Biotec Foods Announces Branded Ingredient IsoSproutPlex : Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Catalase (CAT) Agonist

IsoSproutPlex promotes intercellular SOD1 (CU/ZN SOD) and mitochondrial SOD or SOD2 (MnSOD) by up-regulating antioxidant enzyme gene expression.

    /24-7PressRelease/ - HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA, November 01, 2006 - Agrigenic Food Company, manufacturers of the renowned Biotec Foods , Biomed Foods and Biovet International lines of dietary supplements announced the launch of IsoSproutPlex , a branded ingredient to be offered to third-party dietary supplement formulators and manufacturing firms. The proprietary blend of probiotic sprouts has a well documented history of safety and efficacy as an antioxidant enzyme agonist. IsoSproutPlex increases the body's own production of key antioxidant enzymes including superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione peroxidase (GP). "The proprietary blend in IsoSproutPlex has been our core technology and is responsible for our own product line's commercial success as well as it longevity in the marketplace," said Robert Kavanaugh, Agrigenic's President

The Biotec Foods line of supplements includes the best selling antioxidant enzymes Cell Guard , Anti-Stress Enzymes , Ageless Beauty , Extra-Energy Enzymes and Jet Stress . Biotec Foods' supplements are sold through the independent and national chain health food stores including The Vitamin Shoppe since 1983. Biotec Foods products are recommended by publications including "The Prescription of Nutritional Healing" series written by Phyllis Balch, "The Nutrition Solution" by Kristal and Haig,, "Every Person's Guide to Antioxidants" by Smyties "Radiation Protection Manual" by Dr. Lita Lee and "Jet Smart" by Diana Fairechild.

The Biomed Foods line of supplements includes SOD/CAT , AOX/PLX , GP/CAT MET/CAT and Synovalex and is available only through medical professionals including chiropractors, naturopaths, and other health practitioners.
The Biovet International line of animal supplements includes Dismutase , Feline Support , Canine Support and the Antioxidant Pet Wafer . "Our Biovet products are recommended in a number of publications including, "The Nature of Animal Healing" by Martin Goldstein, "Natural Cat Care" by Yarnall "Keep Your Dog Healthy the Natural Way" and "Keep Your Cat Healthy the Natural Way" by Pat Lazarus.

"We are pleased to offer our IsoSproutPlex as a branded ingredient for compounding by others in the dietary supplement community. Although we have historically made our proprietary blend of antioxidant agonists available to industry, this will be the first time we will offer the product as a trademarked-brand. We recognize the growth and success of branded ingredients in the dietary supplement business and we launch our new brand awareness campaign beginning in January," said Kavanaugh.

IsoSproutPlex is a proprietary blend of probiotic or "live" sprouts. Research shows that our cells generate an increasing number of free-radicals as we age. Free radicals contribute to the scourge of age-related disease and decline. IsoSproutPlex integrates naturally occurring micro flora with special plant-based nutrients called polyphenols, flavones and isoflavones. Recently published, independent third-party research documents the mechanism behind this novel antioxidant enzyme agonist. "It's actually the interaction of the micro flora and the polyphenols during absorption that results in upgraded metabolites and an unequaled superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) agonist. Recently published articles in the Journal of Free Radical Biology and Medicine have confirmed the mechanism responsible for this technology's long-running biological and commercial success as an antioxidant enzyme agonist," commented Kavanaugh.

Supplementing with IsoSproutPlex promotes intercellular SOD1 (CU/ZN SOD) and mitochondrial SOD or SOD2 (MnSOD) by up-regulating antioxidant enzyme gene expression. The mechanism includes metabolizing flavones and isoflavones resulting in a phytoestrogen with a well documented high affinity for a specific estrogen receptor site known as beta. The biological result is a signaling cascade that dramatically increases endogenous SOD and CAT production.

Internally generated antioxidants provide far greater protection against the effects of oxidative stress than antioxidant nutrients. One of the most important antioxidant enzymes in humans is superoxide dismutase (SOD). Numerous studies correlate diminished SOD levels with health problems, suggesting that abundant SOD promotes longer life. IsoSproutPlex has been shown to boost levels of SOD and other antioxidant enzymes. IsoSproutPlex supports healthy cell function and reduces inflammation.

IsoSproutPlex strengthens a person's defenses against oxidative stress by increasing the body's natural antioxidant enzymes. For more information, please visit the IsoSproutPlex product web site at
