NutriLeads’ Immune-supporting Benicaros Now Available in Taiwan Through Maxcare Inc.

December 14, 2022 – NutriLeads BV announced today that it has expanded global distribution of Benicaros®, the company’s clinically proven immune-support ingredient for foods, beverages and supplements, through an agreement with Maxcare Inc. in Taiwan.

Benicaros is a natural, soluble prebiotic carrot fiber that accelerates healthy immune responses through a unique dual mechanism of action. Benicaros trains the immune system by preparing innate immune cells to respond faster and selectively increasing beneficial gut microorganisms and their metabolites that support immune health. Clinical research shows that healthy individuals taking Benicaros felt better faster and reported significant reductions in the severity and duration of common cold symptoms following a controlled challenge.

Based in Taipei, Maxcare specializes in clinically supported, science-based nutraceuticals, fruit and botanical extracts with numerous product applications. Maxcare has broad expertise and resources for product development, marketing and consumer education, and logistic services.

“Maxcare is an excellent partner for creating commercialization opportunities for Benicaros in Taiwan,” said Joana Carneiro, Ph.D., NutriLeads Chief Executive Officer.  “As Taiwan’s leading distributor of specialty ingredients, Maxcare has extensive relationships with leading food, beverage and supplement manufacturers. It also has unmatched experience in all aspects of product development and marketing.”

Steve Wu, general manager at MAXCARE Inc., said: “After the COVID-19 pandemic, people are more focused on their own health, especially their immune health. Benicaros is patented and provides clinically proven immune support. It is our pleasure to be working with the NutriLeads team and we look forward to opportunities for Benicaros to improve people’s health and overall wellness.”

Benicaros is an eco-friendly natural ingredient that is off-white in color, water soluble, odorless, tasteless and pH and heat stable. It is also Kosher, Halal, non-GMO, vegan and vegetarian and available in an organic version. A recommended daily serving of Benicaros is only 300 mgs.
