Explore The Key Nutrients in OptiCV
Through a proprietary process, glycopeptides from different species of brown rice are broken down into small units of bioactive complex carbohydrates that are bound naturally to proteins and a high concentration of hydrogen protons. The molecular form and size of the glycopeptides, along with the high concentrations of hydrogen protons, are the perfect fuel for mitochondria to quickly make ATP for maximum muscle contraction and performance.
This increase in ATP, along with the high concentration of glycopeptides, also can be used by the body to quickly and safely repair and regenerate sick and injured tissue. These glycopeptides are key ingredients in joint health. They represent critical building blocks that interlock with other sugars, fats and proteins to coat joint surfaces. Cartilage, which is built from these substances, cushions joints from the bone-pounding forces created by walking, running and jumping. The greater the force or intensity of the activity, the more nutrients the body needs to keep the joints healthy.
Some of these specialized proteins or glycopeptides create the power and flexible interlocking of muscles, tendons, bones and connective tissue. If the body is malnourished, it can’t produce these specialized protein sugars in proper amounts for daily maintenance, and a person who is sick or injured needs an extra amount to speed up the healing process. Proper supplementation is the best insurance against this problem.
Cordyceps sinensis is a mushroom that contains high levels of glycoproteins called beta glucans. Because beta glucans are large molecules, OptiCV contains beta glucans from cordyceps sinensis that have gone through a natural micronized process to enhance their bioavailability.
Beta glucans are powerful immune stimulators, activating macrophages in the immune system. Keep in mind that macrophages are our immune system’s first line of defense against viral, fungal, bacterial and parasitic infections. In addition, macrophages play a major role in recognizing and eliminating aberrant (cancerous) cells from the body. There have been more than 1,000 research papers on beta glucans since the 1960s. Research backed by prestigious institutions such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Harvard, Tulane, Baylor, McGill, University of California, Duke, Washington, the Armed Forces Radiology Research Institute and others demonstrate the high immune-activating properties and cholesterol-lowering properties of beta glucans.
One of the most distinguishing benefits of cordyceps is its ability to increase ATP levels (adenosine triphosphate) in the body by up to 30 percent. This is significant for anyone wanting to increase energy levels. Some studies have shown it to alleviate fatigue by up to 80 percent in the elderly.
Numerous studies also have demonstrated cordyceps’ ability to increase maximal oxygen uptake and anaerobic threshold, which leads to improved exercise capacity and resistance to fatigue. In 1993, at the World Track and Field Games in Stuttgart, Germany, six Chinese women broke world records, smashing nine of them. The coaches acknowledged that a large contributing factor to their success was the introduction of cordyceps in their supplement regime.
D-Ribose is a naturally occurring sugar or carbohydrate that has the capability to regenerate ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels in the body. Recent studies have shown it to be helpful for athletes, body-builders, cardiovascular health and muscle health. ATP is the body’s principal energy-carrying molecule.
D-Ribose is needed by the body to make ATP. During intense workouts or major health challenges, the energy levels in the body tend to drop by huge margins. D-Ribose is required at this time to rebuild the ATP levels in the body, thereby increasing cellular energy.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. The level of CoQ10 produced by the body begins to drop after the age of about 20, and the coenzyme is concentrated in the mitochondria—the “power plants” of the cell. It plays a vital role in the production of chemical energy by participating in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body’s so-called “energy currency.”
In addition, the levels of markers, like creatine kinase and lipid peroxide, associated with increased wear and tear in the muscle were significantly lower in elite Japanese kendo athletes after consuming coenzyme Q10 for 20 days compared to placebos. Researchers from the University of Tsukuba, University of Tokyo, and Kobe Gakuin University reported their findings in the British Journal of Nutrition. The study adds to an ever-growing body of studies supporting the benefits of the coenzyme for sports nutrition.
Recently, another Japanese group reported that CoQ10 supplements may boost physical performance and reduce feelings of tiredness associated with exercise (Nutrition, doi:10.1016/j.nut.2007.12.007).
Stabilized rice bran is the most nutrient-dense, all-natural product on Earth. OptiCV uses a proprietary stabilized rice bran product that contains a range of critical nutrients:
• More than 100 antioxidants and co-factors
• Vitamin E complex with complete tocotrienol and tocopherol profile
• Naturally rich in B vitamins
• IP6 and inositol
• Gamma oryzanol and phytosterols
• Rich in essential fatty acids
• Complete and balanced amino acid profile
• Non GMO (Genetically Modified organisms)
• Hypoallergenic protein
Administration of the whole grape extract has been associated with improved antioxidant status. In a clinical study of elite athletes, supplementation with whole grape extract improved handball endurance by 24 percent and explosive power by 6.4 percent after one month of supplementation.
Exercise-induced oxidative stress was significantly decreased (as measured by serum ORAC values and isoprostane excretion), as was post-exercise cell damage in muscle tissue (as measured by creatine phosphokinase, or CPK levels).
