Optygen HP, a premium, high-performance endurance supplement from First Endurance, is the go-to choice for athletes who want to take their performance to the next level. This all-natural and powerhouse product contains key ingredients such as Rhodiola Rosea and Cordyceps which are proven to increase your VO2 max and time to exhaustion by up to 18%. Athletes have reported improved performance with Optygen HP in just 3 to 5 days of regular use, with results that last after cessation of use. With this amazing product, you'll be reaching your fitness goals faster than ever before.
Ashwagandha Root Extract is an ayurvedic (system of medicine with historical roots) herb used for thousands of years for its ability to release tension and improve breathing. Recent clinical studies on trained athletes have shown chronic supplementation with Ashwagandha Root Extract to improve VO2max and cardio-respiratory endurance in healthy athletes.

Dosage recommendations: take four capsules daily with a meal. For best results, use OPTYGENHP during all intense training. OPTYGEN HP should be used consistently for many months - if you start taking Optygen HP a week before a race benefits will be minimal.


The new and improved OptygenHP has been engineered to optimize performance for endurance athletes. This next-generation formula has been upgraded with Ashwagandha to modulate cortisol, improve power and enhance VO2 Max. In addition, there’s a clinically effective dose of premium grade Rhodiola & Cordyceps because clinical research shows the combination of these two endurance-specific adaptogens improves aerobic performance. Each serving of OptygenHP also delivers 1500mg of Beta-Alanine to boost strength and enhance exercise capacity.

The main adaptogens in OptygenHP were first used by Tibetan Sherpas to help them climb Mt. Everest. OptygenHP contains these unique adaptogens because clinical research on elite endurance athletes shows they increase VO2Max, increase the body’s ability to adapt to high levels of physical stress, increase anaerobic threshold and reduce lactic acid.


A study done by South Dakota State University showed OptygenHP reduces cortisol levels (the primary stress hormone) by 26%. Chronically elevated cortisol levels can prevent an athlete from recovering, increase the risks of overtraining and suppress the immune system. 


A 2012 study done at Luther College showed endurance athletes who used OptygenHP increased time to lactate threshold by 42%. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects on highly trained distance runners of OptygenHP.

Though changes in performance variables (VO2 max, hemoglobin, serum ferritin and salivary cortisol) were similar between groups, time to onset of lactate threshold was nearly 42% greater in E=experimental vs C=control group.

Q: How is this new OptygenHP formula different than the current formula?

A: This new formula contains the adaptogenic herb ashwagandha.  Research shows ashwaganda improves VO2max, modulates cortisol and increases work output.    We have substituted 150mg of Rhodiola with 150mg of ashwagandha. The new formula delivers 150mg Rhodiola, 150mg ashwagandha, 800mg cordyceps, 200mcg chromium, 50mg ActiGin and our proprietary ATPro matrix.

Q:  How will this new & improved OptygenHP formula help me race better?

A:  This new & improved formula will dramatically improve your training and recovery.  It’s designed to help you through your most intense training and racing. Research has shown the following endurance benefits:

  • Increases Endurance and Performance
  • Reduced Lactic Acid
  • Increases oxygen utilization
  • Increase in VO2 Max
  • Increase in Time to Exhaustion
  • Increase Anaerobic threshold
  • Improved exercise capacity
  • Increase Maximal Oxygen uptake
  • 30% – 50% increase in Oxygen Utilization
  • Increase ratio of ATP by 45% – 55%
  • Enhanced Endurance
  • Increase in ATP production 

Q: How do I maximize the benefits of the new formula?

A:  For best results, use the OptygenHP during all your intense training and racing. This will allow you to train at a higher level by improving the body’s ability to adapt to physical stress, increasing anaerobic threshold and reducing lactic acid. These improvements will help you race at a higher level. For best results, you should use the new & improved OptygenHP consistently for many months. If you start taking it a week before a race, benefits will be minimal. 

Q: Should I take OptygenHP every day?

A: Yes, it’s important to take OptygenHP daily, even on days you are not training or racing.  If you don’t take it every day, you will not experience the full potential.

Q: How long will it take before I start noticing the benefits?

A: You should start experiencing the benefits of OptygenHP formula approximately six (6) days after you start taking it.

Q: When should I take OptygenHP?

A: It is best to take the new & improved OptygenHP formula every day with a meal.

Q: What is Beta-Alanine and how does it work?

A: Beta-Alanine is an amino acid that interacts directly with the amino acid carnosine to buffer lactic acid. With intense training, you can increase your carnosine levels with a limiting factor: the body cannot produce enough Beta-Alanine to allow the body to continue to increase carnosine levels. Clinical studies show that supplementing with Beta-Alanine allows the body to produce significantly higher carnosine levels. The result is a highly effective mechanism for the metabolism of lactate, which in-turn improves endurance capacity.

Q: What are the benefits of taking Beta-Alanine?

A: Cutting edge human clinical studies show Beta-Alanine supplementation:

  • Significantly improves muscular endurance.
  • Improves exercise capacity
  • Increases Total Work Done by 13%
  • Boosts strength

  • Increases endurance capacity
  • Enhances Ventilatory Threshold
  • Delays onset of neuromuscular fatigue
