Health Benefit of Standardized Natural Pandan Extract (NPE)

Alkaline pH Health Balanced Body

Natural Pandan Extract (NPE) is alkaline-forming to the body. Viruses and diseases such as colds, flu, cancer and even heart disease thrive in an acidic body, but cannot survive when your body is alkaline (pH 7.1 – 7.5).

Antioxidant Activity

NPE have been demonstrated to have the following properties.
• Free radical scavenging activity • Nitric oxide scavenging activity • Reduced ferric ion activity • Reduced lipid peroxidation in liver • Increased the reduced glutathione (GSH) in liver

Cooling & Detoxifying

NPE contained Chlorophyll that can help body remove toxins & pollutants.

In vivo study on effect of chlorophyll on aflatoxin detoxification
Subject Healthy adults (n=180) Male F344 rats (n=21)
Duration of the study 4 months 2 days
Dosage 3 times a day 5 daily doses
Groups Control : Placebo
Test group: 100mg chlorophyllin
Control: 250 mg/kg aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) alone
Test group 1: AFB1 dose with 250 mg/kg chlorophyllin (CHL)
Test group 2: AFB1 dose with 300 mg/kg chlorophyll (chl)
Parameters analysed Aflatoxin-N-guanine level in urine samples Aflatoxin—serum albumin
Hepatic aflatoxin—DNA
Urinary AFB–N7 -guanine and fecal AFB equivalents
Function • Chlorophyllin impedes the bioavailability of carcinogens by forming molecular complexes and enhances their elimination in the fecal stream
• Chlorophyll provides potent chemoprotection against early AFB1 carcinogenesis in the rat liver and colon.
Visible Benefits • Decreased Aflatoxin-N-guanine level in liver and serum by 55% and 71% respectively
• Decreased Aflatoxin-N-guanine level in urine by 92%

Quick Recovery Of Energy

Polysaccharides extracted from Pandan are its main bioactive compound & have multiple pharmacological activities. This study is designed to investigate the anti-fatigue effects of Pandan’s polysaccharide (PP) in mice using the forced swimming tests. The results from this study will be extrapolated into human use. Therefore, one product from Pandan using polysaccharide as marker will be developed.

Groups • Positive control : Amitriptilin • Negative control: Water • Test group: 10% pandan extract
Parameters analysed • Forced swimming test • Cortisol level
Function The extract increased mobility and reduced stress level
Visible Benefits • Decreased immobility time by 45.3% • Decreased cortisol level by 33.2%

Sports Nutrition

Natural Presence of amino acid (glutamic acid, proline, ornithine) in NPE
Amino acids can improve body energy and enhance performance in your workout.

  1. Glutamic acid which are due to its ability to convert to Glutamine, one of the most important amino acids. Of particular interest to athletes, it positively impacts energy production, wound healing & emergency energy release.
  2. Proline is an amino acid needed for the production of collagen & cartilage. It keeps muscles & joints flexible.
  3. Ornithine is related to ammonia detoxification in the liver. Hence, ammonia detoxification is important for enhancement of exercise performance. Therefore, ornithine has recently been promoted as one of the commercial sports supplements.
