Amino-Bulk is combination of high quality proteins, amino acids, multi-vitamins and antioxidants designed to aid in recovery for
those competing in performance competition or intense exercise.
For those horses lacking topline condition, Amino-Bulk acts as a superior muscle builder.
Effects of Amino-Bulk:
One of the ingredients of Amino-Bulk is Colostrum. It has been very well established that Colostrum consists of high amounts of
IGF-1 (Insulin Growth Factor 1) and recently discovered IGFBP-3 (Insulin Growth Factor Binding Protein 3). There are many scientific studies which support the supplementation of colostrum towards exercise performance. A 2006 study investigated the effect of low dose supplementation on exercise performance in cyclists over a 10 week period with 5 days of high intensity training . The study found that consecutive days of high intensity training, enhanced muscle glycogen and prevented and/or delayed fatigue .
Although the effects of colostrum supplementation are evident in this study, they did not take effect until week 8 or beyond. For that reason alone it is highly recommended that continuous daily supplementation is required for the desired effect.
Hemp protein meal is a legal supplement worldwide as it is only a derivative of hemp seeds. It is classed as an extremely potent antioxidant . Antioxidants of this calibre reject the enzymes which attempt to break down the muscle fibres. The effective rejection of these enzymes allow the muscle mass to grow instead of just maintaining the normal mass.
The addition of Glutamine adds to this supplement as it is well known for assisting in the production of protein synthesis and
is a source of cellular energy. It has been proven that Glutamine supplementation is beneficial to athletically and clinically stressed horses .
