The latest on healthy aging ingredients and events - September 2022
The Future is Bright
45 years ago, in September 1977, Maypro was founded by Japanese entrepreneur Steve Yamada. As as a pioneer in functional ingredients, Maypro is best known for introducing blockbuster products to the U.S. and Asian markets.
Since then, Maypro has only improved with age. It became a global leader in proprietary and branded ingredients (PBIs) with a PBI portfolio featuring approximately 40 research-backed ingredients designed to improve human health. With three offices in key markets and an experienced multi-lingual team servicing countries worldwide, Maypro continues to grow.

Can Anti-Aging Formulas Be Powerful Pro-Health Solutions?
Forget “anti-aging.” Let’s focus on developing pro-health, pro-living nutritional formulas geared to improving health areas of strong interest to consumers over age 40.
By the numbers, we know that 36.8% of the world’s population is over age 40, with the 40–59 age group by far the largest demographic among them, making up 23% of the population (or 1.8 billion people); those 60–79 account for 918 million, or 11.9% of the global numbers.
Given declining global birth rates and increasing life expectancies, the world is getting increasingly older and interestingly, in the U.S. at least, people over age 35 are big supplement users.
In fact, according to a Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) survey, 81 percent of adults aged 35–54 take dietary supplements and 79% of 55+ adults take them.
Some of the most common health goals among age 40+ Americans include: improving cognitive health; aiding cardiovascular or circulatory health; boosting energy levels; supporting healthy blood sugar levels; reducing the appearance of wrinkles; reducing stress; and enhancing weight-loss.
Fortunately, Maypro offers a number of powerful, science-backed proprietary branded ingredients (PBIs) that support these health goals.
Sirtmax® is an Anti-Aging Powerhouse
Anti-aging scientists know how important genes, called sirtuins, are, especially SIRT1, known as the “longevity gene.” SIRT1 recharges mitochondria, the energy factories of cells, which can slow down as we get older. Any natural ingredient that boosts the SIRT1 pathway is anti-aging gold.
While resveratrol is known for boosting SIRT1, now there’s another natural ingredient that works like resveratrol — but is five times more powerful!
What is it? Sirtmax®.
Derived from the rhizome of black turmeric (Kaempferia parviflora) and rich in polymethoxyflavonoids, the patented ingredient Sirtmax could well be the anti-aging ingredient you’ve been searching for.
In fact, research shows that black turmeric supports healthy levels of the protein hormone, adiponectin.
Why is this important? The body uses adiponectin to regulate the metabolism of sugar and fat, for both energy and weight loss — and so naturally boosting adiponectin supports healthy blood sugar levels, too.
In addition, a double-blind, placebo-controlled human study found that Sirtmax:
- Caused a reduction in body weight*
- Helped maintain blood sugar levels already within a normal range*
- Decreased the production of advanced glycation end products* (AGEs)
- Showed a trend toward improvement in arterial flexibility*
Sirtmax is dairy-free, gluten-free, Kosher, Halal, non-GMO and self-affirmed GRAS and is suitable for anti-aging, circulatory health, heart health, energy support, glucose health support and weight-loss formulations.

Keep Going Strong with Oligonol®
Supported by 30 human clinical trials, Oligonol® is a patented, low-molecular-weight polyphenolic extract derived from lychee fruit (85%) and green tea (15%) with excellent absorption and multiple anti-aging benefits. It addresses the three major causes of aging: poor blood circulation, oxidative stress and inflammation.*
Winner of the 2007 Best New Product Award at the 3rd International Conference on Polyphenols and Health (ICPH IFIA/HFE), NutrAward for Best New Ingredient in 2008 and the SupplySide West Scientific Excellence Award in 2011, Oligonol has been clinically shown to:
- Support healthy post-meal blood glucose and lipid levels*
- Reduce visceral fat*
- Lessen skin wrinkles and brown spots*
- Help decrease fatigue and improve endurance*
Because of its effect on circulation, oxidation and inflammation, Oligonol may also support cardiovascular health.* As if that weren’t enough, manufacturers have the alternative option of formulating with MicroActive® Oligonol, a new, micronized form of Oligonol that has demonstrated significant sustained release activity in dissolution studies and increased residence time and absorption in a human study. The results of this research indicate that MicroActive Oligonol:
- Has 2.39 times greater bioavailability than regular Oligonol
- Enables reduction of cost due to lower dosing requirement
- Has a 12-hour sustained release

BioPQQ® Delivers Energy, Better Cognitive Health and More
PQQ — the first new vitamin discovered since 1948 — supports the health and proliferation of mitochondria.
Because the break-down of mitochondria is a key contributing factor to physiological aging in humans, clinical studies suggest that anti-aging PQQ can:
- Improve cognitive function*
- Protect nerve cells*
- Increase energy levels*
- Alleviate occasional stress and sleeplessness*
Double-blind, placebo-controlled human studies have found that PQQ improves spatial awareness, short-term memory and concentration.*
BioPQQ® has been used in all of the human clinical studies on PQQ published to date and is the only natural NDI-accepted PQQ on the market.
MicroPQQ® delivers the power of PQQ in a special micronized, sustained-release matrix. Because the PQQ is released over time, it stays active in the blood longer than regular PQQ. In fact, a comparative human case study showed that MicroPQQ is 2.2x more bioavailable than regular PQQ and delivers a 9+ hour sustained release.
BioPQQ is dairy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO and NDI notification exempt.
