Shortly after launching Zynamite at Vitafoods Europe 2018, Nektium is proud to announce that its caffeine replacement was honored with the Nutraingredients Award in the Sports Nutrition category as Ingredient of the Year
Nektium is an innovative botanical ingredients company that discovers, develops and commercialises science-based ingredients through close integration of the departments of R&D, production and Quality Assurance. The company provides seamless research- based solutions to the nutraceutical industry.
The R&D team of Nektium has investigated caffeine alternatives for over two years until launching the clinically-studied ingredient Zynamite, an extract from mango leaves, standardised to 60% mangiferin.
It's the main bioactive compound responsible for the caffeine-like effect, such as mental activation, focus and concentration; without the typical side-effects of caffeine such as jitters, racing pulse and anxiety.
Miguel Jimenez, CEO of Nektium commented: “We were overwhelmed with the interest people had in Zynamite.
The launch and winning the Nutraingredients Award was a major achievement. The company has undergone major changes within the past years and developing innovative new ingredients is a priority for Nektium.”
Considering 11 categories, the panel from the Nutraingredients Awards recognises the industry´s best product developments, brightest research and biggest commercial successes.
The ceremony traditionally takes place during the trade show Vitafoods Europe in Geneva, where the nutraceutical sector comes together annually to see the latest trends and developments.
