Friram is a branched chain amino acid (BCAA) supplement with Kyowa pharmaceutical quality in a 2:1:1 ratio.
BCAAs are abundantly present in the muscles (35% of the total) and represent one of the most important factors of muscle protein metabolism regulation.
During intense and prolonged effort lasting over one and a half hours, they are normally effective to improve performance.
In such conditions, they contribute to the energy requirements by transforming into glucose and they spare muscle glycogen (gluconeogenetic action), increase physical endurance and speed up recovery.
In addition, since they compete with tryptophan, the precursor amino acid of serotonin, a substance with inhibitory action on the nervous system, they contribute to ensuring alertness and an optimal activity of the nervous system itself.
Several studies confirm their ability to facilitate testosterone secretion and directly stimulate muscle protein synthesis.
As they are not directly metabolised by the liver, but in the muscle, they can be taken without any precautions in a recommended average dosage of 1g for every 10kg of body weight.
Out of the 3 amino acids, leucine is the most responsible for the activation of the protein synthesis mechanism, through the mTor cell receptor.
This activity is particularly useful in the post-exercise phase, in which energy and efficiency recovery is especially important to improve the physiological ability of adapting to any physical effort.
Friram is particularly suitable for those who do strenuous sports activities as it stimulates muscle growth and improves muscle recovery, strength and tone.
Thanks to their trophic action on the muscle, BCAAs are also ideal to facilitate muscle recovery following traumas or surgery and during rehabilitation.
It is recommended to take an average dosage of 1 g / 10 kg of weight, possibly together with a fruit or near meals.
For sportsmen, according to the type of sport and its intensity, they can be taken differently: before, during or after the effort, according to the desired goal.
Example. Energy action (intense and prolonged activity) and recovery: 4 tablets 20 minutes before or during, 4 tablets 20 minutes after the end of the activity, with maltodextrin or other complex carbohydrates and mineral salts.
