City of Industry, CA—AIDP has secured a US patent on a new combination of prebiotics, according to a press release. Patent 10,881,675 B2 was awarded for the composition of green or gold kiwi extract powder with PreticX, a branded xylooligosaccharide.

AIDP’s PreticX and Actazin—a green kiwi extract powder—were studied together in a double blind placebo controlled clinical trial. Healthy participants were randomized into three groups, receiving placebo, 600mg Actazin, or 600mg Actazin + 1.4g of 70% PreticX for 28 days. Actazin combined with PreticX significantly improved regularity over Actazin alone and over placebo.
