PurpleForce® is an all-natural, Kenyan purple tea extract that improves exercise performance, reduces fatigue, and helps maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.*

Purple tea is rich in functional ingredients and polyphenolic compounds such as GHG, which helps inhibit lipid and fat absorption while boosting fat metabolism.*

It also works to activate AMPK, an enzyme that increases energy levels and glucose absorption in the skeletal muscle.*

Four of PurpleForce’s clinically validated benefits include:*

1.   Boosting fat metabolism

2.   Reducing fat absorption and accumulation

3.   Helping relax vascular smooth-muscle to improve post-workout recovery

4.   Improving endurance and reducing overall muscle fatigue

In fact, a clinical study found the extract works to improve endurance and reduce fatigue during exercise.

Study participants who took PurpleForce were able to do more leg extensions and bench-press repetitions compared to the placebo group—PurpleForce supplementation also, as mentioned above, improved muscle recovery and overall fat metabolism.*

It’s perfectly suited for sports performance, weight-control, skin support and beauty-from-within formulas.

Backed by human clinical studies, PurpleForce is dairy-free, gluten-free and non-GMO.

Healthy circulation is literally at the heart of sports nutrition.

In fact, one of the most researched tripeptides for cardiovascular health, VasoDrive-AP® (also known as AmealPeptide®) is said to improve arterial flexibility by increasing the production of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS).*

Research shows that VasoDrive-AP may support recovery and help sustain endothelial function throughout training cycles; it can also reduce mild exercise-related fatigue and muscle soreness after high-intensity exercise.*

It also helps athletes with their “head game” by supporting healthy cerebral circulation and cognitive function.*

VasoDrive-AP is manufactured by enzymatically hydrolyzing casein with the protease derived from Aspergillus oryzae in such a way that the peptides are not damaged or broken down into their individual amino acids.

Supported by over 30 published studies, VasoDrive-AP is well-suited for beverages as well as dietary supplements—it is FDA GRAS, non-GMO, gluten-free, Kosher and Halal.

Over the last couple of years, consumer demand for immune-boosting supplements has been off-the-charts, especially for ingredients such as zinc.

We all know that zinc plays a central role in the immune system, affecting cellular and humoral immunity. Not getting enough zinc makes people susceptible to infection.

However, the efficacy of zinc depends on the ingredient form and absorption differs significantly between individual zinc preparations.

Enter UltraZin®.

UltraZin is a product based on Sucrosomial® technology, where the zinc molecule is conveyed into a liposomal-like structure made up of phospholipids and sucrose esters of fatty acids (sucresters), called a sucrosome.

The sucresters act as emulsifiers, surrounding the liposomal-like structure that encapsulates the microelement, thereby increasing its solubility, dissolution, absorption and bioavailability.

UltraZin does not react with intestinal mucosa, thus increasing the tolerability without the typical aftertaste of conventional zinc.

In a study, the levels of zinc in serum plasma following treatment with UltraZin were approximately 80% higher compared to zinc gluconate. UltraZin is also absorbed faster than zinc gluconate. 

UltraZin is well-suited for gelcaps, capsules, tablets and functional foods.

The name “taurine” comes from the Latin Bos taurus, which means ox, since this amino acid was first isolated from ox bile in 1827.

Research shows that taurine supplementation supports reduced fatigue, less muscle soreness and reduced muscle damage after strenuous exercise.* In some cases, it has even improved runners’ times.* 

In fact, a 2021 review of 19 taurine studies confirmed that taurine:*

1.  Increases the body’s oxygen uptake

2.  Reduces muscle damage

3.  Increases time to fatigue

4.  Improves strength and power

5.  Reduces recovery times
