The use of mushrooms in dietary supplements has become very popular and there are some brands out there that base their entire product line around them. This could be for a very good reason.
Mushrooms are rich in phytonutrients and polysaccharides that can have positive impacts on human health and performance.
There are many species of mushrooms available as a supplement, for example cordyceps. Known as an adaptogen, cordyceps is often used to support stamina, energy levels, and immune support.
Your next questions might be. What type of mushroom should I be looking for? How do I know I will be getting the right benefits?
This is where Compound Solutions comes in. They created a mushroom blend from the fruiting body and mycelium of 6 different mushrooms:
- Turkey tail

- Lions mane
- Improved time to fatigue
- Improved oxygen utilization
- Increased endurance
- Greater peak power
- Decreased lactate
- Increased work capacity
- Lower heart rate
- Increased VO2 max
- Greater ventilatory threshold
- Improved time to exhaustion
According to Compound Solutions:
"PeakO2® primarily works by increasing your oxygen uptake and improves your muscles’ use of that oxygen. As a result, your muscles are able to regenerate ATP more rapidly, delaying fatigue and preserving muscle glycogen levels. Additionally, the mushrooms contained in PeakO2® also provide a versatile spectrum of antioxidant compounds that counteract the free radical oxidative stress induced by high-intensity training and competitive sports. Combatting multiple reasons for muscle failure makes these performance mushrooms an exceptional ergogenic aid for both performance and whole body health benefits!"
Similar to creatine and beta-alanine, PeakO2® is a "loading phase" ingredient. This means over time after your body is saturated with the ingredient from daily consumption. Unlike creatine and beta-alanine that require around 100g or more for body saturation PeakO2® only requires 28g.
As you have read from the benefits above PeakO2® is an extremely versatile ingredient that can benefit performance and is typically seen used in pre and intra-workout formulas.
We feature PeakO2® in our Electrolyte Endurance Powder formula because it is a natural, science backed approach to increase endurance and is a great use of very versatile mushrooms.
