What is AvéULTRA?
AvéULTRA ™ invented by Dr. Mate Hidvégi, and manufactured by American BioSciences is the first dietary supplement made in the U.S. to contain Avemar®, fermented wheat Germ standardized to methoxy-substituted benzoquinones (DMBQ), a patented nutrient which has been the subject of 20 peer-reviewed research publications.
AvéULTRA is a health drink mix that comes in pre-measured, individual use packets each containing 5.5 grams of Avemar® freeze-dried actives.
Each packet is intended to be mixed with 4 oz of cold water or any juice. AvéULTRA is sold in a box of 30, pre-measured, individual use packets; a month’s supply for most consumers. if over 199 lbs. suggested use is 2 packets per day.
What are the benefits of taking AvéULTRA?
Once daily use is shown to support healthy immune system modulation and the regulation of cell metabolism, supporting the processes of cell differentiation and repair*.
Supports cell metabolic regulation*
Promotes immune system modulation*
Maintains healthy cellular & humoral (Th1/Th2) immune balance*
Promotes optimal NK cell targeting ability and the coordinated response of macrophages, B-cells and T-cells*
Research on Avemar®, the primary ingredient in AvéULTRA can be found at the website, www.AvemarResearch.com, and by searching the NIH Medline website with the search term, “Avemar®.”
The development of Avemar® Fermented Wheat Germ Extract has become the life's work of it's inventor, Dr. Mate Hidvégi. Its development was initiated by the Hungarian-American physician, Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his part in the discovery of vitamin C and the processes of cell metabolism. Dr. Szent-Gyorgyi theorized that providing supplemental quantities of a occurring molecule called DMBQ (2,6-dimethoxy-p-benzoquinone) would help chaperone the process of cell metabolism, keeping cell metabolic function from varying from the narrow range of activity that defines good health.
Where does AvéULTRA come from?
AvéULTRA is manufactured by American BioSciences under several quality assurance systems in the U.S. approved by it's inventor, Dr. Mate Hidvégi.
American BioSciences, Inc. of Blauvelt, NY is the exclusive distributor of Avemar® in the U.S. and has completed the FDA process of establishing Avemar® as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe), a designation that allows its use in foods, beverages and dietary supplements. According to the expert panel that assessed cell line, animal and human data on the safety and toxicity of Avemar® consumption, Avemar® has the toxicological profile of bread, and is very safe to consume at the recommended usage levels.
What is the recommended usage of AvéULTRA ?
As a dietary supplement, recommended usage is one AvéULTRA packet per day, mixed with 4 oz (120 ml) cold water (or any juice). Mixing is best accomplished by shaking in a closed container (add liquid first, then AvéULTRA, close lid and shake). It is best to consume within 30 minutes of mixing. AvéULTRA should be consumed one hour before or after a meal, and two hours before or after any drugs or other dietary supplements. For best results use AvéULTRA daily.
For people over 199 lbs, the recommendation is to use two packets per day, for people under 100 lbs, the recommendation is to use 1/2 packet per day. Consult with a healthcare professional for recommended usage levels for children, and for guidance on alternative usage levels, and use in combination with other dietary supplements.
Who should not consume AvéULTRA ?
Women who are pregnant or nursing should not consume AvéULTRA. It should not be consumed by people who have had an organ or tissue transplant, for those suffering from bleeding GI ulcers, malabsorption syndrome, gluten sensitive enterophaties (celiac sprue), who have hypersensitivity to gluten, wheat germ or any of the components or ingredients of this product.
It is recommended to discontinue AvéULTRA usage 2 days before barium X-ray contrast examinations and resume 2 days after the completion of the examination.
Allergen Statement: AvéULTRA contains wheat ingredients.
Although the process of making the product removes all gluten, the principle allergen in wheat, the product comes in contact with gluten containing wheat, and the possibility of contamination exists.
Are there side-effects associated with using AvéULTRA ?
AvéULTRA is well tolerated by most people. No serious side effects have been reported in extensive human testing. Occasionally burping, bloating or soft stools may occur when first starting with AvéULTRA, but these symptoms usually improve with continued use. If diarrhea occurs, try dividing the daily usage amount into two halves, and taking separately, one morning, one late afternoon.
How long does someone have to take AvéULTRA before they notice a difference?
People often report improvements in appetite, energy and daily activity within 3 weeks of beginning to take AvéULTRA daily. Objective measures of improvement typically occur within 3 months.
How long should someone continue to take AvéULTRA?
For long-term results, one should use AvéULTRA for at least 6 months. People in fragile states of health, need more help staying healthy than those in more robust good health. Human clinical trials involving hundreds of subjects taking AvéULTRA daily over a period of several years have proven it safe and beneficial for long-term use. Since AvéULTRA supports the basic mechanisms that the body utilizes to respond to stress and the daily challenges to health*, it may make sense to use it continuously.
Determining how long to use AvéULTRA comes down to a personal judgment of when one is “healthy enough.” Consulting with a physician can help in evaluating the factors of whether to continue or stop using the product. People using AvéULTRA can stop at anytime without experiencing side-effects or a withdrawal. It is non-addictive and non-habit forming.
Is there a recommendation for using AvéULTRA at a lower “maintenance level” of use?
Since research has shown very dramatic and unique benefits from using AvéULTRA at the suggested level of use, and since this level of use is entirely safe and non-toxic, research has not considered the use of AvéULTRA at lower levels. Consultation with a physician may help determine whether a lower “maintenance level” of AvéULTRA use is appropriate.
What does it cost to use AvéULTRA on a monthly basis?
AvéULTRA comes in boxes of 30 pre-measured, individual serving packets (5.53g providing 5.5 g of Avemar®), intended for once a day use, providing a month supply at a suggested retail price of $199.95.
How does it compare to other wheat germ supplements?
There is really no comparison. Pure wheat germ, wheat germ oil, and wheat germ extract powder (often found as an ingredient in “green drinks”) may have generally beneficial properties, but research on these products has not shown the effects that AvéULTRA has demonstrated on helping to maintain normal, health cellular metabolism and immune regulation* (see research on Avemar® for additional information, www.AvemarResearch.com).
Can AvéULTRA be used with other dietary supplements?
There are many dietary supplements, and special diets that may benefit people who may wish to use AvéULTRA. None of them will interfere with AvéULTRA, and AvéULTRA will not interfere with them, as long as other supplements are consumed two hours before, or two hours after taking AvéULTRA. Consult with a health care professional that specializes in natural and nutritional medicine for a comprehensive protocol of diet, exercise and dietary supplements.
Can AvéULTRA be used with the American BioSciences supplement ImmPower ™?
Yes, as long as ImmPower is consumed two hours before or after taking AvéULTRA. They work in a very complementary manner, but through different mechanisms.
ImmPower is a pure form of the dietary supplement AHCC which has been shown to help support peak Natural Killer (NK) cell function and other benefits (see research at www.ahccpublishedresearch.com). AvéULTRA has been shown to enhance NK cell targeting ability. Peak NK cell function is associated with appropriate regulation of macrophage, B-cell and T-cell activity. AvéULTRA has been shown to maintain the proper balance of Th1 and Th2 cytokines (chemical messengers of the immune system) that support the coordinated interaction of NK cells, macrophages, B-cells and T-cells.
Can AvéULTRA be used with the American BioSciences supplement HP8 ™?
Yes, as long as HP8 is consumed two hours before or after taking AvéULTRA. They work in a very complementary manner, but through different mechanisms. HP8’s effects are targeted specifically to aspects of prostate health (see research at www.hp8research.com). AvéULTRA provides beneficial effects for all cell types in the body, and for overall immune function that can be particular important for men with concerns about prostate health.
Can AvéULTRA be used with prescription medications?
The primary ingredient in AvéULTRA, Avemar®, has been subjected to hundreds of studies resulting in more than 20 peer-reviewed publications, including studies that look at potential drug interactions. An answer as to whether AvéULTRA will interact with a specific drug is best obtained by consulting with a pharmacist or physician. Pharmacists and doctors can find research that can answer most questions on interactions at the website, www.AvemarResearch.com, and for specific questions, they can call American BioSciences, Inc. at 888-884-7770.
How do I store AvéULTRA ?
AvéULTRA can be stored at room temperature, but it should not be stored at temperatures above 80 Fahrenheit. Each packet is sealed, so humidity should not be a problem.
