Having energy is one of the key elements of being an athlete. Athletes are usually the ones who are most depleted of energy because of how much they exert. Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a simple, natural way to restore your body’s energy and feel great while doing whatever it is you love to do? There is, with NADH.
NADH is the abbreviation for the naturally occurring biological substance, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride. It’s biologically ranked coenzyme 1, and plays a vital role in energy production in the mitochondria, where it jumpstarts the production of ATP (cellular energy) in muscles. Therefore the more NADH a cell has, the more energy it can produce. While it has been known about for decades, only recently have scientists been able to put it in a stable form and thus able to be ingested as a pill. ENADA’s product is an energy booster, an immunity booster, and a powerful antioxidant. Because of its crucial role in energy production, it is the perfect supplement for athletes.
Athletes exert more energy than a sedentary person, and thus are often NADH depleted. Therefore a supplement of NADH will boost energy and improve all-around performance of physical activity. Research conducted by ENADA and colleagues on competitive athletes indicate that NADH enhances work capacity. Researchers measured reaction times, physical performance, and performance quality in seventeen competitive cyclists and long-distance runners. All subjects took 5 mg of NADH in the mornings on an empty stomach daily for four weeks. The level and amount of exercise each individual underwent remained the same as before they began taking the supplements, to ensure accuracy. After the four weeks, nearly all of the athletes experienced significantly less scattering of reaction times and increases in oxygen capacity. Overall 16 of the 17 subjects had improvements in their reaction times.
Here are some other ways that NADH is the perfect supplement for athletes:
- Increased energy
- Increased reaction time
- Greater mental acuity and alertness
- Improved oxygen capacity
- Immune system boost
Julia Kaplan, an avid cyclist ENADA user, shared her experience with NADH.
The first thing I noticed after getting introduced to NADH was an increase in energy and focus during my training rides. I then started to see improvements in performance. Some of this improvement was due to being able to train longer and recover faster in between hard workouts, or after races.
I used it to prepare for a national record attempt at altitude (6200 feet, I live at sea level) over ten years ago and discovered a benefit I did not expect. My previous experience of racing at altitude was that I would get back home and one or two days later be just hammered. I did not have that huge crash despite doing back to back attempts in a 24 hour period. I was fatigued, yes, nothing like previous years.
But no matter what type of athlete you are, or how strenuously you exert yourself, NADH can help you. All athletes can customize the amount of NADH they take daily by tailoring dosage levels to suit their overall health or training needs.
