BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Soviet Cold War-era Chief Health Minister and scientist, General Vsevolod Ogarkov, had no idea the fruits of his bio-warfare research program would be used by 21st century American doctors and patients for immune system support during the winter cold and flu season. Dr. Ogarkov's team were the first researchers to successfully modify probiotics, also known as "friendly" bacteria, as immune system supplements.
The probiotic-derived supplement Del-Immune V(R) is the culmination of Russian and U.S. research that began 30 years ago with Dr. Ogarkov's discoveries. Originally developed in the bio-warfare labs of the former Soviet Union, the immune-support supplement was first developed to protect Soviet soldiers and citizens from bio-warfare agents. Modern research confirms Dr. Ogarkov's findings that the grandchild of his original research, Del-Immune V, triggers an immediate immune response to help protect users not only from bio-toxins, but seasonal illness and other viruses and infections as well.
Scientifically known as Lactobacillus bacteria, probiotics are a traditional part of the Eastern-European food culture. Probiotics support the body in dozens of functions, including healing and maintenance of the impaired immune system and digestive tract.
Today, Del-Immune V is the only probiotic-derived product in the U.S. made from the original Russian formula and offers a natural way to build up your immune system during the cold and flu season.
"Even though probiotics were first discovered in the early 20th century, we discover new uses for them every day," said Dr. Liubov Shynkarenko, PhD and Vice-President of Pure Research Products, distributor of Del-Immune V.
Early in her career, Shynkarenko, a Russian-trained microbiologist, helped develop the product for the USSR and discovered that Del-Immune V could be helpful in supporting the immune system during cancer treatment and other serious health challenges such as virus infections.
"What was developed in the old Soviet Union during the Cold War is now being used to keep people healthy all over the world," said Dr. Shynkarenko.
"I have observed that patients who support their immune system with Del-Immune V significantly reduce the number of times they get sick over the winter season and also show decreased duration of colds and flu," said Elin Ritchie M.D., who practices integrative medicine in Taos, N.M.
Del-Immune V(R), manufactured by Lyoferm Inc (Indiana) and distributed by Boulder-based Pure Research Products LLC (PRP), is a probiotic-derived nutritional supplement that provides immediate immune system support. Del-Immune represents the culmination of 30 years of research originated by Cold War-era Soviet Bloc scientists and Russian military bio-warfare troop protection programs. PRP obtained exclusive rights to manufacture, distribute and market the unique Lactobacillus rhamnosus (DV strain) from its Russian partners in 2002. Del-Immune V is used by thousands and recommended by doctors around the world. For more information, please visit http://www.del-immune.com.
