the “Ups” & “Downs” of Exercise
Although we are told that exercise is good for
our bodies, what we are unaware of is that exercise pushes the
body beyond its usual capabilities (resulting in muscle damage).
With the right amount of recovery time and appropriate
nutrients, the body will efficiently repair and rebuild towards
an increased level of strength and endurance (this is known as
the adaptation syndrome). To continually improve our level of
fitness, these principles must be supported by the right amount
of nutrients and antioxidants. If these essential nutrients are
provided, this will boost exercise performance and reduce
exercise recovery time.
During exercise, our bodies will:
- Increase the rate and amount of oxygen
- UtilizedIncrease metabolism (burn more calories)
After a bout of exercise, our bodies will:
- Have an increased accumulation of toxins (free radicals)
and by-products (lactic acid)
- A reduced physical resistance due to increased exercise
Free Radicals & Lactic Acid -
Since exercise increases the
amount of oxygen used in the body, this causes an increased
production of unstable molecules called free radicals. These
highly reactive molecules can damage cells and are believed to
be the main cause of sore aching muscles a day or two after
exercise (known as delayed onset muscle soreness or DOMS).
Wastes/By Products -
Since exercise increases
metabolism, here is an increased production of waste and
by-products. Collectively, these wastes need to be quickly
eliminated and neutralized to reduce muscle soreness and improve
Reduced Physical Resistance -
Since we are “overloading” our
bodies with physical stress, it takes time to repair and
replenish the cells after exercise (this is known as exercise
How can Intra support an active lifestyle?
to maintain a “healthy” active lifestyle, it is important to
have the right amount of nutrients to:
- Support optimal energy
- Help reduce the effects of exercise stress
- Provide antioxidants (to combat free radicals and toxins
produced during exercise)
Intra for energy!
Intra contains ingredients that fully support
the Energy System. Without these essential nutrients, the body
could not reach optimal levels of activity. German Chamomile,
Ginger root, Bee Pollen, Chinese Pearl Barley are some of the
ingredients in Intra that promote energy.
Intra for physical stress!
- Normalize and raise
an individual's resistance to all forms of stresses in the body
(including the physical stress associated with exercise).
Intra contains the following adaptogens:
- A Classical Adaptogenic Herb
- Siberian ginseng has been extensively researched by the
Russians and at one time it was popular among workers and
athletes in that country to improve performance, endurance, as
well as preventing sickness in the workplace.
- Siberian ginseng has been scientifically shown to increase
energy, stamina, and help the body resist viral infections and
- In the Orient, Reishi is considered a Fu Zhen herb (immune
modulation). Reishi has various applications including acting as
an adaptogen in helping the body fight the effects of all forms
Intra for antioxidants!Antioxidant
supplements have been shown to be effective in reducing delayed
onset muscle soreness and improving exercise recovery. Juniper
Berry, Licorice, Rose Hip, Schisandra berry, and Passion flower
contain antioxidants such as Vitamin C and flavonoids that
destroy free radicals and toxins caused by exercise.
