When Cardium Therapeutics recently acquired To Go Brands, a San Diego based nutraceuticals developer, it was a major expansion of Cardium’s original Medpodium nutraceutical line, and reflective of the company’s support for the nutraceutical side of their business. Cardium, known for its developments in the area of regenerative medicine, is also becoming a growing player in the area of wellness and disease prevention. To Go Brand products cover a range of weight-loss and energy markets for active professionals, but also include the following offerings designed to promote basic nutritional health:
• Healthy Belly is a probiotic digestive mix of live “friendly” bacteria that are beneficial when consumed daily for maintaining digestive balance. For hundreds of years dairy foods containing live cultures have been touted as having beneficial digestive and intestinal properties. Now increasing numbers of health-conscious people are seeking more convenient ways to add the benefits of probiotics to their diets. Each packet contains natural probiotic cultures plus fiber that can help regulate the digestive system.
• Go Greens Super Fruits & Veggies is packed with more than 15 organic fruits and veggies to provide an antioxidant powder equivalent to 6 servings of fruits and vegetables, and with a great taste. One serving of Go Greens has an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value of 4000. As a comparison, a serving of broccoli has an ORAC value of 700.
• Omega To Go provides 100 mg of Vegetarian Omega in an orange dreamsicle flavor, is packed with antioxidants from Vitamins A, C, E, and D, and is a good source of fiber for healthy digestion. It also contains life’sDH™, one of the only vegetarian sources of DHA on the market today. Unlike oils derived from fish that may be high in ocean-borne contaminants, life’sDH™ comes from eco-friendly, sustainable algae. Fish actually get their high DHA content by eating algae, and life’sDH™ simply eliminates the “middle fish.”
