Research on nuBound
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted at a major research university using a crossover design, participants took nuBound® (or a placebo) for two weeks.
We brought the athletes into the lab and gave them a high stress exercise challenge, designed to overload their system: they had to do 60 heavy squats, with minimal rest.
After this challenge we took blood samples to learn how their body was responding internally and measured their strength by testing isometric force production.
nuBound® athletes were 41% stronger than the placebo group following exercise and it took the placebo group three days to catch up in their recovery to the nuBound® athletes.
In the first hour after exercise, the nuBound®
athletes showed 32% lower levels of cortisol and 27% less inflammation. Cortisol is a stress hormone that breaks down muscle. Inflammation (or swelling) causes tissue damage. Less muscle breakdown and less tissue damage naturally leads to better recover.
