Date:11/13/2009

This second published independent clinical study on Vemma, its physician formulated liquid supplement, has been published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (Volume 57, Number 19, October 14, 2009). The clinical study entitled, “Bioavailability and Antioxidant Effects of a Xanthone-Rich Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) Product in Humans” found that Vemma is highly bioavailable, showing an increase in vitamins and antioxidants in the blood.*

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB)November 13, 2009 -- Vemma Nutrition Company announced today that its second independent clinical study on Vemma, its physician formulated liquid supplement, has been published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (Volume 57, Number 19, October 14, 2009). The clinical study entitled, “Bioavailability and Antioxidant Effects of a Xanthone-Rich Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) Product in Humans” found that Vemma is highly bioavailable, showing an increase in vitamins and antioxidants in the blood.*

Clinical studies are not mandated for wellness companies, yet Vemma, being confident in putting its flagship nutritional formula to the test, chose to fund two, independent clinical studies. The Vemma formula contains the antioxidant-rich, whole fruit mangosteen pericarp (rind) with a combination of full spectrum vitamins, plant-sourced minerals, glyconutrient-rich aloe vera and organic green tea. Two ounces, once a day is the recommended dosage of Vemma to help people build a solid nutritional foundation. BK Boreyko, President and CEO of Vemma, commented, “To be published in both the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry and The Journal of Medicinal Food sets Vemma apart from the competition with an impressive scientific portfolio. These results give validation to consumers and our Brand Partners that Vemma offers possible protective effects through its highly bioavailable and nutritious delivery system.*”

Dr. Boxin Ou from the independent Brunswick Laboratories led the double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to determine the overall bioavailability (proportion which is absorbed and utilized by the body) and antioxidant effects of the Vemma formula in the human body. The trial took place over a 24 hour period of time and involved an equal number of generally healthy male and female subjects between 20 and 23 years of age. Subjects were randomly divided into two groups, the Vemma group and placebo group. Before the products were consumed, each participant’s blood was measured for baseline testing. Participants received either a single dose (2 ounces/59 mL) of the Vemma formula or the placebo before breakfast. Blood samples were then collected from each participant before and numerous times after taking the Vemma formula or placebo to track the presence of specific nutrients.

The noteworthy nutrients that showed up in the blood serum of the Vemma participants were vitamins B2, B5, ORAC (antioxidant levels) and alpha-mangostin, each reaching their maximum concentrations. ORAC materialized in the blood within one hour and maintained elevated saturation levels for six hours after intake. In the placebo group, no change in the blood serum was observed.

Yibing Wang M.D., Ph.D., Vemma Director of Product Development and Research, added, “It’s a great honor to have Vemma accepted for publication in a reputable journal such as the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. The trial results indicate Vemma delivers healthful nutrition in a highly bioavailable liquid form.*”

Vemma’s first clinical study entitled, “Effect of a Mangosteen Dietary Supplement on Human Immune Function: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial” can also be viewed in The Journal of Medicinal Food (Volume 12, Number 4, August, 2009). The Vemma formula is available in several product options including Vemma, Verve, a healthy energy drink, and Vemma NEXT™, a premium liquid children’s formula. Vemma branded products are distributed worldwide through a hybrid network of independent Brand Partners and select retail locations.
