Providing support during exercise and regeneration
To assist with sports performance
Performance enhancing formula:
- innovative day & night concept
special combination of herbal adaptogens and micro nutrients essential for sport
- more energy
optimizes the release of the ATP (responsible for intracellular energy transfer in muscles)
- increases exercise capacity
reduces lactate production and protect the muscle cells
- improved training effect
enhances performance and reduces regeneration time
Specific supply around the clock
adaptoLoges® has been developed to meet the special needs of athletes. It contains a combination of the herbal adaptogens Rhodiola rosea, Eleutherococcus and Schisandra supported by micro nutrients essential for sport.
The special day & night concept consists of differently composed capsules for more physical power during the day and improved regeneration during the night.
adaptoLoges® optimizes the function and interaction of muscles and the musculoskeletal system. The required regeneration time is shortened and the training effect improved. Long-term, this improves the performance ability.
Scientifically evaluated and proven
The adaptogens are herbal substances that have the ability to increase the state of non-specific resistance. Adaptogens are metabolic regulators which increase the ability of an organism to adapt to environmental stressors and prevent damage to the organism by such stressors. One clinical trial including 215 athletes from Olympic teams proved that regular intake of the herbal substances included in adaptoLoges is effective for enhancing tolerance to physical and emotional stress as well as for the recovery of athletes during and after high–intensity exercise and competitions. For example, after 4 weeks of intake the blood lactate concentrations were decreased by 12 %.

What are the benefits for athletes?
In a clinical trial plushed in the Journal of Athletic Enhancement in 2015 including 215 athletes from various sport disciplines included in national Olympic teams it was proven that regular intake of the adaptogens Rhodiola rosea, Eleutherococcus and Schisandra is effective for enhancing tolerance to physical and emotional stress as well as for the recovery of athletes during and after high–intensity exercise and competitions. This was shown on the basis of the development of different performance-defining factors during a period of four weeks.
Reduction of lactate concentrations
Lactate is the byproduct of glucose utilization by muscle cells. The lactate concentration in the blood reveals the physical performance ability of an athlete. Excessive lactate levels can result in a decrease of performance.
After a period of 4 weeks of intake the lactate production was decreased by -12 %.
The Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) is one of the best known and most used validated fatigue scales to assess the fatigue level of participants.
Compared to placebo, the adaptogens significantly reduced fatigue by 11 %.
The anabolic index determines the metabolic status. A low AI may lead to the conclusion that catabolic (degrading) processes may be prevailing and that a regeneration period is required. A high AI concludes to anabolic (recharging) processes which indicate increased performance ability. According to the AI, regeneration improved by 13 %.

adaptoLoges® should be taken long-term for optimal training effects and maximal performance. adaptoLoges also supports and protects in intensive exercise, e. g. training camps or after longer recreation phases.
adaptoLoges® and Doping?
adaptoLoges® is a food supplement without any forbidden substances. It can be taken by all athletes from various sport disciplines.
It is produced according to the highest quality standards in Sweden and Germany. Regular analyses are carried out by the LGC (wordwide leading anti-doping laboratory in London). (For further informaton please refer to: www.informed-sport.com).
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogen“ is an alternative term for biologically active herbal substances which increase the ability of an organism to adapt to environmental stressors and prevent damage to the organism by such stressors. Including physical stress caused by competition and exercise, in particular.
During the period 1950–60, the idea of using herbal medicinal plants to increase stamina and survival in harmful environment was developed, and a new concept of “adaptogens” was introduced by the toxicologist Lazarev to describe compounds which could increase “the state of non-specific resistance” in stress.
This concept was based on Hans Selye’s theory of stress and general adaptation syndrome, which have three phases: alarm phase, phase of resistance and phase of exhaustion.
At the end of the 1960s Brekhman and Dardimov proposed that adaptogens are innocuous agents, nonspecifically increasing resistance against physically, chemically, biologically and psychologically noxious factors (“stressors”), normalizing effect independent of the nature of pathologic state.
As a pharmacotherapeutic group adaptogens were recently defined as herbal preparations that increased attention and endurance in fatigue, and reduced stress-induced impairments and disorders related to the neuro-endocrine and immune systems. This definition was based on evidence obtained from clinical trials. *
