Pharmachem Announces Perluxan Vendorworks Seminar At SupplySide West

Pharmachem announced today it will host a Vendorworks Seminar at SupplySide West, entitled, “Perluxan: A Unique Botanical Anti-Inflammatory Agent from Hops,” on Friday, October 24th from 9:00 to 9:50 a.m. in Galileo 905.

Speaker Lorna Vanderhaeghe will discuss the compelling and significant findings of recent studies that have investigated a broad scope of potential health applications for extracts derived from hops flowers (Humulus lupulus). The presentation will provide an overview of hops extract fractions, with a special focus on the company's patented Perluxan anti-inflammatory ingredient. Perluxan contains an identified active complex with proven mechanisms of action to help alleviate minor pain and improve joint health.

“Formulators who are looking to take their typical glucosamine/chondroitin/ MSM combinations to the next level can find a solution in Perluxan,” suggests Gregory Bonfilio, brand manager for Pharmachem. “Not only has Perluxan been shown to work in two days, but there is also published research which supports the use of hops compounds to slow bone loss. This dual action, combined with its antioxidative capacity, makes Perluxan an excellent addition to joint health formulations.”

Pharmachem currently supplies the industry with a variety of hops products which, unlike most extracts derived from the plant, contain virtually no sleep-inducing or phytoestrogenic compounds. A growing range of specialty hops extracts from Pharmachem opens up tremendous opportunities for companies seeking efficacious, condition-specific supplements that can be used with confidence by consumers.
