Melacol is a food supplement containing polyphenolic extract of PGI Annurca campana apples (Annurcomplex®) and dry extract of olive, which promotes lipid metabolism.
A retrospective observational study conducted at the Department of Surgery of the University of Modena on patients with mild and moderate hypercholesterolaemia treated with Melacol showed a reduction in total cholesterol (TC) and LDL and a reduction in cardiovascular risk markers. No adverse effects were reported throughout the duration of treatment. The beneficial effect on lipid metabolism is obtained by combining the two extracts, which regulate cellular oxidative stress and the uptake of cholesterol molecules.
AnnurComplex®, concentrated polyphenolic extract of PGI Annurca campana apples, olive leaves dry extract (tit. at 20% in oleuropein); anti-caking agents: micronised silica, magnesium stearate. Vegetable capsule.
Properties of the ingredients:
AnnurComplex®: nutraceutical product containing concentrated polyphenolic extract of PGI Annurca campana apples useful for maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels.

Recent studies have shown that the polyphenolic fraction (mainly flavonoids) of the apple has beneficial effects on health including:
- regulation of lipid metabolism
- regulation of glucose absorption
- microcirculation benefits
Olive dry extract titrated at 20% in oleuropein: is a compound with marked anti-radical activity against oxidised LDL cholesterol, that is far more potent than other anti-oxidant molecules, including vitamin E. Oleuropein is also a recognised regulator of plasma concentrations of TC, LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol.
Properties of Oleuropein:
- spasmolytic in the intestinal smooth muscle
These actions appear to be due mainly to the flavonoids, phenols and secoiridoids (oleuropeoside with hypotensive activity) the plant contains
The recommended dose is one capsule twice a day preferably with meals
