Here are three of the newest nutrition products available in 2010 that may be worth giving a try.
Fortis Vita’s Ocinna $49.95
Fortis Vita’s Ocinna tablets are formulated to fight inflammation naturally by infusing omega-3 fish oil, vitamin D and cinnamomum cassia (concentrated cinnamon) into a single potent tablet. The precise combination of these three ingredients is scientifically formulated to diminish joint inflammation, regulate blood sugar and enhance blood circulation to promote recovery, heart and joint health as well as offset the oxidative stress of intense training.

The Right Stuff $26.99 for a pack of 10 capsules
Astronauts face dehydration in space due to microgravity and the physical strain of re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere. Now, the same formula they use to stay properly hydrated is available for endurance athletes. Fifteen years of meticulous testing by NASA laboratories led to the formulation of The Right Stuff, a blend of sea salt and potassium in a sugar- and carbohydrate-free liquid form. The recycled plastic vials can be stowed anywhere—from spacesuits to cycling kits—and provide an on-the-go option for superior rehydration. Therightstuff-usa.com
Clif Shot Roks $2.99 per packet
Clif Bar’s newest product, Clif Shot Roks, offers tasty protein in small, bite-sized pieces. With 2 grams of whey protein in each bite or 20 grams in each 10-piece packet, you can eat as much or as little post-workout protein as you want. Clif Shot Roks come in three delectable flavors: chocolate, peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie dough, and each one is coated with a delicious outer shell that keeps them from melting in your pocket while you finish your workout.
