Biovico becomes a leader of intraarticular hyaluronic acids

Biovico company received a grant for the development of hyaluronic acid with added value under the program “szybka ścieżka” NCBR.

The aim of the project is to develop a new generation proprietary product, and the entirety of works will be carried out on the premises of our own laboratory located in the Pomeranian Science and Technology Park in Gdynia. Modern laboratory together with the specialized scientific staff enable self-realization of the entire process of creating a new product.

Today Biovico is the undisputed leader in intraarticular hyaluronic acids in Poland. Moreover, the development of a new product opens even wider opportunities for the company in foreign markets.

The main product from the company portfolio – Biolevox HA – supplies over 50% of the Polish market and is successfully distributed to foreign markets. Last year alone, the product developed better than the whole market of intraarticular hyaluronic acids in Poland. The sales dynamics show that our Biolevox Ha increased by 55%, while the entire market increased by 21%.

When we started distributing our product in 2012 the market share was only 0.2%. The past 4 years have shown that unmatched quality of the preparation convinced both physicians and patients, gaining recognition of over 50% of the current intraarticular hyaluronic acid market in Poland.

The funding received for the development of hyaluronic acid and the development of a new generation product is important for Biovico, as its primary goal and mission translate into providing patients with the highest quality medical devices and innovative solutions for every stage of orthopedic and rheumatic diseases.

Innovative surgical solutions in the field of orthopaedics

Orthopaedic treatment raises many questions and doubts among patients and doctors. Therefore, our next goal is to develop orthopaedics professionally. Close cooperation with the Swiss company Mathys European Orthopaedics allowed us to introduce innovative surgical solutions in the field of orthopaedics into Biovico’s offer.

The human musculoskeletal system needs precise and high-quality actions in the field of orthopaedics. Each implementation of the artificial joint requires an individual approach that is adjusted to the human anatomy. Proper diagnosis and treatment of defects, deformations and dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system allows patients to enjoy continuous comfortableness. Together with Mathys European Orthopaedics, we would like to focus on modernising orthopaedics in Poland, increasing the standard and the quality of the research.

Mathys European Orthopaedics has been operating since 1946. It is the leader in the production of endoprostheses, the bone graft substitutes and products used for the cruciate ligaments reconstructions. It seeks to ensure that the products become the quality standard all over the world. Mathys European Orthopaedics is one of the few companies which has such a long tradition as well as significant experience in the field of orthopaedics. In 1963, the specialists from Mathys European Orthopaedics in cooperation with professor Maurice E. Muller have conducted the first successful construction of hip stem. It led to the world’s first implantation of a hip prosthesis in 1972. Subsequently, in 2012, Mathys European Orthopaedics has extended its works on orthopaedics, especially regarding the needs of athletes.

The development of the orthopaedics in close cooperation with doctors and patients is essential for us. The only way to ease the pain and restore the continuous comfortableness is by specially developed preparations of procedure packs. Our priority is the easy rehabilitation process, minimization of the potential issues and creating ideal conditions for biological, which means natural, self-healing.

Elderberry: a workout partner with triple benefits

Looking for a great workout partner who can get you through bouts of low energy, help you recover faster and keep you healthy? Elderberry’s got you covered. Concentrated elderberry extract has long been known for its immune-boosting, cold and flu-fighting abilities — an athlete’s best ally for keeping healthy all season.

But recent studies show that elderberry has even more benefits for athletes. Rich in anti-oxidants and magnesium, elderberry can enhance physical performance, shorten recovery time and combat cell damage and aging. Furthermore, it’s been shown to possess antimicrobial properties that protect athletes from illness.

Protection from free radicals

Take a dose of elderberry before and after a workout for its antioxidant benefits, which combat the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals rob healthy cells of electrons, raiding and destabilizing them in the process. Research has found a link between exercise and the increased production of these harmful radicals: during heightened physical activity, the body’s intake of oxygen can increase by as much as 1,500 per cent, leading to a proportional increase in the production of free radicals. In addition, the inflammation created by muscle damage (which causes muscle soreness after a workout), also creates free radicals, further delaying recovery.

Antioxidants donate electrons to free radicals, thereby stopping the radicals from stealing these electrons from other cell components. The antioxidants, however, remain stable even after losing an electron — which is one reason they’re so important to our overall health. By reducing the level of free radicals in the body, they can help reduce post-exercise muscle damage and soreness, and enable athletes to train more often, increase endurance and gain competitive edge. Elderberry’s specific antioxidant power comes from the presence of anthocyanins — the plant compounds that give the berry its dark pigmentation. A 2014 study shows that elderberry is also a superior source of antioxidants compared to other fruit. The antioxidants derived from elderberry were shown to be 10.7 per cent more effective than black chokeberry as scavengers of free radicals.

Rich in magnesium

Elderberry is also high in magnesium, a vital mineral that the body counts on for no less than 300 biochemical reactions. And the Haschberg variety of the European black elderberry — of which the Italian company Iprona AG is the largest processor worldwide — is known for a particularly high concentration.

Magnesium assists with nerve and muscle function, helps keep the immune system working, helps maintain a uniform heartbeat, and contributes to bone strength. It also helps regulate blood glucose levels and aids in the production of energy and protein. And combining magnesium with antioxidants may also result in less build-up of lactic acid, further shortening recovery time after a workout or major physical effort.

Iprona´s unique membrane ultra-filtration technology enriches the polyphenols and retains the magnesium, vitamins and trace elements present in the fresh elderberry fruit. Conventional chemical extraction processes only concentrate single compounds — at the expense of many other healthy nutrients.

Respiratory health

Breathing easy is always a factor in athletic performance. Another study, conducted in Australia, indicated that just a 600 mg-900 mg dose of a membrane filtered elderberry formula (the Haschberg variety) significantly reduced both the length and severity of colds. Those who took part in the study also experienced a benefit to their overall health due to the anti-oxidative and antimicrobial potency of this particular strain of elderberry, coupled with the high magnesium content in the extract.

Whether reducing soreness and muscle damage or staying flu-free, elderberry is a go-to health booster for any athlete. It’s just one of the many natural substances rich health- and strength-giving nutrients. Available in fresh or powdered forms, it can be ingested as a lozenge or mixed into drinks or yogurt. And as science is showing us, this traditional ingredient, long known for its health benefits, is ever better for us — and for enabling us to handle the rigors of our modern lives — than we could have known.
