The evolution of technology has put on the market supplements increasingly useful to the physical performance. The modern mixes tend to maximize the supply of nutrients to the muscle and at the same time allow you to be well-tolerated and easy to digest. The main components of the supplements, intra-workout are carbohydrates of high molecular weight, which in contrast to sugar, they can furnish energy to the body, allow you to counteract muscle catabolism, tends to be induced by the need of ATP, and thus energy during the performance, especially the most trying.
Other ingredients included in these supplements are the branched chain amino acids, which itself may not be anabolic, as to promote the synthesis anabolic we need all of the essential amino acids, can help to stave off muscle catabolism, leucine has been widely investigated because it has been shown, in some situations, to have a synergistic effect on the anabolism. Buffers lactic acid are used to reduce the feeling of fatigue. The chicken contains high levels of carnosine compared to other white meats, it is clear that taking chicken during the race or workout is not the ideal solution, while integrating the beta alanine may be a good strategy to have a buffering effect on the H+ ions of lactic acid. Other molecules, such as citrulline, arginine and extract of red beet contribute in increasing the levels of nitric oxide, an ideal situation to trigger the process of vessel dilatation and increased influx of blood and nutrients to the muscle. Vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and antioxidants are included to complete the various mixtures, with the latter playing an interesting role in the containment of inflammatory processes. If on the one hand, inflammatory processes are essential for the remodeling and the induction of muscle growth, on the other hand can become chronic, inflaming the muscles and tendons by inhibiting the attainment of the maximum physical performance, and leading, in extreme cases, to injury.
