How To Increase Your Endurance &


Improve Your Ability To Recover

By Michelle M Pearson
Empowered by Grace and led by God’s wisdom, one of the keys to my success in training for and hiking up Africa’s Mt Kilimanjaro was great nutrition. Top in my list of go-to products was this powerful source of redox signaling molecules called ASEA. While pushing my body to it’s physical limits, ASEA assisted me in excellent recovery and amazing utilization of glycogen throughout the six long hiking days. Once completed, ASEA was also a major factor in my recovery time and prevention of jet-lag that normally follows two 22-hour plane rides and a 9 hour time change!

In my training last year, I was on some top notch workout nutrition (thanks to my personal Physician *wink*). But the early training was still slow going for this nearly 50 year old non-athlete! Healthy, yes. Athlete, no. Enter ASEA. The first day I was on ASEA, with only four ounces, I increased from 3 miles hiking to five. Day 2, I increased to 6 miles. In less than 10 days, I had increased to up to 10 miles daily, increased from 12 to 30 miles a week, eventually to 45 miles of rigorous trail hiking per week ~ never in my life have I been at that level of fitness or performance.

If those stats aren’t enough to convince you about the endurance and recovery properties of ASEA, here are some awesome new reports on the effectiveness from the scientific side of research that further boast of the endurance enhancing effects of a workout nutrition plan that includes ASEA:

The Human Performance Laboratory located at the North Carolina Research Campus, in conjunction with Appalachian State University have presented their findings at the recently held 2013 Experimental Biology conference in Boston Massachusetts. The purpose of this study was to determine if ASEA produces  increased endurance during treadmill run times compared to placebo and if so, why.The results? Incredible. ASEA increased run times 29% over placebo!*

How? ASEA seems to lower the inhibition of fatty acid oxidation, how the body turns fat into energy, and increases muscle glycogen sparing, by upwards of 30%.


Increased energy released + energy stored in the muscles = increased endurance.

This confirms what athletes all over the world who use our product experience daily: ASEA works!



The proof is there but how does ASEA work? Check out the new video that shares the secrets behind the science. Five Factors shares the science behind ASEA and shows exactly how it works.

He will make available a comprehensive guide which answers all usage related questions and explains exactly how to make the most of ASEA.
