AMERICAN FORK, Utah, September 6, 2006 - Wayne Geilman, Ph.D., senior research scientist at Pure Fruit Technologies, a Utah-based manufacturer of healthy exotic juice supplements, will be presenting an education session entitled "Nutraceutical Juices: Why Now?" at the Canadian Health Food Association's Expo East trade show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Friday, September 8, 2006 from 11:00 - 11:45 a.m. in room 206B.
Fruit has always been an important part of the human diet, but only recently has science begun to document the numerous effects that highly colored fruits can have on human health. The strong antioxidant power of many uncommon or exotic fruits has recently earned them the name of "super fruits." In this session, Dr. Geilman will discuss the unique characteristics of several exotic super fruits that have recently come to the North American marketplace, including mangosteen, gac, seabuckthorn and goji, as well as present scientific research supporting their health benefits.
Pure Fruit Technologies will also be showcasing their new potent exotic fruit juice-based supplements at the show, including Gac-Chi(TM) Heart & Vision Formula, Seabuck-7(TM) Rejuvenation Formula and Goji-Zen(TM) Longevity Formula. Each product combines a distinct blend of juices that deliver unique health benefits including increased energy and stamina, enhanced cell regeneration and improved digestion. The company will also be displaying new packaging for its flagship product, Mango-xan(R) Antioxidant Recovery Formula.
