Vitafoods preview: Nexira presents Exocyan cranberry extract range


Nexira will present Exocyan, a unique range of proanthocyanidin-standardized cranberry extracts (1–50%) with antioxidant properties

Nexira, a global leader in natural ingredients and botanical extracts for food, nutrition and dietary supplements, built its reputation as a world leader in acacia gum and now manufactures a wide range of functional and nutritional ingredients, antioxidants and active botanicals for weight management, sports nutrition, digestive and cardiovascular health. With the new state-of-the-art botanical extraction facility in Europe, Nexira has expanded its production capacities and enriched its portfolio with high quality botanical extracts, including green coffee, green tea extracts and others.

On Stand 17029, Nexira will present Exocyan, a unique range of proanthocyanidin-standardized cranberry extracts (1–50%) with antioxidant properties, and the results of preliminary studies that demonstrate the ability of Exocyan to decrease dental plaque by preventing bacteria adhesion and growth, thus decreasing the main risk factor of gingivitis and periodontitis. Exocyan is also already recognized for its use in the treatment of urinary tract infections.

Nexira will also show Simag, a natural marine magnesium extract derived from purified seawater, and ViNitrox, a unique and proprietary synergistic combination of fruit polyphenols that has been specifically developed to answer the demands of athletes in search of natural solutions for sports nutrition. Nexira’s latest clinical study (double-blind, crossover, placebo-controlled) on 50 athletes, 25–45 years old, demonstrated that 500mg/day of ViNitrox improves physical capabilities by increasing physical training time by 10% and delaying the fatigue barrier by 13% without generating oxidative stress. ViNitrox is the perfect ingredient for both athletes and casual sportsmen/women looking for natural energetic ingredients.

Nexira recently launched Prothy, a hypoallergenic hydrolysed rice protein sourced from GMO-free raw material. It offers a high protein content (80%) and is rich in all essential and semi-essential amino acids, including Branched Chain Amino Acids (15%), with a ratio 2/1/1 in leucine, isoleucine and valine. Prothy offers an ideal solution to promote muscle mass (anabolic properties) and reduce muscle damage (anti-catabolic properties).
