Pomanox®: Peak Performance Improvement
A clinical study with Pomanox® pomegranate fruit extract indicates improved sport performance after only two weeks. Researchers from the Health Sciences Department of the Catholic University of Murcia (Spain) investigated in a randomized, placebo-controlled, trial, whether Pomanox® could improve the performance of trained cyclists (26 completed the study), after an exhausting endurance test. The conditions of the protocol simulated those in long-distance competitions, when participants decide to increase intensity in the last miles of the race (peak performance). The main results show that 14 days of Pomanox® supplementation significantly increased cyclists' time to exhaustion and time to reach VT2 in a maximal exercise test, after a prolonged endurance effort.
