For endurance athletes, consumption of Beta-Alanine will supply the element essential to the synthesis of carnosine. The role of carnosine, a dipeptide, is to contribute in the maintenance of a relatively neutral muscular pH when a large quantity of lactic acid is produced. Noting that the carnosine rate is limited by the quantity of Beta-Alanine available, a higher quantity of Beta-Alanine increases the concentration of muscular carnosine. Consequently, Beta-Alanine becomes a very interesting element if you wish to optimize performances over a long period of time because it will delay the negative effects related to lactic acid.
Coconut Oil is excellent to use for cooking because it is organic, virgin, cold pressed, and unrefined. The fats that supply coconut oil to our metabolism are easy to use as a source of energy because they are medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are fats that do not necessitate intervention from the bile or from pancreatic juices to be absorbed by the intestine. As a result, these triglycerides constitute an important energy source that is easy to use and that won’t stock up in fat reserves.
Delta-Charge is the ultimate product in terms of supplying the body with nutrients during a prolonged effort. In fact, with its three different sources of carbohydrates (maltodextrin, dextrose, fructose), Delta-Charge provides energy in the short, medium, and long term. Not only will it provide you with carbohydrates, Delta-Charge will furnish precious amino acids: BCAA (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine), L-Glutamine, Citrulline malate, and Taurine. These ingredients provide the muscles during effort, letting you push the limits of fatigue and assuring that the muscles does not drop into muscle catabolism. Avoiding this will considerably reduce recovery time following effort, helping you be in better shape for the next workout. To conclude, this product also contains superior quality electrolytes for complete assimilation and the goal of reducing risks of muscular cramps.

Omega 3 (fish oil) is essential for our organism because it supplies a quality source of fat. It has a positive impact on cognitive health and cerebral functions because the more Omega 3s in the composition of protective layers of cells, the better these cells will function. Omega 3s also act as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory since they have an effect in stabilizing cortisol, the stress hormone. Another interesting aspect of Omegas is that they contribute to the improvement of body composition because of its efficiency in developing a liaison between cell receptors and insulin. Thus permitting the body to adequately manage the amount of glucose consumed and to improve the stocking process into the muscles. Badly executed, this process causes an increase in cortisol, creating an inflammatory response and the body to increase its fat reserves.
Ideally, EPA-DHA is to be consumed during a meal.

Protein is important even for endurance activity adepts. In a unique drink, the consumption of proteins with carbohydrates after an endurance training is more effective to reload muscle glycogen reserves than simple use of carbohydrates. This is really important to know because following endurance training, the body needs to repair damaged tissues and to restore energy reserves. If an athlete doesn't take this into consideration, he won't be able to recover adequately. Recovery being a key element when talking about athletic performance and physical well-being, it is not something that should be neglected.

While providing the advantages of glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM, Joint Xtra is in a liquid formula to boost assimilation. This product allows the supply of important nutrients to the organism in order to reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation can be caused by repeated impacts, stress during endurance exercises, and also by injuries related to volume of training.
L-Carnitine has many positive effects on health in general and on physical performance. For example, L-Carnitine facilitates muscle oxygenation by improving blood circulation towards the muscles. More blood to the muscles gives the body the capacity to bring them more nutrients to sustain performance. Concerning endurance sports, what’s interesting with L-Carnitine is that it will help your body use your fats (lipids) as a source of energy since it is responsible for transporting fats to your cells. So, during the process of creating energy, your organism can use its own fats as the main source of energy. Noting that lipids (9kcal/g) supply more energy than carbohydrates (4kcal/g), adding Carnitine to your diet is a good strategy.
This product is an anti-catabolic mix of 27g per portion of meticulously chosen ingredients. The fact is, Post-Training Xtrem is more concentrated in amino acids than any other post-workout product on the market.
Moreover, with its mix of glycine, magnesium glycinate, glutamine, and taurine, Post-Training Xtrem will stabilize your cortisol level after an intense workout. Why is this important? When training in endurance, whether it be weight lifting, biking, running, swimming, etc. you create an enormous stress on your organism which will respond by asking the adrenal glands to secrete cortisol, the hormone related to stress. A high level of cortisol will considerably slow down recovery of the nervous and muscular system. Recovery being the most important piece of the puzzle in physical preparation, Post-Training Xtrem is a priority in terms of nutritional supplements.
Post-Training Xtrem is the ultimate recovery formula without any stimulants, carbohydrates or creatine.
This pre-workout product offers 26g of carefully selected amino acids for a goal of giving you the best anti-catabolic mix made. Pre-Training Xtrem's hyper concentrated amino acid formula will give your organism key nutritive elements that each play a different role in helping you offer a good physcial performance. This product will optimize performance for a long period without touching amino acid reserves in your muscles. By not drawing from muscular reserves, muscle catabolism will be avoided. Recovery will be faster, enabling you to give a better performance the next workout.
To be noted that Pre-Training Xtrem is free of all stimulants, carbohydrate, or creatine.

Vitamin and mineral supplements are important for all athletes regardless of their discipline. It is a priority to have a daily consumption of these micronutrients since each has its role in the proper functioning of the human body. For example, some vitamins have a powerful antioxidant role, some minerals will act on bone health, while others regulate the synthesis of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
What is even more interesting for endurance athletes is that certain vitamins/minerals have a proportionate demand to the total energy spent, as well as the metabolism of carbohydrates. The need may be greater in very physically active people and to whom carbohydrate catabolism is important.
Ideally, Pro-Vitamin 2.0 is consumed during a meal.
Pure BCAA is the best formula to obtain the highest concentrations of BCAAs combined with a great taste. BCAAs (Branched-chain amino acids) are in fact: L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine. They are essential to the human body and are only acquired through nutrition. Furthermore, BCAAs represent more than a third of muscle composition in humans.
It is important to know that endurance athletes experience a reduction in levels of muscular protein and that their body undergoes stress caused by muscular tears. That being said, BCAAs reduce the negative impact of this phenomenon by supplying muscles with exactly what they need. The simple act of fueling your body with BCAAs during exercise prevents this muscular catabolism. The body then won't have to seek BCAAs it need in its own muscles. If there are less tissues to be repaired after physical effort, the body can recover faster and immediately move to an anabolic state, building a stronger muscular system.
At last, concerning very long endurance activities, BCAAs can be used as a source of energy to maintain ATP levels if glycogen reserves are too low.

Pure greens contain phytonutrients that contribute in the maintenance of a strong immune system. In fact, it is a powerful antioxidant source, this helps fight the oxidative stress caused by lengthy training sessions. Furthermore, this supplement balances the body’s pH by making the organism more alkaline. When we are alkaline, we reduce general body inflammation and reduce the risk of injury. Pure greens also contain probiotics and digestive enzymes that maintain a healthy intestinal flora and assure proper digestion.
Here is why an endurance athlete should use Pure greens: being in an alkaline state can rapidly stop acid accumulation produced during and after effort. Reducing this acid accumulation increases capacity for prolonged effort, reduces cramps, and accelerates recovery. Also, the more a system is alkaline, the more oxygen it will contain, causing to globally improve body pH. Not only do we develop better capacity to use oxygen, but we increase the amount of oxygen available.
ZMA+ is a product containing ingredients very useful to optimize sleep. In fact, magnesium is an essential element that contributes to relaxing the nervous system. Having a calm nervous system during the deep sleep phases permits the release of growth hormones. The role of 5-Hydroxytryptophane (5-htp), is to be a serotonin precursor that will favor sleep regulation. Finally there is zinc, this mineral is an essential element to the functioning of over 300 enzymes inside the human body. This makes zinc an important player in the growth and development of the organism, the immune system, as well as in neurologic and reproductive functions. It also contributes positively to the production of testosterone.
Testosterone and growth hormone are two terms that can scare a lot of people when talking about nutritional supplements. Magnesium and zinc are two minerals that the human body is very fond of when comes time to produce its own testosterone and growth hormone. Both of these hormones are essential because they let the body recover between training sessions, recover in sleep, and assure good muscular and physiological health.
