Are there published clinical studies for AltRed?
We have conducted three gold-standard clinical studies that prove positive effects for endurance athletes taking AltRed. Gold standard studies are double-blind, crossover, placebo-controlled, and randomized. Additional studies are in the works and will be added as they are published.
Highlights from studies:
- 3.5% more watts
- 3% faster times
- 15% reduction in perceived exertion
- 2.5% more distance
- 5.4% increased exercise efficiency
- 9% reduction in exercise-induced muscle damage
- 14% less lactate acid production
Betalain-Rich Concentrate Supplementation Improves Exercise Performance and Recovery in Competitive Triathletes
Another study at University of California, Davis conducted on triathletes showed that they performed an average of 3% faster in a 5K recovery time trial performed 24 hours after completing a 10K time trial when they used AltRed. The triathletes also experienced an average 9% reduction in a key muscle damage indicator known as creatine kinase. Read full study
Effect of 1-Week Betalain-Rich Beetroot Concentrate Supplementation on Cycling Performance and Select Physiological Parameters
Researchers at Auburn University conducted a study on cyclists that showed they produced an average watt increase of 3.5% during a 30-minute functional threshold power test when they used AltRed. Cyclists also increased cycling efficiency by an average of 5.4%. Read full study
Betalain-Rich Concentrate Supplementation Improves Exercise Performance in Competitive Runners
Researchers at University of California, Davis conducted a study on distance runners and showed that the runners performed an average of 3% faster in a 5K time trial when they used AltRed. The runners also saw an average 14% reduction in lactate acid levels and 15% reduction in perceived exertion. Read full study
