Letter from the President

With two of our champion ingredients now included in sports nutrition supplements, and in two additional sports nutrition ingredients expected to enter the ring in 2018, we at Polyphenolics thought it fitting to invite two boxing legends to help us highlight our ingredients as leading contenders in the sports nutrition category.Boxing legends Larry Holmes and Gerry Cooney will join Polyphenolics staff and a few lucky customers for an unforgettable dinner, great stories, lots of laughter, and a photo opportunity to commemorate your ringside seat during this remarkable evening. This “rematch” of Holmes vs. Cooney will take place during SupplySide West on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas.

We hope that our customers enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime chance to dine with these boxing stars and take advantage of this opportunity to save on our star products during this special promotion. Read on for more details.

President, Polyphenolics

What does Polyphenolics have in common with Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas?

They are both the birth places of heavy weight champs.

  • The Holmes vs. Cooney match, which took place at Caesar’s Palace in 1982, was one of the most highly anticipated fights of its time, and the subject of an intense promotional tour. Larry Holmes had been the World Boxing Council heavyweight champion since 1978. He fought such greats as Muhammad Ali, and came within one win of tying the great Rocky Marciano’s record of 49-0. Cooney, who had been fighting professionally since 1977, experienced a turning point of his career when he beat Ken Norton in 1981 by knockout in round one at Madison Square Garden, giving him the opportunity to challenge Holmes.
  • MegaNatural®-BP is the heavy weight champ of the grape seed extract world.* Three placebo-controlled human clinical trials, including one in a beverage, have found that MegaNatural®-BP supports blood pressure within the normal range.** No other grape seed extract can say the same, since MegaNatural®-BP has a unique structure and composition. MegaNatural®-BP has also shown its effectiveness for use in sports nutrition products due to its ability to help maintain healthy nitric oxide levels, which helps support healthy vasodilation and blood flow.**
  • MegaNatural®-Gold is the golden gloves champion antioxidant.* It has been shown in studies to be superior to other grape seed extracts in protecting blood serum components against oxidation.** MegaNatural®-Gold is a natural option to include when considering supplemental antioxidants as part of a sports nutrition program.*

MegaNatural®-BP and MegaNatural®-Gold will continue to go the distance in the sports nutrition category as clean label, effective ingredients with a reliable farm-to-finish supply chain. Read our Sports Nutrition White Paper for details.
