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.

“The mushroom also provides a rich source of amino acids as well as the deodorising and detoxification features.”

The company attributes its success to the combined experience of itself and the Champex supplier Direct Food Ingredients Ltd, which is also involved in marketing the product and educating consumers on its health benefits.

Steve Loake, managing director of Direct Food Ingredients, commented: “Our work with Vega Nutritionals Ltd proves we are heading in the right direction when supplying exclusively innovative and unique herbal ingredients alongside our comprehensive ingredient range.

“We look forward to announcing further product launches very soon.”
