Leuc-X4 BCAA Technology™. Superior 4:1:1 Ratio for Superior Results!
BCAAs…those are “just amino acids” right? If they are under-dosed they certainly are. Axcell’s™ BCAAs consist of leucine, isoleucine, and valine, and can be unimaginably powerful when dosed properly. Intake of BCAAs exerts an impressive protection effect on muscle tissue, reducing the elimination of BCAAs in muscle tissue by 30% post exercise (1). Additionally, BCAAs can also reverse the destructive muscle wasting effects of an immune system cytokine called TNF-alpha (Tumor necrosis factor alpha)(2). While TNF-alpha is generally elevated in those who are sick, elevated levels of TNF-alpha are also seen in athletes who are over trained. Needless to say, BCAAs are powerful!
"Axcell™ utilizes FOUR TIMES the amount of leucine compared to isoleucine and valine provided. Why is that so important? It’s no secret that anabolic hormones can trigger a BIG anabolic growth response in muscle. However, a hormonal imbalance is created that can result in many unwanted negative side effects. "
Other manufacturers of BCAA formulas utilize a 2:1:1 ratio of leucine to isoleucine and valine. In order to achieve the same results with a lower 2:1:1 ratio, you’d need to increase your servings, thereby increasing your costs! Axcell™ utilizes FOUR TIMES the amount of leucine compared to isoleucine and valine provided. Why is that so important? It’s no secret that anabolic hormones can trigger a BIG anabolic growth response in muscle. However, a hormonal imbalance is created that can result in many unwanted negative side effects. With leucine’s profound effects on igniting protein synthesis (3), leucine can activate the same anabolic signals normally activated by hormones WITHOUT imparting negative androgenic side effects!
The powerful effects of leucine begin with its ability to flood the muscle cell with a greater concentration of amino acids. This is accomplished through leucine’s ability to up-regulate System A Transporters, a similar effect of insulin growth factor-1 (IGF-1). A greater number of these transporters become available on the muscle cell membrane surface, allowing for amino acids to cascade inside the muscle (4)! Leucine then drives deep into the muscle cell where it switches on profound anabolic effects without disrupting hormones! Leucine stimulates protein synthesis through the commanding genetic regulator responsible for massive muscle growth, mTOR (5,6)! mTOR, short for Mammalian Target of Rapamycin, regulates increased muscle cell growth and protein synthesis. Flip this key anabolic growth switch into the ON position, and you’ll ignite muscle growth instantly!
Supercharge your Energy with Branch Chain Amino Acids!
In addition to leucine’s myotrophic effects on muscle, BCAAs also serve as an important fuel source for energy, stamina, and endurance, and do so through a variety of pathways. During exercise your muscles BCAA supply becomes the metabolic victim of a massive effort to generate energy. Yes, your BCAAs are ripped apart and destroyed at a devastating rate, as they are metabolized directly inside the muscle cell to produce fuel for the Kreb’s Cycle. The Krebs Cycle is part of a metabolic pathway of macronutrient destruction that chemically converts proteins, carbohydrates, and fats into carbon dioxide and water to produce energy. By providing your body with Axcell’s superior 4:1:1 ratio of BCAA’s, you can provide your hard working muscles with not only more fuel to power through gruesome workouts, but also iron-clad protection against the destruction of hard earned muscle mass!
BCAAs further contribute to the enhanced feelings of energy, endurance, and stamina by decreasing the amount of tryptophan that is delivered to the brain. The amino acid tryptophan is commonly found in turkey and is infamous for making people sleepy. Tryptophan is converted into serotonin in the brain, which creates a feeling of tiredness. As your BCAA levels diminish from exercise, more tryptophan will become present in your blood plasma than BCAAs. Why is that important? Well, both tryptophan and BCAAs compete for the same transporter that carries them both to the brain. Thus more tryptophan is carried to the brain, creating a feeling of tiredness. Ever get tired while working out? Utilization of Axcell’s™ superior 4:1:1 ratio of BCAAs will give YOU the ability to maintain optimal levels of energy for the complete competitive advantage over your competition.
Advanced Fatigue Opposition, or AFO-x Technology™ was strategically designed to provide you with additional and advanced opposition against the crippling affects of fatigue-induced exercise failure. AFO-x Technology™ functions on a multitude of levels where it adds to the powerful anti-fatigue properties of BCAAs, and will be pivotal for taking your performance to that next level.
Fatigue is a crippling and limiting force that blunts maximum human performance and anabolic activation of muscle fibers. As you crank out the sets and reps, fatigue perception and toxins such as ammonia, lactic acid, and other nitrogen-based byproducts begin to accumulate inside your blood stream. As concentrations grow, these fatigue toxins wage a full scale brutal assault that results in a devastating loss of power, stamina, performance, and the ability to push forward. Ironically, it is at this very point when fatigue sets in, that you must overcome it in order to stimulate new muscle growth and force the body to adapt to a higher performance capability. So how do you get past this juggernaut of a roadblock?
Citrulline Malate is a combination of two compounds that are naturally occurring in the body. Citrulline is a nonessential amino acid produced from glutamine. Citrulline plays a role in the Urea Cycle, a cycle that converts nitrogen based wastes, like ammonia, into urea to be removed from the body. So how does this benefit YOU? Ammonia and lactic acid build up can lead to severe fatigue, and excessive ammonia can be heavily toxic. When fatigue sets in, athletic performance is hindered and grinds to a halt! Malate acts as an intermediate in the Krebs cycle and is dehydrogenated to produce oxaloacetate. When oxaloacetate concentration levels decline, so too does the production of aerobic ATP, thus leading to lower levels of energy and performance.
Citrulline Malate plays a crucial role in crushing the competition. When fatigue sets in, the mind can be a greater adversary to overcome than the weights. However, supplementation with Citrulline Malate has proven to significantly reduce the feelings of fatigue! With ATP being a major source of fuel during exercise, Citrulline Malate dramatically enhances the rate of oxidative ATP production during exercise by 34%! Citruilline Malate can also increase the rate of phosphocreatine replenishment after exercise by 20% (7). And Citrulline Malate can also dilate your blood vessels the size of garden hoses by elevating blood plasma levels of endogenous L-arginine, thereby increasing levels of Nitric Oxide!
L-taurine, the second component of AFO-x Technology™, is the second most abundant amino acid found in muscle tissue. It is involved in numerous metabolic reactions inside the body including its beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system, functioning as a neurotransmitter (8), and maintaining cell membrane stability. Taurine’s contributions to AFO-x Technology™ are wide ranging and highly beneficial. First, taurine is one of the most abundant amino acids found in the heart muscles. It is very beneficial to the heart and cardiovascular system (9), a system that is vital to any level of athletic performance. Taurine can also act as a potent antioxidant (10). During exercise, consumption of oxygen can increase by a factor greater than 10 (11). This results in a large increase of oxidant production, resulting in damage contributing to muscular fatigue both during exercise and post workout. In fact, supplementing with taurine has been shown to prevent oxidative stress created by exercise (12). And, some evidence suggests that taurine may even be necessary for skeletal muscle to function normally (13)!
The final component of AFO-x Technolgoy™ is Glucuronolactone (aka DGL), a naturally occurring compound created by the metabolism of glucose in the liver. Contributing to AFO-x Technology™ is DGL’s effect on glycogen. DGL may have a significant effect on the synthesis of glycogen while simultaneously protecting an athlete’s glycogen stores (14). Glycogen is the primary source of energy for the body, allowing muscles to ferociously contract over and over without fatiguing. The more glycogen that is synthesized and retained, the greater the energy resources YOU will have to call upon, thus delaying the onset of fatigue. DGL also has many other beneficial effects for the athlete. DGL is believed to have protective effects on the liver, improving the physical state and function of the liver while reducing damaging effects (14). It is an important structural component of nearly all connective tissues, including tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Therefore it may help to improve the elasticity and tensile strength of cartilage, as well as help protect the tendons and ligaments of hard training athletes. Greater protection and maintenance of these connective tissues allows for superior and prolong performance. And DGL may also help hormones to be freed up in the liver, allowing for greater use of endogenously produced hormones (15,16).
