Alpha PMX is gluten free and does not contain cows milk, Soya, or egg ingredients. Alpha PMX is suitable for vegetarians.
Sports Performance Nutrition Alpha PMX
Alpha PMX is a bottle full of nutrients can be very useful for physical training and athletics. Alpha PMX can be used before, during and after work-outs and athletic events. Both formulas contain a complete set of free form amino acids ( not hydrolyzed protein), a complete set of vitamins, mineral and electrolytes.
Nutritional support of fitness workouts and athletic performance, main ideas
Human action is the expression of complex and vigorous interactions of all body systems. A highly trained athlete demonstrates the impressive ability of the human body to work skillfully, hard and long. The basis of any exertion is the burning of fuel. Food supplies fuel in the form of glucose and other nutrients. Inside cells, mitochondria are the basic engines that consume nutrient molecules, release heat and store energy for the other functions of the cell. Muscle cells use energy to contract - the basis of all human activity.
During exertion, loses water and electrolytes through sweat and the lungs must be replaced. Neurotransmitters are consumed at a prodigious rate and must be re-synthesized out of nutrient substrates that are rapidly consumed. Several nutritional theories of performance enhancement have been advocated in the past several years. No products on the market have proven success in performance enhancement, but several of the best ideas have gone into the design of the Alpha ENF and Alpha PMX formulas. Bypassing digestion, both the Alpha ENF and the PMX formula allow the absorption of critical nutrients even during exertion. A serving of Alpha PMX 30 to 40 minutes pre-performance or workout is referred to as "nutrient prep". Further intake every 30 to 60 minutes during prolonged exertions replaces consumed nutrients. Post-exertion muscle growth and tissue repair can be supported with the same nutrient mix, taken 1 and 2 hours following a training or competition event.
Antioxidants are provided in generous quantities in Alpha ENF & PMX. Vitamin C, beta carotene, vitamin E and selenium scavenge free oxygen radicals. Cellular combustion can be compared to a wood stove, which needs adequate protection to do its job without burning the house down. As we burn fuel in our cells, some oxygen atoms are given an extra electron and become the radical, O2-. If O2- floats free of the energy engines, it may interact with and damage other molecules.
Cell membranes are vulnerable to O2- injury; damaged membranes disturb the function of the entire cell. Extra O2- reacting with DNA can make the code sticky and can cause mistakes in code reading or replication, resulting in cell mutation. The cumulative damage of trillions of random O2- encounters with critical molecules over many years contributes to accelerated aging and cellular dysfunction. Cells contain oxygen detoxification enzymes: peroxidases, superoxide dismutase, and catalases. The nutrients that combine harmlessly with O2- and are referred to as "antioxidants". Vitamin C is the cheapest and safest antioxidant in town. If you can raise the amount of Vitamin C in cells, you may soak up enough O2- to make a long-term difference. The effect of Vitamin C is enhanced if you present three other nutrient antioxidants alongside, Vitamin E, beta carotene, and selenium. You cannot take superoxide dismutase (or other enzymes) by mouth and expect benefit, since protein enzymes will be digested and not arrive at the intracellular locations where they can act in a meaningful manner.
Instead of proteins, free amino acids are provided. A complete set of the nine essential amino acids is complemented by 10 of the non-essential amino acids. Both Alpha ENF and Alpha PMX contain branch-chain amino acids; a higher concentration in Alpha PMX will enhance muscle action and growth. Alanine increases muscle performance by acting as the source of carnosine, a dipeptide, active in muscle and brain metabolism. Leucine promotes muscle growth, acting in concert with insulin. The other two branch-chain amino acids, isoleucine and valine, may also supply muscle fuel if impairment of glucose utilization occurs. Arginine has been effective in improving tissue repair and can be considered growth-promoting. The technique of amino acid proportioning is a frontier in nutritional programming for athletic performance.
The Importance of No Proteins
One of the therapeutic secrets of Alpha ENF & PMX is the avoidance of proteins or pieces of proteins known as peptides. Proteins are the most reactive molecules in food allergic disease. Staple foods such as milk, eggs, wheat, and meat contain proteins that frequently causes immune responses and are the basic problem in delayed patterns of food allergy. Protein powders sold as "body-building" supplements are also a source of trouble. Protein powders are often made from cheap proteins such as milk protein (casein, whey), egg white (albumin), soya proteins, or hydrolyzed vegetable proteins.
Alpha ENF and PMX avoid all the protein problems by providing a balanced set of amino acids - the real nutrients that we derive from proteins by digestion of food. Amino acids do not trigger immune responses. Free amino acids are much more expensive than protein powders, but freeing the immune system from protein challenge is well-worth the cost.
Some of these amino acids are not destined to be included in body proteins but will be used as neurotransmitters. Tyrosine and phenylalanine, for example, are converted to dopamine, noradrenalin and adrenalin. Trytophan is converted to serotonin. Other neurotransmitter substrates are not amino acids. Glycine itself is a major neurotransmitter in the spinal cord. Glutamate is another important amino acid - neurotransmitter.
Women have a larger surface area-to-mass ratio; lower bone mass; and wider, shallower pelvis compared with men. Women have more body fat, less lean muscle mass, a gynoidal fat distribution, a lower resting metabolic rate, and a lower red blood cell mass compared with men. Women have an advantage in dry heat, are more at risk for osteoporosis and have more knee problems with exertion. The difference in muscle strength between trained women and men is a difference in muscle mass size. A major problem occurring among female athletes is the misuse of restrictive diets to lower body fat for appearance and performance. The consequences include nutrient deficiencies, eating disorders, anemia, amenorrhea, premature osteoporosis and increased risk of injuries with prolonged healing time. The use of Alpha PMX can assist in total caloric reduction without compromising nutritional intake; the nutrient density (per calories) can be doubled or tripled when compared with food intake.
