Novel Beauty-From-Within Ingredient Lustriva® is Self-Affirmed as GRAS

SADDLE BROOK, N.J., Oct. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nutrition21 LLC's beauty-from-within ingredient, Lustriva®, has obtained self-affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status.

Lustriva was granted self-affirmed GRAS status after submitting a comprehensive dossier of information regarding proposed uses, estimated consumer intakes, chemistry, specifications, and a comprehensive review of its safety information.   

Lustriva is a complex that combines Bonded Arginine Silicate with Magnesium Biotinate. The complex is unique in that it significantly increases biotin solubility 40 times greater than that of D-biotin, which is commonly found in beauty products. Lustriva has been clinically shown to enhance existing hair growth and density, improve skin elasticity1, reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines2, and improve overall appearance. 

"Science has always been the biggest differentiator for Lustriva. The highly bioavailable forms of silicon, biotin, and arginine can only be found in this product. We are excited that Lustriva has achieved self-affirmed GRAS status because it opens up so many new product application possibilities," said Katie Emerson, MS, RD, LDN, Nutrition21's Manager of Scientific Affairs.

Lustriva can be easily incorporated into a variety of products, including dietary supplements, functional foods, and ready-to-drink beverages, in a small clinical dose of 160mg.
