In the world of sports supplements, Yamamoto® has long been a leader in developing products to support the complex peri-workout needs of athletes. Nowadays, we know that the intra, pre and post training/competition phase is "critical" in supporting muscles and their reconstruction thanks to enhanced protein synthesis and rapid glycogen recovery, as well as boosting cellular hydration and combatting the "destructive" influx of cortisol. Thanks to the development and optimisation of the key raw ingredients (carbohydrates and proteins), which are now easier to digest and absorb than ever before, the latest generation of supplements is a real helping hand for athletes seeking maximum performance and looking to optimise their recovery processes without further taxing their digestive system. Thanks to newly designed intra-workout drinks, body builders, fighters, CrossFitters and other endurance athletes in search of a performance aid can reap the benefits of new raw ingredients with incredible properties. What's more, athletes who train at maximum intensity need maximum concentration and maximum efficiency in all areas: energy levels, metabolism, immune system and endocrine production.
AlphaTECH RECHARGE is a new targeted supplement designed to support athletes before, after and especially during training thanks to easily digestible ingredients with high bioavailability. The product contains salmon protein hydrolysate (ProGo®) that almost immediately releases crucial free peptides and amino acids into the bloodstream, ready to support the muscles. This protein hydrolysate, obtained from the protein hydrolysis of salmon, is very quick to digest and absorb, but its standout feature is its nitrogen retention "power", which is better than that of whey protein (which also has to be digested) and even whey hydrolysate. It offers unparalleled performance in terms of the rapid build-up of a very high concentration of crucial free peptides and amino acids, which can be stored and reconstructed by the muscles to promote more sustained protein synthesis.
The AlphaTECH RECHARGE formula is an even more versatile and powerful tool for athletes as it contains Karbolyn®, a "homopolysaccharide" which is another latest-generation carbohydrate with a high molecular weight. Thanks to its osmolarity, it can be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream as if it were a simple sugar, but without the subsequent blood sugar spike or crash. Karbolyn® is absorbed even faster than dextrose – 18.21% faster, in fact – but it also provides the constant energy supply typical of a complex carbohydrate. Karbolyn® is derived from various raw ingredients (potato, maize and rice) that have undergone a patented processing method called the "Enzymatic Milling Process". This enzymatic process gives the product the optimal molecular weight and solubility, allowing it to be very quickly absorbed into the bloodstream thanks to rapid gastric emptying without causing side effects such as bloating, meteorism due to fermentation, abdominal cramps or diarrhoea.
Karbolyn® and salmon hydrolysate are both extremely easy to digest and absorb, and the latter is rich in crucial bioactive peptides that are quickly and fully transferred to the bloodstream. The two raw ingredients work together in harmony, making AlphaTECH RECHARGE the ideal supplement for the peri-workout phase. It is especially effective during exercise, where it immediately starts helping the body to restore glycogen stores as quickly as possible without affecting performance by supporting endurance (even for prolonged efforts) and reducing recovery times, preserving muscle tissue with a subsequent reduction in post-training DOMS.
