Extreme Endurance reviewed in Lava Magazine
Two products that deliver what they promise
There are a lot of supplements out there. Ones to improve concentration, lower cholesterol, enhance libido—I’m surprised there isn’t one out there to make doing your taxes easier.
That said, I’ve been trying out a few supplements lately due to a pretty heavy increase in training volume and intensity, and so I’d like to highlight a few that I’ve really been impressed with. I’m not a nutritionist, herbalist, physician, or even a foodie, but when something I ingest really makes a difference in my health and performance, I’ll tell everyone I know about it.
Extreme Endurance: $39.95 for a bottle of 180 tablets
The benefits of magnesium are well documented: it aids digestion, improves sleep quality, decreases lactic-acid build up and improves recovery. Extreme Endurance offers a healthy dosage of magnesium, along with a slew of enzymes, electrolytes, and antioxidants that the company claims reduces lactic acid buildup by as much as 15 percent. This translates to less muscle soreness, improved recovery, and therefore a better performance come race day.
I started taking Extreme Endurance back in September while I was training for a fall century ride. What I immediately noticed was the fact that I was falling asleep within minutes of putting my head to my pillow. On the first of several 80-plus mile rides, I typically started to feel the burn around mile 60, but after a month of taking six tablets a day, my fatigue level was dramatically reduced.
As per the product instructions, I increased my dosage in the week leading up to a race, and during my rest month in December I decreased down to only three tablets a day. After a November race that involved international travel, I felt more rested and recovered after competition than ever before. I’ve since gone through about three bottles of this product, and I don’t plan on giving it up anytime soon.
