July 31, 2019

PLT Health Solutions announced that it will be offering an NSF Certified for Sport grade of its RhodioLife Rhodiola rosea ingredient for the U.S. market.

PLT Health Solutions (Morristown, NJ) announced that it will be offering an NSF Certified for Sport grade of its RhodioLife Rhodiola rosea ingredient for the U.S. market. The ingredient represents the first sports certified rhodiola available in the country, says the company. Nektium Pharma (Las Palmas, Spain), PLT’s manufacturing partner, has established an ongoing program with the Banned Substances Control Group (BSCG) to test and certify materials sold as sports grade. The program covers 483 drugs in total, including 272 drugs that are banned by a broad range of sports organizations. The ingredient is marketed to support sustained energy, physical performance, as well as stress management and mood.

“RhodioLife’s unique ‘fingerprint’ composition consistently provides the spectrum of compounds found in the root of the plant that is responsible for its biological activity – including rosavin, rosarin, rosin and salidroside,” said Devin Stagg, chief operating officer of PLT Health, in a press release. “With RhodioLife, not only is the percentage of the primary actives – rosavin and salidroside – the same as the root, but so is the ratio of actives. This new certified sports grade is another way we are responding to the need for trustable transparency, particularly for companies that market into the active and sports nutrition market.”
