iSatori Presents Latest Clinical Data on the Impact of Bio-Gro™ Bio-Active Peptides on Lean Body Mass Development, Strength Increases, and Safety Profile

iSatori Continues to Invest in the Science and Application of Their Category-Creating Bio-Active Peptides Bio-Gro™ Supplement and Prepares to Present Their Most Recent Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Randomized Clinical Trial Results at the National ISSN and NSCA Scientific Conferences -- to Reveal the Supplement's Impact on Muscular Performance and Safety

GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwired - June 10, 2015) - iSatori, Inc. (OTCQB: IFIT), an emerging leader in the development and marketing of scientifically engineered nutritional supplements for healthier lifestyles, today announced the recent clinical research results on one of their flagship supplements, Bio-Gro™ Bio-Active Peptides, with three study abstracts to be presented at the upcoming International Society of Sports Nutrition Conference in Austin, Texas, on June 11 - June 13, 2015, and the National Strength and Conditioning Association National Conference on July 8 - 11, 2015, in Orlando, Florida.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, eight-week study led by principal investigator Patrick Jacobs, Ph.D., at the Superior Performance Research Group in Miami, Florida, iSatori's Bio-Gro™ Bio-Active Peptides was firmly solidified as a truly efficacious and safe sports supplement.

"Scientific evidence is one of our company's top core values, so naturally we decided to focus our efforts to further study this category-defining innovation, Bio-Gro™ bio-active peptides," explained iSatori founder and CEO, Stephen Adelé. "After these two scientific conferences, we will have five clinical study abstracts from double-blind, placebo-controlled studies -- considered to be the 'gold standard' of clinical research -- to further our understanding and applications of this exciting new supplement."

The first-ever study on bio-active peptides to measure performance enhancement was sponsored by iSatori and conducted at the prestigious University of Central Florida under the expert guidance of Jeffrey Stout, Ph.D., along with his experienced team of exercise physiologists. The intent of the study was to verify the minimum amount of Bio-Gro™ needed to elicit a positive effect on muscular performance characteristics, during short-term resistance training with men, and was presented at the annual ISSN conference in 2014.

"The results of our original study were exactly what we were hoping for," said iSatori Marketing VP, Craig Stevenson. "They showed positive trends on virtually every area investigated. Beyond the recovery, strength, and increased training volume seen with the Bio-Gro™ group, a positive change in muscular pennation angle was also observed. This was the true indicator that Bio-Gro™ -- even at minimal levels -- would push human physiology to increase strength, improve recovery, and build more lean muscle."

To further their research commitment, iSatori commissioned a second clinical study with the Superior Performance Research Group in Miami, Florida. Patrick Jacobs, Ph.D., was the principal investigator studying dose-dependent levels of Bio-Gro™ (the same dosing as on the Bio-Gro bottle) on experienced weight-training men. Mr. Adelé commented, "The results of this eight-week double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study firmly solidified Bio-Gro as a truly efficacious sports supplement. We couldn't be more excited about the results of this study and believe it provides consumers with the utmost confidence that iSatori backs its products with legitimate scientific evidence."

A brief overview of the results from this eight-week (Jacobs, et al.) study demonstrated some exceptional results, which in summary included:

  • 6.3 pound increase of total body mass: +125% vs. placebo
  • 0.7 inch increase in muscle size (arm circumference): +130% vs. placebo
  • Significant increase in 1RM (one rep max) Leg Press strength: +117% vs. placebo
  • Significant increase in 1RM Bench Press strength: +313% vs. placebo
  • Does not promote fat gain
  • Comprehensive hemodynamic, blood, and safety profile

"The results of this most recent study firmly solidify Bio-Gro™ as the only choice for muscle- and strength-building bio-active peptides. This new sports nutrition category is gaining momentum that can only be comparable to the likes of creatine, nitric oxide, and BCAA's," added Mr. Stevenson.
