Athletes Need to Supplement

Have you ever asked yourself - Is there a safe supplement that can help you get an edge over the competition?

 

The results may vary from athlete to athlete. Research focuses on highly trained or pro athletes, so your results could be different, however, we may have an answer!

 

Let’s start with Caffeine. What does Caffeine do for endurance?

 

Come on, who wouldn’t want a cup of coffee in the morning? If you take caffeine 30 minutes before your training routine or event, it could improve your endurance. Let's see what experts say:

“Studies have shown repeatedly that you can get improvements in performance, mainly in endurance-type exercise, with caffeine,” says Janet Rankin, PhD, professor in human nutrition, foods, and exercise at Virginia Tech.

 

What is Creatine?

 

Creatine could help with repeated short bouts of intense exercises. Our body naturally creates creatine, and our muscles use it. Now, let's see what experts say:

“For very short-term bouts of exercise, creatine supplementation seems to aid in recovery,” says Thomas Sherman, PhD, professor in pharmacology and physiology at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC.

 

Burning Muscles with Beta-Alanine

 

Intense efforts cause muscles to make a lot of lactic acid, this is what makes us "feel the burn." Athletes who take beta-alanine feel a “burn” buffer.
Does it work? Studies show that cyclists and runners who took beta-alanine for 4 weeks improved their performance.

 

Amino Acids

 

Amino acids are the building blocks of muscle. Endurance360® contains a mix of amino acids that encourage muscle recovery and strength. Having readily available and easily digestible amino acids allow your muscles to quickly absorb and begin the process of rebuilding.

 

Thus we simply conclude - Athletes Need to Use Supplements.
