This new capsule-based nutritional supplement is loaded with Glutamine, BCAA 8:1:1, Arginine and Tyrosine. Ideal for protecting muscle mass and aiding in its recovery in both strength and endurance sports.

6.4 Amino + gets its name from the proportion (60:40) of Glutamine and BCAA 8:1:1 present in the capsules. Glutamine can be lightly considered in playing a part in recuperation which is essential for not only endurance activities in which glutamine levels in the bloodstream decrease, but also short, yet intense, activities where the production of ammonium can rise, stimulated by the anabolic capacity of the BCAAs or the essential amino acids that aid in post-training protein synthesis and prevent fatigue in races or long-distance training sessions. In order to enhance their effect, Arginine and Tyrosine have been added to the supplement.

In order to gain a better understanding of this product, it is important to understand an individual break down of its main ingredients:

GLUTAMINE – A non-essential amino acid that maintains an important presence within the body. In fact, it is the most abundant amino acid in our muscles where it can reach levels of 60% and also forms 20% of our overall total amount of amino acids in the human body. Among its main functions are:

   

  • Cellular proliferation
  • Protein synthesis regulation
  • Energy production
  • Gluconeogenesis
  • Filtering ammonium
  • Maintaining balanced acids levels.

Glutamine is also considered key in the process of recuperation as it can reduce levels of Creatine kinase (CK) and Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in the bloodstream.

BCAA – A combination of three essential amino acids – Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. Also known as branch-chained amino acids, they aid, mainly, in muscle recovery, protein synthesis and reducing fatigue in endurance events when the BCAAs have been oxidized to gain energy.

The 8:1:1 proportion contains an added amount of Leucine as it is the amino acid that initiates the protein synthesis process.

L-TYROSINE – helps produce the amino acids that maintain correct brain functioning and has a positive impact on both mental and physical energy levels.

L-ARGININE – it contains a stimulating effect and allows the veins to dilate which improves the nutrient supply to the muscle cells and, as a result, performance. L-Arginine also allows for muscle mass to increase and, at the same time, fats to be lost, therefore strengthening the immune system.

When to use:

This product is recommended in the following situations:

  • Weeks when training is particularly intense.
  • Prior to high-intensity training sessions.
  • Periods of fatigue or muscle fatigue.
  • Competition weeks to guarantee complete recovery.
  • Before and after strength training.
  • During long-distance training sessions.

Directions for use:

Take three capsules of 6.4 Amino + just before training and three capsules immediately after training.

During training, 6.4 Amino + protects muscle mass and avoids the use of glycogen within the muscles, as a result delaying fatigue and improving performance.

After training to speed up muscle recovery.
