Ginkgo
GINKGO BILOBA

Ginkgo is a plant that grows mainly in southern China, South Korea and Japan. There are now a few production areas in Europe. Ginkgo is known to promote blood circulation and improve memory. Our sourcing probably represents the best quality available in the world. Our supplier has a technology called Phytosome® which maximizes the absorption of molecules of interest (ginkgoflavoglycosides and terpene lactones). The dose of active ingredients used can thus be greatly reduced while allowing maximum efficiency to be obtained. Phytosome® is a registered trademark of INDENA S.P.A Italy, so our supplier is Italian.

Evening primrose oil
EVENING PRIMROSE OIL

Evening primrose is a plant that we come across more and more in our French countryside. Its oil, golden, offers many benefits, especially for women (skin & hormonal balance). Our product is highly dosed and contains 99% evening primrose oil. Vitamin E (1%) preserves the quality of the oil by limiting its oxidation. It also has the effect of protecting cells against oxidative stress. We use premium quality evening primrose oil from first cold pressing, produced in Spain (pharma grade oil, meeting GMP/GMP standards).
------
Permitted Claims
• Vitamin E helps protect cells against oxidative stress.
• Evening primrose provides polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which help maintain optimum comfort during menstruation.

Astaxanthine
ASTAXANTHIN

Astaxanthin is a pigment from the beta-carotene family derived from a freshwater algae, Haematococcus pluvialis. It is she who is at the origin of the pink color of shellfish, salmon and pink flamingos. Too little used to have claims, it would be one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world (> 60 times more powerful than vitamin C). It is often used to prepare sensitive skin for sun exposure (1, 2), limit age spots (3) and also to improve visual function (4). Our astaxanthin comes from Sweden!

Raisins
GRAPE EXTRACT

No need to present the grape in detail, even less to the French. The grains and the skin that make up this fruit are rich in tannins, active members of the polyphenol family. The latter have very widely known and documented antioxidant properties. Our French grape extract is titrated at 95% in polyphenols, therefore 60% in OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins). OPCs help strengthen the entire vascular system (hypertension, inflammation) (1). They easily bind to the collagen that makes up our skin and thus limits its destruction. The skin thus becomes more resistant and more elastic (2). Our extract is of course French!

BACOPA
BACOPA MONNIERI

Bacopa is a recognized plant of the Indian pharmacopoeia (Ayurveda). It has been used in India for more than 3000 years to regulate cognitive functions, intellectual and nervous disorders. Our extract is titrated to 25% bacosides. It is difficult to source a quality Bacopa since the plant is susceptible to diseases and is often the subject of chemical treatments. Purchasing through well-controlled channels is essential. We associate it with Ginkgo biloba to reinforce the benefits on memory.
-------
Permitted Claims
• Bacopa monniera may have a positive effect on the brain system.
• May have both short-term and long-term memory-enhancing effects.
• Could help increase concentration, intelligence.

QUINOA
VITAMIN B COMPLEX FROM QUINOA

Group B Vitamins (8 different) cover many functions, often related to energy, nervous or reproductive metabolism (B9). Our vitamin B complex contains the 8 vitamins, in active and natural form, as if you were consuming a vegetable rich in vitamins. Quinoa seeds are germinated and then dried. Thanks to germination, the content of B vitamins is 100 times higher, compared to the consumption of a whole quinoa seed cooked in the normal way. Complicated to find more concentrated in natural vitamin B. This vitamin complex is produced in Austria.

Acacia
ACACIA FIBER

The acacia produces, through its sap, a resin which, once dry, takes on the appearance of an amber stone. This dried resin, called gum arabic, is made up of a large proportion of fibres. It is for this reason that the ingredient is commonly called "acacia fiber". This dietary fiber is totally natural, it is extremely soluble and digestible, unlike the fibers that make up wood.
Acacia fiber has capacities to regulate transit and prebiotic properties (which promote the development of good bacteria in the digestive tract.
We frequently use this ingredient but we do not claim its properties for our products. Indeed, we use it at very low doses (a few tens of milligrams per capsule), to ensure optimal filling of the capsules (flow during filling and sometimes occupy the space that remains in the capsules). Our supplier claims, for this organic ingredient, a neutral carbon footprint and guarantees the support of the local populations who take this sap from the acacia trees.
Acacia fiber produced by the world market leader, a Frenchman! At Santerra, even "secondary" ingredients have value!

ZINC
ZINC (BISGLYCINATE)

Zinc is a trace element that plays an important role in a large number of functions: immunity, fertility, vision, quality of the skin, nails, hair, …. You should know that zinc does not exist naturally in a pure form. It is difficult to isolate from the foods in which it is found in relatively large quantities, which makes it difficult to use natural forms in food supplements. If you want to consume a natural source, regularly abuse oysters. Otherwise, it is found on the market in the form of oxide or sulphates, two forms with very low bioavailability. The bisglycinate form (zinc bound to an amino acid: glycine) is much better absorbed by the body. It is this form that we prefer.
------
Permitted Claims
• Zinc contributes to normal DNA synthesis.
• Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction.
• Zinc contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system.
• Zinc helps protect cells against oxidative stress.
• Zinc plays a role in the process of cell division.
• Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.
• Zinc helps maintain normal testosterone levels in the blood.
• Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, normal hair, normal nails.

sélénium
SELENIUM

Selenium plays an essential role for immunity, the nervous and muscular system as well as to guarantee a good functioning of the thyroid. It is nevertheless an element to never overdose too much (maximum 300 µg)! In natural form, you will find it in large quantities in Brazil nuts. In food supplements, like us, favor preparations based on selenomethionine (selenium associated with an amino acid: methionine, from biofermentation) since the body will absorb 90% of the selenium contained in your products. Avoid products containing selenite or sodium selenate if possible.
------
Permitted Claims
Selenium contributes to normal thyroid function.
• Selenium contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system.
• Selenium contributes to the maintenance of normal nails.
• Selenium contributes to the maintenance of normal hair.
• Selenium contributes to normal spermatogenesis.
• Selenium helps protect cells against oxidative stress.

in our product

VITAMINE C
VITAMIN C (L-ASCORBIC ACID)

Vitamin C plays a role in a large number of body functions and promotes general tone. It is one of the most important vitamins for health: immunity, assimilation of iron (constituent of hemoglobin which ensures the transport of oxygen in your blood), antioxidant... . Choose the L-ascorbic form like us, they are equivalent to those you will find in fruits such as oranges or lemons. Why not acerola in our products? Quite simply because acerola-based products are not concentrated enough to be combined with other ingredients.
------
Permitted Claims
Vitamin C contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system.
• Vitamin C contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
• Vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen to ensure the normal function of bones.
• Vitamin C helps reduce fatigue.
• Vitamin C increases iron absorption.
• Vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen to ensure the normal function of the skin.

BISGLYCINATE DE MAGNÉSIUM
MAGNESIUM BISGLYCINATE

The history of this form of magnesium is the same as for calcium: organic form, an amino acid carrier (glycine), highly available and one of the best digestive tolerances among all forms of magnesium. It is one of the most expensive forms of magnesium on the market. Preferred form, especially in the face of marine magnesium, magnesium oxide, chloride or carbonates, which all contain magnesium that is very poorly absorbed and very poorly tolerated by the digestive system. Their only advantage is that they are very inexpensive, but what is the point if they are not assimilated?
------
Permitted Claims
• Magnesium contributes to normal muscle function.
• Magnesium contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
• Magnesium helps reduce fatigue.

• Magnesium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
• Magnesium plays a role in the process of cell division.
• Magnesium contributes to normal energy metabolism.
• Magnesium contributes to normal psychological functions.

in our product

GLYCEROPHOSPHATES DE MAGNSIUM
MAGNESIUM GLYCEROPHOSPHATE

Glycerophosphate is a magnesium quite similar to bisglycinate, although a little bit less bioavailable. It is very well tolerated digestively and has the advantage of being liposoluble (soluble in fats). It is also a source of phosphorus.
------
Permitted Claims
• Magnesium contributes to normal muscle function.
• Magnesium contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
• Magnesium helps reduce fatigue.

• Magnesium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
• Magnesium plays a role in the process of cell division.

in our product

L-PIDOLATE DE MAGNÉSIUM
MAGNESIUM L-PIDOLATE

As for calcium, magnesium pidolate is widely present in plants, it is highly bioavailable (>90%) and very well tolerated digestively. The effectiveness of this form results from the complementarity between the mineral and an organic anion naturally present in the body: pyrrolidone carboxylic acid or pidolic acid.
------
Permitted Claims
• Magnesium contributes to normal muscle function.
• Magnesium contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
• Magnesium helps reduce fatigue.

• Magnesium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
