The new and improved version of Wellberry now offers an ORAC value of 2895 umole TE/g.
Ingredient supplier NutraGenesis (Brattleboro, VT) has launched a reformulated version of its high-antioxidant superfruit ingredient Wellberry. Wellberry is a novel combination of Indian gooseberry, also known as amla, and a highly effective form of vitamin C, branded Transport C-Plus.
The new and improved version of Wellberry now offers an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value of 2895 umole TE/g, which the company says is more than twice the level offered by ascorbic acid and other standard vitamin C ingredients.
The company says that one of Wellberry’s components, Transport C-Plus, is a superior form of vitamin C because it contains a unique blend of buffered vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid, which alone also provides antioxidant protection. Transport C-Plus is also said to avoid the stomach upset and diarrhea that can be observed with other forms of vitamin C.
The company says that Wellberry is backed by scientifically validated human health benefits and substantiated structure-function claims in categories including antioxidant, antiging, immune support, and cellular protection.
