Prefuel® ingredients offer the building blocks for more strength, power, and endurance. These ingredients promote muscle development and recovery by sustaining an anabolic environment.
Creatine monohydrate brings results by increasing strength and lean mass. It provides additional energy for muscles to contract by replenishing muscle stores of creatine phosphate. This is a quick and usable source of energy for muscles to use after ATP stores are depleted.
Creatine has been shown to pull water into muscle cells, thus increasing the size of muscles. More importantly, research data shows that creatine places the body in an anabolic (muscle-building) state.
Instantized branchedchain amino acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine, and valine, are absolutely essential for those who want to build muscle. In PreFuel, they are included in the safest ratio of 2:1:1 that favors leucine. Leucine is the most potent of the BCAAs, playing a special role in stimulating protein synthesis.
Exercise causes BCAA degradation. Without adequate BCAAs, the body would go into catabolism (muscle breakdown) mode. Thus, BCAA supplementation helps prevent muscle breakdown. It also can reduce postworkout muscle damage and soreness.
Betaine anhydrous: According to the European Journal of Applied Physiology, this naturally-occurring chemical creates the proper hormonal environment (especially regulating insulin sensitivity) to favor muscle growth. Several studies show that betaine anhydrous increases performance in cyclists, and power and force in bench press, squat, and jump test.
The beta-alanine used in PreFuel has shown results in a broad span of athletic performances everyone from elderly subjects to professional body builders, endurance cyclists, collegiate football players, and competitive sprinters. Beta-alanine increases muscle carnosine levels. Carnosine is a muscle buffer that decreases acidosis by buffering the acidic environment created by active muscles. It also improves endurance, increases strength, and synergistically works with creatine monohydrate to delay muscle fatigue.
