January 6, 2011 — UAS Laboratories Inc. entered into an agreement with Valensa and Parry Nutraceuticals to launch Probiogreen, a new product combining DDS Probiotics with Parry organic spirulina.
The new product, Probiogreen, combines the health benefits of proven DDS probiotics and high quality spirulina. Tests with spirulina and lactobacillus showed that spirulina can stimulate the growth of lactobacillus.
Probiogreen will be available as a finished product or as a raw material that can be added to food products or other multiple-ingredient supplements. Possible applications include, supplement powders, smoothie mixes, beverages, and supplements. The recommended dosage of the product is 500 milligrams of DDS probiotics (5 billion CFU/gram) and 500 milligrams of spirulina. The dose is contained in ¼ teaspoon (1 gram). Many green formula products use up to 4 teaspoons of ingredients.
Parry spirulina has received GRAS status for its Arthrospira platensis, which is produced in accordance with cGMP and is certified organic by USDA NOP, Naturland-Germany, Ecocert-France, OCIA-IFOAM standards. Spirulina, a microscopic acquatic organism, has a long history of human consumption as nature’s most powerful “green food” with over 60 percent protein content.
It is used as a nutraceutical ingredient with a unique combination of phytonutrients like phycocyanin, carotenes, xanthophylls, GLA, essential fatty acids, vitamin B12, chlorophyll and minerals. The health benefits are widely researched and show promise in many age-related health conditions like age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, neurodegenerative disorders and cardiovascular disease.
