MEGAFOOD LAUNCHES ACUTE DEFENSE™ TO GO! SUPPLEMENT POWDER

MegaFood, a leading whole food supplement producer, today announced the launch of Acute Defense to Go!, an unsweetened whole food powder that includes the toughest team of super foods to boost the immune system’s response to stressors and support health.*

Made with produce sourced from U.S. family farms, including Uncle Matt’s Organic’s®** whole organic oranges, the Acute Defense formula is full of black elderberry, zinc, andrographis paniculata, vitamin C, whole-herb extracts and other antioxidant-rich super fruits. This powerful formula helps fuel healthy immune fighter cells and boosts the body’s defenses.*

“As with all of our formulations, we put a lot of thought into the creation of Acute Defense to Go!. Our goal was to offer an immune-supportive product that was pure, effective, convenient and made with time-honored herbs, such as elderberry and echinacea,” said Stacey Gillespie, Director of Product Marketing at MegaFood. “Being busy and always on the go sometimes makes it hard to stay healthy. With Acute Defense, we’ve made it easy to get the right vitamins, minerals and super foods that can help kick-start and sustain a healthy immune system when you need it the most.”*

Individual Acute Defense packets should be mixed and taken with water, which promotes hydration without the added sugar or sweeteners used in other powder or liquid immune vitamin supplements. Each portable packet includes 250 mg of vitamin C plus zinc, which are immune-supportive nutrients,* as well as 500 mg of whole black elderberry, an herb well known to work best during the early stages of seasonal immune challenges.*

Due to our unique Slo-Food Process™, which includes one of the most gentle food drying methods today, we are able to deliver a superior FoodState® Black Elderberry powder, which has retained all of the deeply pigmented compounds that impart the immune-supportive benefits of this botanical.*

Designed for on-the-go use, Acute Defense is conveniently packaged in a single serving packet, and can be taken up to three times per day.

MegaFood has been crafting whole-food supplements with farm fresh, local foods for more than 40 years, and is committed to sourcing ingredients from family-owned farms throughout the United States and Canada to deliver the most wholesome nutrition. Acute Defense to Go! is available in select natural foods stores beginning September 15, 2014.
