Extreme Endurance at the Devil Mountain 50k. Bufferin Acid and Mountain Blastin!
Recently Extreme Endurance athlete Andy Nelson traveled to Pagosa Springs, Colorado to compete in the Devil Mountain 50k.
The Devil Mountain 50k is one of the most senic 50ks in the United States. This course is very beautiful but it’s also very tough.
In his preparation for the event. Andy had been using Extreme Endurance everyday for the past 4 months. He was taking 3 tablets am and 3 tablets pm. This was his first crack at an ultra distance event.
As you can see from the elevation profile he had to deal with a lot of climbing. (5000 feet) As a result he produced a lot of Lactic Acid.
Just finishing this race is an Epic achievement. Andy came in 6th! Finishing in a time of 5:06:59. He was surprised by how good he felt after so much climbing and punishment out on the course.
We were not surprised. We know that Extreme Endurance is clinically proven to raise your aerobic threshold by double digits and buffer the burn of lactic acid by 15%.
Here are a few of the highlights from the event.
- Spectacular course run through rarely visited forests.
- Breathtaking views.
- Elevation gains 5,000’ feet during the 50k..
- A course comprised of more than 80% single track.
Extreme Endurance (xendurance as known in the EU) is the only product in the world that has a Gold-Standard, third party, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study – that has been published. We emphasize third party because it means that we, at Lifespan International, did not know who was testing the product. Many companies pay other companies to “hopefully” get good results – we hired a company to test Extreme Endurance that had no knowledge of Lifespan International or the product – and the results were off the charts with a 15% reduction in lactic acid and a double digit increase in aerobic threshold.
Jürgen Sessner, the lead researcher on the study and owner of Corpus Diagnostik, in Hilpotstein, Germany, was so impressed with the results of the 10-day study that he asked if he could do his own study using the active product on 5 of his pro-triathletes for a longer, 30-day study. He found in this second study that with a longer use of Extreme Endurance, there was continued improvement and an increase in VO2 Max and power output. All of his athletes wanted to stay on the product.
Second, the clinical results of our double-blind study were presented at the 6th Annual European Nutraceutical Convention in Vienna, Austria, March 13, 2010 and are published in the Clinical Journal of the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism, (Vol 5, Supplement 1, 2010)
