Nexira is launching Cognivia, a unique synergistic combination of Spanish Sage essential oil (Salvia lavandulifolia) and Garden Sage leaf (Salvia officinalis) aqueous extract, specially developed for people wishing to improve their cognitive faculties.
Cognivia is produced using Nexira’s botanical extraction expertise with a high quality process and rigorous traceability controls.
It benefits from a micro-encapsulation technology with Acacia gum selected by NEXIRA in order to protect sage essential oil from oxidation and the drying process, and also to enhance the powder’s water solubility.
Sage, also called “sacred grass,” is traditionally used for its multiple properties: digestive, calming, etc. Today, science is confirming its benefits on cognitive performance. Evidence suggest enhancement of memory capacities (spatial and long term memory and speed of memory), as well as learning process, concentration and alertness. These health benefits are supported by several clinical studies. Sage is also scientifically known to be a potent antioxidant.
Today, Nexira is going further by proving the beneficial synergistic effect of Spanish Sage essential oil and Garden Sage leaf aqueous extract on long-term memory, in both single and prolonged use: Cognivia’s in vivo study demonstrated significant results compared to individual Sage sources, the company said.
Nexira’s portfolio of products includes a wide range of organic products such as premium ingredients like Serenzo (stress management & mood improvement), Oli-Ola (cardiovascular health), ID-alG (calorie reduction & well-being), NeOpuntia & Cactinea (weight management) and numerous high quality botanical extracts
Cognivia will be soon available in organic-certified grade.
At SupplySide West Booth Z153, Nexira will also highlight Fibregum, the first acacia fiber approved by Non-GMO Project, according to the company. This verification is the latest achievement by Nexira in its aim to provide clean label and natural solutions with the only range of acacia fiber ingredients verified by the Non-GMO Project.

It is a 100% vegetable ingredient offering more than 90% dietary soluble fiber, great digestive tolerance, proven prebiotic properties, and associated intestinal health benefits backed by numerous clinical studies.
