(Avignon, France) 17 April 2019
Plant-powered sports performance
Upletic™, a new natural ingredient with proven benefits for sports performance, will be a major focus for Naturex at Vitafoods Europe 2019.
A patented, synergistic blend of two botanical extracts, 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.

Whole-food minerals from koji fermentation
Naturex will also highlight Ultimine™, 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. Additionally, with mineral deficiency a health concern around the world, there is a need for products that can address this.
