GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - iSatori, Inc. (OTCQB: IFIT), www.isatori.com, an emerging leader in the development and marketing of scientifically engineered nutritional supplements for healthier lifestyles, today announced impressive growth of Bio-Gro™, a category-defining product that uses a new creation called "bio-active peptides" to enhance physical performance, strength, and muscular development.
Stephen Adele, founder and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Launched only a year ago in May of 2013, Bio-Gro™ has exceeded our expectations by tenfold, and we are optimistic about its future opportunities as we remain committed to drive its growth while we build out an entirely new sports supplement category."
From third quarter 2013 through fourth quarter 2013, sales of Bio-Gro™ increased by 280.0%. And now, since GNC, America's largest sports supplement retailer, began carrying Bio-Gro™ in January 2014, sales have increased by an additional estimated 11.2% and continue to grow week after week. Bio-Gro™ is now the number one top seller in its category on GNC.com.
Based on Bio-Gro's recent success in retail, Mr. Adele was interviewed by Leslie Stone about the product and its longer term potential for iSatori in a recent edition of The Opportunist magazine. You can view the entire interview article here: http://opportunistmagazine.com/stephen-adele-name/
Bio-Gro™ competes within the enormous segment of nutritional supplements called sports nutrition, which, according to the Nutrition Business Journal, has grown at 10.0% annually in the past year and has estimated market sales valued at $4.4 billion. As a brand new category called "bio-active peptides," within sports nutrition, Bio-Gro™ has set the stage for continued growing interest from retailers and consumers alike.
Executive VP of Sales at iSatori, Rick Anderson, added, "The growing demand for Bio-Gro™ has made it a challenge to keep the product in stock. Despite these challenges, we've been fortunate to expand distribution of Bio-Gro™ in several new international markets, and we are eager to launch new line extensions for Bio-Gro™ to further expand its footprint in the retail stores and give consumers more choices for using Bio-Gro™."
Customers can now find Bio-Gro™ in eight different countries outside the U.S., including India, UAE, Greece, Australia, Canada, Italy, Iceland, and New Zealand; and domestically, Bio-Gro™ is featured on top retail sites like GNC.com, bodybuilding.com, tigerfitness.com, muscleandstrength.com, campusprotein.com and hundreds more.
