Natural Alternatives International Announces Participation as Exhibitor and Sponsor in the 2019 Integrative Healthcare Symposium
CARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Natural Alternatives International, Inc. (“NAI”) (Nasdaq: NAII) today announced its participation in the 15th edition of the Integrative Healthcare Symposium, the only event where multi-disciplinary practitioners come together as a cohesive community to learn and collaborate on insights and techniques related to the cutting edge of holistic healthcare. This three-day event will be held on February 21-23, 2019, at the New York Hilton in Midtown, New York.
In late 2018, NAI launched their healthy aging & wellness expansion with SR CarnoSyn® beta-alanine, a patented, sustained release form of beta-alanine, which combines naturally with histidine in the body to produce carnosine. A powerful natural antioxidant, carnosine has been rigorously researched and clinically proven to provide support for muscle, cognitive and systemic function.
“Our attendance at the Integrative HealthCare Symposium underscores our commitment to the healthcare practitioner market and providing professional education regarding the myriad of health benefits that can be derived by supplementing with beta-alanine,” stated Nicole Burbank, CarnoSyn® Brands Vice President.
NAI will showcase SR CarnoSyn® for everyday wellness and healthy aging at booth TT9 and is sponsoring a Lunch & Learn with Dr. Jay Hoffman on Friday, February 22, from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM, in the Morgan Suite. The session, “How Beta-Alanine Supplementation Supports Healthy Aging via Supporting Cognitive Function and Muscle Health,” will focus on the scientific studies regarding beta-alanine supplementation and its role in generating carnosine in the body to support overall systemic health, cognitive function and muscle support. The efficacy of the patented delivery system of beta-alanine as SR CarnoSyn® will also be presented.
Session Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to explain how beta-alanine supplementation can lead to support of cognitive function to benefit healthy aging and wellness.
2. Participants will be able to explain the best delivery form of beta-alanine to increase carnosine content in tissue.
3. Participants will be able to discuss the efficacy of beta-alanine ingestion on maximizing physical performance in different age and training groups, including competitive and tactical athletic populations.
