With a goal set on improving strength, endurance, focus and recovery Shai Ross, Pro football player of the BC Lions trusts Pure Vita Labs EAA+ BCAA COMPLETE™ to ensure he is focused and energized for practice, competition and performing at his optimal level. Keep reading for 4 reasons why YOU need to include this performance enhancer in your sports nutrition protocol. This isn’t only for back flipping professional athletes so don’t be too Shai to try it!
1) EAA+ BCAA COMPLETE™ is a complete EAA (essential amino acid) blend.
Why is this important you may be wondering. Amino acids, often referred to as the building blocks of proteins, are compounds that play many critical roles in your body. You need them for vital processes such as building proteins, hormones, and neurotransmitters. Your body needs 20 different amino acids to grow and function properly. While all 20 of these are important for your health, only 9 are classified as essential. These are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. Although your body can make nonessential amino acids, it cannot make essential amino acids, so you have to get them from your diet. Essentially this complete blend ensures you have exactly what you need to build, recover and compete at your highest level. It is what keeps Shai Ross high flying and will give you the ability to keep reaching for new heights also.
2) Addition of Arginine
The addition of L-Arginine (CEAA) aids in total amino acid transport. Arginine, or L-arginine as it is called with its L-structure, is a semi-essential amino acid. Arginine is involved in many metabolic processes and important for improving circulation due to its vasodilating effect, it strengthens the immune system and has a positive influence on male libido and hair growth (since it can improve circulation to hair roots and stimulate growth).
The amino acid L-arginine improves the circulation and oxygen supply of the coronary and peripheral vessels through the release of nitric oxide which makes the level of nitric oxide in the blood higher. Nitric oxide relaxes the walls of the blood vessels and thereby improves the circulation in the whole body. Nutrients and oxygen are able to reach the organs quicker through the blood which on the whole has a positive effect on male potency, stamina and sexual performance.
Research suggests that the amino acid also accelerates the rate of the healing of wounds, improves the burning of excess fat and can be used in weight-reducing diets. Arginine supports the production of collagen (a fundamental component of various connective tissues (such as cartilage) and bone) and is therefore an important contributor to bone growth. In turn, arginine supports the growth of the osteoblasts which form the bone mass. An arginine deficiency, especially in older women, can be the cause of the emergence of osteoporosis.
The addition of L-Arginine provides amazing benefits for women, men, the weekend warrior, the recreational athlete and of course professional athletes like Shai who need to keep back flipping and making plays on the football field or any field, court, rink or world stage they compete on.
3) Build Immunity and Muscle
After you eat protein, your body breaks it down into amino acids and then uses them for various processes, such as building muscle and regulating immune function. There are 9 essential amino acids, of which 3 are also known as BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids). Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. BCAA’s increase muscle growth, decrease muscle soreness, reduce exercise fatigue, prevent muscle breakdown and benefit individuals with liver disease. More and more research shows that a complete EAA blend (including BCAAs) shows better growth and recovery than by just supplementing with BCAAs alone. EAA+BCAA Complete™ is the most complete formula of its kind – ready for every sport, ready to take on any challenge that is presented not only to the professional athlete like Shai but to average joes and jills as well.
Stacked with a stimulant-free focus blend, energizing B-vitamins, all 5 electrolytes and boosted with a 100% dose of the patented absorption agent, BioPerine® this product is truly the complete package when it comes to optimal performance on the field and off the field. Athletes, professional or recreational, students and career men and women benefit highly from a sports nutrition product that is sure to keep them focused, energized all throughout the day to tackle any challenge, make key plays and fight for every inch.
