14-Jun-2022

US-based Specnova has launched a cutting-edge, high-potency ginger extract developed for joint support, mobility and healthy inflammatory response

US-based natural ingredients biotechnology company Specnova has launched a cutting-edge, high-potency ginger extract developed for joint support, mobility and healthy inflammatory response. This new product has been patented as GingerT3.

The company states that the new offering is a low-dose, fast-acting ginger extract with a unique compositional profile that inhibits three powerful targets in the body that can cause joint discomfort.

Manufacturing

This broad-spectrum ginger is created using TWO unique processes. First, key compounds found in the ginger oleoresin are extracted and concentrated. These compounds are known to inhibit specific pain receptors and inflammatory enzymes. Second, GingerT3 takes it to the next level by fermenting the non-oleoresin portions of the ginger Rhizome which increases their bioavailability and stability.

This allows it to have high concentrations of specific classes of compounds including Gingerols, Shagaols, Paradols, Gingerdiones and Terpenes

Details on the company website explain the production process for this new extract. It says that it is produced via supercritical CO2 extraction methods, which is then followed by a proprietary fermentation process.

"This allows it to have high concentrations of specific classes of compounds including Gingerols, Shagaols, Paradols, Gingerdiones and Terpenes."

These compounds inhibit three powerful targets in the body that can cause occasional joint discomfort and inflammation:

  • Vanilloid subtype 1 (TRPV1) - A pain-sensitive receptor in the body
  • 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) - Powerful inflammatory enzyme
  • Cyclo-oxygenase (COX-2) - Powerful inflammatory enzyme

The extract then goes through various quality checks to ensure purity.

Applications

Specnova says that GingerT3 is a fast-acting ingredient that can be formulated into products targeting mobility, joint health and healthy inflammatory response.

The pale-yellow powder is complexed and encapsulated and is therefore highly soluble and very stable.
