November 19, 2009

Researchers at HealthSpan Solutions have been studying how to fortify the immune systems of older adults. Many seniors are especially at risk of developing more severe health conditions when they are weakened by colds and flus. HealthSpan recently introduced the BeneVia® Immune Protect nutrition drink which helps fortify the immune system with the amino acids arginine and citrulline plus Omega-3 DHA. Arginine has been cited in several recent studies as playing a key role in promoting optimal function of the immune system while citrulline and Omega-3 DHA enhance the function of arginine. The drink also includes antioxidant vitamins and a pre-biotic fiber. While developed with seniors in mind, when it comes to cold & flu season, everyone could use an extra boost to their immune system.

“When the weather gets cold, we all need to be especially mindful of our nutritional intake so that our immune systems are working at an optimal level when exposed to colds and flus,” said John Troup, CEO of HealthSpan, LLC, makers of the BeneVia® product line. “BeneVia® Immune Protect is like no other product on the market. Its proprietary blend of ingredients promotes immune health and overall health at the same time.”
