A barrier of immune defenses
Vitamin and mineral supplementation helps to create a protective barrier on the body, fighting against external ailments. Indeed, its high level of antioxidants makes it possible to reduce the risk of the occurrence of numerous pathologies.
When the incidence of infections and health problems increases after exercise, it is a sign of a weakened cellular defense system. After intense training, the production of cells, such as lymphocytes, increases very quickly and then decreases, or even disappears after exercise: the rate of destruction of lymphocytes (immune cells) accelerates by 76% (1).
Selenium helps increase the immune system (2-3) and thus better fight infections. Zinc for its part helps fight against the decline in immune defenses and reduce the intensity and duration of certain symptoms linked to infections and viruses (4-5).
Delay skin aging
In too large a quantity, free radicals attack the cells of our organism causing the deterioration of the skin. Antioxidants in vitamins help limit or even prevent damage. By fighting against free radicals, the vitamins in Men’s Immune Health help to delay skin aging.
In addition, medical statistics indicate that in the long term, regular intake of vitamins significantly increases the longevity of users and the incidence of disease (6-7-8-9).
Helps improve energy metabolism
By participating in the improvement of energy metabolism, the mix helps stimulate ATP, also called Adenosine Tri-Phosphate, the energy molecule, the body's sole fuel and muscle contraction. It is its production that subsequently allows the muscle to contract, and therefore the athlete's movement in his environment.
The formula thus makes it possible to increase the sportsman's energy reserves, and to help him during intense performances. According to a study, vitamins E and also have an important effect on the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, and regulates the level of glucose present in the blood by promoting the production of insulin (10).
The benefits of Vitamin K2-MK7
Vitamins K are liposoluble vitamins (diluting in fat) which contain many benefits on the body. K2 MK-7 has better bioavailability (it is absorbed much better than others) and benefits from a longer half-life (it stays in the body longer).
Vitamin K2 acts as a distributor of calcium deposits. Instead of being deposited in the arteries, thanks to vitamin K2, calcium will strengthen the bones.
Vitamin K2 helps fight against inflammatory phenomena, joint pain, calcification of vessels, reduced bone strength or cerebral degeneration (11-12-13-14).
During a sports performance, the recovery phase between two workouts is crucial for long-term progress. Some research has shown that the intake of antioxidant vitamins like vitamins A and E after intense physical exertion is very important for muscle recovery (15).
Beneficial effects on fatigue
In addition to improving physical recovery, vitamins A and E help fight against age-related fatigue. Vitamins B1 and B6 are particularly useful in the fight against moral fatigue.
