LifeVantage Corporation, a science-based, natural products company, dedicated to helping people reach their health and wellness goals through science-based solutions to oxidative stress and a maker of Protandim(R), announced preliminary unaudited net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009. The Company anticipates net revenue of approximately $1.6M for the three month period ended June 30, 2009, which is an approximate increase of 150% from the net revenue of approximately $0.65M for the three month period ended March 31, 2009. This substantial increase in revenue demonstrates the early results of the Company's recent expansion into the network marketing distribution model.
"The increase in fourth quarter revenue is attributed to our launch earlier this year into network marketing as well as the addition of a team of some of the most sought after and highest producing independent distributors in the network marketing industry. We believe this team will continue to significantly impact LifeVantage's continued expansion into the network marketing sales channel," stated David W. Brown, LifeVantage President & CEO.
About LifeVantage Corporation
LifeVantage Corporation is a publicly traded, science-based, natural products company, dedicated to helping people reach their health and wellness goals through science-based solutions to oxidative stress.

Protandim(R) is a groundbreaking, clinically proven supplement that provides substantial benefits to help with the challenges of healthy aging. This patented antioxidant therapy works in a very different way than conventional foods such as red wine, oranges, blueberries or other popular antioxidant supplements; as a result, according to Dr. Joe McCord, it is much more effective than those products or foods in reducing oxidative stress. Protandim(R) works by increasing the body's natural antioxidant protection at the cellular level, triggering (inducing) cells to produce naturally occurring protective antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione synthase. Dr. McCord is a pioneer scientist in the field of oxidative stress and is on the Company's Board of Directors.
A peer-reviewed human clinical study showed that after Protandim(R) was taken for 30 consecutive days, the accumulation of lipid peroxidation products (a biochemical marker of aging) was decreased by an average of 40%, although that reduction may be not be typical for all those who consume the product. The study also reported that this important marker of aging was decreased after taking Protandim(R) to the level of a typical 20-year-old. Protandim(R) is currently the subject of approximately 20 scientific studies at leading universities and research facilities. The nature and stages of the studies vary, as some of the testing is at the preliminary stage, while other studies using Protandim(R) are currently in progress.
