Anxiofit Ltd. is a developer of scientific evidence-based, anti-anxiety dietary supplements.
All developments are built on deep scientific knowledge, research and numerous animal and human trials to be able to provide with modern, proven help for the growing number of people occasionally experiencing anxiety, stress, nervous inner tension and restless sleep.
The company’s first preparation, EP107™ is successfully marketed for more, than 5 years under AnxioCalm
brand in the US.
The main component of EP107™ is an ancient herb Echinacea. Echinacea is traditionally used for immune support for the respiratory track, but a group of Hungarian scientists found that a unique type of Echinacea Angustifolia from selected growing areas, in a well measured dose, has proven anxiolytic effects. A proper standardization ensures a characteristic alkamide profile, making such an effect clinically measurable. Beside its effective anxiolytic effect EP107™ does not have sedative side effects as most of the existing preparations.
The company started the commercialization of its products globally and is searching for reliable business partners for distribution.
The company was founded in 2007 by well-known Hungarian scientists, Prof. Tamas Freund, Prof. Jozsef Haller and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. They started a research by utilizing governmental and EU grant to gain better understanding of the anxiolytic effects of certain herbs and compounds. In the research process special emphasis were given to the endocannabinoid system, CB1 and CB2 receptors. They found that ingredients of a certain kind of Echinacea has anxiolytic effects. The effect highly depends on the type of plant, where it is grown, which part of the plant is used and how it is processed.
Professional scientific articles have been published about the anxiolytic effects of Echinacea and international patents have been filed by the founding scientists of the company. The company has screened lots of suppliers and only few were safely able to supply raw materials for the production. Scientific methods have been developed to ensure that the final products always have the right quantity of active ingredients responsible for the anxiolytic effect, as some ingredients in Echinacea might even increase anxiety.
In 2009 together with a reputable GMP certified pharma manufacturer (ExtractumPharma) the company developed EP107™ dietary supplement and started production of the 20mg EP107™ minipills in pharma quality.
Numerous animal and human clinical trials have been completed to prove that EP107™ - without side effects-, is ameliorating sub-threshold and mild anxiety, which are clear risk factors in development of anxiety disorders and depression.
In 2010 the first products were sold in the US market under Anxiofit brand, which was later rebranded to AnxioCalm and is exclusively distributed by Europharma Inc.
In 2016 the AnxioCalm product received licenses for distribution also in Canada.
Anxiofit is currently working on receiving an EFSA approval to be able to use its anti-anxiety health claim on the labels also in the European countries. Final approval is expected to be received in 2021.
The company is aiming to further increase the anxiolytic effect of the product by combining extracted active ingredients of other traditional herbs and dietary supplement with its special Echinacea extract without appearance of any side effects.
The products are distributed globally either as bulk product or branded product through reliable distribution partners. If you want to do business with us feel free to contact:
