Natreon and Maypro Sign Exclusive Distribution Agreement For Key Asian Markets

13-June ‘2008 New Brunswick, NJ- Maypro and Natreon have entered into an exclusive agreement to develop major Asian markets for the proprietary ingredients produced by Natreon. Those ingredients include:

Capros® is a patented, clinically researched nutritional supplement ingredient developed to provide significant antioxidant benefits inside and out. Derived from a highly purified and standardized extract of the unique antioxidant superfruit Phyllanthus emblica, Capros® is the ultimate superfruit extract obtained by a proprietary process, which guarantees optimized levels of bio-actives to provide a broad range of health benefits. It is especially effective in combating oxidative stress throughout the body, especially the skin.

Sensoril®, an extract of Withania somnifera, has been shown to significantly reduce stress-related parameters and cardiovascular risk in well-controlled clinical studies published in peer reviewed journals. Sensoril® has been formulated in leading beverage and nutritional supplement brands in North America.

PrimaVie™ (highly purified Shilajit) is the most revered remedy in Ayurveda. Little was known about this high mountain herb/mineral compound outside of India until the early 1900's when Russian scientists brought it to the western world. Russian Black Anabolic, as they called it, is a potent adaptagenic herbal complex used to increase strength and muscle mass as well as for its recuperative powers. Moreover, in controlled studies men with low sperm count taking PrimaVie™ experienced, greatly improved semen quality, increased libido, and a 70% increase in serum testosterone levels.

Crominex® 3+ is a chromium supplement composition wherein Cr3+ is complexed with Capros® and PrimaVie™, which enables chromium to remain in the 3+ form (not 6+) in the body for improved safety.
