Plandai’s Flagship Product Demonstrates
There are a number of companies that have conducted studies and tests on catechins found in green tea extracts. To date, many of these studies have demonstrated efficacy of the catechins to potentially treat various diseases and conditions. Still, the potential effectiveness of these products has proven to be somewhat muted due to the limitations inherent in the bioavailability of the active ingredients to be absorbed into the bloodstream. However, that long-standing limitation may now be a thing of the past based on extremely positive test results generated by the flagship product designed by Plandai Biotechnology Inc. (OTCQB – PLPL $0.515 – Spec Buy). Plandai is a developer of highly bioavailable, phytonutrient rich extracts utilized to deliver a new family of drugs to safely and affordably treat a multitude of diseases and conditions.
Just last week, the Company announced incredible results from its second round of in vitro testing of Phytofare™ Catechin Complex, used to kill the malaria parasite plasmodium falciparum. The results of this independent investigation confirmed a twelve-times greater efficacy in killing the parasite. It should be noted that in this round the Company elected to use the complete Phytofare™ complex and not just the isolated EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate) catechin used in earlier studies.
Clearly, these results show the effectiveness of using a commercial botanical extract, rather than purified extract of EGCG catechin, as an anti-malarial. Moreover, the data may serve as a major boon to treating a disease which potentially impacts hundreds of millions of people and kills 600,000 in the African continent alone. However, a key takeaway of these results is the notion that confirms Plandai’s offerings provide the greatest efficacy of green tea catechins in the industry and this substantial antioxidant activity can potentially be formulated to treat and protect many other immune system conditions in addition to malaria.
To that end, management plans to complete a commercial delivery system by encapsulating Phytofare™ Catechin Complex into a proprietary nano-delivery system that is expected to deliver improved absorption and protection against gut metabolization, allowing super antioxidants to remain protected and intact until they reach the bloodstream.
In addition, further independent scientific investigations of Phytofare™ Catechin Complex in powder and nano-encapsulated forms will be undertaken both in vitro and in mouse models to validate the extract for oral consumption as an antimalarial drug target and in topical formulations for anti-aging and other applications as well.
With substantial absorption advantages, the innovative delivery system under development and the potential adaptability of its core offerings for the prevention and treatment of a multitude of conditions, Plandaí is poised to serve as a supplier of the next generation of improved nutraceutical ingredients.
