The health benefits of Naxus® have been extensively evaluated in clinical, in vitro, and in vivo studies by BioActor and its scientific partners. As a prebiotic, Naxus® induces a remarkable microbiota shift and increased short-chain fatty acids production, with proven effects on immune health and glycemic control.

Uniquely, from the wheat endosperm.

Naxus® is extracted from the most nutritious part of the wheat kernel: the endosperm. This long molecule has a complex, branched structure, composed of a xylose backbone to which arabinose side chains and ferulic acid moieties are attached. As a result of this structure, Naxus® is slowly and selectively fermented in the gut without bloating.

Naxus® induces a profound microbiome-mediated immunomodulatory effect. Specific patterns of short-chain fatty acids production result in a more vigilant immune system and enhanced protection at three levels:

Gut barrier integrity

The gut barrier is the first layer of protection against the infiltration of harmful substances. Naxus® reduces gut permeability by enhancing the mucous layer and strengthening the gut wall cells’ tight junctions.

Innate immunity

Innate immune cells are white blood cells that recognize and attack any foreign substance that enters the body. Naxus® leads to the secretion of communication molecules (chemo- and cytokines) that spread the message to other immune cells to be more vigilant against foreign threats.

Adaptive immunity

Adaptive immune cells create the “memory of the immune system” . Once a threat has been recognized by such cells, they are primed to react and neutralize it immediately. Naxus® induces a higher antibody response and lowers respiratory tract infections.

Glycobiotic effect.

Naxus® is a glycobiotic as it regulates glucose and insulin serum levels in a microbiome-mediated fashion.

Due to its complex branched structure, Naxus® stimulates the production of key short-chain fatty acids by the gut microbiome that switches on a pivotal receptor for glycemic control.

Naxus® has a systemic glycobiotic effect, meaning that big “sugar spikes” and “crashes” can be avoided by consuming it at any time of the day.

Clean process, no chemicals
and no waste.

Naxus® is produced in a state-of-the-art facility, using a proprietary water-based process, where only mechanical treatments are involved, and no chemicals are used.

The efficiency of this process guarantees that zero waste is left after Naxus® is extracted. All the side-streams are pumped back into the system, ensuring a sustainable production.
