IFF Health, Shanghai, has announced a strategic partnership for R&D of anti-aging ingredients with By-Health, a Chinese maker of dietary supplements and raw materials. Together, IFF Health and By-Health are researching the production and international development of science-based anti-aging ingredient formulations. The formulations will have special focus on fighting cellular oxidative stress, support of intracellular health such as of the mitochondria, and telomerase research. Telomeres are the repetitive nucleotide sequences that cap chromosomes and protect them from deterioration or from fusing with neighboring chromosomes and preventing healthy cell replication and turnover. They have been identified as being key factors in the process of aging.

“Our purpose at IFF Health demands more than just being a healthy ingredients company,” said Raimund Hoenes, general manager IFF Health. “This requires a committed partner to put uncommon sense to work in order to reinvent and refocus our industry. But more than giving consumers new products to support their healthy lifestyle, it’s also about how we deliver that capacity. By-Health’s focus on innovative research and development matches our commitment to quality, safety, science, and innovation.”

The IFF Health and By-Health teams will investigate ingredient synergies that will not only be marked by high efficacy but superior applicability to better-for-you food and beverage applications.
