Morristown, N.J., July 27, 2020-OmniActive Health Technologies, the North American marketer of ENovate Biolife’s enXtra®, announced the outcomes of a new study-A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trial Demonstrating Safety & Efficacy of enXtra® in Healthy Adults-which was published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. The new research further demonstrates enXtra’s unique position as a natural, effective and safe caffeine alternative with same-day benefits for consumers looking for solutions in the energy category.
“The latest study demonstrates our commitment to support on-trend claims with credible science for our global customers,” said JayeshChaudhary, Founder and CEO of ENovate Biolife. “Whether it’s using computerized Attention Network Test, molecular docking studies, or assessing longer-term cardiogenic safety, we rely on cutting-edge research tools that are setting new benchmarks in our industry.”
The 12-week double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study was conducted on adults who reported moderate caffeine consumption. Subjects were randomized to receive either enXtra®, enXtra® plus caffeine or placebo. The findings of the study demonstrate that enXtra®-either alone or in combination with caffeine-exerts a psychostimulant effect (i.e. alertness), exhibits no safety concerns with long-term use, and strengthens earlier findings supporting its nootropic benefits. Over the course of the entire study enXtra® displayed an acute and consistent improvement in alertness, which suggests a lack of habituation (i.e. subjects do not have to take increasing doses of enXtra® to exert a similar effect).
The study provides finished product manufacturers a clinically demonstrated safe and effective ingredients to fill a much-needed gap in the energy market.
