Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production

The science of resiliency—for animals and humans.

Posted January 29, 2021 by Dr. Sangita Jalukar, Technical Services Manager

What’s the best way to support gut health, promote optimal immune function and give dairy and beef cattle, poultry and swine a fighting chance against the disease challenges they face every day?

That’s a question our researchers have studied tirelessly for years—and their answers have led directly to a product you probably already know well: CELMANAX™ is specifically formulated to build immune function and improve the overall resiliency of your animals.

RFCs and resiliency.

The Refined Functional Carbohydrates™ (RFCs™) in CELMANAX help prepare the immune system ahead of challenges so animals can respond quickly when they inevitably occur. Producers like you have trusted CELMANAX to deliver the resiliency your animals need for top performance day in and day out. But what you may not realize is that our researchers had no interest in stopping their research with production livestock.

What’s good for your animals …

Using what they discovered about the advantages of CELMANAX for animal well-being, our researchers conducted human clinical trials to determine if there were any crossover benefits. They soon learned many of the same modes of action benefiting animals could also support human immune systems.

Vitafusion for Cows

Good-for-you gummies.

Specifically, you can now support your own immune health with natural berry-citrus flavored vitafusion® Triple Immune Power gummy vitamins*. They not only include Vitamin D and Zinc, but also 500 mg of RenewX® per serving, a consumer version of the same active ingredients present in what the livestock industry knows as CELMANAX™.


“Built” for bioavailability.

Our commitment to science includes making sure the manufacturing process supports the overall advantages of these products. With that in mind both CELMANAX and RenewX are manufactured using a unique hydrolysis process which increases the bioavailability of the product to animals and humans.

Supporting overall well-being remains priority one.

All our work with CELMANAX and vitafusion advances our ultimate mission: We want to support the overall well-being of both animals and humans alike. We are the only food chain partner that integrates diverse technologies for animal and food production systems in global markets. And ARM & HAMMER™ is always on the lookout for science-supported, sometimes-unexpected ways to improve profitability and produce safer, more affordable food. And the relationship between CELMANAX and vitafusion is just one more way we’re living out that mission.
