The idea of astaxanthin loading
Carbohydrate loading, sodium loading, water loading…
There are various types of “loading,” and when I reviewed the way astaxanthin is taken –
・Athletes take astaxanthin regularly
・The effects are more easily felt if started at least a month prior to a race
・The effects are more pronounced with more doses.
– I noticed that it too was a type of loading.
I guess you could call it astaxanthin loading. It’s kind of like setting up a barrier of astaxanthin in advance. As far as I know, the idea of astaxanthin loading doesn’t yet exist in the sports world. It might be a good idea to introduce this new idea to the sports world starting from trail running and marathons.
Ever since I started taking astaxanthin, my leg muscles have maintained their elasticity during races, especially during the final stretch, and I can really pour on the speed during downhills, which I’m good at, without completely expending my legs. Astaxanthin is a must-have supplement. I can’t do without it anymore! *Personal comment
