Orissa Vredevoort & Dochters would like to inform you about two new TRENDY ingredients in our product portfolio from our supplier LIPOID KOSMETIK. These ingredients have wide-ranging benefits with various marketing stories.
Please read more about our extracts SASKATOON BERRY & CHIA SEED. 
SASKATOON BERRY, the Canadian Power-Berry

Found in the western prairies of Canada, Saskatoon Berries

are a perfect example of a trending superfood. The purple

blue berries are rich in vitamins, minerals and flavonoids.

Their anti-oxidant properties have been proven in various

studies and are superior to plenty of other fruits

The multitude of compounds and activities of Saskatoon Berries have extensively been described in scientific literature.

  • Saskatoon Berries contain phenolic acids including 3-feruloylquinic, chlorogenic, and 5-feruloylquinic acids [1]. They are especially rich in anthocyanins and flavonoid compounds, including rutin, hyperoside, avicularin and quercetin [1]. Anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins have been associated with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-adhesion and anti-cancer properties.

  • Antioxidant Activity; Saskatoon Berries have higher levels of antioxidants compared to the more common berries such as wild blueberries, strawberries and raspberries [1,3]. Saskatoon Berry extracts suppressed peroxyl-radical intracellular oxidation [1]. The high radical scavenging activity was significantly linked to the presence of anthocyanins.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Activities; Saskatoon Berry anthocyanins caused significant counter-activity in inflammatory processes due to COX-2 and COX-1 inhibition [1]. Extracts of Saskatoon Berries inhibited nitric oxide production in activated macrophages, indicating a potential protective role against cardiovascular and chronic inflammation [1].

CHIA SEED, Nutritious power seed of the Aztecs

The wide-ranging benefits of the seeds with its outstanding nutrients is being relaunched. Already in the 16th-century the power of Chia had been used by the Aztecs not only for food source but also for medicinal uses. Serving as a high energy food it is said the Aztec warriors were chewing on Chia Seeds during forced marches.

  • Chia Seed
    Known as one of the currently most popular superfoods, Chia Seeds are rich in protein, fiber, amino acids, calcium, potassium, iron, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and anti-oxidants.
    Already known to the ancient Maya culture where it was a dish for strength and health, Chia Seeds gain more and more popularity all around the world [1,2].

  • Chia Seed Oil
    The cold pressed oil of the Chia Seeds is an extraordinary source for omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids which are present in the perfect balance of 3 to 1. The oil contains high levels of phyto-nutrients and anti-oxidants such as alpha lipoic acid, quercitin and myricetin [1,3,4].
