Why you should care about amino acids
Why is recovery so important?
Every time you exercise, you break down muscle. Your body utilizes amino acids, the basic building blocks for muscles, to rebuild muscles for future physical demands. When recovered, the muscle becomes stronger and more effective.
Amino acids and their benefits:
BCAA's or Branched Chain Amino Acids are considered the most important to fitness experts. They are the three key amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) in the production, maintenance and repair of muscle. They have a strong synergistic effect, which means they work best when used all together.
Beta-alanine has been shown to increase the amount of work you can perform at high intensities. Beta-alanine is also known for the "tingle" people sometimes feel.
Taurine functions as an antioxidant. Antioxidants protect the cells from damage caused by certain chemical reactions. Many scientists believe that taurine helps improve memory and mental function. One study found that a combination of taurine and caffeine had positive effects on mental performance and mood. Other studies have found that the combination might improve attention span and reasoning skills.
As for athletic performance, a study published by Japanese scientists found that after taking taurine for seven days, right before a workout, the subjects showed significant increases in VO2 max or the time until exhaustion sets in during strenuous exercise.
Glutamine is the most common amino acid in your muscles and it is the main carrier of nitrogen into your muscle cells. Glutamine plays a large part in protein production. Studies show that Glutamine can minimize the breakdown of muscle and improve muscle production. Glutamine also increases levels of Human Growth Hormone, which helps burn body fat and supports new muscle growth. Glutamine also helps the immune system and keeps you from being susceptible to illness as a result of strenuous activity.
Acetyl-L- Carnitine Arginate has been shown to increase energy and mental acuity. It has also been shown to aide in fat burning and to have anti-aging and neuro-protective qualities.
Arginine is known to have heart benefits. Some studies show that arginine helps improve blood flow in the arteries of the heart. This may reduce your risk of heart disease and increase cardiovascular capacity. It has also been shown to improve overall circulation.
Are you using Amino Acids for your workout?
Nanohydr8 provides energy, hydration and amino acids for its incredible recovery benefits.
Nanohydr8 is packed with many effective amino acids. It has BCAA’s, which include Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. It also has a full dose of Beta Alanine, Taurine, L-Glutamine, Acetyl-L- Carnitine Arginate, and L-Arginine. The amino acids in Nanohydr8 actually absorb during your workout and absorb more completely than any other form of amino acids.
So when we say Nanohydr8 improves recovery through fast and effective absorption of amino acids, we are really talking about quite an impressive list of benefits for all people and especially athletes!
