MORRISTOWN, N.J., April 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- OmniActive will be sponsoring the presentation "Powering Sports Nutrition Products with Bioavailable Curcumin" at this year's Vitafoods taking place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 15-17 May 2018. The presentation—which takes place on Tuesday, 15 May, from 15:40-16:10 (3:40-4:10 pm) at the Sports Nutrition Stage—will be delivered by Brian Appell, who has been a contributor to multiple books, publications and blogs for the natural products and ingredients industries, as well as is currently the Activation marketing manager for OmniActive.
Curcumin delivers the sports nutrition benefits of turmeric, including a normal healthy inflammatory response after exercise. Recent research has shown that long-term supplementation with an optimal, cost-effective dose of curcuminoids from an enhanced bioavailable curcumin product can help support healthy blood flow and circulation, as well as improve muscle performance, endurance capacity, and resistance to fatigue, which are important for sports performance and an active lifestyle.
Attendees will gain insight into bioavailable curcumin's application in sports nutrition formulas including how it supports a normal inflammatory response after exercise and healthy blood flow and circulation, which are critical to performance and recovery.
