Dihydroquercetin (Taxifolin) is a powerful antioxidant of plant origin that can protect cells from the harmful effects of free radicals and protect cell membranes against damage.
Lavitol is the patented bioflavonoid extract Dihydroquercetin (DHQ) also known as taxifolin. It is derived from Dahurian Larch (Larix gmelinii). Although this novel ingredient originates from the larch tree, it differs greatly from other larch-derived ingredients such as arabinogalactan. While larch arabinogalactan is commonly used for immune support and as a soluble fiber, Lavitol DHQ is considered one of nature's more powerful antioxidants and scientifically shown to provide health benefits in numerous areas.

Applications of Larch arabinogalactan:
Larch arabinogalactan is widely used in pharmaceutical and food industries. If primary Larch arabinogalactan was used only as the adjuvant in production of various medicinal agents, owing to a detailed study of its properties, larch arabinogalactan is considered to use as an independent component in production of dietary food supplements.
Arabinogalactan is an all natural soluble prebiotic dietary fiber that has a beneficial impact on the gastrointestinal system. Arabinogalactan promotes better disintegration, nutritive absorption and digestion in the gastrointestinal tract and could be recommended as a functional dietary supplement in the daily diet. Arabinogalactan promotes to increase the production of short-chain fatty acids, which are extremely important for normal functioning of the organism.
Larch arabinogalactan could be used as an adjuvant in the production of cosmetic products. Since arabinogalactan is good stabilizer, it could be used to increase the stability of emulsions in cosmetic products. Having water-holding properties, arabinogalactan decreases the loss of transepidermal water, keeping the moisture and improving the skin nutrition.
