SportLegs Supplement - Your Experiences

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
After getting my legs and rear kicked by the Computrainer (been off the bike for several months), I went to the LBS and picked up the SportLegs supplement. I took it as directed on the label and much to my surprise, it seemed to work pretty well. My legs felt well-worked but not nearly as bad as as they did after yesterday's ride. Just to put the cards on the table, I have no financial interest in the product or the company that manufactures it. What I'm looking to find out here is if anyone else has used the product and did anyone experience similar results to what I did. So if any of you folks out there have tried SportLegs, please feel free to share your experiences.

N.B.: I imagine the use of this product is not kosher in competitive cycling, but I don't compete so nothing lost there.

Curious why you imagine SportLegs isn't legal for competitive cycling. It is. SportLegs remains legal for competition under 2008 World Anti-Doping Agency rules (http://www.wada-ama.org/rtecontent/d...08_List_En.pdf).

Is it because it's a supplement, or because of the benefit you feel?

Well if you read the product description prima facie, it screams this is something to enhance performance. The scientific portion of my brain tells me that the ingredients work directly on body chemistry and that might be considered a way to attain an unfair advantage over someone who uses nothing. We've been hearing so much lately about all of these professional athletes using PE drugs and either lying about it or getting caught by a random test. Quite honestly, if I were to compete I would not feel comfortable using something that would even slightly indicate an unfair advantage over the rest of the competitors. Guess I'm too honest, eh?

Resveratrol Supplements can help with endurance and energy release at the cellular level.
According to Wikipedia, Consumer Lab, an independent dietary
supplement and over the counter products evaluation organization,
published a report on 13 November 2007 on the popular resveratrol
supplements. The organization reported that there exists a wide range
in quality, dose, and price among the 13 resveratrol products
evaluated. The actual amount of resveratrol contained in the
different brands range from 2.2mg for Revatrol, which claimed to have
400mg of "Red Wine Grape Complex", to 500mg for Biotivia.com Transmax,
which is consistent with the amount claimed on the product's label.
Prices per 100mg of resveratrol ranged from less than $.30 for
products made by Biotivia.com, jarrow, and country life, to a high of
$45.27 for the Revatrol brand. None of the products tested were found
to have significant levels of heavy metals or other contaminants.
