Completus – for well-being when you are exposed to physical strain and lead an active life
A body in movement needs energy and the right building blocks to keep well. If you are a sportsman/sportswoman or physically active in some other way, your body is daily exposed to stress and strain and you must give it what it needs to recover and be able to perform optimally. In order to meet that need it might be a good idea to replenish your diet with a food supplement. Therefore, we at Allergon have, together with physician Dr. Magnus Nylander, developed a new food supplement, Completus, specially designed for you who practice sports or are physically active and wish to help the body attain a physical balance.
Medical doctor, Magnus Nylander has studied for many years how physical strain affects the body and how important it is that the body is compensated with the components it needs. Through his research and his projects, as well as through collaboration with various sportsmen/women, he has demonstrated just how complex the body is and that it is not sufficient to compensate with merely one component or a vitamin. The body needs a spectrum of nutrients in order to function well. Based on this knowledge each active ingredient of Completus is carefully chosen for its antioxidant quality and/or as a compensation so as to minimise the risk of deficiency. All this in order to create the best possible preconditions for you to be able to perform optimally.
Sports, hard work and stress, or really all physical activities lead to the formation of free radicals. The greater the intensity of the activity, the greater the number of free radicals that are formed and since they have proven to have a destructive effect on the performance and recovery of the muscles, it is important that they are neutralised. There are many different substances or nutrients that have this neutralising ability such as, for example, carotenoids, and flavonoids and, not least, Vitamins C and E.
This type of lifestyle also affects the body’s need for phyto- and micronutrients. A heavily strained body is in greater need of recharging, recuperation and refilling. This means that using a food supplement as a complement to a balanced diet is a good choice.
The basic component of Completus is a pollen extract from Allergon that has produced extract from this unique raw material for several decades. Research has shown that the extract has energizing, antioxidant and performance enhancing characteristics*. Furthermore, Completus is comprised of several other micro- and phytonutrients, carefully selected by Magnus Nylander based on his prolonged experience of research and collaboration with sportsmen/sportswomen. The breadth of components that are included in Completus is based on the exact needs of a body that is exposed to physical strain.
The active ingredients in Completus are:
- Pollen-pistil extract based on pollen from maize, cock's-foot, pine and rye as well as the pistil of maize. The extract is comprised of a complex of low molecular substances such as, for example, flavonoids, vitamins, carotenoids, fatty acids, plant sterols, amino acids, polysaccharides and many trace elements including manganese, copper and zinc, that are easily absorbed into the digestive tract and have potent antioxidant qualities.
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B2
- Lipoic acid
The combination of the various components in Completus can together help to enhance the well-being and performance capacity for you who are active in sports, exercise or simply lead an active life.
