IHS BCAA PLUS - BCAA branched amino acids are the basis for any athlete's supplementation! Therefore, they could not be missing in the group of products prepared by IHS Technology. The number of proposals and forms of this product available on the market of sports nutrition supplements has motivated us to prepare something special. Scientists at IHS Technology focused primarily on mapping the BCAA proportions found in human muscles. Therefore, leucine, valine and isoleucine in BCAA PLUS were composed in a ratio of 1.3: 0.9: 0.8, which is a reflection of their natural form. This composition is automatically becoming the most effective form of administration of branched chain amino acids.
BCAAs account for about 30% of our muscles, in the absence of glucose or intense, violent effort, they are directly burned. Of course you can prevent this by supplying branched chain amino acids from outside. The addition of Beta Alanine, Histidine and B group vitamins found in BCAA PLUS determines the formation of the carnotin, which is used in energy processes inside the muscles. Its energetic decay ensures prolonged muscle work without acidification, which allows for more intense training.
The complex of Tyrosine and Acetyl L-carnitine together with magnesium and B vitamins used in our product guarantees adequate concentration and improvement, the quality of brain-muscle communication during the exercise. Tyrosine is a precursor to dopamine, serotonin and noradrenaline, while Acetyl L-carnitine is responsible for improving nerve conduction.
When you reach for BCAA PLUS, you get a complete product. Flawlessly chosen proportions of branched chain amino acids, enriched with a set of substances acting synergistically on the improvement, quality and duration of your workouts. The combination of amino acids proposed by us with the right amount of B and magnesium vitamins guarantee the development of muscle tissue and provide the appropriate energy substitute during intensive training.
Leucine - affects the synthesis of skeletal muscles in several ways: increases the secretion of insulin, a powerful anabolic present in our body, affects the protein kinase S6 activity, accelerates the phosphorylation of the binding protein eIf4E and affects the degree of binding between proteins (eIF) 4E and eIF4G. All this, despite complicated sound and naming, boils down to a very simple assertion - Leucine increases the degree and speed of protein utilization for muscle building.
Valina - its presence in this combination, owes not only to the aforementioned need to administer all three BCAA amino acids together but also to reduce the fatigue of the central nervous system. In addition, as with the other two amino acids, it is easily converted into the energy consumed by working muscles and thus allows to save glycogen stores accumulated in the liver.
Isoleucine - the supply of large quantities of Leucine causes a reduction in the level of the remaining two amino acids: Isoleucine and Valine, which is why it is so important to use all three compounds together. In addition, Isoleucine is classified as glucogenic amino acids, ie those that the body can easily and quickly transform into the energy necessary for its functioning. This means that we will be able to not only train longer and more intensively, but also to regenerate faster.
Beta Alanine - is necessary for the production of carnosine and blocks building proteins that help prevent the aging of the body. The compound supports the proper functioning and development of muscles. Amino acid is known for reducing muscle fatigue, which can help your muscles work better during training. This in turn promotes muscle growth. Beta-Alanine is particularly helpful in intensive short-term training such as weight lifting. Some people taking beta-alanine may notice a slight tingling sensation known as paraesthesia. The tingling arises because beta-alanine dilates the blood vessels, allowing more oxygen and blood to be delivered to the muscles.
L-tyrosine- is an endogenous amino acid which is a precursor of neurotransmitters - dopamine, adrenaline and norepinephrine. These compounds are essential for the proper functioning of nerve conduction processes and intercellular communication. Adrenal hormones are produced in response to stress, and by preparing the body for a high physical effort, they increase the use of adipose tissue as the most efficient source of energy.
N-acetyl-L-carnitine is an acetylated and metabolically active form of the amino acid L-carnitine - a vitamin-like substance. Its main properties include nootropic, neuroprotective, antioxidant and promoting fat metabolism in the mitochondria. In addition, Acetylcarnitine positively affects the condition of the circulatory system and sensitivity of tissues to insulin; it also reduces the feeling of tiredness. The substance also takes part in the regulation of hormone management - it mainly affects the levels of testosterone and cortisol.
Magnesium - is one of the most important minerals in the body. It is necessary as a cofactor in hundreds of enzymatic processes in cells. It helps in maintaining the normal function of muscles and nerves, maintains a steady heart rhythm, supports healthy cardiovascular health, supports the immune system and keeps bones in good condition. Magnesium also helps in maintaining blood sugar and blood pressure, and is involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Magnesium is the main factor relaxing the smooth muscles in the blood vessels, thereby reducing peripheral vascular resistance and promoting healthy cardiovascular system. Magnesium also affects the levels of norepinephrine in the blood and the synthesis of serotonin and nitric oxide. What's more, there is strong evidence that dietary intake of magnesium and supplementation improve the metabolic profile. Magnesium has been shown to favorably affect insulin resistance, serum lipid profiles, inflammation, platelet aggregation, and oxidative stress.
Thiamine is a preparation aimed at the most demanding athletes who know what their body needs and look for specific vitamins to supplement their deficiencies. Vitamin B1 is very soluble in water, which directly affects its bioavailability. It plays an important role in tissue respiration processes, including metabolic carbohydrate metabolism. It is one of the most important vitamins, which deficiencies can lead to weakness, fatigue, problems with the eyes (nystagmus), circulatory insufficiency, disorders of the digestive system, and even in extreme cases to depression.
