WHAT IS AJINOMOTO BCAA + GLUTAMINE?
LIFE PRO's BCAAs + Glutamine are manufactured with the AJINOMOTO patent, the world's leading manufacturer of pharmaceutical quality amino acids.
The branched amino acids, L-isoleucine, L-leucine, L-valine called BCAAs, belong to the series of the nine essential amino acids. BCCAs are able to increase protein synthesis while reducing the accumulation of ammonia in the body in situations of physical stress, helping to delay the onset of fatigue.
L-glutamine is a non-essential amino acid which means that it can be synthesized in the body from other amino acids such as valine, isoleucine or glutamic acid, however it is considered a "conditioned essential amino acid" or semi-essential because in conditions of physical or psychological stress, trauma, infection, intense training, etc., its consumption is higher than its synthesis: the body demands so much glutamine that it is not able to synthesize it in sufficient quantity.
Life Pro Bcaa 8:1:1 + Glutamine 300 G Ajinomoto. is a perfect blend for all athletes who want to take care of their muscles, as it will provide optimal muscle recovery and development.
Thanks to its formula avoids the catabolism that occurs after intense physical exertion or overtraining, which causes the breakdown of damaged muscles and cells.
Life Pro Bcaa 8:1:1 + Glutamine delays fatigue while increasing your strength levels.
This combination is ideal to increase the endurance of athletes, their strength and promote muscle development. The 4 amino acids act synergistically to provide you with all their benefits.
WHAT IS AJINOMOTO?
Ajinomoto is a patent that has been used to elaborate Life Pro Bcaa 8:1:1 + Glutamine to guarantee the maximum quality of the supplement.
Ajinomoto uses only isolated amino acids extracted by fermentation of vegetables.
Its modern patented process does not denature the ingredient, in this case the amino acids that are part of the proteins. This ensures that the quality of the raw material is among the best you can find and that it maintains all its natural properties.
Therefore, Life Pro Bcaa 8:1:1 + Glutamine is a sports supplement that provides branched chain amino acids or Bcaa in 8:1:1 ratio and glutamine of the highest quality since it has been elaborated under the Ajinomoto patent.
WHAT IS GLUTAMINE?
Glutamine is one of the 20 amino acids which are necessary for our organism to carry out various functions.
Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid. This means that it can be produced by the body without the need to be ingested through the diet. However, increasing its quantity through quality supplementation can have multiple benefits. It plays numerous vital roles in relation to the gain and maintenance of muscle mass and recovery after physical activity.
It is the amino acid with the greatest presence within the different muscle groups, and in general, it constitutes approximately 60% of skeletal muscle tissue, which makes it the one with the greatest number of functions assigned to it.
Glutamine is generated naturally in the organism, although between 4% and 8% of the protein in certain foods corresponds to this amino acid. The glutamine that includes BCAA 8:1:1 + Glutamine are of the highest quality and have been obtained under the Ajinomoto patent.
We can also find this amino acid present in the spinal cord, blood plasma, heart, lungs, kidney, cerebrospinal fluid and liver.
It has the ability to be converted into glucose when required: it is transformed into energy when our muscles require it. That is why it is important to ensure adequate levels, especially in recovery and endurance sports.
THE PROPERTIES OF GLUTAMINE
Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids in muscle tissue. It is a percussor of protein synthesis: due to the composition of this amino acid, one of its main functions is the transport of nitrogen in organs and tissues to carry out the functions related to different metabolic processes.
It contributes to avoid catabolism or loss of muscle mass. It is also involved in improving recovery after injuries.
Glutamine transports ammonia (toxic substance for the organism) from the muscle to the liver to be discarded. Regulation of the acid-base balance.
If glycogen stores are empty and energy is required, glutamine is transformed to be used: it acts and is used as an energy substrate to carry out ATP resynthesis. Adequate levels can promote endurance in athletes. In high intensity training, it can contribute to improve performance, and decrease fatigue as a consequence.
It has a great relevance in carrying out the synthesis of glutathione. Glutathione is a protein whose main function is to protect the cells, tissues and organs of our body. It is the most important antioxidant in the human body, it is called the universal antioxidant.
Glutamine is one of the precursor substances of glutathione. Because of this, it supports the proper functioning of the immune system.
In addition, it is involved in the performance of brain functions: Glutamic acid functions as a neurotransmitter in the brain. Neurons use it as a transmitter substance, promoting mental activity and brain functions.
WHAT ARE BCAAS 8:1:1?
BCAAs are branched amino acids that contribute to the maintenance and gain of muscle mass, as well as to a better recovery after workouts.
It is composed of top quality amino acids which are Leucine, in greater proportion, since the 8 refers to this amino acid. Valine and Isoleucine in a ratio of 8:1:1. For its formulation, the Ajinomoto patent has been chosen due to its high quality.
It is the most effective ratio to promote muscle mass gain.
BCAA's (Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine) form practically the third part of muscle tissue. These 3 amino acids participate in the processes of protein synthesis and the formation and construction of muscle mass and promote recovery and decrease fatigue.
Life Pro Bcaa 8:1:1 establishes an anabolic environment in your body, offering you energy in terms of muscles, collaborates in fat loss and minimizes recovery times, fatigue and muscle soreness. They improve and accelerate physical recovery, increase your performance, and promote proper muscle development.
Its main function is to help maintain muscle mass. Its presence in an adequate amount in the muscle helps to avoid the destruction of muscle fibers and tissues, that is to say, it avoids catabolism.
It is the amino acid with the highest BCAA ratio 8:1:1. It stimulates protein synthesis, and also intervenes in the optimal recovery of muscle injuries. Leucine also helps in the maintenance of an adequate blood sugar level.
Also, it can help to reduce that fat stored in our body, especially visceral fat because it allows to increase the metabolic rate during workouts.
The proportion of this amino acid corresponds to 1 in 8 of leucine. The physical composition of this amino acid is very similar to that of leucine. These small variations are what makes each one have different properties.
Isoleucine helps to eliminate fat during exercise by promoting its utilization as a source of energy.
The presence of an adequate level of isoleucine in the body can help prevent various diseases related to the cardiac system, the vascular system, and also reduce the risk of type II diabetes because it is able to regulate the level of glucose in the blood and thus increase energy levels.
At a muscular level, it promotes the synthesis of new muscle fibers and their reconstruction after exercise, which results in an improvement in the recovery process after a muscular injury.
The main and most important function of valine is to allow the positive balance of nitrogen, which is necessary to repair and build muscle tissues.
Among its multiple functions, we also highlight that it intervenes in the regulation of the amount of glucose in the blood, improves the state of the liver and gallbladder preventing diseases such as liver failure, the formation of stones in the gallbladder, cirrhosis or fatty liver.
When this balance is positive, i.e., more nitrogen is retained than is eliminated, it means that the muscles have recovered the proper shape after intense training and that we are in a state that favors the gain of muscle mass.
It also acts as a nervous system relaxant, which can reduce nervousness, anxiety or stress.
WHAT IS THE 8:1:1 RATIO?
The BCAAs present in Life Pro BCAA 8:1:1 + Glutamine have a ratio of the 3 amino acids that compose it 8:1:1.
The ratio refers to the proportion of leucine, isoleucine and valine, in that order that the supplement provides. Life Pro Bcaa 8:1:1 provides 8 times more leucine than isoleucine and valine.
This ratio is considered to be one of the optimal ratios for promoting the anabolic environment necessary for muscle mass gain.
Leucine is the branched amino acid of the three most involved in protein synthesis and in creating the anabolic environment for muscle mass gain. That is why we will always see higher amounts than the other two.
WHY COMBINE BCAAS WITH GLUTAMINE?
Both BCAAs and Glutamine are essential amino acids: that is, they cannot be synthesized by our body by itself. They must be ingested through diet or supplementation.
Glutamine, despite being the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue, is mainly degraded during long-term physical activity. The combination with BCAAs can favor those athletes who practice endurance sports and long duration such as running, triathlon, cycling etc. as it favors a quick recovery and more effectively than alone, after training.
The Bcaas will promote energy production at the muscle level, create a favorable environment for protein synthesis and as a result, favoring the recovery of athletes.
SUCRALOSE AS A SWEETENER OF LIFE PRO BCAA + AJINOMOTO GLUTAMINE
Life Pro BCAA 8:1:1 + Glutamine has been sweetened in its 3 different flavors lemon, orange and fruit punch, with sucralose. It does not contain aspartame or other sweeteners,
Sucralose is an artificial sweetener that was discovered in 1976.
Recently, its use in the field of fitness and sports supplementation is due to its safety in human consumption and the fact that it does not contribute calories to the organism. That is why it has been used in Life Pro BCAA 8:1:1 + glutamine.
This sweetener has the capacity to sweeten between 500 and 600 times more than conventional sugar. It is obtained from sucrose.
Most of this sweetener cannot be absorbed and is excreted, which only adds flavor and sweetness. It does not alter hunger and the level of toxicity it presents is very low since it has been proven that certain sweeteners can increase appetite levels.
It does not alter glucose or insulin. It is one of the safest sweeteners for human consumption. It is a sweetener suitable for diabetics because it does not influence glycemia or blood sugar concentration.
Also, sucralose prevents tooth decay because bacteria cannot decompose this sweetener and as a result tooth enamel will remain intact.
