Benefits of Iridoids
  • Support healthy circulatory function

    This is critical to optimal health because your circulatory system transports essential nutrients and oxygen to and waste away from all your tissues, organs and the trillions of cells inside your body.

  • Enhance cognitive function

    Your brain is the master regulator of all bodily functions; without it you would not be able to think, move, speak or even live.

  • Support a healthy inflammatory response

    Study after study confirms that chronic inflammation is associated with a range of diseases, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer. While inflammation is a normal and necessary function of your body, persistent inflammation is extremely detrimental to your health.

  • Reduce advanced glycation end products (AGEs)

    AGEs are byproducts of normal reactions that occur in your body. AGEs are formed beginning at birth and have been implicated in the aging process. Studies link excess AGEs to a host of diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and kidney disorders.

  • Encourage healthy angiogenesis

    Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels to feed cellular growth. Cancer cells rely on abnormal angiogenesis to feed cancerous cells and tumors. By normalizing angiogenesis, iridoids may help starve potentially cancerous tissues.

  • Help normalize blood sugar levels

    Persistently high levels of blood glucose (sugar) leads to diabetes. Iridoids may have beneficial effects in diabetes by enhancing the action of insulin to transport glucose into cells for energy requirements.

  • Augment immune system function

    Iridoids help resist disease and illness by enhancing the activity of T cells that help protect the body from infection.

    As with most plant compounds, iridoids seem to have an innate intelligence and know just what your body needs. Instead of acting against the body they work in tandem with it to promote optimal health.

    The International Irdioid Research Symposium brings together iridoid researchers form all over the world to continue the discovery process to learn the potential health benefits of these little-known, healthy compounds.
