What Does Essential Amino Energy + Electrolytes Do?
This product is designed to energise your training. The key electrolytes sodium, potassium, chloride and magnesium, when mixed with water, ensure that your energy levels and mood, which affect performance, are nutritionally supported. Dehydration is on the of the fastest ways to hit the brakes when it comes to exercise performance. Dehydration makes weight feel heavier and any final destination that much further away. Keeping hydrated, particularly in hot and humid conditions ensures that you make the most out of the time you commit to exercise.
The essential amino acids are important stimulators of muscle protein synthesis. This process is actually the laying down of new muscle tissue, or the replacement of old and worn muscle proteins. Free form essential amino acids are the most effective way to stimulate this process, and have been researched for decades now throughout the world, showing consistent reproducability of scientific results. The BCAA leucine is an important trigger of mTOR, while right of the EAAs (excluding tryptophan) are needed to generate follow-through, ensuring that the mTOR trigger leads to substantial muscle repair and lean growth.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard products contains key conditionally and non-essential amino acids, such as taurine, arginine and glutamine. When essential amino acid demands are high, supplying specific conditionally-essential and non-essential amino acids can support healthy metabolic activity and exercise performance. Arginine is required for the synthesis of nitric oxide, which helps to keep blood circulating to the peripheries, including muscle.
This amino acid may enhance the muscle pump sensation eagerly anticipted by so many bodybuilders during their sessions. Glutamine has been shown to boost glycogen accumulation post-workout, and assist with the generation of peak torque during training. Additionally, it may help to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness.
The caffeine found in this product is naturally occuring within Green Tea Leaf and Green Coffee Bean, which are also rich sources of antioxidants. Given that we generate more oxygen-based free-radicals during aerobic exercise, this can certainly be a helpful supplement. Furthermore, these two natural ingredients also deliver theanine and chlorogenic acids, respectively, which may assist with mental calm and thermogenesis, again with respect.
Optimum Nutrition Essential Amino Energy + Electrolytes is a superb way to power through your session with new-found energy. Try it pre-workout, intra-workout, during intense work-related activity, or any time of the day for a supreme boost. Make sure to give it a go on iced-water for a refreshing drink like nothing your palate has ever experiened!
