Echinacea angustifolia extract rich in Echinacoside.
The polyphenol Echinacoside is obtained from Echinacea angustifolia. Echinacoside is spontaneously produced by Echinacea angustifolia for defence purposes, mainly to protect itself against pathogens and UV radiation.
ABR, through its NATRISE® biotechnology platform, produces purified, standardised and highly concentrated Echinacoside from suspended cell cultures of Echinacea angustifolia.
The production of Echinacoside with NATRISE® safeguards the plant of origin, Echinacea angustifolia, as only a tiny portion of it is needed to start the cell line. Moreover, production is completely independent of seasonality, climatic changes and the plant’s vegetative cycle and takes place in a controlled, sterile environment.
