Developed with a vision for your future
- Derived from Marigolds
- Oil/Powder forms
- Esters and Free
- DMF documented
- Seed to Drum transparency
Lute-gen® (Lutein Free & Lutein Ester) & Zea-gen® (Zeaxanthin) are both derived from the Tagetes erecta species of Marigold flowers under a unique seed-to-drum program in which the supply chain is vertically integrated, thereby offering complete traceability and transparency of the entire process.
Lutein & Zeaxanthin are well-known carotenoids that support the eye against age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Bio-gen Extracts has developed Lute-gen® with a Vision for your Future, thereby pushing the boundaries of Lutein beyond eye health.
An in-vitro study was performed in Spain to determine the protective effect of Lute-gen® on human-adult primary fibroblast cells under oxidative stress conditions, where Lute-gen® demonstrated more than 30% protection when compared to untreated cells, thereby establishing the potential of Lute-gen® in the area of healthy-ageing.
A randomized, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled study was conducted to assess the impact of supplementation of Lute-gen® on Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD) over 180 days on 93 healthy adult subjects. The study demonstrated significantly higher MPOD values in subjects consuming Lute-gen® (10 mg Lutein + 2 mg Zeaxanthin isomers) compared to the baseline, while the placebo did not show any difference. Higher MPOD values may reduce the risk of various eye diseases, especially late forms of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), and could protect the ocular cells against oxidative damage and blue light.

PAVING THE WAY TO WOMEN'S HEALTH
- Menopausal Health
- Bone Health
- Cardiovascular Health
There is a growing need for an alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), and to develop natural solutions for helping menopausal women. Soy Isoflavones are a promising alternative to HRT and have been studied extensively for their potential to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause.
Isoflavones are classified as phytoestrogens — plant-derived compounds with estrogenic
activity, and include Daidzein, Genistein & Glycitein. Of these, Daidzein & Genistein are seen as the major components with clinically evidenced health benefits, while Glycitein does not show any such evidence.
Bio-gen Extracts manufactures OptiFlavone™, Soy Isoflavones 40% which is standardized for Daidzein & Genistein.
FenuLean® is a debitterized and defatted ingredient derived from Fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum-graecum). Fenugreek seeds are extremely bitter and not catered to the global palette.
FenuLean® is manufactured using a patent-pending process that completely eliminates the bitterness of the product while improving its palatability and retaining its intrinsic beneficial components for weight management and overall gut-health.
An 18 subject cross-over study was conducted where FenuLean® was consumed by the subjects in 5g & 10g dosages. Satiety, hunger & fullness were recorded before & after consumption of FenuLean®, and the product proved to maintain the satiety level of individuals for more than 3 hours.
To further validate the efficacy & safety of FenuLean®, a 100 subject parallel study was conducted where the same dosages were administered to the subjects and compared against a control group for appetite scores, changes in body-weight, BMI, blood glucose & serum insulin levels. Both dosages of FenuLean® showed statistically significant improvements in terms of reduced appetite, decrease in weight & BMI while maintaining the blood glucose & serum insulin levels.
All around Wellness & Protection
ThymoPure®, our Nigella sativa extract standardized to Thymoquinone offers a unique solution with potential benefits in immunomodulatory function, immunopotentiation, lymphocytes & cytokine production.
ThymoPure® is available as Nigella sativa Powder 2.5% Thymoquinone and Nigella sativa Oil 5% Thymoquinone with applications in softgel capsules, hardgel capsules, tablets, gummies and beverages.
ThymoPure® is a clean-label, solvent-free extract of Nigella sativa standardized to Thymoquinone. Nigella sativa (black caraway, also known as black cumin, nigella, kalojeere and kalonji) is traditionally used in its seed form as a spice in Indian, Middle Eastern & Polish cuisines. It is an annual flowering plant in the family Ranunculaceae, native to south & southwest Asia.
Nigella sativa also contains linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid and trans-anethole along with aromatics like thymoquinone, dihydrothymoquinone, p-cymene, carvacrol, a-thujene, thymol, a-pinene, f3-pinene and trans-anethole.
OPTIMIZED PAIN RELIEF & RECOVERY
The growth of the older population has created an increasing need for age-related solutions for pain relief. In parallel, those following an active lifestyle are also looking for effective solutions for exercise recovery.
Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) could offer a promising solution in both instances as it helps with rejuvenation and rehabilitation due to its analgesic and neuroprotective qualities.
PEA is an endogenous fatty acid produced naturally in the body in response to injury and stress, however, in very small amounts. Therefore, supplementation may be required for the aging and active population alike.
Bio-gen Extracts manufactures high-quality, micronized PEA, ideal for use in a variety of end product applications.
