Nutralliance/21st Century Vitamins Feed the Troops

For the seventh consecutive year Nutralliance and 21st Century hosted the 5th Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment and their families to a Texas style barbeque at the Camp Pendleton base. The annual tradition is the inspiration of Kevin Wirkus of Country Life Vitamins who served in this Battalion from 1991-1995 as a way to give back to his fellow Marines. It was our pleasure to be part of the 5K Turkey Trot and family gathering of over 425 troops and family members. We can’t do enough for these brave and highly skilled service men and women.

Nutralliance Announces GRAS Approval of Ildong Biosciences Probiotics

(YORBA LINDA, CA) - Ana Maria Cuentas, Director of Probiotics for Nutralliance, has announced that its line of probiotics, manufactured by Ildong Biosciences (exclusively represented by Nutralliance), has obtained self-affirmed GRAS status, now known as independent conclusion of GRAS.

The GRAS conclusion covers strains in Ildong’s 11 lactic acid-producing species: Bacillus coagulans, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei/paracasei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus johnsonii, Lactobacillus reuteri, Lactococcus lactis, and Streptococcus thermophilus.

GRAS conclusion will expand the use capabilities for innovating in the continually expanding probiotic product market. “The probiotics area has gotten traction and is growing as new scientific data flourishes and innovation in terms of benefits and applications are discovered,” Cuentas commented. “The strains have gone through stringent screening processes to ensure their safety and efficacy, and we strive to provide, not a replacement product, but one that is able to work synergistically with existing or new formulations.”

This new probiotic line is distinguished by its patented quadruple-coating technology which protects the strains’ structure and integrity, thus allowing them to arrive alive and intact to the destination in the lower GI tract. The four-layer coating system consists of guar gum, hyaluronic acid, maltodextrin and a soy protein isolate, all non-GMO. Cuentas explained that this unique layer provides superlative protection against moisture, humidity, air, gastric acid, bile salts and heat.

Cuentas added that all Ildong Bioscience strains are whole genome sequenced, Kosher and non-GMO and that there is potential to include additional lactic acid bacterial strains from Ildong’s portfolio soon. Nonetheless, Nutralliance and Ildong continue to expand their research including in vitro, in vivo and human clinical studies to further understand the benefits of the probiotics and the coating beyond enhanced survival and stability.

Nutralliance Announces Distributor Agreement with Globionic: Launches Lavitol® DHQ in North America

YORBA LINDA, CA –Nutralliance has signed an exclusive sales and distribution agreement with Globionic, a supplier that specializes in nutraceutical ingredients from Eastern Europe, announced Nutralliance CEO Brian Salerno.

Globionic obtained the exclusive sales rights for Lavitol® dihydroquercetin, a distinctive larch ingredient from Ametis Corp. based in Siberia, Russia. Lavitol DHQ is the first ingredient from the new alliance to be marketed exclusively in North America by Nutralliance.

Globionic was formed to locate unique and wild-sourced ingredients from Eastern Europe companies to bring their products to the USA or expand their business if there is already a presence here, according to Globionic president and CEO Bill Knudson. “There is an abundance of unique resources specific to this region. Many ingredient suppliers there, however, tend to lack the understanding of how to successfully market their researched ingredients in the US. There are numerous cultural, language, transportation and financing hurdles that hinder their expansion in North America, and Globionic was created to bridge those issues,” he explains.

Lavitol® dihydroquercetin (DHQ), obtained from the Dahurian Larch (Larix gmelinii ) is distinctive in chemical profile and in biological actions from arabinogalactan, the common extract of larch trees. Lavitol DHQ is known to be one of nature's more powerful antioxidants and helps recycle vitamin C while limiting its oxidation. Lavitol DHQ is also scientifically shown to support cardiovascular, respiratory immune, eye/vision, skin, liver and endocrine health.

Lavitol DHQ also has a potent sustainability story – it is extracted via a patented technology from larch tree stumps left behind from wood industry harvesting. Lavitol is produced year-round with an annual production of 13 tons of finished material in a state-of-the-art, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 22000-2005, and HACCP-compliant facility.

“Lavitol DHQ will provide brands with a heavily researched and unique ingredient for a wide range of applications and consumer needs,” says Salerno. “And this is just one of many similar quality ingredients to come from Globionic, a company that itself has a unique position in the supply-side arena.”

Knudson comments, “Out of the many distributors out there in this arena, Nutralliance was selected to be our exclusive distribution partner because of its stellar reputation in the industry for transparency, diligence, follow-through, testing and shipping expertise. All of which align with Globionic’s core principles that we have promised to our partners."

Nutralliance, KÄÄPÄ Biotech enter sales, distribution agreement for Nordic Mushrooms extracts

Nutralliance (Yorba Linda, CA) signed an exclusive sales and distribution agreement with Finland-based KÄÄPÄ Biotech Ltd. for its Nordic Mushrooms wholesale mushroom extract product line, which includes Finnish-grown, organic mushrooms: chaga (Inonotus obliquus), reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), lion’s mane (Hericum erinaceus), shiitake (Lentinula edodes) and cordyceps (Cordyceps militaris).

“There is an increased demand for high-quality medicinal mushroom products in the North American market area,” said Eric Puro, CEO of KÄÄPÄ Biotech, in a press release. “The origin of the ingredients used in the food supplement industry is getting more important all the time. Our products are 100% of Finnish origin, from the FSC-certified Finnish sawdust substrate, to growing of mushrooms as well as processing and manufacturing of the mushroom extracts. We have full traceability and transparency in our process from spore to shipment. Therefore, we can guarantee premium quality mushroom extracts to the market.”

KÄÄPÄ Biotech invested in ultrasonic assisted extraction technology that utilizes a combination of hot water and alcohol extraction to ensure the extraction of the desired bioactive compounds in each mushroom. The Nordic Mushrooms product line includes mushroom extract powders and liquid extracts.

“The fungi kingdom and especially members of the Basidiomycota phylum (mushrooms) hold tremendous potential for natural, safe, and effective products that support a wide variety of health concerns as well as general well-being,” said Brian Salerno, CEO of Nutralliance. “To adequately fulfill modern North American consumers’ desires for superior quality in efficacy, safety, and traceability as well as sustainability, we wanted to ensure our mycological expert source was able to put checkmarks in all those columns. KÄÄPÄ Biotech is that resource.”
