Proforma Amino Sport powder with sweeteners - Supplement of amino acids, carbohydrates, magnesium and vitamins in powder
Essential amino acids: they are the amino acids that the organism cannot produce autonomously but which must be obtained through food. Essential amino acids contribute to the satisfaction of protein / nitrogen requirements.
Non-essential amino acids: they are the amino acids that the body can produce autonomously using other molecules. Non-essential amino acids also contribute to the satisfaction of protein / nitrogen requirements
Properties of components
– Essential branched amino acids BCAAs (L-isoleucine, L-leucine, L-valine): are the three amino acids most present in the muscle structure. After taking the BCAAs reach the muscle maintaining their structure unchanged without being metabolized in the liver.
The intake of branched chain amino acids is indicated for muscle recovery after intense physical activity.
– L-phenylalanine: essential amino acid, it can be converted into tyrosine, the precursor of the neurotransmitters L-DOPA, epinephrine and norepinephrine.
– L-histidine: it is an essential amino acid precursor of the chemical mediator histamine.
– L-lysine: it is an essential amino acid and indispensable element, together with proline and vitamin C, for the production of collagen in the connective tissue of blood vessels and skin.
– L-methionine: it is an essential sulfur amino acid, essential for the production in the body of the amino acids cysteine, carnitine and taurine.
– L-threonine: it is an essential amino acid involved in the metabolism of creatine, vitamin B12 and the neurotransmitters adrenaline and choline.
– L-tryptophan: essential amino acid precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin.
Non-essential amino acids
– L-arginine: intervenes in the process, urea cycle, of elimination of excess nitrogen in the form of ammonia. It is also involved in the biochemical processes of production of nitrogen monoxide (NO), also known as nitric oxide, a substance with a marked vasodilatory action at the level of the microcirculation.
– L-cystine: non-essential sulfur amino acid present in the structure of the keratin protein constituting hair and nails.
– L-glutamine: semi-essential amino acid responsible for transporting toxic nitrogen residues, in the form of ammonia, for subsequent elimination. In the case of intense muscular effort, a greater quantity of glutamine is required by the body.
– L-taurine: non-essential amino acid, concentrated in skeletal and cardiac muscle.
– L-tyrosine: non-essential amino acid, precursor of the neurotransmitters L-dopa, epinephrine and norepinephrine.
Carbohydrate mix (dextrose and cyclodextrins): dextrose is a rapidly assimilated monosaccharide, it is the main energy source of cells. Cyclodextrins are slow assimilating complex carbohydrates, consisting of long glucose chains obtained from the enzymatic splitting of starch.
Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of muscle contraction after intense and / or prolonged exercise that leads to muscle fatigue and depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscles. The beneficial effect is obtained with the consumption of 4 g of carbohydrates per kg of body weight. It is recommended to start and end the intake within 4-6 hours following intense and / or prolonged physical exercise.
Magnesium: contributes to muscle function, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
– Vitamin B1: contributes to the functioning of the nervous system and heart function.
– Vitamin B2: contributes to normal energy metabolism, to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
– Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid): contributes to energy metabolism, synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters.
– Vitamin B6: contributes to normal energy metabolism, to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, to the functioning of the nervous system and the immune system.
