Muscles require oxygen from blood for fuel. Red blood cells serve as the oxygen-carrying cells in the blood. A higher red blood cell count ⁼ more oxygen in the blood ⁼ more muscle energy. Elevated muscle energy helps you perform harder, faster and longer during endurance and sporting events. Red blood cells and haemoglobin stay on normal levels under the influence of Humate; literature has indicated that the red blood cells have the capability of carrying higher percentages of oxygen when in the presence of Humate.  Humates have been shown to the collagen fibres to aid in repair of damaged tendons and bone. Tendon strength has been shown to increase by as much as 75%.
