Pharmachem, Metagenics Announce Distribution Alliance for Unique Stress Response Formulations

KEARNY, NJ, MAY 18, 2007 – Pharmachem Laboratories Inc. today named Metagenics Inc., San Clemente, CA, as the exclusive distributor of nutraceutical formulas containing the all-natural ingredient LactiumPURE™, designed to support a healthy stress response, to healthcare professionals in North America, Australia, and New Zealand.

LactiumPURE has been shown in numerous published clinical studies to support relaxation and a healthy stress response. LactiumPURE is the professional-grade raw material only available to Metagenics for their professional healthcare clients.

“We’re excited to add the benefits of LactiumPURE to our family of mood and cognition formulas,” said Dr. Jeffrey S. Bland, PhD, Chief Science Officer and President of MetaProteomics—Metagenics nutrigenomic research center¾and internationally renowned nutritional biochemist. “LactiumPURE offers the powerful, fast-acting relaxation benefits of Lactium and has an excellent safety profile.”

Lactium was developed and patented by the French company, Ingredia, and is typically made with intact casein, a protein found in cow’s milk. Recently, scientists at Metagenics worked with Ingredia to develop LactiumPURE, a unique formula that is free of intact casein.

Pharmachem Laboratories is the exclusive distributor of Lactium within the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
“Metagenics’ acceptance of LactiumPURE into their family of supplements further validates Lactium’s safety and efficacy. And, with Metagenics’ expertise in the professional distribution channel, we can now directly reach doctors, pharmacists, and healthcare consumers with the advantages of LactiumPURE for supporting relaxation and a healthy stress response,” said Mitch Skop, Director of New Product Development for Pharmachem.
