SupplySide East attendees who visit the Kemin Human Nutrition and Health booth can meet with experts and learn more about the company’s extensive portfolio of science-backed ingredients to support whole-body solutions, including:

  • BetaVia – now available in new water-dispersible forms for applications such as drink mixes and sachets, this algae-sourced beta glucan helps support the immune system1 while protecting against oxidative stress.2
  • DailyZz – a natural, proprietary, botanical blend of dried spearmint and green tea extracts that promotes healthy, better-quality sleep and can improve next-day functioning in healthy adults who have occasional sleep complaints.3
  • Neumentix – naturally sourced from a patented line of spearmint4 bred for high levels of antioxidant polyphenols, this nootropic ingredient supports cognitive performance5, specifically for focus6 and working memory.7
  • Macu-LZ – Kemin Human Nutrition and Health’s newest carotenoid ingredient provides a combination of lutein and zeaxanthin isomers sourced from Tagetes erecta that can help relieve eye stress and aid in vision support, cognitive support and beauty from within solutions.8-11
  • Luxiva CBD distillate – certified organic by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), this hemp-based distillate is the newest addition to the Kemin portfolio that supports general health and wellness.

"We are excited for Kemin to enter a new segment: gut health,” said Swalla. “A recent study showed that our algae-sourced beta glucan for immune support, BetaVia, can also provide gastrointestinal comfort and aid in gut health.12 We will also be releasing a new product soon, which can help support intestinal barrier integrity, shape the microbiome and serve as a signaling molecule.”

SupplySide East attendees can stop by the Kemin Human Nutrition and Health booth for a “sneak peek” of its new products for the gut-health market, as well as exciting upcoming research that examines Kemin’s cognitive support ingredient Neumentix.
