If you want to increase your performance, there are an infinite amount of supplements out there that claim to take your runs, bike rides, or other activities to the next level. How do you know what’s really going to help you and what will just be a waste of money? The truth, for me at least, is that you have to do your research and then test a product out. Products work differently for each person depending on your sensitivity to the ingredients and your tolerance level. For example, I can tolerate way more caffeine than most people, so pre-workouts with high caffeine levels don’t bother me, but it could be catastrophic for some people (i.e. jitters, nausea, etc.).

Glutathione is arguably the most powerful antioxidant. Scientific studies support the many health benefits of maintaining adequate Glutathione levels. The problem is that during exercise, you deplete your Glutathione levels which can cause inefficiencies in cell function. By taking a Glutathione supplement, your body will increase the ability of your cells to produce energy, decrease recovery time, and assist in your cells performing at a peak level for a longer amount of time (2). I am testing the Rob Keller MD Glutathione Rapid Boost.
The Rob Keller Glutathione Rapid Boost (GRB) not only provides you with Glutathione, but also helps neutralize free radicals that are produced during exercise. By eliminating free radicals, you reduce oxidative stress and inflammation allowing you to perform more efficiently and recover quicker. The effective ingredients in the Rob Keller GRB include:
Vitamin C - Reduces the amount of oxidative damage caused by exercise
L-Theanine – An amino acid found in green tea that supports improved concentration and attention span.
Quercetin – A natural flavonoid shown to increase endurance, speed exercise recovery and fuel fat burn
N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine – Has been shown to support joint comfort, mobility and flexibility
Selenium – A mineral known for its antioxidant properties. Reduces oxidative stress during exercise.
Vitamin B6, B12, and Niacin – Important to the production and repair of cells including red blood cells.
The Rob Keller GRB comes in small powder sticks for easy use and travel. I got the 15 pack, which costs $29.95 on the Monthly Auto Ship plan. It claims to increase your energy, Focus, and Immunity.
I tested the GRB before my runs and bike rides for the past few weeks. While it wasn’t a night and day difference, I did notice that I had better focus and slightly more energy during my workouts and that my recovery time decreased, although it was very minimal. The taste is decent, which is always a positive in my book. I have had some supplements in the past that I just couldn’t stomach. I had no issues at all with taking the GRB. I would say that this would be a good addition to your supplements, as long as you know that you won’t become some elite athlete just by talking this. That pretty much goes for any supplements thought, in my mind.
Great tasting drink
Easy to take with you – single serve pouches
Increases energy, focus and immunity
Decreases recovery time
Decent price at $29.95 for 15 single use packets

While I do tend to take more supplements than most people, I think there is a benefit in taking the Glutathione Rapid Boost (GRB). I train 5-6 days a week and really stress my body out at times. I feel that taking a supplement that will help reduce recovery time and increase energy is a great investment and I did see the benefit of the Glutathione Rapid Boost (GRB).
