IMPROVE PERFORMANCE, ENDURANCE, and RECOVERY*
BioSuperfood is utilized by athletes of all kinds, both amateur and professional, to help maintain muscle mass and improve recovery from strenuous exercise. Strenuous sports and training sessions for endurance and strength often can cause muscle injuries, which are exacerbated by the simultaneous production of free radicals. Athletes who consume BioSuperfood, which contains high levels of the antioxidant astaxanthin, the “king of the carotenoids,” can expect better performance due to increased muscle endurance.
The effect of antioxidants on the capacity for physical performance has been investigated in a number of studies. One such study was performed in Sweden in 1997 to demonstrate positive clinical effects of natural astaxanthin. In a group comprised of 40 young healthy men, daily supplementation with astaxanthin was given to half of the study group for a period of six months. The results from the study showed a significant increase in muscle endurance among the men supplemented with astaxanthin compared with the men not supplemented. BioSuperfood has been observed to heighten muscle mass and strength in athletes who carry out regular resistance training, according to hundreds of athletes of all kinds from all over the world that have been using it. Best of all, BioSuperfood has been proven to be 100% safe. It has no known side-effects, and it has produced a variety of positive effects in large number of scientific studies including:
- Reduced oxidative damage*
- Reduced pain and faster recovery from exertion*
- Increased endurance, strength, and stamina*
- Prevention of exertion related injuries*
- Increased oxygenation and performance*
- Maintained muscle mass gains*
- Prevention of arthritis due to injuries*
- Stabilizes blood sugar levels, allowing greater access to stored body fat*
- Significantly raises lactic acid threshold*
- High antioxidant levels increase endurance and delay fatigue*
- High assimilation rate of absorption means reduced intake of other “bulk” foods, resulting in weight stabilization*
- Balanced Essential Fatty Acids content normalizes hormones, resulting in strength gains and shortened recovery periods*
- Protein content is the most assimilable ever measured, which means less total protein intake needed*
- Nervousness, irritability, or fear before an event or competition replaced by calm power*
- No toxicity: 100% natural and organic
- Sports and athletics legal as a natural green superfood
