This past Friday was an exciting day for Topical Edge, and one we’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. The clinical trial studying the effects of PR Lotion in athletes’ performance was presented at the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is a huge validator for the efficacy of PR Lotion and the trial itself.
The annual ACSM Conference is the premier conference for everything Sports Medicine-related and is Internationally recognized as the place to hear leading experts and learn about the latest research in every aspect of sports medicine and exercise science. In addition, two abstracts will be published in the peer-reviewed journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise (MSSE), volume 50:5 supplement.
The clinical trial performed by Mark Kern PhD, RD at San Diego State’s Exercise & Nutritional Sciences Department had 20 elite cyclists undergo a series of tests over four visits to determine the impacts of sodium bicarbonate in a transdermal delivery system on exercise performance and Delayed Muscle Onset Soreness (DOMS). In the study, PR Lotion was shown to provide significant changes in athletes’ physiology. The trial white paper can be viewedhere.
Results of the trial concluded that PR Lotion aids with:
Presentation of these trial results at the ACSM Conference is further validation of the findings and rigorous testing protocol that was followed. PR Lotion has proven to be a new way to supplement sodium bicarbonate without the side-effects of oral use.
This product is phenomenal! Truly is a game changer. Used it recently for my 12+ Hour Spartan Endurance Race that required me running over 30 miles, climbing up mountains, and doing over 65 obstacle courses. Amp Human was critical in me finishing this race! Will continue using it and telling others about it
I am consistently surprised by how well this stuff works. I use it for all my long rides and am much less sore the following day than I expect to be.
I used this for the first time during a half marathon and absolutely loved it! I had almost no pain in my legs, WAY less than normal, and I was able to run longer because of it. Highly recommend this!
I’ve been so happy with PR Lotion. I can push through hard intervals and race with confidence that I do t have to overreach and burn out early. There are plenty other products that make claims, but PR Lotion has the research and results.
I love this stuff. My legs don't cramp, they aren't sore afterwards, and it's become a pivotal part of my pre-race routine.
I have been using the lotion mainly for my lactic threshold sessions. I get through the workouts with less pain and find that I am able to recover for the next day. The biggest plus is not feeling so much of the burning sensation in my hamstrings as much after high intensity interval runs.
The first two times I used PR lotion, I won two UCI cyclocross races! Of course, it's become a staple part of my training and racing routine since then. Recently, I competed in 4 events at Sea Otter in 3 days - using PR lotion before and after each one. I won the final event and was amazed how well my legs held up for all of the efforts.
