Nutrartis is a Chilean company dedicated to the development of functional foods, focused on improving cardiovascular health and reducing cholesterol. It is a company that works to ease the lives of millions of Chileans.
The presentation of Cardiosmile was one of the great novelties of Exponor 2017. It is the only functional food in the world that significantly reduces cholesterol, one of the main risk factors of cardiovascular diseases.
Only one dose of phytosterols per day can help the body. Phytosterols are natural components that truly inhibit the absorption of cholesterol in the body.
Nutrartis was part of the select group of entrepreneurs that participated in the platform “Launch your Innovation”. This is a space that seeks to connect the demands of the industrial mining market with the innovative technological offerings developed in Chile.
Gonzalo Vega, manager of Innovation and Development at Nutrartis, says that Cardiosmile is a worldwide innovation.
“Cardiosmile allows the user to directly add an effective dose of phytosterols (2 grams, as recommended by the FDA) to any food, to achieve a reduction of LDL cholesterol”.
He adds “We proved its effectiveness in a clinical study of the Richardson Center for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals where, in addition, we observed a significant reduction in the level of triglycerides in the blood, which is an even stronger predictor of cardiovascular risk than the LDL cholesterol “.
