2ND WIND® Improves Lactate Clearance* 
2ND WIND is great for improving stamina, performance and muscle recovery.*

Studies showed 2ND WIND's unique combination of ingredients helps to clear lactic acid from the bloodstream faster and circulate it to the rest of the body. This allows the lactic acid to be used as an additional fuel source for exercise and other energy demands, improving your performance and reducing muscle recovery time.*  These benefits have been shown in several placebo controlled studies, summaries of which can be found under the research tab below.

Suggested use: Adults take 2 capsules per day. Optimal results have been shown within 2 weeks of continued use. Take an additional 2 capsules after heavy exercise or competition for improved recovery.*

Shipping: Shipping is always free via USPS within the continental US.



To test the effectiveness of our formula we put 2ND WIND to the test in human research studies, and in real life, with real athletes.

2ND WIND is rooted in the belief that increasing performance is best achieved by unblocking the bottlenecks that impede energy, rather than simply trying to boost energy. The key to 2ND WIND’s effectiveness is its ability to increase microcirculation to the muscles, specifically blood and lymph circulation, which helps redistribute the waste products of metabolism, like lactic acid, and allows the body to tap into this premier fuel source.* This has been tested and substantiated in several clinical trials. Clinical Trials 2ND WIND has been the subject of two human clinical studies showing its effectiveness in improving lactic acid clearance and muscle recovery:

Human Clinical – Running 1 In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, researchers compared the effects of either 500 mg or 1 gram (1000 mg) of 2ND WIND versus placebo on the clearance of lactic acid. After 2 weeks, test subjects exercised on a treadmill until exhausted. lactic acid levels were measured immediately after exercise and 15 minutes later to calculate the rate of lactic acid clearance. The high dose group continued taking 2ND WIND for another two weeks, and the treadmill test was repeated. After 2 weeks, those taking 1 gram of 2ND WIND showed significant improvements in lactic acid clearance compared to both the 500 mg group (50% higher clearance) and the placebo group (157% higher). Subjects taking 2ND WIND experienced an 80% increase in lactic acid clearance after 2 weeks, and a 110% increase after 4 weeks. They also showed improved heart rate recovery after 4 weeks.*

Human Clinical – Cycling 2 In this double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, subjects were given 1,350 mg of 2ND WIND (or placebo) and performed an exercise test, followed by the measuring of lactic acid levels at 3 minute intervals post-exercise for a total of 12 minutes. Compared to placebo, those taking 2ND WIND accumulated significantly lower levels of lactic acid over the recovery period. At the end of 12 minutes, the 2ND WIND group’s lactic acid levels were 7% less than baseline values while the placebo group’s levels increased by 23% over baseline.*

Q: What are the benefits of taking 2ND WIND, and how long will it be until I see them?
A: 2ND WIND is designed to help with endurance and stamina during workouts, as well as recovery post workout by helping clear lactic acid from the muscles. Many consumers report decreased muscle soreness post workout. These results are typically seen after 2-4 weeks of continued use.*

Q: How will 2ND WIND help me race better?
A: Most importantly, 2ND WIND allows you to train harder than what you’re accustomed to by providing a unique and precise synergistic combination of ingredients that help to clear lactate from the bloodstream faster, and circulate it to the rest of the body. This allows the lactate to be used as an additional fuel source for exercise and other energy demands, improving your performance and reducing muscle recovery time.*

Because you recover so much faster, you feel incredible during training, not tired and crampy. This allows you to train harder and better, giving you the edge to win and beat your own best record.*

Q: Does 2ND WIND contain any banned substances?
A: 2ND WIND has been tested for banned substances by two independent laboratories and has been found to contain no banned substances. None of the ingredients in 2ND WIND are on any banned substances list that we know of. For complete regulations, and a list of currently banned substances please see the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) or the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) websites.

Q: How many capsules should I take?
A: Take 2 caps daily to optimize your endurance and recovery times. For intense workout or competition, an additional serving can be taken to aid in better recovery.*

Q: How long will 1 bottle of this product last me?
A: When taken at 2 capsules per day, one bottle will last 30 days.
