pH alcalin ® is the result of applied research in the field of physiology, nutrition and biology, through which we could identify the mix of active ingredients, alkaline mineral salts (citrate salts and bicarbonate salts) necessary for the improvement of nutritional supplements for athletes GJAV.
The study of formulations of food supplements pet sports GJAV is characterized by a broad scientific bibliography (Ambrosialab Univeristy of Ferrara) , which has resulted in the creation of products characterized by a high absorption of the active ingredients (minerals citrates and bicarbonates) with the use of vegetable amino acids in the form levorotatory determining a PRAL (potential renal acidosis load) negative, that favors the restoration of proper acid-base balance.
GJAV sport supplements are formulated to enhance athletic performance, physical and mental health of athletes engaging in training. The products contain a mixture of alkalizing mineral salts, potassium, magnesium and calcium which has the function to improve the disposal of lactic acid and acidic metabolic waste, which accumulate in the blood and in the muscles during physical activity.
With the term acid-base balance is referred to one of the most important control systems of the organism, namely the set of all mechanisms and buffer systems that intervene in order that the acid-base ratio is maintained in equilibrium.
The human body requires energy to function and physical activity. The energy required to work, to walk, generally to live comes from the food we eat and the oxygen we breathe every day. For converting food and oxygen into energy, the animal organism produces acid waste (metabolic wastes) eliminated through urine, feces, sweat but also through breathing. Many of these acid metabolic waste products are passed to the excretory organs through the blood.
The blood, slightly alkaline, is able to neutralize defined amounts of acid metabolic waste products. Acid waste increasing must be neutralized in some other way. The alkalizing minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium and buffer systems ensure this function while maintaining the acid-base balance in the body.
In particular, in endurance disciplines such as running, triathlon and cycling on the road, where the production of lactic acid is very high intake of food supplements for athletes GJAV containing pH alcalin ® (Alkaline minerals) can lead to a strong physical and psychological recovery. The products are made according to the principles of Dr. Sander, Dr. Remer and Dr. Manz.
The very intense sporting activities, that require great energy expenditure, tend to alter the acid- base balance of the body, due to excessive production of acidic metabolites (e.g. lactic acid), with a consequent tendency to a permanent state of acidosis.
Supplements WORKOUT!, PROCOMPETITION!, PREWORKOUT! and POSTWORKOUT! contain a mixture of mineral salts, called pH alcalin ®, specially designed to confer to the products a significant alkalizing action without using bases containing sodium.
