Plandai's Phytofare Is the Smart Way to Go

BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/13 -- Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes that while much of the attention of the use of these nutrients is on wellness and disease prevention, Plandaí Biotechnology Inc.'s (OTCQB: PLPL) flagship product, Phytofare™ Catechin Complex, might prove its effectiveness in increasing our cognitive abilities as well.

Studies and research performed in the 1990's in recent years confirmed the fact that due to EGCG's ability to easily cross the blood brain barrier and increasing brain activity up to 2 hours after ingestion, EGCG's cognitive properties have been investigated in animal studies. When administered via IV to rats, EGCG statistical significance was witnessed at high doses one hour prior to a learning event. Plus, lower doses fed orally for eight weeks indicated an improvement in memory in aged rates.

Moreover, a study using a combination of green tea catechins and L-theanine, a constituent of green tea, demonstrated that patients suffering from non-clinical memory decline (average age 58) increasing recognition speed, word reading, and selective attention.

Clearly, whether EGCG is used alone or in conjunction with L-theanine, cognitive abilities can be aided via consumption of these nutrients. This opens up a whole new market for a company such as Plandaí that has demonstrated an ability to generate substantial bioavailability in botanical extracts, including green tea, which is key in leveraging the huge opportunity with Baby Boomers, the aging, and the younger set, which are prime targets for wellness and cognitive health.
