First Endurance Optygen HP | 120 Capsules
The all-new OptygenHP formula features an 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.Cortisol: Optygen/Rhodiola reduces the primary stress hormone cortisol. This also relates to improvements in the cortisol/testosterone ratio.
Glucose Tolerance Factor: Chromium has been shown in various studies to modulate Glucose Tolerance Factor leading to a modulation in blood glucose.
Adenosine Tri Phosphate (ATP) production: Studies on OptyMax (ES, PN, RR) and Rhodiola extract have all shown an improvement in Adenosine TriPhosphate production. ATP is the primary energy source of the human body.
Recovery/Inflammation: Studies on OptyMax (PN, RR) fruit extract have clearly shown reduction in the key recovery markers measured by MDA analysis, IL-6 and CK. These improved markers mean less soreness, less muscle catabolism and improved recovery from hard training.
Glycogen Sparing: Studies on Eleutherococcus senticosus extract and Rhodiola Rosea extract have shown a significant reduction in glycogen use during exercise.
Glycogen Re-synthesis: Studies on OptyMax (PN, RR) fruit extract have shown a significant improvement in the replenishing of glycogen following exhaustive exercise.
Lactate curve: Studies on Optygen, Rhodiola and Beta-Alanine have shown significant improvements in lactate threshold.
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.
