InnovaFood – Innovative Food supplement

We combine science and knowledge to great products

InnovaFood GmbH was founded in Frankfurt/Germany in 2015. In cooperation with ISME GmbH (research institute for sport, medicine and nutrition), Frankfurt/Germany and Nutricure GmbH (producer of food and supplements ) from Hamburg/Germany, the company‘s goal is to develop, produce and distribute premium functional food products.

The main idea behind the business concept is to support soldiers (such as marines, pilots etc.) who find themselves in critical situations considered as physical and/or mental stress. In such situations, the body reaches a catabolic state and all nutrients are broken down and metabolised into energy. To this end, InnovaFood devised two functional food bars, the Bars #1, to boost physical and mental performance. They contain all food ingredients necessary to maintain or even raise both physical and mental performance. The two bars have been developed together with ISME, which can look back upon 30 years of experience in the research of food ingredients, supplements and special functional nutrients. Both bars are chocolate-free and resistant to temperature changes.

Our Products

Both bars contain the same basic nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats and vitamins derived from highest quality raw materials to guarantee optimum effectiveness of the functional ingredients.

Carbohydrates: Both bars contain around 40% (ca. 40g) carbohydrates, combining a special mixture of short, medium and long-lasting energy-releasing carbohydrates. This mixture was developed to raise the blood sugar on to a constant high level and maintain it there, which then leads to increased performance output over a long period of time.
Fats: Additionally, the bars contain a mixture of fatty acids that will provide soldiers with a fast yet sustainable boost of energy. 

Proteins: Furthermore, the bars also contain a high content of protein. The proteins are mainly used to strengthen the muscles when the body reaches a catabolic state. The high content of naturally derived branched chain amino acids protects the muscle cells from breaking down in the wake of the metabolism.
Vitamins: Both bars contain 50% of the RDA of the vitamins: E, C, B6, B12, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and pantothenic acid.

#1 Physical Performance

More power – better endurance! The special effects of the functional ingredients.

Creatine monohydrate is one of the most com-mon and best researched forms of creatine. It is used in the bar to support people in times of physical stress, when the body cannot produce enough creatine by itself. It is therefore essential to supply additional creatine so as to help soldiers to perform at their highest level (see table 2).

The importance of carnitine is particularly obvious in the transport of fatty acids. It is only with the help of carnitine that long-chain fatty acids can be transported into the mitochondria. Long-chain fatty acids generate energy in the body cells especially in catabolic periods. Further-more, carnitine is known to stabilize or even strengthen the immune system.

Taurine is the most important free amino acid in human cells in quantitative terms. In particular, it has a very high potential for stabilising the cell membrane and assists both calcium transport and the calcium storage capacity. Taurine is a conditio-nally essential amino acid, which is not sufficiently synthesized in situations of physical stress.

The effects of the functional ingredients creatine, carnitine and taurine see to it that a loss of energy turnover is prevented for soldiers in a catabolic state so that they can retain their top physical performance even in critical situations. The latter is crucial for:

InnovaFood #1 Physical Performance

Apart from the basic ingredients, Bar #1 physical performance additionally contains the functional ingredients creatine, carnitine and taurine. These functional ingredients boost soldiers  physical performance, especially during high-intensity and stressful periods or longer times of heavy workload.

#1 Mental Performance

The special effects of the functional ingredients

The guarana fruit has a high natural content of caffeine which is well known to have a stimulating and vitalizing effect on the brain function. Caffeine increases the cognitive functions such as vigilance, attention and concentration especially in times of high mental stress.

The functional importance of phosphatidylserine is mainly attributable to the substance’s high content in the nerve system‘s cell membranes. It fuels the fast communication and transport of information between the brain cells. Many studies have revealed evidence of an increase of the main cognitive functions such as alertness, concentration, learning ability and memory as well as eye-hand coordination. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that it lowers the anxiety level under mental stress (see table 3).

The functional ingredients guarana and phosphatidylserine help soldiers to reduce their mental stress level so that their main cognitive functions perform at the highest level:

InnovaFood #1 Mental Performance

In addition to the basic formula, the InnovaFood ‚Bar #1 mental performance‘ also contains the functional ingredients guarana and phosphatidylserine. These functional ingredients boost the cognitive functions of soldiers, especially in times of mental stress.

Products State-of-the-Art

Our scientific partner, the ISME research institute, was established in 1993. Ever since, it has studied countless functional and non functional nutrients and has published the results in several scientific journals worldwide.

In cooperation with ISME, we chose the best researched and most crucial functional nutrients for periods of physical and mental stress and combined them to create the Bars #1. Our bars are therefore backed by the institute‘s numerous  comprehensive studies, which are all in the dossier accompanying the bars.
