Dietary supplements manufacturer Alacer has launched four new flavours of Emergen-C Immune+ dietary supplement.

The flavours to be launched are two new fizzy drink mixes of super orange and raspberry, and two new hot drink mixes of berry medley and apple cider. The drinks will include Wellmune WGP as a key ingredient.

Developed by biotechnology company Biothera, Wellmune is a natural super fibre that supports healthy immune function. It is a beta glucan derived from a proprietary baker’s yeast.

The Wellmune brand will be featured on packages of the four drinks.

Biothera CEO Richard G. Mueller said: "Immune health continues to be a major health priority for people across the US and we are thrilled to be part of Emergen-C Immune+.

"Our goal is to help people live healthy and active lifestyles, and with Wellmune as part of Emergen-C’s Immune+, Alacer is able to provide a dietary supplement with a unique complex that supports the immune system."

The new flavors of Emergen-C Immune+ will be available at all major food, drug and mass retailers throughout the US.
