When it comes to muscle hypertrophy, you can pretty much divide a successful program into three parts: training, nutrition and recovery. The great thing about supplements is that you can use them to enhance the quality of your training, fill gaps in your diet and enhance the recovery process. But it’s that last one that we’re going to focus on. Bullrush Recelerator is a comprehensive blend of ingredients to be taken during or after workouts to optimize the hormonal response to exercise, increase recovery and maximize performance. It only has 6 grams of carbohydrates per serving to maximize digestion and contains all the amino acids, minerals and antioxidants that go into signaling protein synthesis, replacing vital minerals lost from intense exercise and reducing recovery time so you can hit the gym again with the same intensity as before:
L-carnitine L-tartrate is an amino acid that originally became popular for increasing the availability of androgen receptors, which then leads to an increase in utilization of the testosterone produced by the body during high-intensity exercise. However, carnitine has also been shown in research to promote recovery from high-intensity exercise. In one study, published in the American Journal of Physiology, Endocrinology and Metabolism, l-carnitine l-tartrate was shown to improve every marker of recovery the researchers examined.
Branched-Chain Amino Acids
The BCAAs are readily used by the body during high-intensity exercise, and replacing them not only stops muscle catabolism but also assists protein synthesis post-exercise. This is common knowledge for many bodybuilders, but what they may not know is that BCAAs can be used as a fuel source for bodybuilders on low-carb diets. The BCAAs are the first amino acids broken down and converted to blood sugar (glucose) for energy when carbohydrates are no longer available.
Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid and is the most abundant amino in the body. It aids in nitrogen retention (which is important for muscle building), and research has repeatedly shown glutamine to be effective for expediting recovery from exercise and for supporting the immune system.
Any time you sweat, you’re losing minerals. ZMA, which stands for zinc magnesium aspartate, is a mineral complex formulated based on research that found that many diets were below the Recommended Dietary Allowance standard for zinc and magnesium. Because these minerals are lost during exercise, it is even more important to supplement with them after workouts. ZMA also contains vitamin B-6, which increases absorption of these minerals.
Electrolytes are electrically charged ions that include sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate and sulfate. They are important because they help carry electrical impulses that aid in nerve impulses and muscle contractions. They are also lost via sweating, and electrolyte loss can be related to a decrease in sports performance.
Antioxidants reduce free-radical damage and improve overall health, and research has proved them to be just as effective in reducing muscle-cell damage and promoting the recovery and function of contractile skeletal muscle cells. One particularly potent antioxidant is N-acetyl cysteine. In fact, it is so highly revered as an antioxidant that it is used as a chemo-preventative agent for four different forms of cancer. Another powerful antioxidant is red-wine extract, which was developed as a result of research that showed that regular moderate consumption of red wine reduces the risk of coronary artery disease and improved heart health.
