Collection: Performance

Optimizing athletic performance is essential for athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike, as it allows for the achievement of personal goals, improved overall physical health, and enhanced mental well-being[1]. Enhancing athletic performance involves a combination of factors, including proper training, nutrition, and recovery strategies. These elements work together to increase endurance, strength, speed, and agility, contributing to success in various sports and physical activities.

Vitamin B12, Sermorelin, and NAD+ are three compounds that have been shown to aid in athletic performance and support overall health. Vitamin B12 is vital for energy production, red blood cell formation, and nerve cell maintenance, all of which are important for optimal athletic performance[2]. B12 deficiency can lead to fatigue and reduced exercise capacity, making supplementation beneficial for athletes[3]. Sermorelin, a synthetic version of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, which can lead to improved body composition, increased muscle mass, and faster recovery[4]. NAD+, a coenzyme involved in various biological processes, plays a critical role in energy metabolism, DNA repair, and the regulation of circadian rhythms[5]. Maintaining optimal NAD+ levels can support cellular energy production, which is essential for peak athletic performance and recovery[6].
