Immulina™ (Arthrospira platensis extract)
This is an ingredient that has NEVER BEFORE been used in the sports nutrition industry. It is an Ambrosia Nutraceuticals exclusive ingredient. Immulina is a highly specialized extract sourced from Spirulina, a type of blue-green algae. This patented ingredient has been studied and proven to be beneficial in 2 human studies:
1) University of Mississippi Published study with healthy adults to IMPROVE and ENHANCE NK cell (Natural Killer) activity. These CRUCIAL cells which are the mercenaries of our immune system (tasked to kill harmful pathogens in our bodies) are often suppressed for a substantial time period after each intense training session.
2) University of Copenhagen (Denmark) study with healthy adults to improve overall immune system response. The effects of Immulina™ were shown to get stronger in subjects as they increased in age, meaning that while Immulina™ can help everyone, it is CRUCIAL for those training intensely in their 30's, 40's, and beyond.
- Including Immulina™ in our formula means that OS will let you push your body to the ABSOLUTE limits of your physical and mental capabilities, while helping you to avoid the pitfalls of "Over Training" which include decreased recovery capacity, increased chance of injury, immune system suppression, poor sleep quality, and more.
AstraGin™ (Astragalus membranaceus and Panax notoginseng)
- This patented ingredient is derived from highly purified Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membrenaceus using a pharmaceutical grade extraction and processing technology. It has been proven in a dozen studies to aid in the absorption and uptake of crucial ingredients. AstraGin™ is crucial in the OS formula to maximize the absorption of the RFP's and Immulina™ Taking your OS as directed post training will also allow the user to leverage the Astragin™ to better absorb and uptake the nutrients from their post training meal or shake.
