BetaVia™ Nature's Immune and Gut Promoter

BetaVia™ is a naturally sourced, algae-based beta glucan dietary ingredient that uniquely supports both the immune and gastrointestinal systems. Derived from a proprietary strain of Euglena gracilis algae1, BetaVia offers diverse product forms suitable for various applications, including water dispersible options.

Science-Backed Benefits2-24

BetaVia serves as a postbiotic, supporting both immune and gastrointestinal health. It aids in maintaining a robust immune system and a healthy respiratory tract while promoting digestive health. Additionally, BetaVia offers potential protection against oxidative stress, further enhancing its role in overall health support.

Why Choose BetaVia?

  1. Label Friendly Beta Glucan: Crafted from non-GMO algae adhering to strict quality standards
  2. Purity: BetaVia is available in two concentrations, >50% beta glucan and >95% beta glucan - the purest beta glucan available
  3. Clinical Evidence: Supported by clinical studies showcasing dual benefits for immune and gastrointestinal (GI) health

Clinical Research Highlights

BetaVia employs a triple-action protection mechanism3, involving priming key immune cells, shaping the microbiome, and safeguarding intestinal barrier integrity. This approach enhances immune health by interacting with innate immune cells crucial for overall immune function, particularly vital given the significant immune system presence in the gut.

In a 90-day double-blind, placebo-controlled study3, BetaVia demonstrated effectiveness in reducing the likelihood and severity of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) symptoms, yielding significant results compared to the placebo group. Participants experienced 70% fewer URTI symptoms, with a 3.3-day decrease in sick days and 10 fewer days with URTI symptoms during the trial period.

Patented Production Process

BetaVia's efficient fermentation process ensures quality and consistency, adhering to current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs), setting it apart from other immune and gut health ingredients.

Formulation Opportunities

BetaVia serves as a stable and highly adaptable ingredient, seamlessly integrating into a wide array of formulations. Our Customer Laboratory Service team specializes in leveraging our ingredients to assist in bringing your products to life. Choose BetaVia for a natural, efficacious, and scientifically supported solution to enhance your immune and gut health formulations.
