Penoxal is a natural dietary supplement which positively influences the immune system without having any toxic or adverse effects. Due to its ability to activate the cellular apoptosis and its significant antioxidant impact, it helps to lower the risk of cancer. During the conventional cancer treatments Penoxal promotes better tolerance to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Excellent results show that it may be used to promote immunity as well as inflammation or viral and bacterial infections.
Penoxal's main component is a unique, patented active substance called Biocol, which is of natural origin and acquired through a complex biotechnological process followed by standardisation in compliance with the most stringent hygienic and technological regulations. It is derived from a microorganism called Talaromyces purpurogenus, an isolated strain of a microscopic fungus, which has a profound effect on the human body. Penoxal's excipient is vitamin C (ascorbic acid).

Biocol is a unique, patented, natural substance acquired from a complex biotechnological procedure and followed by standardisation in compliance with the most stringent hygienic and technological standards. It is a product of metabolism of the Talaromyces purpurogenus microorganism which shows a profound effect on the human body.
Talaromyces purpurogenus is a strain of genetically modified microscopic fungi, a natural microorganism which was discovered on the soil of the Ararat plain in Armenia during a screen testing in 1972. A long-term collaboration of scientists from medicine and biochemistry enabled to discover some unique microorganism characteristics. Its ability to produce red pigments and its original dynamics of biosynthesis and bioactivity was very different from other microorganisms being known until then. The more significant fact, however, is the final product of manufacture - the Biocol active substance which contains really precious bioactive agents that excel in their ability to positively influence the immune system. Further research and findings on this specific microorganism have revealed its potential to influence and inhibit the cancerous growth.
Vitamin C is the most well-known and widely used vitamin, which is essential for the maintenance of health. Its ability to sooth the symptoms of cold via stimulation of the white blood cells (lymphocytes) is well established. However, its positive effect has been demonstrated even in treatments of heart diseases, diabetes or asthma. High doses of vitamin C are also recommended for cancers as they significantly reduce the growth of cancerous cells. Vitamin C contributes greatly to the suppression of the oxidative stress, it promotes an adequate metabolism of fats, and a collagen production essential for connective tissues. It strengthens the walls of the blood vessels, aids the absorption of iron, which is important for blood formation, and it alleviates fatigue and exhaustion.
The synthetic form of vitamin C, ascorbic acid (E300), has been used in the food industry, as an antioxidant and a preservative.
The human body similarly to other animals is unable to synthesise this vitamin, therefore it should be consumed in food or food supplements. The recommended daily dose of vitamin C is 80 mg, and during illness it is needed even more so, thus the daily dose should be increased. This water-soluble vitamin is non-toxic to the body, so an overdose is out of question, and its unusable excess is eliminated in urine.
Maltodextrin is a compound of glucose molecules - simple sugar, which is being used as a source of energy, and in the food industry as an additive (filling). It absorbs more slowly than the glucose itself, and it is unable to rapidly elevate the blood sugar levels, therefore it is suitable for diabetics.
It is prepared through an enzymatic process, commonly of wheat starch, but in our products, we use cornstarch, which is naturally gluten free, and thus suitable for people with coeliac disease. Even though the maltodextrin is manufactured synthetically, a human body breaks it down to the natural, easy-to-process glucose.
Penoxal is very well-tolerated even in high doses and it is not addictive during a long-term administration. The product has no side effects and shows no antibiotic activity, it is entirely non-toxic and free of interaction with other medicinal products.
In rare cases, there may be diarrhoea. If this occurs, we recommend reducing the dose.
