The drink uses natural components that promote the blood flow to muscles which results in alertness and response time for the person consuming it, the university said.
“Cedarville University has excellent research facilities and works to collaborate across departments as well as with organizations that align with our university mission,” said Dr. April Crommett, associate professor of exercise science. “This particular project will allow students to develop lab skills while also advancing a product that has good potential for filling a niche in the pre-workout supplement arena.”
Rotello and the school of pharmacy will research the alternative through the Center for Pharmacy Innovation. This is a collaboration with the Cedarville exercise science program to discover if the formula works as intended.
The pilot study began at the end of January and will continue throughout February.
