Kaneka Pharma Europe introduced a range of various application examples, answering the demands of today’s sportspeople for better performance and a healthy body

Brussels (Belgium), May 2018 – In line with the slogan #Powered by Ubiquinol, Kaneka highlighted at this year’s Vitafoods several options for combination products that target the emerging sports nutrition market. The key ingredient Ubiquinol™ is an essential part of the body’s respiratory chain and is scientifically proven to support endurance, overall performance and recovery. Working with its partners, Kaneka has developed nutraceutical supplements in various dosage forms, such as energy gels, powder sticks and a variety of capsules, all including specially stabilised Ubiquinol™.
A broad range of other ingredients are ideal for the production of powerful combinations – such as magnesium for rapid energy, vitamins and amino acids to promote recovery, and Kaneka’s unique ingredient Glavonoid™ to support muscle building.

The company’s patented and natural yeast-based production process makes it possible to deliver Ubiquinol™ in several stable application forms without any detrimental impact on efficacy. Granulate sticks, hard gelatine and chewable capsules as well as gels and liquids make supplementation easy, even on the move. Combinations with multivitamins, magnesium, carnitine and amino acids can be tailored to the needs of sportspeople who want to support their immune defence, rapid energy production or muscular capabilities.

Filip Van hulle, Senior Manager at Kaneka’s Quality of Life Division, is delighted with the excellent response the company’s sports prototypes received at Vitafoods: “The sports nutrition market is growing enormously, fuelled by interest from a deeper than ever pool of potential consumers who are well informed and focussed on innovative, backed-by-science ingredients. Our sports prototypes represent the tip of the iceberg of possibilities for developments in the future.”
