The ingredient Fruitflow® was originally discovered at the Rowett Research Institute by Professor Asim Duttaroy. The all natural anti-platelet ingredient Fruitflow was further developed and commercialized by Provexis and DSM. Fruitflow has a health claim approved by the European Food Safety Authority, stating that 150mg of Fruitflow ‘helps maintain normal platelet aggregation, which contributes to healthy blood flow’. It is used by Team Sunweb to help prepare for endurance exercise, because its effects on blood platelets help to reduce the inflammation generated during exercise, which can impact recovery.
After a race or training the riders need to recover quickly. Team Sunweb uses DSM’s PeptoPro® to aid recovery. Peptopro can be absorbed quickly by the body for delivery to the muscles and ensure a rapid recovery. It boosts muscle protein synthesis during and after exercise. Peptopro is included in Born Sportscare's ISO PRO+ drink.
