High performance kiwi extract*

Suitable for multiple target populations*

Protein digestion booster*

Modern lifestyle along with diet disorders and stress can affect the microbiome and cause digestion problems that may interfere with a comfortable every-day life*

What is KWD+®?

KWD+® is a kiwi extract standardized to ≥ 0.15% actinidin by SDS-Page and to ≥ 0.1% Aktinnamics® by HPLC.

Actinidin is a cysteine protease found in the kiwi fruit which breaks down proteins and facilitates the digestive process.

Aktinnamics® are a set of characteristic kiwi antioxidants, chiefly phenolic compounds that have shown anti-inflammatory properties in vitro and in vivo*.

How does it work?

There has been identified the following main KWD+® mechanisms of action:

  • Actinidin gently stimulates gut motility and promotes protein break down in the gastrointestinal tract*.
  • Aktinnamics® helps to hydrolyze gluten peptide bonds, making it easier to digest and preventing the inflammatory response it may cause within the intestinal walls*.
  • Aktinnamics® may inhibit pro-inflammatory mediators (such as TNF-α), preventing discomfort and pain during digestion*.
  • Actinidin proteolytic activity provides with a better protein absorption*.

 Why KWD+®?

  • Suitable for multitarget populations.
    • Sport enthusiast
    • Elderdies
    • Vegetarians
  • Triple benefit:
    1. Protein digestion and absorption enhancement.
    2. Gentle gastrointestinal motility.
    3. Prevention of discomfort during digestion.
  • 100% traceable: Raw material imported from New Zealand and manufactured in Spain.
  • Halal and Kosher certified.

KWD+® extraction technology allows us to increase the concentration of actinidin up to 5 times (compared to fresh kiwi)*

Highest activity – Lowest dosage

Consumption of kiwi fruit species has shown to provide several benefits for the organism. One of the main ones remains on its capacity to improve protein digestion, due to the presence of actinidin.

KWD+® extraction technology allows us to increase actinidin concentration up to 5 times, providing KWD+® with the highest activity at the lowest doses*.

  • Non-GMO.

  • Non-irradiated.
