The Infinite Potential of Microorganisms & Fermentation

Get to Know Gnosis by Lesaffre 

An innovative biotechnology company, Gnosis by Lesaffre specializes in developing, manufacturing, and selling active ingredients, nutritional yeasts, probiotics, and prebiotics. With the 2018 acquisition of Gnosis Advanced Biotech by the Lesaffre Group, which then merged with Lesaffre Human Care, they have established themselves as experts in human health and wellbeing due to Lesaffre’s expertise in yeast production and fermentation, Gnosis Biotech’s innovative knowledge of active molecules for human health care, and, most recently, the scientific expertise of NattoPharma.  

Quatrefolic® – a Fourth Generation Folate 

Quatrefolic® is the glucosamine salt of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and is structurally analogous to the reduced and active form of folic acid.  An innovative dietary ingredient designed to act as a nutrient in all areas where folic acid and folate supplementation is recommended and allowed.   

Quatrefolic® is considered a “finished” folate, meaning that the body can use it immediately without any kind of metabolization. 

Health Benefits: Humans need to maintain an adequate dietary intake of folate during various stages of their lives.  Folate plays an essential role in cell division and DNA synthesis and is involved in periods of rapid growth and development, such as pregnancy and infancy.   

  • Infants and Children: Infants, children and adolescents are in a critical phase of growth and the proper level of folate is recommended to prevent a variety of medical conditions such as anemia. 
  • Fertility: Quatrefolic® can make a difference, bypassing folate metabolism disturbances, improving fertility and increasing success rates in infertility treatment. 
  • Pregnancy:  Helps maintain sufficient levels of folate during pregnancy, lowering the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) and birth defects. 
  • Mood:  Supplementation with folate may help reduce unbalanced mood symptoms.  In particular, the active form of 5-MTHF is needed in the brain for the synthesis of norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. 

MenaQ7®: The Only Clinically Proven Vitamin K2 as MK-7 for Bone and Heart Health 

With over 22+ clinical studies that prove safe and effective health benefits. A steadfast commitment to Vitamin K2 research and development assures MenaQ7 is a superior product based on the following important criteria: 

  • Cardiovascular Health: An adequate intake of Vitamin K2 has been shown to positively influence the cardiovascular system. 
  • Bone Health: Bone loss occurs naturally as we age, but with sufficient Vitamin K2 intakes, particularly starting at an early age, this loss can indeed be slowed. 
  • Children’s Health: Vitamin K-insufficient diets put children at risk of not optimizing their ability to grow strong bones and potentially, a well-functioning cardiovascular system later in life. 


Adonat®: S-Adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe) 

The leading brand of S-Adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe) 

A compound produced naturally by the body that is required for proper brain functioning.  SAMe is involved in more than one hundred biochemical pathways and it has been shown to have benefits for the mood, liver, joints and more. 

  • Brain Health: SAMe supplementation with Adonat® Premium SAMe, can represent a comprehensive solution to tackle brain health, working in the most important areas of neurotransmission, neuroprotection and neuroplasticity. 
  • Joint and Liver Health: Adonat® Premium SAMe supplementation can represent an important factor in promoting the maintenance of healthy functioning and in counteracting compromised conditions. 

Emothion® – Crystalline Form of S-Acetyl Glutathione (GSH)  

A powerful antioxidant agent that can help promote immunity and liver health through the natural replenishment of glutathione. Traditional GSH supplementation has been plagued with poor absorption and hydrolytic degradation in the body. 

Emothion® has a quicker dissolution rate and more efficient absorption making it more efficacious and efficient for oral absorption.  GSH is one of the body’s most powerful antioxidant agents, but chronic oxidative stress, pathogens, and the aging process can reduce GSH levels.  Restoring GSH is an effective tool for managing the aforementioned conditions, and when it comes to replenishing GSH, Emothion® stands out as the top choice.
