Yamamoto® Nutrition presents PeptoBol® RECHARGE. PeptoBol® RECHARGE is a nutritional supplement intended for adult sportsmen who have had intense and prolonged physical activity over time.
Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after strenuous and prolonged exercise involving muscle fatigue and depletion of glycogen reserves in the skeletal muscles (*).
Hydrolysates of casein are derived from casein (milk protein known for its slow digestion) that has been subjected to hydrolysis, an artificial process of enzymatic digestion that provides for the division of peptide bonds of protein molecules making them smaller in size; these peptides are digested and absorbed more quickly at intestinal level, contributing to the processes of maintenance and growth of muscle mass, typical of proteins.
(*) The beneficial effect can be obtained via the consumption of carbohydrates from all sources with a total weight of 4g per kg of body weight, with an intake in doses starting within the first 4 hours of intense and/or prolonged exercise causing muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen reserves in the skeletal muscles, and ending no later than 6 hours after this exercise.
PeptoBol® RECHARGE contains PeptoPro® certified casein hydrolysate. PeptoPro® is a predigested protein that is completely water-soluble and contains over 60% of special hypoallergenic di-peptides and tri-peptides. These peptides are absorbed much more rapidly than intact proteins or even single amino acids. Immediate release of these "building blocks" to the muscles therefore promotes faster recovery and increased growth.
The advantages of PeptoPro® have certainly not gone unnoticed by the sporting elite, in fact this product is used by important teams, professional athletes and many other sportsmen, and is widely regarded as an innovative and revolutionary protein product.
PeptoBol® RECHARGE also contains highly branched cyclic cyclodextrin Cluster Dextrin® (HBCD). Yamamoto® Nutrition uses only and exclusively the original Cluster Dextrin® 100% Made in Japan.
HBCDs are a new type of glucose polymers that are formed by the reaction between the waxy maize with a particular enzyme, forming a cyclic structure.
The result is a glucose polymer with ideal properties of use: this means an average molecular weight of 160,000 Da with very low osmolarity and therefore rapid gastric emptying.
As well as being absorbed very quickly, HBCDs are gradually released into the blood stream.
Finally, to complement the product, the presence of Sustamine® makes the product 360° complete. L-alanyl L-glutamine, better known as Sustamine®, is a di-peptide that binds glutamine and alanine, resulting in a very stable and highly soluble form.
During particularly intense workouts, typical of bodybuilders and very serious physically stressful situations, the muscles release both types of amino acids in substantial quantities. If these concentrations are not restored, not only will the muscles themselves suffer, but performance, recovery, the immune system and other biological functions will also be affected.
That's why, after having clarified where and how they synergistically carry out their functions, this di-peptide "combination" finds its best application with bodybuilders and athletes who carry out intense, as well as prolonged activities that require a marked anti-catabolic action to protect the muscles, thereby encouraging protein and glucose synthesis as well as giving cells the chance to remain hydrated, therefore in an anabolic state.
