  • Optimizes performance during training and competitions.
  • Improves energy production.

 

 

Cafeïne:

  • Recent research has shown that caffeine can enhance performance levels. In general, it can be said that endurance training sessions can be continued longer through caffeine intake.
  • Possible working mechanism:
    1) Caffeine stimulates adrenaline secretion by the adrenal glands. As a result, free fatty acid oxidation increases due to the contracting muscles and this ultimately results in a glycogen‐sparing effect.
    2) Caffeine has a psychostimulating effect, through which the “pain threshold” can be extended.
    3) Caffeine stimulates the release of calcium reserves in the muscle cells, as a result of which the calcium can smooth the muscle contractions.
    4) In a recent study, published in J. Appl. Physiol. 2005, Prof A Jeukendrup et al. demonstrates that caffeine increases the exogenous carbohydrate oxidation, possibly through an improved intestinal absorption of the sugars.
  • Dose: The caffeine dose tested in properly conducted studies showing an improvement in the endurance levels, varies between 3 mg and 9 mg per kg of body weight.
    The conclusion of these studies is: “a caffeine dose of 3 mg/kg body weight has an ergogenetic effect. Higher doses usually do not deliver any added value”.
  • Important remark:
    1) Regular use of caffeine leads to habituation. Abstaining from caffeine consumption for one week can remove this habituation effect to a significant extent.
    2) Caffeine has a strongly diuretic effect when the body is at rest, but not during exercise. During exercise, the released catecholamines remove the diuretic effect of caffeine (Wemple et al., Int. J. Sport Med. 1997)

 

Rodiola rosea:

• Rhodiola rosea: Rhodiola rosea is one of the most important and most studied “adaptogenetic” plants. The dried extract of the root contains polyphenols, of which rosavine and salidroside are the most important active substances.
In a recent, double‐blind, randomized and placebo‐controlled study carried out in the “Laboratory for Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics” of the KU Leuven, the researchers concluded that: Acute Rhodiola rosea intake improved the stamina (= time until exhaustion) and the VO2 max in healthy volunteers.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine:

• The biological oxidation of short and long free fatty acid molecules in our cells takes place predominantly in the mitochondria. The fundamental role of carnitine is to ensure the transport of fatty acids from the cytosol to the mitochondrial matrix, where they undergo beta‐oxidation (fatty acid oxidation). Acetyl‐L‐carnitine is one of the most physiologically active forms of carnitine and passes through the diverse cellular membranes and the blood‐brain barrier better than carnitine. Acetyl‐L‐carnitine fulfils a central role in supplying energy to the body.

L-taurine:

  • Taurine provides the primary defence against the chlorine radical and protects red blood cells against the breakdown of oxygen.

 

DL‐phenylalanine:

  • DL‐phenylalanine is a compound of D‐phenylalanine and L‐phenylalanine in a 50/50 ratio. It is a non‐toxic, non‐addictive painkiller because it inhibits the enzymes which break down endorphins.

 

Co-enzyme Q10:

  • Coenzyme Q10 is an enzyme which is essential for one of the last steps in the conversion of food into energy (ATP). It is a coenzyme of the innermost mitochondrial enzyme complexes and is therefore involved in oxidative phosphorylation.
  • Scientific studies reveal that coenzyme Q10 supports the pumping function of the heart.
