FRS Healthy Energy – An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Antioxidant in apples and in FRS strengthens immune system.

Many of us have heard the saying an apple a day keeps the doctor away – but it could be closer to 100 apples according to a recent study.

Researchers found that giving athletes quercetin, a flavonoid found in the skin of apples and a key ingredient in FRS®, could help protect people from illness resulting from intensive training.

DARPA, the Pentagon’s research arm, sponsored studies into whether quercetin could be used to help protect US troops. The latest trial saw 40 male cyclists either given one gram of the flavonoid every day – equal to eating 100 apples – or a placebo for three weeks.

Cyclists spent three-days training at maximum intensity for three hours a day. Two weeks later, results showed that nine of the cyclists in the placebo group had chest infections while only one of the quercetin group became ill. Scientists found that the cyclists taking the supplement had higher levels of quercetin in their blood and a reduced level of IL-8, a chemical that weakens the immune system.

No need to eat 100 apples a day, take FRS to help keep your immune system strong. Try FRS Plus for a couple weeks and see how you feel!cans
