Pure Electrolyte Energy Pre-Hydration Formula
Electrolyte/Energy formula provides a balanced mix of electrolytes and carbohydrate combined with Krebs cycle intermediates and tyrosine to optimize physical and mental stamina. It is available in a lemon-lime flavored powder for convenient dosing.
Electrolytes are vital cofactors for muscle energy metabolism and cell function. Suboptimal levels can compromise performance while optimal levels promote endurance and may lessen the perception of exertion during exercise. This formula combines sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium and magnesium to replenish electrolytes lost during exercise and to help retain hydration, particularly for workouts lasting longer than 1-2 hours. Maltodextrin and glucose contained in this formula provide pre-exercise support by providing rapidly available energy and helping to preserve glycogen stores during activity. Additionally, they serve to delay fatigue and help replenish glycogen stores post-exercise. Alpha ketoglutarate and malate are Krebs cycle intermediates, key substrates for energy production that help to maximize fat and carbohydrate utilization. Studies have revealed that alpha ketoglutarate, as a precursor to glutamine, may also help muscle protein synthesis and recovery. The amino acid l-tyrosine is a precursor to the catecholamine neurotransmitters, including dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. Research has indicated that l-tyrosine promotes mental focus under stressful conditions and helps physical endurance.
Calcium, magnesium and potassium are from the lime of rock. Citrate is derived from corn dextrose fermenation. Alpha ketoglutarate and malic acid are synthetically produced. l-Tyrosine (free-form) is derived from soy. Maltodextrin and glucose are derived from corn.
If pregnant or lactating or taking L-Dopa or thyroid hormone medications consult your physician before taking this product.
Dosage: Pure Encapsulations recommends 1 scoop mixed in 8-10 oz. of water 20 minutes before intense exercise.
