LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - November 30, 2016) - Plandaí Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL) ("Plandaí" or "the Company"), producer of the highly bioavailable Phytofare® catechin complex, is pleased to announce that they have received an initial purchase order from Capital Brands LLC, distributor of the world famous, NutriBullet®, who will feature Phytofare® Catechin Complex as an active ingredient in their nutrient extraction powder mix, "Superfood Fat Burning Boost®" which will be for sale exclusively in the USA early in Q1 2017. NutriBullet, the maker of the popular nutrient extraction blender, has formulated superfoods containing pea protein, fibers, antioxidants, and vitamins that can be easily combined into healthy smoothies. The company uses GMO-free ingredients sourced from the world's most reputable farms that undergo extensive testing for purity, effectiveness and flavor.
Callum Cottrell-Duffield, Vice President of sales and marketing for Plandaí Biotechnology, commented, "We are excited that a company with such a sterling reputation for using quality sources for their ingredients has chosen to use our product to better their own. Phytofare® is the only green tea catechin extract backed by human clinical studies which confirms that it has ten times greater bioavailability over generic extracts. Green tea catechins have been widely studied and shown to promote weight loss by increasing thermogenesis; however, poor bioavailability has historically hampered their effectiveness except at high dosages, which can lead to nausea and other unwanted side effects. By using Phytofare® as the active ingredient, NutriBullet can deliver a product at lower dosage points, but with greater therapeutic benefit. We look forward to a long a mutually profitable relationship with NutriBullet LLC."
Dr. Rockway, VP of R&D for Capital Brands LLC, added, "We take great pride in insuring not only do our products meet the highest quality standards, but also that we can deliver on the promises on our packaging. Adding Phytofare® Catechin Complex to our SuperFood Fat Burning Boost® is a significant value add for many reasons. Not only is Phytofare® Catechin Complex clinically proven in human studies to be a superior ingredient, but we are impressed with Plandaí's commitment to providing economic empowerment to the South African people while also responsibly operating with a zero carbon footprint. These are all values that we as a company and our customers share with Plandaí."
