As a runner, you have unique nutritional requirements more complex than those of non-runners. Give your body the complete nutrients it needs to run at its optimal level, all the time - give your body RPM.
Created specifically for runners, RPM contains essential ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, our proprietary adaptogenic blend (Cordyceps sinesis mycelia extract, Ciwuja root extract, Rhodiola rosea root extract and Panax ginseng root extract) , Glucosamine, and Celadrin. This powerful combination drastically improves and maintains your body's energy, endurance, and health while you run, after you run, and all day, every day.
ENERGY: Achieve sustained energy the natural way. RPM prolongs energy, increases oxygen utilization, and improves aerobic capacity (VO2 Max).
ENDURANCE: Run longer without hitting the wall. RPM provides endurance while you train and compete by reducing lactic acid and fatigue and enhancing your body's ability to adapt to increased levels of physical stress.
HEALTH: Perform your best by improving your overall wellness. RPM enhances immune functions, speeds workout recovery, and keeps your joints healthy and active.
ENERGY IN MOTION - The body is an amazing and complex machine. However, like all machines, it requires energy in order to function. The production of Energy in the human body can be summed up by Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This is the fuel our bodily systems run on. The process known as the "Krebs cycle," works like this:
1. Carbohydrates are broken down into sugars which then produce ATP.
2. ATP is then broken down into Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP), and in the process releases energy.
3. ADP is then recycled into ATP and the cycle starts over again.
Anything that aids in the Krebs cycle will increase ATP production and thereby add to the energy available for the body's use. What does this mean to you? When you maximize production and usage of ATP, there will be more energy available for you to run and train, increasing your ability to perform at higher levels, and enhance general health.
BENEFITS - RPM contains critical trace minerals that act as catalysts (help in biochemical processes) required for all functions of the body. Trace minerals are a very important component of the body's energy processes that are often over looked; they provide that "octane boost" your body craves to run at max potential. Because the modern diet does not include enough whole fruits and vegetables containing these critical components, your body will feel the difference with RPM and your training will be better than ever.
RPM also contains standardized extract of Panax ginseng and Rhodiola rosea. These beneficial plants have been prized for centuries for their adaptogenic properties. Adaptogens help the body to "adapt" or deal with fatigue and stress. Clinical studies have shown that Panax ginseng may help regulate the normal glucose process and thereby improve performance after physical and mental fatigue. Panax ginseng has also been shown to improve muscular strength, maximum oxygen uptake, work capacity, heart rate, alertness and reaction times. Not to be outdone, Rhodiola rosea imparts many of the same properties as Panax ginseng with additional benefits of helping in the synthesis or resynthesis of ATP. Both of these plants support the body's response to repeated or long term stress as well as acutely stressful situation requiring rapid responses. With RPM your body with naturally produce energy and thrive during the stresses you put it through with your active lifestyle.
MAINTAIN - The ability to sustain or exert oneself over prolonged periods of time is endurance. The length of time sustained depends on the individual. Training and nutrition promote greater endurance during all activities. Many factors affect endurance such as energy capacity, oxygen uptake and usage, muscle strength and performance and so on.
BENEFITS - RPM contains the best ingredients for promoting endurance through increased VO2 max, higher energy levels, greater elimination of lactic acid and scientifically proven ingredients to support healthy joint function. It is all about "in with the good and out with the bad". Your body has the most amazing processes to uptake and create the components it needs for endurance. Help those processes with RPM. Increase your ability to take in vital oxygen and circulate it throughout your body. Create longer sustainable energy from the body's storage supplies. By delivering oxygen and energy to the skeletal muscles and maintaining this supply chain continuously during training and events, your endurance will increase.
Adaptogens are not only be a huge benefit to shorter term energy supply, they also help with the affects of long term or repeated stress. Studies indicate that Rhodiola rosea and Ciwuja affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis so that the body reacts and copes with long term stresses. RPM taken every day can help keep your body healthy and in peak performance during long term training and competing.
Cordyceps sinensis has been prized for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine to alleviate fatigue and improving physical endurance. It has been demonstrated that this therapeutic affect is probably due to Cordyceps ability to modulate stress hormones such as cortisol and other biochemical stress compounds. RPM combines this unique blend of adaptogenic herbal extracts in amounts demonstrated in studies to help the body deal with long term stress. What does this mean for you? The training schedule you put your body through to run your next race or marathon takes its toll on your body. This is viewed by your body as stress. Adapting to this stress and overcoming its negative affects keeps you immune system strong, your energy levels high, your muscles and cardiovascular system in top shape and your mind alert. All these factors combine to make you a winner. Experience the difference for yourself.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH - The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity" At Runners Pulse we support this idea and encourage people to develop all aspects of health. We just think that running will help every aspect of your life and want you to "run for your life and better health".
FITNESS - Physical fitness is the result of regular exercise, proper diet and nutrition, and proper rest for physical recovery. There are four general determinants of health including human biology, environment, lifestyle, and healthcare services. Thus, health is maintained and improved not only through the advancement and application of health science, but also through the efforts and intelligent lifestyle choices of the individual. Take control of your health by managing the factors that are within your control.
NUTRITION - Sports nutrition focuses on how food and dietary supplements affect athletic performance (during events), improvement (from training), and recovery (after events and training). Some goals of sports nutrition to maintain glycogen levels and prevent glycogen depletion and to optimize energy levels and muscle tone. Your strategy for winning an event may include a schedule for the entire season of what to eat, when to eat it, and in what precise quantities (before, during, after, and between workouts and events).
BENEFITS - If there is one thing we at Runners Pulse can stress, it is that as a runner, you must take care of your body every day. Proper nutrition and excursive are required daily to complete and compete the way you want. You would never consider trying to win a marathon having spent the last several months sitting in front of the TV with a bag of chips. Your nutritional regimen must be as rigorous as your running/cross-training schedule. Runners Pulse Maintenance is called "maintenance" for a reason. You need daily nutritional maintenance.
Most studies show that runner's nutrient needs are unique. But they also indicate that generally, runners do not require mega doses of vitamins and minerals. The general consensus among nutrition experts is that it is critical for runners to make sure they are getting vitamins and minerals, but it is not generally recommended that runners take doses in excess of 100% of the RDA for healthy adults. RPM provides want you need with 100% of the RDA for all essential vitamins and minerals. RPM also synergistically blends these essential vitamins, minerals, trace minerals with adaptogenic herbs to support a healthy cardiovascular system (heart and lungs), immune system, muscles and joints.
As a runner your joints take a BEATING, literally. Every mile you runs pounds your knees, ankles and back. No other product is designed to meet all the needs of runners. We took overall nutritional support and adaptogenic properties and combined them with joint health. There are many studies showing the benefit of Celadrin and glucosamine. But even better, there are many studies showing the combination of these two ingredients to support healthy joints.
