RESILIENCE- “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties and adapting well in the face of adversity”
Ensure that your workout is fuelled properly, so that your performance is maximised from beginning to end……
Cyclic Dextrin- is a carbohydrate source that is produced through the breakdown of starch and a unique enzyme is used to form clusters of sugar molecules. Further branching enzymes are then used to form the Cyclic Dextrin into longer chains, which have a high molecular weight and low osmolarity which speeds up gastric emptying. This means less time in your stomach and reduced discomfort when ingested during exercise (sloshing around in the stomach). Furthermore, the increased rate of gastric emptying will mean it reaches the small intestine faster, enabling absorption into the bloodstream to begin. Another bonus of HBCD is that it provides a sustained release of energy, unlike traditional carbohydrate sources such as dextrose which cause a sudden spike in blood sugar and a large insulin response. HBCD is absorbed more gradually and ensures that there is a continued uptake into the bloodstream, this can help to keep you training harder for longer.
L-Glutamine – Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid which are the building blocks of protein in the body. Direct supplementation of L-glutamine is recommended in order to correct any deficiency, especially in times of significant stress caused by intense levels of exercise.
Creatine – Creatine is thought to improve strength, increase lean muscle mass, and help the muscles recover more quickly during exercise. This muscular boost may help athletes achieve bursts of speed and energy, especially during short bouts of high-intensity activities such as weight lifting or sprinting.
Essential Amino Acids – Amino acids are compounds that play many critical roles in your body. They’re needed for vital processes like the building of proteins and synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters. Unlike non-essential amino acids, essential amino acids can’t be made by your body and must be obtained through your diet. These are Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, L-Lysine, L-Threonine, L-Phenylalanine, L-Hidistine, L-Methionine, L-Tryptophan.
Pink Himalayan Salt – retains all the essential minerals that are lost through the purification of common table salt. Supplementing will help replace electrolytes lost through sweating thus keeping the muscles hydrated and performing optimally.
Potassium Chloride – is involved in the electrical signals sent by muscles to allow them to contract properly. When potassium levels get low, you can get muscle weakness and cramps.
