In a true ‘acid test’ for CurraNZ, we were proud to be part of two Guinness World Records involving some serious feats of human endurance.
Staffordshire’s Andy Stone (right) kicked it off by completing 70 consecutive Half Ironman triathlons in just over 70 days on Friday, June 17.
The relative newcomer to triathlon was recommended CurraNZ by LJMU nutritionist, Dr Juliette Strauss, when fatigue and recovery became a problem almost halfway through his 5,000-mile challenge.
With its endurance, fat oxidation and muscle recovery benefits, CurraNZ fit the bill for Andy’s daily 70.3-mile slog.
According to Andy, by day 33 of the challenge, "I’d had a week of feeling quite tired up to that point and was actually wondering if I could complete the challenge on 70 x 70.3M triathlons in 70 days.
"I started taking CurraNZ on day 33 and I immediately saw a benefit. I felt lighter on my feet and I found the fog cleared in my head, it felt like I had much better mental clarity. That first day I achieved a PB in my daily swim and ride time and probably would have gone on to have a PB in the run if I hadn’t been joined by a supporter that day.
12 Londoners set new record for longest continual workout over 40 hours - the 'Longest Day'
Fast-forward to June 22, and a team of 12 from Manor Gym in London set a new record for the longest continual workout of 40 hours - 'The Longest Day, 2022'.
Mimi Gardner (left), fresh from a bronze medal at the Hyrox World Championships in May, was one of the 12-person team who used CurraNZ throughout.
She reported afterward: “It was a blast and I had endless energy. We all did. We did amazingly well and I am feeling physically really well.
“The team have loved using CurraNZ, which has been crucial in helping our endurance, reduce fatigue and of course, recovery to battle through.
