GREEN BAY, WI, July 21, 2011— When it comes to immune health, people are looking for a natural choice that provides strong defense and supports the body’s natural resistance. Viragen™, recently launched by EuroPharma Inc., is the answer. 

“Any season is really the right time to bring a product like Viragen to the natural health market,” said Cheryl Myers, head of education and scientific affairs for EuroPharma Inc. and scientific advisory board member. “Although we tend to associate immune concerns with only one season, the fact is, these challenges to our system can happen at any time.”

Viragen features the bio-typed oil of Ravensara, concentrated from the leaves of the Ravensara aromatica tree. It is known in its native Madagascar as the “tree with good leaves” because of its many health supportive benefits. When combined with the powerhouse plant oils of myrtle, thyme and bay, the synergy of these ingredients supports bronchial airways and the body’s own immune defenses.

The rigorous testing that bio-typed oils endure is what accurately identifies the elements of their natural chemical composition, which in some cases contain as many as 300 biochemically distinct molecules. These plant oils are tested and “fingerprinted” based on specific molecular makeup, species, marker compounds, purity and safety for internal medicinal use.

“We consider this a very unique product because it contains one of the only versions of this oil that is safe enough to be taken internally,” Myers continued. “We believe that Viragen is the next step in natural immune support.”

EuroPharma offers clinically proven and effective nutritional supplements and natural medicines that improve the health of America. Throughout his 40-year career, president and founder Terry Lemerond has created more than 400 high-quality formulations all backed by scientific validation, many that are unique, proprietary and in some cases, patented. Lemerond was the first to introduce glucosamine sulfate, IP-6, black cohosh for menopause, standardized Ginkgo biloba and the concept of botanical standardization to the U.S. health food market.
