Clinically Studied BetaVia™

BetaVia™ is a line of clinically studied beta 1,3 glucans sourced from a proprietary strain of algae. Through an efficient fermentation process, Kemin provides beta-glucans at concentrations of greater than 50% or greater than 95% in powder form, including water dispersible versions.

  1. Clinical evidence supports multiple benefits of this product 1
  2. Research suggests a reduction in upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) symptoms and days with URTIs fueled by “triple action” protection1
  3. Supports gut health10, an integral part of a healthy immune system and overall health

Why Try BetaVia?

Feeling physically and nutritionally healthy is crucial for leading a fulfilling and active life. Feeling good makes us more likely to experience positive emotions, enables us to participate fully in our daily activities, such as work, exercise, spending time with loved ones or pursuing our interests and hobbies. However, it's a common human tendency to take good health for granted until it's compromised with unpleasant symptoms.  Did you know that upper respiratory tract infections are the most common infections6 humans experience? In the United States alone, these infections result in more than 20 million lost work days annually7, which carries a significant economic burden. In fact, one study revealed that the financial cost of loss of productivity hovers around $25 billion.8

Fortunately, BetaVia’s clinically studied immune health ingredients may be able to help. This patented2 algae-based beta glucan is made to support a healthy immune system. Science behind BetaVia™ suggests that it may prime key innate immune cells, shape the microbiome, and protect gut barrier integrity. This allows a comprehensive approach to immune health through a “triple action” protection.1,3-5

Clinically Studied Immune Health Ingredient1

A 90-day double-blind, placebo-controlled study was completed to assess BetaVia’s efficacy. The clinical study included males and females between 25 and 65 years of age and showed promising results regarding BetaVia's ability to boost innate immune system health. The innate immune system is the body’s non-specific line of defense against a host of pathogens.

Researchers found that BetaVia reduced the likelihood that an individual will experience fewer days of URTI symptoms. In addition, those taking BetaVia reported lower symptom severity. Importantly, these key results were statistically significant compared to placebo.

Simply put, according to this study individuals who use BetaVia are able maintain a healthy immune system.

BetaVia Features

Kemin understands that today’s consumers are selective and informed. They want the highest quality ingredients that are effective and naturally sourced. 

BetaVia is sourced from a proprietary strain of Euglena gracilis algae, a single-celled freshwater algae. The high levels of beta 1,3 glucans produced by the algae support priming of the immune system.9  Kemin holds a patent for it’s immune-modulating beta 1,3 glucans (Patent No. US 10,912,794 B2).
