What's in FRS?
A patented, scientifically formulated supplement, FRS combines
some of nature's most powerful flavonoid antioxidants with key
vitamins and metabolic enhancers.
Daily intake of FRS gives many athletes a feeling of smooth,
sustained energy throughout the day. Many athletes experience
improved energy during workouts, improved exercise performance as
well as shorter recovery times.
FRS is available as a beverage concentrate, powder, ready to
drink beverage and a convenient chew.
The key active ingredients are the flavonoid antioxidants
quercetin and the catechins. The formula has been designed to
enhance the performance of the flavonoids through the integration
of seven key vitamins and metabolic enhancers.
A recent animal study measuring the oral absorption efficiency
of quercetin in FRS demonstrated that FRS significantly increased
the concentration of quercetin in blood plasma, compared to a
quercetin tablet. Significantly, the study findings suggest that
the combination of ingredients in FRS extends the duration of an
effective level of quercetin in the blood, which is an important
factor in enhancing quercetin's overall effectiveness.
Quercetin is known as a potent antioxidant that helps fight
free radicals that can cause cellular damage. Primary sources of
quercetin are blueberries, red onions, apples and spinach. A
number of clinical studies have linked quercetin with mood
enhancement, anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine and long term
Green Tea Catechins
Catechins, the flavonoids from green tea, have strong
antioxidant properties. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the
primary type of catechin found in FRS, is the most powerful of
the catechins. Researchers at the University of Kansas Lawrence
have found that EGCG is 100 times more potent than vitamin C in
protecting cells and DNA from free radical damage in vitro.

FRS is designed to help athletes boost energy during workouts,
enhance performance and speed recovery.
