Activlab EAA Xtra is a unique supplement containing a mixture of exogenous amino acids, which are crucial for body regeneration, and a set of B vitamins, which support weight training and optimise functioning of the whole body. The product is ideal as a dietary supplement of active people who want to provide themselves with the best possible conditions for improving their strength, endurance and health.
Exogenous amino acids, also called EAA (Essential Amino Acids) is a group of 8 amino acids of great importance for every person, especially for athletes. The body is unable to synthesize these compounds on its own, therefore their high supply together with diet or supplementation is extremely important. They are so important to the human body, because they are a basic element of skeletal muscles, as well as many other tissues. They are necessary for many processes taking place in the body, allow the formation of some hormones and can serve as a source of energy. They can also reduce fatigue during training. In addition, some of them significantly affect our mood, being the precursors to important neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and melatonin.
EAA anabolic properties
To increase muscle mass, it is necessary to meet 3 basic conditions: provide the muscles with an appropriate stimulus, fulfil higher energy demand and supply a lot of good quality protein. The term ‘good quality protein’ refers to the type of amino acids it is made of. To maximise muscle growth, you gave to provide yourself with high supple of BCAA amino acids (Branched Chain Amino Acids), which are leucine, isoleucine and valine, being also part of EAA. They are responsible for activation of mTOR kinase, which initiates muscle protein biosynthesis leading to muscle growth. Appropriately high amount of amino acids in the diet may contribute to the improvement of the nitrogen balance in the body, which also results in faster regeneration and thus increase in muscle mass.
Protection against muscle catabolism
During weight reduction, the body tries to maintain the energy balance through the breakdown of its own tissues (mainly fat cells), which is obviously a desirable effect. However, catabolic reactions may also affect muscles, thereby reducing their hard-earned volume. High content of wholesome proteins may, however, counteract this phenomenon, therefore it is worth making every effort to ensure that the proteins consumed are of the highest possible quality. Taking EAA can be an excellent way to supplement protein in general or its types with a worse aminogram, as it contains essential amino acids.
Higher level of energy and endurance
Another argument for supplementing EAA is the ability of these amino acids to boost energy level during physical effort. Taking the supplement before training allows to do more repetitions and decreases fatigue. In this way an athlete is able to complete a heavier training, which will stimulate his muscle mass to grow even more, or - in case of reduction - will be a signal to keep up the existing muscle mass.
Group B vitamins contained in the supplement support functioning of the nervous and circulatory systems and boost anabolic potential. This vitamin group is characterized by an extremely wide spectrum of activity in the human body, which is related to the role of cofactors in the enzymatic reactions performed by these compounds. It is also worth adding that some of them have an anabolic effect, such as vitamin B12 contained in this preparation as 5'-deoxyadenosylcobalamin. This substance has been the subject of many studies in terms of supplementation improving sports performance from the mid-20th century.
In addition, these vitamins improve the condition of the skin, hair and nails, and pantothenic acid (also known as vitamin B5) is ideal to alleviate acne and other skin diseases. The manufacturer has ensured excellent absorption of the included vitamins by using advanced forms that absorb more quickly and show greater bioactivity. It is also worth adding that 1 portion covers 50% of the demand for all basic B vitamins.
To sum up, Activlab EAA Xtra is a supplement in the form of easily soluble powder, dedicated to active people who want to speed up the achievement of their dream figure and ensure high level of energy during training.
This product is perfect for everyday supplementation, both in the mass period and during reduction, as anti-catabolic agent.
This preparation is perfectly suitable for use as an intra-workout during heavy and prolonged workouts. In this case, it is worth including carbohydrate nutrient, a small dose of caffeine and electrolyte to the supplement.
ACTIVLAB is one of the most respected brands among manufacturers of dietary and nutritional supplements for athletes and people, who have an active lifestyle. Among the company products, you can find carbohydrates, protein and amino acids, which support muscle building. There are also supplements which increase endurance during exercise and supplements to help reduce body fat.
