Athletic Performance/Energy Levels
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is an organic compound that provides energy to drive and support many processes in living cells. Our Olympic RX serum enhances ATP levels by providing antioxidant protection to the mitochondria, resulting in lower system loss and promoting higher capacity for ATP synthesis. What does this mean? More muscle recruitment, energy, and increased endurance while providing you with everything you need for optimal recovery.
Beta-alanine is an amino acid produced naturally in the body. It’s significant and beneficial because it enhances your performance and athletic results. Your body uses it to produce carnosine – a protein building block. Carnosine reduces lactic acid accumulation in your muscles during exercise (that muscle burn you feel when working out), which leads to improved athletic performance.
Muscle acidosis limits the duration of high-intensity activity. For this reason, beta-alanine can be utilized for performance during high-intensity and short-duration exercises. Think HIIT (high-intensity interval training). For example, 18 rowers who supplemented for seven weeks were 4.3 seconds faster than the placebo group in a 2,000-meter race lasting over 6 minutes. Other benefits that have been studied show that beta-alanine helps as a fat blocker, supports the nervous system, promotes brain health, and decreases muscle recovery time. Beta-alanine is one of the powerful ingredients in our Olympic RX and Vortex RX serums.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) is a Nucleotide that aids energy production, endurance, and anti-aging. A study with mice showed that after three weeks of consumption, the mice could run 50% further than before. (what study said this?) NMN helps with blood flow, better oxygenation, and increased energy. NMN is found in our Olympic RX.
NMN aids in the production of Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a coenzyme central to metabolism and found in all living cells (which can increase ATP production). NMN can speed up metabolism. NMN is found in our ELIXIRX and Neural RX serums.
Coenzyme Q10 (aka Ubiquinone 50 and CoQ10) is a vitamin-like substance naturally produced by the body. It is a compound that helps generate energy in cells. CoQ10 has been shown to protect brain cells from oxidative damage and reduce the action of harmful compounds that can lead to brain disease. Furthermore, Coenzyme Q10 has been used to treat heart problems, high blood pressure, Parkinson's disease, gum disease, and genetic diseases such as Huntington's disease and muscular dystrophy. CoQ10 can also reduce the number of migraine headaches and for treating the side effects of anti-cancer drugs. Olympic RX and Neural RX contain Coenzyme Q10.
Oleic acid-based lipofullerenes
Oleic acid-based lipofullerenes. Lipofullerenes support enhanced Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) levels by providing antioxidant protection to the mitochondria, resulting in lower system loss and promoting higher capacity for ATP synthesis. ATP is a source of energy for the body. This lippofullerene is perfect for the high-performance athlete and just as effective for someone wanting to feel their best and do their best when it matters most. These Lipofullerenes are in our Olympic RX, Evolve RX, and Vortex RX Serums.
This antioxidant is found in microorganisms and Marine life. It helps to neutralize harmful free radicals in the body. It is what gives salmon and shrimp their pink appearance. As an antioxidant that is 60 times stronger than Vitamin C, Astaxanthin is used to help provide healthier skin, improve endurance, prevent fatigue, remove inflammation, and improve blood flow.
It acts on reactive oxygen species to reduce proteins that can cause inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. Astaxanthin is a smaller molecule, which means it can cross the blood-brain barrier, protects the brain and the body’s organs, and strengthens cell membranes. It may also help to prevent Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive disorders and slow their onset rate. Astaxanthin also enhances overall mitochondrial energy production, which means that it improves every function in your body. Wizard Sciences’ Olympic RX and Vortex RX Serums both contain Astaxanthin. Wizard Sciences’ Olympic RX and Vortex RX Serums both contain Astaxanthin.
Serrapeptase (Serratiopeptidase) is a powerful ingredient in our Neural RX. While Serrapeptase is known mainly for its powerful anti-inflammatory aspects, it is also being looked at more and more for its possible defense and reversal of neurological disorders by helping the battle against the reduction of BDNF. You can find Serrapeptase in our Olympic RX, Evolve RX, and Vortex RX serums.
Carbon 60 (aka C60) is a Buckminsterfullerene. It has a cage-like fused-ring structure made of twenty hexagons and twelve pentagons, and resembles a soccer ball. C60 supports cognitive function and provides access to potent antioxidant protection for your body’s mitochondria while at the same time decreasing inflammation. It’s an incredible anti-aging tool.
Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (aka PQQ) is a helper molecule. Similar to how CoQ10, Glutathione, and Vitamin C work to help stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis and aid in energy production, PQQ is a molecule that mitochondria rely on. Mitochondria are the cell's powerhouses, and PQQ helps them produce energy more efficiently.
PQQ activates mitochondrial biogenesis, which is the regeneration of mitochondria in aging cells. PQQ also protects cells from oxidative stress and is, thus, antiaging. PQQ triggers CREB, which is a protein that aids in the formation of neural pathways and long-term memory. A study done with middle-aged and elderly participants found that PQQ led to significant increases in performance on a test that strictly measures reasoning and reaction times. It’s believed to occur because it increases the nerve growth factor in our cells. PQQ has also been found to protect neurons, mediate neurodegenerative diseases, and protect against neurotoxicity induced by other toxins, including mercury. Many scientists consider PQQ a neuroprotective compound and can be used to successfully fight against Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and cognitive injuries. PQQ is in every bottle of Olympic RX and Neural RX.
