📣 Second Pre-Clinical Study on Symetrian™ Published

Unigen at SupplySide East 2024

At SupplySide East this year, we’ll be focusing on two powerhouse ingredients for getting deep restful sleep and building a strong immune defense.

Top selling Maizinol® is popular for its clinically proven effects on sleep quality (+49%) and duration (+47%), and is used as standalone or partnered with industry ingredients, such as melatonin, for novel consumer product formulations.

Symetrian™ – our mushroom-based immune support ingredient – recently published impressive data from 2 clinical trials and 2 pre-clinicals effectively showcasing its ability to help support a rapid immune response.

Spotlight: Maizinol®

Maizinol® is a unique formulation derived from the leaf of immature Zea mays plants that contains proprietary standardized natural compounds known to bind to melatonin receptors and produce melatonin-like effects for better sleep quality.

The global sleep crisis is a growing concern, leading to a booming market for sleep support supplements. Lack of sleep has been linked to insomnia, chronic diseases, depression, weight gain, and even job performance. As a result, consumers are seeking out natural options to manage stress and improve their sleep. Maizinol® is a natural sleep aid that works through the melatonin pathway and increases the biosynthesis of melatonin. It doesn’t cause headaches, next-day grogginess, or interfere with the body’s natural circadian rhythm.

Maizinol® is a clinically-proven ingredient that:

  • can increase deep sleep by up to 47%.
  • can improve sleep quality by up to 49%.
  • is hormone-free and highly compatible in formulation.
