Ready for our AQUABIOPRP-FIT Clinical Studies for Skin and Hair improvement
Nutritional Supplements from Fish for Skin and Hair improvement
Dietary supplements are concentrated sources of nutrients, usually containing trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, fiber, and various plant extracts. They are used to correct nutritional deficiencies, maintain an adequate intake of certain nutrients, or support specific physiological functions. Food supplements are not medicines, but natural products, therefore, their use is not intended to treat or prevent diseases in humans or to modify physiological functions.
We at the EU-funded project AQUABIOPRO-FIT developed nutritional supplements containing proteins and other bioactive ingredients from aquaculture and fisheries by-products. These «elixirs" are specifically designed to help the body naturally to improve skin appearance and hair health.
Aquaculture and fisheries by-products with high-protein concentration, containing, amino acids, trace elements such as magnesium, zinc, vitamins, 5HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan), and omega-3 fatty acids (EPA, DHA) are good raw materials for producing such a dietary supplement to help the human body to effectively deal skin and hair problems. In the AQUABIOPRO-FIT project, by making use of sustainable processing technologies, nutritional components will be up-concentrated, resulting in more efficient use of biomass resources and the development of products that offer health benefits to consumers – with low environmental impact.
