NEW Optygen HP (2017 formula) - 120 caps
The all-new OptygenHP formula features the exclusive OptyMax Proprietary Matrix. Clinical studies showed a 23% improvement in endurance capacity and a significant increase in energy (ATP) production and VO2max. Athletes who participated in these studies were able to replenish glycogen faster, which leads to improved recovery and improved performance during heavy training, but also provide numerous other benefits.
New and improved OptygenHP 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.
"Especially among professional cyclists and triathletes, this product is known as the most potent VO2 booster on the planet. With its powerful natural adaptogen blend, Optygen HP increases anaerobic threshold and reduced pain when approaching the upper edge of personal performance capacity"
- Increases VO2 max with two types of Cordyceps & the most potent Rhodiola available
- Increases anaerobic threshold
- Modulates cortisol
- Improved glycogen re-synthesis
- Improved inflammatory response and recovery markers (less sore)
- Increase in ATP production
- Sparing of glycogen during exercise
- Improved lactate curve
- Improved insulin sensitivity
Take 4 capsules with a meal every day. Before races, you can take 3 in the morning and 3 before the race.
Optygen reduces the primary stress hormone cortisol. This also relates to improvements in the cortisol/testosterone ratio. With hard training, stress is increased and hence cortisol is increased. Chronically elevated levels of cortisol lead to over-training syndrome, suppressed testosterone, poor recovery, poor sleep, catabolism of muscle and poor performance. Eleuthero, ginseng and Rhodiola have clearly proven significant modulation of cortisol and improvement in cortisol/testosterone ratio in hard training athletes.
Glucose Tolerance Factor
Chromium has been shown in various studies to modulate Glucose Tolerance Factor leading to a modulation in blood glucose. Athletes can experience a more steady supply of energy with no wild sugar swings.
Studies on OptyMax (ES, PN, RR) and Rhodiola extract have all shown an improvement in ATP production. ATP is the primary energy source for the human body. Reduction in ATP leads to fatigue. ATP production is supported through the Optygen proprietary ATPro formulation consisting of ATP production precursors, calcium pyruvate, sodium phosphate, potassium phosphate, and ribose.
Studies on OptyMax (PN, RR) fruit extract have clearly shown a 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.
Studies on Eleutherococcus senticosus extract and Rhodiola Rosea extract have shown a significant reduction in glycogen use during exercise. Athletes can spare glycogen leading to improved endurance and improved substrate utilization.
Studies on OptyMax (PN, RR) fruit extract have shown a significant improvement in the replenishing of glycogen following exhaustive exercise. Improved glycogen re-synthesis means faster recovery and improved performance on back-to-back-to-back hard training days. It’s also important to note that these benefits are experienced with lower insulin levels.
Studies on Optygen, Rhodiola and Beta-alanine have shown significant improvements in lactate threshold. Beta-Alanine’s primary mechanism of action is to increase the limiting rate of lactate synthesis so lactic acid build-up does not slow performance. An improved lactate curve means athletes can hold a faster pace before reaching the anaerobic threshold.
