NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In a move to bring the highest level of nutritional science, testing and products for optimal performance, Thorne Research and ALTIS are pleased to announce an exciting and exclusive partnership for 2018.
As the exclusive nutritional supplement provider for ALTIS, a world-class training and coaching program for elite track & field athletes, Thorne will provide products with the highest level of certification recognized in sport as well as educational materials, innovative testing and integration within the ALTIS education and coaching programs.
“The success of all track & field athletes is measured in milliseconds and inches, where every advantage counts, and Thorne is equally excited and privileged to partner with ALTIS in helping their athletes achieve their performance goals,” states Thorne CEO, Paul Jacobson. “Our recent partnership with Drawbridge Health, in addition to our testing platform WellnessFX, will allow Thorne and ALTIS to gain invaluable insight into the metrics and data assessment needed to understand how to maximize optimal performance for these elite athletes.”
Thorne’s product portfolio for ALTIS includes those that are NSF Certified for Sport®, which ensures product purity and that the products do not contain unsafe levels of contaminants and are free of more than 200 banned or prohibited substances. The NSF Certified for Sport® program is recognized by the NFL, MLB, NHL, PGA, LPGA, and Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports.
“Our partnership with Thorne will assure that ALTIS athletes are receiving high quality, safe, clean, carefully monitored and tested nutritional supplements,” said ALTIS Performance Director Stuart McMillan. “In addition, the exciting testing insights Thorne can provide will allow ALTIS coaches and athletes the ability to gain a perspective on performance that is unparalleled in our sport.”
As athletes reach the highest levels of competition and become more efficient in their sport, they stress specific groups of muscles day in and day out. This daily process of stress and repair requires that their bodies receive very specific ranges of vitamins, minerals, and botanicals in order to perform optimally.
The Thorne and ALTIS partnership begins in January 2018.
