It’s no secret that exercise has a multitude of benefits ranging from decreasing the risk of heart disease to managing blood sugar levels, weight control and improving mental health. Your immune health is no different. However, too much exercise can also suppress your immune system where white cell function is reduced due to an increase in the stress hormone adrenaline and cortisol. Research shows that after running a marathon, you are 2-4 times more at risk of developing upper respiratory tract infection (URTI). So, for all you fitness junkies who are working hard to smashing your fitness goals, take just the Tonic, a complete and natural immune solution to make sure you don’t miss a training day.
Zinc is the underdog of minerals because not only does it fuel your immune system to fight off infection but it also helps with protein synthesis. Zinc does this by speeding up chemical reactions needed to develop muscle, stabilise protein structures and regulate hormone levels. All three functions contribute to the process of muscle protein synthesis which kicks in whenever you undergo resistance training.
Vitamin C is a strong anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant which may mean it could help to reverse some of the oxidative damage that exercise can bring on. Oxidative damage is caused by free radicals, and it is antioxidants that help to keep these in check. So, by getting more antioxidants like vitamin C into your diet between workouts, you could be helping to shield your muscle cells from free radical damage, thereby decreasing recovery time between workouts and growing muscle.
Vitamin C is involved in amino acid metabolism, including the formation of collagen, which is the primary constituent of connective tissue. Connective tissue is what holds together your muscles and bones. So, you can begin to see how vitamin C could be invaluable to fitness junkies beyond what it does to support immunity.
We’re putting the spotlight on zinc again as research indicates that zinc can help to improve your aerobic capacity or VO2 max, which is a measure of the level of oxygen your body is able to supply to your muscles. So, if you’re wanting to improve your athletic performance you may want to make sure your zinc levels are adequate.
Tonic is absorbed immediately, unlike tablet vitamins that need to be broken down. Studies have shown that this means only around 25% of the nutrients can be absorbed, whereas up to 98% of liquid vitamins are absorbed. Now we're talking!
