This past Friday was an exciting day for Topical Edge, and one we’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. The clinical trial studying the effects of PR Lotion in athletes’ performance was presented at the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is a huge validator for the efficacy of PR Lotion and the trial itself.
The annual ACSM Conference is the premier conference for everything Sports Medicine-related and is Internationally recognized as the place to hear leading experts and learn about the latest research in every aspect of sports medicine and exercise science. In addition, two abstracts will be published in the peer-reviewed journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise (MSSE), volume 50:5 supplement.
The clinical trial performed by Mark Kern PhD, RD at San Diego State’s Exercise & Nutritional Sciences Department had 20 elite cyclists undergo a series of tests over four visits to determine the impacts of sodium bicarbonate in a transdermal delivery system on exercise performance and Delayed Muscle Onset Soreness (DOMS). In the study, PR Lotion was shown to provide significant changes in athletes’ physiology. The trial white paper can be viewedhere.
Results of the trial concluded that PR Lotion aids with:
Presentation of these trial results at the ACSM Conference is further validation of the findings and rigorous testing protocol that was followed. PR Lotion has proven to be a new way to supplement sodium bicarbonate without the side-effects of oral use.
