Patent Granted to Cognitive Performance Ingredient

Greater Galangal (Alpinia galanga) plant is a pungent rhizome in the ginger family, and a classic ingredient in Thai cooking. It is also a perennial herb with showy flowers and beautiful foliage.

Mumbai, India, and Morristown, NJ—Enovate Biolife and OmniActive Health Technologies have announced that enXtra has been granted a U.S. patent for use of the branded Alpinia galanga extract for improved cognitive performance.

Patent no. US020180221430 A1 covers enXtra for improvement of cognitive performance such as mental alertness and increased attention, a use that has been demonstrated in five clinical studies.

We are thrilled that this patent will allow our customers to promote these cognitive health claims for Alpinia galanga.”
