Endurance

Your Endurance Blueprint

Measure level of oxygen-carrying proteins

Low levels of the specialized protein in red blood cells that transports oxygen around your body can cause fatigue and impair your body’s ability to transport oxygen to working muscles. Knowing your levels may help you identify and correct potential underlying causes of fatigue that may impair training intensity, duration, and performance.

Check levels of key nutrients required for red blood cell replenishment

Red blood cells last approximately 120 days before being broken down and replaced with new ones. Certain nutrients are critical to the successful formation of new red blood cells. Determining which nutrients your body needs most in order to promote the replenishment of red blood cells can support oxygen transport capacity.

Endurance Science

  • General Health
    Liver and kidney health markers

    The liver and kidneys are important in supporting athletic performance. During exercise, your liver and kidneys work hard to provide energy sources and filter your blood so that metabolic waste products are removed and important substrates are recycled. This package helps measure how efficiently your body removes waste and reuses substances that are needed to perform efficiently.

    Glucose

    Glucose is your body’s preferred source of energy during most sports.  It allows you to quickly and efficiently turn food consumed into energy to fuel training, competitions and races.  Maintaining an appropriate glucose level is one of the many variables that can impact your energy availability and performance.

  • Hydration

    Hydration is important for performance and safety. Inadequate hydration can impair physical and mental performance and increase your risk for heat-related illness. Hydration insights can help you match personal fluid and electrolyte needs to help you to perform more safely and at optimal levels.

  • Endurance

    Endurance depends on your body’s ability to consume and use oxygen. Red blood cells have the important job of carrying oxygen from your lungs to the working muscles in order to sustain energy and delay fatigue. Evaluating red blood cell capacity for oxygen transport may help to identify potentially correctable underlying causes of fatigue that could allow you to better manage and sustain energy levels.

  • Nutrition
    Protein status

    If your body runs low on fuel, it can break down proteins for energy. Identifying low protein levels in the body can alert you of the need for increased dietary protein to prevent muscle breakdown.

    Micronutrients

    Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals that your body needs to generate energy, stimulate muscle actions, and replenish cells like red blood cells. Micronutrients are important for optimizing metabolic and muscle efficiency and recovery. Evaluating your levels of key vitamins and minerals can provide you with insights to help you fine-tune your diet based on your body’s needs.
