Pharmachem Laboratories Inc. (PLI) and Soft Gel Technologies, Inc.® (SGTI® ) have reached an agreement to incorporate PLI’s Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer® into soft gelatin capsules exclusively through SGTI®. Phase 2 will be available as part of custom formulations for SGTI® customers. In addition, Phase 2 is an integral component of an innovative formula containing conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and GlucoTrim®, SGTI®’s patented and clinically proven weight loss aid.
“We’ve developed a proprietary method for encapsulating Phase 2, CLA and GlucoTrim® and are excited by the weight loss potential of this novel combination,” said Kenn Israel SGTI® Director of Marketing. “We’re already in discussions with some of our strategic partners and I would expect to actively be involved in a number of markets within the next few months.”
Made from an extract of the white kidney bean, Phase 2 is used in a variety of weight control supplements sold worldwide, and is now available in soft gelatin capsules manufactured exclusively by SGTI®. Phase 2 “neutralizes” the enzyme responsible for metabolizing starches during the digestive process and allows carbohydrates to pass through the system before the calories are converted to fat.
“We’re delighted to be working with Soft Gel Technologies in the introduction of Phase 2 in some of their leading products,” said Mitch Skop, director of product development for Pharmachem. “We look forward to teaming up with another leader in the nutraceuticals industry and reaching a variety of new markets.”
