A silver lining in the current pandemic is that people have become more health conscious and are embarking on their personal fitness journeys. In Singapore, there have been lots of mainstream media reports of people taking up exercising to the extent that a half day cycling and even a multi-day running around the island seem to be the new badge of honour. This trend is supported by the growing number of virtual races that offer full marathon distance and century ride categories. These mean that people spend a long time - a minimum of 3 hours or more - out there on a single exercise outing.
Let us get back to reality, though. Most of these endurance activities are being enjoyed by weekend warriors. They have to juggle between having day jobs, feeding the family and socialising with friends. They get into the sports and fitness not to outperform others, but to be better versions of themselves.
What is important for this group of endurance sports enthusiasts is to have quality training and an even better recovery regime. It is recommended that they consume clinically proven nutrition supplements to complement their active lifestyle.
Kordel’s AstaReal® Natural Astaxanthin 12mg
Kordel’s Natural Astaxanthin contains an all-natural AstaReal® astaxanthin derived from algae for the maintenance of good health, including:
- Improving Muscle Endurance With AstaReal ®
- Boosting muscle endurance and recovery.
- Lowering lactic acid and fatigue.
- Reducing muscle damage and inflammation.
- Improving blood flow and the quality of red blood cells.
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that supports cardiovascular, brain, immune health, eye, skin health and muscle recovery. Natural astaxanthin from the microalgae, Haematococcus pluvialis, is a natural carotenoid that can be found from arctic marine environments, to common freshwater rock pools throughout the world. Astaxanthin is what gives the pink and red color to salmon, shrimp and lobster. In the natural environment, animals depend on their diet to obtain astaxanthin and other carotenoids since they cannot produce carotenoids themselves.
The astaxanthin deposits in mitochondria-rich muscle tissue where it promotes endurance by protecting energy-producing mitochondria against free radical damage during exercise. After exercise, it's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties promote muscle recovery.
In short, if you do your endurance sports on weekends, you would want your body to quickly recover so that you start fresh first thing on a Monday morning. Kordel’s AstaReal® Natural Astaxanthin 12mg is your post-exercise essential supplement.
Kordel's Magnesium Bisglycinate 200mg
Magnesium is essential for the normal functioning of cells, nerves, muscles, bones, and the heart. It prevents muscle spasms, fatigue and headaches. When your body lacks magnesium during exercise, your muscles would not be able to relax, possibly causing cramps and creating a buildup of lactic acid. It will then lead up to post-workout muscle tightness.
Kordel's Magnesium Bisglycinate 200mg is suitable for vegetarians. It possesses a molecular structure of one magnesium bonded with two glycine molecules, making it superior and better absorbed by the body compared to other forms of magnesium. It is also gentle on the stomach, reducing the likelihood of stomach aches and tightness.
Consume Kordel's AstaReal® Astaxanthin and Magnesium Bisglycinate on a daily basis, and you would be able to enjoy spending hours on your favourite sports sans muscle fatigue, get quality sleep and start the next day fresh again! These products are a great festive gift, especially for endurance sport athletes.
