CHICAGO, IL—SourceOne Global Partners, a sales and marketing company providing proprietary branded nutritional ingredients to manufacturers and marketers, has announced the formation of a strategic partnership with Soft Gel Technologies, Inc. (SGTI), a leading manufacturer of soft gelatin capsule supplements. SGTI will become the exclusive manufacturer of soft gel capsules containing SourceOne’s patented compound Sytrinol.

According to Jesse R. Lopez, president and CEO of SourceOne Global Partners, SGTI has earned an outstanding and enduring reputation for building brand identity through a variety of health-promoting dietary supplements. “Soft Gel Technologies, Inc. has the research and product development capabilities to rapidly compose a soft gel delivery system for our patented product, Sytrinol. Because of its leadership in the area of technologically advanced soft gel production and its keen ability to build brands featuring soft gels throughout the natural products industry, SourceOne chose to partner with SGTI,” Lopez said.

The research and development technical staff of SGTI will work closely with customers to create new formulations featuring Sytrinol or help to expand existing product lines with this well-studied compound.

Ron Udell, president of SGTI, commented, “We believe that this alliance with SourceOne and its novel compound Sytrinol will provide brand marketers and consumers with the benefit of choice to consume a high-quality product for heart health in an easy-to-swallow soft gel. The science supporting Sytrinol is compelling, and we believe this patented product represents a natural solution for many cardiovascular concerns.”

Sytrinol, a patented proprietary formula derived from citrus and palm fruit extracts, is composed of polymethoxylated flavones and tocotrienols. Multiple clinical trials have demonstrated that Sytrinol acts synergistically to significantly reduce total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides by 25%, 22% and 28%, respectively. Additionally, Sytrinol is a powerful antioxidant with numerous heart health benefits including playing a significant role as an anti-inflammatory. Unlike other cholesterol-targeted supplements, Sytrinol is not diet specific and has no known side effects.* SourceOne owns the exclusive worldwide license for the intellectual property associated with Sytrinol.

SourceOne Global Partners represents a new breed of ingredient supplier, partnering with manufacturing clients to introduce powerfully branded, science-driven products to market with a unique product positioning and compelling consumer presence. SourceOne was conceived as a company whose core competence is to integrate legitimate science with strong trade and consumer branding. SourceOne Global Partners cultivates relationships with leading suppliers worldwide to source and offer patented ingredients supported by proprietary science as part of a turnkey marketing program that dramatically increases the odds for marketing success.

Soft Gel Technologies, Inc., headquartered in Commerce, CA, has a mission to provide the natural products industry with soft gelatin encapsulation that meets or exceeds the highest standards of quality, purity and performance. SGTI produces soft gels in its elegant state-of-the-art facilities that feature the most technologically advanced manufacturing equipment in the industry.
