BELOIT, WI ─ June 22, 2016 – Optimum Nutrition (ON), a leading sports nutrition manufacturer based in the U.S., launched Gold Standard BCAA Train + Recover, a new line of intra-workout drink mixes. The line is formulated with 250 mg of Wellmune®, a natural ingredient clinically proven to help strengthen the immune system.
“This product is the new Gold Standard for Intra-Workout support,” said Sean Hartley, Sr. ABM of Optimum Nutrition. “With BCAAs for muscle support and Rhodiola for endurance support, Wellmune was added to our BCAA Train + Recover formula due to the strong science behind the ingredient. The immune support of Wellmune can help athletes stay healthy, so they can train more effectively.”
The immune benefits of Wellmune are backed by numerous clinical studies with marathoners, cyclists and others enduring high physical stress. Wellmune was shown to improve overall physical health after intense periods of exercise and also reduced the incidence of upper respiratory tract infection systems that commonly affect endurance and high-performance athletes.
“Intensive exercise can weaken the immune system, creating an ‘open window’ effect with the body’s immune defenses,” said Donald Cox, Ph.D. – SVP R&D for Wellmune. “Wellmune’s proven ability to help athletes stay healthy after intense exercise enables them to train harder and longer.”
ON’s Gold Standard BCAA Train + Recover is available in four lightly-flavored mixes that are perfect for drinking throughout training: Strawberry Kiwi, Cranberry Lemonade, Fruit Punch and Watermelon.
Wellmune is a 100% natural food, beverage, and supplement ingredient clinically proven to help strengthen the immune system, making it easier for consumers to be well and stay well. This proprietary yeast beta 1,3/1,6 glucan has regulatory approval in major markets around the world, including GRAS status in the U.S. and novel food approval in Europe and China. Safe for everyday consumption, Wellmune is available in more than 60 countries. Wellmune is patented, Kosher, Halal, non-allergenic, GMO-free, gluten-free, and Informed-Sport certified. A recipient of numerous food industry awards for scientific excellence, Wellmune is part of Kerry’s nutrition and wellness portfolio.
