The probiotic is found in the commercially available products Bio-Kult, Bio-Kult Migréa and Bio-Kult Mind.

Levagen+

Gencor Pacific

Levagen+ is Gencor's branded palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) - a potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic. PEA is naturally produced by the body as a repair mechanism in response to periods of increased stress, pain and inflammation. Powered by LipiSperse delivery technology, Levagen+ is cold water dispersible, providing format versatility and x1.8 more bioavailability than standard PEA. PEA is increasingly relevant within a sport and active environment particularly in response to injury and pain, to prolong performance, and as a potential post exercise recovery aid.
