High Standard Health Solutions

PLT Health Solutions is a trusted discoverer, developer, and marketer of high-quality, scientifically-supported ingredients that enhance health and functionality. As a leading ingredients innovator, PLT’s global network of strategic partnerships provides unique access to impactful solutions. By delivering an unsurpassed mix of expertise, resources, and service, PLT Health Solutions is committed to helping both its strategic partners and valued customers grow.

High-quality science, demonstrating safety and efficacy, sets the foundation for building high-quality brands. Providing rigorous scientific data that can support label claims and attract consumers is the standard that PLT Health Solutions sets for itself and is what differentiates its approach to ingredient development. With PLT’s partners, the company helps to develop product substantiation using in vivo and in vitro studies as well as double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical studies, not only to define ingredient safety and efficacy, but to understand how they work in the body and the potential for engaging, consumer-relevant claims. Once an ingredient is launched, PLT continues to develop the science supporting it, creating the right studies to strengthen the claims customers can make with their branded consumer products.

PLT Health Solutions partners with its suppliers and participates in many aspects of product development, including key investments, to ensure alignment with the marketplace. PLT Health Solutions welcomes ideas from companies with ingredients that match its high standards.

Glycemic Index: New Benecarb® Glycemic Balance Complex is a cost-effective, easy to incorporate, patented, natural, GRAS (generally recognized as safe) ingredient that can lower the glycemic index of foods and beverages and support blood sugar management claims. With Benecarb, there is minimal impact on taste or texture and minimal need for formulation changes.

Whole Food Vitamin D: New Earthlight™ Whole Food Vitamin D is a cost-effective, real vegan, whole food source of vitamin D that won’t affect the taste or texture of foods.

Immune: Wellmune WGP® is the proven immune ingredient that’s ideal for foods, beverages or supplements. Nine clinical studies have demonstrated the unique ability of this natural, GRAS (generally recognized as safe) ingredient to enhance key immune responses to promote health, wellness and vitality.

Joint Health: AprèsFLEX® is the next generation boswellia extract for joint health. In a recent clinical study, AprèsFLEX supplementation demonstrated significant improvements in joint comfort, function and mobility.

Cognitive: Zembrin® is a patented botanical ingredient that relieves stress by elevating mood, promoting calm and enhancing cognition. Zembrin has been clinically studied for safety and efficacy. Zembrin is unique–you can actually feel its benefits.

Bone Health: MenaQ7™ Crystals is the purest vitamin K2 for proven bone and heart health. NattoPharma holds U.S. and Canadian patents for the use of menaquinone (vitamin K2) in foods and supplements for cardiovascular health.

Weight Management: PLT Health Solutions targets weight management from three distinct approaches:
1. Satiereal®, clinically studied to support weight management by controlling compulsive behavior toward eating;
2. Xanthigen®, demonstrated to promote weight loss through synergistic effects of its all-natural components, this ingredient holds a recently-issued U.S. patent; and
3. Adipromin™, shown in a double-blind, placebo-controlled human study to promote weight loss, reduce body mass index (BMI) and positively impact cholesterol, triglycerides and serum adiponectin levels.

Skin Health: Lipowheat®, a natural, vegetarian source of ceramides, is a class of lipids which are the skin’s natural sealant. Lipowheat helps hydrate skin, fights signs of aging and leaves skin soft and supple.

Heart Health: Along with MenaQ7 Crystals, PLT Health Solutions has three more naturally derived solutions for heart health. In clinical studies, MegaNatural® BP and MegaNatural® Gold are both grape seed extracts. MegaNatural BP supported blood pressure within the normal range with no adverse side effects. MegaNatural Gold is an antioxidant grape seed extract. Hytolive® is a 100 percent natural solvent-free water extract of olive fruit which contains high purity natural hydroxytyrosol. Ongoing research continues to demonstrate the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, a key component of which is olives and olive oil. A dosage of 100 mg of Hytolive powder contains the hydroxytryrosol equivalent to 10 table olives or one-half liter of extra virgin olive oil.
