LOS ANGELES, CA, October 6, 2004 – Soft Gel Technologies, Inc.® (SGTI®) introduced WasabiSol™, a unique Wasabia japonica-based soft gel formula for detoxification and immune support, at the SupplySide West trade show. Wasabia japonica is the most potent source of long chain isothiocyanates, natural compounds found in foods such as broccoli and cabbage, which support Phase I and Phase II detoxification in the liver and promote specific immune functions. Wasabia japonica’s activities were explained by Nicholas Bruns, Ph.D. during a Vendorworks presentation at SupplySide West on September 30th.
Soft Gel Technologies, Inc.® has aligned with B&D Nutritional Ingredients, Inc. and Clearwater Wasabi, Inc. to bring this powerful new ingredient to the dietary supplement industry. SGTI® has been designated as the exclusive soft gelatin encapsulator of Wasabia japonica for Clearwater Wasabi, Inc. and is the only manufacturer of WasabiSol™. SGTI® developed WasabiSol™ to protect and preserve Wasabia japonica’s sensitive active compounds until they are effectively delivered to the body.
SGTI® President Ron Udell remarked, “WasabiSol™ is a valuable addition to the portfolio of products available exclusively from SGTI®. We feel that the market is ready for a detoxification ingredient that is both cost-effective and research-backed. This new product strengthens SGTI®’s position as a leading source for clinically proven nutraceuticals. SGTI® is committed to providing the natural products industry with unique and effective ingredients and is forging partnerships to facilitate this goal.”
