Rapten is an oil powder and standardized to contain at least 80% auraptene purified from the oil derived from juiced Hassaku oranges.
Auraptene is expected to increase fat burning, improve lipid metabolism, inhibit platelet aggregation and AChE, and is bacteriostatic against Helicobacter pylori.
Applicability as an ingredient to drinks
Auraptene is lipid-soluble and not water-soluble on their own.
As Rapten is standardized to contain at least 80% auraptene (lipid-soluble), it cannot be mixed into drinks on its own.
As such, we devised a formula for mixing it into drinks. Please contact us for details.
Effects on energy metabolism
Participants with high LDL cholesterol levels took 10 or 20 mg/day of Rapten for 12 consecutive weeks. Their total cholesterol levels decreased significantly.
Based on the above, we can expect Rapten to have beneficial properties that can decrease total cholesterol levels.
