MOROSIL™ is a standardized solid extract obtained only from the juice of a unique cultivar of Moro red oranges (Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck). “Moro” is the most pigmented blood orange.
Color of the orange flesh is an intense violet-red, at times almost black, due to the high content of anthocyanins.
Overweight is becoming huge public health problems worldwide. Globally, there has been an increased intake of energy-dense foods that are rich in fat and an increase in physical inactivity.
Overweight can increase the risk for a wide range of chronic diseases such as type-2 diabetes, hypertension and coronary heart disease with a reduced quality of life. The risk for these noncommunicable diseases increases with an increase of BMI (Body Mass Index) and unbalanced body composition. Several studies correlated overweight with high levels of lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that pre-adipocyte proliferation and differentiation can be controlled by redox metabolism suggesting that ROS are involved in adipocyte differentiation.
Moro Red Orange is the most colorful of the blood oranges. The flavor is stronger and the aroma is intense. The ‘Moro’ variety is believed to have originated at the beginning of the 19th century in Sicily. The Phytocomplex contained in Moro juice, unlike other orange varieties, have been shown to possess an high content of anthocyanins with an important activity against fat accumulation.
Thanks to the synergistic mechanism related to the pool of biophenols contained in enriched blood orange extract, MOROSIL™may be used for weight control and, acting on fat accumulation, it can indirectly been used to reduce the risk of onset and chronicity of cardiovascular related problems.
MOROSIL™ supplementation showed to induce a significant reduction of body weight, BMI, waist and hip circumference after a period of treatment of 12 weeks.
