Title:Dietary supplement with protein activator
Abstract: A dietary supplement includes a base mixture of ingredients with at least one plant or animal protein and a plant-based protein activator. The plant-based protein activator includes a first group of plant extracts having a proteolytic activity and possibly a second group of plant extracts with an emollient and peristaltic activity, a third group of plant extracts with a carminative activity and a fourth group of plant extracts with a depurative and liver and kidney protective activity.

Assignee:
Application Number:14/022,700
Patent Claims:1. A method of promoting weight loss, wherein said method comprises administering to a subject in need thereof an effective amount of a dietary supplement comprising a base mixture of ingredients with at least one plant or animal protein and a plant-based protein activator consisting of: proteolytic extracts obtained from the sap or the fruit or stalk of a first group of plants selected from the group consisting of papaya, pineapple and sundew; emollient and peristaltic extracts obtained from the leaves, bark, roots or rhizomes of a second group of plants selected from the group consisting of senna, mallow, cascara, frangula, rhubarb, curly dock and aloe; carminative extracts obtained from the leaves, fruits, roots and rhizomes of a third group of plants selected from the group consisting of star anise, green anise, fennel, ginger, mint and turmeric; depurative and liver and kidney protective extracts obtained from the leaves, fruits, roots and rhizomes of a fourth group of plants selected from the group consisting of artichoke, dandelion, boldo, radish, burdock and milk thistle; wherein: a weight content of each proteolytic extract of said first group of plants is from 0.4% to 2.8%, based on the total weight of the supplement; a weight content of each emollient and peristaltic extract of said second group of plants is from 0.05% to 1.4%, based on a total weight of the supplement; a weight content of each carminative extract of said third group of plants is from 0.2% to 1.4%, based on the total weight of the supplement; a weight content of each depurative and liver and kidney protective extract of said fourth group of plants is from 0.1% to 0.6%, based on the total weight of the supplement.

2. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the weight content of each proteolytic extract of said first group of plants is from 0.4% to 4%, based on the total weight of the proteins of the mixture.

3. The method as claimed in claim 2, wherein the weight content of each proteolytic extract of said first group of plants is about 1.3%, based on the total weight of the proteins of the mixture.

4. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the weight content of each emollient and peristaltic extract of said second group of plants is from 0.10% to 1.95%, based on the total weight of the proteins of the mixture.

5. The method as claimed in claim 4, wherein the weight content of each emollient and peristaltic extract of said second group of plants is from 0.15% to 0.65%, based on the total weight of the proteins of the mixture.

6. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the weight content of each carminative extract of said third group of plants is from 0.3% to 2%, based on the total weight of the proteins of the mixture.

7. The method as claimed in claim 6, wherein the weight content of each carminative extract of said third group of plants is about 0.6%, based on the total weight of the proteins of the mixture.

8. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the weight content of each depurative and liver and kidney protective extract of said fourth group of plants is from 0.15% to 2%, based on the total weight of the proteins of the mixture.

9. The method as claimed in claim 8, wherein the weight content of each depurative and liver and kidney protective extract of said fourth group of plants is about 0.30%, based on the total weight of the proteins of the mixture.

10. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the weight content of each proteolytic extract of said first group of plants is 0.9% based on the total weight of the supplement.

11. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the weight content of each emollient and peristaltic extract of said second group of plants is from 0.1% to 0.45%, based on the total weight of the supplement.

12. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the weight content of each carminative extract of said third group of plants is 0.5% based on the total weight of the supplement.

13. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the weight content of each depurative and liver and kidney protective extract of said fourth group of plants is 0.25% based on the total weight of the supplement.

14. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the extracts of said activator are prepared in a form of dried, micronized or freeze-dried powder, or in a wet state and in the form of infusions, herb teas, suspensions in non-polar solvents, resins and oils.

15. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein said at least one plant or animal protein of said base mixture is selected from the group consisting of proteins from soybean, peas, eggs and milk.

16. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein said base mixture of ingredients comprises additives selected from the group consisting of polydextrose, chlorogenic acid, maltodextrins, silicon dioxide, thickeners, anticaking agents, stabilizers, sweeteners, acidity regulators, phenylalanine and natural flavors for allowing it to be used in the preparation of easily digestible high-protein dietary food.

17. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the proteolytic extracts contain a mixture of proteolytic enzymes, including papain and chymopapain, which specifically hydrolyzes polypeptides containing basal amino acids, leucine and glycine and/or a mixture of proteolytic enzymes, including bromelain which has anti-inflammatory, cicatrizing and fibrinolytic properties, in addition to the ability to hydrolyze proteins to oligopeptides and amino acids.

18. The method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the emollient and peristaltic extracts contain anthraquinone derivatives, including sennosides A and B, which cause contraction of smooth muscles, and a consequent increase of peristaltic activity, and/or mucilages, anthocyanins, caffeic acid and chlorogenic acid which have emollient and sedative properties.

19. The method according to claim 1 for introduction in daily meals.
