MALUS PUMILA VAR ANNURCA

MALUS PUMILA VAR ANNURCA

The Annurca apple is a variety of apple from Campania that has traces of it since pre-Roman times. It produces high amounts of polyphenols, especially procyanidins type B, responsible for positive health effects: it is to her that the classic saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” refers to it. A clinical study of the University Federico II of Naples on 250 subjects with moderate hypercholesterolemia showed that the consumption of 2 melannurche per day for 8 weeks contributes to restore a normal lipidic structure and that their effectiveness is superior to that of other apples.

Melannurca extract reduces total cholesterol and LDL and increases HDL cholesterol, without side effects. Procyanidin B2 is also known for its ability to stimulate hair regrowth and trophism in vitro and in vivo: it promotes the anagen phase of the life cycle, increases keratin biosynthesis and stimulates the stem cells of the outer root sheath by promoting the follicle reorganization.
