Muscle Relax

Uncontrolled muscle contractions and their consequences (cramps, muscle tension, hardening, twitching) are a common phenomenon in endurance and game sports and lead to a  performance restriction or failure. Typical causes (especially cramps) are mechanical overload or a lack of fluid, electrolytes and energy.

MUSCLE RELAX from SPONSER® is supposed to aid in such situations. The innovative formulation of pickle juice and vinegar concentrate is based on functional ingredients which have been shown in numerous studies (Miller et al 2010, Craighead et al 2017) to reduce symptoms and improve muscle function.

The practical serving size vials can be taken both acutely and preventively for muscle relaxation, especially in cases of increased susceptibility to cramps (e.g. during exercise or at rest during the night),

Scientific background
Pickle Juice has been used in sport for years. The exact mode of action is still part of ongoing research. Current explanations suppose that the high acid and bitter substances content triggers neurological reactions, which let the brain forget the cramp event. The muscles  thereby reduce their tonicity, come into a relaxation state and the cramp vanishes. The bitter substance quinine and magnesium are other researched ingredients which counteract a cramping tendency. Magnesium contributes to electrolyte balance and normal muscle function.

Utilisation
Cramps are particularly frequent in sports with stop-and-go movements such as football, basketball, handball and the like.

Athletes in endurance sports with longer durations such as triathlon, marathon, trail running, mountain biking, racing biking, etc. are very often affected by restricted muscle function and cramps. Before its market launch, the pickle juice-vinegar solution was tested extensively and successfully on the occasion of the Swiss Epic MTB stage race.

Application

Take one to two vials before or during performance as required, even immediately before expected or occurring muscle dysfunction. Rinse mouth with MUSCLE RELAX for approx. 5-10 seconds, then swallow or spit. Ideally test it before use during high intensity performance, intake depending on individual tolerance.
