Multisport athlete and FTM product tester - Ben Morris - explains why First Endurance is one of his favorite endurance supplements brand.

OptygenHP has been engineered to optimize endurance and performance. The main adaptogens in OptygenHP were first used by Tibetan Sherpas to help them climb Mt. Everest. OptygenHP contains these unique adaptogens because clinical research on elite endurance athletes shows they increase VO2Max, increase the body’s ability to adapt to high levels of physical stress, increase anaerobic threshold and reduce lactic acid.

A 2012 study done at Luther College showed endurance athletes who used OptygenHP increased time to lactate threshold by 42%. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects on highly trained distance runners of OptygenHP.

Though changes in performance variables (VO2 max, hemoglobin, serum ferritin and salivary cortisol) were similar between groups, time to onset of lactate threshold was nearly 42% greater in E=experimental vs C=control group.

  • Increases VO2Max
  • Increases anaerobic threshold
  • Reduces lactic acid & Modulates Cortisol


Take 4 capsules daily with a meal. For best results, OptygenHP should be used consistently for many months. If you start taking OptygenHP a week before a race, benefits will be minimal.

Q: How is this OptygenHP formula different than the previous formula?
A: This formula contains the adaptogenic herb ashwagandha.  Research shows ashwaganda improves VO2max, modulates cortisol and increases work output.    We have substituted 150mg of Rhodiola with 150mg of ashwagandha. The formula delivers 150mg Rhodiola, 150mg ashwagandha, 800mg cordyceps, 200mcg chromium, 50mg ActiGin and our proprietary ATPro matrix.

Q: Why are the capsules red?
A: capsules are dark red, not clear, to further reduce UV light degradation ensuring the highest quality, potency, and purity.

Q:  How will OptygenHP help me race better?
A:  This formula will dramatically improve your training and recovery.  It’s designed to help you through your most intense training and racing. Research has shown the following endurance benefits:

  • Increases Endurance and Performance
  • Reduced Lactic Acid
  • Increases oxygen utilization
  • Increase in VO2 Max
  • Increase in Time to Exhaustion
  • Increase Anaerobic threshold
  • Improved exercise capacity
  • Increase Maximal Oxygen uptake
  • 30% – 50% increase in Oxygen Utilization
  • Increase ratio of ATP by 45% – 55%
  • Enhanced Endurance
  • Increase in ATP production 

Q: How do I maximize the benefits?
A:  For best results, use OptygenHP during all your intense training and racing. This will allow you to train at a higher level by improving the body’s ability to adapt to physical stress, increasing anaerobic threshold and reducing lactic acid. These improvements will help you race at a higher level. For best results, you should use OptygenHP consistently for many months. If you start taking it a week before a race, benefits will be minimal. 

Q: Should I take OptygenHP every day?
A: Yes, it’s important to take OptygenHP daily, even on days you are not training or racing.  If you don’t take it every day, you will not experience the full potential.

Q: How long will it take before I start noticing the benefits?
A: You should start experiencing the benefits of OptygenHP formula approximately six (6) days after you start taking it.

Q: When should I take OptygenHP?
A: It is best to take OptygenHP formula every day with a meal.

Q: What is Beta-Alanine and how does it work?
Q: What is Beta-Alanine and how does it work?

A: Beta-Alanine is an amino acid that interacts directly with the amino acid carnosine to buffer lactic acid. With intense training, you can increase your carnosine levels with a limiting factor: the body cannot produce enough Beta-Alanine to allow the body to continue to increase carnosine levels. Clinical studies show that supplementing with Beta-Alanine allows the body to produce significantly higher carnosine levels. The result is a highly effective mechanism for the metabolism of lactate, which in-turn improves endurance capacity.

Q: What are the benefits of taking Beta-Alanine?

A: Cutting edge human clinical studies show Beta-Alanine supplementation:

  • Significantly improves muscular endurance.
  • Improves exercise capacity
  • Increases Total Work Done by 13%
Boosts strength

  • Increases endurance capacity
  • Enhances Ventilatory Threshold
  • Delays onset of neuromuscular fatigue

Q: Will OptygenHP help me recover faster?
A: Yes, it will help you recover.  Because this formula was developed to help you adapt during times of maximum stress, it also aids in recovery.

Q: Should I ‘cycle’ on and off with Optygen/OptygenHP?
A: Great question. Both these products work best when you are ‘stressed’, so use the product during stressful training. The cycling period should parallel your training program. In other words, you should be using Optygen/OptygenHP consistently through all hard training blocks/months and go off anytime you have a break or downtime. For some, this means being on the product through most if not all the racing season. For others, it might mean cycling off for a week once every 4-6 weeks.

Q:  Is the OptygenHP formula legal?
A: Absolutely.  First Endurance has taken additional measures to ensure that our products are safe, legal and stimulant free.  First Endurance supplements are legal to use in any sporting event governed by the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA), the US anti-doping association (USADA) and by the UCI (Union Cycliste International), US Cycling, International Cycling, US Triathlon and International Triathlon.
