cognition cognitive  brain Red Ginseng root (Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer)(Araliaceae family), is sourced from five-year-old plants from Jilin, a northeastern province of China. Ginsenosides, the active molecules from ginseng, are specific types of triterpene saponins. Ginsenosides are distributed in many parts of the ginseng plant, including the root and the leaf. Nexira has a high proficiency regarding the entire chain and guarantees the authenticity of our Red Ginseng root extract, without any adulteration with leaf or other species. Nexira’s Ginseng Extract : Strict raw material selection Gentle process: Water extraction at our facility in France Standardization to 5% total ginsenosides In Asian traditional medicine, dried ginseng is used as a tonic to rejuvenate vital energy. Ginseng contributes to the natural defenses and proper functioning of the immune system. At least 30 ginsenosides have been isolated and characterized in the literature. The physiological actions of individual ginsenosides may work in opposition. For example, the two main ginsenosides, Rb1 and Rg1, respectively, suppress and stimulate the central nervous system. These opposing actions may contribute to the «adaptogenic» description of ginseng and its purported ability to balance bodily functions. 1,2 Ginseng is traditionally used to enhance cognitive and physical abilities, in cases of weakness, tiredness or loss of concentration. Ginseng is also approved for use during convalescence. 1,3 Panax ginseng also benefits from several pending claims. Thanks to its multiple health benefits and its notoriety as an adaptogen and a nootropic, Ginseng is a rising ingredient in Supplements & Beverages

Hepure is an organic and synergistic formulation of Clove and Immortelle extracts for a hepatoprotective and detoxifying action. Immortelle (Helichrysum italicum), which comes from the rocky and sunny lands of the Corsican maquis in France, is also called Everlasting thanks to its exceptional longevity: its flowers never fade. Immortelle has been described in the literature for its antioxidant activity and its inflammatory marker modulation. 1,2,3 Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) has demonstrated its superiority in flavonoids content, antioxidant activity and its hepatoprotective effect. 4,5 Detox is a natural process that enables the neutralization and elimination of toxins. Liver allows the elimination of waste by transforming toxins and by a solubilization process, which require potent enzymatic cascade and can generate free radicals. Supporting antioxidant mechanism of the liver may be beneficial for detoxification process and hepatoprotection. Starting with more than 100 botanical sources, Nexira compared antioxidant potency and nutrigenomic mechanism in liver cells through an extensive and innovative screening. HEPURE has confirmed the best synergy in direct antioxidant activity and its superiority in increasing gene expression coding for antioxidant defenses by the liver cell (nutrigenomic mechanism). Thus, Hepure has proven a synergistic antioxidant activity in liver cells, the liver protection, a boost in antioxidant production, and a support to the detoxifying process. Pending claim on Helichrysum italicum*: «Helps to maintain a healthy liver function, supporting the digestion and the body purification».
