A pill for your pains

A new natural supplement called Ateronon Active has been developed for amateur and professional sports people suffering from so called, ‘Delayed Onset Muscular Soreness’ (DOMS). Tested in conjunction with top Spanish football club Athletic Bilbao and approved for use by FC Barcelona, Ateronon Active has been well received by sports medics and physiotherapists.

Ateronon Active contains Curcumin, a highly bio-available turmeric extract. This anti-inflammatory agent helps to ease away aches and pains caused by strenuous exercise, assisting with muscle and joint recovery. The patented formulation of Curcumin and soy lecithin used in the production of Ateronon Active, means it is claimed to be 30 times more absorbable than standard turmeric.

Published research carried out by the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition 2014 at the Olympic Training Centre in Barcelona, Spain, shows that Curcumin, is a powerful anti-oxidant derived from turmeric. It attenuates damage from oxidative stress and inflammation related to acute muscle injury induced by continuous exercise. This can be extremely uncomfortable and cause an ‘exercise hangover,’ resulting in fatigue, recurrent infections and an impaired immune infection.

Taking one to two Ateronon Active tablets every day relieves muscle tension and joint strain associated with DOMS. The company says benefits of taking the supplement can be felt within a week of consumption. Its natural ingredients are not sports banned substances.

Chris Meaney, Head of Marketing at Ateronon Active, comments: “This scientific breakthrough is revolutionary to the sports world. Muscle pain and stiffness is a serious issue for those who participate in sports. The effects of DOMS can occur within several hours after strenuous exercise. Ateronon Active is the first natural supplement on the market to provide relief.”

Francek Drobnic, Head of Research at the Barcelona Olympic Training Centre added: “We are always looking for something that’s better than paracetamol or aspirin which don’t work very well and cause side effects. Curcumin does definitely have a benefit. You can measure a reduction in markers of muscle damage in the players’ blood which is very interesting.” Ateronon Active is priced from £15 for a pack of 30 tablets.
