Vitamin C: Is a crucial vitamin for recovering cells when they’re exposed to various stressors i.e., strenuous physical exercise, poor diet, lack of sleep and fatigue. You will find 200% RDI Vitamin C within the mix, this amount will help repair and protect damaged cells to keep feeling healthy, strong, and balanced. Not only will Vitamin C be great for all things above but it’s great at boosting your immunity too, you’ll be able to train right through winter!
Electrolytes (magnesium, potassium, sodium, and calcium): these nutrients are electrically charged and essential for many physiological functions in the human body, making them a crucial component to both physical and mental performance. Sodium is the key driver of hydration in the body and requires a small number of carbohydrates to cross over cell membranes with the help of specially-designed transporters – SGLTs (sodium-glucose linked transporters). Overall, electrolytes efficiently transport water to the cells to ensure you are hydrated to your optimal level.
Coconut Water: it’s popular for rehydration after exercise or during mild illness, this is because of its amazing electrolyte balance it has within. It’s important that your body remains hydrated when exercising to allow your muscles to continue performing at their peak even when they become tired from a strenuous workout. Electrolytes are essential for muscle contractions and fluid balance, during exercise these are lost with sweat and therefore replenishment is key!
B Vitamins (B6, B12): Boost your energy levels and give your workouts 110%, accelerating your results when you’ve got energy in corner. B vitamins play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being, they are the building blocks for a healthy body, directly impacting your energy levels, brain function (e.g., mood boosting) and cell metabolism. Deficiencies in these micro-nutrients, i.e., B12, are associated with increased risk and incidence of mental health declines (depression, anxiety) (1).
BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine): BCAA’s make up around 1/3 of muscle protein, therefore consuming BCAA’s when building muscle can assist you in hitting goals faster and efficiently. The ratio of 2:1:1 (Leucine:Iso:Val) will boost your muscle mass and give you the muscle growth you are working hard for.
EAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Histidine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine and Tryptophan): Amino acids are the building blocks for new tissues and cells, our bodies are constantly breaking down these muscle tissues during exercise. Our bodies can produce many of these amino acids on their own, there are ‘Essential Amino Acids (EAAs)’ that we can only get through diet or supplementation. Plant-based eaters may struggle to get enough EAAs into their diets and this formulation has a unique combination of plant-based aminos, helping your muscles to synthesise and grow during your workout.
