Enduring Under Maximum Strain: What Happens When Your Muscles Reach the Breaking Point?

The natural oxidation processes caused by the stress and strain of athletic exertion can be countered by antioxidants, but only if the antioxidant (good) and the free radical (bad) are very close to one another. As antioxidants get oxidized, they generate depleted waste products like oxidized glutathione. These wastes have to move out of the cell or get regenerated by other incoming antioxidants; this shuttling of chemical electron carriers back and forth makes a molecular traffic jam even before these molecules find their way into blood circulation. This poses a major problem for endurance athletes, as, eventually; you’re going to run out of antioxidants to keep the traffic jam moving.

You can’t carry enough fuel to last five days in a car, and you can’t stock up enough antioxidants to meet all of your needs before an endurance event. The solution is to carry the antioxidant stockpile along with you and take in as much as you need, when you need it and where you need it. In much the same way you would take extra gas with you on a long drive through the desert, you can use Heliopatch as an instant supplemental backup supply of antioxidants – in the form of the most energy dense metal known, magnesium. The high energy density of magnesium means a very small amount can last a long time and provide electrons in a way that only a large quantity of heavy, bulky organic chemicals extracted from food would be able to match. On top of its high energy density, the magnesium doesn’t need to be eaten to be effective, which is a relief because we already have too many flavored powders and pills to swallow.

Because you don’t ingest the magnesium in Heliopatch, there isn’t the usual complication of digestion, absorption and distribution to the tissues that need it. The electrons flow into you naked and they travel through the body without blood borne distribution; electrons can flow along the blood vessels at nearly the speed of light instead of travelling within blood cells and cholesterol like vitamins do.

When you apply Heliopatch to your skin, you get a constant, consistent supply of electrons that go where they are needed and target the most aggressive free radicals first – hydroxyl radicals (HO•). These radicals attack your working muscles – damaging DNA, proteins and mitochondria; this leads to a decrease in performance during the event and soreness afterward that can put you off of your regimen. Overtraining makes the process of rebuilding your injured muscle a struggle of two steps forward three steps back. Heliopatch steps in at the moment of extreme exertion when damage would occur and prevents these radicals from running rampant in your cells. This preventative interception of free radicals reduces the need to repair the damage afterward, speeding recovery.

We all train, and during training, we don’t want to shoot ourselves in the foot by overdoing it. During competition, someone else will always be willing to take that extra damage to their body in order to win, so the nature of endurance competition is to push beyond the boundaries of what would be reasonable if you had to be sustainable. Heliopatch makes the damage from what used to be unsustainable workouts manageable and can give you the edge to win on the day of competition and not pay as much for it later. An ounce of prevention (and Heliopatch actually weighs less than an ounce) is worth pounds (and days) of cure.
