LifeVantage Launches Protandim, The Nrf2 Synergizer In Japan

Stocks in this article: LFVN

SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeVantage Corporation (Nasdaq:LFVN), a company dedicated to helping people achieve healthy living through a combination of a compelling business opportunity and scientifically validated products, including its patented dietary supplement Protandim®, the Nrf2 Synergizer®, today announced a significant milestone in its global expansion: the Company's release of a new formulation of Protandim in Japan with potent Nrf2 activation as well as the implementation of necessary warehousing and product fulfillment resources to be fully operational on the ground in Japan.

Internally directed research and development programs have enabled LifeVantage to produce a formulation of Protandim for the Japanese market that meets recently enacted local regulatory requirements. "As part of our ongoing Global R&D program at LifeVantage we conducted a proprietary cell bioassay test that allowed us to identify an ideal formula for Japan that causes significant Nrf2 activation," said LifeVantage Chief Science Officer Dr. Darlene Walley. The formulation being distributed in Japan is the subject of a placebo controlled, double blind clinical study being conducted at Colorado State University. Preliminary data from that study show the product to be a potent oxidative stress reducer.

"Today we celebrate the launch of a full-bore sales and marketing program in Japan, a nation of 130 million," said LifeVantage President and Managing Director Asia-Pacific David K. Toda. "We already have an established base of independent distributors in Japan, and their enthusiasm for Protandim and TrueScience® Anti-Aging Cream has been extraordinary."

"This is a historic day and a major milestone for LifeVantage," said President and Chief Executive Officer Douglas C. Robinson. "We could not be more pleased with the significance of this day—moving from a NFR status to a full-business operation in Japan. It is the culmination of two and a half years of dedication and commitment from our corporate team, our network of independent distributors and business partners and allows LifeVantage to realize its mission of providing extraordinary health products to the people of Japan."
