Athletic and Sports Medicine Support

Athletes, ranging from enthusiastic amateurs to professionals, have become increasingly interested in utilizing nutritional supplements to meet their unique metabolic needs and to help achieve their personal best. Our recommended athletic products are “elite” in their own way by offering the highest purity and most bioavailable ingredients without being compromised by preservatives, additives, or fillers. They are a logical match for helping to maintain peak condition and optimal physiological function.*

Introduction

Our athletic products are divided into three convenient categories, allowing athletes to customize the endurance and/or speed/power components of their programs. The first category includes two core products that form the nutritional foundation for every athlete. The second category contains pre-exercise energy products for endurance as well as strength/power activities. The third offers post–exercise recovery and repair products to counteract the rigors of training.*

Post Exercise Recovery

For Muscles:

l-Glutamine

•The most abundant amino acid in the body, glutamine is especially useful for muscle repair after physical and metabolic stress*

•Maintains healthy lean muscle composition*

•Spares muscle protein breakdown by converting to glucose when additional energy is needed*

•Enhances healthy white blood cell function to restore immune defense post-exertion*

Reference: Bowtell JL, et al. Effect of oral glutamine on whole body carbohydrate storage during recovery from exhaustive exercise. J Appl Physiol. 1999 Jun;86(6):1770-7.

 

Intense exercise lowers blood levels of glutamine, which can remain persistently low with over-training. In order to maintain plasma glutamine levels, muscle cells break down to provide amino acids as substrates for glutamine resynthesis. Supplementation with glutamine may help spare muscle protein.*
