The study evaluated the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of TurmXTRA 60N on DOMS
Nutriventia has revealed a study showing the efficacy, safety and tolerability of TurmXTRA 60N on delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
As more people worldwide engage in fitness to achieve whole and healthy lifestyle, a new study shows that a turmeric extract (TurmXTRA) from Nutriventia can help reduce DOMS. The study was published recently in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of TurmXTRA 60N on DOMS compared to placebo in recreationally active healthy subjects. This randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel-group study gave 30 healthy and recreationally active subjects either TurmXTRA or placebo for 33 days.
The primary endpoint was the change in pain intensity measured by the visual analog scale (VAS) at the end of study treatment (at 96 hours after exercise) from baseline (measured immediately after exercise).
The VAS score indicated that subjects in the supplement group experienced significantly less pain after exercise compared to the placebo group. Serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) was significantly lower in the supplement group compared to the placebo group.
“As sports nutrition continues to expand into recovery, supplements such as TurmXTRA can be critical for consumers to ensure they remain on track to achieve their fitness and competition goals
Well-being status was assessed using the adapted version of the Hooper and MacKinnon questionnaire and was calculated as individual and cumulative scores of the domains (fatigue, mood, general muscle soreness, sleep quality, and stress). The results of this study demonstrated improvement in all domains and in overall well-being in the turmeric group compared to the placebo group.
The authors concluded that supplementing with TurmXTRA before and after exercise significantly reduces subjective perception of muscle soreness and serum LDH activity as well as elevates the psychological well-being in recreationally active adults.
“As sports nutrition continues to expand into recovery, supplements such as TurmXTRA can be critical for consumers to ensure they remain on track to achieve their fitness and competition goals,” commented Anand Godbole, Vice President for Nutriventia.
Nutriventia, Inventia Healthcare's health and wellness brand, is at the cusp of science and nature. The journey at Inventia began almost four decades ago, when two scientists with deep-rooted knowledge in medical sciences, ventured out to develop solutions that were an improvement on generic products becoming the pioneers of NDDS products in India. Today, Nutriventia is a preferred partner to multinational and Indian transnational companies for their global requirements. Nutriventia uses proprietary and patented processes to improve ingredients by addressing issues and concerns in manufacturing, formulation, clinical research.
