MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 11 Bioenergy Life Science -- The RiboseCompany -- has announced that it has retained Xsto Solutions, LLC, to marketBioenergy D-Ribose(TM) in the Eastern U.S. D-Ribose is a naturally-occurringmonosaccharide the body uses to stimulate the synthesis of adenosinetriphosphate (ATP) -- an essential energy compound.
"Collaborating with Xsto Solutions will enhance our efforts towardexpanding D-Ribose into the marketplace," said Kathy Lund, vice presidentmarketing and sales of Bioenergy Life Science, Ribose Ingredient Division."D-Ribose is already included in over 100 functional foods and beverages.Aligning ourselves with Xsto Solutions means that more companies willincorporate this natural energy booster."
"Bioenergy D-Ribose is perhaps the most important nutritional discovery ofthe decade," says Dan Murray, Xsto Solutions vice president of businessdevelopment. "We're very excited about aggressively expanding the exposure ofD-Ribose within the supplement, functional foods and sports nutritionindustries."
Although ribose is produced by the body naturally to regulate thesynthesis of ATP, it cannot be replenished fast enough during certain forms ofdemanding exercise. When added to foods and dietary supplements, riboseenhances the body's natural process of energy synthesis. It helps reduce theloss of energy during stress and accelerates energy and tissue recovery.
Bioenergy, which recently achieved GRAS (generally recognized as safe)status for D-Ribose from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has amassed alarge body of scientific literature regarding uses of ribose for people acrossall age and health categories. The company has more than 40,000 customers forits proprietary Corvalen(R) products alone, and millions worldwide useBioenergy D-Ribose in other functional foods like energy bars (Detour,FastFuel, Marathon) and beverages (SoBe Adrenaline Rush, Vitamin Water,Snapple Antioxidant Water).
