We all love a hard workout that leaves us sweaty, exhausted, and sore the next day. It means you got the most out of your workout - right?
Yes - but that isn't the entire story. To get the most out of your workout, you have to fully recover. Your workout burns calories, damages muscle tissue, and creates a hormonal response in your body to want to adapt to this new exertion level.
Basically - you worked your body to its limit, and it wants to adapt to get stronger so you can do more the next time!
But this can only happen if you allow your body the ability to recover. And to do this, you need to:
feed your body with proper nutrition - whole foods
get adequate sleep - around 8 hours
supplement where necessary - proteins, aminos, and necessary vitamins & minerals
You can learn more about each of these important topics by clicking the links in the list above, but for this article we will focus on the benefits of amino acids to aid in workout recovery.
So, what are the benefits!?
BENEFITS OF TAKING Amino Acids
- Reduce Muscle Soreness
- Improve Recovery from Workouts
- Support a Leaner Body
- Protect against Muscle Wasting
- Increase Energy Levels (stabilizes blood sugar levels)
- Increase Endurance & Delay Muscle Fatigue
This seems like a pretty awesome list, but not all amino acids are created equal. There are different types of aminos (vegan & non-vegan), premium vs economy, etc...
At Propello Life, we promise to provide the absolute best supplements to fuel your active lifestyle. Our aminos are made with vegan amino acids so you know you are not getting your aminos from bird feathers - yuck! Additionally, we source our aminos using the highest quality raw materials and the best manufacturing techniques.
What's the best way to drink our aminos?
We love them anytime, anywhere. You can drink them during your workout, after your workout, as a mid-day pick-me-up, or in place of an alcoholic beverage during happy hour if you wish. We like to drink them on ice with a good amount of water, but everyone's preference is different. Each of our three flavors is uniquely distinct and we love them all!
