Endurance exercise requires great amounts of fuel.
Through our Nutritional Rebalancing program, we offer athletes exceptional supplementation to support blood flow, increase nutrient delivery, oxygen levels, and removal of waste products in the body. Our system works by providing vegetable sourced nitrates that support nitric oxide production, critical for blood flow. The three main actives in our supplementation include Nitrosigine®, Citrulline, and Creatine. This combination increases power in your work outs while offsetting fatigue.
Nitrosigine® is a unique, patented complex containing the amino acid arginine bonded to silicon, the precursor to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide increases blood flow, which helps improve oxygen and nutrient delivery to muscles. For endurance athletes like runners, that means getting more oxygen and fuel to the working tissues while removing waste products all at a much higher rate.
Citrulline is a naturally occurring amino acid that enhances blood flow. Citrulline is shown to improve exercise performance and stimulate muscle synthesis by activating muscle-building pathways. Citrulline has also been noted to reduce fatigue by aiding in creatine resynthesis and enhancing the use of branched-chain amino acids during exercise.
Creatine has the ability to improve the quality of training and stimulate better gains in training adaptation, like increasing lactate threshold. Creatine can also improve recovery following extensive endurance training by limiting muscle damage. Finally, especially for endurance athletes, Creatine can also help increase energy (glycogen) storage in working muscles.
Just as vital as pre-workout, mid work-out nutrition will keep energy levels stable to prevent dips in performance. Athletes burn quickly through stored carbs in the muscle and sugar in the bloodstream. Eventually fuel stores run low, hindering performance. Replenishment midway is vital for a successful workout. Our mid workout supplementation is a puree of wholesome carbs from apple, agave, and molasses to support athletes during endurance events. It supplies immediate energy during workouts, protects muscles, reduces fatigue, and promotes faster muscle recovery. Studies also suggest that consuming a small dose of branched-chain amino acids during extended workouts makes additional protein synthesis available to the body, which helps offset protein loss. Supplementation during training can also speed up recovery and suppress muscle damage and soreness. By supplying the body with 22 grams of carbohydrates in an optimal glucose-fructose ratio along with branched-chain amino acids, our mid work out puree provides the right nutrition for energy replenishment and enhanced performance.
Just as important as pre and mid workout supplementation, post work out nutrition is an absolute necessity. Intense exercise affects muscles by depleting fuel stores like fat and carbohydrates. Waste products from metabolism increase and must be removed. Muscle tissue needs to be rebuilt. Consuming carbohydrates and healthy fats will help restore fuel supplies for greater exercise potential while protein helps repair damaged tissue back to previous levels. Our post-workout nutrition is designed to help trigger muscle synthesis with branched-chain amino acids, L-carnitine, and other supporting amino acids. These active ingredients trigger cellular mechanisms to rebuild proteins in muscle. Branched-chain amino acids are present in the muscles at high levels and consist of three important amino acids: L-leucine (stimulates muscle protein synthesis and stops muscle breakdown), L-isoleucine (helps the body absorb carbohydrates into cells), and L-valine (used as a readily available source of energy).
