SternLife expands its nutricosmetics range for improved sleep and wellbeing
SternLife, one of Germany’s leading suppliers of private label solutions for functional foods, is expanding its nutricosmetics portfolio with two concepts for the mental health megatrend: “Mood” and “Sleep” are water-soluble drink powders in Spicy Vanilla Chai and Cherry flavours. Thanks to this dosage form, the active ingredient complexes are better absorbed by the body. The composition of both products can also be customized, giving companies the opportunity to tailor trendy finished products to their chosen target groups. In addition, health claims can be used on-pack.
Unhealthy eating habits, busy lifestyles and excessive workloads are very much part of every-day life for many people. These can result in difficulty sleeping – a significant problem among adults at some point in their lives. Stress affects mood, mental wellbeing and quality of life. So it’s perhaps not surprising that dietary supplement products for improved sleep quality and reduced nervous stress have been the fastest growing category for several years.
“Sleep” supports the natural sleep cycle and comprises calming natural extracts such as lavender, ashwagandha and pumpkin seed. Studies have shown that pumpkin seed extract has a muscle-relaxing effect and leads to less frequent urination. It also contains amino acids, vitamins and magnesium, which has been shown to reduce cortisol and thus improve sleep quality.
“Mood” is based on an anti-stress complex of various nutrients and natural extracts that can help reduce the body’s stress molecules cortisol and homocysteine, thereby easing nervous stress. It also contains calcium, biotin, magnesium, panthothenic acid and riboflavin, which support normal metabolic function. Calcium also aids the normal function of digestive enzymes.
“Mood” and “Sleep” complement Sternlife’s Nutricosmetics line, which so far includes the powder supplements “Detox Booster” for selfcleansing, “Skin-Care” for a fresh complexion and “Hair-Care” for healthy hair. The water-soluble applications are easy to store and prepare, and because the active and vital substances are contained in a beverage, they are more quickly absorbed.
Marc van Essen, sales manager at SternLife, commented: “Our scientifically based nutricosmetics concepts covering all aspects of beauty, lifestyle and health are ideal for companies looking to expand or build their product portfolio. We use state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, which guarantees high and consistent quality, and also provide additional advice on individual customization options and marketing strategies.”
