Applied Food Sciences, LLC Announced: Patented Calcium D-Glucarate Featured in Muscle and Fitness Magazine

AUSTIN, Texas - March 11, 2002 - Applied Food Sciences, LLC (AFS™ Monday announced the review of its patented Calcium D-Glucarate in Muscle and Fitness magazine, the preeminent source of information for super fitness and health.

Calcium D-Glucarate (CDG) was featured in Brian Rowley's column, "Lab Notes," in the April 2002 issue of Muscle and Fitness magazine. The article focused on the following attributes of CDG:

-- CDG could conceivably reduce water retention (bloat) and body fat.

-- CDG is likely to reduce muscle-destroying cortisol in men, the net result of which could be less muscle loss while dieting.

-- CDG is naturally found in fruits and vegetables such as apples, grapefruits and broccoli.

-- CDG enhances the elimination of excess steroids only - those your body has already decided to get rid of - and a dramatic testosterone-lowering effect isn't expected.

"We are very excited that the extensive research related to CDG's ability to enable the body to better eliminate unwanted substances is being well received by the bodybuilding and fitness communities," said Loretta Zapp, chief executive officer of AFS. "Dr. Rowley has broad experience in understanding how excess hormones and toxins play a negative role in building muscle mass.

"We are pleased that he clearly sees the benefit that CDG has in this area of fitness."

According to Lyndon Johnson, vice president of sales and marketing for AFS, "We have always felt bodybuilders have been one of the first channels of trade to discover the power of new products like CDG. Furthermore, we feel that the health benefits of CDG will be fully discovered by all channels of trade within the next six months."
