Clean Products for Your Workouts: Pathway Clean Fit

Spread the love

workoutYou do not have to be a professional athlete or a body builder to benefit from sports nutrition supplements. Weekend warriors, obstacle course participants, runners, CrossFitters, and people looking to be healthier and get in better shape are all candidates for top-notch sports nutrition products, such as the Pathway Clean Fit line.

Pathway Clean Fit sports nutrition products are designed to enhance your workouts using only the cleanest, purest products. They contain no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners, are non-GMO, and are made with the highest quality ingredients for people who know that clean supplements are excellent for heightened performance. This line includes protein powders, carnitine, CLA and one of my favorites, BCAAs.

Branched-chain amino acids (or BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: valine, leucine and isoleucine. Essential amino acids are amino acids that our bodies cannot produce from other materials, and so we must ingest them regularly. Good sources are lean meats, egg whites, and dairy products. Pathway Clean Fit™ BCAA powder is also an excellent source. This water-soluble formula of BCAAs, glutamine and B vitamins mixes easily into water for maximum absorption. Pathway Clean Fit BCAA provides branched-chain amino acids that are essential to building and maintaining muscle tissue and have long been used by athletes and other active individuals to activate protein synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training or physical activity.

In addition to helping build muscle, BCAAs can be used by muscle cells as an indirect energy source during strenuous exercise without forming pain-causing lactate. Normally, when we perform strenuous exercise while burning other fuel sources such as fat or carbohydrate, a byproduct called lactate is produced. Lactate is the chemical responsible for your stiff and achy muscles the morning after a hard workout. Taking in BCAAs before working out helps to prevent the build-up of lactate and thus reduce or even eliminate the “morning after” problem. Most studies have also found a reduction in perceived workload after taking BCAAs. This may help you get the extra reps out of your workout that you’ve been aiming for!
