REDCON1 – GRUNT EAA – RECOVERY & MUSCLE PROTECTION (30 SERVINGS)
Grunt is a potent and effective EAA formula packing 9 amino acids necessary for growing new and preserving existing muscle mass. Do not confuse EAA’s with BCAA. Although both are needed by the body and only provided via nutrition or supplementation.
EAA’s are a complete protein source, whereas BCAA are not. Research indicates that EAA’s are best used as part of your pre-workout routine, while BCAA’s are most beneficial post workout due to their higher doses.
Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) are the 9 amino acids that the body does not make and must get through food or supplementation. All of the EAAs must be present in the body to make muscle protein and promote muscle growth, recovery and repair.
WHAT’S IN IT?
Leucine an essential amino acid. Research has shown that Leucine’s major role is as a protein synthesis regulator and if you add Leucine to a high protein meal you can increase protein synthesis by up to 40%.
Many athletes add extra Leucine to their diet to help reduce the breakdown of muscles during training and to reduce the soreness of muscles after training.
Valine promotes optimal nitrogen balance in the body which supports protein synthesis (Protein absorption) and muscle hypertrophy (muscle gain). It’s considered one of the best workout support supplements to take during exercise.
Isolecuine is essential for a number of fundamental processes in the body and may enhance insulin sensitivity in the body thereby increasing the efficacy of essential and non-essential amino acid absorption.
Lysine is an essential amino acid therefore it must be obtained from the diet as the body cannot produce its own.
Lysine also increases the absorption of calcium so it may help to prevent and treat osteoporosis.
Threonine is an essential amino acid. Threonine is changed in the body to a chemical called glycine. Glycine works in the brain to reduce constant and unwanted muscle contractions (spasticity).
Threonine also is responsible for producing tooth enamel, collagen, and elastin in the skin, while aiding in fat metabolism in the liver.
L-Phenylalanine plays a key role in the production of tyrosine, epinephrine and norepinephrine (important stress response molecules), and the happy hormone dopamine which can help you learn and form memories. L-Phenylalanine is important for building muscle and repairing soft tissue and improves skin pigmentation with UV exposure.
Your body changes L-tryptophan into a brain chemical called serotonin. Serotonin helps control your mood and sleep.
5-HTP is a precursor to the neurotransmitter, Serotonin. Serotonin is the key to the majority of the benefits that supplementing with L-Tryptophan provides.
L-histidine to produce various enzymes, including gastrin, an enzyme which promotes healthy digestion and helps us actually absorb nutrients and minerals from the food we are so careful about eating.
L-methionine is an essential sulfur-containing amino acid that is soluble in water. It is a powerful antioxidant, assists in the breakdown of fats, and helps inactivate free radicals.
Directions of use:
We suggest at least (1) serving during training and (1) scoop immediately post workout.
For optimal flavor, we suggest mixing (1) serving of Grunt with 8-10 oz of water or your favorite beverage.
