An excellent match for metabolism of lipids and sugars
OpunCherry® is a potential metabolic regulator with high diuretic and antioxidant capacity. In OpunCherry®, cherry stems are combined with opuntia, rich in dietary soluble fiber with hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic actions.
OpunCherry® contains Prunus cerasus (Cherry) stems 40-60% and Opuntia ficus indica (Cactus Pear) nopal 20%-40 %. Rich in polyphenols, ascorbic acid, vitamin E, carotenoids, betalains. Opuntia is rich in dietary soluble fiber with hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic actions. It contributes to fat metabolism and helps in weight control programs by reducing appetite and calorie intake.OpunCherry® exhibits antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties thanks to its high content in polyphenols, ascorbic acid, vitamin E and carotenoids. OpunCherry® can reveal beneficial effects on the metabolisms of both lipid and glucose, which bode well for the treatment of human metabolic disorders including diabetes and obesity. In addition to this, both extracts of OpunCherry® showed to be effective in IBD therapy to reduce inflammatory mediators’ secretion, modulate barrier dysfunction and permeability alteration.

Test and scientific evidence
The anti-hyperglycemic properties of OpunCherry® have been investigated in numerous studies: this effect is due to reducing intestinal absorption of glucose, but also to some insulin-like compound leading to this effect.
