Joe Laplaca, vice president of marketing for DSM Nutritional Products, USA, said:
OptiFlow’s proprietary technology offers the unique ingredient Fruitflow to support healthy platelet function and blood flow. There are several factors that can seriously affect cardiovascular health, including elevated cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and impaired blood platelet function. Blood platelets can become “spiky” and more prone to clotting because of such factors as stress, smoking, obesity and high cholesterol. A tomato-based concentrate made from select Mediterranean tomatoes; Fruitflow is a natural, healthy and safe ingredient that has been proven through clinical research to help maintain healthy blood flow by supporting normal blood platelet function. The benefit of Fruitflow has been consistently demonstrated in eight clinical trials. Fruitflow works to support blood flow by keeping blood platelets in a smooth form – “sticky” or “spiky” blood platelets can lead to platelet aggregation. The effect takes place within 1.5 hours and when taken as a single dose, the effect lasts for 12 hours. When taken regularly on a once per day basis, the effect lasts longer.
