To help address many health concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Avida Health — a Singapore dietary supplement firm — announced the launch of a new chocolate ball designed to improve children's immunity. The new product is targetted at children between the ages of four and twelve and is formulated with several key bioactive such as probiotics, blackcurrant, and beta-glucan, among others.
The fungi-derived Beta-glucan is a specific ingredient (formulated by Avida Health) that has become renowned for its immune system benefits that "stimulates the macrophage to ingest harmful microorganisms that have entered the body from the outside environment." This key ingredient has been preserved using water and ethanol as the extraction solvent.
