Naturex promotes Upletic for sports performance

23 Apr 2019

Naturex is promoting Upletic which it describes as a new natural ingredient with proven benefits for sports performance.

A patented, synergistic blend of two botanical extracts, the company says Upletic has been designed to enhance muscle protein synthesis, strength and performance and is clinically proven to improve lean mass in sporty as well as athletic people. Its efficacy is said to have been demonstrated in a comprehensive program of in vitro, in vivo and clinical trials.

The botanical extracts in Upletic are sourced in a preserved environment to guarantee a safe and completely traceable ingredient. It can, Naturex says, be used as a standalone supplement or as part of a mixture of ingredients that enhance sports performance.

The company has developed some new product concepts that incorporate its ingredients. These include:

+ WinCAPS, featuring Upletic for muscle growth as a pre-workout solution

+ WinGEL, a sports gel with extracts of Maca, Acerola and Panax Ginseng for lasting energy

+ WinSHAKE, with Sweoat – Naturex high-quality oat flour, Ultimine and Acerola, for post workout recovery

The company is also highlighting Ultimine, which it describes as a unique proprietary range of whole-food minerals derived from koji fermentation.

With health-conscious consumers showing increased interest in fermented foods, there is growing demand for natural, clean label fermented ingredients, Naturex claims. Additionally, it says, with mineral deficiency a health concern around the world, there is a need for products that can address this.

Ultimine is described as a unique, proprietary range of whole-food ingredients derived primarily from koji fermentation, which uses the capacity of koji culture spores to absorb and store high levels of minerals. Supported by clinical trials that show positive outcomes for several health indicators, Naturex says Ultimine can be formulated into capsules, tablets, gummies, powders and offers a great way for supplement makers to tap into the market’s desire for natural ways to help prevent deficiencies in minerals, particularly iron.
