P.L. Thomas (PLT) is a trusted discoverer, developer and distributor of high-quality, scientifically supported ingredients that enhance health and functionality. As a leading ingredients innovator, PLT’s global network of strategic partnerships provides unique access to impactful solutions.

PLT partners with its suppliers and participates in many aspects of product development, including key investments, to ensure alignment with the marketplace. PLT Health Solutions welcomes ideas from companies with ingredients that match its high standards.
• Immune: Wellmune WGP® is the proven immune ingredient that’s ideal for foods, beverages or supplements. Nine clinical studies have demonstrated the unique ability for this natural, GRAS ingredient to enhance key immune responses to promote health, wellness and vitality.
• Joint Health: AprèsFLEX® is the next generation boswellia extract for joint health. In a recent clinical study, AprèsFLEX supplementation demonstrated significant improvements in joint comfort, function and mobility.
• Cognitive: Zembrin® is a new, patented, botanical ingredient that relieves stress by elevating mood, promoting calm and enhancing cognition. It has been clinically studied for safety and efficacy. Zembrin is unique—users can actually feel its benefits and experience enhanced mood and concentration and relief from stress.
• Bone Health: MenaQ7™ Crystals is the purest Vitamin K2 for proven bone and heart health. NattoPharma holds U.S. and Canadian patents for the use of menaquinone (vitamin K) in foods and supplements for cardiovascular health.
• Skin Health: Lipowheat®, a natural, vegetarian source of ceramides, is a class of lipids that are the skin’s natural sealant. Lipowheat helps hydrate skin, fights signs of aging and leaves skin soft and supple.

Weight Management
PLT Health Solutions has three distinct options for weight management:
• Satiereal®, clinically studied to support weight management by controlling compulsive behavior toward eating;
• Xanthigen®, demonstrated to promote weight loss through synergistic effects of its all-natural components and holding a recently-issued U.S. patent; and
• Adipromin™, shown in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, human study to promote weight loss, reduce body mass index (BMI) and positively impact cholesterol, triglycerides and serum adiponectin levels.

Heart Health
Along with MenaQ7 Crystals, PLT has at least three more naturally-derived solutions for heart health. MegaNatural® BP and MegaNatural® Gold are both grape seed extracts. MegaNatural BP is clinically shown to support blood pressure within the normal range with no adverse side effects. MegaNatural Gold is an antioxidant grape seed extract. Hytolive™ is a 100 percent natural solvent-free water extract of olive fruit, which contains high purity natural hydroxytyrosol. A recently published study in the New England Journal of Medicine about the benefits of the Mediterranean diet reinforced the desirability of inclusion of hydroxytyrosol in the diet. A dosage of 100 mg of Hytolive powder contains the hydroxytryrosol equivalent to 10 table olives or a half-liter of extra virgin olive oil.
