Our Chemists have taken branched chain amino acid (BCAA) supplementation to a new high! ENDURANCE, a 2-1-1 BCAA, includes additional ingredients Beta Alanine and Creatinol-O-Phosphate. This combination helps speed and target absorption into muscle tissue. Beta Alanine helps decrease the burning sensation of muscles during workouts and Creatinol-O-Phosphate supports contraction of the muscles when less oxygen is available in the muscles, providing an extra edge during high intensity workouts!
Why did we add Beta Alanine to a BCAA?
Exercise, especially high intensity exercise causes the pH in our muscles to drop causing a burning sensation. Beta Alanine acts as a buffer, so to speak, to help decrease the burning sensation therefore delaying fatigue.
Why we added Creatinol-O-Phosphate?
Helps support your muscles to work past the point where your body would normally want to shut down. Utilizes an extended number of muscle fibers during your workout, which promotes better muscle gains. Supports contraction of the muscles when there is less oxygen available in the muscle. This may help promote better performance.
ENDURANCE is one of the most complete sports supplements for all athletes because the ingredients provide an extra edge during high intensity workouts, reducing muscle soreness, supporting storage of energy in muscle and facilitates creation of energy for muscles to use. Along with the staples found in other BCAA formulations the additions of Beta Alanine and Creatinol-0 Phosphate make ENDURANCE one of the most complete BCAA powders on the market!
Ingredients in Endurance:
Vitamin B6 – This water-soluble vitamin changes fats and protein into energy and makes glycogen.* Glycogen is energy ready to be used stored inside the muscle and liver.
L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine are all essential amino acids which mean that the body cannot make them so you need to consume them in your diet.
N-Acetyl-Glutamine is not considered an essential amino acid but becomes useful for endurance athletes.* This amino acid supports the immune system, and increases creation of glycogen.
Citrulline Malate is an amino acid that enhances athletic anaerobic performance and helps reduce muscle soreness. (Pere-guisado J. 2010)
Beta Alanine increases muscle carnosine which help reduce muscle acids decreasing the burning sensation therefore delaying fatigue.(Hoffman J, 2008)
Creatinol-O-Phosphate increases contraction of the muscles when there is less oxygen available in the muscle. This may help support better sprints or better intervals.
