BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, September 6, 2005 - BioLogic Health Solutions Pty Ltd., an Australia-based company whose mission is to research, develop and promote a range of well-researched natural products that improve the quality of people's lives, today announced the results of recent laboratory testing which revealed that the company's branded urinary incontinence ingredient, UroLogic (TM), has broad antioxidant properties. UroLogic underwent Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC), Hydroxyl Radical Scavenging Ability (HORAC) and Peroxynitrite Radical Scavenging Ability (NORAC) testing which indicated high antioxidant activity, and further in-vitro studies demonstrated it had a substantial inhibitory effect on the Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) formation in human neutrophil cells.
"These study results confirm that UroLogic offers additional health benefits, above and beyond its ability to help with both stress and urge incontinence associated with aging and childbirth," stated Debra Seipel, managing director, BioLogic Health Solutions. "Numerous studies have shown that antioxidants are essential in guarding against all-types of diseases, and consuming UroLogic can provide this secondary benefit to its users."
UroLogic reported a very high ORAC value. The ORAC assay determines free radical scavenging activity against the peroxyl radical for both water-soluble and lipid-soluble substances. UroLogic's high HORAC and NORAC value demonstrates its free radical scavenging ability against peroxynitrite and hydroxyl radicals, which are found in high levels in individuals suffering from neuro-degenerative diseases. This is especially noteworthy given the fact that many pharmaceutical drugs currently used to treat urinary incontinence have side effects of memory loss.
The proprietary natural formula in UroLogic contains the Western herb Horsetail, traditionally used to address the symptoms of urinary incontinence, and the Ayurvedic herb Crateva, that assists bladder tone, combined with added minerals to support nerve transmission. This unique ingredient has demonstrated positive results in human clinical research and testing and has been shown to be effective in addressing both stress and urge incontinence associated with aging and childbirth.
BioLogic Health Solutions, founded in 1999, is an Australia-based company who launched several proprietary branded ingredients in the U.S. in early 2005. All products at BioLogic Health Solutions are developed based on holistic, natural therapy principles with the added security of scientific research. The company conducts ongoing research with institutions around the world, including the Australian College of Natural Medicine (ACNM) and the Brisbane-based Applied Science and Nutrition Research, to ensure the highest levels of efficacy for addressing very specific health concerns. Studies on BioLogic products are currently underway in the U.S., Australia and Scotland.
