Vitality® New Zealand Muscle Performance
Vitality® New Zealand Muscle Performance has been developed for specific enhance blood flow to reduce muscle inflammation especially after intensive exercise. ‘Muscle Performance’ supports fast recovery post workout, relieves pain and inflammation of muscles by reducing oxidative stress. Continued research has proven that anthocyanins enhance muscle performance. It is based on a formulation of the highest grade of extract from the New Zealand blackcurrant. New Zealand blackcurrants are the most nutrient dense, anthocyanin rich blackcurrant berry in the world and the blackcurrant berry has the highest concentration of natural anthocyanin antioxidant of all sources. Here at Vitality® New Zealand we have developed a process to encapsulate a refined powder extract of the Blackcurrant berries with the highest concentration of the antioxidant “anthocyanin” yet available to the market at 400mg NZ Blackcurrant Extract Currantex 35, plus 74mg Vitamin C (supports free radical muscle damage and recovery) and 15mcg Vitamin D (supports functional performance of skeletal muscle).
The high level of both anthocyanin and polyphenolics reduces the inflammation and enhances recovery of the muscle. By maintaining limb blood flow post exercise aids rapid recovery over the following two hours (full research article click here). The health benefits of anthocyanins are outstanding but the benefits aren’t confined to anthocyanin as the Blackcurrant berry fruit has very high Vitamin C content (several times the recommended daily dietary reference intake of 90 mg1), good levels of potassium, phosphorus, iron, manganese and Vitamin B5, and a broad range of other essential nutrients.
Recommended daily dose: one or two 477 mg capsules and a further capsule 30 to 60 minutes after completing exercise.
