PISA, Italy,Dec. 23, 2020/CNW/ —PharmaNutra S.p.A.(the “Company“), specialised in iron-based nutritional supplements and in medical devices for muscles and joints, communicates that its patented Cetylated Esters (CFA) has been recognized as GRAS (acronym for Generally Recognized As Safe)for the U.S. market.
Germano Tarantino, Scientific Director of PharmaNutra S.p.A.comments:
“At the request of Pharmanutra, a panel of independent scientists (“the GRAS Panel”), qualified by their relevant national and international experience and scientific training to evaluate the safety of food-ingredients, conducted a critical and comprehensive evaluation of the available pertinent data and information concerning the use of Pharmanutra’s CFA as a food ingredient. The GRAS Panel concluded that CFA is to be considered Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) based on scientific procedures. Cetylated fatty acids, which are fatty acids esterified with cetyl alcohol have shown to have a role in protecting synovial membranes and stabilizing cell membranes, allowing for normal joints lubrication, flexibility and mobility. In people who practice sport regularly, the use of cetylated fatty acids might be beneficial in improving the elasticity and resistance of the synovial membranes through a lubrication effect and in contributing to relieve pain due to high physical activity or following an injury.”
