Amino 12500 is a highly concentrated amino acid shot, consisting of 12.5g amino acids in the fastest available form. Due to its practical usability, the concentrate is ideal for both strength and endurance sports. Amino 12500 is based on whey protein hydrolysate in combination with the free amino acids L-ornithine, L-arginine and is rich in BCAA. These ensure that your muscles are protected quickly and in an optimal way during exercise. Especially if you are in an energy deficit during training, your body starts to "self-cannibalize" your muscles. Amino 12500 helps you to balance your protein balance during exercise.
Weight training: Ideally take immediately before training and in combination with a conventional protein shake (e.g. Whey protein) after the session. Protein is used to build and maintain muscle mass. Vitamin B6 serves the normal protein and glycogen metabolism and the regulation of hormone activity. The vitamin pantothenic acid contributes to a normal metabolism of steroid hormones and some neurotransmitters. Especially the amino acids BCAA, L-arginine and L-ornithine have an anti-catabolic effect and protect your muscles during exercise.
Endurance sports: Ideal companion for longer sessions (cycling, MTB, triathlon, trail running, hiking, ultra events, multi-day events) for an improved protein and amino acid balance. BCAA help you as "muscle protection" during exercise. It is recommended to take one shot every 2-3 hours during exercise or immediately after a hard workout to support recovery.
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) are the proteinogenic amino acids leucine, valine, and isoleucine. They belong to the essential amino acids, i.e. they cannot be formed by the body itself but must be supplied with the food consumed.
BCAA: More load, less fatigue
What oil is to cars, BCAA: Branched-chain amino acids are to athletes. BCAA are the branched-chain amino acids leucine, valine and isoleucine, which can be used by the muscles both as building materials and as fuels. They play an important role in the sports nutrition of strength athletes but also endurance athletes, because they can counteract central fatigue in the body under stress.
Endurance athletes therefore benefit from BCAA supplied during exertion because the body's own reserves are conserved. During physical exertion, BCAA are increasingly used by the body to provide energy with increasing duration and, if not supplied, the body's own reserves of muscle tissue are attacked. Decreasing BCAA levels also have a negative effect on central fatigue and the feeling of stress through their influence on tryptophane, another essential amino acid, and indirectly on serotonin. A supply of BCAA already during performance can therefore protect the muscles by first metabolizing the ingested BCAA.
Strength athletes appreciate BCAA mainly because of their importance as anabolic signal generators for muscle protein synthesis, especially leucine. BCAA can thus strengthen the effect of protein, which is crucial for muscle building and maintenance. In this function, BCAA naturally also have a direct influence on recovery, which is interesting for all competitive athletes.
Endurance athletes ideally use BCAA during long-term endurance stresses (cycling and biking marathons, gigathlon, ironman, long-distance triathlon, etc.) and also together with regeneration products. Strength athletes can take BCAA shortly before the workout and/or strengthen the post-workout protein shake.
In amino acid metabolism BCAA are also used for the body's own production of glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and the requirement often exceeds its availability during high stress and especially in the case of injuries or muscle-wasting diseases. Supplementation with BCAA can therefore also help the body to synthesize glutamine, which indirectly helps prevent the breakdown of body protein for glutamine production. Glutamine also promotes glycogen resynthesis and supports immune function. All in all, BCAA and glutamine play an important role in regeneration after physical exercise due to their properties.
BCAA is available from SPONSER in several forms
Powder for addition in shakes and drinks in individual dosages. Available as a neutral powder or with cola flavour.
In a can with 350 capsules (256 g). Strength athletes ideally take BCAA capsules in two servings each shortly before and shortly after training: 2 capsules per 10 kg body weight divided into two portions. Endurance athletes consume 2-4 capsules per hour during long endurance efforts and another 1 capsule per 10 kg body weight shortly after the performance.
Contains about 1100 mg BCAA per ampoule. The ampoules are practical to take with you, whether in a cycling jersey or sports bag, and are therefore ideal for both endurance and strength sports.
LIQUID ENERGY BCAA
Combines 42 g of carbohydrates with 500 mg BCAA and 400 mg taurine per tube (70 g). This energy gel is ideal during long-term endurance training and can also be used regeneratively. Application: ½ Tube every 20-30 minutes. Rinse with 200 ml water.
