Performance nutrition experts The Turmeric Co. have been confirmed by the English Institute of Sport (EIS) as a Preferred Performance Nutrition Supplier, with the two organisations also set to collaborate on research.
The Turmeric Co. will work with the Performance Nutrition Team at the EIS, who provide nutrition support to over 40 high performance sports and aim to set the standard for performance nutrition in the UK.
The Turmeric Co. is the UK’s leading producer of naturally produced turmeric shots, which are used by a number of professional football clubs and elite athletes to enhance their recovery and holistic health. Founded by professional footballer Thomas Robson-Kanu, The Turmeric Co. has spent over a decade perfecting their range of turmeric shots, using raw and fresh turmeric root combined with other fresh ingredients.
Thomas Hal Robson-Kanu, Founder and CEO at The Turmeric Co. said: “The team at the EIS are leaders at developing and nurturing talent, and place nutrition of the upmost importance, so to have been recognised and welcomed by them is a huge moment for us. We can’t wait to work closely with Mike Naylor and his team to ensure that the talent at the EIS will benefit greatly from turmeric, and its many qualities.”
Head of Performance Nutrition at the EIS Mike Naylor added: “This announcement comes at a very exciting time for us, as we continue to increase the variety of nutrition support we offer our sports and athletes, with an eye on major championships on the world stage.
“We operate at the forefront of performance nutrition and we know that The Turmeric Co. have a similar passion and drive. We are looking forward to working closely with Thomas and the team over the coming months, in particular on research projects in this area.”
The Turmeric Co. also partners with British Gymnastics as well as professional football clubs including Swansea City, Brentford F.C, Rotherham United and Premiership Rugby’s Sale Sharks and Leicester Tigers. The company also recently announced three rugby league partners, working with Salford Red Devils, Wigan Warriors and Challenge Cup winners St. Helens.
