"We are very excited to have Ecotrend launching Oligonol in the Canadian market. We are confident that this ground-breaking polyphenol can make a big impact on the health of our consumers in Canada.
VANCOUVER, BC, September 02, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Oligonol, from Quality of Life Labs (QOL), is the first commercially produced low-molecular-weight polyphenol, with documented anti-aging effects (2007). Oligonol is a flavanol-rich lychee fruit extract containing flavanol mono-, di-, and trimers.
Studies for Quality of Life products have been conducted in prestigious research centers such as: the Yale School of Medicine, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Columbia Presbyterian, UC Davis Cancer Center, USC Department of Medicine, Drexel University Department of Biosciences, and UT Houston Medical.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, participants took either Oligonol or placebo twice daily for ten weeks. At the conclusion of the study, a decrease in body weight, abdominal circumference and visceral fat was discovered in the participants who had taken Oligonol. The results suggested that Oligonol ameliorates metabolic syndrome by reducing visceral fat obesity.
Quality of Life takes pride in the fact that every single ingredient in every single one of its formulas is backed by human clinical studies and delivered in dosages consistent with the research.
"We are very excited to have Ecotrend launching Oligonol in the Canadian market," said Dan Lifton, CEO of Quality of Life Labs. "We are confident that this ground-breaking polyphenol can make a big impact on the health of our consumers in Canada."
In a study examining the efficacy of Oligonol addition to an integrative weight loss program in contributing to improved reductions in overall adiposity, development of lean muscle mass and decrease in inflammatory markers, a Hispanic population who identified their major deficiencies as nutritional rather than hormonal was examined in a clinical setting. The study concluded that an integrative weight loss program including Oligonol resulted in significant reduction of metrics used to evaluate risk from overweight/obesity.
Launching at the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA East) tradeshow in Toronto September 18-20 2015, Quality of Life will be distributing their extensive line of clinically backed supplements through Ecotrend Ecologics Ltd., across Canada.

Representatives from Quality of Life Labs, Maypro Industries, as well as representatives from major universities, were all present at the 23rd annual congress.
Darlene Marno, General Manager of Ecotrend, said, "The caliber and volume of the in vivo, in vitro, and clinical studies presented at the ICNIM 2015 was very impressive. Oligonol research was presented by world class universities, researchers, and clinicians. I have no doubt about the quality and efficacy of this product.
