Watermelon rind is regarded as having the highest natural concentration of an amino acid known as Citrulline—(contained in every bottle of 'Powre+')—and has potent antioxidant properties crucial to your health. The organic compound Citrulline which the body converts to Arginine, Vitamin C, Beta Carotene, and Lycopene helps divide cells and heal wounds. The rind also contains smaller amounts of Vitamin A, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, and Zinc.*
Citrulline was first identified by scientists in 1930, where it was found in the urea cycle, a pathway from which all mammals are able to excrete the complex organic chemical ammonia. This amino acid has many health benefits which mostly affect the circulatory, digestive and nervous systems. It plays an important role in maintaining the stability of acid in the body as well as balancing our nitrogen and metabolic processes and detoxifying ammonia from our muscle and liver cells.*
Citrulline also promotes energy and supports a healthy heart, libido, and immune system. By relaxing the blood vessels, it helps the blood flow to the heart and throughout the body. It also reduces muscle fatigue, and helps maintain acid-base balance in the body. When muscles become fatigued, lactic acid begins to build up, resulting in that familiar burn that all athletes use as their workout baseline. Citrulline helps break down the lactic acid that builds up during workouts while at the same time assisting the body in eliminating harmful ammonia through the urea cycle.*
For Athletes, Powre+ can be A Secret Weapon to:
- Help Increase your strength and stamina
- Help Improve endurance
- Help Enable faster recovery from exercise
- Help Reduce joint and muscle soreness after a vigorous workout
- Help protect skin from overexposure due to sun-induced free radicals.
- Help assist the body in nitric oxide production.
Adenosine-5-triphosphate (ATP) is used in cells as a coenzyme. Often called the "molecular unit of currency" for intracellular energy transfer, ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism. Mitochondria provides the cellular structure with energy — in short, these are the power centers of the cell and produce up to 95% of your body's energy.
Muscle tissue is rich in mitochondria. That's where you have one of the greatest demands for intense bursts of energy. But there is a downside to this energy-producing activity in that it can generate highly reactive free radicals.
And that's where our proprietary 'Powre+' with an overabundance of Citrulline comes in. Citrulline, as a powerful antioxidant, has been shown to effectively scavenge free radicals from muscle tissue and help reduce singlet oxygen (a particular type of 'bad' oxidation). Without a healthful boost of 'Powre+', free radicals can damage your cell membranes and oxidize your DNA. Additionally, the more strenuous your workout is, the more free radicals you produce - so the bottom line is: Unleash the 'Powre+' for all kinds of benefits ranging from workout recovery to helping your system restore its energy transfer capabilities.
Suggested Use: Take two (2) capsules daily (or more); or as recommended by your health care practitioner. Natural sugars in watermelon rind may also help prevent morning sickness and the more damaging effects of dehydration. Pregnant women should consult their health practitioner in the event of rind-based allergies. Each veggie cap of 'Powre+' contains 500 mg of a proprietary concentrated and complete functional food - extracted directly from organic watermelon rind - created by and exclusively for Zenus, LLC.
