PLT Health Solutions to attend Natural Products Expo West

Published: 20-Feb-2024

The company will launch novel ingredients supporting muscle health, restorative sleep, cognitive wellbeing and the enhancement of metabolic rate

PLT Health Solutions, Inc. has announced that it will be launching two new ingredients, as well as highlighting new clinical science at Natural Products Expo West.

The event will take place between March 12 — 16th in Anaheim, CA, USA. 

The new ingredients, each of which is supported by a new clinical study, include Strengthera™ Muscle Maintenance+Vitality, which delivers benefits such as  muscle health, strength and endurance and improved physical functioning. 

The focus of the company at Natural Products Expo West will be on clinical science that helps companies make compelling on-pack claims for their health-promoting products

Additional to muscle benefits, Strengthera™ can be used as a restorative sleep and pain relief ingredient, which offers consumers better sleep at night and less pain, leading to increased vigour and mobility during the day.  

PLT will also be highlighting five clinical studies that were announced or published since last year’s Expo West in the areas of joint and cartilage health, weight management,  sports nutrition and cognitive performance. 

According to Steve Fink, the Vice President of Marketing for PLT Health, the focus of the company at Natural Products Expo West will be on clinical science that helps companies make compelling on-pack claims for their health-promoting products. 

“PLT Health Solutions is committed to world-class clinical science to validate the safety and efficacy of health-enhancing natural products. Our support for meaningful  clinical studies is broader and stronger today than it has ever been in the 70-year history of our company,” he says.

“We’re excited to share our new science on the two ingredient launches we are doing at Expo West because they represent unique approaches to important health categories – sleep and muscle health.”

Clinical studies power innovation

Clinical studies that have bene published or announced since last year’s show include:

 AprèsFlex® 5-Day Joint Support – A 6-month study showed prolonged benefits. It also demonstrated joint space improvement and cartilage preservation/protection.

 Slendacor® Weight Management Complex – A clinical trial demonstrated an increased resting metabolic rate in subjects, as well as thermogenic effects and calorie burning. There were also metabolic health benefits observed from taking Slendacor® in this study. The ingredient was recently granted a patent based on this new clinical data.

Zynamite®  PX – A clinical study by independent researchers in Greece using the country’s National Basketball League as subjects showed significant performance improvements in high-intensity exercise for high-level athletes. This was achieved after one hour post-supplementation.

 Nutricog® Cognitive Performance Complex - A 2023 study demonstrated multiple aspects of cognitive performance improvement including faster learning, improved attention, better memory and reduced distractibility.

According to Fink, an overriding goal for PLT is to curate market focused science and new formulation-friendly ingredients that help companies drive trust with consumers and allow them to improve their health. 

“Understanding the market’s needs and pain points whilst developing the science, sustainability and quality practices we’ll need to attract consumers is what we do at PLT,” he said. “Natural Products Expo West is a great opportunity for PLT to engage the industry and we look forward to meeting as many people as we can at the show,” he added.
