ActiGin® is NuLiv Science's proprietary sports nutraceutical comprised of two highly purified and fractionated extracts from Panax notoginseng and Rosa roxburghii by NuLiv’s pharmaceutical extraction and processing technology.
ActiGin® is the result of over 10 years of research that has shown in one in-vivo and four human clinical trials to:
- Increase endurance time (time to exhaustion) in one high-intensity cycling exercise (80% VO2 max) by 20%*
- Increase energy (ATP) production by raising the pace-making enzyme Citrate synthase in the first step of the citric acid cycle by 42%*
- Speed up recovery by reducing inflammation in muscle as evidenced by the reduction of the inflammatory biomarkers TBARS (24%), MDA (44%), Interleukin 6 (IL-6) (35%), and Creatine kinase (CK) (69%)*
- Eliminate senescent muscle cells through macrophage phagocytosis in a fourth human clinical trial published in Journal of Ginseng Research. Specifically, to decrease SA-β-gal and collagenase, reverse apoptotic DNA fragmentation and leukocyte infiltration, and increase iNOS and IL-6 mRNA expression in the quadriceps after 60-minute cycling at 70% VO2 max*
Blood glucose is stored as glycogen in muscle. It is the fuel for muscle to function during intense (anaerobic) exercise. Exercise induces inflammation on muscle membrane where insulin receptor and glucose transporter (GLUT4) are located and disrupts the supply of blood glucose into muscle.
Pre-clinical and clinical trials suggest that ActiGin® preserves the insulin receptor and glucose transporter on muscle membrane during intensive exercise to ensure a continuous supply of blood glucose into muscle for it to function properly. This is supported by the reduced inflammation and increased glycogen buildup in muscle and also by the clearance of senescent muscle cell through macrophage phagocytosis in the latest human clinical trial published in Journal of Ginseng Research.
