When you are exercising or competing, you need a supply of amino acids to keep you going in your sport primarily to maintain muscle mass. During the exercise, you cannot eat and, even if you could, the operation of the digestive system is much reduced because blood is diverted to the muscles to provide much needed oxygen + nutrients and remove carbon dioxide + other waste products.
During exercise, the body needs to provide amino acids for the numerous metabolic processes that support the muscle functions.
- The amino acids in the OptimAAte® and ElectrAAte® products are those identified by research to be lost in the highest quantities through sweat and urine.
- Daily amino acid supplementation with OptimAAte® may assist in the development of muscle mass and the product is useful before, during, or after sustained strenuous exercise.
- The ElectrAAte® has been designed to provide the high-demand amino acids, plus the electrolytes, that can be lost through sweat and urine.
