Lion’s Mane, a mushroom that has been used for many years in traditional Chinese medicine, has only recently been brought into the spotlight as discoveries have been made about its ability to increase human performance. A more thorough insight into the benefits of Lions Mane include, increased cognitive function, reduction in inflammation and fatigue during physical activity.
The addition of Pine Pollen to the formulation emphasises the benefits of Lions Mane by further reducing fatigue. It is rich minerals such as calcium and magnesium as well as a variety of B vitamins and also impacts natural testosterone levels. The increase in natural testosterone was reported due to a discovery of 0.8 micrograms of testosterone found per 10 g of Pollen. A rise in testosterone can have significant impacts on muscle recovery, male fertility and protein synthesis.
Cordyceps, an ingredient that has also been highly used in Chinese medicine is said to aid fatigue, low sex drive, and a variety of illnesses. It has become increasingly popular due to its potential to boost exercise performance and the way that your body uses oxygen during exercise. A study tested the impact on exercise capacity in 30 healthy adults with one group receiving a synthetic strain of Cordyceps, CS-4, and the other a placebo. The study concluded with a reported 7% increase in VO2 max found in participants given the CS-4. Further studies were also conducted with Corcyceps-containing mushroom blend and Vo2 was reported at an increase of 11%.
With the addition of BHB Ketones to this product, you can obtain the cognitive benefits associated with a ketogenic diet and elevated volume of ketones. For athletic performance, being in a fat adaptive state/ketosis has been proven to be more effective for weight loss and endurance as ketones provide a more efficient source of energy.
In athletic performance, an increase in VO2 max (total oxygen uptake) can have a considerable effect on aerobic endurance and cardiovascular fitness. Aerobic capacity is greatly impacted by physical exercise and directly correlates to increased mitochondrial volume. Through the ageing process, a reduction in mitochondrial volume is seen thus resulting in muscle atrophy. To investigate further, a study was conducted to view the impact of l-epicatechin in 12-month-old mice and reducing mitochondrial degeneration and associated health impacts, such as weight gain and decrease in neat metabolism. After a 15-day administration of l-epicatichin as opposed to a placebo, the studies concluded a delayed onset muscle fatigue as well as increased mitochondrial volume.
A multi-function, versatile product that can be added to any stack or training regimen.
