Industry titans gather at 2014 Food Ingredients China

FIC 1

Last month’s FIC China, held March 25-27 at the Shanghai World Expo and Convention Center, was yet another opportunity for the industry’s global giants to learn more about ribose. Michael Crabtree CPT/CSCS, ISSN, CISSN, technical sales manager for Bioenergy Life Science, attended. He had many opportunities to talk about the U.S. ribose market with many attendees who stopped by the booth of our parent company, Chengzhi Life Science.

FIC China is the Asia-Pacific region’s key food event, and one of the largest gatherings of domestic and foreign industry supply chain entities. The show floor featured 300 foreign and 800 domestic companies, ranging from food technologists to trading and communications companies. “Each bay of the convention center was fast-paced and full of assorted natural materials, extracts, and food products to be marketed in the local and global market,” Crabtree reports.

“Astonishingly, there were 21 separate categories of food additives, 33 categories of food ingredients, plus engineering machinery, and myriad products and services. The show also served as an international academic conference spanning industry experts from 17 countries including the United States.”

Crabtree joined such notable attendees as representatives from Mitsubishi, Pepsi, Coca Cola, Cargill, Wild Flavors, Doehler Food, Dupont Nutrition and Dow Chemical. “These companies represent the titans of the international food market, and are seen at food shows across the planet,” he comments. “Whether your objective is to launch new products, gather leads, distribute samples or sell product, FIC is rife with business contacts.”

What’s in JJ Virgin’s gym bag?

It’s no surprise that Bioenergy Ribose is a must-have in JJ Virgin’s gym bag. This fitness and nutrition expert, who is also a New York Times best-selling author, has embraced a natural approach to health throughout her high-profile career.

“Bioenergy Ribose helps muscles recover faster, so there’s less stiffness and soreness. When I work out, I bring my Virgin Diet All-in-One protein powder with a teaspoon of ribose in a blender bottle. I just add water for a great recovery shake.” She adds that if you are traveling, you can easily pre-sort this combo in little plastic bags.

Everyone from Dr. Phil to high-performance athletes and A-list celebrities have relied on JJ’s expertise. A board certified nutrition specialist, she is also board certified in holistic nutrition and a certified nutrition and fitness specialist.

The contents of JJ’s gym bag also include:
• Dehydrated or low-roasted almonds to stave off hunger. “If you don’t like almonds, you can substitute other nuts.”
• Rhodiola rosea: “This helps fight stress and fatigue. It’s a great workout booster!”
• A super-light pair of Nike or New Balance gym shoes.
• Lululemon workout pants. “I prefer lightweight clothing that doesn’t weigh me down as I’m working out.”

And JJ’s best training tip? “Consider burst training. Scheduling an hour for aerobics class in your already-loaded schedule only creates more stress for both your mind and body. According to Charles Poliquin, aerobic exercise raises cortisol (your stress hormone), accelerates aging and lowers testosterone. Burst training is the efficient, effective antidote to an hours-long gym routine that you can do in just minutes. I love to combine it with weight resistance for the two best kinds of exercise on the planet. You can get both with my 4 x 4 Workout, which fits into your busiest schedule: You can knock the whole thing out in just 15 minutes, three times a week.”

Olympian Laura Bennett’s tips for easing yourself out of winter hibernation

After a harsh winter, we’re finally starting to see glimpses of spring. Many of us become more active as the temperatures rise, busy with everything from outdoor sports to gardening. We asked Team Ribose member, Olympian and multiple world championship medalist Laura Bennett, for her tips on getting back into shape.

“If you have had some time off (from your fitness routine), it is important to make sure you get back into exercise slow and cautiously,” she advises. “For example, set up a routine of exercising every day but starting out slowly and conservatively.”

For example, if your exercise is running, Bennett suggests a schedule of walking and running. “Program your stop watch to one-minute run, one-minute walk. Try to build up your total time to an hour each day. So on day one, do a total of 20 minutes. Day two would be 30 minutes, day three: 40 minutes. Day four would be a day off. Then on day five, aim for 50 minutes. Day six, go back to 40 minutes. Then on day seven, set a goal of 60 minutes.

Bennett encourages you to listen to your body, and adjust your goals accordingly as you build up your stamina. “Remember that daily intake of Bioenergy Ribose can minimize sore muscles and muscle cramps so that you won’t be sidelined by pain,” she adds. “It can also help restore muscle energy faster so you’ll be more likely to finish that run, keep up with your kids as they enjoy outdoor play time, or simply complete your spring planting so that you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor.”

It was nonstop action during Engredea 2014, as health and nutrition industry experts from around the country converged at our booth to learn more about Bioenergy Ribose. Among the many highlights were the book signings by Jacob Teitelbaum, MD and the special appearance by Olympic medalist Susan Francia. We were also thrilled when alternative health expert Dr. Bryce Wylde interviewed Dr. Teitelbaum about the link between ribose, energy and fatigue.

Dr. Teitelbaum is a board certified internist and nationally known expert in the fields of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sleep and pain. Wylde, who is a frequent guest on The Dr. Oz Show, travels the world in search of beneficial natural ingredients so we were excited that he spent so much time at our booth. We’ll be sharing excerpts from this video interview here, as they become available.

Bioenergy Life Science will exhibit at several more events this year, including:

• BevNet Live: May 14-15, New York

• IFT: June 22-24, Louisiana

• SupplySide West: October 8-9, Nevada

• Hi Europe: December 2-4, The Netherlands

• BevNet Live: December 8-9, California

If you are an industry member, please stop by our booth during one or more of these events. And here’s the good news if you are a consumer: With all the excitement generated by Bioenergy Ribose, you’re likely to find it even more widely available – and in new lines of products – in the near future.
