Chocolate Countdown by Endurox
The Anabolic Phase is the 45 minute window following a workout in which your muscle machinery , the in the presence of the right combination of nutrients, initiates the repair of damaged muscle protein and replenishes muscle glycogen stores. Immediately after exercise, muscle cells are extremely senstive to the anabolic effects of the hormone insulin. This senstivity, however, declines rapidly, and after several hours, muscle cells even become insulin resistant. Insulin resistance is a condition that dramatically slows muscle glycogen recovery, repair of existing muscle and synthesis of new muscle.
Studies Show that the COUNTDOWN™ Formula:
_Increases protein synthesis 38% more than a protein supplement.
-Stimulates glycogen synthesis and replenishment almost four times more than a protein supplement and 128% more than a carbohydrate supplement.
-Reduces free radical formation, an important cause of muscle damage following exercise, by 69%.
-Reduces CPK levels, an important marker of muscle damage, by 36%.
-Maintains plasma glutamine levels following a resistance workout. Glutamine, the most widespread amino acid found in muscles, is essential for maintaining immune system function.
Mix 2 scoops with 12 oz of cokd water. Use within 45 minutes after a workout to take maximum advantage of the anabolic window.
