Manufacturing

(Some real life examples)

Manufacturing fine quality, high performing ingredients requires know-how, time and precision. Our ingredients are made in India’s most established herbal extraction facility with modern technologies. With over 5 decades of experience in extracting botanicals, it brings unique skills of traditional knowledge and modern science.

 

Optimizing drying conditions

No heat drying for extracts containing volatile actives

Significance of Solvent selection

Saponins and mucilage extracted from musli root

Significance of Solvent selection

Glycosides vs tannins
from Arjuna

Full spectrum actives

All boswellic acids vs selective concentrated boswellic acids

Low temperature spray drying

Clean Extraction

Optimizing drying conditions

Herbs like boswellia, ginger and commiphora are rich in volatile actives. No heat drying ensures the retention of volatile actives in ginger, boswellia and commiphora extracts.

Significance of solvent selection

Best example is musli roots, generic extracts of safed musli and Kali musli are extracted using methanol as the extraction solvent for higher saponins yields but then it compromises on the mucilage content which has the potency for male sexual health. HeezOn® contains musli extract made through a patented process ensuring both saponins and mucilage.

Significance of solvent selection

Generic Arjuna extracted with organic solvents is standardized for tannins and arjunolic acid. Research demonstrates organic solvent extracts of Arjuna causes interruptions in the excitability of the heart and may also cause arrhythmias without a consistent inotropic action. Only Oxyjun® is standardized for polyphenols, glycosides and is free from arjunolic acid and hence suitable for a healthy population.

Full spectrum actives

Full Spectrum extract focuses on complete range of phytochemicals which works in synergy as against concentrated extract containing only selected actives. New Research into the chemistry of Boswellia and its traditional usage is based on the synergistic spectrum of Boswellia actives, rather than its single isolated compounds. Analysis of boswellic extract shows all major boswellic acids involved in the desired pharmacological efficacy namely 11- ketobetaboswellic acid, Acetyl 11-ketobeta boswellic acid, boswellic acids (Alpha & Beta), Acetyl boswellic acids (Alpha & Beta).

Low Temperature Spray Drying

Low temperature spray drying ensures optimum retention of color as well as the bio-actives. This results in superior batch to batch consistency in the organoleptic as well as the phytochemical properties.

Clean Extraction

No harsh solvents used for extraction. This makes the extract perfectly safe for human consumption and also complies to different regulatory requirements across the globe with respect to residual solvents. All this goodness is validated by the R.A.W and C.L.E.A.N certification for EnXtra®

Alpinia galanga or Alpinia calcarata

Out of several species of Alpinia, three most commonly grown species are Alpinia galanga, Alpinia calcarata and Alpinia officinarum. The roots of Alpinia galanga and Alpinia officinarum are well identified in trade as greater and lesser galangal respectively. But the roots of Alpinia galanga and Alpinia calcarata appear very similar to the untrained eye and hence any adulteration or substitution can go unnoticed. Because of the close similarities between Alpinia calcarata and Alpinia galanga, a macroscopy, microscopy and DNA testing together helped authenticate EnXtra® raw material.

Roots for coagulating milk or male sexual health

Although hugely popular, Withania somnifera is often contaminated with related species Withania coagulans. Withania coagulans is also important plant for its property of coagulating milk. To ensure the best male sexual health benefits HeezOn® uses only DNA authenticated roots of Withania somnifera. DNA finger printing of Withania somnifera roots.
