Benefits for Athletes
Protect muscle and mitochondria to increase strength and energy
We all need the Nrf2 Cell Defense Pathway to prevent unhealthy aging. But if you exercise, participate in sports, or engage in strenuous activities, you especially need Nrf2 to protect you from oxidative damage. It's easy to understand why. Strenuous activity increases oxygen intake and metabolism that generate oxygen free radicals (1). These are harmful, especially to muscle and cellular mitochondria that are required for strength and energy.
Your body neutralizes oxygen free radicals with a small molecule known as reduced glutathione (GSH). When you exercise, GSH can be depleted. And without sufficient quantities of GSH, harmful free radicals accumulate and cause muscle and mitochondrial damage.
The Nrf2 Cell Defense Pathway is designed to replenish GSH rapidly in every cell, even during strenuous exercise. Latarum® probiotic can activate your Nrf2 to maintain GSH for better endurance and reduced recovery times (2).
A "healthy" diet isn't enough
Remember, if you're on a typical modern diet – even one rich in "healthy" foods, your Nrf2 Cell Defense Pathway isn't controlling harmful free radicals as it should. The excessive free radicals generated during intensive exercise can harm muscle and thwart your training goals. You need a functional Nrf2 Cell Defense Pathway to defend you from oxidative damage and maximize the benefits of exercise and training.
Latarum® probiotic, combined with any diet containing coffee and/or apple products, generates a Nrf2 activator that restores your Nrf2 Cell Defense Pathway to protect muscle and mitochondria, maximize the benefits of training and exercise, increase endurance, and naturally improve athletic performance (3).*
