By: Newsfile

Vancouver, British Columbia  and Rehovot, Israel--(Newsfile Corp. - June 6, 2023) - BioHarvest Sciences (CSE: BHSC) (OTCQB: CNVCF) announces that it has added Dr. John Paul SanGiovanni, world renowned nutritionist and Harvard-trained scientist, to its Medical and Scientific Advisory board.

Dr. SanGiovanni will act as a liaison with the spheres of Academia, Industry, and Government, helping spread the promise and potential of Botanical Synthesis. His deep connections within Academic and research institutions will introduce BioHarvest's biotech capabilities to new potential research partners, and he will contribute his experience to help facilitate targeted applications for both US and European government grants.

CEO Ilan Sobel commented on the symbiotic fit between Dr. SanGiovanni's life work and the corporate mission of BioHarvest. "Dr. SanGiovanni's teams are researching the different mechanisms that allow the human body to transport, sense, and metabolize vital nutrients. He is a fierce advocate for the need to identify the plant based solutions that can best enhance human health, extend lives, and reduce illness and disability," stated Mr. Sobel, adding "We envision John Paul working closely with Dr. Cornblatt and our Science team to help identify the global research initiatives best suited to benefit from our Botanical Synthesis technology, and we also see him as a critical partner in our mission to educate academia and the health verticals on the potential of Botanical Synthesis to improve the human experience."

"Through its Bio-Cellicitation platform, the BioHarvest team has eliminated variations in product quality otherwise linked to climate, pest exposures, and soil/water chemistry -- the portability of the BioHarvest technology opens global vistas for controlled growing environments in any space with the capacity to hold their bioreactors," stated Dr. SanGiovanni, adding "This will promote production of high-quality nutrient and food constituents to industry and consumers, and the efficiency by which the end-to-end ecosystem operating in the ISO-/GMP-compliant BioHarvest Botanical Synthesis process yields an abundance of consistent, clean and market-ready plant-based bioactive compounds is unparalleled."
