By boosting carnosine concentrations with beta-alanine, our muscle fibers can soak up more H+ and stay in an optimal pH range, leading to increased maximal strength and endurance through your workout. Note: why not just supplement with carnosine, rather than carnosine-enhancing B-Alanine?
When you ingest carnosine directly, most of it is broken down in the gastrointestinal tract. In a very short time, all the carnosine you ingested is either eliminated or broken down into its beta-alanine and histidine, where they are then taken into the muscle and converted back into carnosine. Unfortunately only about 40% of the carnosine you take actually contains beta-alanine, making it an inefficient source at best.
L-GLUTAMINE: A vital amino acid that is required by every muscle in the body, and is one of the most important building blocks in forming the proteins that maintain cellular health and tissue repair. It’s many uses include post-surgery recovery, brain function, muscle cramping, ADD, digestive disorders such as Crohns and ulcers, and much more. It’s of tremendous importance to bodybuilders who regularly train intensely. Since muscle isn’t the only tissue that needs this amino acid, strenuous exercise causes muscles to take it from other areas that need it. Some studies show that heavy training depletes the glutamine levels of athletes by up to 50%. Unless it’s replaced, this puts not only their muscle tissue in jeopardy, but also can compromise their immune systems and tax other organs. L-Glutamine also promotes growth hormone levels, so important to those working to get big. Additionally, it helps muscle cells to retain water which in turn increases their size. Since it also helps preserve muscles during the catabolic state, taking L-Glutamine supplement improves the quality of the workout by cutting down on fatigue. Consuming L-Glutamine can help boost your immune system and maintain muscle mass, which translates into more effective training and improved performance. Taken immediately after intense training helps to reduce the catabolic effect of muscle breakdown.
What does it all mean for you? It means that taking AminoPulse 45 minutes before your intense workout will halt the naturally occurring decline in strength, power and muscle endurance during that workout – thus prolonging your muscles’ ability to forcibly contract and maintain overload, which ultimately means GREATER GAINS. Taking your AminoPulse within 15 minutes after your workout will help reduce the catabolic effect of muscle breakdown, which once again, leads to GREATER GAINS. Lastly, taking your BCAAs at bedtime will ensure an adequate supply throught the night as your body is repairing and building muscle tissue during deep sleep.
You’re putting the time in the gym, you’re working your butts off (or building them!), you’re fueling your body as best you can… Don’t forget to top your efforts with safe, effective, and banned-substance free AminoPulse for greater gains.
