DENVER, March 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewAge Beverages Corporation (NBEV), the Colorado-based healthy products company dedicated to inspiring and educating the planet to “live healthy”, today announced the expansion of and continued donations of its immune health products in China and other key countries.
- Donation of 2.9 million RMB of Tahitian Noni® Juice to hospitals throughout the PRC
- Expansion of our product called ‘Nhanced™ Cell Defense, a dietary supplement marketed in e-commerce channels in the US, including accelerated donation efforts
Tahitian Noni® Juice, is NewAge’s top-selling nutritional supplement product around the world, including in China with over $50 million USD in annual sales. Noni has been used by Polynesians for centuries for traditional remedies and is one of Tahiti’s largest exports. NewAge is the largest global marketer of noni, with over $7 billion in cumulative sales of Tahitian Noni® Juice worldwide. The noni fruit from Tahiti is one of the world’s richest sources of antioxidants.
A study conducted by Tianjin Medical University demonstrated that consumption of Tahitian Noni Juice promoted an 18% decrease in oxidative stress in cells, a 30% increase in NK cell activity, and a 32% increase in Interleukin-2. For information on the clinical trial results, see https://www.ixueshu.com/document/47a66cacfa6f2d1fb7e0501c09e5145f318947a18e7f9386.html.
NewAge has been donating Tahitian Noni® Juice to healthcare providers and front-line medical workers in China, and so far has donated nearly 3 million RMB of Tahitian Noni® Juice. Additional information on Human Intervention Studies on Tahitian Noni® Juice can be found on the NIH website https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29641454.
In addition to donations of Tahitian Noni® Juice, NewAge is also evaluating options to ramp up production of its ‘Nhanced™ Cell Defense product, and recently began e-commerce and Amazon sales beyond its direct selling network to make the product more broadly available. NewAge has been reaching out to nursing homes, governments and other groups to increase donations, and has provided free product to employees throughout the Company.
‘Nhanced™ Cell Defense is an immune-system supplement. The patented formulation supports multiple mechanisms of action and differs substantially from routine supplements in that it contains both dietary and endogenous antioxidants as well as efficacious vitamins, minerals, co-factors, amino acids and phytonutrients that have been shown to be beneficial in laboratory and human studies. ‘Nhanced™ Cell Defense’s efficacy was documented in a six-month, prospective clinical trial. More information on lymphocytes can be found on the National Center for Biotechnology website at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK26921/.
Brent Willis, CEO of NewAge commented, “We believe our products support baseline health and help maintain a healthy immune system, substantiated by patents, research studies, and human trials. Our products are not intended to treat any specific condition or illness, but we believe the science supports their benefit in maintaining a healthy immune system. We therefore believe it is appropriate, moreover, we believe it is our responsibility to increase the awareness of the science and availability of these products for consumers worldwide.”
