POLY-4X ( Oligonol ) Winner of the 2007 Best New Product Award at the 3rd International Conference on Polyphenols and Health (ICPH IFIA/HFE), Nutra Award for Best New Ingredient in 2008 and the Supply Side West Scientific Excellence Award in 2011, Oligonol has been clinically shown to:

Support healthy post-meal blood glucose and lipid levels*[8],[9]

Reduce visceral fat*[10]

Lessen skin wrinkles and brown spots*[11],[12]

Help decrease fatigue and improve endurance*[13],[14]

Because of its effect on circulation, oxidation and inflammation, Oligonol may also support cardiovascular health.*

The polyphenols from lychee fruit and green tea featured in Oligonol:

Increase production of nitric oxide, improving circulation*[15],[16]

Neutralize free radicals*[17]

Reduce UVB-induced COX-2, to protect cell health*[18]

Support healthy levels of inflammatory cytokines*[19]

Inhibit the enzyme collagenase, promoting skin health*[20]

POLY-4X's Oligonol is made from lychee fruit and green tea, both of which have a long history of human consumption. Oligonol has been accepted by the FDA as GRAS and it is Kosher and Halal-certified. Multiple studies on humans and animals have confirmed its safety.*[21],[22],[23],[24],[25]

Fatigue prevention — When more blood is flowing to the muscle, more oxygen is delivered. In the meantime, more waste is being removed from the muscle. This combination prevents fatigue. In one clinical study conducted in a total of 47 young athletes, half the participants took Oligonol, and the other half took regular lychee extract. At the end of the trial, not only did the Oligonol group report feeling improvements in recovery from fatigue, mental clarity, quality of sleep, eye fatigue, and stiff shoulder compared with the regular lychee group, but they also had lower urine levels of 8-OHdG, which is a marker for physical and mental fatigue (Ohno H., et al., 2008).

Heat Stress is experienced by everyone, especially professional athletes, when performing strenuous physical exertion. Heat stress results in increased circulation of excitatory compounds in the blood, contributing to fatigue and muscle soreness, and also wreaks havoc with DNA (Kantidze OL, et al., 2016). In addition, heat stress induces the body’s sweat response, which results in loss of bodily fluids and in turn reduces exercise performance.

Previous studies showed Oligonol could reduce serum concentration of excitatory biomarkers including cortisol, IL-1β, and IL-6 after heat stress (Li S., et al., 1999) and improved exercise performance. One double-blind, crossover clinical study using oral supplementation of 100 mg of Oligonol showed that Oligonol intake before submerging half the body into hot water significantly prevented elevation of tympanic temperature and mean body temperature, when compared with the placebo group. In addition, Oligonol ingestion lowered serum levels of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) significantly when compared with the placebo group (Shin YO, et al., 2013).

Another placebo-controlled, crossover clinical trial using 200 mg of Oligonol for one week showed a smaller increase in body temperature during heat stress and reduced the amount of whole-body sweat loss. The subjects in the Oligonol group maintained serum aldosterone at a relatively low level and serum sodium at a relatively higher level than the placebo group did (Jeong BL, et al., 2015). These results indicated the important role Oligonol plays in sweating, plasma volume, and osmolality in response to heat stress, suggesting its potential use in attenuating body temperature and excessive sweating under heat load in healthy humans, especially in professional athletes, who are under tremendous heat stress caused by intense training every day.

WHAT'S IN YOUR PRODUCT

poly-4x

AlchePharma Poly-4X Utilizes Oligonol


Supported by 30 Human Clinical Trials, Oligonol is a low-molecular-weight polyphenol derived from lychee fruit (85%) and green tea (15%).


It has several anti-aging effects, including: reducing wrinkles and brown spots, lessening fatigue and increasing endurance, reducing visceral (belly) fat, and supporting cardiovascular health.*


Oligonol has several mechanisms of action: promoting healthy blood circulation, protecting against free radical damage, and helping the body mount a healthy response to inflammation.*


Poly-4X & Anti-Aging Properties

Poly-4X contains an abundant amount of polyphenols, a beneficial plant compound that is known for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties.Through studies by pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers, we have begun to discover even more health and beauty benefits from the lychee fruit in Poly-4X. 

Because Poly-4X's Oligonol stimulates blood flow, it is believed to increase anti-aging properties and improve skin conditions. After several tests, the supplement is said to have decreased facial breakouts, acne and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles and freckles on female test subjects. Over a period of time, women who consumed Poly-4X's Oligonol claimed that they noticed better elasticity in their skin, making their appearance more vibrant, healthy and youthful

Poly-4X & Sports Recovery

Poly-4X's Oligonol also has potential in sports recovery as it has been shown to reduce fatigue after exercise, increase endurance and reduce levels of pro-inflammatory markers. The reason why trained athletes dont get tired when they exercise is, again, due to improved blood flow. When more blood is flowing to the muscles, two things happen. First, more oxygen is being delivered to them. Second, more waste is being removed from them. This combination prevents fatigue.

For Colds Hands and Feet

Cold Hands and Feet a Possible Remedy - Polyphenol Oligonol a pilot study


* Effect of Lychee Fruit Extract (Oligonol) on Peripheral Circulation, a Pilot July 2014


-All 6 subjects completed the study. After 30 minutes following Oligonol ingestion, thermographic measurements showed a significant temperature increase in the right palm in the Oligonol group compared to the placebo group. Temperature changes between groups were significantly different at 30 minutes and 60 minutes. The temperature remained significantly above baseline levels for up to 120 minutes in the Oligonol group
