1. Mobile Application for Anti-Doping
Doping is a considerable issue in sports. However, the prohibited substances are commonly seen in pharmaceuticals and even Chinese herbal products. The ‘Mobile Application for Anti-Doping’ can be downloaded from both the iOS and Android system. The application allows athletes to check whether the pharmaceuticals are prohibited in- or out-of-competition simply via typing in the product names. In total, more than 40,000 pharmaceuticals are included in the application, and approximate 5,000 of them contain the prohibited substances.
2. Gastroenteritis Defender
Gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms are common among athletes. Both the intensity of sport and the type of sporting activity have been shown to be contributing factors in the development of GI symptoms. Multiple other studies confirm approximately 50% upper gastrointestinal symptom rate for athletes during heavy exercise. ‘Gastroenteritis Defender’ applies the nano-formulation technology to enhance the solubility of andrographolide, the major active ingredient, and reduce its particle size. The developed formulation improves the oral bioavailability of andrographolide. Additionally, supplementing with the andrographolide nano-formulation could effectively prevent gastrointestinal inflammatory disorders.
