Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. R. Timothy Deakon FRSC is an Ironman that keeps detailed data on his performance. He has not had an increase in performance for the last 2 years while maintaining a similar training program.
Dr. Deakon communicated to SuperHuman Strength that he realized a 5% increase in power performance over an eight week program on his 4 hour endurance cycling training while maintaining the same heart rate in the same course/same conditions while using RESTORE to supplement hydration and electrolytes as well as using RESTORE for recovery solutions. He also noticed similar, albeit less dramatic (about 3%), improvements in running performance as gauged by speed and heart rate while doing Yasso's (800m repeats).
RESTORE contains D-ribose plus BCAA which gives greater mitochondrial function and the electrolytes keep acidity at bay. When muscles get acidic, they start to fail. Bicarbonate forms of electrolytes keep the ph balance in check and ribose plus BCAA are well researched ingredients in mitochondrial function (that's the ability of cells to produce energy) which is allowing him to push further because his heart is not working harder. His muscles are experiencing greater energy efficiency. NAC also has been researched to show a positive effect on respiratory efficiency.
In short, RESTORE's combination of ingredients are making his muscles work more efficiently, which is making his heart not work as hard, which is making it possible for him to push his performance. It's kind of like adding a turbo charger to an engine. The car has greater horsepower without burning up more fuel because the engine is operating more efficiently.
