First Beverage with Wellmune Debuts in European Union
Wellmune®, the immune health ingredient, is now available for the first time in a beverage product in the European Union. This latest innovation in functional beverages with Wellmune follows the 2011 European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies positive scientific opinion on Wellmune® as a novel food.
A new line of Alibi Pretox functional beverages from Solution Sciences Ltd. of London, will include Wellmune for immune support, along with Vitamin K for bone and heart health. The Alibi Pretox beverages are sparkling health drinks that support a proactive approach to daily health by preparing and protecting the body with enhanced levels of nutrition.
“Wellmune’s everyday immune support benefits align well with Alibi’s focus on supporting the body’s natural ability to stay well,” said Richard Mueller, CEO of the Wellmune brand. “This product is a great example of innovation in the functional beverage category using ingredients backed by sound science.”
Wellmune WGP is clinically proven to safely prime the immune system to keep the body healthy. Numerous peer-reviewed studies demonstrate that Wellmune WGP mobilizes billions of innate immune cells that are part of the body’s natural defenses without over stimulating the immune system.
Wellmune WGP is the only yeast-derived beta glucan to receive the novel food designation and be permitted for use in foods, beverages and supplements in Europe.
