SURGEX(TM) (http://www.surgexsports.com) was created from Millennium's extensive experience providing advanced nutritional formulas to some of the most prestigious medical institutions throughout the United States The proprietary SURGEX(TM) formula intends to meet the growing demand of elite level professional and amateur athletes and their coaches looking for nutritional support in a marketplace dominated by products with no clinical proof of benefit, unsubstantiated claims, excess protein, stimulants, and banned substances.
In double blind placebo controlled trials at the Rutgers University Human Performance Lab SURGEX(TM) significantly outperformed leading competitive products by assisting in reducing the damaging effects of exercise by improving peak power outputs, lowering oxidative stress/inflammatory markers, reducing fatigue (poor energy recovery) and the breakdown of muscle (post exercise wasting), as well as the lessening of free radical production (oxidative stress). The formula meets NCAA guidelines for use by collegiate athletes and is certified by The Banned Substances Control Group (BSCG) to contain no banned substances.
Millennium's three proprietary, marketed products, which form the Company's Resurgex(R) Continuum of Care, include Resurgex Select(R), Resurgex(R), and Resurgex Plus(R). Resurgex Select(R) is a whole foods-based, calorically dense, high-protein nutritional formula developed for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments. Resurgex(R) and Resurgex Plus(R) are specialized, anabolic nutritional supplements rich in antioxidants that provide nutritional support post-treatment. Millennium is also recently developed a SURGEX(TM) sports nutrition formula, clinically proven to address the nutritional concerns of both professional and amateur elite athletes. These athletes often experience similar symptoms post-workout to those battling immuno-compromised conditions, such as fatigue, loss of lean muscle, oxidative stress, and reduced immune function.
