BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) are known as the building blacks of muscle tissue, they support everything from anabolic muscle building to high-intensity endurance training to improving mental function and mood. They are among the nine essential amino acids that the body is unable to make, meaning they must be ingested through food or supplements.
As their name suggests, BCAAs have a branched side chain that simplifies the job of converting each amino acid into energy during intense exertion. The more BCAAs that are present in the muscles, the more they will be used for energy, slowing the breakdown of muscles cells and preventing catabolism. At the most basic level, BCAAs trigger protein synthesis, increase energy expenditure and have been shown to improve glucose tolerance. What’s exciting about this is that BCAAs work even when you aren’t working out, meaning that if you have to take time off, BCAAs will help minimize fat gain and muscle loss from inactivity. Equally, on days when you don’t exercise, BCAAs are just as important as during and post-workout.
The top used exercise recovery and immune boosting supplement for the last decade.
L-Glutamine is one of the most valuable recovery amino acids to supplement with. L-Glutamine stores are largely depleted due to extreme exercise so it is often supplemented in the diet when partaking in intensive training or physical exercise. The body is capable of manufacturing L-Glutamine on its own, but in most cases can never manufacture enough to fill the daily needs of someone training with great intensity.
If you're working hard in the gym each day, there's no question that you'll want to be taking care of your body during training. Each time you lift weight, a large amount of stress is placed on the body. Unless something is done to help your body recover during training, fatigue will always be there to ruin your training.
Additionally, longer recovery time means longer time to reach your goals. The body can lose up to 50% of its glutamine levels during training, and if your immune system or other parts of your body become glutamine-deficient, the muscles' glutamine stores are first to be robbed, creating the risk for catabolism. Help your body progress, not go backwards.
Often overlooked as a simple amino acid, Glutamine is one of the best anti-catabolic ingredients around, so start sending in those reinforcements and supporting your body's battle in the gym or the training field.
Involved in the metabolism of fat to be used as fuel, promoting optimal ATP levels in the body useful for energy and physical performance. The difference between Acetyl L-Carnitine and regular L-Carnitine is Acetyl L-Carnitine additionally has neurotransmitter benefits that improves brain function and focus.
Boost Your Body and Brain
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is a metabolite that occurs naturally in the brain, liver, and kidney, and is a dietary supplement that can be found in many animal products.
It is also produced during high-intensity exercise, and Acetyl L-Carnitine's role in the synthesis of acetylcholine is important for the central nervous system.
Though Acetyl L-Carnitine is not considered an essential nutrient, the body's production of this acetyl ester version of L-Carnitine can decrease with age, making it a great supplement to use in your fitness protocol.
Fire-Up Your Focus
INTENSE CONCENTRATION = INTENSE WORKOUTS
Acetyl L-Carnitine is involved in the metabolism of fatty acids, and by promoting optimal ATP levels in the body it can be useful for energy and physical performance.
Acetyl L-Carnitine's connection to acetylcholine synthesis means it can also be used for neurotransmitter benefits, such as promoting a healthy mood and memory.
By being involved in protein synthesis and nutrient partitioning, ALC may also be good for promoting anabolism and fighting catabolism.
Acetyl L-Carnitine is stabilised pure Acetyl L-Carnitine HCL further flavoured with a nature identical lemon flavouring. This makes it an ideal formula for mixing in water as a standalone drink or adding to other fruit flavoured sports drinks as desired.
Acetyl L Carnitine HCL is of the highest quality and is processed in a humidity free manufacturing arena so moisture is not present at the time of packaging. This assures that a free form flowing powder is achieved, contrary to many low budget formulas that are prone to lumping and solidifying in their packaging.
