L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine and L-Glutamine.
Sodium bicarbonate is especially helpful for high-intensity exercise that lasts between 1 and 7 minutes and involves large muscle groups… Some examples of this type of training include forms of running/sprinting, cycling, rowing, swimming, weightlifting and CrossFit…yes even CrossFit!!!!
Interval training is when a person alternates between intense and less-intense exercise during a single session.
Additionally, most improvements seem to take place near the end of a workout. For example, a recent study observed a 1.5-second performance improvement in the last 1,000 meters of a 2,000-meter (1.24-mile) rowing event
Studies that looked at this type of exercise found that sodium bicarbonate helped prevent decreases in performance.
This generally led to overall improvements of 1.7–8%
Finally, the ability of sodium bicarbonate to help you push through the final stages of your workout may also improve your workout results.
MAY Improve Exercise Performance
Fat Loss ,As if you didn’t need another reason why a 2:1:1 BCAA ratio is the best. This is where the amino acid isoleucine comes in. Isoleucine appears to play a major role in providing BCAA supplements their fat-burning benefits.
Taking glutamine during any workout helps with the absorption of the BCAA's and the uptake of Creatine too!
Creatine is used to boost athletic performance, we all know this. This is why we’ve added 5g of the wonder stuff to every serving.
It’s one of the world’s most popular and effective supplements for building muscle and strength.
What does alanine do for your body? What is the alanine function? Why did we add Alanine…
Playing a role in converting sugar (glucose) into energy — it is involved in the glucose-alanine cycle, which takes place between tissues and the liver sounds real technical….but basically it aids with
Processing B vitamins, Breaking down tryptophan and vitamin B6, Helping with acid metabolism
Increasing immunity, Facilitating the metabolism of tryptophan, Forming carnosine, anserine and of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), Providing the brain and central nervous system with energy
Helping build and repair muscle tissue, Helping the liver to detoxify the blood, Protecting cells from oxidative damage, Helping maintain normal cholesterol levels
Would just have been rude not to include this…
Citrulline is an amino acid. It is considered nonessential, meaning that your body can naturally produce some on its own. Citrulline has important roles in the body, but unlike some amino acids, it is not used to build proteins Citrulline can also help widen your blood vessels and may play a role in muscle building
One way it works is by increasing vasodilation. Vaso what…
Vasodilation refers to the widening of arteries or veins. It’s associated with lower blood pressure and increased blood flow.
After citrulline is consumed, some is converted to another amino acid called arginine. Arginine is converted into a molecule called nitric oxide, which causes vasodilation of blood vessels by relaxing the smooth muscle cells that constrict them.
Basically Citrulline MAY increase blood flow by increasing nitric oxide production. It MAY also produce positive effects on muscle by stimulating protein synthesis and decreasing amino acid breakdown.
Betalains, commonly used as food colouring are the water-soluble pigments that give beets their vivid red colour. Betalains have a wide range of biological activities with potential health benefits. They counter inflammation, protect the liver, and have anticancer and antioxidant activity.
One of the first studies to look into betaine's performance-supporting effects found that weight-trained athletes taking 1.25 grams of betaine twice per day increased their muscle strength by 25 percent, and their muscle power by 20 percent. They also determined that betaine significantly increased markers for muscle protein synthesis following a workout.
Recent research has found that betaine supplementation helped resistance trainers complete more total reps during their workouts and cyclists could pedal with more power during cycling workouts. It has also been suggested to significantly lower levels of lactate, which can delay muscular fatigue and allow athletes to train harder, for longer.
And finally, betaine supplementation has also been suggested to raise levels of S-adenosylmethionine, also known as SAMe. (doesn’t matter if you abbreviate it…still have no idea what it means). Having healthy levels of SAMe (take your word for it) may support positive mood, promote liver health, and aid joint recovery.
Pine Bark Extract
Pine bark extract makes a great addition to your supplement regime. Known for its potent antioxidant support, as well as its added support for blood flow, blood sugar, inflammation, immunity, brain function and skin support.
During physical activity, you need additional fluids to replace the water lost in sweat. Did you know that a water loss of as little as 1–2% of your body weight can lead to decreased strength, speed and focus!!
Sweat contains electrolytes such as sodium, small amounts of potassium, calcium and magnesium.
Electrolytes have been added to help replenish water, electrolytes and energy lost during exercise.
