Safe coatings for guaranteed SOD bioactivity

CoatingsAs a protein, SOD is subjected to gastric-degradation by digestive enzymes. Bionov guarantees the highest SOD bioactivity through the development of specific coatings adapted to the formulation of numerous nutritional applications. Each Bionov coating solution has been scientifically demonstrated to provide gastric-protection and preserve the SOD activity of SOD B®.

SOD B®: first natural source of bioactive SOD by oral route

SOD B® is microencapsulated in order to provide an enteric-coating protection able to inhibit SOD degradation during the digestive process. The Bionov patented C3 microencapsulation technology enables SOD B® to reach the intestinal tract with the guaranteed highest SOD activity. Once in the intestinal tract, SOD B® is released from the coating to provide its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Thanks to its expertise in coatings development, Bionov was the first to propose a natural and bioactive source of SOD for nutritional applications.

Gastric Protection

Demonstrated gastric protection

The efficiency of Bionov coatings has been scientifically demonstrated. The research team of Bionov have shown that the SOD activity of non-coated SOD B® is quickly lost after its introduction in the gastric environment, while the SOD activity of coated SOD B® is progressively increased, highlighting the release of SOD B® along the intestinal tract.
