Contributes to a healthy microbiome and cardiovascular system
Contains about 90 % water-soluble microfibres
Creation of new & unique metabolites
What is Berriotics™?
Berriotics™ is a fermented powder of 10 kinds of berries namely acerola, black currant, bilberry, cherry, chokeberry, cranberry, gooseberry, mulberry, raspberry and strawberry.
Berriotics™ contains highly absorbable anthocyanidins (aglycone form of anthocyanins), flavol aglycones, aromatic acids & microfibres and has numerous fields of application! Contains almost no sugars!
Why fermenting berries?
Fermentation is a way to pre-digest the ingredients of Berriotics™. If done correctly with a variety of micro‑ organisms, the useful ingredients such as the soluble fibres, the anthocyanins and the polyphenols of the berries are being split into more accessible smaller pieces. Smaller pieces of fibres (microfibres), the anthocyanidins & flavol aglycones are important antioxidants that are directly effective in the intestine and prevent inflammation. They also act as SOD-like substances. The berry fibres are transformed into microfibres and are the ideal nutrition for intestinal bacteria.
The role of the different active ingredients of Berriotics™, created by the patented fermentation process
- water-soluble microfibres A mixture of different types of fibres that are easier to digest by the different bacteria of our microbiome. Most of the enzymes work at the ends of chains. The smaller pieces have a lot more ends. The enhanced activity of the enzymes stimulates the microbiome to make more of them by influencing the transcription factors. The broad variety of fibres offers an effective menu for a large part of the microbiome. It stimulates the growth of the indigenous probiotics and therefore contributes to a balanced ecosystem of the microbiome. Single specific fibres such as inulin, XOS, FOS, GOS… often cause complaints as bloating & flatulence. They have longer chains and are not monocultures.
- smaller anthocyanins & flavonols These smaller flavonoid polyphenols:
- have enhanced antioxidative & anti-inflammatory properties
- have in their aglycone form a complementary effect on prebiotics
- SOD-like substances These are small plant molecules with a similar SOD-activity, such as hesperitin (aglycon form of hesperidin) & other transformed flavonoids.These SOD-like substances are:
- easily absorbed by the body
- stable & resistance against gastric acid, bile salts & enzymes
- responsible for the elimination of O2.- or superoxide anion
- Increased levels of certain vitamins and improvement of mineral bioacessibility
Berriotics™ has as main goal to help the microbiome to become more balanced.
More and more scientific studies show the importance of fermented foods. An important study at the University of Montpellier, published in the journal ‘Food Research International’ shows the beneficial changes in bioactive substances during lactic acid fermentation.
- Beneficial effect on the microbiome
- Powerful antioxidant
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Beneficial effect on cardiovascular diseases
- May slow cognitive decline
- Beneficial effect on myopia
- Slowing down skin aging
