Sibelius Natural Products is a nutraceutical company dedicated to using scientifically proven methods for researching and developing natural products that support health and longevity.
The company strives to discover natural ingredients that can contribute to healthy aging. The whole process starts from using their patented Chronoscreen™ platform to identify active ingredients, which leads to developing, testing, and commercializing health-boosting products.
What is the Chronoscreen™ Platform?
Chronoscreen™ is the heart of Sibelius’ new product development process. This screening platform allows the identification of high-quality botanical sources, exclusive ingredients, and synergistic formulations. Chronoscreen™ drives the exploration of the biological activity of natural ingredients and enables faster NPD, leading to greater value clinical trials.
The platform uses Caenorhabditis elegans, a common model organism suitable for studying physiological processes. By testing how different nutraceuticals affect aging in C. elegans populations, researchers get a general idea of how those ingredients affect cellular aging.
So far, researchers from Sibelius have used Chronoscreen™ platform to test more than 750 natural ingredients and products.
Sibelius Offers 3 Lines of Natural Ingredients
Healthy ageing is more than physical wellbeing alone. For customers, health and wellbeing encompasses also mental wellness. Their three lines of ingredients include Sibelius™: Sage, Sibelius™:Chamomile, and Sibelius™:LactoMato.
The use of Sage (Salvia officinalis) for cognition and memory dates back to the ancient times when it was widely used as a natural remedy for its multiple beneficial effects, as well as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Sibelius™:Sage offers a natural boost to cognitive performance, and it supports mental wellness.
Previous studies investigating the sage’s potential mechanism of action showed a connection with acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter in the creation of memories.
Sibelius™:Sage efficacy relies on a specific cultivar, growing conditions, harvesting times, and extraction processes.
Sibelius™:Sage is available as a dried extract or milled powder, suitable for a variety of formulations, including pills, beverages, jellies and even dairy products.
Sibelius™:Chamomile uses a Roman chamomile extract, with potent relaxing effects for an improved sleep quality. This herb has been traditionally also for antioxidative and immune-boosting properties.
In today’s fast-paced world, many people forget the importance of sleep. You can hear experts talking about the importance of a healthy diet and exercise on every step, but the truth is that proper rest plays an equally important role in health and longevity.
Sibelius™:Chamomile is a high-quality Roman chamomile extract (Chamaemelum nobile L. All.), which derives from a proprietary, non-GMO cultivar of Roman chamomile grown in the UK. As well as being a strong antioxidant, Roman chamomile has a potent calming effect.
We have recently developed a consumer-focused product in the form of a mouth-spray for relaxation and stress-relief containing Sibelius™:Chamomile, Lavender and Peppermint oils.
Men’s health has been another focus area for Sibelius Natural Products. Male health is often neglected, and the lack of nutraceuticals on the market reflects that.
Sibelius™:LactoMato is a tomato-based extract, standardised to lycopene encapsulated in whey to increase its bioavailability and efficacy.
This patented formulation supports cardiovascular and prostate health and improves healthy sperm function.
Lycopene is a carotenoid with potent antioxidant activity that prevents oxidative stress. It can be commonly found in tomato-based food, but as many other antioxidants, it is poorly absorbed by the human body. In order to overcome the bioavailability hurdle, this tomato-based extract has been incorporated in a whey protein matrix, which significantly increases its bioavailability and efficacy.
The Future Steps
Sibelius is receiving exceptional feedback regarding their products. This stimulates them to continue researching and developing natural ingredients in an extremely competitive nutraceutical market.
Sibelius has recently partnered with Essential Nutrition to introduce multiple white label formulations, thus offering smaller brands a cost-effective and customizable solution for quicker product launches.
