Melons from Avignon region (South of France)
The farmers we’ve partnered with, only cultivate these melons in the south of France, near Avignon. They use environmentally friendly methods including sustainable farming, and avoid using any contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides. They carefully monitor their growth as well as their SOD level, measuring it regularly. The melons are picked at maturity, like grapes for fine wines.
Every year several hundred tons of melons are harvested and then stored in a cold warehouse to preserve the SOD enzyme.
The extraction is similar to the way perfume is made: the skin is taken off, the seeds are removed, and the pulp of the melon is crushed and grounded through filters to obtain concentrated cantaloupe melon juice.
Wheat, form Loire et Cher region (center of France)
Gliadin is a protein extracted from wheat. A gliadin biopolymer layer protects the SOD allowing it to reach the intestine and enables GliSODin to be active.
Research and Development, Paris
Twenty-five scientific and clinical studies from all over the world were published in international scientific and medical journals, demonstrating the impact and effectiveness of GliSODin in fighting oxidative stress and aging.
The manufacturing process, La Rochelle (Southwest of France)
It was a great challenge to manufacture the initial products at the La Rochelle manufacturing facility. To build the Gliadin’s protective matrix, a complex industrial process had to be specifically designed.
