About Octacosanol


Octacosanol is commonly found in plant wax, an ingredient on the surface of leaves, seeds, fruits, flowers, stems,etc., that protects the body from pests and diseases and maintains moisture in the body. Therefore, the composition of plant secretions is the best formula with natural defense function.

Octacosanol has been described as an important source of endurance in migratory birds. the reason for migratory birds to be able to change their habitats across the ocean by continuing to flap their wings for thousands of kilometers is because they abosorb Octacosanol from plant seeds.



1 - Increases endurance | : Energy is essential for all of our movements, such as breathing, seeing, and walking. Carbohydrates are one of the three main nutrients that produce this energy. When carbohydrates are not used as energy, they are stored in our bodies as glycogen in the liver and muscles and used when energy is insufficient. The alcohol has the function of converting glycogen stored in the liver and muscles into energy. Therefore, the supplement of Octacosanol can effectively produce energy and has the effect of increasing endurance without causing loss of endurance during exercise.

2 - Relief of muscle pain | : Octacosanol has the effect of reducing post-exercise muscle pain especially in leg muscles, and is effect on recovery from fatigue.

3 - Relieve pressure | : Relieve pressure including mental stress caused by tension and anxiety, as well as environmental stress caused by temperature changes such as hot and cold. Constant stress can cause physical and mental distress. Studies have found that Octacosanol are resistant to these stresses and can effectively reduce stress.

4 - Promote metabolism | : Octacosanol increases accumulation of glycogen in muscles, and keep oxygen flowing throughout body to prevent illness during trainning or   exercising. In addition, continuously intake of Octacosanol will improve metabolism.

5 - Preventing lifestyle diseases | : There are two types of cholesterol, bad (LDL) cholesterol and good (HDL) cholesterol. Increased bad (LDL-C) is one cause of some lifeway-related diseases. Octacosanol has the effect of lowering only bad (LDL-C) while maintaining good (HDL-C) . Therefore, Octacosanol can effectively prevent heart disease, hypertension, obesity, arteriosclerosis and other lifestyle diseases.

6 - Prevent Parkinson's disease | : Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disease of unknown cause. It is thought to be caused by a decrease in dopamine, a neurotransmitter. Parkinson's disease generally appears after 40 to 50 years of age and slowly progresses. Symptoms are usually tremors and stiffness in the limbs, inability to move and a tendency to fall. At present, it has been clinically proven that the use of Octacosanol can effectively reduce symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease.

7- Other functions | : Inhibit platelet aggregation and thrombosis, promote arterial endothelial cells, antioxidant, anti-tumor, enhance immunity, anti-dermatitis eczema, nerve protection and nerve repair, reduce isomnia, effective treatment of intermittent claudication, etc.
