Research presented at 3rd Annual International Society of Sports Nutrition Conference

CHICAGO, IL – Jesse R. Lopez, President and CEO of SourceOne™ Global Partners, has announced that a new study has further validated the many benefits of its proprietary ActivAli™ Tongkat Ali. As multiple clinical studies have demonstrated ActivAli Tongkat Ali to safely increase endurance, strength, and stamina, this new study, for the first time, revealed that the botanical also promotes favorable anabolic balance during intense and prolonged exercise.

This research was presented recently at the 3rd annual International Society of Sports Nutrition Conference, where the study authors demonstrated how ActivAli safely enhanced testosterone while simultaneously lowering cortisol levels. This seminal study is the first to show a statistically significant ratio of increased testosterone to decreased cortisol in healthy individuals who participated in a 24-hour endurance mountain bike race.

“This study provides new and compelling scientific evidence that supports the multiple health benefits that our proprietary ActivAli Tongkat Ali delivers,” Lopez says. “SourceOne remains committed to investing in studies to validate scientific evidence supporting our proprietary branded ingredients and formulas.”

The study sought to determine the effects of the herb specifically on cortisol and testosterone levels during high-intensity exercise. Both placebo and ActivAli were taken approximately 30 minutes prior to exercise. The researchers found that cortisol levels in the ActivAli group were significantly lower - 33 percent - than in the placebo group. Also, testosterone levels in the ActivAli group were 16.4 percent higher than that of the placebo group.

“This new science holds significant potential for the sports nutrition, metabolic syndrome, and weight loss markets,” says James Roza, co-author of the study and Vice President of Business Development, Technology and Science for SourceOne. “This placebo-controlled study bodes well not only for athletes but for dieters alike because the incidence of visceral obesity is directly associated with high cortisol output that contributes to the deposition of fat in adipose tissue that surrounds the stomach. Obesity in America is at epidemic proportions and SourceOne is proud to offer proprietary, science-backed ingredients that help support healthy triglycerides, cholesterol, weight management, visceral fat, and all the key components affected by metabolic syndrome.”

This exciting research is added to the body of science that supports SourceOne’s ActivAli. Other research shows that ActivAli increases energy levels without inciting nervous energy (“jitters”), a trait that is favorable and thus preferable among the many consumers seeking to attain a healthy weight and body composition through diet and exercise.

Lopez adds that SourceOne is currently planning several new studies that will support its new proprietary OPC-Source™ French Maritime Pine Bark Extract, OmegaSmart™ Super Concentrated omega-3 ingredients as well as more studies that will support the benefits of ActivAli.
