Melorun®, the recovery ally
Melorun® is a natural concentrate of melon juice. Naturally rich in superoxide dismutase (SOD), an antioxidant enzyme, it also contains a cocktail of all the nutrients found in melon.
Highly bioactive, Melorun® works by strengthening the body’s natural defences, which avoids oxidative stress and inflammation, two key factors in physical recovery.
Through this mechanism of action, Melorun® also prevents muscle and joint damage as well as physical and mental fatigue.
The result? Better sensations during exercise, increased resistance to fatigue and faster recovery!
An exceptional source of SOD
The melon variety behind Melorun® derives its originality from an incredible shelf life due to a concentration of superoxide dismutase (SOD), which is 5 to 10 times higher than that of a conventional variety. Today, the seeds of this unique non-GMO variety are our exclusive property.
Quality & traceability
Each year, they are entrusted to a small group of long-standing, selected producers. The seeds are planted in the open air according to a reasoned or organic production and the melons are harvested by hand at optimum maturity.
All our fields are located in the South of France, and in particular in the region of Cavaillon, renowned for its traditional know-how. From the seed to the final ingredient, Melorun® is fully traceable!
A patented, environmentally friendly process
Melorun® is manufactured using an environmentally-friendly and gentle process involving only mechanical steps without the use of solvents or additives. Successive filtration steps and rigorous temperature management allow a gradual concentration of the fruit’s antioxidant capacities.
Through an encapsulation step, our melon concentrate is protected and its bioactivity is guaranteed.
A range of coatings to meet all your needs
To meet the complex requirements of the sports nutrition market, Melorun® is available in a complete range of coatings to adapt to all your formulations:
– Food supplements (tablets, capsules, gummies, etc.)
– Instant drinks (powders, sachets, etc.)
– Functional foods (bars, chocolates, etc.)
– Cosmetics (creams, gels, etc.)
We also offer a vegan coating and an organic coating.
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) being an enzyme, is particularly sensitive to acidic pH, high temperatures and aqueous media. As it passes through the gastrointestinal tract, the enzyme is denatured. It follows the same path as other edible proteins and as such, cannot initiate its antioxidant effect.
To solve this problem, we have put in several protective coatings. By limiting the attack on SOD by digestive enzymes, they allow molecules to reach the intestine in sufficient quantity to take effect.
