TR International Signs Exclusive Distributorship with Shanghai Jiubang for Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate

Alpharetta, GA., November 4, 2005-- TR International today announced that they have acquired the exclusive distribution rights from Shanghai Jiubang for Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate in the U.S. marketplace. Shanghai Jiubang is a manufacturer of active pharmaceutical and nutritional supplements.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) acts primarily as an enzyme catalyst in many body functions including energy metabolism, neurotransmitter functions. Before it can be used for this purpose it must be converted into its coenzyme form from the liver. P-5-P eliminates this step by providing B6 in its converted form, allowing for greater bioavailability.

Vice President Nick Bain commented “Customers now have a proven quality alternative to the European material with a substantial cost savings.”

TR International is a raw material supplier and manufacturer representative of vitamins, botanical extracts, and specialty ingredients. TR International will be one of the sponsors at the upcoming Supply-Side West Conference in Las Vegas. For more information go to, or contact Marketing Director Katie Ferren at (404) 935-5761 x515.
