Expand What’s Possible.
Zynamite is a patent-pending proprietary Mangifera indica extract standardized to ≥ 60% mangiferin developed from sustainably harvested mango leaves. A patent-pending, self-GRAS ingredient, it has a portfolio of safety data and has been the subject of 3 pre-clinical and 6 clinical studies. The primary areas of application are in cognitive health products where it provides mental energy, and in active/sports nutrition products where it has been demonstrated to improve both peak power output and mean power output in fatigued and exhausted subjects.

Support for Brain & Body
One of the clinical studies done with Zynamite in the area of cognitive support found that standard reaction time (SRT) was decreased by 50 milliseconds. To put that in perspective, the average driver makes about 20 major decisions during each mile driven – and often has less than 500 ms to react to avoid a potential collision. That’s a 10% advantage.
In several of the sports studies conducted, cycle ergometer sprints were performed, during which peak and mean power output were analyzed. In a fatigue study, peak power was increased by 12.5% using Zynamite. In subjects experiencing simulated exhaustion, peak power was increased by 19.4%. Results were statistically significant between active and placebo groups.
A global search for performance
In creating Zynamite, PLT partner Nektium Pharma began a global search for a functional food ingredient that could positively affect both human cognitive function and sports performance in 2015. This search involved reviews of the international ethnobotanical literature, traditional plants used in Ayurvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Nektium’s own ethnobotanical research, including traditional uses of European medicinal and food plants. Over 150 botanical candidates were examined and a wide number of tests were conducted to understand performance enhancement.
The flavone mangiferin was found to be a prominent compound in a number of the original fifty candidate plants, including in the leaves of the domestic mango, Mangifera indica, and in plants belonging to the genera Hypericum, Salacia, Cyclopia, and Canscora. Mango leaves contain approximately 2-5% mangiferin by dry weight, are available sustainably from cultivated mango trees. The leaves have a long history of safe use as teas used as a tonic, for fatigue and are eaten as a vegetable or salad. The research team at Nektium developed an extract of Mangifera indica leaves standardized to the content of mangiferin – produced at Nektium’s cGMP facilities. This extract was trademarked Zynamite.
Non-stim performance for an over-caffeinated world.
Many mental energy and sports performance ingredients that promote performance in fatigued or exhausted conditions utilize caffeine. Unfortunately, a number of people cannot or do not want to use caffeine because of tolerance or the widely known ‘jitters’ and ‘crash’ associated with this ingredient. Zynamite provides enhanced mental energy and improved performance under fatigued conditions without the stimulant characteristics of caffeine. From a physiological standpoint, it means that when ingested, Zynamite does not increase either the heart rate or blood pressure of test subjects
Power to do more, do it faster, and do it better.
Power is the rate of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) used over a single or multiple maximal efforts against a submaximal load. Peak power is the greatest output or production of work over a given amount of time. Power accounts for a combination of strength, velocity, force, and neuromuscular adaptations. Power tests help create an athletic profile and can also be used as an index of fitness or performance adaptation. Power is especially important since tests that focus on raw strength or speed do not account for the neuromuscular and energy transfer properties captured by power tests. Power tests are important for sports that require explosive energy such as sprinting, weightlifting, football, soccer, basketball, tennis, and other sports.
