TruActive™ Benefits and Applications for Sports Nutrition
Athletes require optimal nutrition to train, perform and recover to their highest potential. Detailed scientific literature, available below, demonstrates the benefits provided by immune active proteins for each of these needs. Additionally, extensive exercise suppresses immune systems, a condition referred to as “Olympic Village Fever”, and immune active proteins provide stimulation and support to keep athletes well.

- Pre-workout – immune active proteins provide the essential amino acid building blocks for muscle development. The improved digestibility of non-denatured proteins improves protein bioavailability.
- Performance – immunoglobulins, lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase improve performance and reduce fatigue and delay muscle soreness onset. Lactoferrin supplementation decreases visceral fat accumulation.
- Recovery – the proteins osteopontin and lactoferrin aid recovery and bone health after high intensity exercise. Immune active proteins also prevent illnesses caused by exercise induced immune system suppression.
