4/25/2011 – Hormel Health Labs, a division of Diamond Crystal Brandshas expanded its line of HealthyShot Wellness Products to include several powdered beverages containing Wellmune WGP, the natural immune health ingredient from Biothera.
The products combine the convenience of powdered beverages and the clinically proven immune support of Wellmune WGP. Available in three flavors: Lemonade, Pomegranate-Cherry and Raspberry- Green Tea, they are convenient, great tasting and provide a strong immune system message.
“As a natural, GRAS ingredient supported by unmatched clinical research, Wellmune WGP was the perfect choice,” said Kim Little, Marketing Manager, Diamond Crystal Brands. “Our products containing Wellmune WGP are a great complement to our line which addresses other wellness priorities.”
Wellmune WGP is a natural immune health ingredient for foods, beverages and supplements. Derived from a proprietary strain of yeast, a large body of peer-reviewed clinical research demonstrates that Wellmune WGP helps mobilize billions of innate immune cells that are part of the body’s natural defenses. Wellmune helps these cells do their jobs effectively without over stimulating the immune system, which can be harmful to long-term health.
“We are pleased to partner with Hormel Health Labs and Diamond Crystal Brands to make Wellmune WGP available to the many people served by the institutional food service marketplace,” said Rich Mueller, chief executive officer of Biothera, the manufacturer of Wellmune WGP.
