Sports Nutrition products are designed to improve athletic performance, speed up recovery times and enhance overall physique. Athletes use a comprehensive sports nutrition program to increase strength, endurance, agility, mental sharpness and for a more positive state of mind.
We offer high-performance sports nutrition for protein, pre-workout formulas, recuperation and recovery, weight gain, bodybuilding, creatine and post-workout formulas.
Protein is essential in building lean muscle tissues. Endurance athletes and weight lifters engaged in physically demanding resistance training have higher protein requirements than the general population. They must ingest enough protein to sustain muscle mass.
As a guideline for daily protein requirements*:
- General Health – 1 gram of protein per pound of ideal body weight.*
- Athletes and Fitness Enthusiasts – 1.5 grams of protein per pound of ideal body weight.*
- Bodybuilders – 2-3 grams of protein per pound if ideal body weight.*
Each type of protein consists of a combination of Amino Acids, which contribute to muscle tissue growth and repair. Amino acids also prevent muscle wasting (catabolism) during intense workouts. Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are especially powerful for muscle repair and growth. Research suggests that BCAAs are the most bioavailable amino acids for building and protecting muscle mass.*
Pre-Workout Supplements, taken 30-40 minutes before workouts, add power to your training regimen for a more effective workout. A quality pre-workout formula will increase motivation, energy, stamina, focus, strength and explosive force, for greater training intensity.
Recuperation and Recovery is just as critical as your training session in achieving your size, strength and conditioning goals. The most important nutrients are protein and amino acids. Creatine, an amino acid compound, is a nitrogenous acid that supplies energy to muscle cells, pulls in extra water and makes them look denser and fuller. Creatine supplementation enhances performance, improves endurance and speeds up recovery time.*
For healthy and effective Weight Gain, we offer a wide selection of supplements that typically combine protein, carbohydrates, fats, amino acids and modest amounts of vitamins and minerals. Keep in mind that whether your weight gain is muscle and lean body mass or increased body fat will depend on overall nutrition and exercise. Our Bodybuilding section includes muscle building formulas, testosterone boosters, anti-estrogen formulas, hormones and hair removal products.
Post-Workout Formulas will help with muscle recovery and muscle growth after a strenuous training session. These products help to replenish the body with essential nutrients.
At All Star Health, you'll also find other popular sports nutrition supplements, such as the herb tribulus terrestris, which has been studied for its effects on testosterone production, and ZMA, a natural mineral supplement that supports muscle recovery.* Research has shown that HMB is a powerful amino acid metabolite that helps to prevent catabolism (muscle wasting).*
