DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HempFusion Wellness Inc. (TSX:CBD.U) (“HempFusion” or the “Company”), a leading health and wellness CBD company utilizing the power of whole-food hemp nutrition, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Probulin Probiotics, LLC (“Probulin”), has launched its Total Care Immune probiotic product nationally with a number of major retailers including Sprouts Farmers Markets, Abby’s and Fresh Thyme Markets. Probulin’s Total Care Immune is expected to arrive on shelves nationwide in early February 2021, with online sales available now at Probulin.com.
"Consumers are turning increasingly more to probiotics to support their body's digestive health and immune function," commented Jason Mitchell, N.D., HempFusion’s Chief Executive Officer. "By combining two top dietary supplement ingredients, probiotics and elderberry, Probulin is creating the next generation of innovative probiotic products and, as evidenced by our immediate national rollout, retailers continue to display strong demand for these products,” continued Dr. Mitchell.
Probulin’s Total Care Immune probiotic combines the daily digestive and immune support of pre-, pro- and post-biotics with the immune-supporting power of elderberry. The product includes the following unique features:
- 100 mg of Eldermune™ (equivalent to 4,225 mg of whole elderberry);
- Scientifically formulated with 10 probiotic strains such as lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus reuteri, lactobacillus rhamnosus and bifidobacteria lactis;
- 20 Billion cfu†, including 8 Billion cfu† from fermented fruits and vegetables;
- Probiotic + Prebiotics +Postbiotics for TOTAL microbiome support**; and
- Proprietary MAKTrek® 3-D Probiotic Delivery System to ensure better survival.
"A major differentiator for HempFusion is the way our probiotic products are shipped. We always ship our probiotic products cold and protected while the scientifically validated MAKTrekⓇ 3-D Probiotic Delivery System is designed to protect and nourish the probiotics so that more can arrive alive in the gut. This results in a positive influence on the microbiome which is vital to overall gut health," continued Dr. Mitchell.
Probulin is recognized as one of the fastest-growing probiotics brands in the American Natural Products Industry, according to SPINs syndicated data. All of Probulin's products represent the next generation of probiotics for digestive health and immune support based entirely on cultured food and scientifically studied strains. Probulin products include the latest advancements in fermented fruits and vegetables, a prebiotic and the MAKTrek® 3-D Probiotic Delivery System, which helps ensure better survival of the probiotics. 70% of the human immune system resides in the stomach, making digestive and immune health intricately linked.
