Partnership quadruples distribution of Corvalen(R) (D-ribose) products to health practitioners
MINNEAPOLIS, and GREEN BAY, Wis., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ — Bioenergy Life Science — The Ribose Company, and Integrative Therapeutics, Inc. (ITI), a division of Enzymatic Therapy Inc. (ETI), today announced that they have entered into an exclusive co-marketing alliance. ITI will now sell the Corvalen(R) line of products, developed by Bioenergy Life Science, to its established health care practitioners.
Corvalen(R) is a medical food containing pure, proprietary D-ribose, a unique sugar made by the body to synthesize many important compounds, including DNA, RNA, and, most importantly, ATP, the “energy currency” of the cells. ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is critical to health and maintaining normal energy-dependent body functions. Ribose is the essential component in the making of ATP and as a medical food, Corvalen(R) is prescribed and used under the direction of a licensed healthcare practitioner.
Clinical research has shown that Corvalen(R) can help effectively manage diseases in which there is a deficiency in energy (i.e., ATP). D-Ribose has already been shown to increase functional capacity for patients with congestive heart failure (CHF), decrease fatigue caused by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FMS), and enhance energy for athletes and others who need a natural boost.
“We are terrifically enthused about advancing the entire science of wellness with Bioenergy Life Science as our alliance partner,” said Randy Rose, president and CEO of Enzymatic Therapy, Inc. “The research and product development synergies we have together will bring a number of patient and consumer health solutions forward that dramatically improve the quality of life for many.”
Tom VonderBrink, president and chief operating officer of Bioenergy Life Science, concurred. “We are thrilled about the agreement with this quality leading company as it quadruples the number of representatives educating health care practitioners on the value of this significant emerging therapy,” he said. “D-ribose is already changing the lives of many suffering from chronic energy-depleting conditions. It’s also improving the quality of life for baby boomers as they reach the prime of their lives. Our collaboration will mean that more people will have access to this exciting breakthrough.”
Research published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (12:9, 2006, 35-40) suggests that Corvalen(R) (D-ribose) provides metabolic support to accelerate cellular energy recovery and normal cellular functioning for patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia. “The research helped us pinpoint the energy-building benefit of Corvalen(R), and how it substantially reduces the debilitating symptoms of these devastating conditions,” said Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, board-certified internist and author of the pilot study. “I think this study, and follow-up research now underway, will show Corvalen(R) to be one of the most important new nutrients evaluated over the next few years.”
