Thanks to the latest advances in industrial production of carbohydrates, CYCLO PROTM has been developed combining a novel type of ultrafast digestion dextrin, Cluster DextrinTM, BCAAs of the best quality and KyowaTM Glutamine.
Starlabs CYCLO PROTM provides the perfect ingredients to generate an unique formula that will give you a product of the highest performance, either during or after your workout, to promote a reduction in fatigue and a prolonged energy intake during training, or to improve muscular and energetic recovery of the best quality after.
Cyclodextrins are produced by degradation of amylopectin and they have common characteristics with starches (amylopectins), but they have added benefits.
Cluster DextrinTM has relatively long side chains of glucose that are considered to adopt a helical conformation. Such helical structures can form inclusion complexes with guest molecules such as organic acids. This results in a superior performance to other dextrins.
Through different studies it has been confirmed that consuming cyclodextrins increases endurance and athletic performance.
The body uses BCAAs to repair injured tissues, accelerating recovery and preventing muscle rupture during exercise. They are also important to develop and gain muscle mass.
Leucine is necessary for skin, bones and muscle recovery, and many studies indicate that is responsible for increasing protein synthesis, improving muscle building and delaying catabolism). Valine supports the transport and maintenance of the nitrogen balance (essential for muscle development); Isoleucine helps to the increase of energy and is necessary to form hemoglobin (the type of blood cell that carries oxygen through the body).
In some special circumstances, Glutamine
can become conditionally essential.
During intense training, for example, the body can lose up to 50% of its glutamine levels, being unable to synthesize enough to meet their needs. Because of this, an introduction of glutamine during training improves the anti-catabolic effect, protein synthesis and cellular hydration, reducing thus, exhaustion during training.
Osmovol Hydration Complex
is essential to maintain the body’s water balance: the higher the intensity of exercise and the higher the temperature in the environment, the higher the loss of this mineral.
Sweat contains water as the first compound, but it has a great concentration of Sodium
that is eliminated when we are facing intense or long lasting exercises. When we sweat, we are losing about 1-1,5 grams of salt (NaCl)
for every liter of sweat, which causes a decrease in our physical performance (increasing the risk of cramping or deficiencies in muscle contraction). It is crucial, therefore, to recover this element after the exercise.
