Plandai Biotechnology, Inc. Announces Phytofare® Used as Key Ingredient in New Fat Burner Product

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jan 13, 2016) - Plandaí Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL) ("Plandaí" or "the Company"), producer of the highly bioavailable Phytofare® catechin complex, today announced that TNT Supplements recently launched their new product, TNT Fat Burner, in the United Kingdom. TNT contains a unique blend of ingredients that have never before been used in tandem, one of which is Plandaí's Phytofare® catechin complex. Phytofare® is a highly bioavailable green tea-based extract that is unique in having clinical data demonstrating ten times greater bioavailability over generic green tea extracts. Furthermore, Phytofare® consists of all eight catechins found in green tea, not just ECGC which is found in most weight loss products.

TNT performed an in-house study that began in March of 2015 called "TNT: Strong to the Core," in which 12 subjects were given four TNT capsules per day and asked to follow a moderate 3x a week exercise regimen and consume a normal calorie diet (2,000 a day for men, 1,500 for women). The results as reported by TNT were astounding with each of the 12 subjects losing significant weight and reducing body fat (2-3 lbs. average per week). One such subject lost a massive total of 70 lbs. (32kg) over the course of 18 weeks. While acknowledging that this was not a full clinical trial, TNT believes the results are nevertheless encouraging and merited the large-scale release of the product to the market.

Callum Cottrell-Duffield, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Plandaí Biotechnology, stated, "We at Plandaí are more than thrilled to be working with TNT Supplements on their TNT product, a company that prides itself of using only the highest quality ingredients that generate real results. The reported weight and fat loss from using TNT are phenomenal, and we consider this to be a truly remarkable breakthrough for people around the world who suffer from weight-related health issues."

TNT Supplements added the following statement, "Phytofare® made a huge impact in our TNT Fat Burner, and we are thrilled to have access to such an incredible product that helps us make TNT the best possible for our customers. We understand that not everyone is capable of an intense workout regimen and, frankly, no one enjoys drastic calorie restriction diets. The beauty of the Phytofare®-enhanced TNT Fat Burner is that tremendous results can be obtained from a moderate exercise program and a reasonable, healthy diet. We look forward to expanding sales of TNT outside the UK and into Europe and the US in the coming months."
