Βranded Ιngredients

A revolution in food supplements

“Branded Ingredients” are natural ingredients produced by specialized manufacturers conforming to specific rigorous standards, applied over time, in order to ensure consistency in the quality and the efficacy of food supplements. Their production process follows optimized procedures, while raw materials are carefully inspected both quantitatively and qualitatively for the richness of their bioactive ingredients. Their benefits to health and their recommended daily allowance are supported both by in vitro and in vivo animal and clinical trials and their results are available to the consumer.

 

“Branded Ingredients” are supported by various clinical trials and are protected by one or more patents, thus, their production is allowed exclusively to the companies that exclusively produce them.

 

Nutramins collaborates with some of the biggest American branded-ingredient manufacturers and owns the exclusive right of use in Greece and Cyprus of the branded ingredients used in Nutramins food supplements.

Maitake Gold 404®

 

MaitakeGold 404® is simply the best Maitake extract in the world. In 1984, Dr. Hiroaki Nanba of Kobe Pharmaceutical University (Kobe, Japan) began work with his team on the development of an orally effective, immune enhancing extract derived from Maitake (Grifola frondosa) mushroom. This led to a critical discovery in the late 1990’s when they found inherent in the Maitake extract a substance or “float” that inhibits the immune enhancing properties of the extract. The Nanba team went on to develop a proprietary process to eliminate this substance from the extract, for which Dr. Nanba  was awarded a United States patent (5,854,404). Dr. Nanba has stated this proprietary extract is the most therapeutically concentrated Maitake extract available to date and is marketed exclusively under the tradename, MaitakeGold 404®.

 

The patent states:

“The main feature is to enhance the immunopotentiating activity by removing floating or adhering matter. Because the removal of the floating and adhering matter brings about enhancement in the immunopotentiating activity of the extract, the step of removing said matter is extremely important.”

 

Years of rigorous scientific research at some of the world’s most prestigious institutions has shown that MaitakeGold 404® is one of the most therapeutically bioactive Maitake extracts yet developed for enhanced immune support, even at relatively small doses. Researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Research Hospital found that MaitakeGold 404® enhanced several indicators of healthy immune function in a multi-phase, U.S. Government funded human clinical trial. MaitakeGold 404® was chosen exclusively for this project and was assigned an Investigational New Drug (IND) number in association with it. The results provided evidence that MaitakeGold 404® significantly enhanced immune support when taken orally. In particular, these studies showed that MaitakeGold 404® helps enhance a variety of immune cell components and cytokines at low dosages.
