Naturally BOOST EPO? Sounds good to me.
It’s supposed to take about a week to start noticing a difference in your performance. My plan is to track my performance in a pseudoscientific way by using my rides on Strava to do comparisons from a 30 day starting point. I really hope I notice a difference!
I read about EPO-BOOST in Bicycling Magazines May 2012 issue: “How Elite Athletes Are Gaining an Edge:” and was curious how they were boosting red blood cell production naturally as the article claimed.
I would encourage anyone interested to visit the HOW IT WORKS page of the EPO-BOOST site and read through the detailed info, but here is the basic idea: “EPO-BOOST™ safely stimulates your body’s natural production of the erythropoietin (EPO) hormone. EPO increases the body’s oxygen carrying capacity and has been shown in controlled human clinical studies to significantly increase athletic performance and endurance.”
When I first went to the EPO website and started reading about the ingredients the first thing they mention is the use of Echinacea in a dosage of 8g per day. My initial thought was that I could save some money by purchasing Echinacea and concocting my boost, but after searching at my local store and online I have found that it’s actually much more expensive to purchase that much Echinacea on its own and you do not get the other vitamines and minerals included in the EPO-BOOST formula.
I started EPO-BOOST a week ago and so far I feel great. My last two rides have netted several PR (personal records) and I have a century club ride coming up on May 5th so the timing is great to have started the supplement. With any luck my friends will have a hard time staying on my wheel!
I plan to do a wrap-up post after my full month is up.
