SAN PEDRO, Calif., March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sports Research, a family-run health and wellness company celebrating its 37th anniversary, proudly introduces the very first Non-GMO Project Verified vegetarian softgel nutritional supplements. The Non-GMO Project Verified seal assures consumers that Sports Research's nutritional products have been produced according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance. Sports Research is leading the dietary supplement industry with 21 Non-GMO Project Verified products, nine of which are plant-based softgels.
Made with only modified tapioca, glycerin and purified water, this is a breakthrough for plant-based and organic consumers no longer wanting carrageenan, bovine, porcine, sorbitol or modified cornstarch in their dietary supplements.
"This plant-based technology is indeed a significant game-changer for our industry," said Jeff Pedersen, CEO and Founder of Sports Research. "Animal-based softgel capsules have been a mainstay in dietary supplement delivery, but the innovation of a Non-GMO Project Verified and carrageenan-free plant-based softgel offers a superior alternative to the 10 million consumers that identify themselves as either vegans or vegetarians."
Sports Research liquid softgel supplements that have met the Non-GMO Project's rigorous standard include:
- Astaxanthin 12mg
- Biotin 10,000mcg
- Biotin 5,000mcg
- C3 Complex Turmeric Curcumin
- CLA 1250 80%
- CLA 1250 95%
- Evening Primrose Oil
- Flaxseed Oil
- Garcinia Cambogia 65%
- Lipowheat® Phtyoceramides
- MCT 1000mg
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Svetol® Green Coffee Bean
- Vitamin K2 as MK-7
According to Sports Research Chief Operating Officer Mike Pedersen, this achievement was years in the making. "Living a GMO-free lifestyle is important to many of our consumers, and until now there hasn't been a Non-GMO liquid softgel option. We invested significant time and resources to achieve this innovation, leveraging our team's deep softgel knowledge and expertise in our product development."
Sports Research has also achieved Non-GMO verification of the following products: Premium MCT Oil, Pure Marine Collagen Peptides, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Vegetable Glycerin. The company plans to develop more Non-GMO Project Verified products by the end of the year.
Sports Research products are available at top retailers including Amazon, GNC, iHerb, The Vitamin Shoppe and online at www.SportsResearch.com/shop/supplements. Connect with Sports Research on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
