Bioenergy Life Science -- The Ribose Company -- has announced that it has retained Xsto Solutions, LLC, to market Bioenergy D-Ribose(TM) in the Eastern U.S. D-Ribose is a naturally-occurring monosaccharide the body uses to stimulate the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) -- an essential energy compound.
"Collaborating with Xsto Solutions will enhance our efforts toward expanding D-Ribose into the marketplace," said Kathy Lund, vice president marketing and sales of Bioenergy Life Science, Ribose Ingredient Division. "D-Ribose is already included in over 100 functional foods and beverages. Aligning ourselves with Xsto Solutions means that more companies will incorporate this natural energy booster."
"Bioenergy D-Ribose is perhaps the most important nutritional discovery of the decade," says Dan Murray, Xsto Solutions vice president of business development. "We're very excited about aggressively expanding the exposure of D-Ribose within the supplement, functional foods and sports nutrition industries."
Although ribose is produced by the body naturally to regulate the synthesis of ATP, it cannot be replenished fast enough during certain forms of demanding exercise. When added to foods and dietary supplements, ribose enhances the body's natural process of energy synthesis. It helps reduce the loss of energy during stress and accelerates energy and tissue recovery.
Bioenergy, which recently achieved GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status for D-Ribose from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has amassed a large body of scientific literature regarding uses of ribose for people across all age and health categories. The company has more than 40,000 customers for its proprietary Corvalen(R) products alone, and millions worldwide use Bioenergy D-Ribose in other functional foods like energy bars (Detour, FastFuel, Marathon) and beverages (SoBe Adrenaline Rush, Vitamin Water, Snapple Antioxidant Water).
Bioenergy, Inc. ( http://www.bioenergy.com) is a privately held, Minneapolis-based life sciences company whose core technology lies in the development and commercialization of products based on the physiological benefits of D-Ribose for health and wellness. In addition to a pharmaceutical subsidiary, Bioenergy has two other companies. Bioenergy Life Science, Inc. manufactures and sells D-Ribose as an ingredient to nutraceutical firms for beverages and foods; as a medical food through doctors and clinics; and as a dietary supplement for energy recovery (reduces fatigue, muscle pain, soreness and stiffness following exercise). Viacell, LLC is developing technology related to the enhancement of blood components.
Xsto Solutions, LLC ( http://www.xstosolutions.com), was established in 2004 and is headquartered in Morristown, New Jersey. Xsto's core focus is bringing a small number of new science-supported nutritional ingredients to the dietary supplement and functional food market.
