Functionality in the area of men’s health.

From the Biogredia portfolio, here are some key ingredients worthy of consideration in new and revised formulations.


from Pharmactive is a unique proprietary combination of cereal pollen standardized to ≥ 50% phytosterols (as β-sitosterol) by GC and ≥ 1% essential amino
acids by HPLC.

β-sitosterol is a phytosterol that has clinical evidence as an inhibitor for testosterone production*.

Essential amino acids from pollen have potent anti-inflammatory properties, as well as clinical evidence for palliating benign prostate hyperplasia symptoms*.

Plasys300® is especially designed for men’s healthy ageing demands. It blocks the over-stimulation
of α-adrenergic receptors at the prostate, reducing the urinary tract vasoconstriction as well as urinary discomfort symptoms*.
Plasys300® offers anti-proliferative effects at the prostatic cells, preventing prostate enlargement*.



from Gencor is a unique extract of Trigonella foenum-graecum seed standardized to a proprietary matrix of saponin glycosides that Gencor has named Fenuside™. These constituents have been clinically proven to boost testosterone levels, support healthy sexual desire and vitality, muscle mass and power, which help increase sports performance and reduce symptoms of andropause in men.

Supplementing with Testofen® with regular resistance exercise can help men maintain healthy levels of free testosterone that are already within the normal range, which, in turn, supports multiple bodily functions.

from Pharmactive is a damiana extract (Turnera diffusa) standardized to ≥1.5% bioflavonoids by HPLC and to a pool of 3 biomolecules, which have been related to sexual appetite boost properties*.

Liboost® main mechanisms of action for men:
• Nitric Oxide (NO) release: Liboost® may increase NO release in endothelial tissue, promoting vasodilatation*.

• PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase type 5) activity inhibition: Liboost® may inhibit an enzyme key to the degradation of cGMP, which induces smooth muscle relaxation, resulting in penile erection*.

• Testosterone levels balance: Liboost®, may inhibit testosterone degradation, maintaining its levels for an adequate erectile function*.


from Gencor is a proprietary blend of Cocoa bean (Theobroma cacao) and pomegranate peel (Punica granatum). It is a food derived, standardised and IP protected testosterone boosting extract that increases in-cell testosterone production and inhibits aromatase activity as shown in in-vitro testing.
It also demonstrated its ability to aid in muscle strength and growth in young males while in another study, significantly improved age-related male symptoms.

Features Include:
• Plant derived Testosterone booster
• Standardised Composition that meets Global Regulations that is IP Protected
• Clinically supported dosing as low as 200 mg
• Suitable for multiple applications including beverages; shots; powders



from Pharmactive is backed by 8 human clinical studies that have shown improved mood in healthy consumers with occasional stress and anxiety, and to improve sleeplessness*.

The following main mechanisms of action of affron® have been identified:
• Inhibition of the reuptake mechanism of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, increasing the concentrations of these neurotransmitters in the synaptic cleft of neurons, thereby improving mood balance*.

• Antioxidant effect against the excessive oxidative stress produced during occasional anxiety or stress processes in the central nervous system*.

• Anti-inflammatory action in stressed neural tissue, decreasing hippocampal levels of apoptotic biomarkers and stress signal molecules*.

A new, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study provided further confirmation of the sleep-enhancing effects of 28 days of affron® supplementation at 14 mg, 1 hour before bedtime. For the first time, a single dose of affron® 1 hour before sleep revealed the new possible mechanism of action influencing sleep hormones.



is an extract of Ageratum conyzoides. It is a hydroalcoholic extract of aerial parts and has traditionally been used in the Caribbean to maintain prostate and urinary health. It contains numerous chemical compounds such as: terpenoids, sterols, flavonoids, coumarins and lignans. It has been shown to maintain prostate health.


Ageratum conyzoides L is a 5-a-reductase inhibitor. It has shown to be able to relax muscles around the urethra and smooth muscles of the neck of the bladder helping relieve urinary retention and frequency. It can also block conversion of testosterone to DHT with subsequent reduction in prostate size
improving urine flow.

In a benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Study, 250mg AGEprost* significantly:
• Reduces symptoms of BPH in healthy men
• Reduces day and night time urinary frequency
• Inhibits 5-alpha-reductase enzyme activity


Ashwagandha from Kerry displays attributes which include lowest clinically substantiated dosing for reducing overall stress/anxiety – patented, and with THREE bioactives.

Sensoril® Ashwagandha is a powerful adaptogen derived from a unique blend of both leaves and roots of the Withania somnifera plant to provide optimal efficacy and bioactive diversity. The proprietary blend has been studied in more than ten human clinical trials. Sensoril® has excellent applications in supplements, foods, beverages, and personal care products.

• Manages and reduces stress
• Boosts energy levels
• Improves focus and reaction time
• Increases upper & lower body strength
• Improves sleep quality
• Improves mental cognitive health, mood, fatigue, and vitality
• Supports joint health
• Supports cardiovascular health
• Supports healthy endothelial function and a healthy lipid profile



from Pharmactive is a unique aged black garlic ingredient, standardized to ≥0.1% S-allyl cysteine (SAC) by HPLC. It is a highly stable and bioavailable biomolecule that has been associated in several studies to the inhibition of oxidative damage as a result of its potent antioxidant and cardioprotective properties*.


The key to obtaining these ABG+® unique features, is to gather them exactly when the concentration of SAC is higher in the bulb*
The following ABG+ ® mechanisms of action have been identified:
• Decreasing coronary perfusion pressure, therefore improving heart contraction*.
• Balancing blood pressure*.
• Helping alleviate oxidative stress*.
