Scitec Nutrition have also added Folic acid into this product which functions in enhancing immune, blood formation and psychological function.
Beta alanine: Is known as a non-essential amino acid which is converted inside the body into a natural chemical compound known as carnosine. Carnosine has an important role in normal functioning of the body including the adequate functioning and development of the muscles, heart and many other organs. Carnosine increases physical endurance by providing electrical nerve signals to the required muscle groups. The fundamental role of beta alanine once conversion has occurred is to provide a barrier and reduce the accumulation of acidic residue during a workout. This assists in the reduction of lactic acid accumulation which contributes to a reduction in muscle fatigue. Beta alanine is the compound that causes the tingling sensation experienced after consuming a pre-workout.
Creatine HCI: Is an organic, water soluble substance that forms the important building blocks of muscle and has an important role in supplying energy to muscle cells during high intensity activity. It is used as an energy source by the skeletal muscle which is one of the important building blocks of muscle. Creatine is naturally produced by the body and is found in small quantities in animal products. The body stores creatine until it is required to create ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) which is the substance used to manufacture energy. Creatine is often utilized during a high intensity exercise to enhance physical performance and increase muscle protein synthesis. Creatine doesn’t cause an increase in muscle fiber however, it does increase the water content of muscles making them appear larger. Over time, creatine can cause real fat free mass because of its strength building properties.
L- Carnitine: Is an amino acid that is naturally produced inside the body which converts triglycerides into mitochondria which are oxidized to produce energy where in return burns body fat. The body can convert L-carnitine into other amino acids known as Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Propionyl-L-Carnitine. Carnitine also boosts recovery where the majority of carnitine pools inside the skeletal muscles. L-carnitine supplementation is implemented to increase levels in those whose natural levels of carnitine are low. Natural L-carnitine levels may be low because of a genetic disorder, certain medications, medical procedures, strict vegetarian diets and dieters. L-carnitine is beneficial in conditions relating to the cardiovascular system including congestive heart failure, high cholesterol, myocardial infarctions and chest pain.
Rhodiola Rosea: The effects of both Schisandra Chinensis and Withania Somnifera are enhanced in combination with Rhodiola Rosea. Rhodiola Rosea provides effects on neurotransmission including serotonin, dopamine and adrenaline. This herb is an effective anti-catabolic which protects against muscle/protein breakdown and offers anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties.
Arginine: Is an essential amino acid that regulates many metabolic functions where it serves as a precursor for the synthesis of protein and creatine. It is also the compound in the body that makes nitric oxide. Nitric oxide promotes the perpetual pump and extends the time frame of vasodilation. It also increases insulin secretion and is converted to urea in the liver by arginase.
Caffeine: Is found naturally in tea, coffee and chocolate where it also comes in supplement form. Caffeine enhances mental alertness, reduces drowsiness and improves coordination.
Maltodextrin: Is a polysaccharide which is utilised as a food additive and is produced from starch by hydrolysis. Maltodextrin consists of glucose units which are linked glycosidic bonds and is typically a mixture of 3 – 17 glucose chains. It is a more complex molecule and harder to digest than dextrose which takes a little longer to be absorbed. It has the ability to generate a desirable insulin peak which accompaniments that produced by dextrose.
Arginine Alphaketoglutarate: Is a salt of the amino acid arginine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid. The function in the metabolism of nitric oxide and promotes enhanced muscle protein synthesis.
- Reduced fatigue
- Enhanced immunity
- Increased energy
- Enhanced muscle strength
