Our partners Gencor and Pharmako Biotechnologies had a double win at the recent NutraIngredients-Asia Awards.
Focusing on true innovation, long-term market success and cutting-edge research, the NutraIngredients-Asia Awards honour the best and brightest in ingredients, finished products, companies, people, and initiatives in the nutrition and dietary supplements industry.
The multi-award-winning HydroCurc® took another crown for Ingredient of the Year in the healthy ageing category. HydroCurc® is a cold water dispersible powdered extract with an extract ratio of 25:1. It is specifically designed to increase the dispersibility of its bio-active compound, curcumin. HydroCurc® provides 85% curcuminoids which are known to support cognitive, heart, joint and overall health.
For the Specialty Award for Innovation in Women’s Health, Libifem® reigned supreme. Gencor noticed the scarcity of clinical research focused on women’s health and female sports nutrition development. Libifem® is a specially designed, woman-centric solution that was created to support women through their stages of life, offering menopausal support, muscle strength, and sexual health support. This ingredient is not only peer-reviewed but patented. It is dosed at active levels, has rigorous sourcing procedures, and is formulated so the body can absorb it.
Gary Scattergood, Editor-in-Chief of NutraIngredients-Asia, commented: “The judges liked how a commitment to research was opening up new commercial opportunities, and in particular how a gender-specific trial was helping brands move away from the traditional “shrink it and pink it” approach of feminising male-centric products.”
