Crystalline FFAAs are absorbed into the bloodstream and are available to the tissues within 20 minutes, requiring no digestion to be utilized. This ensures that the appropriate amino acids can be available immediately after exercise when the muscle is especially receptive to nutrients and blood flow remains high. FFAAs are not affected by other important factors that limit protein amino acid bioavailability: (1) the structural nature of the food -- as well as fat and calorie content (2) the cooking of the protein (3) the metabolic efficiency of the digestive system as influenced by genetics, age, overall health, specific diseases and illnesses.
FFAAs are hypoallergenic (extremely nonallergic). Many sources of animal and plant proteins cause allergic reaction. GHP Sport is molecularly pure and appropriate for the lactose intolerant and those who suffer a variety of food allergies. Protein toxicity is a common problem for athletes, especially bodybuilders who create serious liver and kidney conditions due to overconsumption and malabsorption of protein. To protect against protein toxicity, gHP Sport is used instead of protein, or as a digestive aid to improve assimilation of food protein.
To promote fat loss several FFAAs in gHP Sport increase the mobilization and circulation of stored fats in the body. Amino acids also convert fat to energy at the cell's energy source, the cell mitochondria. With many caloric reduction diets, gHP Sport provides not only fat burning benefits, but also a low calorie, low food volume source of protein with specific benefits to the muscles, liver and immune system critical to optimal health.
Specific amino acids, notably L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine prevent muscle tissue breakdown during exercise. gHP Sport's free form amino acids accelerate muscle tissue healing and growth by providing a specific amino acid profile where they are needed, directly in muscle tissue. The result is faster muscle and strength gains, as well as enhanced recovery.
FFAAs provide two of the bodies important energy fuels: creatine phosphate and adenosine triphosphate (ATP). These are non-carbohydrate compounds that provide a direct source of energy for power, growth and vitality.
