Avivagen’s proprietary and patented technology derives from its discovery that carotenoid oxidation produces oxygen copolymer products that have beneficial immunological properties. Avivagen’s commercial-stage application of its inventions is fully oxidized beta-carotene (“OxBC”), OxC-beta™ Technology (“OxC-beta”).

Avivagen has discovered that OxC-beta™ promotes an animal’s immune system to maintain and enhance health by supporting immune function and usefully reducing excess inflammation. Avivagen is developing OxC-beta™ to replace the antibiotics used for disease prevention and growth promotion in livestock feeds, to enhance quality of life of companion animals and to help maintain optimal health in humans. Avivagen’s commercial products are OxC-beta™ Livestock, Vivamune™ Vital Health3 Chews, and Oximunol™ Chewable Tablets.


OxC-beta™ Livestock

There is growing pressure on food producers to maintain high production and low costs, while continuing to bring us great tasting, high quality food. Historically, the use of antibiotics at low doses to help optimize the growth of food animals has helped to achieve this aim.

Avivagen has developed a proprietary, naturally-derived product, OxC-beta™, which has been clinically proven to help animals grow healthier, faster, with comparable feed rations, reducing the single-largest cost in rearing food animals.

We are currently seeking partners who are interested in commercializing this exciting opportunity for the benefit of producers and consumers alike!

Carotenoid Oxidation Products

It is now known that ß-carotene copolymers exhibit immunological activity, including priming innate immune function and limiting inflammatory processes. Avivagen’s commercial products are based on these compounds and are used, for example, to promote and maintain health in companion animals, and are anticipated to serve as replacements for routine use of antibiotics used for maintaining health in livestock. A recent discovery has led to the exciting revelation that various foods contain carotenoid copolymers with anticipated non-vitamin A immunological activities that have important health implications.

Avivagen is happy to now offer Fully Oxidized Beta-Carotene. This compound is now available for sale through Chemaphor Chemical Services, a division of Avivagen, along with some additional markers used for its analysis.

Avivagen welcomes enquiries from parties interested in becoming international marketing and distribution partners for its
products. Please direct such enquiries to the attention of the CEO in the Contact Us section of our website or telephone
