Supplement and Weight Loss Strategies to Help Active Consumers Stay Lean and Fit

Posted by Nutrasource on Tue, Nov 13, 2018

At this year's SupplySide West, we had the pleasure of presenting on a topic that consistently poses challenges for the health and sports nutrition market: how to reach the sizable, but largely untapped, segment of "fit" customers looking to build lean muscle mass.

The workshop, Helping Active Customers Stay Lean and Fit, was spearheaded by Nutrasource's own Dr. Douglas Kalman, Ph.D., R.D., Vice President of Scientific Affairs, and Dr. Susan Hewlings, Ph.D., R.D., Director of Scientific Affairs, both experts in nutrition, sports nutrition, and fitness as well as claims substantiation to help dietary supplement companies launch products supported by science.

  • Dietary supplement effects on body composition and weight loss, including evidence supporting creatine, green tea, caffeine, and other ingredients
  • Efficacy of multi-ingredient pre-workout supplements for modulating body composition
