      WHY SHOULD I TAKE AMINO ACIDS

      WHY SHOULD I TAKE AMINO ACIDS

      Amino acids are essential and necessary for building valuable lean muscle tissue. Most understand the value of Preworkout and Proteins in conjunction with a defined workout regiment. What if I told you, you could be missing a valuable asset in your supplement program if you are not using Amino Acids. Why? This supplement can increase recovery time, endurance, and assist with developing muscle tissue.*

      BENEFITS OF AMINO ACIDS

      Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are amino acids that help with muscle growth and nutrient transport and storage in several ways. There are studies that have shown they can increase nitrogen levels in your muscles. What is the benefit of that? This allows your body to exert energy without expending or losing muscle tissue later on. BCAAs can also help the body store glycogen. Your body uses glycogen as fuel during intense workout sessions. This shows improvement in endurance, leading to more reps and more volume in your lifts.*

      WHAT ARE BCAAs MADE OF?  

      Leucine

      Leucine is the the foundation of the BCAA formula, and as such should be a bigger portion of the ratio (i.e. 2:1:1 in favor of Leucine). Leucine is responsible for regulating blood-sugar levels. Leucine is a reactant that enhances the effects of Human Growth Hormones (HGH). Because of this, it is essential for protein synthesis and development of lean muscle mass.*

      Isoleucine

      Considered the smaller sibling to Leucine. Very similar in its effects to the body and muscles . . . However, Isoleucine can assist with muscle recovery, and stimulates HGH release within the body. 

      Valine

      Valine assists the body and muscle tissue with nitrogen retention.  This helps level the nitrogen balance and improve the use of glucose. Again, the more efficient your body is at using glycogen, the more endurance you will have leading to more efficient muscle growth. This can be very beneficial when competing and in a caloric deficit.

      L-Glutamine

      L-Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids found in the body. It can form upwards of 60% of your total amino acid formation at any given time. Both Glutamine and Creatine pass through the blood-brain barrier easily, so they can be defined as supplements for muscles and for the brain. In the brain glutamic acid can be found (fueled by Glutamine). This is essential for brain function and other mental activities.*

      The other benefits come with Glutamine's ability to balance the other amino acids out. While nitrogen retention is good for muscle pump and endurance, too much nitrogen can cause ammonia in the brain, which can lead to cerebral dysfunction. Glutamine attaches itself to the nitrogen molecules, forming glutamic acid.*

      BCAA Blast and Pure BCAA by UXO Supplements contain the necessary BCAAs in the efficacious doses of 6g per serving in a 2:1:1 ratio. Designed to drive your performance in your workouts and improve recovery time. Both formulas also include a panel of electrolytes that will keep you hydrated and optimized. Get yours today!!*

      THE IMPORTANCE OF CREATINE

      THE IMPORTANCE OF CREATINE

      Creatine is a staple in your supplement lineup if you are looking to increase size, increase strength, and quickly recover from workouts.

      SO, WHAT IS CREATINE?

      To start, Creatine is produced naturally by our own bodies and found in many food products we eat today. It increases protein synthesis which is necessary for building muscle. The more efficiently your body creates protein synthesis, the faster you can produce muscle tissue. Creatine improves your body’s ability to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is a raw source of energy, allowing you to push your muscles to new limits.  At the same time, Creatine pulls water from the body into the muscles giving them a fuller look and keeping them hydrated, leading toward improved performance in the gym.*

      TAKING IT CORRECTLY

      It is important to take Creatine prior to working out for all the benefits listed above. It is also important to take it post workout to absorb into the muscles, allowing for quicker recovery. Some may ask, “If Creatine is so important, why did we not put it in our Preworkout like other brand names?”

      Well, there are different ways to take Creatine, and we want to be able to meet the various needs of athletes today. Research has shown that 5-10g is all that is needed per day. However, many of the leading name brands include much less than that amount in their Preworkout formulas. Some athletes prefer to cycle on and off Creatine. By loading, they will take 20g or more to saturate their muscles giving them quicker access to the ATP, delivering faster gains. When loading, you cycle a month on and then cycle off of Creatine (eliminating it from their diet) for another month.

      With a Creatine free Preworkout, you can now do this and not have to sacrifice giving up your favorite Preworkout.

      So which is the best time to take Creatine, before or after a workout?

      Well, there are several ways to look at it. Creatine creates more ATP for your muscles, leading to more endurance and ability to lift more weight if used prior. If you use it post workout, you are fueling your muscles with necessary nutrients to replenish what is lost from workout. That being said, some research has identified that if should be used both before and after. That is up to the Athlete.

      Warning on Creatine.

      Creatine pulls water into the muscles and is valuable for increasing strength and size. Because of this, it is important that you continue to drink water during your workout and after.  If not, you could easily become dehydrated which could lead to medical problems.*
