The health and performance supplement for every day—not just race day!
BY STEVE BORN
Whether you're a full-time competitive athlete, a recreational athlete who participates in athletic events, or someone whose primary goal is to stay fit and enjoy optimal health, Race Caps Supreme is the product you need! For 30+ years, Race Caps Supreme has supplied benefits such as these:
- Higher energy levels during workouts and all day long, without the unpleasant stimulant side effects that come from the ingredients in many other supplements
- Noticeable increase in endurance
- Less muscle soreness and enhanced recovery after training sessions
- Antioxidant support for optimal immune system function
- Key nutrients that help optimize cardiovascular system health and protect against many types of degenerative diseases
No other athletic-specific supplement available delivers the range of benefits that Race Caps Supreme can; it continues to be the athlete's supplement of choice, withstanding the test of time in a market flooded with other products that overpromise but under-deliver. The nutrient blend in Race Caps Supreme aids in both athletic performance enhancement AND overall health - a one-two punch formulated for hard-training athletes, but also highly beneficial for everyone, especially those age 30 and older.
On a personal note, my parents have been taking Race Caps Supreme for years. While neither of them do any kind of competitive racing, they're still quite active so they certainly appreciate the athletic performance benefits. However, it's the general health benefits they obtain from this product that they appreciate the most - and which are most important to me. I want them around for a long time, and I honestly believe that Race Caps Supreme is a vital component to their diet and exercise program.
Coenzyme Q10 and Idebenone The cornerstones of Race Caps Supreme's effectiveness
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) - Known also as ubiquinone (from the word "ubiquitous," meaning it exists just about everywhere), CoQ10 is a vitally important substrate (think "spark plug") for the efficient production of energy from your food and oxygen intake. CoQ10 affects function of your mitochondria, the energy-producing "furnaces" in your cells. Exercise rapidly depletes CoQ10, so when you take Race Caps Supreme, it's like putting fresh spark plugs into your body, ensuring clean, efficient energy production. This translates into higher energy levels, increased endurance, and improved recovery.
CoQ10's importance goes far beyond athletic performance enhancement. One nutrition expert bluntly states, "Without CoQ10 or a good substitute, human life quickly ends." Thus, CoQ10's role in maintaining clean, efficient energy production is clearly crucial for optimal health, especially with regard to cardiovascular and brain health and a strong immune system. As to CoQ10 and cardiovascular health, one well-known cardiologist is quoted as saying, "I have long considered CoQ10 a wonder nutrient because of its ability to support heart health."
Additional benefits attributed to CoQ10 include:
- Helping to lower blood pressure
- Promoting healthy teeth and gums
- Supporting healthy skin by providing protection against UV radiation
- Improving blood circulation
- Alleviating asthma and allergy symptoms
- Mitigating chronic fatigue syndrome
As we age, both our bodily supply of CoQ10 and our ability to synthesize this nutrient from food diminish. CoQ10 levels in humans peak at around the age of 20 and then decline with each passing year. It is believed that by the age of 40, the body has 40% less CoQ10 than at age 20, and 60% less at age 70. In fact, it is estimated that as many as 75% of people over the age of 50 in the U.S. could be deficient in CoQ10, making supplementation of this crucially important nutrient absolutely essential for the majority of us.
Idebenone - Some experts suggest that idebenone, a superb complement to CoQ10, may be even more powerful than CoQ10. Dr. Bill Misner explains:
Idebenone supplies all of the same benefits as CoQ10 [acting as a "spark plug" for the production of energy (ATP), as well as being a potent antioxidant] plus some distinct advantages based on its more complex chemical structure. Idebenone favorably affects blood flow in the brain, reproducing verbal fluency, creativity, and memory. Idebenone enhances endogenous norepinephrine production by facilitating cellular uptake of tyrosine. This suggests that idebenone may indirectly improve the uptake and reproductive role of tyrosine in thyroid hormone production. Thyroid hormone deficiency is a factor in performance and body mass index.
Other "brain benefits" attributed to idebenone include improved cognition and mood, reduced damage from Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, and a role in the prevention of damage caused by excitotoxins (a class of substances produced from the consumption of ingredients such as MSG and some artificial sweeteners), which can impair neuronal functioning. In addition, idebenone appears to positively affect liver mitochondrial function, suggesting that it would support and enhance the detoxification functions of the liver.
Perhaps the most remarkable feature of idebenone is its unique ability to operate under hypoxic (low oxygen) conditions, helping to produce and maintain high energy levels without creating free radicals. Under the same cellular hypoxic conditions that can cause CoQ10 to act as a pro-oxidant, idebenone helps prevent free radical damage while still supporting ATP production.

WITH BREAKFAST TO JUMPSTART THE DAY:
Start each day right with a healthy breakfast and 1 capsule of Race Caps Supreme for a boost to energy levels. Race Caps Supreme provides clean, stimulant-free energy on a cellular level, not the "flash and crash" type from junk-filled energy drinks, or the short-lived boost from herbal or chemical supplements that do not aid in overall health or performance.
Note: For those weighing more than 150 pounds, it is recommended that a second capsule of Race Caps Supreme be taken with lunch or afternoon snack.
BEFORE EXERCISE OR RACING TO TRIGGER ENERGY PRODUCTION:
Take 1 capsule 30-90 minutes prior to workout (with or without food). This is in addition to your daily dosage of Race Caps Supreme.
DURING EXTENDED WORKOUTS OR RACES LASTING TWO HOURS OR LONGER:
This will not only support energy production during workouts, it can result in faster recovery and less depletion of CoQ10 reserves after exercise. For athletes weighing less than 150 pounds, take 1 capsule per hour. Athletes weighing more than 150 pounds should take 2 capsules hourly to ensure continued efficient energy production. By carrying a capsule dispenser or small ziploc bag of Race Caps Supreme, you will feel more energetic during your endurance rides, runs, hikes, and other activities. Make the last hour of training or racing just as strong as the first!
AFTER EXERCISE OR RACING:
Take 1 capsule with Recoverite to jump-start recovery and be ready for just as hard of a training day tomorrow. This recovery regimen is highly effective for those athletes looking to increase training intensities or volume without being impeded by increased muscle soreness and fatigue.
