Amino Acids

The chemical building blocks of proteins are essential to the human body and all its processes. There are twenty-one in all and most are termed non-essential because they are produced by the body itself. Bodybuilders, however, deplete bloodstream levels of certain non-essential aminos (glutamine, for instance) swiftly, requiring supplemental intake. Other amino acids (the BCAAs valine, leucine, and isoleucine) can only be acquired through dietary intake, and are thus termed essential. Different aminos are linked to different processes, some of which are of special interest to bodybuilders. Arginine has been linked to vasodilation and nutrient delivery; tyrosine to focus and intensity; glutamine to muscle recovery after exercise. To achieve your bodybuilding goals, you need to know your aminos.

    Glutamine Powder Bodybuilding's Most Valuable Amino Acid   Athletes who neglect their intramuscular glutamine levels do themselves a grave disservice. L-Glutamine is the most important component of muscle protein, and a key nutrient for muscle repair and growth. That's why supplementation with ProSource's free-form Glutamine --both before and after working out--is an indispensable component of the serious athlete's bodybuilding regimen.Recent research also reveals that Glutamine's value goes beyond enhanced muscle recovery and repair. In fact, one landmark study has reported that L-glutamine supplementation can increase body weight, body cell mass, and intracellular water in a manner not unlike Creatine monohydrate.(2) Finally, clinical research suggests that glutamine is essential for maintaining intestinal function, immune response, and amino acid homeostasis during periods of severe stress (such as intense exercise).(3) ProSource Glutamine --available in powder or convenient capsule form. 1) T.C.

    Mega BCAABranch Chain Amino Acid ComplexComprehensive Anti-Catabolic Most bodybuilders know that BCAAs (composed of the amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine) are the indispensable building blocks for the maintenance of a lean, muscular body. What many do not know, however, is that the quality of BCAA supplements can vary wildly from product line to product line. Now, you can buy these key anti-catabolic, muscle-sparing branched-chain amino acids with confidence.ProSource's Mega BCAA contains a precise ratio of vastly superior, premium-grade aminos in a convenient capsule form for maximum assimilation. Other manufacturers simply lack ProSource's direct-to-the-consumer cost advantage, and are forced to settle for inferior BCAA source material. And when quality suffers, so do results. Leucine itself is a potent muscle-sparing nutrient, while isoleucine is needed for hemoglobin formation and to help stabilize and regulate energy levels. And valine is necessary for muscle metabolism, tissue repair, and proper maintenance of nitrogen balance. Synergistically, their combined effect engages a multitude of processes to help energize, protect and build muscle tissue, thus producing the most favorable environment for a lean, fit body. With critical processes like these, you need quality you can trust. ProSource's Mega BCAA is formulated at the precise optimal ratio to yield maximum results.

    Myo-SurgePowerful Anabolic Pre-Workout Formula Most athletes recognize the importance of nutritional supplementing after exercise. Many do not know, however, that fueling up on essential BCAAs and glutamine before working out is every bit as important to the mass-building equation. In fact, one major study has indicated that pre-workout supplementation may be superior to post-workout supplementation when it comes to enhancing protein synthesis(1). If you're not getting the mass-building results you want from your workout regimen, Myo-Surge pre-workout formula may be the solution. Myo-Surge gives your glutamine levels a powerful boost while providing a wide array of essential branched chain amino acids for maximum protein synthesis during and after exercise. In recent clinical research, glutamine and BCAAs have also proven indispensable in reducing muscle breakdown, increasing growth hormone levels(2), enhancing nitrogen retention(3) and glycogen synthesis, and blocking cortisol production.

    TaurinePotent Muscle Cell Volumizer Mega Taurine CapsThis conditionally essential amino acid is the second most abundant amino in muscle tissue and has a number of important benefits to bodybuilders. Taurine has demonstrated profound muscle cell volumizing effects, which can help to enhance protein synthesis. Taurine also has powerful insulin-mimicking effects, which can enhance glucose and amino acid metabolism. Taurine's powerful anti-catabolic effects have been well documented. In one recent study, Taurine was shown to exhibit significant reductions in muscle breakdown by decreasing the highly catabolic chemical 3-methylhistidine by 20%. Intense exercise and stress quickly deplete taurine levels in the muscle. Therefore many researchers now believe that all high-intensity bodybuilders looking to maximize gains in strength and size should include 1000 mg to 1500 mg of Taurine in their daily supplement regimen.
