NBA, NFL and PGA Players Purchase SURGEX(TM) as Millennium Launches
BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium Biotechnologies Inc., wholly-owned subsidiary of Millennium Biotechnologies Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MBTG), a research-based nutraceutical company and a pioneer in the emerging field of specialized nutritional supplements for the medical market, announced today the launch of their advanced sports nutritional product, SURGEX(TM) (http://www.surgexsports.com). SURGEX(TM) was created from Millennium's extensive experience providing advanced nutritional formulas to some of the most prestigious medical institutions throughout the United States. The proprietary formula intends to meet the growing demand of elite level professional and amateur athletes and their coaches looking for nutritional support in a marketplace dominated by products with no clinical proof of benefit, unsubstantiated claims, excess protein, stimulants, and banned substances.
SURGEX(TM) has already caught the attention of numerous professional and collegiate athletes and teams. Many of which have made the switch to using SURGEX(TM) exclusively. Mike Curtis, current Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Memphis Grizzlies, uses SURGEX(TM) exclusively with the athletes he trains. Mr. Curtis adds, "The athletes I work with are some of the most well conditioned in the world. They require sophisticated nutritional support to aid in their recovery from intense year round training. My athletes are committed to finding ways to enhance their recovery and I believe SURGEX(TM) has played an integral role in that process."
SURGEX(TM) constitutes a blend of extended release proteins, anti- oxidants, amino acids and whole food calories to meet the multi-nutritional needs of Strength, Speed, and Endurance athletes. It works to counteract the stress that exercise puts on the body through an all-in-one nutritional supplement. During intense training, muscles incur cell damage and fatigue. The body tries to recover itself by automatically rebuilding that damage over time. If the muscles are re-trained before they have fully recovered, muscle repair and development can be inhibited, resulting in potential damage and decreased physical performance.
In double blind placebo controlled trials at the Rutgers University Human Performance Lab SURGEX(TM) significantly outperformed leading competitive products by assisting in reducing the damaging effects of exercise by improving peak power outputs, lowering oxidative stress/inflammatory markers, reducing fatigue (poor energy recovery) and the breakdown of muscle (post exercise wasting), as well as the lessening of free radical production (oxidative stress). The formula meets NCAA guidelines for use by collegiate athletes and is certified to contain no banned substances.
Supporting the launch is the debut of a state of the art website surgexsports.com. The state of the art site will provide a plethora of information on the science behind proper recovery from intense training and Millennium's study results supporting its claims for improving strength, endurance, oxidative stress markers and faster recovery. Visitors will also be able to order SURGEX(TM) for individual or team use on the site's online store.
"This is clearly a multibillion dollar industry worldwide and to leverage our proven, patent protected formulas, in a global sports market place will significantly enhance share holder value. With over twenty professional basketball players currently using our product, some for over a year, we believe that this will ignite a strong demand across numerous sports channels worldwide," said Mark Mirken, Chief Operating Officer of Millennium Biotechnologies.
Millennium's three proprietary, marketed products, which form the Company's Resurgex(R) Continuum of Care, include Resurgex Select(R), Resurgex(R), and Resurgex Plus(R). Resurgex Select(R) is a whole foods-based, calorically dense, high-protein nutritional formula developed for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments. Resurgex(R) and Resurgex Plus(R) are specialized, anabolic nutritional supplements rich in antioxidants that provide nutritional support post-treatment. Millennium is also recently developed a SURGEX(TM) sports nutrition formula, clinically proven to address the nutritional concerns of both professional and amateur elite athletes. These athletes often experience similar symptoms post-workout to those battling immunocompromised conditions, such as fatigue, loss of lean muscle, oxidative stress, and reduced immune function.
