Energy and Recovery Sports Supplements Explained

energyThis week’s category of the week is Energy and Recovery.
When participating in any sport, exercise or fitness-related activity for long periods of time, you need to ensure that you are feeding your muscles at regular intervals to help optimise performance and stop unwanted cramping.
Whether it’s taking on a triathlon or running a marathon, having the correct nutritional support is crucial. Understanding the importance of this, at Bio-Synergy, we proudly support charities and events, including Cancer Research UK.
As well providing your body with energy before your training session, it is equally as important to fuel your body with sufficient amounts of energy during your event also.

“When participating in an endurance race, if possible, stop every 30-40mins during the event for some food/drink to keep the energy levels up. To help me put in an Olympic performance, I power up with ActiVeman Energy Charge and Bio-Synergy Pure Energy,” said ActiVeman ambassador and two-time Olympic Gold medallist, James Cracknell.
Similarly, it is important to provide your body with energy after exercising. In addition to consuming protein, taking in simple carbohydrates is essential, too. This is critical because it starts the whole recovery/muscle growth process. Following a hard workout or tough endurance race, your body is severely depleted of glycogen and glucose.

At Bio-Synergy, we have formulated all our energy and recovery supplements to make sure that you are getting the energy you require over long durations of time making sure you have what it takes to take it to the next level while the competition around you begins to fade.
Choosing the right energy and recovery supplement, or range of supplements is not an easy task. However, we have selected four products to help you make it happen.
ActiVeman Energy Charge
Don’t be a Wellman, be an ActiVeman.
ActiVeman Energy Charge contains perhaps the most sophisticated nutritional profile of any pre-workout sports supplement on the market. Designed taken before your workout or event, James Cracknell never enters an endurance race without out it.
ActiVeman Energy Charge, unlike many other pre workouts, is free from any artificial ingredients, and the energy source is from agave, which is the lowest of naturally occurring GI carbohydrate.

Ingredients include magnesium to reduce fatigue, improve energy levels and muscle function as well as protein absorption/synthesis. AAKG is also included to increase nitric oxide levels to improve muscle protein synthesis allowing you to train harder and gain strength.
Energy is heightened further by the inclusion of Iron. Iron has numerous benefits including improving energy, the flow of oxygen, reduction in fatigue and even brain function.
Whether you want to achieve a new personal best, or give yourself the extra boost you need after a gruelling, tiring day, rely on ActiVeman Energy Charge to power up your performance ­­all the way to the finish line.
As well as the more traditional marathons, endurance races and workouts, Energy Charge is a great sports supplement for more extreme events such as OCR races. Be sure to read this exclusive article on OCR races and how to train for them.

essential sports fuelWith the goals of professional rugby players at the forefront of its design, Bio-Synergy Essential Sports Fuel is packed with the highest quality whey protein to assist lean muscle growth and recovery as well as l-glutamine to aid muscle repair.

Each serving contains Beta-Hydroxy-beta-methylbtyric acid, which has been shown in studies by Nissen et al to increase lean muscle and prevent muscle breakdown.
Another effective source of recovery is branch chain amino acids (BCAAs). Your body needs essential amino acids in your daily diet because your body cannot make them. If you do not get essential amino acids in your diet, proteins break down, resulting in muscle loss and problems with the repair.
If you want to make it happen and fuel your muscles to grow and recover, rely on the industry’s most effective all-in-one recovery sports supplement: Bio-Synergy Essential Sports.
