NEW YORK — Kyowa Hakko USA Inc. launched VELOX Patented Performance Blend, a combination of its L-Citrulline and L-Arginine.

The blend has been shown to increase nitric oxide levels more rapidly than L-Arginine alone, the company said. It also may increase power output and reduce muscle soreness. It is backed by four US patents.

“Introducing this new performance blend to the market from Kyowa Hakko strengthens our position as a company that is committed to ensuring our customers always receive efficacious, ultra-pure, high-quality ingredients, guaranteed,” said Elyse Lovett, senior marketing manager at Kyowa Hakko USA. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to incorporate VELOX into Kyowa Hakko’s line of innovative branded health ingredients.”

VELOX Patented Performance Blend is non-GMO and vegetarian friendly. It is suitable for a wide range of food, beverage and dietary supplement applications.
