How do its active ingredients work?
Branched chain animo acids
Physical activity increases the protein requirements of the animal due to an increase in the synthesis of structural and functional proteins, as well as an increase in tissue catabolism. The branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) are “essential” and therefore must be replaced through food. Branched-chain amino acid supplementation decreases exercise-induced protein degradation and reduces the release of muscle enzymes (indicators of muscle damage). In this way, the supplementation of branched chain amino acids during intense training helps increase muscle mass.
The administration of glucose after physical exercise promotes the replacement of muscle glycogen.
The production of free radicals has a positive relationship with the oxygen consumption associated with exercise. Vitamin E is one of the most effective antioxidants to protect the polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are main constituents of cell membranes. Vitamin E prevents the oxidation of lipids by eliminating peroxyl radicals before they can react with acids or proteins of adjacent cell membranes.
It is the most powerful reducing agent available for cells. Vitamin C regenerates the enzyme glutathione, neutralizes free radicals both intracellular and extracellular, and protects against free radical-mediated protein inactivation. On the other hand, vitamin C requirements increase during exercise due to its role with L-Carnitine.
It acts as a cofactor for glutathione peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme that protects tissues against oxidative stress. It catalizes the reduction of hydrogen peroxides and organic hydroperoxides and by regenerates vitamin E.
Vitamin B3, B5, B6 and B12
High physical activity increases the requirements of all the group B vitamins. Many of them act as cofactors in key enzymes of the energy-generating pathways, as well as in the process of synthesis and tissue repair caused by exercise. Furthermore, physical work accelerates the excretion of water-soluble vitamins, such as group B vitamins, due to increased total body water turnover.
