When training you are beating your body up so it will adapt and become stronger. However during this process the body starts to break down especially if a recovery plan is not in place therefore I get a lot of questions asking about my personal recovery plan, and of course in short my plan consist of a well-planned diet , exercise program and a great supplement to aid with recovery. In this blog I will discuss the best Supplements For Recovery:
Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's) and Glutamine: These are three of the amino acids that are found in normal protein structures, however in this form they are considered to be unbound. This increases the rate of absorption of amino acids, and allows the amino acids to be shuttled into the blood plasma. By taking the BCAA's in particular, muscle catabolism (the breakdown of muscle) can be prevented quickly, especially for usage in high-volume cardio work.
Beta-Alanine: You can get beta-alanine from foods that contain carnosine, however most likely you will not get enough, that’s why a lot of athlete use beta alanine supplement. the recommended dose is 3–5 grams daily. Although it causes tingling in the skin, beta-alanine is considered to be a safe and effective supplement to boost exercise performance and great recovery.
Citrulline Malate: Citrulline also works in recovery by enhancing the production of Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP). Directly after working out when supplies are low, citrulline helps to bring those levels back to normal levels.
Why using Syntrax Recovery Stack? Basically by using syntrax SuperGLU™ and Matrix Amino you combine all the required doses of recovery that your muscles ever need.
Matrix Amino is the most comprehensive and effective amino acid supplement available to athletes. No other formula contains the high quantities and precise ratios of muscle-supporting amino acids, such as leucine, valine, isoleucine and HICA (the leucine metabolite that is 4 times as strong as leucine at only ¼ the dosage). Matrix® Amino also contains a powerful dose of citrulline and beta-alanine to maintain optimal blood flow, muscle pump, and muscular endurance during intense exercise.
SuperGLU™ is an ultra-pure, micronized glutamine powder that solves all of the issues facing other glutamines on the market. By containing 100% natural glutamine powder, SuperGLU™ eliminates the unknown and harmful impurities associated with synthetic glutamine. The superior manufacturing process of SuperGLU™ guarantees a snowy white product without off-tastes and odors.
Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in the body and is present in high concentrations in the immune system, digestive tract and muscle cells. Over time, however, these glutamine levels can be depleted by strenuous exercise, infections, injuries and prolonged stress. Each 5g serving of SuperGLU™ disperses and suspends instantly in solution and helps to restore the body’s diminished reserves of glutamine, providing optimal health and muscle recovery.
