Looking for a standout grape seed extract?
Ecovitis® Grape Seed Extract by Distillerie Bonollo Umberto SpA sets the standard for traceability, environmentally friendly, sustainable manufacturing, and clinically tested efficacy.
Vertically Integrated Chain of Custody of Raw Materials
It all begins with meticulous control over producing optimal grapes. The grapes are grown and harvested from local Italian vineyards exclusively comprising the Bonollo® grape supply chain, minimizing variability and ensuring only the highest quality grapes are selected. Bonollo® is known throughout the grappa industry for its commitment and focus on quality and sustainability.
State of the Art Green Manufacturing
Ecovitis® is produced in a state-of-the-art, environmentally responsible, food-grade facility within Distillerie Bonollo Umberto SpA. This gentle, patented water extraction/ultrafiltration process uses membrane technology to concentrate levels of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (Morazzoni et al., 2021). Eliminating the use of harsh chemical solvents (which can strip away synergistic compounds) results in a safe and highly efficacious matrix of grape seed bioactive compounds. Our green and sustainable process allows for the utmost respect to the environment – a core value for both Bonollo and Artemis.
Quality Ingredient Parameters
Distillerie Bonollo Umberto SpA applies rigorous quality standards and testing protocol with a focus on safety, purity, potency, transparency, and efficacy. Ecovitis® has a unique bioactive profile–standardized to a high level of oligomeric proanthocyanidins while maintaining a low monomeric content. The guaranteed low level of monomers contributes to the safety of the product, as high levels of epicatechin and catechin monomers have been linked to potential detrimental health effects. In fact, the European Food Safety Authority recommends daily dosage limitations for these monomers (EFSA, 2018). The polyphenolic profile of Ecovitis® is also compliant to the most recent literature data and advanced regulatory issues.
