ALDIXYL® OILife is a third-generation product containing pure trioleate glycerol (GTO), used to reduce the deposit of very long-chain fatty acid in the circulatory stream in patients with Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) and Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN), the main cause of the neurodegenerative process.
ALDIXYL® OILife, rich in oleic acid (long-chain triglyceride, LCT) can be used as a substitute source for fats in diets with limited lipid intake, it is indicated in the dietary management of patients with ALD and AMN. It has been shown that the daily use of GTO, to replace the lipid component in the diet of ALD and AMN patients, favors the reduction of very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA) in the blood rate. From a nutritional point of view, it is nonetheless necessary that the intake of foods containing very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) be reduced.
Diets low in VLCFA must be developed by a nutritionist.

ALDIXYL® OILife has 0.25% (0.5 mg KOH/gr) acidity, thus falls within the range of an ideal oil which should have lesser than 1% acidity. It should be noted that the environment where the reaction is performed is carefully monitored to ensure that temperature and pressure are maintained at constant values. The resulting mixture is cleared through filtering zinc oxide and any waste products generated during the reaction and then purified at 200 °C temperature. At the end, the mixture is subjected to a lipid profile by gas chromatography.
