Framar Health Prize Bundle Details


βœ… Paradox Omega Sport 

Paradox Omega Sport 3:6:7:9 provides total Omega balance and stability essential for optimum performance and recovery.  

Paradox is specifically formulated to provide nutritional solutions for those participating in sport and regular exercise programs. Prevents inflammation naturally thus helps recovery.

βœ… Lamberts Multi-Guard Sport

Multi-Guard Sport is a comprehensive multi vitamin and mineral product available for athletes and for anyone undertaking rigorous training.  This impressive formula contains 26 vitamins and minerals plus antioxidants and is ideal when creating a supplement regime to suit your training requirements.

Magnesium has been included at a high level as research suggests it is not only key to the energy cycle but is also useful for muscle health, and deficiencies have been linked to post-exercise soreness, so the full RDA of 375mg has been added per daily dose. Magnesium has also been recognised as contributing to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. In addition, recent published studies on bone health mean that Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K have been included at generous levels.

Another unique feature of Multi-Guard Sport is the potent antioxidants added. Exercise generates an increased number of free radicals and this rapidly depletes the body's antioxidant stores. That's why green tea extract, quercetin and citrus bioflavonoids have been added to the formula in addition to high levels of the traditional antioxidant nutrients such as vitamins C and E, and the mineral selenium. And of course the formula also includes a full 200mcg of chromium (in the form of chromium picolinate) as this mineral is known to contribute to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. 

βœ… Active Edge Beet Active

Studies show drinking beetroot juice can significantly boost your endurance performance.  This can mean competing and training at higher intensities for longer.

Beetroots are a rich source of dietary nitrates that covert into nitric oxide when consumed. Increased nitric oxide levels can lead to increased blood flow to the working muscles.  Nitric oxide also makes it easier for the “power generators” in the muscle cells (mitochondria) to produce energy.

This process can lower the oxygen cost of exercise, enabling your body to sustain higher intensities for longer and ultimately provide a natural boost to endurance.

BeetActive is a highly concentrated pure beetroot juice.  It contains no added preservatives or other such additives and is made avoiding excessive heat to help protect its beneficial nutrients. It is taken by a host of leading sports teams, including international football teams, triathletes, cyclists, swimmers and runners.
