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. Easy-to-use Free flowing powder Lower hygroscopicity and better stability to acidic media Suitable for a fiber enrichment*

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.
