How does it work?
Cranberry extract contains powerful antioxidants called anthocyanosides. Antioxidants can reduce or even prevent some of the muscle damage caused by regular exercise. They also support the immune system during periods of physical and mental stress.
Who is it used for?
Most coaches and nutritionists believe that too much intense training can weaken your immune system and increase muscle damage. Anthocyanosides strengthen and protect immune function, reducing the risk of an illness or infection interfering with your training.

How does it work?
The medicinal properties of cranberry have been recognized for centuries. Native Americans used raw cranberries as a wound dressing. Cranberries have also been used in their raw and cooked state to treat a number of conditions including appetite loss and digestive problems.

Cranberries are high in antioxidants, and contain substances called proanthocyanidins (which give cranberries their rich colour). Antioxidants can neutralise the extra free radicals caused by regular exercise, and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause [1].

New England sailors especially liked cranberries, as eating them prevented scurvy, a disease resulting from vitamin C deficiency. Some evidence suggests that anthocyanosides may strengthen the walls of blood vessels, reduce inflammation, and stabilise tissues containing collagen (such as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage) [2].
How do I use it?
The standard dosage of bilberry is 100 to 250 milligrams twice daily of an extract standardized to contain 10% anthocyanosides.
What results can I expect?
Regular use of anthocyanosides will help to limit muscle damage, and reduce the risk of developing an infection or illness.

What can it be combined with?
Anthocyanosides work best when taken in combination with other antioxidants, such as vitamin C, zinc and selenium.
