LAS VEGAS, January 26, 2022 — Healthy Extracts Inc. (OTCQB: HYEX), a leading innovator of clinically proven plant-based products for heart and brain health, has secured a contract extension from Herbal & Antioxidant Derivatives, S.r.l. to exclusively market Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit™ in the U.S. and Canada until December 31, 2023.
Backed by clinical testing, Healthy Extracts is the only authorized company in these countries to distribute and manufacture the highest strength Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit with 47% BPF (bergamot-derived polyphenolic fraction) potency. This compares to Healthy Extracts closest competitor at only 38% BPF.
Healthy Extracts’ Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit formulations also contain the only citrus bergamot extracts approved by the prestigious Academia Del Bergamotto in Reggio Calabria, Italy.
“This renewed exclusivity provides us a major competitive advantage and supports our continued ramp up in sales across our portfolio of naturally formulated, clinically proven supplements that support heart health,” stated Duke Pitts, president of Healthy Extracts. “This includes the sales of our two new high-potency natural formulations containing this exclusive Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit.
“Combined with our expanding sales channels, including Amazon where we have become a very active seller, we remain on course for at least 100% organic revenue growth in 2022.”
Backed by more than 17 published clinical trials, citrus bergamot has been shown to improve heart health, support immune response, and address metabolic syndrome. Healthy Extracts Citrus Bergamot has been clinically shown to naturally reduce cholesterol by lowering LDL and increasing HDL.
According to the CDC, nearly 94 million adults aged 20 years or older in the U.S. have high cholesterol levels which puts them at risk of heart disease. An estimated 35 million people are prescribed statins each year in just the U.S., many of whom experience negative side effects.
A clinical study demonstrated that the BPF contained in Healthy Extracts’ proprietary Citrus Bergamot formulations can significantly enhance the beneficial effects of rosuvastatin, one of the most prescribed drugs for reducing cardiometabolic risk.
Healthy Extracts Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit formulations include CLINICAL IMMUNE™, HER HEART™, CHOLESTEROL COMMAND™, PRO+™, SPORTS HEART™ and MEGA+O™. They are all vegan friendly, non-GMO, gluten-free, fully organic and made and tested in certified U.S. facilities.
Healthy Extracts recently reported preliminary unaudited results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021. Gross revenue for the fourth quarter is expected to total approximately $770,000, up 72% sequentially and up more than 519% over the same year-ago quarter, with gross margin expected to exceed 65%. Revenue for the full year is expected to total approximately $1.7 million, increasing 31%.
The company’s products address the fast-growing global heart-health supplement market which reached $16.6 billion in 2020, according to ResearchAndMarkets. It is projected to grow at 5.9% compounded annual growth rate to $24.8 billion by 2027.
