Solabia- Algatech Nutrition, is launching 100% natural whole Euglena gracilis algae BioGlena™ for immune support. This unprocessed source of high-in-demand β-glucan is suitable for daily use for the whole family.
BioGlena is produced using proprietary fermentation technology that ensures a high β-glucan content (>55%) in addition to complete protein plus essential vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. This next-generation source of β-glucan is 100% natural and cleanly processed without solvents or additives.
β-glucan polysaccharides are touted as nature’s immune-modulator, helping to prime the immune cells and support natural immunity. E. gracilis’ naturally occurring content of a β-1,3-glucan (called “paramylon”) is specifically recognized by immune-cell receptors. Preclinical and clinical studies support the positive impact of these microalgae
and it’s β-glucan on multiple aspects of immunity.
The β-glucan content of E. gracilis is variable and largely dependent on growth conditions and medium composition. However, Solabia-Algatech Nutrition managed to develop a multi-patented process for growing the E. gracilis that achieves a consistent concentration of over 55% β-glucans in the final product.
According to new data from Innova Market insights, the Covid-19 pandemic spurred increased concern over immune health globally, especially among Millennials and young Generation-X. Supporting immune health is the leading claim in global supplements new product development (NPD), constituting 30% of dietary supplement launches in 2020. It also is the second-most important health claim in food and beverage NPD, after energy/stamina. Within the immune health space, natural botanicals such as elderberry and beta glucan rich mushrooms are currently on-trend choices.
