Yamamoto Nutrition - Caesar - IAFSTORE.COM


From the very long experience in contact with athletes of the caliber of Alessio Sakara, we know that energy, maintenance of rhythm and effective power, maintenance of focus and clarity and greater resistance to fatigue, are determining factors in the performance of athletes in combat sports, crossfitters. , triathletes, rugby players and many others. Efforts that often not only require high intensity, but frequent changes of pace and for prolonged times. The effectiveness of a "preworkout" supplement does not translate into a strong adrenalin rush, a feature erroneously frequent in many products on the market, which would excessively increase the heart rate with the risk of altering the state of anxiety, lucidity and reactivity, also favoring dehydration, where "second" timing can generate (or avoid) the knockout blow, strangulation, or best completion of the WOD. The "preworkout" supplement must have as its objective:

  • energy factor (not excessively adrenergic);
  • greater focus and clarity;
  • greater psychophysical response of the organism to stressors;
  • greater resistance to fatigue.

CAESAR is a supplement that responds to these needs, as a true ally in the athlete's arsenal, in supporting mind and body to face the performance with greater energy and clarity for a longer time.

This is thanks to a careful choice of elements in the formulation of this "optimal" product, including three of the "adaptogens" par excellence: Ginseng Panax, Rhodiola Rosea, and Cordyceps, whose efficacy has been demonstrated. All known "tonic" elements of Oriental Medicines that act to make the body stronger in its response to stress and psychophysical fatigue, combined with a slow-release form of microencapsulated caffeine, to ensure a more gradual energy boost that lasts for some hours.

Gineseng Panax is one of the most popular herbal food supplements even in the modern world, where its ergogenic effect, its ability to reduce everyday mental stress as well as to intensify preparation and approach has been demonstrated. of a competition, favoring greater psychophysical endurance and concentration, with strengthening of the immune system, always very stressed in athletes. It is an excellent antioxidant that facilitates mitochondrial activity during exercise, with particular indication in prolonged aerobic efforts, where in addition to lowering the concentration of lactate in the blood, it has been seen that the chronic use of ginseng improves cardio- respiratory.

The use of Rhodiola rosea was well known even in ancient times, where it was already used in Ancient Greece, the Viking populations took it as an invigorating after an intense physical effort, and in China and Tibet the tonic properties for increase psychophysical resistance. Its many features make Rhodiola successfully used in sports, where scientific literature has shown that it can support the athlete's immune defenses, reducing the risk of overexertion or overtraining during intense training sessions or endurance competitions such as cycling and marathons. In favor of the athlete, it should be noted that it has a very strong tonic action on an intellectual level, improves focus and memory, thanks to the action on dopamine and noradrenaline, reducing mental fatigue and effectively raising our attention threshold. Rhodiola reduces the secretion of catabolic hormones such as cortisol. It offers a great help in terms of mood, and acts in reducing the onset of DOMS (delayes onset muscole soreness), after intense physical exercise, thus facilitating post-work-out muscle recovery, lowering the levels of damage markers muscle such as myoglobin, creatinkinase and lactate dehydrogenase (= myprotective role) and the systemic level of inflammatory cytokines, following prolonged and intense physical activity. As with Ginseng, it has its own mitochondrial ergogenic role and improves cardiovascular and ventilatory activity during endurance activities.

In recent years, there are several scientific studies and as many evidences, which have shown that Cordyceps, the increasingly famous medicinal mushroom of the Chinese tradition, which thanks to its content of bioactive substances, performs multiple beneficial actions on the body with particular indication to the needs of the athlete. Entered in the "history" of sport in the 90s, its fame in the sports field came, at an international level, in 1993, when at the National Athletics Games held in Beijing and at the World Championships in Athletics, where the Chinese athletes established numerous records, attributing merits to this natural supplement used consistently in the months of preparation. Rapidly spreading in the western sports world, Cordyceps has been a supplement of the most appreciated by athletes of the caliber of Alessio Sakara, used as it is able to increase blood oxygenation, thus also increasing the production of ATP, the fuel with which we produce the energy necessary to live, and thus increasing the amount of energy available in the body. Of great importance for endurance sports athletes in particular, thanks to its adenosine and cordycepin content, it is capable of exercising an interesting vasodilation, increasing the blood flow in the body. Cordyceps intervenes in reducing not only tiredness and the sense of fatigue, but also anxiety and stress, and this is also precious for the athlete, because it helps in better managing tension and stress before and during the race. During training or performance, Cordyceps has an antioxidant effect that reduces free radicals and anti-inflammatory, and promotes better recovery after training also because it accelerates the disposal of lactic acid.

Although the strength of this product is the synergistic combination of three powerful adaptogens, it has been chosen to include the stimulating support of caffeine at the nervous level and beyond, while maintaining its non-"dominant" or leading role. As an effective adjuvant "partner", the presence of the famous alkaloid exploits its stimulating, energizing effects at the level of activation of the nervous system, but also analgesics and cardiovascular (in this regard it is necessary to remember its power to raise the heart rate), respiratory and metabolic effects on our body, thanks to the release of fatty acids and the absorption of carbohydrates. Its use in the world of sport has been known for a very long time. In endurance sports, this substance is used to reduce the sense of fatigue, produce a performance improvement and delay the sense of muscle exhaustion, always keeping the attention threshold high, as in the brain, the activation that generates the intake of caffeine is a "pleasant" wake-up call that improves attention, reflexes and mood, and reaction times. The further "plus" of the version contained in CAESAR is that of being a prolonged release, which allows its effects to last up to four hours from taking, all in favor of the performance of that last round or that particularly demanding WOD to make the sessions of triathletes or "power" or cross-country skiers to the maximum efficiency.

* Medicinal Mushrooms in general, and therefore also Cordyceps, are well accepted by the IOC (International Olympic Committee) and by all international sports federations, because their intake does not damage the body, does not alter the metabolism but, on the contrary , protects him. They are in fact recognized as safe remedies, capable of bringing health benefits.
