Research looking into optimising the net utilisation for oral amino acid consumption concluded that a MAP sequence when compared against a standardised dietary protein source (such as meat and whey), resulted in a 99% response to Anabolized Amino Acids, which is also known as Net Nitrogen Utilisation (NNU) and only 1% of Catabolised Amino Acids.
This means that 99% of amino acids consumed when in the MAP ratio are utilised for benefits including but not limited to muscle growth, as opposed to under 40% for all other food sources. Utilising a MAP sequence means you need less total amino acid consumption for the same anabolic effects of a significantly larger protein source.
L-Tyrosine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is used in the brain as a precursor to the formation and release of adrenaline and dopamine and has been shown to enhance brain function when consumed acutely, resulting in greater focus and mood enhancement.
Following oral consumption, L-Citrulline avoids degradation in the stomach and is utilised to create higher levels of circulatory Arginine, which is responsible for increasing the ability of the body to create NO2 and increase peripheral blood flow.
This means more nutrients are being delivered into the muscle and similarly, more waste is being removed.
Schisandra Chinensis (10:1)
Schisandra is known as an adaptogen and has been used for many years for its benefits in enhancing performance, but also because of its apparent ability to reduce anxiety and stress through a reduction in cortisol as well as being anti-fatiguing.
