NATURAL SOLUTION FOR HEALTHY BLOOD SUGAR

Cinnamon

Natural solution for healthy blood sugar levels 

  • Contributes to normal glucose and insulin metabolism
  • Contributes to the digestive comfort
  • Ceylon Cinnamon with low coumarin content

cinnamon blood sugar Cinnamon is well-known since Antiquity. It is the inner bark of a tropical evergreen tree which is native to Sri Lanka. Shoots are stripped of their bark. Dried bark curls and rolls into quills. Its fragrant flavor is very appreciated. Valued as gold in ancient times, cinnamon is today a well-loved spice that adds a special aromatic flavor in cooking and offers recognized health-giving benefits. Gently extracted with water, Nexira Cinnamon extract guarantees a standardized content in PACs and Polyphenols. Traditionally used for digestive disorders, this super spice is also appreciated for the specific use of glucose and insulin metabolism regulation. Effects on blood glucose have been demonstrated in animal models : reduction of Fasting Blood Glucose and glycated hemoglobin index HbA1c, and increase of insulin levels. The mechanism of action by which it regulates blood glucose has been well studied; it seems that Cinnamon contains biologically active substances that act by insulin-mimetic properties, which enhances glucose uptake. Nexira’s Cinnamon extract is ideal for glycaemia regulation and digestive health applications, in capsules, stick packs or shot formats.

NOOTROPIC & ADAPTOGEN

Ginseng

Nootropic & Adaptogen

  • Replenishes & balances vital energy
  • Boosts cognitive & physical abilities
  • Contributes to the body’s natural defenses
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

THE SYNERGISTIC FIBER
Premium

Floracia

The synergistic fiber

  • Beneficial effects on intestinal microflora
  • High digestive tolerance
  • Lower hygrosopicity than oligosaccharides
arabique arabic Floracia TM is a synergy of from acacia and fructo-oligosaccharide. Floracia TM is a result of a synergistic combination of two dietary fibers: long-chain acacia polysaccharides and short-chain fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS). The FOS are soluble fibers used in the ascending colon by bifidobacteria, compared to acacia which is fermented in the transverse and descending colon. This specific combination delivers a higher prebiotic effect compared to FOS or acacia gum taken separately. Indeed, this improves intestinal transit, stimulates the immune system. Obtained through an innovative co-drying process, Floracia TM is slightly sweet, non-viscous and highly soluble perfectly suitable for many applications.
