In the lead up to the launch of our first Intraworkout Supplement ION AMINOS, we wanted to share why the product is so beneficial as an ‘intra workout’ solution. This product will be the only blend of amino and electrolytes currently available on the market!! Check out the benefits below on electrolytes and aminos for the body and why we chose to combine them!
Why combine electrolytes and aminos?
Let’s start with Aminos. You may not know this but your body is made up of about 20% protein. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Virtually every cell process utilises protein.
So we NEED Amino Acids to function but how do we get them? Our bodies produce 10 of the 20 essential amino acids. We can also ensure our diet includes the various forms of protein. However it should be noted the body does not store amino acids as it does starch. If you are not consuming the relevant proteins daily, your amino acid levels diminish which can result in muscle depletion and damage.
A variety of the different amino acids help to repair muscle, build stamina during workouts, maintain our energy levels and regulate our blood sugar, reduce toxicity in the body and strengthen our immune system. And this is only the beginning of what they can do!
As for electrolytes, our body needs them for our cardiovascular health, adrenal health, diabetes and endurance during exercise. Put simply, electrolytes conduct electrical charges within the body that allow our cells to communicate with each other and perform essential functions.
The adverse effects of low electrolytes within the body include muscle spasms, cramps, nausea and weakness.
It is essential to maintain your electrolytes during your workout (especially if you sweat a lot) to ensure a healthy balance.
The power of combing the two for the ultimate Intra Workout Solution
As we mentioned, this product should be taken during your workout to maintain a healthy balance of amino acids and electrolytes. This will help to make the most of your workout. We all know the benefits of pre-workout and post workout supplements. However sometimes intra workout supplements can be overlooked. We wanted to combine amino acids and electrolytes in one powder formula that you can easily mix with your water to drink during your workout.
The sooner you ingest nutrients and protein during your workout the better your body can repair. They also help to generate the energy it needs to make the most of your exercises. The key factor of intra workout supplements is that they don’t trigger mechanical digestions whilst you’re working out. Mechanical digestion is the breakdown of foods. It can trigger up to 25% of your blood to aid in the process – not great in the middle of a workout!
In summary, intra workout supplements maximise your performance during a workout. This is done without triggering digestion AND they work hand in hand with your pre and post workout solutions.
Our product will be available soon in two yummy flavours, Blackcurrent and Orange. You can mix the powder with water or in your shakes as you would with the Trilogy Super Fruits and Greens.
