Green Process

A 100% natural & patented process

Bionov relies on a high-performance production tool and a multidisciplinary team to obtain the best from melon. SOD B® is produced according to a green and natural process involving only physical steps, without any solvent, additive or other chemical substances. Only the edible parts of the melon (pulp) are used. This eco-friendly extraction process enables to preserve the high SOD content of melons, through the strict management of the temperature and quick drying of the juice after concentration. Through its expertise, Bionov guarantees the highest activity of bioactive SOD on the market.
