TAIPEI, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Deep Ocean Biotech (PDOB), a research and development company that sources deep ocean water off the east coast of Taiwan (water found at depths over 600 meters), is partnering with Ontario-based CK Ingredients Inc. to be the exclusive Canadian importer of Deep Ocean Minerals, a product refined from deep ocean water. CK Ingredients is a leading supplier of nutritional ingredients to Canadian food, beverage, and dietary supplement manufacturers.
According to PDOB cofounder Tony Jacobs, "CK Ingredients are exactly the kind of innovative partner-company we're seeking because they're known for their impeccable standards. And they respect our rigorous process of refining, the clinical research on Deep Ocean Minerals that we bring to the table, and of course, the unique product we offer."
Deep Ocean Minerals are purified and refined from deep ocean water, the slow-moving layer of the ocean originating from the northern arctic and Greenland ice melts. This layer is exceptionally pristine, with no algae, plankton, or marine life, because sunlight does not penetrate it, and is heavily saturated with over 70 minerals and trace elements. Scientists have recently discovered that this complex soluble mineral source contains essential nutrients to activate over 600 physiological functions from its magnesium content alone.
CK Ingredients Inc. has received a licence from the Natural and Non-Prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) for approval to import and sell Deep Ocean Minerals. This is the first international government registration approving recommendations for use of Deep Ocean Minerals.
Based on scientific evidence, the Canadian Department of Health has confirmed the use of Deep Ocean Minerals to:
- Replenish electrolytes.
- Help maintain good health.
- Help metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
- Promote bone and teeth health.
- Maintain proper muscle function.
Health Canada has stringent guidelines for safety, efficacy, and quality, and the granting of an NPN--Natural Product Number, a license to market the product in Canada--speaks to the quality and future dietary potential of Deep Ocean Minerals.
CK Ingredients are the exclusive Canadian importers for Deep Ocean Minerals supplied by Pacific Deep Ocean Biotech Co. from the east coast of Taiwan, one of the few places on earth where it's possible to access deep ocean water from the coastline via pipelines of 5 kilometers that reach depths of over 600 meters.
"While Canada is the first to import Deep Ocean Minerals," says Jacobs, "we're seeing other countries--including China, Japan, and Korea--now funding clinical trials and doing product research on the promising medical applications for Deep Ocean Minerals. The potential uses of this remarkable product in sports, medicine, nutrition, and cosmetics, to name a few, are exciting."
