Cleans up fatigue-causing ammonia
- Prolongs endurance in ultra workouts and races
- Assists energy production
- Helps prevent muscle cramping
- Counteracts everyday fatigue
The Anti-Fatigue Caps Formula:
Potassium/Magnesium Aspartate - A well-known nutritionist says it best regarding aspartic acid, "Because aspartic acid increases stamina, it is good for fatigue and plays a vital role in metabolism. It is good for athletes and helps to protect the liver by aiding in the removal of excess ammonia." Studies (Agersborg and Shaw 1962, Hicks 1964, Gaby 1982) show this combination provides substantial benefit for the prevention of fatigue. Aspartic acid also combines with other amino acids to form molecules that absorb toxins and remove them from the bloodstream, aids the function of RNA and DNA, and helps to protect the liver. Additionally, the potassium/magnesium aspartate compound increases production of a key substrate, oxaloacetate, which is involved in energy production. Lastly, the compound provides the minerals potassium and magnesium to help provide protection against cramping.
L-Citrulline - L-Citrulline is an amino acid that is found plant foods such as watermelon, onions, and garlic. Citrulline helps in the removal of ammonia in the muscles and liver, and, like aspartic acid, is beneficial in alleviating fatigue. L-citrulline is a precursor for the endogenous production of l-arginine. Increased blood levels of arginine significantly boost nitric oxide (NO) content. NO acts as a potent vasodilator, relaxing the arteries, and allowing them to widen. Vasodilation is responsible for increased blood flow to tissues such as muscle fibers, which supports enhanced athletic performance and cardiovascular health.
OKG - Both ornithine and alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG) provide a readily available, non-ammonia-producing source of glutamine in the body. Glutamine is depleted at high rates during exercise but cannot be replaced with regular glutamine as it produces ammonia on its own. OKG increases the amount of glutamine in the muscle and also helps prevent muscle catabolism. Colgan writes, "Both ornithine and alpha-ketoglutarate act in the body as an ammonia scavenger."
Beet Juice Powder - We use it to give the capsule contents some color, helping to differentiate them from similar-looking capsules such as Endurolytes. There's more to that, however, as Beet Juice Powder is rich in nitrates, which also help boost NO levels.
Rice bran, which is used as a flow agent during manufacture, is a healthy nutrient-rich alternative to processing agents like stearic acid and silicon dioxide.
Although Anti-Fatigue Caps is designed primarily for ammonia reduction in long distance events, the nutrients in the formula are excellent for helping counteract everyday fatigue.
Thoroughly tested over several years in the most extreme athletic endurance events, Anti-Fatigue Caps helps remove fatigue-causing, performance-robbing ammonia. During extended endurance exercise the body accumulates excess ammonia from protein metabolism, which interferes with glycogen production, disrupting energy output. Anti-Fatigue Caps is a one-of-a-kind supplement combining two well-known ammonia-scavenging nutrients. Clean up the waste products of combustion, or you'll pay the price. To stay strong in multi-hour events, you need Anti-Fatigue Caps.
2-4 capsules one hour prior to training. This would provide an initial dose of 500-1000 mg magnesium/potassium aspartate, and 480-960 mg of OKG, an excellent dose at the onset of an endurance workout or race.
An additional 1-2 capsules each hour, at the two-hour mark and beyond, during extended endurance sessions is also suggested.
