Does it actually work?
The University of North Carolina conducted an experiment to determine the effects of Peak O2 on aerobic power, time to exhaustion, and lactate levels during high-intensity exercise. For three weeks, subjects consumed either 1.3 grams of the Peak O2 mushroom blend or 1.3 grams placebo (composed of maltodextrin) 3 times per day, resulting in a total daily consumption of 4 grams. At the conclusion of the three week trial, the group consuming Peak O2 displayed significant increases in peak power output, VO2 Max, and time to exhaustion. Contrast that to the placebo group who showed little or no increases in performance.
