Infinite Force contains a precise blend of amino acids including your 2:1:1 ratio of Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine), L-Glutamine, as well as Carnosyn, the patented version of Beta Alanine, to support the rate of muscle recovery and assist in muscle glycogen replenishment to support overall athletic performance.*
INFINITE FORCE: MADE FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE.
BCAAs are the essential aminos: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. The combination of these amino acids makes up approximately one third of skeletal muscle tissue in the body. As the building blocks of protein, they play a major role in the process of protein synthesis. As food goes through the digestion process, the protein that the food contains is broken down into individual and short chains of amino acids; they are then minute enough to be absorbed into the bloodstream. After a training session, the body is in a catabolic state (breaking down of muscle tissue) with a deficit in protein synthesis. This is due to the MAPK signaling pathway that is activated post exercise, which is the body’s own way of signaling muscle growth. The purpose of this pathway is to increase protein synthesis, however it is not as effective as when combined with the BCAA signaling cascade. These two pathways act independently from one another, so when adequate amounts of BCAAs are consumed after a workout, the body enters a greater state of hypertrophy with a positive amount of protein synthesis.*
Beta-alanine is an amino acid that, with the help of another amino acid called histidine, helps form a compound called carnosine in muscle. Carnosine, in turn, is one of the most powerful pH (acid) buffers known to operate in muscle during intense exercise.*
L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid essential to the process of protein synthesis. L-Phenylalanine can be converted into the amino acid L-tyrosine and later to norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine. L-Phenylalanine may also aid in the regeneration of damaged muscle tissue, often caused by strenuous sports and activities that require muscular endurance.*
