Recover Faster with Supplements
Even though they are taken before a work out, pre-workout supplements help you recover afterwards. Almost every gym-goer knows that working out until failure is the best way to get gains quickly; however, it’s also the best way to ensure that you’re sore for what feels like the rest of your life.
Heatlhy1 provides quality ingredients that reduce muscle soreness and increase glucose and insulin levels after your workout, helping you feel better faster.
L- arginine is a chemical building block called “an amino acid”. It is obtained from the diet and is necessary for the body to make proteins. L-arginine is found in red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. L-arginine is used for heart and blood vessel conditions including congestive heart failure (CHF), chest pain, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease. L-arginine is also used for recurrent pain in the legs due to blocked arteries (intermittent claudication), decreased mental capacity in the elderly (senile dementia), erectile dysfunction (ED), and male infertility. L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.
Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid. Non-essential amino acids can be made by the body, so they don’t have to be provided by food. Most amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. However, some like beta-alanine are used to make other chemicals in the body. Beta-alanine is commonly used by mouth for improving athletic performance and exercise capacity, building lean muscle mass, and improving physical functioning in the elderly. It is also used for hot flashes, but there is limited scientific research to support this use. Beta-alanine is an amino acid. In the body it is converted to other chemicals that can affect muscle.
Ornithine ketoglutarate is a salt made from the amino acid ornithine and the glutamine precursor alpha-ketoglutarate. People use it as a medicine. Ornithine ketoglutarate is taken by mouth to build muscle and increase muscle strength. It is also used for HIV/AIDS and for healing wounds, skin pressure ulcers, and burns.
L-citrulline is a substance called a non-essential amino acid. Your kidneys change L-citrulline into another amino acid called L- arginine and a chemical called nitric oxide. These compounds are important to your heart and blood vessel health. They may also boost your immune system. L-citrulline boosts nitric oxide production in the body. Nitric oxide helps your arteries relax and work better, which improves blood flow throughout your body. This may be helpful for treating or preventing many diseases. Evidence suggests the supplement could possibly help lower blood pressure in people with prehypertension. This is an early warning sign for high blood pressure. It means you have a slightly raised blood pressure reading of 120/80 to 139/89. Prehypertension raises your risk for high blood pressure and heart disease.
Glutamine is one of 20 naturally occurring amino acids in dietary protein. In fact, L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the bloodstream and makes up 30–35 percent of the amino acid nitrogen in your blood. It’s known as a conditionally essential amino acid because your body uses it in large amounts. Found in both animal and plant proteins, it’s also available in supplement form and is widely popular in the fitness community and beyond. It’s found in high levels in both casein and whey protein There are two forms of L-glutamine. You can get regular L-glutamine in what’s called its free form, and it should be taken with food ideally for proper absorption by the body. The other type is called Trans-Alanyl-Glutamine (TAG) or Alanyl-L-Glutamine — it’s an amino acid attached to another amino acid, which basically means you’re going to digest it much better. Unlike free-form glutamine powder, you can take it on an empty stomach.
Leucine is one of the three branched chain amino acids and sometimes referred to as the ‘main’ amino acid due to the most popular benefit of BCAAs (muscle building) being mostly due to leucine. Leucine is an activator of the protein known as mTOR, which then induces muscle protein synthesis via S6K; the other two BCAAs may also activate mTOR but are much weaker than leucine in doing so (and as such, 5g of leucine will be more effective than 5g mixed BCAAs). The leucine metabolite, HMB, is also weaker than leucine at inducing muscle protein synthesis despite being more effective at preserving lean mass from breakdown. The studies assessing leucine mostly look at muscle protein synthesis when additional leucine is added to the diet or to a test meal, and it appears that leucine is able to reliably increase muscle protein synthesis after test meals. Whether this results in more lean mass over a period of time is somewhat less reliable though, and leucine appears to be more effective at promoting gains in muscle in people with lower dietary protein intake and in the elderly (who tend to have impaired muscle protein synthesis in response to the diet).
Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin. This means that the body requires vitamin B12 to work properly. Vitamin B12 can be found in foods such as meat, fish, and dairy products. It can also be made in a laboratory. It is often taken in combination with other B vitamins. Vitamin B12 is required for the proper function and development of the brain, nerves, blood cells, and many other parts of the body.
