Lonza announced today the inclusion of its Carnipure™ L-Carnitine in Gaspari Nutrition’s new multivitamin mineral formula, Anavite™. Designed to be the ultimate performance enhancing multivitamin supplement, Anavite™ is formulated with two grams of elemental L-Carnitine provided by Lonza’s Carnipure™ tartrate per dose to boost vasodilation and slash recovery time.
Benefiting from enhanced endurance and post-exercise muscle recovery, athletes and “weekend warriors” alike can use Anavite™ for optimal, clinically validated doses of Carnipure™ and Beta-Alanine. This blend of performance ingredients is formulated to simultaneously increase aerobic and anaerobic athletic performance.
“The addition of Lonza’s Carnipure™, the premium grade of L-Carnitine tartrate, to Gaspari Nutrition’s Anavite™ creates a product capable of amplifying the workout results of athletes looking to use products with proven, documented science behind their ingredients,” said Kevin Owen, Ph.D., NAFTA Head of Technical Marketing and Scientific Affairs at Lonza. “Carnipure™ is supported by a wealth of scientific studies showing its role in sports endurance, exercise recovery and cardiovascular health, which makes it a natural fit for Anavite™.”
“Anavite™ is actually a three-in-one supplement, increasing vasodilation and muscle oxygen consumption, while boosting androgen receptor density, and maximizing aerobic and anaerobic sports performance,” said Rich Gaspari, President and Chief Executive Officer at Gaspari Nutrition. “Lonza’s Carnipure™ provides a seamless addition to Anavite™ and allows us to provide the industry with a high potency multivitamin and mineral formula.”
