Inergetics Enters Second Phase of a Three Phase Process to Launch its CBD-Based Supplements

Innovative Technology and Pharmacokinetic (PK) Studies Lead Path to CBD efficacy.

NEWARK, N.J., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Inergetics, Inc. (OTCBB: NRTI), a leading developer of nutritional supplements, today announced the beginning of the second phase of development towards the launch of its proprietary line of natural cannabidiol (CBD)-based nutritional supplements it is developing in partnership with Terra Tech Corp (OCTBB: TRTC). 

Bioavailability is an important measurement of how efficiently a substance is taken into the body. Published scientific studies report CBD oral bioavailability in the range of between 10 – 20%.  Efforts to increase its bioavailability and therapeutic benefits in the body is a major point of differentiation to CBD products.

To assess bioavailability, pharmacokinetic (PK) studies are conducted to help describe what the body does to an ingested substance and its movement throughout the body. This testing is an important step to establish absorption and efficacy of a substance. 

"Enhancing oral absorption and how quickly CBD gets into the bloodstream is but one of the challenges for the industry. A PK study is underway in collaboration with our international R&D alliances using new technology applied to our CBD – a technology that is well proven especially with lipid soluble nutrients," states Chief Science Officer Carl Germano, RD, CNS, CDN. "We are confident the outcome will result in a product that sets the gold standard for efficiency and effectiveness as compared to what exists in the marketplace today."

In addition to improving oral bioavailability of CBD, Inergetics goal is to enhance its formulations with other dietary sources of cannabinoids that complement CBD. Through its international R&D alliances, successful procurement of an additional cannabinoid that serves as a counterpart to CBD's effects in the body has been obtained and will be a vital component to the finalized formulas.

"These R&D efforts provide for the innovation necessary to help us gain a competitive advantage and sustain long-run growth of our company," states Michael James, CEO. "In addition to our distribution and brand building initiatives to address customer demands and market competition, we will continue to nurture our R&D strengths to focus on new manufacturing technologies and processes that result in significant product improvements."

Inergetics' CBD-based supplements are expected to be distributed via medicinal marijuana dispensaries in 2015. 

Continued updates on the CBD product initiative and the Scientific/Medical Advisory Board will be made available at http://www.inergetics.com/cbd-initiative/.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust.
