SEBASTOPOL, Calif., Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Spice Pharm took top honors for weight management in the 2015 consumer products competition sponsored by SupplySide, the largest and most diverse trade show and international forum for top performers, trends, and scientific advances in the nutritional industry. Spice Pharm's Golden Goddess® Turmeric Chai Elixir and Food of the Gods™ Chocolate Elixir were chosen from over 300 entrants in the weight management category to win the coveted SupplySide Editor's Choice Award.
"Weight management is a tricky category, as there are countless diets that come and go, and regulators and consumers have become suspicious of the safety, quality and efficacy of ingredients used in weight management supplements," report the SupplySide editors. "Standing out from the crowd is difficult, especially for companies on a mission to market responsibly. Research and careful formulation are paramount in this segment, as is addressing growing consumer demands for more convenient and targeted products."
Golden Goddess Turmeric Chai Elixir and Food of the Gods Chocolate Elixir were recognized for achievements in innovation, scientific substantiation, great taste. Designed as instant beverages with "just add water" convenience, they pair whole spices, renowned for antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, with herbs for weight loss and stress relief, and coconut milk for energy and satiation.
"While there are no magic pills for weight loss, there are very important things you can do when looking at how to reduce weight," said Kitty Wells, CEO of Spice Pharm. "Controlling the stress hormone cortisol is critical to success, as cortisol has so many downstream effects on your mood, appetite, how you metabolize food and store fat. At Spice Pharm, we focus on stress relief, cortisol management, the pleasure and sensuality of real foods, and true nourishment for the body and soul."
Ashwagandha, an ancient herb from India, is a key ingredient in Spice Pharm Elixirs. Spice Pharm uses a unique extract called KSM-66, which is backed by 11 clinical studies. Research shows multiple benefits making it one of the most valuable herbs for weight loss: reducing serum cortisol, insomnia, perceived levels of stress, anxiety, emotional eating, uncontrolled eating, body weight and BMI (body-mass index). Research also reveals its effectiveness to accelerate increased lean body mass and decreased body fat when used with resistance training.
