AIDP Enters Exclusive Partnership with American River Nutrition

Hadley, Massachusetts (September 7, 2022) AIDP will be responsible for all sales and marketing for GG-Gold® and DuoQuinol®.

AIDP has entered into an exclusive North American distribution agreement with American River Nutrition for GG-Gold and DuoQuinol. AIDP will be responsible for all sales and marketing efforts to promote these products.

GG-Gold is a Geranylgeraniol (GG) ingredient, which is an endogenous nutrient in the body that declines with age. It is essential for skeletal muscle protein synthesis and the production of testosterone, progesterone, CoQ10 and MK4. By replenishing natural levels of GG, the ingredient is formulated to reduce the risk of age-related physical decline, maintain structural support for the body, and promote healthy muscle strength and function. GG-Gold has a GRAS designation, making it suitable for a wide range of products.

DuoQuinol is a novel product with a patented combination of ubiquinol and GG. The unique combination in DuoQuinol creates a complementary mechanism that supports heart function and cellular energy through ubiquinol, with additional benefits of naturally-stimulated production of CoQ10 through GG to promote healthy muscle function and strength.

American River Nutrition was founded in 1998 by Dr. Barrie Tan. ARN’s mission is focused on scientific advancement of the health benefits of Bixa Orellana, a tropical plant commonly known as annatto.

“We are very excited about this partnership as we have strong mutual interest in providing wider access to functional ingredients,” said Tan. “We look forward to providing strong technical support to AIDP.”

“We jumped on this opportunity to work with Barrie to sell these products from American River,” said Mark Thurston, president of AIDP. “We see them as key vectors for our continued growth in bringing scientifically-backed ingredients to market.”
