Stem & Root Daily Immunity Named Immune Support “Product of the Year” at NutraIngredients-USA Annual Industry Awards

WHIPPANY, N.J.--()--Stem & Root Daily Immunity was named “Product of the Year” in the immune support category at the prestigious NutraIngredients-USA Awards announced earlier this month.

Stem & Root believes that the power of nature is best unlocked when proven by science. That’s why Stem & Root’s latest launch of a Daily Immunity supplement combines pure and potent ingredients from nature, including a proprietary carrot fiber (BeniCaros) and zinc, with 3 ingredient clinical trials tying these key ingredients to healthy immune function.*

“We’re honored to be recognized by our industry for a key product in our portfolio,” said Kyle Garner, VP/General Manager, Naturals and Consumer Health Accelerator, Bayer Consumer Health. Immunity has risen to the top for many consumers as they prioritize choices about their health, and to have our new product and ingredient combination receive this award is a meaningful milestone.”

BeniCaros is a patented bioactive polysaccharide (fiber) known as cRG-I (rhamnogalacturonan-I) derived from upcycled carrot pomace. It trains the immune system to be fit year-round through a unique dual mode of action that both prepares innate immune cells and stimulates beneficial gut microorganisms that supports immune responses. This ingredient also won an award for Nutrition Research Project to showcase how strong the product is – a double winner!

“Congratulations to Stem and Root for receiving this prestigious honor,” said Erik Dam, CEO of NutriLeads, the manufacturer of BeniCaros, the ingredient in Stem & Root’s Daily Immunity dietary supplement product. “The powerful combination of immune cell training and prebiotic properties of BeniCaros helps Stem & Root deliver strong immune health benefits to consumers.”
