Catanzaro Supplements Peri-Workout Formula contains a precise ratio of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), glutamine and lysine along with key support factors specifically engineered for optimal utilization during weight training sessions. These amino acids are essential for building muscle size and strength. They help the body recover quicker after intense training and promote lean muscle gains while reducing unwanted body fat.
The potential benefits of supplementing with BCAAs, glutamine and lysine are numerous. Here's a list of what these amino acids can do for you:
- promote fat loss and reduce sugar cravings when taken between meals
- provide an anti-catabolic effect prior to fasted aerobic work or strength training
- improve mental clarity pre-workout
- increase energy, reduce physical and mental fatigue, and significantly reduce post-workout soreness
- improve recovery post-workout
- provide an anabolic effect by raising insulin, growth hormone, IGF-1 and testosterone levels
- stimulate protein synthesis for greater muscle mass gains
- regulate blood sugar levels
- boost the immune system
- replenish depleted glycogen stores without a large increase in blood sugar
The Peri-Workout Formula comes in a 300 vcap bottle and each serving of 5 capsules contains l-leucine 1000mg, l-isoleucine 500mg, l-valine 500mg, l-glutamine 500mg, l-lysine 250mg, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 5mg and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride) 1mg.
The benefit of taking these amino acids in capsule rather than powder form is that you avoid ingesting high amounts of artificial sweeteners. Keep in mind that the gelatin in a capsule may compete for the same receptor site as certain amino acids and thus decrease the effectiveness of the supplement. Catanzaro Supplements uses veggie caps to prevent this from occurring.
The addition of glutamine and lysine to the formula improves the effectiveness of BCAAs both during and after workouts and the addition of vitamin B6 and vitamin C improves the absorption and utilization of the amino acids.
The Peri-Workout Formula is easy to digest and contains no fillers.
