London and New York, 21 January 2019 - Amphion Innovations plc (AIM: AMP), the developer of medical, life science, and technology businesses, announces that, further to the update provided in the Company’s results announcement on 26 June 2018, its Partner company WellGen Inc. ("WellGen") has signed a license agreement (the “Agreement”) with Sportables LLC and One11 Innovation,  Missouri-based beverage companies.  Under the terms of the Agreement, WellGen will receive 11% of the profits derived from the commercial development and sale of Workout Tea, a novel functional beverage based on a patented and clinically proven anti-inflammatory ingredient derived from a black tea extract.

The market for such products has been expanding rapidly in recent years and WellGen believes there is a place for a black tea-based beverage whose anti-inflammatory properties have been clinically proven.  WellGen’s proprietary Black Tea Extract is scientifically derived and the clinical trials demonstrated improved performance and recovery benefits such as a reduction in muscle soreness and reduced recovery time.  WorkOut Tea is currently available in select stores in the US in a number of flavours.
