Kore BCAA Pomegranate Blueberry Acai Description

  • Branched-Chain Amino Acid Formula
  • Advanced Electrolyte + Hydration Blend
  • Supports Enhanced Exercise Performance
  • Helps Stimulate Muscle Protein Synthesis
  • 30 Servings | 5 g BCAAs | 1 g Electrolytes | 0g Sugar

Kore BCAA is designed to propel your next workout. A unique combination of branched-chain amino acids, a hydration-supporting electrolyte blend and critical nutrients, helps keep you performing at your best throughout your session. In the research-supported 2:1:1 ratio, these essential amino acids have been shown to help increase muscle protein synthesis, and may also help reduce exercise-induced fatigue. While VitaCherry® Sport, a trademarked tart cherry powder, helps support a healthy post-exercise inflammatory response to facilitate muscle recovery.

 

BCAA - Branched Chain Amino Acids
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) — leucine, valine and isoleucine — are essential amino acids that support muscle retention and recovery through their active role in muscle protein synthesis and other metabolic processes.


Leucine is often considered the most instrumental of the three for building muscle, as leucine "turns on" muscle protein synthesis by activating a complex called mTOR, an enzyme that controls cell growth and metabolism in response to nutrients and other factors. However, due to their essential and synergistic nature, research suggests that valine and isoleucine are equally important. The three amino acids work together, supporting muscular energy production, body fat loss, and muscle building and recovery.


Electrolytes + Coconut Water
Electrolytes are minerals essential to normal body function. Key in athletic performance and recovery, electrolytes facilitate water absorption into the bloodstream. Electrolytes also balance blood pH and conduct neurological impulses and muscular contractions. Sodium and potassium are the primary performance electrolytes as they are typically lost in sweat during exercise, but magnesium and calcium, minerals naturally present in Coconut Water, are also critically important and may help improve hydration.


Montmorency Tart Cherry Fruit Powder (as VitaCherry® Sport)
Montmorency cherries have demonstrated unique benefits to athletes by helping to protect against exercise-induced muscle soreness and strength loss, while assisting in muscle recovery.


With a higher concentration of anthocyanins compared to other cherry powders,  VitaCherry® Sport, delivers the full complement of phytonutrients from whole U.S. grown Montmorency tart cherries. These natural compounds have been shown to work synergistically to boost antioxidant power and promote healthy inflammatory responses in connection with exercise.

A Beginner’s Guide to Taking Workout Supplements

Workout routine? Check, Nutrition plan? Check. Fitness gear? Check. So, what’s missing? Have you considered adding workout supplements to your routine? From pre-workout energizers to post-workout recovery aids, there’s support for just about every aspect of training. And options abound. You’ll find bars, gels, powders, capsules – even chewing gum – to supply your body with the nutrition it needs to help you meet your goals. Only problem is: if you’re new to supplementing, it’s hard to know where to start. Remember, pre-workout supplements are geared toward prepping your body for workouts, and post-workout supplements address your body’s needs during recovery time after exercising. Let’s take a look at the options and the benefits you can reap by adding certain products to your routine.

Pre-workout supplements

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)

Branched chain amino acid (BCAA) supplements are a top fitness pick for both beginners and seasoned athletes alike. BCAAs are known to support energy levels to lengthen your workouts while also helping to combat exercised-induced fatigue. Additionally, taking BCAAs before exercise may help to reduce muscle soreness post workout.

How to take BCAAs

BCAAs are available in powder form to add to beverages, or you can take BCAA capsules. They’re best consumed 30 minutes before your workout.

Nitric oxide boosters

This pre-workout supplement helps to support healthy blood flow by relaxing muscles that control blood vessels. This allows more blood to move through the vessels and into your muscles, supporting increased energy production.

How to take nitric oxide boosters

Take the recommended dose 30 to 60 minutes prior to your workout. Choose from nitric oxide boosters  in powder form or capsules.

Caffeine

Caffeine provides an energy boost, while also potentially increasing your intensity, muscle strength and fat loss. Taking a caffeine supplement that includes green tea extract can help to support your metabolic rate and burn fat.

How to take caffeine

Energy fizz sticks (just add to a beverage), gummy chews or tablets/capsules should be taken 30 to 60 minutes before exercising.

Post-workout supplements

Creatine

Creatine is an amino acid that naturally occurs in the muscle tissue. Taking a creatine supplement post-workout allows the muscles to recover faster and helps to reduce muscle soreness, promoting the ability to continue with exercise the next day.

How to take creatine

You’ll find creatine supplements in powder form or capsules. Take the recommended dose 30 to 60 minutes post-workout. My favorite way to take it is to add a scoop of powder to my post-workout shake.

Protein powder

Whether you choose whey, casein or plant-based protein, this nutrient helps to repair muscle fibers and supports muscle growth. Not sure which type of protein to choose? To note: whey protein absorbs quickly, casein take several hours to be absorbed, and plant protein falls somewhere in the middle. Find a protein powder that best fits your fitness routine and health goals.

How to take protein powder

Drink a protein-enhanced smoothie or shake within an hour after exercising. You can combine protein powders into one beverage to experience the benefits of each.

Glutamine

Glutamine is another amino acid that serves as a building block for protein. Taking a glutamine supplement after a workout may decrease muscle soreness and reduce fatigue.

How to take glutamine

Powder or tablets can be taken 30 to 60 minutes post-workout. I suggest an unflavored glutamine powder to add to your protein shake. Carlson L-Glutamine Powder | Vitacost.com/blog
