First Endurance Optygen HP Gets Better
The all-new First endurance Optygen HP formula features our exclusive OptyMax Proprietary Matrix. Clinical studies showed a 23% improvement in endurance capacity and a significant increase in energy (ATP) production. Athletes who participated in these studies were able to replenish glycogen faster, which leads to improved recovery and improved performance on back-to-back workouts and during heavy training. In addition, subjects experienced less muscle inflammation after high-intensity exercise, resulting in less soreness and faster recovery.
First Endurance introduced the world to Optygen back in 2002. Since then, there have been a number of additional studies done that show Optygen reduces cortisol levels. By modulating cortisol, athletes experience better recovery, an increase in VO2, improved oxygen utilization and enhanced performance
The new OptygenHP now delivers 50% more beta-alanine. A 2012 study evaluated the effects of beta-alanine supplementation on VO2max, time to exhaustion and lactate concentrations. Subjects supplemented with beta-alanine for six weeks. The group experienced a significant increase in VO2max, an improvement in time to exhaustion and lactate utilization. The study concluded that beta-alanine supplementation can reduce lactate concentrations during exercise and thus can improve exercise performance in endurance athletes.
