BIOACTOR and TOPSPORT LIMBURG start collaboration on new sports nutrition product line

BIOACTOR Sports Nutrition Sciences and TOPSPORT LIMBURG collaborate on testing innovative sports nutrition products in athletes


MAASTRICHT, November 8, 2017


BIOACTOR Sports Nutrition Sciences (‘BIOACTOR’) and TOPSPORT LIMBURG announced earlier this year the start of a collaboration to jointly test innovative sports nutrition concepts in athletes.

The first product concept that is being tested at TOPSPORT LIMBURG’s Performance Center is MUSCLE’UP®, a peptide product for recovery. BIOACTOR obtained a grant from the Limburg Business Development Fund (LBDF) to execute a translational research project with MUSCLE’UP®. The MUSCLE’UP® project aims to develop a product with clinical results in athletes and a validated production process at an acceptable cost of goods.

Both parties will also collaborate on further validation in athletes of BIOACTOR’s performance product WATTS’UP®. WATTS’UP® was recently tested in 2 studies in athletes and showed significant improvement in total power produced, both in endurance and strength athletes.

Geert Ruigrok, managing director of TOPSPORT LIMBURG comments: “BIOACTOR’s scientific approach to sports nutrition makes them an ideal partner for developing targeted nutrition for elite athletes”.

Hans van der Saag, CEO of BIOACTOR comments: “BIOACTOR is delighted to work with TOPSPORT LIMBURG, as our products must meet the needs of elite athletes. TOPSPORT LIMBURG provides a unique ecosystem of best in class sports facilities and top athletes”.

Van der Saag further states: “BIOACTOR wants to bring real innovation to the sports nutrition industry. BIOACTOR tests all of its products in scientifically robust studies in athletes working with partners like TOPSPORT LIMBURG and the Department of Movement Sciences at Maastricht University. We have a pipeline with innovations both in performance and recovery and are planning to launch at a tune of 1 new product each year.”

BIOACTOR, based in Maastricht, Netherlands, is a product development company that develops and supplies proprietary bioactive formulations to the health and sports nutrition industry. All BIOACTOR’s products are clinically tested, doping-free and from natural origin.
