"We believe that DSM's water soluble tomato concentrate Fruitflow® has a very

president of marketing for DSM Nutritional Products. "The fact that Fruitflow®
was the first ever ingredient to get an article 13.5 EFSA health claim in
Europe stating, 'helps maintain normal platelet aggregation which contributes
to healthy blood flow,' is evidence of the amount of research that has gone
into developing Fruitflow®."

OptiFlow®'s proprietary technology offers the unique ingredient Fruitflow® to
support healthy platelet function and blood flow. There are several factors
that can seriously affect cardiovascular health, including elevated
cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and impaired blood platelet function.
Blood platelets can become "spiky" and more prone to clotting because of such
factors as stress, smoking, obesity and high cholesterol. A tomato-based
concentrate made from select Mediterranean tomatoes; Fruitflow® is a natural,
healthy and safe ingredient that has been proven through clinical research to
help maintain healthy blood flow by supporting normal blood platelet function.
The benefit of Fruitflow® has been consistently demonstrated in eight clinical
trials. Fruitflow® works to support blood flow by keeping blood platelets in a
smooth form – "sticky" or "spiky" blood platelets can lead to platelet
aggregation. The effect takes place within 1.5 hours and when taken as a
single dose, the effect lasts for 12 hours.  When taken regularly on a once
per day basis, the effect lasts longer.
