Beta-Alanine is a natural amino acid produced in the liver. Pre Workouts with Beta Alanine are for the athlete who wants more—more reps, speed, muscle, focus, and more personal records. As the leading ingredient in the top sports nutrition formulas, Beta-Alanine helps athletes of all abilities push past plateaus and reach peak performance. If your goal is to constantly redefine what your “best” looks like, then Beta-Alanine is your fuel. Several studies have reported that Beta-Alanine supplementation can increase high-intensity intermittent exercise performance and/or training adaptations. Benefits to all athletes taking Beta-Alanine supplement may include:
- Build better muscle faster
- Extend endurance
- Enhance mental focus
- Speed recovery time
Beta-Alanine regulates the amount of the molecule carnosine that can be stored in the muscles. One of carnosine’s roles in our muscles is to assist with the regulation of lactic acid levels. When a muscle contracts repeatedly during exercise, it becomes more and more acidic. This, in turn, impairs its ability to continue contracting, until eventually it can no longer contract at all and you develop muscle fatigue. Carnosine has been shown to reduce lactic acid accumulation in your muscles during exercise, which leads to improved athletic performance.
L-Arginine A-Ketoglutarate (AKG) Benefits
There are two parts to this supplement — L-Arginine and A-Ketoglutarate. Each have a different function.
L-Arginine Helps Build Muscle Mass & Improve Performance
Arginine is a nonessential amino acid, which means that the body makes it on its own. Many foods also contain arginine. It’s role in the body is to regulate the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a natural vasodilator, meaning that it makes the blood vessels larger in diameter, allowing increased blood flow.
Because of this surge in blood flow, muscles receive more oxygen and nutrients. These include carbohydrates, other amino acids and hormones. As a result, Arginine users are able to work out longer. Muscles can also recover faster since, in theory, the toxic byproducts formed through exertion are removed more quickly.
In one study, 2 grams of L-Arginine improved performance among male athletes. In another study, Arginine helped enhance competitive swimmers with faster and more intense intervals.
Arginine can also help build lean muscle mass. It’s one of a few essential amino acids that can spark protein synthesis. Thus, as a catalyst for protein synthesis, it can lead to faster muscle repair and increased muscle mass. In a study, protein synthesis rates were higher among groups who consumed Arginine.
Finally, Arginine can increase insulin production and decrease the amount of free fatty acids in the blood after workouts. As a result, muscles are able to absorb any extra glucose or nutrients in the body and use them to build muscle tissue.
A-Ketoglutarate Provides Energy Boost
A-Ketoglutarate is involved in the production of cellular energy. More energy means less fatigue during workouts. In addition, A-Ketoglutarate helps the body preserve levels of another protein-building amino acid, Glutamate, during exercise. More energy plus more Glutamate equals more muscle.
L-Tyrosine is a nootropic supplement that helps to enhance your brain, mood, and stress response. Tyrosine is an amino acid precursor for three important neurotransmitters: dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline. By improving the rate of neurotransmitter synthesis, Tyrosine stimulates the central nervous system. It appears to function as an adaptogen by relieving physical symptoms of stress, such as mood swings. In addition, Tyrosine stimulates Human Growth Hormone. Also known as growth hormone (GH), it plays a key role in growth, body composition, cell repair, and metabolism.
L-Tyrosine, on the other hand, is one of the best supplements for counteracting the negative effects of caffeine like jitters, irritability, fatigue, and burnout. This makes it a great ingredient to balance the Caffeine effects found in BREAK-OUT.
It boosts levels of L-DOPA in the body, which is rapidly converted to the catecholamines—dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine—most affected by caffeine and high-intensity workouts. When you support these neurotransmitters and hormones, you support the key brain functions that they’re involved in, like attention and focus.
