Ingredients: Every ingredient in Vega Sport Performance Optimizer beverage mix is purpose-driven and complementary, each playing an important individual role in enhancing a specific aspect of performance. Yet, when combined, the ingredients work synergistically to boost performance more significantly than the sum of the individual parts. Coconut Oil Prized for its rich, natural source of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), coconut oil is a raw healthy fat, which does not require digestion prior to its energy-boosting effect. Coconut oil goes straight to the liver to provide near-instant fuel and helps the body access and burn body fat as fuel to improve body composition. Kombucha A popular health elixir in Asia, kombucha is a fermented tea, rich in organic acids, active enzymes, amino acids,and antioxidants. It acts as a natural muscle relaxant, helping muscles move with greater fluidity and ease, resulting in less energy expenditure and ultimately enhanced endurance. Kombucha culture is also a liver detoxifier which helps speed up recovery following a workout. Yerba Mate Yerba mate is rich in antioxidants, chlorophyll and trace minerals. It aids in digestion and boosts mental and physical performance through mild stimulation of the adrenal glands. Increased mental focus is a significant benefit to the athlete as it improves the ability to get into the zone and perform without distraction. Unlike coffee, yerba mate will not cause jitters nor dehydration. Green Tea Rich in cell-protecting polyphenols, green tea is packed with powerful antioxidants which improve immune system function. Green tea also provides a natural source of caffeine which lightly stimulates the adrenal glands, heightens mental focus and readies the body for peak performance. Green tea has also been shown to assist fat metabolization which can reduce body fat over time. Rhodiola Extract (3% rosavin) Rhodiola is proven to improve mood, physical and mental performance. It helps dilate blood vessels, thereby increasing blood flow capacity throughout the body and reducing energy requirements placed on the cardiovascular system. Taking rhodiola before a workout can also enhance recovery by normalizing heart rate and improving protein synthesis post-workout. Panax Ginseng Extract (4% ginsenosides) A powerful adaptogen, ginseng strengthens the immune system and helps reduce stress and cortisol levels. Taking ginseng pre-workout will allow the body to be physically pushed further while delaying the onset of muscle fatigue. It also boosts energy and improves adrenal function without stimulation to reduce recovery time. Devil’s Claw Extract (6:1) Devil’s claw helps prevent inflammation and promotes joint vitality and fluid muscle contractions. A proven and safe alternative to synthetic analgesics, devils claw has also been shown to temporarily reduce the effectiveness of pain receptors, thereby allowing the athlete to push harder during physical activity to achieve a higher level of performance. Turmeric Extract (95% curcuminoids) Turmeric increases circulation, enhancing delivery of blood and oxygen to working muscles. It is also effective at reducing inflammation to enhance recovery post-workout. Ginger Extract (5% gingerols) Ginger reduces inflammation, improves digestion, and has blood thinning properties. Since one marker of improved fitness is an increase in red blood cells, (which causes the blood to become thicker), ginger can also help promote ideal blood viscosity. Sodium & Potassium Citrate Sodium and potassium are electrolytes which play a vital role in optimal hydration. Since sweat is comprised of water and electrolytes, water alone will not fully maintain or restore fluid levels lost through sweating. The correct balance of electrolytes and fluid will enhance muscle function, heart efficacy, and mental sharpness and help prevent muscle cramps. Organic Sprouted Whole Grain Brown Rice Syrup Sprouted whole grain brown rice syrup undergoes a proprietary germination process which converts the starch component in rice to an easily-assimilated form of fuel that enters the bloodstream quickly while requiring significantly less digestive energy. With a high glycemic index (80), sprouted whole grain brown rice syrup provides immediate fuel to the brain and working muscles. Organic Palm Nectar Organic palm nectar comes from the blossoms of the tropical coconut palm. It provides a clean-burning fuel that is easily absorbed and utilized by the muscles and is a prime energy source for optimal brain function. Entering the bloodstream at a slow and steady rate, it provides sustaining energy. Palm nectar solids have a very low glycemic index (35) and will not cause an insulin spike or crash.
