Clinical studies reveal improved performance
It all boils down to maximizing cellular energy production within the cell called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) and minimizing Oxidative Stress. An athletes consumption of oxygen goes up dramatically with increased breathing and heart rate during exercise. An estimated 4% of oxygen that we breath works against us and and can create Free Radicals within the cell reducing energy production. Types of Free Radicals that can form are: 1) the SuperOxide Radical, 2) Hydrogen Peroxide, and 3) the Hydroxyl Radical, which is deemed the most dangerous due to its tendency to react with the first molecule it comes in contact with.
When Free Radical occurrences cascade beyond the body’s natural Anti-Oxidant protections – the body falls into a state of Oxidative Stress. While in Oxidative Stress the cells energy producers called the Mitochondria become compromised and energy production becomes challenged. As result increased lactate is produced and Lactic Acid levels increase lowering ph levels within the body resulting in fatigue and premature muscle failure.
If the mitochondria become compromised due to millions of free radicals, they will are not able to maintain the needed ATP production rate for exercise causing the body to use glycolysis for its high ATP needs. When this occurs more lactate (lactic acid) is produced, which means fatigue will quickly set in.
