Studies show that a high percentage of adults in North America and other developed countries eat less than the minimum daily allowance of 10 or more essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and proper balance of these nutrients are needed not only for maintaining good health, but also for the dietary management of the bodyâ€™s structure as well as the optimum functioning of its various systems, including energetics.
Elite Athlete has been carefully developed to contain the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients without the danger of toxic build-up or of side effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and long-term safety.
Certain nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and B-complex vitamins are included in high potency amounts because of the vital roles they play in energy production, antioxidant protection, and maintenance of healthy blood cells, nervous system, hormone balance and more.
Elite Athlete contains additional nutrients specifically formulated to support optimal tissue structure and function.

Exercise above the threshold levels of one hundred and fifty fitness points per week or working at 80% of predicted maximum heart rate for at least 5 hours per week may greatly increase the bodyâ€™s production of excess free radicals, which can result in unwanted changes to the bodyâ€™s tissues and cause cells to becomes more susceptible to aging.

Elite Athlete has been specially designed to support the bodyâ€™s normal defenses against excess free radical production associated with strenuous aerobic exercise.
