Olimp ReduKAC™ is a preparation that quickly get back on ones feet after alcohol consumption and reduces the negative effects associated with ‘the morning after syndrome’. The product contains B vitamins, electrolytes and two sources of easily digestible carbohydrates that restore the homeostasis of the body. In addition, the content of choline and green tea effectively nourishes the mind and supports the functioning of the liver.
Regulation of carbohydrate metabolism
After consuming a sizable amount of alcohol, the body experiences a significant drop in blood sugar levels, which may intensify the feeling of fatigue and make us feel worse. The preparation contains two sources of easily absorbed simple carbohydrates, namely fructose and glucose. They constitute the main fuel used by skeletal muscles during exercise, and above all they provide energy to the brain, ensuring its proper functioning. Adjusting the level of sugar in the blood can reduce headaches and the feeling of fatigue, anxiety and irritability.
The vitamins contained in the supplement: riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), vitamin B6, B12 and pantothenic acid contribute to the maintenance of psychophysical fitness and reduced fatigue. Consumption of alcohol is associated with the depletion of stocks of these vitamins, because they are used for the metabolism of ethanol and products of its transformation. These vitamins participate in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, are responsible for transforming food into energy and have an antioxidant function. They also support normal energy metabolism, thereby regulating the level of glucose in the bloodstream and improving the functioning of organs.
Alcohol consumption leads to disturbances in the concentration of basic electrolytes, the deficiency of which increases the feeling of fatigue. The most abundant elements in the extracellular space are chlorides and sodium, and their concentration in the bloodstream decreases with the greater supply of fluids. They help to maintain efficient conduction of the electrical impulses in the nervous system and maintain the correct volume of blood, pressure and pH of body fluids.
Antioxidative power of tea
Green tea extract has strong antioxidant properties that enable neutralization of free oxygen radicals and metabolic waste. The active compounds contained in tea regulate the concentration of glucose and triglycerides in the blood and improve the sensitivity of tissues to insulin. They also have a positive effect on mood and well-being, improve cognitive function and reduce fatigue. In addition, they support the production of nitric oxide, which by increasing the lumen of blood vessels promotes efficient cleansing of the body from unnecessary metabolites, and also have an energizing effect.
Support for liver function
Alcohol is one of the factors negatively affecting health and liver function, because it is responsible for, inter alia, the metabolism of consumed alcohol. For its efficient functioning, it is necessary to supply choline (the demand for which is increased during consuming alcohol) that helps to prevent fatty liver and dyslipidemia. In addition, the increased supply of choline helps maintain the efficiency of the nervous system, because it has neuroprotective effects and ensures proper cell membrane formation in the brain structures and determines the transmission of impulses in the body. The product uses the patented VitaCholine® formula, which is characterized by pharmaceutical quality.
To sum up, Olimp ReduKAC™ is a convenient preparation for restoring the body's fitness after alcohol consumption. It provides fast-absorbing carbohydrates, essential vitamins and minerals that help the body to return to homeostasis. In addition, green tea supports the removal of free oxygen radicals and metabolic waste. Choline, however, provides support for liver functioning, reducing the risk of lipid disorders.
To help regenerate the body after drinking alcohol, it is worth taking care of sleep and an adequate supply of antioxidants, naturally contained in fruits and vegetables.
It is also worth remembering about the appropriate supply of liquids, preferably high-mineralized water.
Supplementation should be combined with N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC), vitamin C and magnesium.

Glucose (dextrose) - saccharide (dextrose) belonging to carbohydrates, which is a basic component of complex sugars. Glucose is used in the body as an energy source, in particular for the brain and red blood cells. It is used directly or stored as glycogen in the liver and muscles. It participates in the synthesis of alanine, converted accumulates in the fatty tissue. For this reason it is not recommended in programs of weight reduction and improved body composition. In chemically pure form is used as a sweetener. Due to tts energy capacity, it used in beverages used in sports as well as in nutritional amino acid and carbohydrate-protein supplements, in the form of dextrose is the basis of so-called. "creatine transporters."
Dosage: according to individual needs, usually pre- and post-workout, before and after exercises.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is soluble in liquids, is involved in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Required for growth of the organism. Takes part in the production of erythrocytes (red blood cells). It is located in natural foods, such as yeast, meat (especially liver, kidney, heart), milk, fish and green leafy vegetables.
A deficiency of vitamin B2 inhibits the growth, diseases of the mouth, loss and greasy hair, seborrhea and stratification of nails. Increases skin roughness and susceptibility to acne and oily skin.
Dosage: 1-2 mg per day.
Vitamin B3 (vitamin PP, niacin, nicotinic acid, nicotinamide) is niacinamide niacin. It is used in interaction with vitamins B1, B2 and B6 in the synthesis of hormones during lactation. It provides proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. It is helpful in inflammatory conditions of the skin. Required for synthesis of sex hormone, estrogen, testosterone, cortisone, and insulin. It does not lose its properties in the manufacturing and storage. The source of acquiring vitamins PP are both products of animal origin (the lean meat, eggs, fish) and vegetable origin (dates, figs, hazelnuts, plums).
Dosage: 2-12 mg / day for children, 14 mg / day for women, 16 mg / day for men and 17-18 mg / day for pregnant or nursing women.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
What is pyridoxine hydrochloride?
Pyridoxine hydrochloride is a basic, the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in supplements and fortified foods. It is a vitamin soluble in water. It converts to the active form of the vitamin - pyridoxal phosphate.
Vitamin B6 is a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions. It takes part in the production of many neurotransmitters, such as GABA, serotonin and catecholamines and it takes part in the metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids. It is an important factor for the process of the creation of red cells and hemoglobin and its deficit may be one of the factors causing anemia. This vitamin contributes to maintaining proper energy metabolism and is important for maintaining well-being and good psychological condition. Its presence supports the breakdown of pro-inflammatory homocysteine to cysteine and further metabolites, thanks to which it may decrease the risk of atherosclerosis and cardiological incidents.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride may be found in many vitamin B complexes and vitamin-mineral preparations available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin, cyanocobalamin) is a vitamin soluble in liquids. Participates in the production of red blood cells and is essential in the absorption of iron by the body. It calming effect, a positive effect on concentration and memory. Intensifies its action in cooperation with folic acid (vitamin M). Usually occurs in animal products, fish and dairy products. It contains trace elements.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to pernicious anaemia, general and immunity weakness, inhibiting of growth and damage to the myelin sheath of nerves.
What is cyanocobalamin?
Cyanocobalamin is a basic, the most commonly met form of vitamin B12 in vitamin B complexes and multivitamins available on the market.
Vitamin B12 is the most known for its influence on neurology. It takes part in building and regenerating myelin sheaths of neurons, thanks to which it contributes to the protection of the nervous system against damages. Because of the ability to increase the level of S-Adenosyl methionine, vitamin B12 may contribute to more efficient synthesis of many neurotransmitters, thanks to which it positively influences well-being and psychical condition.
This vitamin is also engaged in the process of blood production and its deficiencies contribute to the creation of megaloblastic anemia. Its deficits may also concern vegetarians and vegans, elderly people, people with absorption disorders and those using drugs neutralizing gastric acid.
Cyanocobalamin is included in the composition of many complex vitamin supplements that may be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
Vitamin B5 (calcium pantothenate, pantothenic acid, pantotenol) is part of a complex of B vitamins affects the development of the central nervous system, is the building substance of cells. In the body synthesized by the intestinal bacteria. It occurs in animal products (meat, kidneys, liver) and plants (wheat germ, wheat bran, nuts, grains, green vegetables). Prevents fatigue and excessive stress, accelerates the healing of cuts and wounds, acts as a stimulant for the side effects of the use of antibiotics. Deficiency causes skin changes, and difficulty in blood clotting.
Calcium panthonenate – a salt of pantothenic acid and calcium used to raise the intake of this first substance, belonging to a group of compounds called vitamin B5. It is active in many biochemical processes in the human body as an extremely important factor for maintaining homeostasis.
Adequate intake of pantothenic acid helps maintain healthy metabolism of nutrients and obtain easily energy from them. Deficiencies of this compound may be manifested by chronic fatigue and lack of strength, especially in physically active persons.
What is more, pantothenic acid is present in the synthesis pathway of many vital hormones. Because of that, its sufficient supply is critical to hormonal balance. Testosterone is one of the hormones that are affected by pantothenic acid intake. Because of that, its deficiencies may have a negative effect on sexual function.
Pantothenic acid is also indicated to have a cardioprotective effect. It helps maintain normal cardiac function and reduces the risk of atherosclerosis by optimising the lipid profile.
Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
Chlorine (chemical element from the group of halogens) - in the natural form of gas it is poisonous and water-soluble (until recently used as a disinfectant in the water supply system, now replaced by fluorination). It is chemically active element. It is used in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium (KCl). It participates in the process of digestion and maintains acid-base balance in the body, removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver (antitoxin). Natural source of chlorine for the body is salt and bladderwrack.
Chlorine deficiency can occur due to excessive sweating, vomiting, causing digestive tract problems. It also causes loss of hair and teeth.
Excess chlorine, for example. Drink excessive amounts of chlorinated water, destroys bacterial flora and vitamin E.
Dosage: Daily dose should not exceed 15 grams.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
Sodium chloride (NaCl) - salt, the main source of sodium and chloride in the diet. Chlorine is a component of the digestive juices (gastric juice and saliva), regulates the acid-base while maintaining proper pH factor. enhances the removal of metabolic waste products. A deficiency of chlorine can cause metabolic disorders. Sodium is a component of intracellular fluids responsible for water and electrolyte balance and supplements the action of chlorine. The excess - increases the risk of high blood pressure. Both components activate the enzymes responsible for the digestion of starch.
Dosage: Used to give taste to dishes. In its chemical composition there is a sufficient dose of NaCl. The optimal dose is approx. 5 grams per day.
Green tea extract is a concentrate that contains biologically active compounds: polyphenols (e.g. catechin, in the form of EGCG - epigallocatechin gallate), having antioxidant properties and a small thermogenic potential, modifies the action of testosterone metabolites, DTH. Green tea extract is an ingredient of many sports supplements containing fat burners, having pro-health and vitaminizing effect; also for those with low physical activity as an antioxidant and slimming supplement. Available either as mono-preparations, ready drinks, and above all as an extract.
Dosage: 200-500 mg per day (depending of the content of other active bio-components).
Choline belongs to the soluble in liquids group of B vitamins. It is an organic nitrogen base containing lecithin, and acetylcholine. Together with inositol is involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol metabolism, preventing its accumulation on the walls of arteries and deposits in the gallbladder. With the penetration of the brain, contained lecithin improves its action and improves memory. Used in the treatment of age-related diseases (Alzheimer's). It occurs in plant foods: yeast, wheat germ, lecithin, green leafy vegetables and egg yolks.
Choline bitartrate a combination of one molecule of tartaric acid and choline, and in this embodiment is a precursor of acetylcholine (neurotransmitter). The human body is able to intracellular synthesis of choline, using the amino acid and vitamin B12. Because of the possibility of shortages of the above mentioned substances, it is necessary to supplement them with supplementation. Choline is a component of lecithin, which is the building substance of cells conditioning the proper functioning of the nervous system, and sphingomyelin, acting as an insulator of nerve tissue. Bitartrate affects the course of fat metabolism. In the sports supplementation of choline, bitartrate is used in the stimulating supplements,, affecting concentration and programs of weight control (fat reduction).
Dosage: 1-3 grams per day.
