Eleuthero [Eleutherococcus senticosus] (Siberian Ginseng) is an adaptogen with a rich history. Traditionally practitioners use the plant’s root for its, healing, balancing and energizing properties.
Eleuthero Root will help reduce fatigue, build stamina, and stimulate the immune system against stress. Furthermore, it helps the body to resist infection during prolonged times of mental and physical stress, including athletes wanting to increase energy levels, performance, endurance and its stamina-building advantages.
In addition, Eleuthero has been shown to enhance mental acuity and physical endurance without the letdown that comes with caffeinated products. Research has shown that eleuthero improves the use of oxygen by the exercising muscle. This means that a person can maintain aerobic exercise longer and recover from workouts more quickly.
Beta-alanine is a naturally occurring amino acid that supports the synthesis of muscle carnosine in the body, which acts as a buffer against lactic acid and delays the onset of muscle fatigue and failure. For instance, elevated levels of muscle carnosine can extend endurance, speed recovery, build muscle strength, sharpen mental focus and enhance peak performance. In fact, CarnoSyn® beta-alanine has been shown by more than 55 scientific studies to increase muscle carnosine, and improve performance.
