SPECIFIC CHARACTERISTICS of the Pro isotonic gel
Below is an explanation of the ingredients in the Pro Formula (BCAA, L-Arginine, L-Citruline, Raspberry kentones and Caffeine. For more questions please feel free to contact us.
The abbreviation BCAA stands for Branche Chain Amino Acids, or branched chain amino acids. They consist of the three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. These three amino acids make up one-third of the essential amino acids and about 70 percent of total muscle protein.
BCAAs are used by your body for recovery activities. In addition, BCAAs are used when glycogen stores are depleted following heavy exercise.
It has been scientifically proven that adding BCAAs can improve performance during longer efforts. In addition, the amino acids help to prevent muscle degradation and promote muscle recovery and growth.
L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid. Arginine is involved in many metabolic processes and is important in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and high blood pressure. Arginine improves blood flow, strengthens the immune system and positively influences a man's libido. Studies suggest that arginine accelerates wound healing, improves fat burning.
L-Arginine is an amino acid that accelerates the elimination of ammonia in the body. Give athletes a few grams before training, and they will tire less quickly. When the muscles are under heavy strain during intensive training, they break down part of their protein and convert it into energy. A degradation product released in the process is ammonia. A smart protein diet or BCAAs can protect the muscle mass against this breakdown, but they cannot prevent the increase of ammonia levels in the blood. A high concentration of ammonia makes you tired. Supplementation with L-Arginine reduces fatigue.
A second benefit of L-Arginine is that in the body it is converted by the enzyme NO synthase into nitric oxide (in English, nitrogen oxide, or NO for short), a signaling substance that makes blood vessels wider. Because blood vessels that are wider carry more oxygen and fuel to active muscles, L-Arginine can improve performance.
L-Citrulline improves intestinal function during exercise. During intensive exercise, intestinal function, and therefore the absorption of amino acids and carbohydrates, is reduced L-Citrulline, an amino acid created by oxidation of L-arginine can improve the function of the small intestine during exercise. During exercise, the capillaries in the intestines constrict because the body prioritizes the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles. L-Citrulline converts to L-arginine in the intestinal cells, and enzymes in the blood vessels of the intestinal cells can use L-arginine to produce nitric oxide [NO].
Nitric oxide makes blood vessels dilate, and improves the supply of oxygen to the intestinal cells. It also increases the transport of nutrients from the intestines to the body. L-citrulline is also contained in our Endurance Booster sports drink.
Raspberry Ketones; Ketones really came to prominence when it was reported that Team Sky used them to enhance their performance. Ketones are the end part when fat is used as fuel in the body, so it starts off as a fat cell and at the last moment before it is absorbed as energy the fat cell is transformed into a ketone. By adding ketones yourself, this process is also improved in the other fat cells.
Once ketones are formed from the fat cells they can be used as energy. So instead of using carbohydrates, this way you use the ketones which allows you to keep your carbohydrate supply.
Caffeine; a well known stimulant.
