NuGo Free Protein Bars Enhanced with Probiotics

NuGo Nutrition adds probiotics to gluten-free and vegan NuGo Free

Pittsburgh, PA (March 2017) NuGo Free Dark Chocolate Crunch and Dark Chocolate Trail Mix now contain natural probiotics to support a healthy immune system and promote digestive health. The powerful probiotic spore in NuGo Free Probiotic stays intact throughout the digestive track until it reaches the small intestine, where it is most effective. Most probiotics are extremely fragile, and are destroyed in the stomach before they reach the intestine.

According to over 25 research studies, the GanedenBC30 probiotic used in NuGo Free supports digestive and immune health and boosts protein utilization. It is survives 10x more effectively than yogurt cultures, making it the perfect choice for use in vegan protein bars. NuGo Free uses rice as the protein source and is certified gluten-free, vegan, OU kosher pareve, and Non-GMO.

NuGo Nutrition pioneered real dark chocolate coated protein bars for many lifestyles, including many certified gluten-free and vegan flavors. NuGo Free bars use luscious real dark chocolate, which melts below body temperature. When consuming, the natural cocoa butter separates from the cocoa powder providing the smooth texture, while releasing a full explosion of luscious real chocolate flavor.

Other bars are deceptively labeled as dark chocolate, but substitute unhealthy palm kernel oil for natural cocoa butter. This process raises the melt point of fake chocolate above body temperature. When consuming, the imitation chocolate does not melt in your mouth, imparting a waxy texture and overly sweet taste.

Join the fight for truth in labeling. Sign the FDA petition created by NuGo Nutrition to stop dark chocolate deception.

Probiotics are healthy bacteria that when ingested may help support good health. Over time, many factors including diet, aging, antibiotic use, medications, illness, travel, stress, and hormonal changes, can disrupt intestinal balance. Probiotics can help restore the balance. Most consumers prefer to get their probiotics from foods and beverages, instead of pills. NuGo Free contains 500 million CFU’s per serving of GanedenBC30, the only bacillus coagulan that has been endorsed by Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Michael Roizen, and Dr. Andrew Weil.

“We pride ourselves on making truly delicious protein bars for many healthy lifestyles, so when we learned about the demand for probiotics in bars, we knew this was the perfect fit for NuGo Free,” said David Levine, President of NuGo Nutrition.

NuGo bars are sold at retail stores throughout North America and online at nugonutrition.com. NuGo Free sample packs are available October-May for $6 with free shipping. With NuGo Free, consumers get the probiotics they need while enjoying luscious real dark chocolate.
