EAAs and BCAAs are essential for health, performance and recovery: they are the building blocks for a functioning body and adequate amounts are essential to be healthy and ensure optimal recovery and performance.
Supplementation of EAAs and BCAAs help to enhance recovery and performance: adequate levels of amino acid, inclusive of BCAA, especially leucine, is critical in the muscle protein synthesis pathway and therefore necessary components of muscle repair, regeneration and muscle mass building.
BCAAs & EAAs have been linked with preventing central fatigue, reducing muscle breakdown, reducing muscle soreness, promoting muscle protein synthesis, improving physical performance, supporting cellular energy production and enhancing muscle tissue repair.
P5P is the active form of vitamin B6. Most other brands will use pyridoxine; however, the body has to covert this inactive form of vitamin B6 into P5P in the liver first before it can be utilised.
The inclusion of B6 when supplementing with amino acids is crucial, as amino acid supplementation can lead to a depletion in vitamin B6.
Vitamin B6 also plays a role in energy production, supporting healthy brain function, reducing inflammation, supporting the production of haemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen around the body, as well as increasing magnesium absorption.
Citrulline is the precursor for the amino acid arginine, which plays an important role in the production of nitric oxide (NO). NO is known for its role in the contraction and relaxation of blood vessels and blood flow.
Citrulline malate has been shown to improve muscular endurance, helping to prevent fatigue during resistance and aerobic training. Studies have also demonstrated its ability to help improve recovery, reduce muscle soreness after exercise and enhance the effects of Branch Chain Amino Acids.
HMB, the abbreviation for beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate is generated when the amino acid leucine is broken down. HMB appears to play a role in the activation of muscle protein synthesis.
In doing so, it has been linked with increased muscle gains, improved performance, reduced muscle breakdown and improved fat mass reduction.
ALC is a form of carnitine that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, promoting the synthesis of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is crucial for the effective communication between nerve cells and promotes cognitive function, memory and motivation.
Studies have shown ALC to be effective in supporting both mental and physical performance as well as promoting fat metabolism, increasing power performance and enhancing recovery from exercise.
Ginseng comprises two active substances: ginsenoside and gintonin, understood to be the yin and yang of the ginseng. Ginseng is also an adaptogenic agent, a nontoxic plant substance that effectively regulates and supports the stress response.
Not only can ginseng mitigate the impacts of stress on the body, it has also been linked with improved physical performance, such as improving V02 Max and muscular strength during resistance training. It also helps to fight against fatigue, supports the immune system and improves exercise recovery.
Rhodiola is another adaptogenic herb that has been shown to enhance athletic performance by supporting the stress response, helping to reduce mental fatigue and enhance cognitive function.
Research has pointed towards its ability to reduce perceived levels of exertion, improve endurance exercise performance, support immune function & reduce anxiety.
The combination has been shown to aid athletic performance, in particular for high intensity exercise. It helps to maintain electrolyte balance, supporting hydration and preventing cramping/fatigue.
Performance benefits include reduced fatigue, enhanced resistance exercise performance and lower perceived levels of exertion.
It also appears to improve the effectiveness of beta alanine.
Beta alanine is a modified version of the amino acid alanine and a precursor to carnosine. Carnosine is found in muscle, predominantly fast twitch muscle fibres. It helps to buffer lactic acid build up and is involved in the contractility if muscle fibres.
Beta alanine supplementation has been shown to enhance high intensity exercise and muscular endurance, and is particularly useful for those engaging in high intensity interval training type activities.
Over 50% of the general population is deficient in magnesium and this increases with the athletic population. In fact, behind vitamin D a magnesium deficiency is the most common deficiency in athletes.
Magnesium is required for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the human body, and is pivotal in so many things from energy production to protein synthesis. Magnesium has been shown to promote recovery through the management of inflammation and oxidative stress, as well as improving sleep quality via improvements in the levels of the neurotransmitter GABA. Magnesium can also play a significant role in electrolyte balance and the prevention of muscle cramps.
Magnesium malate combines magnesium with malic acid, a substance found naturally in fruits. Magnesium malate has superior absorption compared to many other magnesium chelates, and appears to help support energy production specifically as magnesium can support harnessing energy from carbohydrates, and malic acid is involved in the generation of ATP (energy) within our cells.
