                BioActor Presenting MicrobiomeX® and Naxus® at the 15th Annual IPC conference

                The 15th International Scientific Conference on Probiotics, Prebiotics, Gut Microbiota and Health – IPC2022 will be held during 27 – 30 June 2022 in Bratislava.

                The IPC conference is the world’s biggest scientific conference that focuses solely on basic and applied research of probiotics, prebiotics, gut microbiota and health. More than 400 scientists from over more than 80 countries have attended the conference last season.

                The scientific program will focus on current advances in the research, production and use of probiotics and prebiotics with particular focus on their role in maintaining health and preventing diseases. At IPC, leading scientists from industry and academia present current advances in understanding and influencing the interaction between gut microbiota and human health.

                The conference enables the interactive exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge. It is focused on evidence-based benefits, health claims proven in scientific experiments and clinical trials.

                BioActor is an active contributor and confirmed partner of this conference. Hans van der Saag (CEO) will present on our ingredient Naxus®, a prebiotic with metabolic and immune effects, and Yala Stevens (CSO) presents the clinical and mechanistic research on MicrobiomeX® in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients and elderly subjects.

                Naxus® presentation by Hans van der Saag (CEO)

                Naxus® is a native arabinoxylan extract from the wheat endosperm. It is a powerful and well-tolerated prebiotic with metabolic and immune effects. Due to its complex branched structure, Naxus® is slowly and selectively fermented by multiple species of the microbiota, inducing a remarkable bifidogenic effect without causing gas formation and intestinal discomfort. It induces a remarkable microbiota shift and increased short-chain fatty acids production, with proven effects on immune health and glycemic control.

                MicrobiomeX® presentation by Yala Stevens (CSO)

                MicrobiomeX® is a natural extract from citrus fruit designed to beneficially modulate the microbiome composition in the gut. It’s a first-in-class Flavobiotic® that protects the gut barrier and directly leverages the gut microbiome’s potential. This results in enhanced immune health, as well as anti-inflammatory effects.

                IBS is a functional gastrointestinal disorder with various symptoms including pain and discomfort in the abdomen. Also, elderly often develop imbalances in their gut microbiota and often experience discomfort.

                Patients with IBS and elderly would benefit substantially from treatments that could relieve their symptoms and improve their gut health. The flavonoids in MicrobiomeX® have the potential to benefit individuals with gastrointestinal conditions because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

                Business opportunities

                The IPC conference is a great opportunity to reconnect with colleagues from all over the world and make new contacts. Hans van der Saag (CEO) and Yala Stevens (CSO) will be there to represent BioActor’s portfolio, with a focus on our gut health ingredients. Feel free to pass by at any time to chat about our innovative ingredients for gut health support!

                BioActor showcasing WATTS’UP® at the 19th Annual ISSN Conference

                The International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) is the world’s leader in providing science-based sports nutrition and supplement information. This year they are organizing their 19th Annual Conference and Expo. Anyone interested in sports science/nutrition can attend!

                The conference addresses a diverse audience such as researchers, students, dieticians, sports nutritionists, but also the athletes themselves. Therefore, the conference offers a platform to discuss various hot topics related to sports nutrition, such as sports supplements, elucidation of the physiological mechanisms behind nutraceutical interventions, as well as nutritional effects on performance.

                The strength of the annual ISSN conference is that top researchers present on novel paradigms in sports nutrition. Besides, it is also an excellent opportunity to make new contacts and reconnect with colleagues from all over the world.

                BioActor is an active contributor to this conference, since Yala Stevens, our chief scientific officer will present the clinical results on our ingredient WATTS’UP®. Title of the study: The effect of citrus flavonoid extract supplementation on anaerobic capacity in moderately trained athletes: a randomized controlled trial.

                Original research paper presentation by Yala Stevens (CSO)

                Previous studies have demonstrated that supplementation with flavonoids from citrus fruits may be an effective strategy to improve exercise performance in male athletes. Repeated intake of 500 mg of a specific citrus fruit extract improved aerobic exercise performance. Also, an increased absolute power output and a decreased oxygen consumption/power ratio were observed.

                Yala will be presenting new insights on the beneficial effects of 400 mg and 500 mg citrus fruit extract (WATTS’UP®) supplementation on short-term high-intensity exercise performance. In this study, we used a WinGate protocol, the gold standard for testing high-intensity performance for 92 male and female participants.

                Join us on Friday 17th of June at 10:10am for Yala’s presentation in the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort (Florida).
