Objectives of NPHYTBIOACT Project

PN-III-P2-2.1-PED-2019-3945, contract no 362PED/2020

The core objective of the project: to settle a complete solution for development and lab-scale validation of new phyto-formulations with enhanced bioactivity.

Achieving the NPHYTBIOACT major goal implies the following technological downstream:

1.Validation of the innovative technologies of extraction existing at the consortium level (TRL 3) for silymarin extraction from milk thistle and polyphenols/flavonoids extraction from rosehip;

2.Development and characterization of phytosomes (phyto-phospholipids complexes) based on complexes “active compound –phospholipids” to be further used in phyto-products formulation. In our case active compound are silymarin, respectively polyphenols/flavonoids while phospholipids are phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylserine;

3. Lab-scale new phyto-formulations based on the developed phytosomes & validation of the new-formulations.
