Londerzeel, Belgium—IFF Health has received Non-GMO Project Verification for its Go-Less Men health ingredient. Sourced from 100% European-grown pumpkins, this plant-based pumpkin-seed ingredient has been supported by clinical trials and supports healthy bladder function in men, the company reports.
“This certification reflects IFF’s commitment to develop the highest quality ingredients with full transparency and add value to our customer’s products,” said Moran Werner Saido, Product Manager for IFF Health, in a press release. “Go-Less Men is supported by science, non-allergenic and has been shown to support the maintenance of a healthy bladder and prostate. It also is available in pharmaceutical grade.”
In a recent study, Go-Less Men demonstrated a capacity to lower urinary symptom frequency and severity in men with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). According to the company, results showed that 500 mg taken daily for 12 weeks provided statistically significant reductions in symptoms based on the total International Prostate Symptom Score, and of all BPH related symptoms, with 30% of men reporting improvement of symptoms from “moderate/severe” to “mild.”
Go-Less Men is vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, and complies with the European herbal medicine monograph, IFF says, adding that it is manufactured using a proprietary decontamination procedure that eliminates susceptibility to rancidity for an oil-free pumpkin seed extract with increased stability, purity and solubility.
