Useful for reducing inflammation and oxidative stress produced by sports activity
Food supplement based on Turmeric, NAC, Ribes nigrum and Astaxanthin with antioxidant action, useful for reducing inflammation and oxidative stress produced by sports activity, while slowing down the cellular aging processes.
Thanks to the synergistic action of its latest generation plant extracts, Performance slow aging counteracts the risk of muscle damage (DOMS) and of reduced sports performance capacity. Performance slow aging makes it possible to slow down premature ageing and counteract the oxygen free radicals produced by intense training sessions, which often induce high levels of oxidative stress with negative repercussions on the musculoskeletal system and on the immune system, consequently increasing recovery times and the likelihood of injury.
PROPERTIES OF THE INGREDIENTS:
- TurmacinTM: standardised extract of turmeric longa titrated at 12.5% in turmerosaccharides, soluble turmeric polysaccharides with high bioavailability, and with specific anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving activity specific to the osteoarticular level, partly due to PGE2 inhibition in the synovial fluid, and the inhibition of IL-12, COX2 and IFN-y, responsible for chronic self-sustained inflammation. Use in athletes has resulted in improved performance and a decrease in pro-inflammatory interleukins, such as interleukin-1β, interleukin-6 and TNF∝, which are associated with muscle cell damage.
- N-acetylcysteine (NAC): has an antioxidant action, serves as a precursor of intracellular cysteine with consequent increase in the production of reduced glutathione (GSH), an essential process for liver detoxification. In some studies, it has been shown to reduce concentrations of muscle damage markers (LDH and CPK) after physical activity, it reduces free iron levels, the feeling of fatigue, and post-workout concentrations of inflammatory cytokines. In addition, a general improvement in performance in submaximal tasks was observed in trained individuals.
- Astareal®: (Haematococcus pluvialis tallo) titrated at 5% in astaxanthin, a xanthophyll carotenoid with antioxidant properties that interacts positively with mitochondrial membranes, where it accumulates and protects them against oxidative stress, and also increases energy production in the mitochondria, by promoting the beta-oxidation of fatty acids. Studies confirm that athletes using this nutraceutical are able to improve the oxidation of fat into energy and therefore conserve precious glycogen. Astaxanthin supplementation is particularly indicated in endurance sports, but also in mixed sports, such as football, as it may make it possible to conserve glycogen for when it is needed most.
- Blackcurrant: (Ribes nigrum L.) dry extract titrated at 35% in anthocyanins: blackcurrant anthocyanins exert their action by attenuating muscle damage and inflammation, with proven efficacy that can be quantified by CPK blood tests. It has a natural “cortisone-like’’ action and it inhibits the production of type E prostaglandins and iNOS, which are fundamental for controlling excessive inflammation in athletes who want to avoid muscle injuries. The anthocyanins and polyphenols present in Blackcurrant exert a potent inhibitory action against free radicals, thus facilitating the anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic processes. In addition, blackcurrant anthocyanin supplementation also appears to have a positive effect on sleep quality.
