Recently, I one of my friend asked me if I have heard of a new health and wellness product call Liveon by Wellous Malaysia.
I told her no, I have not but I am keen to find out.
Reason being, I am a health freak and I love to learn about new healthcare product in the market.
That is the reason I wrote this article. It is to document my reading and research on Liveon.
As a disclaimer, I am not a doctor nor am I a nutritionist. I am just an online Mompreneur in the health and wellness niche.
Therefore, any new product or supplement in the health niche will spark my interest.

Liveon product purchase
Is it possible to write a Wellous Liveon review without actually trying the product?
Of course it not possible!
That is why before I wrote this product review, I actually bought 2 boxes of Liveon from one of Wellous agent online.
Below are some of my Liveon order unboxing pictures.
I received my Liveon order from one of Wellous agent. Everything is in order. The product came in a very nice packaging.
Each of the box has 16x Liveon sachets. Each sachet is 20 ml.
Liveon individual sachet up close. It is easy to carry and easy to consume. All I have to do is cut the top of the sachet and drink the content.
Solving the problem of AGEs
What is the health issue that Liveon is trying to solve?
Wellous is selling Liveon as a solution to AGEs or advanced glycation end products.
What is AGEs?
Many people probably do know what are AGEs. Therefore, in this section, I will compile my finding on advanced glycation end products.
According to www.healthline.com,
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are harmful compounds that are formed when protein or fat combine with sugar in the bloodstream. This process is called glycation.
The 2 key components here are protein and sugar.
Health issue occurs when we have too much or excess sugar in our body.
How are AGEs formed?
The food we eat everyday will be converted into sugar, the source of energy that allows us to carry out our daily activities.
When we have excess and unused sugar in our body, the sugar drifts freely and binds to the protein inside our body.
This process is known as “glycation“.
Typical sugars that participate in glycation are glucose, fructose, and their derivatives.
The subject of advanced glycation end products undoubtedly seems difficult to grasp.
Luckily I found a short 10 minutes video on YouTube that the speaker has simplified.

Harmful effects of AGEs
Probably you’ve guessed it, AGEs are really bad for our body.
What are the negative effects of AGEs on our body?
According to www.healthline.com:
High level of AGEs in our body are associated with the majority of chronic diseases. These diseases include:
- Heart disease
- Liver disease
- Kidney failure
- High blood pressure
- And many more
Our body actually has natural ways of getting rid of harmful AGE compounds.
However, problems happen when we consume too many AGEs in our daily diet.
Unfortunately, a typical Malaysian diet, doesn’t matter if you are Malay, Chinese or Indian, is full of AGEs due to the way the dishes are cooked and prepared.
AGEs related diseases start to occur when the compounds are accumulating faster than our body can get rid of them.
That is where Liveon product from Wellous comes into the picture.
It promises to help us to manage AGEs in our body.
Liveon key ingredients
Liveon is made up of 4 key antioxidant ingredients. The ingredients are:
- Enzogenol® pine bark extract
- Bionov Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)
- Sirtmax black turmeric extract
- Puredia Sea Buckthorn Extract
In the following section, I will do a deep dive into the individual key ingredients of Liveon.
The first key ingredients is Enzogenol® pine bark extract.
Enzogenol is a registered product brand of Enzo Nutraceuticals Ltd.
The company is the exclusive producer and supplier of New Zealand Pinus radiata bark extract.
What exactly is Enzogenol?
Enzogenol is a clinically researched, high antioxidant, nutraceutical ingredient derived 100% from the pristine and sustainable pine forests of New Zealand.
It is a stable free flowing powder and has been used extensively for many years to support numerous health applications in dietary supplements, food, beverage, and cosmetic solutions.

The second key ingredient is Bionov Superoxide Dismutase (SOD).
Bionov is France based company and is the world’s largest producer of Superoxide Dismutase or SOD.
What exactly is Superoxide Dismutase?
The story behind the discovery of SOD is quite interesting.
Back in 1989, a unique non-GMO cantaloupe melon variety (Cucumis melo L.) has been discovered.
What’s special about this variety of cantaloup melon is it’s long shelf life compared to the standard melon.
Click on the picture above to see a comparison on the shelf life of a normal cantaloup melon compared to a Cucumis melo L. variety.
What is causing the Cucumis melo L. variety melon to stay fresh longer compared to the other cantaloup melon?
Apparently, it took 10 years of research to solve this mystery.
It was discovered that the Cucumis melo L. variety has a 5 to 10 times higher content of an essential antioxidant enzyme than the other melons.
That enzyme is Superoxide Dismutase (SOD).
The antioxidant properties of SOD provide protection against oxidation, which explain why these melons have an impressive shelf life compared to the classical varieties melons.
What are the health benefits of Superoxide Dismutase?
From my reading, it seems SOD provides numerous beneficial effects in the area of:
- Joint health
- Male fertility recovery
- Eye health
- Well being
- Physical recovery
- Physical pain relief
- Cellulite reduction
- UV Protection
- Acne reduction
The third key ingredient of Liveon is Sirtmax black turmeric extract.
This particular ingredient was sourced from Tokiwa Phytochemical Co. Ltd.
Tokiwa Phytochemical is a company with its Head Office based in Kinoko, Sakura-shi, Chiba, Japan.
Sirtmax is a patented product ingredient of Tokiwa Phytochemical.
What is the uniqueness of the Sirtmax black turmeric extract?
Black turmeric or Kaempferia parviflora is a plant that belongs to the ginger family.
It is grown locally in South East Asian countries such as Thailand and Laos.
Black turmeric has long been used as a folk medicine. It is beneficial in the area such as:
- Antioxidant action
- Vasodilator action
- Antiallergic action
- Nutritional enhancement
- Sexual vigor enhancement
- Physical recovery
- Circulatory system improvement
- Digestive system improvement
What I found amazing about Sirtmax black turmeric extract its antioxidant effect is 15 times stronger than resveratrol.
Resveratrol is a plant compound that acts like an antioxidant. The top food sources include red wine, grapes, some berries and peanuts.
If you’ve read about the benefits of drinking red wine, it is due to the resveratrol compound in it.
The fourth key ingredient is Puredia Sea Buckthorn Extract.
The ingredient was sourced from the company Puredia, the world’s largest organic sea buckthorn manufacturer.
Puredia has its sales offices in United States of America (USA), European Union (EU) and also Asia.
It’s manufacturing facility is located at Chengbei District, Xining City, Qinghai Province, China.
