The colourless, tasteless gel can be added to various foods and consumed.

In fact, it is already being used in one fruit juice product Fruitflow.

EU health officials have also accepted the medicinal value of the gel and permitted the use of such claims on packaged products.

Although, millions of older people presently take small doses of aspirin every day to improve blood flow, the drug can lead to bleeding in the stomach and also trigger off the development of ulcers.

"To date, no side effects have been demonstrated during the development of Fruitflow," the Telegraph quoted Prof Dutta-Roy, as saying.

Studies show Fruitflow consumption can smoothen the flow of blood within three hours and the effect can last up to 18 hours.

A profound discovery by professor Asim Dutta Roy, should be taken by everyone aged 30 upwards. will hopefully negate the need for aggressive treatment such as aspirin. Also considered to be effective against deep vein thrombosis, and possibly type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome + triglyceride lowering. I have being taking it myself for 6 months and have noticed a huge improvement in fitness, in skin health, much smoother. better sleep. The profundity of this discovery will soon be universally recognized.
