Plandai Primed to Fight Colon Cancer

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, notes that due to the high absorption rates in its flagship offerings, Plandai Biotechnology Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL) may soon enter the colon cancer fighting arena.

The American Cancer Society estimates that this year 142,820 people will be diagnosed with and 50,830 will die from colon cancer in the U.S. The disease is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. Still, studies have shown that certain substances and nutrients may be beneficial to fighting colon cancer.

For example, carotenoids are substances found in fruits that give them their respective bright colors, such as tomatoes and oranges. In published studies, carotenoids have demonstrated an ability to provide nutrients beneficial in fighting colon cancer. For example, Lutein, a compound that is found in 600 or so naturally-occurring carotenoids, has been shown to have the greatest effect in the fight. Data from several American Journal of Medicine studies have shown that subjects who incorporated meaningful quantities of carotenoid and lutein foods into their diet such as spinach, broccoli, lettuce, tomatoes, oranges, carrots, and celery have been clearly aided in reducing their risk of developing colon cancer.

Plandai's Phytofare Carotenoid Botanical Extract is a unique product that harnesses the beneficial effects of these nutrients due to Plandai's unique and advanced extraction process and absorption into the circulatory system which enables absorption and bioavailability many times greater than other extraction and delivery systems. Therefore, this extract could potentially emerge as the carotenoid extract of choice for manufacturers in the nutraceutical and foods arenas.

As part of Plandai's objective of producing and marketing highly bioavailable ingredients that have proven benefits to immune health and the prevention of diseases and conditions, the Company plans to market this product sometime in 2014. This is good news not just for the health conscious consumer, but for those actively seeking to use products that offer the greatest absorption rate in their quest to prevent the onset of disease and cancer.
