VO2max Testing: What it is and Why an Athlete Should Know.

VO2max, or maximal oxygen uptake, is one factor that can determine an athlete’s capacity to perform sustained exercise and is linked to aerobic endurance. VO2 max refers to the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense or maximal exercise. It is measured as “milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight.”

This measurement is generally considered the best indicator of an athlete’s cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance. Theoretically, the more oxygen you can use during high level exercise, the more ATP (energy) you can produce. This is often the case with elite endurance athletes who typically have very high VO2 max values.

As an athlete increases his or her exercise intensity oxygen consumption rises.  This continues to a specific point where it plateaus.  This plateau is the VO2 Max and is a point where it becomes painful for the athlete to continue and isn’t long before muscle fatigue forces the individual to stop.

This test has become a valuable indicator of how far a person can push him or herself before the body says, “No more!”

Research has shown that athletes, through intense and lengthy training can increase their VO2 max, however elite athletes find it difficult to gain more than a 1 or 2 percent increase through this type of training due to the fact that they are already in peak condition.  At this point genetics may play a greater role in determining who crosses the finish line first or second.  Athletes have even resorted to using performance enhancing drugs to gain that edge, but such methods result in only minimal gains still of 2 to 4 percent.

It was this test that shined a bright light on ASEA™, which did a pilot study with 17 athletes to determine the effect of supplementation with ASEA™ on athletic performance.  The test results were beyond anyone’s wildest imagination. The study’s concluded that ingestion of the test supplement, ASEA™, for 7-10 days prior to and immediately before a VO2max test, was shown to significantly increase the time it took for participants to reach VO2max under equivalent carefully regulated power ramp-up conditions. Time to VT likewise was significantly extended on average by 10%.

Ten percent!  That kind of increase is what helped Jonathan Hollar, Ironman triathlete, who added ASEA to his training regimen before a major Olympic duathlon race blow away his previous time. “The last time I completed an Olympic duathlon my finish time was 2:55:00. This time it was 2:08:55! I came in second place overall. In previous races [prior to using ASEA™] I never broke the top 100!

Athletes everywhere are getting these kinds of performance increases, with a product that has been thoroughly tested and found free of banned substances. What could ASEA do for you?

Why ASEA for Athletes?

To competitive athletes who consistently push their bodies to the limit to outperform the competition and themselves, ASEA is the world’s first and only stable bio-active solution that increases your maximum aerobic capacity and speeds cellular healing through the power of Redox Signaling, providing the fuel of athletic performance and accelerated recovery.

ASEA, like no other drink, powder, pill, or supplement, will fuel your performance and accelerate your recovery.  The science is real, the product is science.

How does it do this?

You’ve got about 75 trillion cells in your body, and when you’re training or competing, nearly all of them are engaged…blood cells, muscle cells, brain cells, heart cells.  And every single one of those cells requires special little molecules to work at peak efficiency.  Scientists call them “Redox Signaling” molecules.

Redox Signaling molecules are so critical to cell function that your cells go ahead and make their own supply.  These amazing little molecules are first manufactured by your cells, and then later used by those same cells to do their jobs efficiently, whether that job is to power your muscles, pump more blood, facilitate the oxygen-exchange process, or rid your tissues of muscle-stiffening lactic acid.

Your body makes its own supply, but if you want to find a way to improve the performance, endurance, and recovery – to help your muscle cells, blood cells, heart cells, and brain cells work more efficiently – you need to look beyond what your own cells can do.  Because everyone else has cells that are doing the same things yours are doing to a lesser or greater extent depending on their own personal health and fitness.  If you want that kind of improvement, the kind that will give you an edge, you will need an outside source of Redox Signaling molecules.  ASEA is the only source of perfectly balanced Redox Signaling molecules to be found outside living cells, such as those of the human body.

THE ONLY SOURCE.

  • ASEA is clinically proven, completely free of banned substances, and 100% safe.
  • It’s all about Power, Endurance, and Recovery.  No other product in the world uses the body’s own native, natural process to maximize all three.
  • Athletes who drink ASEA have a tremendous competitive advantage over those who don’t.
  • ASEA athletes are finding they can go farther, faster, longer without redlining their heart rate and going into critical oxygen debt.

ASEA: Performance Enhancement that is legal, ethical, and healthy.

See the studies and testing – The numbers are shocking.

ASEA Athlete ~ Jonathan Hollar


My name is Jonathan Hollar. I am from Orlando Florida. I am an endurance Athlete.

An Olympic Duathalon is usually 6.2 mile run, a 25 mile bike ride and 3.1 mile run. I before was doing that in around two hours and forty minutes, now with ASEA I have done that in 2:08.

I am able now to bike faster than ever. I have made up 10-15 minutes on the bike. If I am going to run I am now down to 5:35 pace in the miles. It is just unbelievable.

My last experience in triathlon last season I did 8-10 triathlons over the whole season. That is all I have ever done in my whole life. 92 to 93% of my max heart rate is all I had in me in a triathlon. Now I am noticing in training I am coming home my heart rate monitor is telling me that 101% was reached, 106% sometimes!

In a race now I bring my heart rate up to 98% and I hold it the hold race. I can hold that for 3-4 hours now.

A few weeks into taking ASEA I noticed that I would do a workout and usually I would be done. Now I am doing workout and I am getting back my legs at 10pm and doing a workout instead of going to sleep.

I am actually recovering a lot faster. I am working out two maybe even three times a day, six days a week. My Performance is through the roof. I am able to train harder, longer and faster because of ASEA.

ASEA Athlete ~ Tim Leary

My name is Tim Leary, I grew up here in Santa Monica, California, Played pro baseball for 15 years, 13 years in the Major Leagues as a Right Hand Pitcher. Mostly as a starting pitcher. Won a World Series with the Dodgers in 1998.

Sinjin Smith talked to me about ASEA. I started using it, usually about twice per day. Early on I noticed when I went to work out at the YMCA and I rode the bike for a little longer than normal. I was feeling great, training harder than I had been. I wasn’t thinking about ASEA at the time, but when I came home I was like, well it could be.

Now within the last month I have noticed quite a nice recovery in my body. My flexibility has improved, my endurance has improved. I take ASEA two or three times per day now and I can physically feel the differences. It’s great!

If you could just drink four ounces of a product two or three times per day and feel better why wouldn’t you do it? So I’m on it. I have tried everything else, and this seems to be the X factor of helping me stay limber. I think I can challenge my body and be excited about staying physically active as I age.
