Plandai to Provide New Formula in Diet Industry Profit Quest


November 20, 2013 - Baltimore, MD

Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes that while high profile weight loss companies are failing to deliver revenue and profits the door is wide open for a new approach from Plandaí Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL) with its proprietary Phytofare™ Catechin Complex.

Weak economies and stagnant wages have decreased demand for specialized supplements or diets that are usually relatively expensive and companies like Jenny Craig are suffering the consequences. While the overall rise in obesity seems somewhat inevitable, the growing market for the healthy consumer also appears to be an opportunity for innovative products and technology. Plandaí is well positioned in this segment and results from its weight loss study should confirm this early sometime in 2014.

One of the many benefits of this product will be to aid in the fight against obesity, as several studies have demonstrated that green tea catechins are effective at inducing weight loss, especially when combined with caffeine. The process by which this happens is called "thermogenesis," which is the body's ability to create heat. Stimulating thermogenesis forces the body to burn its energy reserves which, once depleted, burns stored fat.

While green tea catechins and caffeine are not weight loss inducers, their effectiveness thus far has been limited for two related main reasons. First, catechins have poor bioavailability, which means they are not absorbed well in the blood stream. So, in order to get an effective dosage, massive quantities have to be ingested. Which leads to the second problem: heretofore, the amount of catechins and caffeine necessary to achieve meaningful weight loss has induced nausea in test patients. Plandaí overcomes both of these problems.

First, the bioavailability of Plandaí product is far superior to any other product on the market, which should produce better results related to benefits like weight loss. Moreover, the Phytofare™ Catechin Complex is comprised of more than just the EGCG catechin, which should pack an even greater punch through its absorption and weight loss effect. Second, Plandaí entraps its Phytofare™ in Pheroid -- a long-chain fatty acid that protects the molecules as they pass through the digestive tract. This means that larger dosages of the active ingredients can be ingested without producing nausea. Plandaí plans to test the effects of Phytofare™ Catechin Complex on 90 subjects, including a placebo group, over the course of three months in a human clinical trial. Plandaí expects that these results will provide a catalyst as it enters the weight loss and diet supplement market with a superior product that will appeal health conscious consumers and impact the top line growth in a beneficial way.
