Add immunity to your sports nutrition products with Nutramunity™ Beta-Glucan.

Sports nutrition products – once reserved for professional athletes and hard-core workout enthusiasts – are now attracting a wider audience of health-conscious consumers. According to Euromonitor International, the global sports nutrition market was valued at $10 billion in the end of 2014. Consumers are looking for nutrition sources that accommodate their needs, including immune health support.

A well-balanced immune system is the key to better performance

A well-functioning immune system is crucial for athletic performance as well as for an active lifestyle. Yet, exercise in itself has impact on the immune function. Research has shown that intensive exercise suppress the immune system, compromising the body’s ability to defend itself.

Nutramunity™ helps support healthy immune function, so athletes and recreational users can recover faster from exercise stress*. Studies have demonstrated the oral intake of beta-1,3/1,6-glucan:

  • Improves immune function*
  • Promotes healthy inflammatory response*
  • Supports mucosal immunity and promotes respiratory health*

A versatile immune health ingredient

Nutramunity™ is suitable for application in a variety of sports nutrition product formats:

  • Dietary supplements: hardgel capsules, stick packs and combination formulations
  • Food & beverages: energy/endurance bars, balanced nutrition bars and protein bars; sports & functional drinks, powdered drinks

Nutramunity™ is easy to incorporate into new and existing products

The beta-1,3/1,6-glucan molecule is stable and robust – it does not disintegrate with time, nor does it react or interfere with other ingredients. Since it does not turn rancid, no preservatives are needed. Yeast beta glucan is highly bioactive; hence, small amounts are sufficient. These properties make incorporation of the ingredient into existing products easy, as it does not require major changes in the current formula.
