Health food outlets chain Vega Nutritionals Ltd has launched a new detoxification supplement called Champignon (ULTRA DETOX) in the UK and European markets. This is the first application of the active ingredient Champex™ in the alternative medicine industry.  Vega technical director Liz Butler commented: "The mushroom extract Champex™ has been shown to suppress chemicals such as hydrogen sulphide, mercaptan and ammonia which are generated in the intestines and can lead to body odour. If these and other similar chemicals pass into the blood stream they can impose a heavy burden on the liver and kidney.
