- Product Overview
An innovative PWO product that contains BRANCHED-chain amino acids (BCAA), beta-alanine, arginine, lysine, betaine, and piperine, and has to be ingested before training. BCAA accounts for ca 35% of the essential amino acids occurring in muscle proteins. BCAA is vital for protein synthesis, has anti-catabolic effect, muscle recovery after intensive training, and muscle strength. Beta-alanine increases the production of carnosine which neutralises lactic acid accumulation, which in turn delays muscle fatigue and thus allows for more intensive training.
Arginine is involved in the synthesis of muscle proteins (it promotes muscle growth) and improves blood flow by increasing the production of nitric oxide (NO); combined with lysine it stimulates the production of growth hormone, increases the absorption of calcium, optimises nitrogen storages in the body, and improves the recovery time.
Betaine has shown to be very effective in increasing NO (nitric oxide), which in turn improves performance capacity and fat-free muscle mass. Betaine reduces the levels of homocycteine thiolactone which can compromise protein synthesis. Piperine is an alkaloid that occurs in black pepper, which speeds up the process of digesting all nutrients such as amino acids and food, can block the generating of new fat cells, and reduce the level of fat in the blood.
