Black Raspberry Softgels: Healthy New Addition to FruitFast’s Top-Selling Supplement Line

FruitFast®, a leader in the fruit supplement industry, is introducing Black Raspberry Softgels - the newest addition to their popular line of healthy value-added products.

Traverse City, MI, October 02, 2008 --( A dark-skinned fruit that is a source of naturally-occurring antioxidants, black raspberries join the FruitFast family of quality, whole fruit products designed to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Black raspberries support healthy cardiovascular function* and are a source of ellagic acid for a healthy immune system.*

Marketed by Brownwood Acres Foods, FruitFast products have been at the forefront of the functional food industry utilizing premium fruits and cutting edge technology. A pioneer in their field, FruitFast produced the world’s first Montmorency Tart Cherry powder pill in 1999 and has since improved and taken their proprietary process to new levels. As a result, FruitFast Fruit Supplements are the Only product of their kind on the market today, “delivering the power of fruit” in a healthy, convenient and bio-available form. The revolutionary process utilizes the whole fruit – including the skin and pulp – to maintain the naturally-occurring antioxidants and anthocyanins that nature provides best.

FruitFast has been successful in capturing the nutrients found in fresh black raspberries; each Black Raspberry Softgel capsule contains 70 mg of Anthocyanins and 60 mg of ellagic acid. A laboratory-tested product, the Black Raspberry Softgel Certificate of Analysis is available on the company website,

The FruitFast process protects the potent berry’s phytonutrients that typically are destroyed due to high temperature processing. According to co-owner and process innovator Bob Underwood, “We are the only company in the world that uses this fruit technology. We preserve the whole fruit without extracting compounds and without turning the fruit into a less potent powder. Instead, we are relying on Mother Nature’s formula as being the best way to benefit from the fruits’ inherent properties.”

FruitFast softgels utilize 21st Century technology to create a superior product without added sugars, fillers or preservatives and all products are made from North American grown fruit.

For less than the price of a cup of coffee, the new FruitFast Black Raspberry Softgels can provide your body with the daily natural antioxidants to help support healthy cardiovascular function and maintain a healthy immune system.*

As an additional benefit, the company recently announced that prices on their entire line of softgels have been reduced. The new everyday price per 60-count bottle of all softgels is $19.95. Additional savings are available when FruitFast Softgels are purchased in quantity. When six or more bottles are ordered, the price drops to $18.95 per bottle. As an added incentive, the company is offering free shipping on orders of 12 or more bottles of FruitFast Softgels.
