What we think
One of our top-selling products is Sur Alt Red. It is an instant performance booster that is LOVED by a huge number of Feed Athletes.
Now you can get Sur's 2nd product that is a complement to Sur Alt Red to help clean up all the extra free radicals your body produces from the extra performance you have put out in your training (in general, and especially when using Sur Alt Red in your training).
The new product is called Immunity and it is not your typical "take Vitamin D" type of product (it doesn't even contain Vitamin D). Instead, they have taken a really novel approach to address an overlooked fact by most athletes that training is an added stress on your body.
When you train you are creating free radicals, this is unavoidable. Having more free radicals than your body can handle, puts your body out of balance. Antioxidants are the secret weapon to combat free radicals, and the simple fact is that athletes need much more than they can get from their regular diet.
The formula is simple. Train More = More Free Radicals = Greater need for antioxidants.
The High-Performance Pack combines Sur AltRed with Sur Immunity:
This is our favorite and one of the most simple performance-boosting supplements on the market. It is phenomenal at increasing oxygen uptake and buffering lactic acid. What you feel is that during hard efforts your legs will simply hurt less, enabling you to push harder than you normally could in training and racing.
Beets have been known to help boost endurance performance for a while, but Sur AltRed is the first beet supplement on the market that contains only betalains extract, the nutrient that produces the red pigment in beets. AltRed uses a proprietary extraction method to remove nitrates and sugars, creating a betalains concentrate with increased bioavailability. You cannot get this from whole beets, beet juice or beet powders.
So what exactly do these betalains do? The AltRed Betalains in these tiny capsules improve oxygen delivery to your muscles and allow you to go further, faster, and longer in training and competition. AltRed's clinically proven athletic performance and recovery benefits are backed by science, 8+ years of field testing, and world champion endurance athletes. These studies have shown that Sur AltRed can help athletes:
- Increase power output
- Cover more distance for the same effort
- Increase cycling and running efficiency
- Reduce markers of muscle damage
- Recover better
AltRed is also safe for sport. It is tested by both NSF Certified for Sport® and Informed-Choice Trusted by Sport. Can you say win-win? We've been testing this in-house for some time now and the results are outstanding. This is now a staple in our supplement closet and the results are in. It works...and works well!
Does it work?
Sur has conducted three gold-standard clinical studies that prove positive effects for endurance athletes taking AltRed. Gold standard studies are double-blind, crossover, placebo-controlled, and randomized. Additional studies are in the works and will be added as they are published.
Highlights from studies:
- 3.5% more watts
- 3% faster times
- 15% reduction in perceived exertion
- 2.5% more distance
- 5.4% increased exercise efficiency
- 9% reduction in exercise-induced muscle damage
- 14% less lactate acid production
Betalain-Rich Concentrate Supplementation Improves Exercise Performance in Competitive Runners
Researchers at the University of California, Davis conducted a study on distance runners and showed that the runners performed an average of 3% faster in a 5K time trial when they used AltRed. The runners also saw an average 14% reduction in lactate acid levels and a 15% reduction in perceived exertion. Read full study
Betalain-Rich Concentrate Supplementation Improves Exercise Performance and Recovery in Competitive Triathletes
Another study at the University of California, Davis conducted on triathletes showed that they performed an average of 3% faster in a 5K recovery time trial performed 24 hours after completing a 10K time trial when they used AltRed. The triathletes also experienced an average 9% reduction in a key muscle damage indicator known as creatine kinase. Read full study
Effect of 1-Week Betalain-Rich Beetroot Concentrate Supplementation on Cycling Performance and Select Physiological Parameters
Researchers at Auburn University conducted a study on cyclists that showed they produced an average watt increase of 3.5% during a 30-minute functional threshold power test when they used AltRed. Cyclists also increased cycling efficiency by an average of 5.4%. Read full study

You might be thinking…
Sounds great, but what the heck are free radicals?
All this talk about balancing free radicals is meaningless if you don’t know what they are and why they pose such a threat to your health!
Here’s the quick low-down: Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons. They can be both harmful or beneficial, but many are highly reactive and rob other cells of electrons, causing damage and contributing to many diseases.
They’re an unavoidable byproduct of cellular metabolism. Exercise is associated with an elevated metabolic rate and increases their production. Free radicals can also come from external sources including pollution, radiation, and medication.
When the amount of these free radicals exceeds the body’s ability to neutralize or get rid of them, they can accumulate and create a harmful imbalance. This imbalance is known as oxidative and nitrosative stress. This type of stress disrupts homeostasis and plays an integral role in the aging process. This is why antioxidants are so important
What’s an antioxidant?
An antioxidant is a substance that can be either manmade or naturally occurring that may delay or prevent some types of cell damage. Fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, making it important for athletes and non-athletes alike to have a diet rich in them. Some examples of antioxidants include vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione, selenium, and carotenoids such as beta-carotene and lycopene.
One component of achieving balance in the body includes having an appropriate amount of antioxidants along with fully functioning systems in the body that process them. This is attained through nutritional support. This support should be designed to maintain optimal levels of cofactors, a substance that is essential for the activity of an enzyme, and supportive antioxidants
Sur Immunity makes it easy for athletes to achieve balance in the most efficient and effective way possible.
