DENVER, COLORADO, Oct. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Age Beverages Corporation (NASDAQ: NBEV), the Colorado-based organic and natural products company, today announced the launch of the their patented ‘NHANCED Cell Defense and ‘NHANCED Hearing products through their direct-to-consumer network that spans over 50,000 exclusive sales consultants throughout Japan.
New Age’s Health Sciences Division (a wholly owned subsidiary of New Age) was established after the Company acquired the Premier Micronutrient Corporation. With the acquisition, New Age gained one of the most extensive patent portfolios in the consumer goods industry along with cooperative research studies and clinical trials spanning a range of consumer needs including cardiovascular health, diabetes improvement, hearing health, radiation protection, and others. The Company has now launched its radiation protection product and hearing health product under its umbrella ‘NHANCED brand in Japan, following the recent test marketing in Korea in the beginning of the third quarter.
Gerald M Haase MD, Chief Medical Officer of the New Age Health Sciences Division, stated “Ionizing radiation is particularly injurious to human DNA, cells and tissues causing oxidative stress, inflammation and breakage. It widely affects the population including frequent air travelers and those with occupational or medical exposures, and most consumers are completely unaware of the risks. New Age’s Cell Defense product has been proven to protect human DNA against the effects of ionizing radiation in clinical trials, and oral administration has been shown to strongly and specifically protect human DNA from double strand breakage.”
Vestibular disorders and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is caused by aging, noise exposure, and a number of other factors that cause damage to the temporal lobe auditory cortex, the cochlear nucleus, the vestibulocochlear nerve, and the cochlea. Oral consumption of New Age’s ‘NHANCED Hearing has been shown in clinical trials to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in these areas and provide symptomatic improvement in a majority of subjects.
Both New Age’s radiation protection and hearing health findings have been published in the Journal of the American College Of Cardiology and the American Journal of Otolaryngology respectively with references to be found at:

Tsukuru Nagahama, Vice President in Japan for New Age, commented: “Japan is having its best year in performance in the past 10 years, driven by the expansion of New Age’s Noni+Collagen product, the Te Mana Tahiti skin care portfolio rollout, the recent ‘NHANCED CBD launch that met with unprecedented success, and now the launch of ‘NHANCED Cell Defense and ‘NHANCED Hearing Health. As New Age’s largest market, we are excited to lead the way for the Company as the first major market to launch these initial Health Sciences products through our system of more than 50,000 dedicated exclusive consultants.”
