OmniActive Health Technologies is presenting the poster “Dietary Capsaicinoids May Enhance Exercise by Effective Utilization of Lipids When Combined with Treadmill Running in a Rat Model” at this year’s American Heart Association’s EPI/Lifestyle Scientific sessions. The poster will be presented by Vijaya Juturu Ph.D., F.A.C.N., Senior Manager of Global Scientific and Clinical Affairs, OmniActive Health Technologies Inc. on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 in the “Atrium” at the Hyatt Regency, Phoenix, AZ (USA).
“We are excited about the results that suggest dietary capsaicinoids (from Capsimax Capsicum Extract) may increase fat oxidation and energy expenditure, improve antioxidant activity and decrease oxidative stress,” stated Dr. Jayant Deshpande, CTO of OmniActive Health Technologies.
There is an increasing awareness of the benefits of natural compounds like Capsimax to support exercise performance and endurance. The demand for “clean” sports nutrition products is fueling a fast-growing market that not only addresses weight management but also a broader category of healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise.
“OmniActive continues to support efforts to build the science on Capsimax allowing us to deliver strong positioning in the weight management, sports nutrition and healthy lifestyle categories,” stated Lynda M. Doyle, Vice President of Global Marketing, OmniActive Health Technologies. “Our continual efforts to demonstrate the benefits of Capsimax strengthen its position as an efficacious, stimulant-free ingredient naturally derived from a food source.”
