Osato International brings papaya-based immunity booster to U.S.

LOS ANGELES — Osato International recently brought Immun’Âge, a fermented papaya preparation, to the U.S. market. According to Osato, the superfood supplement helps boost the immune system and serves as an antioxidant.

"Many of the chronic ailments afflicting us as we age have multiple origins and a common factor - oxidative stress," noted Pierre Mantello, executive director of the Osato Research Institute. "Immun’Âge is easily ingested and has proven to have remarkable antioxidant and immunostimulating properties."

The process behind Immun’Âge begins on Hawaii's Big Island, where the only non-GMO-certified papayas are grown at the Diamond Head Papay Co., the company reported. The fermentation process takes 10 months.

According to the company, Immun’Âge is a popular food supplement in Italy, with additional distribution across Europe.
