Rhodiola rosea is a legendary adaptogen that comes from the polar Arctic regions of Eastern Siberia. Also known as Golden root or Rosea , Rhodiola was highly valued by traditional Arctic tribes as a strengthening tonic to increase physical and mental stamina. Widely used by Russian athletes especially, Rhodiola supports the nervous system and helps to boost mental function by increasing blood-supply to the brain.
Rhodiola is an adaptogen, it increases energy, is cardio-protective, and helps to normalize heart rate after intense exertion. Rhodiola rosea has been categorized as an adaptogen by Russian researchers due to its observed ability to increase resistance to a variety of chemical, biological, and physical stressors. Its claimed benefits include mood enhancing, maintain healthy cardiovascular function, enhance memory and maintain healthy brain function. Research also indicates Rhodiola as useful in improving work performance, improve sleep, improve appetite, reduce irritability, reduce occasional headaches and fatigue.
In research studies, rhodiola rosea extract was examined for its effects on the pattern of stress-induced cardiac damage, as measured by an accumulation of certain enzymes in the heart. Rhodiola rosea helped to prevent stress-induced cardiac damage. Specifically, the extract helped to prevent stress-induced release of proteins, and inhibited higher enzyme levels, both of which can damage heart tissue. These findings demonstrate stress-inhibiting and cardioprotective benefits of Rhodiola rosea.
The best known medicinal action of Cordyceps is for the increase of physical stamina. The Chinese national games in 1993 brought this mushroom to the attention of the worlds' sports authorities. A group of nine women athletes who had been taking Cordyceps shattered NINE WORLDS RECORDS! The record for the 10 km run was beaten by an unprecedented 42 SECONDS. Not too bad in a world where records are usually broken by a few hundredths of a second!
The number of stories of amazing increases in sports performance are many. There has even been talk of banning it from sporting events as an unfair advantage to those who can get it!
Eleutherococcus Senticosus, otherwise known as Siberian Ginseng, is an adaptogen which has a wide range of health benefits attributed to its use. E. senticosus contains eleutherosides which can fit into hormone receptors. Supporters of E. senticosus in the scientific and medical communities claim it possesses a variety of medicinal properties, such as:
* increased endurance
* memory improvement
* radiological and chemical protection
Eleuthero when taken regularly, enhances immune function, decreases cortisol levels and inflammatory response, and promotes improved cognitive and physical performance. Many studies have shown that eleuthero increases endurance performance and time before failure in intense periods of strenuous physical activity. Eleuthero has been used by many world-class athletes to improve athletic performance.
In human physiology Beta Alanine is the only naturally occuring beta amino acid. Beta Alanine is a constituent of both L-Carnosine and D-Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5). Owing to the fact that Beta Alanine is a precursor in the synthesis of L-Carnosine, clinical studies have demonstrated that Beta Alanine supplementation can significantly increase L-Carnosine blood levels, reduce symptoms of fatigue during and following strenuous exercise, and increase total muscular work performance during high intensity physical activity. Clinical studies have also demonstrated that Beta Alanine when taken in two or more divided doses of between 500 milligrams to 1 gram per dose can significantly increase intramuscular L-Carnosine content in amounts ranging from 18% to more than 200% in some individuals.
Carnosine plays a critical role in the muscular failure process because it acts as a buffering agent that cushions muscle tissue from acidity, thus delaying muscular failure. Beta Alanine effectively boosts intramuscular carnosine levels, which is responsible in fighting/buffering fatigue-causing Hydrogen Ions, allowing for extreme muscular strength, power and endurance. Increasing intramuscular carnosine levels can improve the buffering capacity of a muscle by as much as 20%. As such, Beta Alanine supplementation can dramatically delay fatigue and failure, and improve muscular working capacity and performance.
Citrulline is an amino acid that is an important intermediate in the urea cycle, functioning along with Arginine and Ornithine to rid the body of ammonia, a byproduct of strenuous cardiovascular and physical activity. Because Citrulline is a precursor of Arginine, it provides a readily available source material for Arginine production, which in turn, can be used for the production of Nitric Oxide (NO). NO plays a fundamental role in vascular function and blood flow. Citrulline therefore, not only supports detoxification pathways, but also supports NO production and a healthy cardiovascular system.
Arginine is an amino acid that enhances muscle synthesis and recovery. Arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide (NO) synthesis. The potential benefits of increased NO levels include increased circulation to working muscles, increased nutrient uptake and protein synthesis. Alpha Ketoglutarate (AKG) combines with ammonia generated by intense muscle activity to create glutamine, an amino acid important for energy fuel and muscle recovery. Arginine is a nonessential amino acid that influences several metabolic factors that are important to athletes. Arginine was most famous for its role in stimulating the release of human GH (somatotropin). Recent research has highlighted the importance of Arginine AKG in NO production. An additional function of Arginine AKG is its role as a precursor in creatine production. Daily ingestion of L-Arginine AKG has been shown to increase the body’s creatine stores. This may lead to improvements in performance for athletes.
Creatine Gluconate is a molecule of creatine bonded to a molecule of glucose [or gluconic acid]. It is the most easily absorbed creatine ever created. From the name itself, this product is simply creatine bonded to sugar or glucose. It maintains all the properties and gives the same benefits found in any other type of creatine, only with a much better absorption rate as its main edge over its counterparts. Since sugar helps the uptake of creatine in the cell, the result is creatine that gets absorbed into the system easily and almost completely. Owing to creatine gluconate being bonded to a fast-digesting carb which is glucose, the amount of creatine uptaken into the muscles is significantly increased.
Creatine Gluconate essentially works just like other creatine sports supplements as an aid in increasing muscle endurance significantly, improving high-energy sports performance, increasing energy levels and speeding up recovery.
1,3-Dimethylamylamine is a derivative of geranium oil which resembles the body’s own chemical messenger, epinephrine (adrenaline). Like adrenaline, 1,3-Dimethylamylamine is a powerful CNS stimulant, for added energy, increased clarity and a boost in physical performance, especially valuable to athletes during calorie restriction or when a high level of focus is needed.
Taurine is an amino acid like glutamine that is earning more and more respect from athletes and scientists. Taurine has several critical functions and has a synergistic relationship with creatine in that it expands your cells by helping the muscle cell itself hold more water, increasing hydration in strenuous athletic training and competition. For an athlete put under intense cardio strain, this is significant because hydrated cells allow athletes to train and fight harder for longer periods of time with more intensity.
Be very careful not to write off or overlook one of the most effective performance enhancing supplements known to man. Consider that Caffeine's ability to improve physical performance is well known among well-trained athletes. Caffeine is able to significantly increase endurance and speed in many situations. Caffeine has been used for years by runners and endurance athletes to aid in the metabolism of fatty acids. In essence, anyone who needs to stay awake and be alert, from students who are studying for their finals to athletes who need an extra boost, can take advantage of caffeine’s stimulant properties. CardioForce contains a mild serving of caffeine - approximately equivalent to one cup of coffee to help increase your physical and mental performance.
B-Vitamins are well known among endurance athletes. The B vitamins are necessary in order to:
* Support and increase the rate of metabolism
* Maintain healthy skin and muscle tone
* Enhance immune and nervous system function
* Promote cell growth and division—including that of the red blood cells that help prevent anemia.
Potassium has been shown to help maintain healthy blood pressure. Potassium may help reduce muscle soreness that results from training. Any deficiency in potassium levels may result in decreased strength, and the early onset of exercise induced fatigue. Potassium helps to regulate water balance and is also needed for the synthesis of dietary proteins.
