Punalpin® PLUS is produced by the Danish company Nerthus ApS and is the result of 7 years targeted product development and research, including clinical testing.
Selenium contributes to normal spermatogenesis, while zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction. Pomegranate and galangal are selected from superior sources with a high content of punicalagins and acetoxychavicol acetate, respectively. Aronia is produced from own-bred wild-types with a unique anthocyanin profile.

Selenium and zinc
Selenium contributes to normal spermatogenesis, while zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction. The content of selenium and zinc makes it possible to market Punalpin® PLUS as a fertility product for men, who wish to optimize their sperm quality.
Pomegranate and galangal
Pomegranate and galangal are selected from superior sources with a high content of punicalagins and acetoxychavicol acetate (ACA), respectively. The pomegranate extract is supplied by a leading European manufacturer of botanical extracts. Galangal rhizomes are processed according to a patented method developed by Nerthus ApS, which has made it possible to preserve ACA and other semivolatile bioactive compounds of the fresh rhizomes during the manufacturing processes as well as in the finished product. Pomegranate and galangal are found in the same doses in Punalpin® PLUS (measured from the content of marker compounds) as in the original Punalpin® product.
Punalpin® PLUS combines all active ingredients in one tablet. Our patented processing method of galangal protects the fragile compound ACA from gradual degradation by other components in the tablet formulation.
