Bioenergy Life Science: Providing What’s Vital for Maximum Performance

Company Description

Founded in 2000, Bioenergy Life Science, Inc. is an integrated life science company whose core technology is centered on a five-carbon carbohydrate Dribose.D-ribose is vital for the cellular synthesis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).Bioenergy RIBOSE® is widely used in food and nutrition products for energy enhancement. It helps accelerate energy recovery in muscles, reduces fatigue and alleviates muscle stiffness.

While every cell in the body has the ability to make ribose, the metabolic pathway used in D-ribose synthesis is slow and rate limited. In times of metabolic stress, the body’s inability to produce D-ribose limits ATP synthesis, restricts the formation of important cellular compounds and delays tissue recovery. Stressed cells simply cannot make energy fast enough to keep pace with demand. Ribose administration significantly accelerates energy recovery.

Athletes & Exercise

For serious athletes, recovery time is paramount. High-intensity exercise drains muscle energy pools, contributing to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), exertional fatigue, loss of peak performance and tissue damage. The fundamental role of ribose in energy synthesis and salvage is to accelerate tissue energy recovery, helping to restore the physiological condition of the muscle, reduce cell damage, limit free radical formation, and protect the heart and muscles from the rigors of strenuous exercise. For those who exercise more sporadically, prolonged muscle soreness and fatigue can also be debilitating.Clinically proven Bioenergy RIBOSE shortens recovery time, reduces muscle soreness and limits the onset or severity of fatigue for athletes of all levels.

Cardiovascular Health

Cardiovascular disease remains the No.1 killer of Americans. Cardiac energy metabolism plays a pivotal role in heart function. Many different types of diseases and activities may deplete cardiac energy stores by 30 percent or more, contributing to chronically depressed heart function. Ribose administration accelerates ATP synthesis, helping supply the crucial energy reserves needed to preserve cardiovascular health and wellness or recover from hypoxic insult.

General Nutrition

A randomized, placebo-controlled trial of Baby Boomers complaining of persistent fatigue showed that Bioenergy RIBOSE reinvigorated them, gave them new energy and greater exercise tolerance.In the two-week study, subjects were given 3 g doses twice per day of either Bioenergy RIBOSE or Dextrose.Results were evaluated using submaximal cardiopulmonary exercise tests given at baseline, one and two weeks.The results were overwhelming! The Bioenergy RIBOSE-supplemented group improved in three major measures of fitness and exercise tolerance, key to overcoming fatigue.

Product Development Support

Bioenergy RIBOSE is available in a variety of functional foods, beverages, sports nutrition, anti-aging products, supplements, dairy beverages, nutrition/ health/meal, replacement bars, clinical nutrition and more.Bioenergy Life Science works to confidentially help clients with claim development and technical support.

Ingredient Attributes

• Bioenergy RIBOSE is white to slightly yellow in appearance; imparts a mildly sweet flavor; is highly soluble in hot and cold liquids; the melting point is 85 degrees C.

• Bioenergy RIBOSE is the only ribose solution (as a food ingredient) to receive a GRAS (generally regarded as safe) affirmation, no questions letter from FDA.

• Bioenergy RIBOSE contains 1 calorie per gram.

• Bioenergy RIBOSE is non-GMO, kosher, halal and has a natural certification.

• Bioenergy Life Science has several patents covering broad applications for D-ribose in nutrition.

• Food application studies are available upon request.

ConnOils LLC: A Global Leader in Supplements With a Special Ingredient

Company Description

As a global manufacturer and distributor of nutritional supplements, ConnOils is the single-source supplier of quality products and raw ingredients. Its products are manufactured in a state-of-theart, NSF-and-GMP certified facility. Its suppliers must meet or exceed the company’s strict standards for quality.All this to provide safe, high-quality products that exceed customers’ expectations and satisfy all regulatory requirements each and every time.

“Plus, only ConnOils products include an extra ingredient,” explained CEO Stacy Peterson, “the healthy dose of prompt personal service that we put into every order.”

Peterson founded ConnOils in June, 2007, after managing the dietary supplement lines at Degussa and Cargill. She put her own distinctive imprint on the new company from the start.

“We’re a Midwest company and we follow the region’s principles,” Peterson explained. “We’re straightforward. We believe in doing the simple things. If we say that we’ll call you back, we do. Highquality products and high-quality customer service coexist here.”

She also decided to differentiate the company by making the operation lean and mean. So while ConnOils features a large company’s portfolio of services- everything from spray-dried oil powders to contract manufacturing-it offers a small company’s attention to client needs. For instance, ConnOils allows very small minimum order quantities, a huge advantage for new supplement manufacturers.

“There is a place in the industry for little companies with big ideas,” Peterson said.

What’s more, each client always works with the same ConnOils contact person.Always. “No one wants to talk to one person on Tuesday, another on Thursday, and then get the receptionist’s voicemail on Monday,” said Peterson.”Because of our corporate philosophy, everyone gets personal attention.”

Of course, outstanding customer service means nothing without a superior portfolio of natural products and services.Once again, ConnOils doesn’t disappoint:

Spray-dried oil powders and phytosterol concentrates: ConnOils’ specialty, these products feature the industry’s highest nutritional oil content in stabilized powder form. Company chemists monitor the production of the powders, which are produced in a cGMP-certified, state-of-the-art spray drying facility.

Essential oils (e.g., borage, evening primrose, blackcurrant oil): ConnOils is able to offer these products thanks to partnerships with suppliers who agree to meet the company’s rigorous standards for quality.

Custom formulations and privatelabel manufacturing: These include specialty supplements such as lecithin, phosphatidylserines and hydrolyzed collagen.Various delivery systems are available.

All of ConnOils products are competitively priced. They rigorously adhere to all Food and Drug Administration guidelines, and technical sheets and certificates of analysis are always available to clients. What’s more, ConnOils belongs to Natural Products Association, an organization which is recognized for its strong lobbying presence in Washington D. C., and which serves as the industry watchdog on regulatory and legislative issues.

Peterson sums up the benefits of doing business with ConnOils: “Our goal is always the same: What can we do for you today?”

Quality Assurance

Meeting state and federal food and drug regulations denotes a company is committed to passing a periodic review to ensure that its business continues to operate.However, when a company creates its own standards and enforces them on a weekly basis, that company is apparently committed to the clients themselves and to the quality of what people put into their bodies.Ecuadorian Rainforest exemplifies the latter scenario. Take note of some of the ways that it defines and enforces rigorous standards of quality for its products:

• The institution of an internal quality control program to ensure that products are free of toxins and undesired by-products.

• Alliances with science laboratories to enforce rigorous testing procedures.

• Weekly testing for microbial pathogens and heavy metals (lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury).

• Microbiological testing (total plate count, yeast & mold, coliforms, E. coli and salmonella).

• Random testing of materials moisture content.

• High-performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) testing for initial approval and supply of materials.

• High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) testing for powder extracts.

• Prevention of all sub-potent and contaminated materials from entering the products.

• Regular testing for proper identification and chemical efficacy.

Gencor: Branded Ingredients for Life Stage Management and Healthy Aging

Company Description

Gencor Nutrients supplies value-added, science-driven ingredients that are designed to improve quality of life for consumers in a broad range of life stages.

Rooted in ayurvedic tradition, Gencor specializes in herbal extracts manufactured under GMP compliance. The company’s portfolio of products includes: Slimaluma® (appetite suppression), Testofen® (libido enhancement, testosterone booster), Gencinia® (healthy blood sugar) and Genopause® (postmenopausal).

Company History

Gencor’s executives Jith Veeravalli and R. V. Venkatesh saw the potential to apply their pharmaceutical approach to nutraceuticals and founded Gencor in 1999 in Hong Kong. The company was initially started as a pharmaceuticals distributor, and then in early 2000, Gencor began developing nutraceuticals for life stage management. It opened a U.S. office in 2002.

Gencor’s main objective was, and still is, to provide scientifically validated solutions based on herbs and standardized herbal extracts for lifestyle management areas: satiety, weight management, blood sugar management, blood lipids management, virility, post menopausal syndrome and joint care.

The company worked to scientifically develop these solutions by validating the safety and efficacy of ingredients through in-vitro and in-vivo studies, human clinical trials, and safety and toxicity studies.Gencor has branded its nutraceutical ingredients and partners with primary and contract manufacturers to develop finished products.

Today, Gencor Nutrients has a successful portfolio of branded ingredients backed by science for life stage management and healthy aging.

Main Products

• Slimaluma is a proprietary standardized GRAS extract of Caralluma fimbriata, an edible plant used for centuries in India as a famine food and appetite suppressant. Gencor has developed a unique patented process to extract the essential constituents of the whole herb without chemical alteration to any of the key constituents, ensuring that the full benefits of the herb are delivered in concentrated form.

• Testofen is a natural solution for promoting healthy free testosterone levels and healthy libido. Testofen is a proprietary extract of the seeds of fenugreek, standardized for a unique matrix of saponins that Gencor has named Fenuside™. It is backed by an animal study and two human clinical studies showing that the product has aphrodisiac, anabolic and androgenic properties.

• Gencinia is a new ingredient for blood sugar management. It is an extract of Coccinia cordifolia, which has traditionally been consumed for centuries as a vegetable in India. Many published studies have shown that an extract of Coccinia cordifolia is effective in controlling blood sugar levels. A recent human clinical trial using Gencinia, published in the journal Diabetes Care, showed statistically significant reductions in fasting blood glucose levels, post-prandial blood glucose levels and glycosylated hemoglobin levels.

• Genopause is as herbal and totally non-estrogenic formula intended for a healthy menopausal experience. This innovative formulation, developed after years of research by physicians at the top ayurvedic university in India, is clinically tested and proven.

Other Ingredients

• Trigogen®
• Cleargen®
• Gentone®
• Procidin™
• Red Orange Complex™

Quality Assurance

Gencor cultivates its own herbs on company- managed farms, and the herbs are dried naturally to maintain their phytochemical content. All herbal extracts are single-herb extracts, free from contaminants and other constituents. Gencor utilizes GLP-certified labs to test all of its herbal extracts for microbial contamination and heavy metal content.Gencor’s scientifically based ingredients are built on peer reviewed clinical studies and double-blind, controlled trials.

Future Goals

Gencor’s goal is to bring additional innovative and scientifically supported ingredients into the nutraceutical, cosmeceutical, and functional food and beverage categories. It is committed to maintaining high quality ingredients for life-stage solutions.

Lonza offers DHAid™, a concentrated and purely vegetarian source of omega- 3 docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). It is produced from a proprietary strain of microalgae through a controlled fermentation process. DHAid is an environmentally friendly source of DHA as it is manufactured using renewable resources.

DHA is a type of omega-3 fatty acid that is used by the body as a building block for cell membranes and thus plays an important role in membrane fluidity, flexibility and permeability. Health benefits of DHAid include the support of brain development and function as well as heart and eye health. DHAid is available in liquid and powder forms, nonallergenic, free of potential contaminants, uses no chemical solvents for production and is GRAS affirmed.

ResistAid™ is a proprietary natural immune support ingredient made from larch trees that grow in abundance in the United States. ResistAid consists of the soluble fiber arabinogalactan and bioactive polyphenolic flavonoids, and thus has antioxidant capacity. ResistAid is formulated to deliver triple-action immune benefits year round, supporting both the innate and adaptive immune responses as well as gastrointestinal health. Clinical study results indicate that ResistAid has the ability to modulate and support both arms of the immune system and provide benefit from antioxidant capacity.

ResistAid has a number of technical properties, which make it easy to incorporate into dietary supplements and functional foods in standalone form or combined with other products to increase functionality. It is highly soluble, dissolving completely in hot or cold water, and is stable at a wide range of temperatures and pH. In beverages it keeps its functionality and neither degrades or hydrolyzes. ResistAid is certified kosher and self-affirmed GRAS.

For more than 40 years, Lonza has been the leading producer of the vitamin B3 ingredients, niacin and niacinamide.Both are essential vitamins that must be taken through diet or supplementation. They are used in food fortification, animal feed, multivitamin supplementation and pharmaceutical applications. Niacin is also used to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

The proprietary and fully backward integrated Carnipure production process was invented by Lonza scientists in Switzerland. It directly produces the L-isomer of carnitine, the form found in nature. Carnipure tartrate and Carnipure crystalline are self-affirmed GRAS for use in conventional foods as a dietary source of L-carnitine. Both are bright white, pH and heat stable, highly water-soluble and form colorless solutions.They can be used in dietary supplements in the form of tablets, capsules and powders as well as in beverages, bars, dairy and other food products.

Lonza also offers the Memree™ brand, which covers a line of products that includes high quality, soy-based phosphatidylserine (PS).

Spreading Integrity With Once Again Nut Butter

Company History

Jeremy Thaler and Constance Potter founded Once Again Nut Butter in 1976 as a worker cooperative. The pair created the Once Again Nut Butter name since they “once again,” created another worker co-op, and were “once again” creating a new endeavor.

After more than 30 years, its focus remains the same, and it has earned the reputation as a manufacturer of one of the best tasting and most consistent nut butters in the industry.Once Again Nut Butter was instrumental in developing the organic peanut growing standards in the United States.

PINES: Unquestionable Quality Green Foods and Cereal Grasses

Company Description

PINES strives to provide the best possible green food products to its customers, to help protect and restore farmland and wildlife areas, and to support its local and global community.

Company History

PINES Wheat Grass traces its roots to 1925 when an agricultural chemist named Charles Schnabel became the first scientist to discover the nutritional advantages of a diet incorporating young cereal grasses. In study after study, subjects fed these grasses displayed superior health and vitality to the ones on other diets- including diets incorporating more traditional vegetables.

Over the next 25 years, Dr. Schnabel and his colleagues at Cerophyl Laboratories would not only map the nutritional profiles of these valuable greens, but determine the keys to both harvesting and protecting their peak nutritional value-a pioneering body of work that has served as a blueprint for the methods and practices utilized by PINES.

The company is proud to supply its customers with the same high-quality cereal grasses, grown without the need for irrigation in the same kind of rich glacial soils that the scientists used for dozens of studies published in major medical journals. Young grasses like PINES Wheat Grass and PINES Barley Grass contain the widest spectrum of vitamins and minerals found in any vegetable, as well as additional growth and reproductive characteristics that Schnabel and his team dubbed “the grass juice factor.” Whether in powder or tablet form, try PINES cereal grasses and discover the advantages of whole-food nutrition: “Mother Nature’s Multiple.”

All PINES products are grown with natural rainfall and are never irrigated in regions that do not need irrigation.Most other green products are being grown in rather unnatural conditions in arid and semi-arid regions that need irrigation. Unfortunately, nearly all ground water in the U.S. is now contaminated with farm chemicals.

PINES drying facilities are state-of-theart, low-temperature and computer-controlled.Other products from other producers are dried in animal feed alfalfa driers. After the short cereal grass harvest in the spring, their facilities are then used to dry non-certified organic alfalfa pellets for feedlots. PINES facilities are stainless steel and designed for human food, not animal food, and are used only for food grade cereal grass and alfalfa.

PINES produced alfalfa is for companies that want an alfalfa with a natural green color rather than the brownish-grey alfalfa that is commonly sold. The company’s certified organic, GMO-free alfalfa is harvested by direct cutting and low-temperature drying using the same food grade equipment used for its cereal grasses.PINES alfalfa and cereal grass never touch the ground and are dried immediately after being harvested. Most other alfalfa on the market is simply ground up hay that was left for several weeks to dry in the field on top of the dirt.

Since opening for business in 1976, PINES has been the premier supplier of cereal grass and alfalfa. If you are not already a customer, the company invites you do join other companies who care about quality and know that the grass is always greener on PINES side of the fence!

Main Products

• Wheat Grass (Powder and Tablets)
• Barley Grass (Powder and Tablets)
• Alfalfa (Powder and Tablets)

Quality Assurance

PINES follows all the strict requirements for organic certification, as defined by the National Organic Program. Even before the certified organic program existed, it was growing its cereal grasses, beets and alfalfa organically since 1982, and the company has never used chemical herbicides or pesticides.Quality Assurance International (QAI), Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) and Indiana Certified Organic certify PINES products. Pines is also certified kosher.Every 1,000 kilos batch of PINES products is tested by independent laboratories for nutritional levels, yeast, mold, bacteria, heavy metals and pathogens.Tests also show PINES products are within range to be considered GMOfree and gluten-free.

Xylitol USA: Providing Sweet Natural Solutions

Company Description

Xylitol USA, Inc. is the leading North American supplier of natural sweeteners and naturally sweetened products.Focusing exclusively on domestic sources, the company has carved out a leadership position in the North American market for supplying highquality bulk sweeteners to manufacturers across the country, while also producing a full line of naturally sweetened products.

Xylitol USA offers XylaTM Xylitol (made only from North American-made hardwood), Pure Palm Organic Coconut Palm Sugar and zero-calorie Erythritol- all natural sweeteners, nothing artificial.”Healthier, Sweeter, Smarter.”

The Xyla line of products also includes gum, mints, sour candies, hard candies, chocolates, lollipops, gourmet sauces (barbeque, teriyaki and ketchup) and gourmet jams. All of which are sweetened only with Xyla Xylitol, and therefore are diabetic-friendly and healthier for every consumer. Coming soon is an entire oral hygiene line, to include toothpaste, mouthwash and breath spray.

Xyla Xylitol tastes and looks like sugar, but actually heals and repairs the body instead of inflicting the damages of sugar. Xyla Xylitol is alkaline enhancing, is low glycemic (rating 7), diabeticfriendly and has several medical benefits.Xylitol is a five-carbon sugar, which means it is an antimicrobial, preventing the growth of bacteria, whereas other forms of sugar and sweeteners are sixcarbon sugars that feed on dangerous bacteria and fungi. With 40 percent fewer calories and 75 percent fewer carbohydrates than sugar, and no artificial ingredients added to Xylitol USA’s sweetener, Xyla Xylitol is the perfect choice for a natural sweetener.

The natural sweetener market has undergone exponential growth over the past decade, and Xylitol USA has been providing the market with high quality sweeteners. With the population of diabetics rapidly rising, and with more people adopting healthy lifestyles, consumers around the globe are starting to take a closer look at what ingredients are in the products they consume. Sugar and artificial sweeteners are among those products that consumers are beginning to avoid.Xylitol USA’s natural sweeteners and naturally sweetened product line are the perfect product between refined sugar and artificial sweeteners, both of which are unhealthy for the consumer.

The mainstream consumer that is avoiding sugar out of necessity or a health-oriented diet is left with few alternatives that aren’t chemically produced.As these consumers continue to demand natural alternatives, Xylitol USA is poised to fill this void while at the same time assisting its partners in developing and producing naturally sweetened goods.

The company’s state-of-the-art production and distribution facility located in Aurora, CO serves as a hub accessible with equal efficiency throughout the country.

Nutraceutix: Making Probiotics and Nutraceuticals Better

Company Description

With an unmatched collection of specialized process and technology patents combined with more than 25 years of experience in the industry, Nutraceutix contract manufactures the industry’s finest probiotics in a variety of forms-from bulk powder, to capsules and advanced tablets in bulk or fully finished bottles. The company also formulates and manufactures superior controlled-release nutraceuticals that offer distinct advantages to brand, retailer and consumer.

Bulk Probiotic Powders

Nutraceutix has grown natural probiotic strains for well over two decades. It controls the entire process, from growing the organisms through the production of the final delivery forms, ensuring organism purity and viability at every step.

All Nutraceutix strains are naturally occurring and selected as appropriate and effective for human use. They are not genetically modified and have a long history of use in dietary supplements and food applications where they are generally recognized as safe (GRAS).

Patented LiveBac Processing for Extended Shelf Life Tablets and Caplets

Many probiotics found on store shelves fail to meet label claim and many of those have no viability at all by the time they are consumed. Over a decade of extensive research, development and testing of probiotic delivery forms has led to a number of exclusive patented processes that allow Nutraceutix to craft products with outstanding shelf-life performance, even at room temperature.

Patented BIO-tract Probiotic Delivery System Delivers the Goods

It’s a fact. Unprotected, the vast majority of live probiotics entering the stomach won’t survive to reach optimal sites in the gastrointestinal tract. To overcome this obstacle, Nutraceutix has researched, developed and patented the BIO-tract® delivery technology that protects the majority of a supplement’s probiotics from gastric acid, while providing optimal release of live organisms throughout the digestive tract.

Certified GMP Contract Manufacturing

All LiveBac® and BIO-tract products are produced in Nutraceutix’s NSF-certified GMP contract manufacturing facilities.
