A tomato-based concentrate made from select Mediterranean tomatoes; Fruitflow® is a natural, healthy and safe ingredient that has been proven through clinical research to help maintain healthy blood flow by supporting normal blood platelet function. The benefit of Fruitflow® has been consistently demonstrated in eight clinical trials. Fruitflow® works to support blood flow by keeping blood platelets in a smooth form – “sticky” or “spiky” blood platelets can lead to platelet aggregation.  The effect takes place within 1.5 hours and when taken as a single dose, the effect lasts for 12 hours. When taken regularly on a once per day basis, the effect lasts longer. Fruitflow® is the first ingredient to earn a European EFSA Article 13.5 health claim stating that the product, “helps maintain normal platelet aggregation, which contributes to healthy blood flow.”
