Missouri-based National Enzyme Company (NEC) is promoting an enzyme, B complex, ginkgo biloba and Asian ginseng blend as a digestive aid and energy booster.

The safety of herbal teas containing ginkgo leaves cannot be evaluated due to insufficient data

The company’s director of marketing, Demetrius Bledsoe told NutraIngredients-USA.com only mild stimulant ingredients are used in the formulation targeting the dietary supplements market. Athletes and the health-conscious were the prime demographic but “normal people” ​who wanted to aid digestion were just as likely targets he said.

The customizable formulation was arrived at as part of NEC’s ongoing research and development program. He said the claims were being drawn from science already in the literature for the active constituents –vitamin B6 and B12, the herbs mentioned above and the enzyme, “Biocorelipo”.

No science had as yet been conducted on the particular blends in question.

NEC is manufacturing the formulations in final product form in bulk caps, bottles and jars.

NEC said the blend works to reduce the “energy-zapping effect on the body”​ typically expended during digestion. The blend – called ZIPEX2 – will assist the body in breaking down macronutrients, especially those present in ‘whole foods’ that require the most energy to digest.
