Clinical study shows substantial benefit with daily use of Runovia
A study of subjects who presented for orthopaedic evaluation with complaints of various levels of discomfort in the neck, back or joints was conducted to identify any benefit that may be conferred by daily ingestion of an oral hyaluronan supplement. The observational study, performed under the supervision of Douglas W. Kiburz, M.D., was designed to test whether any meaningful benefit was perceived by subjects who had presented for orthopaedic evaluation but were not identified as candidates for immediate surgery. The oral hyaluronan supplement provided to the subjects is now available under the Runovia label. The results indicate that more than 80% of subjects experienced clinically meaningful benefit from daily ingestion of the formulation as directed.
Cogent Solutions Group renews support of university research on molecular basis of hyaluronan action
Cogent Solutions Group has announced that it is funding further university research into the molecular basis of hyaluronan action. The studies, performed under the supervision of one of the global thought leaders in the molecular mechanism of hyaluronan signaling, are designed to add further to the body of knowledge concerning the relationship between hyaluronan signaling and skeletal health. Various indicia of skeletal health will be monitored as a function of oral hyaluronan supplementation, with a view toward establishing more firmly the molecular basis of hyaluronan action to maintain and improve skeletal health. Jim Smith, CEO of Cogent, had the following to say about the study-"With our support of this research, Cogent renews its commitment to be the world leader in elucidating the molecular mechanisms by which hyaluronan supplementation contributes to human and animal health."
Runovia Goes the Distance
Todd Heady, winner of Double Iron Distance (2.4 mile swim / 224 mile bike / 52.4 mile run) triathlons in the US and Canada, and a member of Team Runovia, is the quintessential athlete: he lives to train and compete. Not only did he win the 2004 Champion of the Americas Triathlon Lévis Double Iron Distance Ultra Triathlon, and the Virginia Double Iron Distance Ultra Triathlon in 2005, Todd was also the top US finisher (placing 7th overall) in the 2005 World Quintuple Iron Distance (12 mile swim, 560 mile bike, 131 mile run) championship. Team Runovia expects to be sending Todd to compete in the 2007 World Quintuple Iron Distance championship in Monterrey, Mexico.
Through Headfirst Performance Services, a race management firm he founded and operates with his wife Cynthia, Todd was also race director for the inaugural Runovia Triathlon, held under extraordinary conditions in September 2006. The participants' commitment to completing the competition on course ? despite delays forced by a tornado warning and severe thunderstorms, along with high winds ? is testament to their dedication and to the spirit of Runovia.
Along with Todd Heady, Runovia is committed to put intensely training athletes in a position to perform at their best, whether in their daily training regimen or in competition. That commitment is reflected in Runovia's continued support of leading-edge research into the molecular mechanism of supplement action as well as its sponsorship of the Runovia Triathlon and Team Runovia.
Runovia salutes Todd Heady, the participants in the 2006 Runovia Triathlon, and all athletes who seek to perform at their best!
Runovia Knows Knees!
Although I'm just 24 years old, I've been a competitive runner for 15 years now. As a high-schooler, I struggled with knee problems, which only increased during my college running days (where I was all-conference in cross country and qualified for the NAIA championship in the marathon) and into post-college running. I began to take more and more weeks off from running due to knee problems each year. After being forced to walk the last 10K in two consecutive marathons because the pain was too much, I decided to take up biking and swimming to relieve some of the stress I encountered while pounding away on the roads.
I was enjoying triathlons, but deep down I knew I really wanted to concentrate more on running, including making the leap into the ultramarathon world. But I thought that would never happen.until I was introduced to Runovia.
After taking Runovia twice per day for one week, I could really tell the difference. My knee pain completely went away and I had more bounce in my stride. I slowly increased my mileage, and now I'm back to the level I was during college. I even completed a solo run across the state in July, covering 35 miles per day for a week. The one thing I made sure I carried with me along the way was my Runovia bottle. There's no way I could have completed the run without its help. And now I'm training for a 50-mile race. After that, I plan to do a 100-miler!
Runovia has saved my running.
Cogent Solutions Group, maker of Runovia, creates advanced supplements based on peer-reviewed fundamental and clinical scientific research. The key ingredient in Cogent's product line is hyaluronan, a molecule whose physiological role includes the lubrication and cushioning of joints along with the control of pain and inflammation. Runovia features a polydisperse molecular weight range of hyaluronan optimized for bioavailability and effectiveness. Cogent's mission is to provide nutraceuticals that maximize competitive performance, incorporate leading-edge scientific research, and are easy for the consumer to use.
