It's so effective, there's a 100% performance guarantee... Click here to view Optygen Q&A

Details:

The all New & Improved Optygen formula is unlike any other endurance product available. Optygen is a legal, safe and stimulant-free formula designed specifically to optimize performance for endurance athletes. This revolutionary formula is based on human clinical trials and the latest scientific research on increasing endurance. This new and improved Optygen formula now contains Rhodiola that’s 40% stonger than the original formula.

The two main adaptogens in Optygen were first used by Tibetan Sherpas to help them climb Mount Everest. Optygen utilizes these unique adaptogens because clinical research (on elite endurance athletes) has shown them to increase oxygen utilization. This increases the body’s ability to adapt to high levels of physical stress, increase anaerobic threshold and reduce lactic acid.

  • Now with 40% Stronger Rhodiola
  • Increases Endurance and Performance
  • Modulates Cortisol Levels
  • Improves Oxygen Utilization
  • Reduce lactic acid


For best results, use Optygen during all intense training. Optygen 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 to race at a higher level. For best results, Optygen should be used consistently for many months. If you start taking Optygen a week before a race, benefits will be minimal.

Loading Phase: Take six (6) capsules every morning for (7) days.
Maintenance Phase: After loading phase, take three (3) capsules every morning.

How Optygen Works:
Optygen works on three different levels all working synergistically with the goal of increasing endurance. Endurance is defined your ability to perform work over a period of time where there is sufficient oxygen delivered to the muscles. There are three critical components necessary to increase your endurance capacity.

1) Efficient Glucose Metabolism
2) Efficient Oxygen Transfer
3) ATP production

Efficient Glucose Metabolism:
The first part of the Optygen formula utilizes chromium for its ability to break down fuel. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that aids in glucose metabolism, regulation of insulin levels, and maintenance of healthy blood levels of cholesterol and other lipids. Chromium forms part of a compound in the body known as glucose tolerance factor (GTF), which is involved in regulating the actions of insulin in maintaining blood sugar levels and, possibly, in helping to control appetite. It is critical that any drink, bar or pre-race meal consumed prior to a race or exercise gets broken down efficiently in order to maximize your fuel delivery. Insulin spikes or lack of insulin response can cause the nutrients to either be rushed into your bloodstream too quickly or not quickly enough. Chromium regulates this nutrient breakdown so you have equal and sustained nutrient delivery to the working muscles.

Efficient Oxygen Transfer:
The second part of the Optygen formula uses adaptogenic herbs to improve oxygen effeciency. Originally, these two adaptogenic herbs were gathered by Tibetan Sherpas for use in their tea. The Sherpas used these herbs to give them energy to climb Everest, which they did without the use of supplemental oxygen. One of the adaptogenic applications of Rhodiola that has received considerable research attention recently is for aiding in adaptation to high altitude, thus, as a preventive treatment for hypoxia or mountain sickness. In June 2002, Dr Rulin Xiu was awarded a patent for her work showing Rhodiola's ability to oxygenate blood. Clinical studies on Cordyceps have proven its ability to increase endurance through more efficient enzyme activity, mobilization of free fatty acids and beta-oxidation. In a 1998 study, Dr. Edmond Burke observed that Cordyceps has the ability to improve lactate energy metabolism within the cell. All these mechanisms clearly show how these two adaptogenic herbs improve the efficiency of oxygen transfer in the cell leading to improvements in oxygen uptake and VO2max.

ATP Production:
The final step of the Optygen formulation puts all the necessary components together to assure efficient Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) production. Clinical research has shown that endurance athletes diminish their ATP stores in exhaustive exercise, which can lead to a reduction in aerobic metabolism and endurance. Optygen 's proprietary ATPro matrix of five key nutrients is designed to assure ATP production. Since ATP is the final step in aerobic energy production, it is critical that the nutrients feeding the ATP cycle are readily available. Calcium pyruvate, sodium phosphate, potassium phosphate, adenosine and d-ribose all play critical roles in glycolysis and the citric acid cycle, leading to efficient ATP production. Endurance athlete's VO2max is directly proportional to their ability to efficiently produce ATP.

A synergistic formula:
The combination of the three components of Optygen create a synergy with the sole purpose of improving race performance through increased VO2max, reduced lactic acid and increased endurance. Though Cordyceps and Rhodiola taken by themselves would offer enhanced performance, the combination including Chromium Chelate and the ATPro matrix complete the formulation. It is this synergistic combination of key ingredients that make Optygen such a powerful and complete endurance formula.

Racing and intense training puts your body under incredible stress, depleting glycogen stores, elevating cortisol and draining essential vitamins and minerals. For endurance athletes, it's crucial to focus on recovery in order to be competitive the day after a hard workout or race. That's why the scientists at First Endurance developed Ultragen, the most advanced post-recovery formulation ever produced. Each serving of Ultragen delivers the levels of nutrients that have been shown in clinical research to maximize recovery and give you an extra edge over the competition. In other words, First Endurance does not use "pixie dust" levels of ingredients just to put on the label.  Click Here to View Ultragen Q&A

Recovered with no problems
Last year I did my first triathlon and used Optygen to help me with my training. I felt good, but had a bit of trouble taking all those pills during the "loading" phase. I didn't know how much the optygen was aiding my training or how much was a psychological edge. Whatever it was.. I want it back. I ran the Chicago Distance Classic a few weeks ago in the humidity and was not using any supplements -- I felt like crap. A few months prior, I had a PR at the MiniIndi half marathon and recovered with no problems thanks to the use of Optygen and Acid Zappers. I just got my new bottle of Optygen and am ready to start the "load" phase as I hit the heavy mileage for my Marine Corp Marathon at the end of October.

Increased my endurance
Ihave used this product for many years and I have great results on the field and in speeding my recovery after hard workouts. But, checkout the newer HP version of this. I mean .. wow!

Beta-Alanine, an amino acid that allows your body to produce significantly higher carnosine levels for metabolizing lactate, does its natural job of increasing muscular endurance, boosting strength, improving exercise capacity and delays muscular fatigue. Rhodiola Rosea and Cordyceps adaptogens, first used by Tibetan Sherpas to help them climb Mt. Everest, have been shown to increase VO2Max, lung function, oxygen utilization and anaerobic threshold significantly.

Friends raved about Optygen
I'm not a supplement guy, but friends raved about Optygen, so I decided to give it a shot. I used it exactly as directed, ramping up consumption as I ramped up and then tapered for my biggest race of the year. That race happened to be my first win as a competitive cyclist! Now I'm looking forward to trying Optygen HP.

Optygen gave me what I needed
This product has sincerely helped me with my performance on the bike. I was consistently lacking a little something in my riding, for those long hard (race like) group rides, always coming up short in the final sprint. Optygen gave me what I needed. I would continue to use this product, if it was not so costly. I just pick and choose when I use it. If it was not for stiff cost, I would use it consistently throughout the season. One more thing, I have used the Optygen HP as well and it was even more effective, but again cost was an even more difficult factor in my ability to use it regularly, so Optygen was my main product of use. I wish I could use it more. Enjoy the benefits. John F Waxhaw, NC
