Active Up mineral sport drink by Muscle Clinic is a multivitamin supplement in the form of a powder containing carbohydrates, vitamins B, C, E, calcium, potassium and magnesium. It satisfies the body's demand for carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins that appear in athletes with intense physical effort. The product is perfect for all 3 training phases: the period before physical exercise, during training and the period of regeneration of the body after its completion. By using the active mineral sport drink you take care of the proper hydration of the body, regulate the metabolism of electrolytes - especially sodium and potassium, which you lose with sweat, especially during physical exertion, quench your thirst caused by high physical activity and loss of a significant amount of water.
In the pre-training phase, take 500 ml of the ready drink for an hour - in small sips. This type of intake does not interfere with the absorption of nutrients by the body and at the same time does not activate excessive diuresis, i.e. the whole of processes related to the production and elimination of urine from the body.
In the training phase, take from 200 to 250 ml of a ready drink every 20-30 min .; then 30 min. after the end of physical exercise, another 500 ml so as to make up for losses, especially of minerals.
Dextrose- a simple sugar for people practicing both strength and endurance sports. By lowering water activity it has a preservative effect and also limits the process of protein denaturation. The right amount of dextrose is beneficial in the post-workout phase because it is responsible for the transport of nutrients to muscle cells.
Maltodextrin - a multi-sugar composition consisting mainly of glucose. Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate. It is very easy to digest and in the human digestive tract is digested in an instant. It is an easy and quick source of energy. C
Potassium yutinate - is primarily responsible for controlling muscle contractions and maintaining proper blood pressure. In addition, it plays an important role in water and electrolyte management. Including potassium supplements in the diet will prevent heart rhythm disorders and skeletal muscle relaxation.
Magnesium lactate - helps in the proper functioning of muscles and in maintaining electrolyte balance. The most important function of magnesium is participation in energy management and energy production. Thanks to it, we can obtain energy and building material for our cells from consumed and properly digested meals. This element affects the transformation of both carbohydrates and fats, and at the cell level regulates the synthesis of the basic energetic compound, which is ATP.
Vitamin C- plays an important role in the formation of collagen, which is about 1/3 of the total amount of protein in our body. It is the basis for building the skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, blood vessels and valves in the heart. Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant, accelerates the breakdown of harmful substances formed under the influence of intense training, effectively protects against infections. Another advantage of this vitamin is the improvement of iron absorption and the improvement of oxygen transport to the cells, which translates into an improvement in muscle condition. The effective absorption of oxygen extends the working time of the muscles and delays the anaerobic breathing phase of the muscles causing the formation of sourdough. In addition, vitamin C effectively leaches lactic acid from the muscles and thus speeds up the regeneration process after training. In addition, ascorbic acid affects the release of male hormones, including testosterone, which is desirable by athletes.
Vitamin B6 - is a coenzyme of many enzymatic changes in the body including transamination and decarboxylation of amino acids. Particularly important is its participation in the transformation of tryptophan, which produces serotonin and nicotinic acid. It is essential in the process of phosphorylation, affects glycogenesis and glycogenolysis in muscles, plays an important role in immune and hematopoietic processes.
Vitamin B1- is very well soluble in water, which directly affects its bioavailability. It plays an important role in tissue breathing processes, including metabolic carbohydrate metabolism. It is one of the most important vitamins, which deficiencies can lead to weakness, fatigue, problems with eyes (nystagmus), circulatory insufficiency, disorders of the digestive system, and even in extreme cases to depression.
Pour 10 g of the MC active mineral drink into 250 ml of still water. Then, mix until homogeneous. To dissolve the powder, use still water or, as a last resort, at room temperature.
