomized controlled trial, which showed that the alcoholic extract modulates immunity by improving markers such as IFN-γ and IL-4 levels, T-helper cells and NK9 cells. Tulsi extracts have also been clinically tested positive against viral encephalitis and hepatitis.  

Vidya Herbs manufactures Tulsi leaf extracts, standardized to 2.5% ursolic acid, in the form of powder, granules or SFT beads.


ASDAMARIN™

The holiday season arrives and the time of overindulgence at the table is therefore conducive to digestive disorders, with dyspepsia—or more commonly, indigestion—being the most prevalent. This poor digestion, manifested by bloating, a feeling of fullness, and sluggish digestion, is very uncomfortable.

However, you can remedy this in just 7 days with ASDAMARIN™, a combination of milk thistle and asafoetida that acts simultaneously on the stomach and liver, the two organs directly involved in functional dyspepsia.

The prokinetic function and clinical efficacy of ASDAMARIN™ have been published in scientific journals.

WITHANIA SOMNIFERA (ASHWAGANDHA)

Withania somnifera stimulates the immune system by promoting the proliferation of T lymphocytes and enhancing the activity of NK cells, two types of immune cells responsible for destroying pathogens. Ashwagandha is also known as an anxiolytic, which can be very helpful in cases of pandemic-induced stress.

Vidya Herbs has developed Viwithan™, clinically studied for its adaptogenic properties and offering a range of extracts standardized to 2.5% to 5% Withanolides.

BIOENHANCERS

A category of plant extracts that could be very interesting is that of bioenhancers.

Ginger and Piper longum are part of many Ayurvedic formulations due to their ability to enhance the absorption of active ingredients. Additionally, Piper longum has virucidal and antidepressant activities against the flu, while ginger can exert antiviral activities.

Vidya Herbs offers Piper longum extract standardized to 95% piperine and Ginger extract standardized to 2% to 5% gingerols, available in powder, granules, or SFT microbeads. The ginger extract is also available in organic quality.

SALACIA RETICULA - 20% Tanins

Salacia reticulata extracts are known for their use in the prevention or treatment of diabetes by inhibiting sugar absorption, but this Ayurvedic plant also exerts more specific immune activities.

In a human trial, Salacia reticulata was shown to modify the gene expression of peripheral blood cells. It also facilitated a shift towards a younger gut microbiota, indicating the strengthening of the intestinal barrier and an enhanced ability to resist and control pathogens.

The antiviral activity of Salacia reticulata has been demonstrated in mice infected with the H1N1 virus.

Vidya Herbs offers a Salacia reticulata extract standardized to 20% tannins.
