Elivar is delighted to be supporting a World Record attempt by six international swimmers – average age 42. The swimmers will be undertaking a punishing swim across the English Channel to try to beat the existing World Record relay time. The team are seeking to beat the current record of 6 hours and 52 minutes set by the US National Swim Team way back in 1990!
Weather and Tide will determine the exact date of the record attempt but as things currently stand the 5th/6th of August looks like the optimal tidal conditions.
The ‘EC6’ – as they are fondly known – is comprised of:
* Andrew Chamberlain, aged 41 and holder of European age records including gold at the 2013 European Masters Championships for the 400 and 800 free
* Dave Warren, 42, from the UK, who holds 20 world, British and European titles
* Christof Wandratch, aged 47, from Germany and the 3rd fastest English Channel swimmer ever
* Kirsten Cameron, 40, is from New Zealand. Kirsten is the fastest 1500 metre swimmer in her age group in the world
* Steve West, 42, was a member of the USA Swimming National Team during the 1990’s
* Bernie Zeruhn, 43 an All American Masters swimmer

Did you know that Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN), the star ingredient in numerous anti-aging supplements, also moonlights in several foods you might already enjoy? It's true! NMN is a vital precursor to NAD+, a molecule crucial to many biological processes, like cell growth, DNA repair, and metabolism. But as we age, NAD+ levels take a hit, and bolstering them through NMN intake can be beneficial. Now the question arises, can we simply count on our daily meals for our NMN fix?
