Plandai's Natural Performance Enhancement for Athletes

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Jul 2, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes that Plandaí Biotechnology Inc. ( OTCQB : PLPL ) offer products that meet the unmet needs of athletes. These include immune system health and strength, maximization of blood flow during training, and aiding in post-workout recovery. 

Professional and amateur athletes alike are constantly seeking an advantage to fight muscle fatigue and improve physical performance. This has spurred a growth in sports drinks and other 'nutraceutical' products as the athletic-minded consumer looks for an advantage via better performance. For example, in 2012, Global Industry Analysts (GIA) released a comprehensive report that forecast the consumption of sports and nutrition foods and drinks to be a $55 billion market in the U.S. alone by 2018. 

Plandaí Biotechnology Inc.'s ( OTCQB : PLPL ) Phytofare™ Citrus Limonoid Glycoside Complex is a unique product that is primed to serve the unmet needs of these athletes. This offering utilizes the entire fruit including juice, pith, peel, and pulp from where all of the soluble phytonutrients are recovered. Plandaí has spent over a decade developing this botanical extract and has developed a product that delivers the related nutrients more effectively from an absorption perspective than any other comparable product.

In fact, the unique product contains all of vitamins A & C, bioflavonoids, (especially Hesperidin and Rutin), limonoids (especially limonin and nomilin), and numerous minerals, including potassium and pectin. There is extensive research showing that citrus bioflavonoids have tremendous anti-inflammatory properties. Moreover previous third-party testing has shown that athletes taking a high-dosage citrus limonoid complex have experienced faster post-work out recovery and the virtual elimination of muscle pulls.

The Company plans to conduct future studies and trials for this product and, once it receives approval and is introduced to the consumer, it will be marketed to include all of the major benefits including enhanced athletic performance. Clearly, Plandaí's next generation delivery system and high absorption advantages will give Plandai a superior edge over competitors and presents substantial revenue opportunities in a huge vertical market.
