What is the new OPTYGEN-HP Prototype?
At First Endurance we believe the best way to test new product prototypes is by getting them in the hands of our sponsored athletes. We solicit constant feedback from our athletes and use this feedback to stay at the forefront of endurance performance. The result: breakthrough endurance nutrition that’s second to none.
This prototype is designed specifically to optimize performance for endurance athletes. The OPTYGEN-HP Prototype delivers the levels of nutrients that have been shown in clinical research to improve oxygen utilization, reduce lactic acid and allow the body to adapt to high levels of physical stress.
What benefits will I experience with this new Optygen-HP Prototype formula?
This formulation is based on the latest human clinical research on elite endurance athletes. The research has shown the following endurance benefits.
- Increase in Endurance and Performance
- Reduces Lactic Acid
- Increase in VO2 Max
- Increase in time-to-Exhaustion
- Increase anaerobic threshold (AT)
- Improves exercise capacity
- Increase maximal oxygen uptake
- Improves oxygen Utilization
- Increases ATP production
Is this formula legal?
Absolutely. All Ingredients in this prototype are legal for use in Olympic events, triathlons, bicycle races, etc. [Based on the banned substance list in the current USADA (US anti-doping association) & (WADA (World anti-doping association)]. In addition we don’t use any excipients or fillers, ensuring all of the ingredients in the product are listed on the label.
Why does the OPTYGEN-HP Prototype contain adaptagens?
The OPTYGEN-HP Prototype formula utilizes two adaptagens that are the primary ingredients in the formulation. Patented Rhodiola Rosea and Cordyceps are both found and cultivated in Tibet. Both these herbs play critical roles in allowing the body to adapt to high levels of physical stress (similar to the stress a body is subject to when climbing Everest). It’s these adaptations to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) which led researchers to also test its effects on elite athletes. Both Rhodiola and Cordyceps have been clinically shown to increase VO2Max, lung function, oxygen utilization and anaerobic threshold significantly.
Why does this formula contain Beta-Alanine?
A number of clinical studies have been conducted to evaluate the effects of beta-alanine supplementation on VO2max, time to exhaustion and lactate concentrations. Subjects supplemented with beta-alanine for six weeks. The group experienced a significant increase in VO2max, an improvement in time to exhaustion and lactate utilization.
How is this new OPTYGENHP prototype formula different than the last OPTYGEN-HP?
- This is the most-powerful OPTYGEN-HP forumula available.
- This new prototype formula contains two strains of Cordyceps: Cordyceps Militaris and Cordyceps Sinensis.
- This new formula no longer contains the Eleuthro extract blend.
- This formula is now 100% VEGAN & ALL NATURAL. We have removed the color and it’s no longer in a bovine capsule.
How do I use this new formula?
You can use this new formula the same way you used the previous formulas. For best results, use this new OPTYGEN-HP formula during all intense training. This formula will allow you to train at a higher level by improving the body’s ability to adapt to physical stress, increasing aerobic threshold and reducing lactic acid. These improvements will help you race at a higher level. For best results, the OPTYGEN-HP prototype should be used consistently for many months leading up to competitive events. If you start taking it a week before a race, benefits will be minimal.
Will I notice anything different vs the previous Optygen-HP formula?
The newest study on Cordyceps Militaris has been shown in a clinical study on trained cyclists to increase VO2, improve ventilator threshold and improve time to exhaustion after three weeks of use. Along with our Beta-Alanine, Rhodiola and OptyMax blend you should experience the following the following improvements when using this new formula vs the previous formula:
-INCREASES PEAK POWER BY 17%
-IMPROVED VENTILATORY THRESHOLD*
*VENTILATORY THRESHOLD refers to the point during exercise at which ventilation starts to increase at a faster rate than VO2 One's threshold is said to reflect levels of anaerobiosis and lactate accumulation. As the intensity level of the activity being performed increases, breathing becomes faster; more steadily first and then more rapid as the intensity increases. When breathing surpasses normal ventilation rate, one has reached ventilatory threshold. Comparison studies of athletic people have shown that your ventilatory threshold occurs at a higher intensity if you are more active or have been training for that exercise
Does the new prototype formula contain ginseng?
No, the new prototype formula doesn’t have Eleuthero Senticosus (Ginseng), which is in the non-prototype OPTYGENHP formula. The prototype formula contains a Cordyceps extract blend instead. The formula does still have panax notoginseng, which not a ginseng.
