CrossFit inc, founded by Greg Glassman in 2000, is a strength and conditioning program with the aim of improving, among other things, cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. Advocating a perpetually varied mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics and Olympic weight lifting, CrossFit challenges athletes across broad domains and is, perhaps, unique in its focus on no single area of physical fitness.

It is, therefore, important in our opinion for athletes to find the correct way of supplementing for CrossFit. The traditional bodybuilding approach of whey protein products, alongside those heavy in creatine, can lead to a level of bulking and bloating that hinders rather than aids many gymnastic and bodyweight movements. Furthermore, such products, which are often heavy in sugar and artificial flavourings, are at odds with the Paleo lifestyle pursued by the majority of CrossFit athletes. It seems counterintuitive to cut out refined sugars, dairy and artificial flavourings in our day-to-day diet and then contradict this ethos entirely in our supplementation.

“My body feels better overall when I am working out. Is ProAnox helping me? Yes, I believe that it is. It is benefiting me in a lot of ways.”

Whether you’re a CrossFit athlete, an active adult, or just someone looking to slow the clock, you need to be careful about what you put in your body. Chemicals, stimulants and junk science masquerading as nutrition have no place in sports – or healthy living. That’s why every product ProAnox create is made from 100% plant-based non-GMO ingredients sourced in the United States and backed by real scientists with good reputations.

BioGenesis is the foundation of every ProAnox activity-based formula. Simply put, it’s the most potent all-in-one performance and lifestyle enhancer on the market. While most nutritional supplements offer just two or three of the top performance- and health-enhancing plant compounds, BioGenesis has all eleven. And instead of following the all-too-common mantra of more is better, ProAnox used the scientific method to determine the most effective combination of ingredients. The results are nothing short of amazing – and you can feel the results in 3 – 5 days.

“I really enjoy the benefits of the products, I just feel so much better recovered when using them and notice a big difference if I have missed a few days. I highly recommend it to all.”
Craig Punton – ProAnox Athlete & 2015 Athlete Games Competitor

BioGenesis lessens the likelihood that muscle cells will be exposed to the damaging effects of reactive oxygen species. This benefit comes from two effects: the stimulation of synthesis of scavengers of reactive oxygen species and the stimulation of synthesis of new mitochondria. In combination, BioGenesis augments the benefits of endurance training and lessens the normally associated negative by-products of oxygen metabolism. Of further benefit for CrossFit athletes, BioGenesis induces a chronic low-level anti-inflammatory effect. Additional benefit results from the stimulation of the stimulation of synthesis of scavengers of reactive oxygen species. BioGenesis makes it easier to train hard, using heavier weights, more reps, and/or more ballistic movement patterns with far less muscle soreness. This will allow someone to train hard and come back the next day to train hard again.

It is with Masters Athletes supplementing for CrossFit that BioGenesis takes further strides ahead of the competition; it promotes the activity of several sets of genes all associated with anti-aging. This benefit comes from the stimulation of synthesis of proteins normally only produced during chronic caloric restriction (the best known promoter of cell-level anti-aging) and of cellular components that lessen the accumulated negative effects of the generation of oxygen free radicals. These effects are proportional both to age and exercise intensity. BioGenesis is particularly effective when taken by physically active adults past age 40.

“I have always trained two or three times a day but since taking ProAnox BioGenesis and BioComplete I can now hit all my sessions with the same intensity and recover far better between them.”

Key ingredients:

Pure 2:1:1 Branched Chain Amino Acids:

A full 10 grams (10,000 milligrams) of the most effective pure 2:1:1 Branched Chain Amino Acids available – with no useless fillers. Short term benefits: Provides your body with metabolic intermediates necessary to boost the citric acid cycle function, resulting in a greater capacity for ATP energy. Long term benefits: An increase in energy and exercise work capacity through mitochondrial biogenesis, also resulting in a quicker recovery and less post workout soreness.

HMB:

Works synergistically with leucine to promote muscle growth and short-term exercise work capacity.

Complex Carbohydrates:

Normalises water content in GI tract and balances the effect of amino acids on intercellular water movement.

Electrolytes:

Give the body a controlled rate of rehydration, provide the athlete with electrolyte replacement, allows glucose and sodium co-absorption to boost water uptake; also helps in reducing soreness.

Creatine:

Provides the body with short-term high power. BioComplete has a small dose so there is no water retention or bloating that can hinder endurance athletes.
