BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - May 31, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and micro cap sectors, posits that given its high degree of bioavailability Plandai Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL) could change the way the market and consumer utilize green tea extracts. Plandai Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL) is a developer of highly bioavailable, phytonutrient rich extracts, which are being utilized to deliver a new family of drugs to safely and affordably treat a multitude of diseases and conditions.
Green tea, or green tea extracts are some of the most popular products in the wellness nutraceutical segment. Its gallate catechins are known to have been used extremely effectively and efficiently as an antioxidant, weight loss aid by increasing metabolism, cold prevention, oral health, and cardiovascular health. Yet, due to the nature of how the gallate catechins are typically extracted from dry leaves, the overwhelming majority of these products have low bioavailability of perhaps 10%, meaning that the rate to which an active ingredient can be absorbed by the body's tissues is not very high.
Conversely, according to published USDA studies, the Plandai-grown product has demonstrated to have improved bioavailability over other products by 60-80%, far exceeding anything currently available today. In order to obtain the same bioavailability from competing products currently in the market, consumers would have to purchase and consume anywhere from 6-8 times as much product to generate an equivalent efficacy.
Based on the announcement of development and distribution agreements, Plandai's (green tea) Catechin Extract should become widely available via nutraceutical products, in late 2013. Given their substantially higher bioavailability, once these products become available, it should have a tremendous impact on Plandai (OTCQB: PLPL) and the entire nutrition market.
