YOUR PERFORMANCE MATRIX
BETA ALANINE: This amino acid has been found to help delay fatigue during high intensity exercise. Beta alanine is an important precursor for the production of carnosine, a peptide which is naturally present in muscle tissue. Carnosine acts to buffer the increased lactic acid (hydrogen ions) that are produced during high
– intensity (anaerobic) exercise – a contributor to muscle fatigue. Beta- alanine is believed to be a rate- limiting factor in the production of carnosine. Supplementation with beta- alanine may therefore promote an increase in muscle carnosine levels, enhancing this acid- buffering capability and delaying muscle fatigue.
ARGININE ALPHA KETOGLUTARATE: Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid. One of its most important functions in the human body is to serve as a precursor for the synthesis of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide itself acts as a vasodilator, relaxing the blood vessels and increasing blood flow which may contribute to a more efficient oxygen delivery to exercising muscles. Alpha Ketoglutarate is a key compound in the Krebs or Citric acid cycle. This is a sequence of reactions that occurs within many body cells, and is necessary for the production of ATP (the body’s energy currency).
ORNITHINE: An amino acid that performs a key role in the urea cycle. The urea cycle functions to remove the build- up of excess ammonia as a result of muscle glycogen depletion (depletion of energy stores). Production of ammonia is thought to be one of the factors that contributes to fatigue during exercise.
BRANCHED CHAIN AMINO ACIDS (BCAAS): These are subgroup of the 9 essential amino acids. The BCAAs make up approximately 1/3 of the protein found in skeletal muscle and unlike the other amino acids are largely metabolised here. The BCAAs are the preferred amino acids oxidised during endurance training, or high intensity muscle contraction exercises such as weight lifting. Providing BCAAs via the diet may help to limit muscle damage and protein catabolism (the breakdown of muscle), and help to promote the building of lean muscle tissue.
CITRULLINE MALATE: Although an amino acid, citrulline is not involved in protein synthesis. Dietary citrulline is taken up by the kidney and metabolised to generate arginine (see above). It is therefore thought to help support dilation of the blood vessels.
ACETYL L- CARNITINE: Carnitine is a compound found predominantly within the skeletal and cardiac muscle, it facilitates the transport of fatty acids into the cell
mitochondria for oxidation and energy provision.
COFFEE ARABICA SEED EXTRACT: This key ingredient provides 250mg of caffeine per serve. Caffeine is a nervous system stimulant, stimulating heart function, blood circulation and the release of adrenaline (a further stimulatory hormone) from the adrenal gland. Caffeine also enhances psychological processes and neural excitability in the brain. This can increase alertness and reduce the perception of effort which may help to delay the onset of fatigue. Due to these effects, caffeine has been theorised to enhance performance in many types of exercise, including endurance, strength, speed and power.
