Olimp Sport Endugen
YOU WANT TO BE PREPARED FOR THE MOST EXHAUSTING COMPETITIONS? SEE HOW ENDUGEN™ WORKS! An in-depth analysis of physical activity of both professional and amateur sportsmen practising endurance sports shows that such activity is characterised by variable parameters, where such actions as dynamic starts, rapid changes of direction, sudden deceleration and acceleration, and also covering long distances at a time with varied speeds are smoothly intermingled with one another, thus building up the total high intensity of physical exertion. In such conditions anaerobic mechanisms of energy acquisition are supported by aerobic processes which in effect become the main source of energy generated by the body for the performed work. As a result, proper supplementation should include high-quality products suitable for endurance sportsmen, allowing them to maintain high levels of anaerobic and aerobic energy performance. FEEL THE DIFFERENCE, RELY ON THE BEST QUALITY! ENDUGEN™ is the answer to these requirements. Its ingredients have been selected to give a synergistic product aimed to: Protect constant parameters of intracellular environment and support mechanisms preventing pH decrease inside the body due to generation of high concentration of lactic acid during intense workout. Acidic hydrogen ions may reduce the generation of ATPs and their transport to myofibrils, thus preventing the efficiency of anaerobic processes of energy acquisition. ENDUGEN™ contains beta-alanin, sodium bicarbonate and potassium salt of ortophosphoric acid (1) which help to maintain constant pH in the cells and the body, thus enhancing physical performance of its users. They have positive effects on aerobic processes of energy acquisition, based on using free fatty acids from adipose tissue in the body. Studies show that greater aerobic physical performance may be attributed to the use of L-arginine (in the form of L-arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (2, 3) in ENDUGEN™ ) or Korean ginseng root extract (4, 5). The supporting effects on physical endurance may also be the result of capsaicin (6) and pure caffeine and that with delayed-release profile, from guarana extract. They support the functions of the nervous system, allowing to maintain high speed of signal transmission and prolonging the time to fatigue . Studies show (7, 8) that such effects are attributable to taurine which is also one of the ingredients of ENDUGEN™ . The synergistic combination of taurine effects with those of the other ingredients with similar impact, i.e. magnesium (in the form of amino acid chelate Albion®), vitamin B2, niacin, vitamins B6 and B12. ENDUGEN™ Combination of precisely selected herbal extracts, with a powerful addition of beta-alanin and sodium bicarbonate, i.e. ingredients with a long history of use in the best products aimed to increase physical endurance and maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), designed for the most demanding sportsmen, especially those practising endurance sports, in which superb physical performance determines victory. This product can be used before and during the most demanding sporting events, and also during intense physical activity (national team acclimatisation sessions, training camps, regular workouts).
