Paramylon ARX Ingredients

Euglena gracilis EX55 (Main Ingredient)

Euglena are single-celled micro-algae that feed by photosynthesis (like a plant) and phagocytosis (like an animal). This characteristic places them in a “one-and-only” category, containing the nutrients of both plants and animals: 59 in total.

As a result, it is said that euglena gracilis contains all of the essential nutrients required by the human body. In addition to its use as a health supplement, cultivation is by photosynthesis, where CO2 is converted to oxygen as a byproduct, thus contributing to the global environment through reducing CO2. NASA has also considered use of euglena as a food source during research on living self-sufficiently in outer space. 

Paramylon, a unique constituent of euglena

Euglena contains paramylon, which has numerous micro-holes. 
Paramylon is a type of β-glucan found only in euglena. It has an uncountable number of micro-pores in its sponge-like structure. Some euglena strains contain more paramylon than others.
Paramylon functions like dietary fibre and helps to support the dietary system. It has a multi-porous structure and aids in the evacuation of unwanted substances from the body, and helps users attain overall health from the inside out.

PARAMYLON ARX is formulated with euglena containing more than 55% paramylon

Raw material: Paramylon-rich “white euglena”

The euglena used in PARAMYLON ARX contains such a high concentration of paramylon that it appears white under the microscope. Since 2010, Naturally Plus has been investing in the development and cultivation of paramylon-rich euglena.

The pursuit and realisation of euglena containing more than 55% paramylon

Since the launch of PARAMYLON ARX in 2010, Naturally Plus has invested in research which has steadily increased the concentration of paramylon in euglena. In this product upgrade, the paramylon concentration of the euglena used is a whopping 55% - a value that tops the industry!

PARAMYLON ARX incorporates FLORA PEPTIDE™ and xylo-oligosaccharides to support good intestinal bacteria

FLORA PEPTIDE™ with double coating: An ingredient exclusive to Naturally Plus

FLORA PEPTIDE™, which is derived from milk protein, is compatible with good intestinal bacteria in the gut. It has a two-layered coating which makes it resistant to digestion by gastric acid, and allows it to effectively reach the large intestine. FLORA PEPTIDE™ is an ingredient unique to Naturally Plus.

Xylo-oligosaccharides: Support for lactobacilli and other good intestinal bacteria

Xylo-oligosaccharides support good bacteria in the intestines. Compared to other oligosaccharides, xylo-oligosaccharides are effective even in small amounts.
