PLT Health Solutions Inc. is launching a water-dispersible version of its Slendacor Weight Management Complex ingredient. 

PLT Health Solutions Inc. (Morristown, NJ) is launching a water-dispersible version of its Slendacor Weight Management Complex ingredient. Slendacor WD, which took two years to develop, now allows formulators to deliver weight management products in a broad range of applications such as powders, shakes, chews, gummies, and shots.

“The vast majority of effective weight management ingredients are only available in capsule formulations because of taste and solubility issues,” said Seth Flowerman, president and CEO of PLT Health Solutions, in a press release. “Since we introduced Slendacor in 2017, we have seen remarkable growth across diverse markets. As Slendacor has gained in popularity, we have received multiple requests from our partners to develop a form of Slendacor that can work in additional innovative application formats to attract new customers and expand the usage occasions. Working with our partner, Laila Nutraceuticals, and their world-class applications capabilities, we are excited to be making this new technology broadly available.”

Slendacor has been evaluated in two randomized, controlled clinical trials, which found significant reductions in weight as early as 14 days into supplementation. However, one of the most important aspects of the study, says PLT, is that the studies includes both men and women.

“Most weight management clinical studies look only at women. Yet in the active/sports nutrition market, men make up the majority of customers,” said Barbara Davis, PLT’s head of clinical and regulatory sciences, in a press release. “Slendacor clinical study results showed strong efficacy for both women and men. The research also hits on other issues that are important to active nutrition consumers – fast results, no loss of lean body mass and significant reductions in pounds and hip and weight circumference. All of these can lead to products that can support body re-shaping – a goal of many of these consumers.”
