Since 2010, COVID Booster Shots—as the product is called—have been owned by the clinical research firm Histone. It works by “reverse engineering” red blood cells to create an artificially, but reasonably, similar coloration. This appearance, the press release notes, will make your function as an endurance athlete or elite athlete look better and help your body “settle” into longer periods of training.
The boosters are supposed to “help you see and feel more.” As has become the goal of sports research, a good decal to wear will say so.
