Bioenergy Ribose Makes Friends at Nutracon and Natural Products Expo West

ANAHEIM, CA – March 3, 2011 – Recently, Bioenergy Ribose® has been finding a lot of support from the media and medical professionals, with several recent mentions in First for Women and support from leading doctors including Dr. Reza Kamarei, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum and Dr. Stephen Sinatra. At Nutracon and Natural Products Expo West 2011 Bioenergy Life Science, Inc. will be demonstrating that Ribose makes a great friend, with the release of new Ribose Plus prototype formulations and the launch of the brand’s Facebook page.

“Ribose makes a great friend because it mixes well with other supplements, and, because it is often used in powder form, it is easy to include as a part of a normal diet,” says Tom VonderBrink, President of Bioenergy Life Science, Inc. “At Nutracon and Natural Products Expo West, we are highlighting the friendly nature of Ribose by simultaneously unveiling Ribose Plus prototype formulations, featuring D-Ribose combined with complementary natural supplements, and launching our new Facebook page.”

Due to the fact that it is stable, soluble and affirmed by the Food and Drug Administration as being GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe), Bioenergy Ribose readily combines with a wide array of other supplements. Bioenergy’s Ribose Plus prototypes will include D-Ribose for improved energy, cardiac function, tolerance to physical stress and weight management and now blends well with each of the following supplements:

  • Caffeine, in a liquid shot, for improved energy, focus and mood;
  • Carnitine, in a tea straw, for more efficient energy utilization, heart health, weight management, cognitive wellness, and healthy aging;
  • CoQ10, in an oatmeal, for improved cardiac and cognitive functioning as well as antioxidant benefits;
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids, in an oatmeal and a coffee creamer, for cardiovascular and mental wellness;
  • Taurine, in a powerpack, for cardiovascular wellness, weight management and antioxidant benefits.

Bioenergy Life Science, Inc. is launching its Facebook page to coincide with the launch of the Ribose Plus line of supplements to demonstrate exactly how friendly D-Ribose can be. Bioenergy will be sharing health and fitness tips, updates on Bioenergy sponsored athletes, and information about new products that included ribose with all its Facebook friends.

“Demonstrating realistic and feasible consumer applications for Ribose is exciting enough on its own, but when it is combined with the launch of a new social media venture, it has even greater significance,” says Gabe Herrick, Sales Manager Supplements & Sports Nutrition at Bioenergy, will manage the Facebook application. “From new supplement combinations to new supplement users, we expect Bioenergy Ribose to make a lot of new friends in Anaheim and beyond.”
