By Tyler Lacoma,
Let’s take a look at a unique and helpful product from SNS that’s an excellent supplement for anyone interested in fitness and living a healthy life. It may be particularly helpful for athletes and competitors that really want to shave seconds off their times or push their maximum distances a little bit further. We’ll go over how Peak 02 works, what it excels at, and all the details you should know.
You may have never heard of an SNS product quite like Peak 02 before – it’s what is known as an adaptogen, or an organic combination of substances that are designed to help the body adapt to stress more easily, with fewer annoying side effects. That includes physical stress, which is why adaptogens are becoming an increasingly popular way for people in serious training to lift more and see better results and endurance with a complete safe method.
Peak 02’s unique formula uses a combination of mushrooms specifically chosen for their adaptogen effects when it comes to workouts, including Shiitake, Reishi, Lion’s Mane and Turkey’s Tail.
Odd names aside, there is evidence that adaptogens – and Peak 02’s formula in particular – can really make a difference for those working to push their limits. A study from the University of North Carolina showed real results, noting that: “In the first 7 days of the 21-day clinical study, competitive athletes supplementing with four grams of PEAK02® improved their peak power output by 17.6% over baseline.” The athletes also managed to improve their time to exhaustion by 70 seconds!
Benefits of Peak02:
- Increase endurance
- Increase maximum output and lift
- Improve oxygen intake
- Train more effectively for events
- Shave time off your records
- Train longer and harder for better gains per session
- Shiitake: These mushrooms are renowned for their ability to help people recover from lung issues and improve blood circulation, thereby reduce weakness and exhaustion at the same time. Extracts have also been used to treat arthritis and as a source of the rare vitamin D2.
- Reishi: Reishi mushrooms have been a medicinal herb for thousands of years in places like China. Today, we know that they have over 200 active ingredients that work together to provide benefits like reduced insomnia, faster recovery, less nausea, and much more. Some Reishi compounds also have a molecular structure similar to steroid hormones!
- Lion’s Mane: This mushroom is famous for its ability to improve focus and reduce brain fog. It can even help protect brain tissue! This is important, since focus is a key aspect of training and pushing your results as far as they can go.
- Turkey’s Tail: This mushroom has been shown to help improve immune function and overall response. It can also help with digestive health, which makes it a great addition if you are taking other supplements at the same time!
- Cordyceps: A common type of mushroom, cordyceps has been shown to help regulate and maintain energy levels in the body. Not only do you get more energy for workouts, but may find it easier to sleep and recover as well.
What People are Saying About Peak 02:
We suggest you take a look at The Thirty’s review of adaptogens, where they said, in part:
“Overall, I think the adaptogens helped balance out my stress levels and maintain my overall mood. Even though I was good about keeping up with my wellness routine in other areas, I think the combination of everything really helped keep me on track and stabilized….Adaptogens are something I'll definitely be recommending to my friends when they're feeling burnt out or overwhelmed and are looking for some assistance for managing everything. Like most things, I think they'll work better for some people than others, but it's definitely worth a shot to test out for a few weeks and see if it has a positive impact.”
You may also be interested in reading about what Dr. Will Cole has to say about adaptogens on his blog, where he reports:
“As both a functional medicine doctor and someone who has struggled with adrenal fatigue in the past, I’ve personally experienced and witnessed the clinical benefits of adaptogens over the years, but in an effort to really put them to the test, I decided to go full-on health nerd and practice a strict 30-day Gwyneth-inspired adaptogenic diet. Since some adaptogens are calming (such as cordyceps, schisandra, and reishi) and some are stimulating (like maca and rhodiola), it was fun to experiment with creating my own blends depending on what my body needed on any particular day.”
Dr. Cole also reported that cordyceps (found in Peak 02) helped him maintain energy, and the Reishi was great for promoting better sleep!
Good question – but it will take a bit to explain. First, fungi like mushrooms are very compatible with the human body. In fact, fungi cells are more like human cells, which may make them easier for the body to absorb and use. A wide variety of mushrooms can be considered superfoods and offer many different health benefits for your brain, hormones, immune system, and energy. But one compound in particular is known as polysaccharides, something largely unique to mushrooms and able stimulate the immune system and provide whole-body wellness, which is why supplements like Peak 02 are so good at increasing endurance levels.
However, we’ll end our answer by pointing out that many natural foods can act as adaptogens, not just mushrooms. This particular combination has simply been found to be very effective when it comes to promoting endurance and energy.
Can I Take These Supplement with Other Products?
Yes! There are no interactions to worry about. In fact, it’s a good idea to take this product along with something else that will help heal your muscles quickly or prevent injury during intense workouts. We suggest an anabolic supplement to encourage muscle growth, and probably protein supplements so that your body has all the right material to work with when building new muscle. While Peak 02 is a great product when you want to push yourself, it’s always important to avoid injury and practice proper form!
Is an Adaptogen Right for Me?
An adaptogen can be a good supplement for any type of fitness goal, and may also help you sleep better and recover more easily. However, Peak 02 is specifically targeted at those who really want to push themselves and avoid getting tired out too quickly in their workouts. It’s a great pick for people who are training for a competition, for example.
Is There Any Particular Time I Should Take These Supplements?
No, but taking them with a quick meal or shake before a workout may yield the best results. Remember, this product is designed for long-term benefits as you push your workouts as far as they can go, so it effort and time are also key ingredients. Keep consistent in taking this supplement to see results.
Are These Ingredients Safe?
Yes. These are common mushrooms that you have probably eaten with food before, and entirely safe to consume. The key with Peak 02 is that the extracts are highly concentrated and easy to eat in pill form.
