The natural composition has been designed to target heavier performance using polyphenol strength to improve peak power and total anaerobic work capacity.
A randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover study, was conducted in the Research Center of High Performance Sport of the University of Murcia (Spain) to evaluate whether PerfLoad could improve physical performance during high-intensity exercise, in anaerobic condition, while sustaining physiological and biochemical processes of 15 recreationally-active sportsmen.
The Wingate test was used to assess maximum anaerobic power during a high intensity exercise on a cycle ergometer.
Supplementation with PerfLoad was correlated with a significant increase in the total anaerobic work capacity by 5%, which represents an increase of 876 joules developed in 30 seconds. 900 mg of PerfLoad, taken pre-workout, was shown to provide explosive power from the very start of the exercise and the maximal peak power output was significantly increased by 3.7% without inducing higher fatigue or higher heart rate at V02max. Blood markers showed that oxidative homeostasis was stabilized in supplemented subjects.
As pre-workout supplementation has become a significant nutritional approach in recent years, such results demonstrated that the water-soluble ingredient PerfLoad can be a natural and efficient solution helping athletes to improve their physical performance while balancing their metabolism and reducing exercise-induced oxidative stress, the company said.
