Mushrooms and Peak Athletic Performance
Move over, protein powder, creatine, and branch chain amino acids, there is a new supplement gaining popularity among performance focused athletes.
Elite and recreational athletes alike have begun turning to functional mushrooms, cordyceps in particular as they strive to improve their performance with organic, natural, plant based supplements.
A recent clinical study by the University of North Carolina and published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements concluded that supplementing Cordyceps for at least three weeks improved a number of key athletic performance indicators:
- VO2 Max - significantly increases the maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilize during intense exercise
- Relative Peak Power - this implies strong applications for anaerobic performance
- Time to Exhaustion - this implies strong applications for anaerobic performance
What does this mean? Athletes supplementing with cordyceps for three weeks can push themselves harder level for longer. Even small improvements in this aspect of performance can have meaningful outcomes for long term performance results.
Cordyceps is a key ingredient in Hekate's first product, Star Power, which is specifically designed and formulated for people looking to enhance their performance in sport, work and daily life using all natural, plant based supplements.
