Description

HELIX BCAA – “THE FUTURE OF RECOVERY”*

When you train hard, the ability to recover efficiently can become compromised. When this happens and you’re too sore to get back in the gym, your progress suffers. Since we know this all too well at Nubreed Nutrition, we designed Helix BCAA to not only accelerate your recovery and maximize blood flow but to also decrease your susceptibility to potential muscle aches and pains.

HELIX BCAA+ is the evolution of BCAA / EAA’s  utilizing “fermented” vegan friendly instantized aminos for rapid nutrient assimilation, superior bio-availability, and maximizing protein synthesis. All of this helps mitigate any catabolism and reduce potential delayed onset muscular soreness (DOMS). HELIX BCAA was designed to accelerate recovery and muscle growth in elite athletes by combining the highest quality of ingredients with the most scientifically advanced amino acid cocktails to catapult your athletic performance to the next level.

10:1:1 Instantized Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) – What separates the aminos in HELIX BCAA+ versus many other companies is the quality of the material and the rapid mixability of them. The truth is, many companies use low quality BCAAs and you can typically tell that because they really don’t mix well. Instead of going through some extra processing steps to ensure uniform particle size and processes which allow for “instantizing” of the amino acids, they skip it to save money. We don’t do this at Nubreed and pay more so you can get better results.

BCAAs are the backbone of any supplemental recovery program. They work by offsetting your body’s own breakdown of BCAA’s while training. Believe it or not, as you are training, muscle tissue begins to breakdown and when they break down, BCAAs are broken down into ammonia and other waste products. When you supplement BCAAs while training, you offset the BCAA loss by providing a working muscle an extra pool of BCAA’s to process and use as potential energy, etc. This is why BCAA’s help offset soreness and provide a stimulant free source of energy for working muscles.

L-LEUCINE (fermented)(plant based) (5,000mg)
It’s been shown to promote and preserve muscle mass, improve athletic performance, increase fat loss, stabilize blood sugar levels and support muscle recovery.

Can also be broken down directly into acetyl-CoA, making it one of the most important “ketogenic” amino acids in the body

Activates an anabolic pathway called the mTOR pathway which stimulates muscle protein synthesis. By increasing Leucine consumption the mTOR pathway is signaled and protein synthesis is increased. Simply stated, Leucine is essential for achieving a positive nitrogen balance and building lean muscle mass.

L-LYSINE (1,500mg)
Responsible for reducing any catabolism as well while you train and because of this, it can enhance recovery rates when combined with BCAAs.

While leucine is a driver for stimulating protein synthesis, lysine is a catalyst for protein synthesis. What this means is that you can’t have one without the other.

Research shows that lysine has other uses, such as improving athletic performance, boosting your immune system and promoting insulin secretion

Has been found to decrease the rate of protein degradation in the body, thus acting as a anti-catabolic compound. By slowing the rate of protein degradation, it is easier for your body to become anabolic after a workout and to recover and build muscle.

THREONINE (1,200mg)
An essential amino acid that promotes normal growth by helping to maintain the proper protein balance in the body. Threonine also supports cardiovascular, liver, central nervous, and immune system function.

Is known for aiding the digestive and intestinal tracts to function more smoothly, as well as for helping in metabolism and assimilation.

Helps in the synthesis of glycine and serine which, in their turn, assist in the production of collagen, elastin, and muscle tissue

L-ISOLEUCINE (fermented)(plant based) (500mg)
Widely recognized as an amino acid able to increase endurance and to help heal muscle tissue.

The primary function of Isoleucine in the body is to boost up the energy levels and to assist the body in recovering from strenuous physical activity.

Promotes muscle recovery, regulates the blood-sugar levels and stimulates HGH release.

L-VALINE (fermented)(plant based) (500mg)
The greatest benefits of Valine are experienced by athletes performing long-distance sports and bodybuilding, because this amino acid is important for the muscle tissue recovery and for the muscle metabolism, while increasing exercise endurance.

Important for everyday body functions and for maintaining muscles, as well as for the regulation of the immune system.

Aids preventing the breakdown of muscle, because it supplies the muscles with an extra glucose responsible for the energy production during physical activity.

PHENYLALANINE (200mg)
It increases levels of epinephrine, nor-epinephrine, and dopamine in the anterior pituitary. All three are important neurotransmitters needed for optimum operation of the nerve system.

Can be converted to the amino acid tyrosine, which is then used to produce important signaling molecules. These molecules are involved in aspects of your body’s normal functioning, including your mood and stress responses.

METHIONINE (50mg)
Methionine is a sulfur-containing proteinogenic amino acid, acting as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of different phospholipids. It is important in single-carbon metabolism and helps the detoxification in the liver.

It is a good anti-oxidant because it readily supplies sulfur, inactivates free radicals and helps with memory recall.

It is a precursor to cysteine, which is the amino that produces glutathione to detoxify the liver. It’s also one of the three aminos that are needed to manufacture creatine monohydrate within the body, an essential compound for energy production and muscle growth.

HISTIDINE (25mg)
Is responsible for keeping a normal pH of 7 in the body by shuttling protons to maintain an acid/base balance in tissue and blood. Histidine is also vital in hemoglobin, the molecule that helps to shuttle oxygen around the body.

Histidine is required for the growth and repair of tissues, red blood cell production, and protecting tissues from damage from radiation and heavy metals. It is especially necessary for the formation of myelin sheaths, which are layers surrounding nerves which enables faster transmission of signals to the brain

TRYPTOPHAN (25mg)
L-tryptophan supplements have also been studied for their effects on exercise performance. An International Journal of Sports Medicine study revealed that participants had a 49.4 percent higher increase in exercise time after taking l-tryptophan supplements. The researchers noted that this effect could be due to increased pain tolerance that occurred because of the supplement.

It is needed by the body to make protein and promote normal growth in infants and nitrogen balance in adults

EndruA+ Complex (2,250mg) (Enhanced Endurance Catalyst)

L-ALANINE (fermented)
A nonessential amino acid that supports a variety of your body’s important processes.

It works to relieve fatigue and mild stress symptoms, address low blood sugar concerns, and assist in protein-building.

Helps your body convert the simple sugar called glucose into energy you need, while eliminating excess toxins from your liver.

Helps protect cells from being damaged during intense physical activity.

BETA ALANINE
Increases endurance by increasing the buffering capacity of working muscle, fights off acidosis, delays fatigue, and increases endurance capacity.

Together with histidine, it produces carnosine. Carnosine is then stored in your skeletal muscles. Carnosine reduces lactic acid accumulation in your muscles during exercise, which leads to improved athletic performance.

Helps you exercise for longer periods at a time. A study in cyclists found that four weeks of supplements increased total work completed by 13%, increasing an additional 3.2% after 10 weeks

L-CITRULLINE (fermented)
L-Citrulline is an amino acid that plays an important role in nitric oxide metabolism and regulation.

It is converted to L-Arginine in the body to support L-Arginine and nitric oxide levels.

Increased production of nitric oxide (NO) promotes vascular dilation which improves oxygen and blood circulation throughout the body.

L-Citrulline is also expected to relieve muscle fatigue through ammonia elimination.

AGMATINE SULFATE (as AgmaFLOW(™)
It works by binding to the alpha2-adrenergic and imidazole receptors of endothelial cells increasing nitric oxide (NO) production which may assist in volumizing blood vessels

Helps reduce the expression of muscle related pain receptors. Training past normal pain thresholds is something elite athletes learn to do and now you can with Helix.

Activates imidazoline receptors: Agmatine is a strong imidazoline receptor activator. Activation of imidazoline receptors can cause an increase in beta-endorphins (opioid receptor activators that decrease pain and regulate behavior in response to pain, stress, or fear) from the adrenal glands

Stimulation of LH & GH Levels – In addition to the obvious appealing effect on overall body composition, the stimulation of GH and LH levels can also be beneficial for helping maintain a healthy lifestyle as we age. This stimulation of pituitary hormones may also lead to stimulation of other hormones such as IGF-1.

MYOSORB (pH)™ COMPLEX (2,000mg)

CITRIC ACID

Acting as a pH adjuster and alkalizing agent

Helping with buffering of ingredients.

Some research has shown that citric acid can help improve functions of the endothelium, which is a thin membrane that lines the inside of the heart and blood vessels and helps with vascular relaxation and contraction, blood clotting, immune function, and platelet aggregation. (6) It seems to do this by reducing inflammatory markers. The salts of citric acid, called citrates, can be used as anticoagulants (commonly referred to as blood thinners) due to their calcium-chelating abilities.

SODIUM BICARBONATE

Sodium bicarbonate has an alkaline pH of 8.4 and can therefore raise your blood pH slightly. Higher blood pH allows acid to move from muscle cells into the bloodstream, returning their pH to 7.0. This enables the muscles to continue contracting and producing energy.

Sodium bicarbonate clears acid out of muscle cells, helping restore an optimal pH. This may decrease fatigue and increase performance.

Some studies show that baking soda can help you perform at your peak for longer, especially during anaerobic exercises like high-intensity training and sprinting.

During high-intensity exercise, your muscle cells start producing lactic acid, which is responsible for the burning feeling you get during exercise. Lactic acid also lowers the pH inside your cells, which may cause your muscles to tire.
Baking soda has a high pH, which may help delay fatigue, allowing you to exercise at your peak for longer

MALIC ACID

In a study published in Acta Physiologica Hungarica, evidence suggests that malic acid supplementation may improve the physical performance of athletes. Researchers provided test subjects with malic acid supplements and noted increases in relative and absolute peak power and total work among sprinters compared to other groups. In addition, the distance sprinters ran increased.

Malic acid plays a vital role in the Krebs cycle where it helps turn carbs, proteins, and fats into energy.

Gluta-OX(™) Complex (600mg) (Enhanced Antioxidant Catalyst)
L-CYSTEINE
Has anti-aging properties due to its role in the process of detoxification and the synthesis of glutathione in the body, both of which result in the protection of several tissues and organs.

It works to relieve fatigue and mild stress symptoms, address low blood sugar concerns, and assist in protein-building.

Helps your body convert the simple sugar called glucose into energy you need, while eliminating excess toxins from your liver.

Helps protect cells from being damaged during intense physical activity.

N-ACETYL-CYSTEINE
A nonessential amino acid that supports a variety of your body’s important processes.

It works to relieve fatigue and mild stress symptoms, address low blood sugar concerns, and assist in protein-building.

Helps your body convert the simple sugar called glucose into energy you need, while eliminating excess toxins from your liver.

Helps protect cells from being damaged during intense physical activity.

GLUTATHIONE
Oxidative stress occurs when there’s an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the body’s ability to fight them off. Too-high levels of oxidative stress may be a precursor to multiple diseases. These include diabetes, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis. Glutathione helps stave off the impact of oxidative stress, which may, in turn, reduce disease.

One of the body’s most important antioxidants, which helps neutralize free radicals that can damage cells and tissues in your body.

Inhibits inflammation and leads to an overall strengthening of the immune system.

AstraGin™(25mg)

AstraGin™ has shown in over a dozen pre-clinical studies (cell, animal) to increase the absorption of amino acids such as Arginine, Lysine, Citrulline and Histidine in the small intestine. Other nutrients with statistically significant enhanced bioavailability include folate, glucosamine, curcumin.

Helps to unlock the potential of key nutrients by amplifying absorption into the intestine.

Increases energy levels by 18%

Increases steady state absorption rate of amino acids up to 66%
