Description

ProXtend
ProXtend is a “workout drink” which, due to its specific composition, can be drunk immediately before, during and immediately after training.
ProXtend is a tasty and easy-to-digest instant drink, designed for both endurance and strength athletes. ProXtendconsists of a strategic mix of “Waxy Maize” carbohydrates (the fastest absorbed carbohydrates on the market) and a massive dose of BCAAs, Glutamine, Citrulline Malate and Vitamins.

1) ProXtend, the ideal performance drink for endurance athletes

The waxy maize carbohydrates provide almost immediately available energy for blood and muscles. Research showed that training performance in cycling 23% was better in subjects using waxy maize versus subjects using other carbohydrates1. Waxy maize has a low osmotic value, which means it passes through the stomach wall twice as fast. In this way, waxy maize quickly enters the intestines, where it is digested and absorbed at lightning speed. Waxy maize is therefore the ideal carbohydrate source for endurance athletes!

Citrulline Malate ensures that ammonia and lactic acid (by-products of intensive training) are removed more quickly, so that you can train longer and more intensively. Citrulline malate supports aerobic capacity.
The third ingredient, glutamine, was added because during intense exercise the muscles consume large amounts of glutamine. These must be replenished as soon as possible, not only to prevent muscle breakdown, but also because glutamine is the main fuel for the immune system, which can be under pressure during intensive and long sports. In a study of 200 athletes, two groups were offered sports drinks. The first group was given a drink containing glutamine and the other a placebo drink. The group that received glutamine scored much lower on infections (81% no infections) than the placebo group (26% no infections)2. Glutamine also supports glycogen synthesis and helps to reduce acidification.
Being another essential ingredient in the formula BCAAs. During intensive training, the BCAAs can be converted via the liver into glucose for energy if there are too few carbohydrates available. During heavy endurance efforts, up to 15% of the total energy supply can come from BCAAs and these must also be supplemented if you want to prevent muscle breakdown. In addition, BCAA supplementation increases exercise time by 16% in long-distance runners3.
To support sporting performance and promote muscle recovery, Vitamin B3, B6, B12andVitamin C added.

2) ProXtend, the "Intra-Workout Drink" during strength training

ProXtend is also an “Intra-Workout Drink” that maximizes muscle building during exercise by leveraging blood flow to the trained muscle! The body pumps 15 to 20 times more blood to the muscles during exercise than at rest. Blood is the transport system that provides the muscles with all the necessary nutrients for optimal growth and recovery. The more nutrients that are pumped into the muscle, the faster muscle breakdown is avoided and the faster muscle growth can start. Athletes have long recognized the need for Pre- and Post-Workout nutrition, but by not feeding the muscle during training, an important muscle-building moment is overlooked. The best time to provide muscles with vital nutrients is during training when the blood supply is at its highest!

 
ProXtend contains only ingredients that are quickly and completely absorbed by the muscles: Waxy Maize, Citrulline Malate, the essential BCAA amino acids, Glutamine and Vitamins B & C. SynTech™ chose a massive amount of BCAAs of 7g, divided in the right proportions (3.5g leucine, 1.75g isoleucine and 1.75g valine)!
The key ingredients per serving
    • 28g Waxy Corn  – Waxy maize has a low osmotic value and so quickly enters the intestines where it is rapidly digested and absorbed. It provides almost immediately available energy for blood and muscles. This faster and more complete absorption ensures an efficient replenishment of glycogen stores during exercise (if taken during exercise) or immediately after. Waxy maize is absorbed twice as fast as maltodextrin or dextrose and ensures an insulin peak that is twice as large. This insulin peak ensures better transport of nutrients to and storage in the muscle glycogen. Waxy maize replenishes muscle glycogen stores faster and more efficiently than other carbohydrates, resulting in faster recovery, less muscle breakdown and better protein synthesis. Waxy maize improves training intensity and supports strength, resistance and endurance.
    • 2g Citrulline Malate – this is an extremely versatile ingredient. It is first and foremost an NO precursor. NO (Nitric Oxide) makes the blood vessels wider and more flexible and thus increases the amount of blood that the heart can pump and thus the amount of oxygen and nutrients that are supplied to the muscles. This greater influx is important to have optimal energy during the training and to get tired less quickly. That better blood flow also makes for a better muscle pump, and while the pump itself is short-lived, it's important for muscle growth itself: that "stretch" placed on muscle membranes triggers processes that support protein synthesis. Second, citrulline malate helps reduce the formation of ammonia and lactic acid. Citrulline Malate also helps improve aerobic exercise capacity and supports the post-workout recovery process.
    • 4g Glutamine – Glutamine is considered a semi-essential amino acid because in certain circumstances the body cannot possibly produce enough glutamine to meet the need, such as for athletes. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the blood and muscle tissue and participates in many important physiological processes in the body. Glutamine has an anti-catabolic effect and ensures a faster recovery of the muscles after exercise. Glutamine is also a powerful antioxidant: users also experience a much better resistance against colds.
    • 7g BCAAs – these 3 essential amino acids are crucial for muscle building and muscle recovery after training, as they activate protein synthesis. BCAAs are important for maintaining muscle mass and optimizing the glycogen stock in the muscles. Supplementation with BCAAs helps to reduce muscle breakdown during training. The strategic intake of BCAAs immediately before, during and immediately after training ensures a faster recovery, prevents muscle loss and ensures less muscle stiffness after strength and endurance training.
    • Vitamins B3, B6, B12 & C – athletes have increased needs for these water-soluble vitamins. Vitamins are essential for the body to function properly.
There is said to be a link between vitamin B and athletic performance. The B vitamins are used to convert proteins and carbohydrates into energy. They are also essential in the repair and production of cells (muscle cells). Researchers at Oregon State University discovered that athletes with a vitamin B deficiency can deliver less physical performance, recover their muscles less quickly and build muscle mass less quickly than athletes who do absorb enough vitamin B.
Vitamin C is also a water-soluble vitamin, necessary for the growth and repair of tissues. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant: it can block damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals can be formed during strenuous exercise.
