What is Fruitflow®?

Fruitflow® is a tomato extract containing naturally occurring tomato compounds which can beneficially interact with blood platelets. Supported by human clinical trials, Fruitflow® is the first natural ingredient with a scientifically approved health claim to contribute to healthy blood flow.

When should SiS REGO + Fruitflow® be taken?

For optimum performance gains, one SiS REGO + Fruitflow® gel sachet should be taken between 1.5 and 3 hours before commencement of intense exercise.

How does SiS REGO + Fruitflow® work?

In order to reduce muscle inflammation, SiS REGO + Fruitflow® helps to reduce the overstimulation of blood platelets during exercise, which in turn helps to contribute towards healthy blood flow.

During strenuous exercise, the body produces adrenalin and a protein called thrombin, which combine to activate blood platelets and increase blood coagulation. Activated platelets trigger inflammation throughout the body, which also produces nitric oxide, which helps to calm over stimulated platelets. However, in strenuous exercise the demand for nitric oxide can be greater than the body’s capacity to produce. This results in less control over platelet activation, which in turn gives rise to unnecessary systemic inflammation.

SiS REGO + Fruitflow® has beneficial effects on blood platelets giving them more resistance to activation during periods of strenuous exercise, reducing your bodies total inflammation. Studies have shown that this can help to shorten recovery times.


Why is reducing over-stimulation important?

In order to improve, an athlete needs to train hard. The frequency and quality of training is reliant on how quickly they can recover from the damage and inflammation caused by training and competing. Shorter recovery times means an athlete can train harder or compete faster next time.

The pain felt during recovery is from muscle inflammation, which is good as this is part of the adaptation process, however intense training over-stimulates blood platelets which can cause additional and unnecessary inflammatory stress throughout an athlete’s body. We know that athletes have resorted to all kinds of ways to reduce total body inflammation, including NSAID’s, ice baths, compression and cryotherapy. These approaches not only reduce systemic inflammation but may also reduce the muscle inflammation, which is necessary for adaptation.
