The findings of the new publication

WATTS’UP®, a customized flavonoid extract from sweet orange with enhanced bioavailability, was tested in moderately trained male and female athletes and showed a significant increase in peak power output and anaerobic power during a Wingate Anaerobic Test.

The study was performed at the High-Performance Center of Topsport Limburg in collaboration with Dr. Freddy Troost (Maastricht University).

The purpose of the study, now available in the Journal of the International Society of Sports nutrition, was to assess whether supplementation of WATTS’UP® for 4 weeks improved anaerobic performance in trained male and female athletes.

Participants were given a daily dose of either 400 mg, 500 mg of WATTS’UP®or a placebo for 4 weeks. Exercise performance was tested by means of a 30 second Wingate Anaerobic Test on a WATT BIKE, the gold standard in research.

Peak Force during the first 5 seconds of the exercise significantly increased after 4 weeks of 400mg WATTS’UP® supplementation compared to the placebo, corresponding with a 7.5 % increase.

In addition, the average anaerobic power during the entire Wingate Test significantly increased in the 400mg WATTS’UP® group compared to placebo.

This study is the second RCT-study in trained athletes conclusively showing that WATTS’UP® contributes to exercise performance. WATTS’UP® has been specifically developed to contain a high concentration of the most active isomer hesperidin 2S and an earlier pharmacokinetics study showed that the product is more quickly absorbed.

WATTS’UP® can already be found on the market in several products in the USA and Europe. It can be applied in various finished dosage forms, including effervescent tablets, capsules, RTD sachets and beverages.
