Enhancing Your Performance
By Terri Bonin
Are you an exercise junkie? Are your kids enrolled in a bunch of sports activities? Maybe you want to enhance your performance or that of your kids. Who doesn’t want an edge during competition? It’s important to watch what you put in your body though!
What is it? So many people assume AminoWise is just a supplement, but it’s so much more! There are several different blends in AminoWise that help you fight fatigue and enhance recovery during and after exercise.
Okay so first there is the muscle performance blend. This blend provides branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), L-citrulline, and B-alanine – with a few other key amino acids. People have used BCAA’s for strength training and during exercise for years and they are a very popular fitness supplement. When you exercise, your muscles undergo stress, which causes them to grow and tone. Did you know, however, that during exercise small amounts of muscle can be consumed as energy? This process can be increased when people consume very low carb diets.
BCAA’s can prevent your body from using muscle as fuel by providing energy right to the muscle and promote lean muscle mass. They can even use spare glucose stores to help you work out more efficiently. L-citrulline is a powerful agent in producing Nitric Oxide (NO) in the blood. Nitric oxide helps improve blood flow. Enhanced blood flow during exercise can lead to better oxygenation of muscles, faster removal of toxic metabolites, and potentially improve your work out capacity! Yes, that’s correct! This is a supplement that has made a huge difference in track and cross country performance for my family.
AminoWise also contains a Recovery Blend. This blend contains wolfberry powder and antioxidant ingredients to support recovery after a hard work out. The polyphenols, zinc, and vitamin E work together to protect the muscles from fatigue and damage caused by exercise. Specifically, they work to reduce the release of lactic acid. Lactic acid builds up while you’re working out and causes soreness in your muscles. Reducing that means a less painful recovery.
Lastly, AminoWise helps with hydration by replenishing minerals lost during exercise. You can drink it during your workout but I prefer immediately after.
