Exercise is a double edged sword; it is the core of a healthy lifestyle, but the very action of exercise increases oxidative stress which in some cases can actually accelerate ageing. Antioxidants play a vital role in limiting the damage associated with intense exercise and the increased levels of free radicals and oxidative stress that accompany it.
A typical outdoor athlete is exposed to both physical oxidative stress as well as environmental oxidative stress. Physical activity will generate reactive oxygen species (ROS); the more intense the activity the greater number of free radicals. ROS are shown to have damaging effects on muscle performance and recovery. Whereas environmental oxidative stress like unprotected exposure to ultraviolet radiation can damage your skin and eyes.
Reflex Nutrition has long understood the proven benefits of antioxidants on exercise performance and recovery. Reflex Sports Antioxidants is something new; it’s a state of the art product that is designed by our Research & Development team for all athletes that can be taken year round. It contains a broad spectrum of unique patented antioxidants.
The human liver is considered by many to be the most crucial organ. It is responsible for cleansing blood, protein synthesis, biochemical production, glycogen storage and it even plays a major role in metabolism.
A very minor reduction in function can result in less than optimal performance. A wide range of products out there can impair liver function, some rather dramatically. Alcohol, pharmaceutical or recreational drugs, aflatoxins and even common over-the-counter drugs such as acetaminophen in higher doses can tax the liver.

Beetroot: Health Benefits
LOWER YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Drinking beet juice may help to lower blood pressure in a matter of hours. One study found that drinking one glass of beet juice lowered systolic blood pressure by an average of 4-5 points.3
The benefit likely comes from the naturally occurring nitrates in beets, which are converted into nitric oxide in your body. Nitric oxide, in turn, helps to relax and dilate your blood vessels, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure.
BOOST YOUR STAMINA
If you need a boost to make it through your next workout, beet juice may again prove valuable. Those who drank beet juice prior to exercise were able to exercise for up to 16 percent longer.4 The benefit is thought to also be related to nitrates turning into nitric oxide, which may reduce the oxygen cost of low-intensity exercise as well as enhance tolerance to high-intensity exercise.
Beets are a unique source of betaine, a nutrient that helps protects cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress. It's also known to help fight inflammation, protect internal organs, improve vascular risk factors, enhance performance, and likely help prevent numerous chronic diseases.
The powerful phytonutrients that give beets their deep crimson color may help to ward off cancer. Research has shown that beetroot extract reduced multi-organ tumor formations in various animal models when administered in drinking water, for instance, while beetroot extract is also being studied for use in treating human pancreatic, breast, and prostate cancers.
RICH IN VALUABLE NUTRIENTS AND FIBER
Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.
The betalin pigments in beets support your body's Phase 2 detoxification process, which is when broken down toxins are bound to other molecules so they can be excreted from your body. Traditionally, beets are valued for their support in detoxification and helping to purify your blood and your liver.
