Nutragenesis Launches Maitake-Ashwagandha Immune Health Product

November 29, 2010

WellBody 365 combines the benefits of Maitake mushroom and Sensoril brand Ashwagandha.

Nutragenesis LLC (Brattleboro, VT) has introduced WellBody 365, a formulation of Maitake mushroom (Grifola frondosa) and Sensoril brand Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) for immune support.

Both ingredients present in WellBody 365 have demonstrated immune-support benefits in human clinical trials. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, patients supplementing with Sensoril experienced an average 69% reduction in perceived stress and 24% reduction in blood cortisol levels.

The product has been affirmed as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for dietary supplements and foods and beverages.

“We are very pleased to be introducing multifunctional WellBody 365 because, although resistance to stress is widely recognized as playing an important role in immune support, until now, the market has lacked immune support ingredients incorporating a stress reduction component,” said Suzanne McNeary, president of Nutragenesis LLC. “In addition, WellBody 365 features compelling, substantiated structure/function claims supported by human clinical testing in the areas of immune support and stress reduction, an important requirement in today’s regulatory environment.”
