EUGENE, Oregon (November 10, 2020) Run Gum—the Oregon-based functional gum company founded by 2x Olympian Nick Symmonds, along with his coach Sam Lapray—this week announced the release of the brand’s newest line of gum with benefits—Run Gum Immunity.
Run Gum Immunity is the first new function for the brand that came out with its flagship product, Run Gum Energy, in 2014. With the increased awareness of our immune health in 2020, Symmonds wanted to create a product that would enhance his daily wellness routine.
“To help boost my own immune system, I asked the team to create the best immunity product possible,” said Symmonds. “The goal was to create a great tasting piece of gum that was packed with immune-boosting ingredients. It took six months and dozens of trials, but I'm proud to say we did it.”
The new product was formulated to support immune health using a blend of functional ingredients that includes, LifeinU™ BSCU1, a unique and patented strain of the probiotic, Bacillus subtilis; one of the most stable and clinically proven probiotics for immune health. The gum also contains elderberry, B1, B2, B6, and B12 vitamins and features a brand new flavor, mixed berry & cherry. All Run Gum functional gums are zero-calories, have no added sugar, are gluten-free and vegan-friendly.
“From day one our mission has been to fuel and inspire people to make the most of their busy days. It continues to be at the core of everything we do,” says Symmonds. “Our busy lifestyles often weaken our natural defenses, causing us to get sick and miss out on the important things. Run Gum Immunity is a new way to boost your immune system so that you can perform your best and Run Your Day!”
Like Run Gum Energy, Run Gum Immunity uses a unique compression process to infuse functional ingredients into a piece of chewing gum. Gum as the delivery vehicle allows for sublingual and buccal absorption, giving customers a fast boost without the need of any liquids.
Run Gum Immunity is sold in 30-piece resealable pouches with a suggested retail price of $19.99. For more information visit rungum.com
