Mississauga, Ontario, August 18, 2020 – Sire Bioscience Inc. (CSE:SIRE) (OTC:BLLXF) (FSE:BR1B) (“SIRE” or the “Company”), the parent company of Fusion Nutrition Inc. (“FUSION”), is excited to announce the launch of its Foundation series – a new line of vitamin, mineral, and wellness products. A Canadian-based supplement company with national distribution, FUSION has designed the Foundation series with athletes, bodybuilders, and health & fitness enthusiasts in mind. Foundation will make its debut with its Vita-C and Vita-D3 products, and will later expand to other premium offerings.
“Our company has always stood for more than just aesthetic results,” explains Ryan Herniman, FUSION co-founder. “While we love helping people build muscle and get lean, we also care about holistic health. With our new Foundation series, our focus is on maintaining strong, healthy bodies that support all aspects of life – in and out of the gym.”
The Timing is Right
In the wake of COVID-19, people are more health-conscious than ever and are proactively looking to vitamins and minerals to support improved well-being. According to ResearchAndMarkets.com, single vitamin sales have seen a 166% growth as consumers strive to improve their immune system.1 Not surprisingly, vitamin C – known for its immunity-boosting properties – has been especially popular. Meanwhile, quarantine life has significantly increased the demand for vitamin D as people strive to make up for lost time outdoors.
In another survey completed on March 30, 2020, nearly 20% of consumers who “never” used supplements reported an expected increase in supplement usage in the next three months.2
This increased demand shows no sign of slowing; despite rising recessionary pressures in the market, a long-term sales increase is expected in the vitamin/mineral/supplement category.3
VITA-C: Providing Daily Antioxidant Support
FUSION’s new Vita-C supplement provides daily antioxidant support to help boost immunity, support cardiovascular health, and reduce oxidative stress. Vitamin C is necessary for the growth, development, and repair of all body tissues, making it a truly foundational supplement.
Research also suggests that vitamin C is especially important for athletes who train vigorously, as it can help prevent the dip in immune function that may occur right after exercise. Along with helping to reduce the effects of muscle damage after hard training, vitamin C can also minimize fatigue while enhancing recovery and results.
VITA-D3: Keeping Your Bones and Body Strong
Adequate vitamin D intake is necessary for bone health, skeletal health, and normal, everyday function. Your body also requires vitamin D to absorb calcium.
FUSION’s new Vita-D3 supplement has been formulated to help you meet these requirements. It keeps your whole body strong; supporting your immune system, healthy bones and teeth, and overall health. While vitamin D can be found in the diet from some natural and fortified foods, we often associate it with sun (UVB) exposure.
As with vitamin C, athletes should take care to get enough vitamin D. Research indicates that it may aid in muscle growth and athletic performance.4 Conversely, sub-optimal levels of vitamin D can negatively impact muscle function.
