Competition Gel was created to optimize energy-muscle metabolism in endurance sports.
It is designed for the professional athlete and for anyone seeking maximum performance during prolonged physical exercise; to delay fatigue and encourage post-race recovery processes.
It is composed of a carbohydrate component with slow absorption and low glycemic index, Isomaltulose, able to support energy needs in the medium and long term. The additional energy potential is provided by the complex carbohydrates contained in the beet juice. Competition contains a high dose of branched chain amino acids, glutamine, beta alanine and glycine, amino acids with an energetic role, capable of maintaining optimal muscle efficiency and delaying fatigue through specific activities. The presence of the beta-Alanine amino acid, thanks to the induction of Carnosine production, is particularly useful for counteracting muscle acidosis and improving muscle oxygenation.
In this respect, the big news is the presence of an important dose of concentrated red beet juice (Beet 4 Perf ™) and titrated in nitrates (1.5%). Numerous scientific studies confirm its ability to increase the availability of oxygen in muscle cells, with consequent improvement in mitochondrial function. Numerous studies confirm that the use of red beet juice during intense physical activity contributes to improving the efficiency of energy metabolism, reducing lung ventilation and increasing peripheral oxygen availability. The latter peculiarity translates into greater reactivity to fatigue and severe climatic conditions, in which peripheral capillary ischemia occurs.
Glutamine is an excellent resource for the immune system which excessive physical effort tends to weaken; it seems to contribute directly to reducing intestinal permeability and the disposal of nitrogen waste produced during exertion.
