Fermented wheat germ reaches the US
The first dietary supplement available in the US to contain the ingredient Avemar has been launched by American BioSciences, under the name Avé. Avemar, a compound made from wheat germ fermented by baker?s yeast, has undergone more than 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed journals. It was developed by Hungarian scientist Dr Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, a recipient of the 1937 Nobel Prize, who theorized that supplemental quantities of the naturally occurring compound di-methoxy-substituted benzoquinones would help regulate the processes of cellular metabolism and immune system regulation.?Once-a-day usage of Avé has been scientifically shown to do both, American BioSciences reports. These studies also reveal that Avemar promotes optimal natural killer cell targeting ability, and the coordinated response of macrophages, B-cells and T-cells.

P40p is a new standardised pomegranate extract with a minimum of 40 per cent punicosides, distributed by PL Thomas, an ingredients supplier in New Jersey. Punicosides are polyphenols belonging to the punicalagins group, and are the most powerful antioxidants found in pomegranates. P40p was developed in collaboration with Canary Islands-based research company Poliant SL. Studies indicate benefits from as little as 50mL (1.7oz) of pomegranate juice per day. When compared to the leading brand of juice in the US, this is equivalent to 45-50mg of P40p a day, PL Thomas expla-ins. P40p is the only kosher-certified pomegranate extract available. It is allergen free and does not contain the sugars found in juice.
