Drink Spotlight: The Juice Plus+ Company® Launches Omega Blend Offering Naturally Balanced Full Spectrum Omega Combination


MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, The Juice Plus+ Company announced the launch of the Juice Plus+ Omega Blend, a naturally balanced plant-based blend of oils containing omegas 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids in a convenient capsule form. As part of the global company's mission of inspiring healthy living around the world, the Omega Blend was developed to offer a proprietary combination of omegas from natural, whole food sources that support a broad array of benefits, such as heart, brain, joints, skin and eye health.

"Just as most people do not consume enough fruits and vegetables daily, they may also be lacking adequate amounts of high quality omega fatty acids," said Liza Pepple, Director of Product Innovation at The Juice Plus+ Company. "We strive to provide whole food based nutritional products that help consumers bridge the gaps in their diet and we responded to the needs of our customers with a full spectrum omega product that complements our Orchard, Garden and Vineyard blends."

The plant-based Omega Blend contains oil extracts from original algae sources instead of fish sources, delivering a pure and sustainable source of omegas, including all-important DHA, EPA and ALA omega fatty acids. Additionally, cold-pressed oils from five other seeds and berries, which omega fatty acids naturally occur, are used to curate the Omega Blend, including pomegranate seeds, sea buckthorn berries, raspberry seeds, tomato seeds and safflower seeds.

The Omega Blend is encapsulated in a vegetarian capsule made from tapioca, fused together with a state-of-the-art process that offers unparalleled protection against nutrient degradation. Containing 100% non-GMO ingredients, no artificial flavors, or preservatives, the Omega Blend is gluten-free and Kosher.

The Juice Plus+ Orchard, Garden and Vineyard Blends offer a variety of plant-based, whole food nutrition that helps bridge the gaps in your diet. The next best thing to fruits and vegetables, the blends provide dried juice powders from 30 different fruits, vegetables and grains in convenient capsule form and complement the new Omega Blend.

Supplement Spotlight: High DHA+EPA Omega-3 Supplement for Kids & Adults


Anlit helps kids to get more Omega-3 the fun and tasty way

Anlit, Ltd., launches a high DHA+EPA omega-3 supplement in a single, fish-shaped chew for children and adults. Anlit will present this supplement and other functional gummies and chews at Vitafoods Europe-FPE, May 9-11, 2017, in Geneva.

Innova Market Insights reports that the supplements category continues to dominate the cognitive health space, based on greater than 230% growth in new supplements carrying this claim during 2011 through 2015. Cognitive health new product development (NPD) targets all of life's different stages, and statistics show that the main segment for growth in this category is in products for babies and toddlers. In 2015, the share of launches with a brain health claim rose to 17% in Europe, and 23% globally. Cognitive health products often feature omega-3 fatty acids, but sometimes include iron. The fastest growing ingredients are omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins, when comparing 2011 and 2015 statistics.

Due to omega-3's organoleptic characteristics, there is a huge gap between omega-3 supplements and functional foods containing omega-3. Few products can close this "flavor gap." "Our new omega-3 chew supplement fills the gap by offering a tasty omega-3 supplement," explains Shai Karlinski, VP of sales and marketing for Anlit. "Many kids and adults dislike the unpleasant smell and taste of the traditional omega-3 fish oil supplements, such as soft gels, oil, syrups, etc. The new product offers a friendly and tasty alternative, with no unpleasant aftertaste."

Anlit's "Kidi Bites" omega-3 supplement is a fun, chocolate-flavoured, fish-shaped single-serving chew containing a high concentration of DHA and EPA (90mg EPA, 60mg DHA), for a total of 150mg omega-3 fatty acids per single unit. "Consumers want to eat candies without any guilt, and kids simply enjoy eating sweet treats that are not perceived as 'healthy'," says Karlinski. "Our mission is to provide kids and parents the complete package: a tasty treat with a beneficial health claim value."

Anlit's R&D team faced two main challenges in developing the new chew: fish oil taste and aroma, as well as creating a concentrated omega-3 product. They developed a unique delivery system that can mask the fishy taste and odor, and provide an excellent candy taste with a texture similar to milk chocolate. "We specialize in creating supplements focused on children's taste and texture preferences, while providing essential health benefits," notes Karlinski. "The delicious chewy matrix, with a chocolate-like flavour and texture, helps overcome children's reluctance to taking nutritional supplements."

The daily recommended dose of omega-3 bites is: one to two 5g fish-shaped chews. The product is produced under GMP, ISO, ISSC and kosher conditions. They're trans-fat free, made from simple, natural ingredients, and contain no preservatives or artificial colouring. Individual units are packed in sealed blister packs for complete safety and convenience.

Anlit Ltd. is a subsidiary of Maabarot Products, Israel, a public company traded on the TASE. The company continues to strengthen its competitive lead through cutting-edge advancements and the creation of high-quality products. Anlit is an innovative manufacturer of a broad range of dietary supplements developed for children and adult. Anlit products are gluten-free and nut-free. All products are GMP, FSSC, ISO 9001:2000 and HACCP compliant, as well as kosher and halal certified.

Drink Spotlight: Good Karma Unsweetened + Protein FlaxMilk



This Unsweetened Flaxmilk + Protein is on a whole new level with 5 grams of plant-based protein that will activate the tiny but mighty goodness in you—and with only 45 calories


Why FlaxMilk?
The Latin name for flax is Linum usitatissimum, which means “the most useful”, and we couldn’t agree more! Our flax milk has 1,200 mg of Omega-3s per serving, which is important because they are essential for human health and our bodies can’t make them on their own.



About the Company:

Everything you need to know about us, our products, and how we do business is summed up in those two words. For us, Good Karma™ means “positive outcomes that come from positive energies focused for good purpose.” Good Karma. That’s us. That’s how we came up with the idea for our Flaxmilks. We set out to make an alternative beverage that was more than just a substitute for milk-more than just a filler. Our aim was to create something that could stand on its own as a both a delicious, and nutritionally dense beverage, while offering the added benefits of being vegan and dairy-free so it could be enjoyed by everyone. Then we committed ourselves to using only the finest all-natural ingredients. Finally, we made certain all of our ingredients were harvested using sustainable agricultural methods because we respect the Earth and all who share it. The result is Good Karma™ Flaxmilks™. Prepare to smile. All are welcome. Read More

About the Company
Five centuries after the Aztec Warriors built an empire on the power of Chia, we learned about the benefits of Chia while reading the best-selling book Born to Run, about the Tarahumara Indians and their jaw-dropping long-distance runs. The Tarahumara, like the Aztecs before them, are Powered by Chia.

We looked into it further, and were floored by what we found. Turns out Chia is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.

We started eating Chia every day, on everything. Suddenly we were working out harder, lifting heavier, feeling stronger, and running farther, faster.

With that, Health Warrior was born.

Supplement Spotlight: Go Nutrition GN Bio-System

Our bio-system™ provides a convenient and simple way to organise your daily supplements for Wellness. Each tray contains a months-supply of pods, each pre-loaded with your daily dose to improve health and well-being. The tray contains four premium products: Ultiman™, Omega 3, Super Vitamin D3™ and Vitamin C, which are all designed to work synergistically to promote optimal health and well-being in the active person.

Tailored for optimal health and well-being
Provides four premium supplements in each pod
Convenient and easy to transport




What is the GN Bio-system™?


The GN Bio-system™ is a new and innovative way to manage your daily supplement regime. The tray comes with 28 individually dosed and sealed pods each containing your daily required supplements. All you need to do is remove a pod in the morning and consume or it can be easily transported if you are away from home.


Consistency is key for results. The GN Bio-system™ is designed to help you stick to your supplement program by making it simple. Each pod is clearly labelled to what day of the week it is to be consumed. It is therefore simple to remember to take your supplements each day and and as recognise when it’s time to reorder. The clever ‘pop out’ design of the pods make them easy to transport, meaning that the supplements can be taken every day at a place and time of your choosing.



Our bio-system™ also acts as your supplement diary. It’s really easy to see what’s been taken, what remains and it helps to make planning and purchasing much easier. This also makes it that much easier to chart your progress.
What’s in the bio-system for Wellness?



Ultiman™ is a high-strength multivitamin and mineral which combines 22 essential vitamins and minerals with five potent extracts. It is designed to protect the body from illness and fatigue and also contains minerals such as magnesium and zinc that are key in muscle protein synthesis. Athletes, and those of us who are very physically active will place a strain on our immune system and bodies every time we train. Ultiman™ contains powerful antioxidants to counteract the free radicals produced during exercise. Each pod contains two Ultiman™ tablets.


Omega 3

Omega 3 supplements have been growing in popularity for some time now. Backed by many peer reviewed research articles, Omega 3 supplements have been shown to have positive implications for heart and brain health, along with helping to reduce inflammation in the body. Each pod contains two softgels (1000mg each) provides 700mg of total Omega 3 fatty acids, 360mg of EPA, 240mg of DHA and 10mg of Vitamin E.


Super Vitamin D3™

Super Vitamin D3™ is a highly bioavailable, super strength supplement, providing 5000iu of this essential vitamin per serving. This vitamin is normally synthesised by your body when exposed to sunlight. However, in countries such as the UK where exposure to sunlight is limited due to weather patterns and working hours, we would recommend using a supplement to help maintain optimal health and performance. As Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, our Super Vitamin D3™ comes in an oil format to increase bioavailability to the body. Vitamin D3 plays a role in optimal immune function, bone health and hormone function, it also aids the uptake of minerals such as calcium and potassium by the body. Each pod contains one Vitamin D3 softgel.

Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids

Vitamin C is one of the most popular and widely used antioxidants around. As well as it’s antioxidative ability, Vitamin C plays a key role in energy production and immune function. Supplementing with this can be especially useful for athletes and individuals who are very physically active as their bodies will be under increased stress. Each pod contains one tablet which provides 1000mg of Vitamin C and 50mg of citrus bioflavonoids.





About the Company
I thought it would be more personal to write a few words introducing us, rather than using the faceless "about us" section found on most other websites.

Some of you may have known my previous business MYPROTEIN®, which I founded in 2004 and then later sold in 2011. Why is this relevant? Well, primarily I know what customers expect in terms of service, quality and innovation. Furthermore, as sports nutrition is fundamental for anyone wanting to improve their athletic performance, we aim to surpass expectations on all fronts.

The sports nutrition industry has undergone an incredible decade of development and growth. Unfortunately, it is also full of companies who want to make a "quick buck" who cut corners on their products and services to improve profits. Read More

In 1971, when Barbara started our company, the Bay Area was buzzing with young people full of a desire to express their love for all people. The world was changing daily as they created their own paths and sought to turn others onto new directions.

Barbara, then 17, found her calling in real food and opened a small natural bakery in Northern California. She had a simple plan—make wholesome food taste incredibly delicious.

About the company:
We were working for healthy food, healthy people and a healthy planet even before we became yogurt makers.

Back in 1983, our co-founders Samuel Kaymen and Gary Hirshberg were running a nonprofit organic farming school on a small New Hampshire farm. They were on a mission to help family farms survive, keep food and food production healthy, and help protect the environment. But the school needed funding.

So they put the farm’s seven cows to work (and all the helping hands they could wrangle) and began selling really good yogurt made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Samuel and Gary did most of the work back then. They milked the cows, made the yogurt, and made sales calls and even deliveries. Read More

What is Chia?
Chia is a summer annual herbaceous plant belonging to the Labiatae family. It grows from a seedling to develop lush green foliage before it produces long flowers which are either purple or, less commonly white. These flowers develop into seed pods to produce chia seeds. Today, chia is grown commercially not only in its original land Mexico, but as well in several Latin American countries and Australia.

Currently touted as the new superfood, chia is gaining a tremendous amount of attention in the press. It has even been praised by Dr. Oz for its health benefits. All of this attention naturally leads to the questions of exactly what chia is, where it comes from and what kind of benefits one can expect by using chia. Read More
