Los Angeles, CA—NutraIngredients Asia handed out their “Ingredient of the Year: Sports Nutrition” award to Ixoreal BioMed for their KSM-66 at their conference in Singapore.

KSM-66 is, according to Ixoreal BioMed, the most bioavailable ashwagandha on the world market.

The editor-in-chief of NutraIngredients, Gary Scattergood, said that “The awards were designed to recognize and celebrate the industry’s biggest commercial successes, best product developments, and brightest research,” according to Ixoreal’s press release.

Kartikeya Baldwa, the director of Ixoreal, said that they were humbled and honored to be recognized with the award. “KSM-66 is faithful to traditional ayurvedic practices and production methods.” Their scientists, he said, work to demonstrate the upsides of these traditional methods as well as to advance our understanding of ashwagandha.

KSM-66 has been demonstrated through 16 clinical studies to reduce stress, enhance muscle strength and size, and to enhance recovery, endurance, focus, and concentration. It is used in sports nutrition supplements from brands like Optimum Nutrition, Weider, GNC, Cellucor, MusclePharm, and Beast Sports.
