Nutrition21's nooLVL® Earns Top Spot in Player1 Launch

nooLVL supports cognitive performance in a new line of gamer supplements


Nutrition21, LLC ("Nutrition21") has announced that its clinically substantiated ingredient nooLVL® is a key component in Player1, the latest introduction by Rule One Proteins, a leader in protein supplements.

For its new line, Rule One Proteins sought out nooLVL for its cognitive benefits, specifically reaction time, accuracy, alertness, visual attention, and focus. Billed as a "Gaming Performance Booster," Player1 is available in Rainbow Respawn and Gummy Grenade varieties. Some of the other ingredients in the product include L-theanine, carotenoids (lutein/zeaxanthin), natural-source, delayed-release caffeine, theacrine, choline and huperzine.

nooLVL is comprised of two components: Bonded Arginine Silicate combined with an additional dose of inositol. Found at high levels in the brain, inositol is a nutrient known for its important role in brain health and function.

Most recently, nooLVL was the subject of a clinical study published in Nutrients, which compared it to placebo following acute ingestion by gamers. Researchers evaluated subjects before and after prolonged video game playing. The double-blind placebo-controlled study showed that nooLVL is both fast and effective — working within 15 minutes and increasing energy††, focus and accuracy.

More specifically, it showed that nooLVL as an oral supplement significantly increased cognitive function and reduced errors as compared to placebo. Another unique advantage for gamers is that nooLVL is stimulant-free, safely increasing energy†† without negatively affecting heart rate or blood pressure.

About this new launch, Todd Spear, VP of Sales, Nutrition21, said, "As the esports market grows, we are excited to see increased demand for innovation for dietary supplements in the space. We are thrilled to have our clinically substantiated nooLVL featured in Rule One Proteins' gamer product for its cognitive performance benefits."

Connor Costello, CMO, Rule One Proteins, said Player1 represents the company's debut in the esports market. "We have a solid position in protein supplements and saw this category as a good opportunity for us. We target gamers, who also share an interest in fitness and health. But other relevant demographics include college students, business professionals, weekend warriors, and anyone looking to stay mentally sharp and focused."
