News Release

Nexira is enriching its expertise in natural phytoingredients by launching the first ingredient combining two Sage species. Cognivia™ is a unique synergistic combination of Spanish Sage essential oil (Salvia lavandulifolia) and Garden Sage leaf (Salvia officinalis) aqueous extract, specially developed for people wishing to improve their cognitive faculties.

Cognivia™ is produced using Nexira’s botanical extraction expertise with a high quality process and rigorous traceability controls. It benefits from a micro-encapsulation technology with Acacia gum selected by NEXIRA in order to protect sage essential oil from oxidation and drying process, and enhance the powder’s water solubility.

Science is confirming sage’s benefits on cognitive performance. Indeed, bibliographic evidences were made on the enhancement of memory capacities (spacial and long term memory and speed of memory), as well as learning process, concentration and alertness. These health benefits are supported by several clinical studies. Sage is also scientifically known to be a powerful antioxidant.

Today, Nexira is going further by proving the beneficial synergistic effect of Spanish Sage essential oil and Garden Sage leaf aqueous extract on long-term memory, in both single and prolonged use. Cognivia’s in vivo study demonstrated significant results compared to individual Sage sources.

 Cognivia will be soon available in organic-certified grade.

In addition, at Supply Side West Nexira will also highlight Fibregum™, the first acacia fiber approved by Non-GMO Project. This verification is the latest achievement by Nexira in its aim to provide clean label and natural solutions with the only range of acacia fiber ingredients verified by the Non-GMO Project which confirms its global leadership in acacia gum supply.

The Fibregum range has already captured the attention of numerous companies for its technical and functional benefits. It is a 100% vegetable ingredient offering more than 90% dietary soluble fiber, great digestive tolerance, proven prebiotic properties, and associated intestinal health benefits backed by numerous clinical studies.

This makes Fibregum an excellent choice thanks to its sustainable sourcing and available organic certifications. Fibregum is an ingredient solution requested by manufacturers to satisfy the increasing consumer demand for healthy, identifiable, natural and organic products.
