Instantized Micronized L-Leucine - creates a positive nitrogen environment which is the ONLY environment that muscle growth can actually take place. OPUS’s® micronized L-Leucine is easily absorbed through the wall of the small intestine and picked up by the bloodstream for transport into the muscle cell. Micronized L-Leucine is easily converted into glucose and used as energy during activity and can also decrease the feeling of fatigue by blocking tryptophan uptake by the brain, thus allowing you to maintain performance for far longer. Micronized L-Leucine provides support to lean muscle tissue and provides energy, specifically when training intensely, and helps to maintain a positive nitrogen balance within the body. Leucine is referred to as a "limiting nutrient"; meaning the body needs to be supplied by a specific amount in relation to other amino acids to assimilate protein in the body. Leucine activates a major anabolic pathway called the mTOR pathway, which stimulates muscle protein synthesis. Without adequate L-Leucine levels, muscle fatigue and cannibalism takes place during intense anaerobic training.
INSTANTIZED BETA ALANINE
Helps activate enzymes responsible for generating muscle contractions. Supplementing with Instantized Beta Alanine can significantly delay muscle fatigue to help you squeeze out the last growth stimulating reps. Instantized Beta Alanine increases strength, elevates muscular endurance, allows you to train with greater intensity, & boosts intra-muscular Carnosine levels, which are used by your Type II muscle fibers for explosive movements like weight training and sprinting. As an anabolic fuel Instantized Beta-Alanine provides the stimulus to increase anaerobic and aerobic endurance and delays muscular fatigue, allowing you to push through every workout by providing the fuel to accelerate maximal workout power. Numerous studies confirm the ability of this amino acid to boost muscle strength, power and endurance. It does this by combining with another amino acid, Histidine, to form the compound Carnosine. Carnosine increases a muscle’s ability to contract harder for longer. This results in the ability to maintain your strength longer when you train thereby tearing more muscle tissue down and forcing your body to grow if provided with a nitrogen rich environment such as the environment MAGNUM OPUS® provides.
INSTANTIZED L-CITRULLINE MALATE
Is the amino acid Citrulline bonded to the organic Krebs cycle intermediary Malic Acid. Citrulline is heavily involved in the urea cycle in the kidneys, helping to remove the build-up of fatigue causing ammonia, and being converted to arginine in the process, which releases nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a second messenger in the body, helping promote blood flow and increase nutrient uptake to working muscles. Citrulline also promotes bicarbonate re-absorption by the kidneys which can help buffer against any negative change in pH that ammonia build-up can cause, especially during exercise. Instantized Citrulline Malate has many positive effects on exercise performanceincluding: 1) increased production of energy, 2) improved stamina and fatigue resistance, 3) improved recovery and energy levels, and 4) increased blood flow and amino acid delivery to skeletal muscle, leading to increased protein synthesis (muscle growth).
Is one of the non-essential amino acids and is used to help create muscle tissue and convert glucose into energy. It helps prevent the breakdown of muscle by boosting the body’s levels of Creatine, a compound that helps build muscle mass. Glycine is considered a glucogenic amino acid, which means it helps supply the body with glucose needed for energy. It also regulates blood sugar levels, making glycine supplementation very useful in treating symptoms characterized by low energy and fatigue. Glycine is a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and of major importance to the creation of protein, peptides and Creatine. Glycine retards muscle degeneration by supplying additional Creatine, a compound that is present in muscle tissue and is utilized in the construction of DNA and RNA. Instantized L-Glycine improves glycogen storage, thus freeing up glucose for energy needs. Recently, studies have shown Glycine to help promote deeper, sounder and more satisfying sleep without any morning drowsiness when taken daily.
INSTANTIZED CALCIUM AND SODIUM BICARBONATE
By lowering the acidity of the digestive process, OPUS’s® Pharmaceutical Grade ingredients are less likely to be subjected to as much damage, allowing a higher concentration of them to survive the gut and be absorbed through the smaller intestine into the bloodstream for uptake into working muscles. Bicarbonate can also buffer lactate and hydrogen ions formed during exercise allowing the hard training athlete to push through the pain zone. Additionally, having an acidic pH not only causes lower muscle mass, but can also lower plasma levels of IGF-1. Having an acidic pH is not conducive to building muscle. Oral administration of Instantized Bicarbonate increases blood pH (makes the blood more basic) in healthy adults, both at rest and during exercise. Metabolic acidosis (an acidic pH level) has long been known to promote protein breakdown and nitrogen excretion. In several studies, daily administration of bicarbonate— which acts as a blood buffer and reduces acidity— improved muscle power during intense exercise in healthy subjects.
The reduction in acid production resulted in less nitrogen excretion (greater protein retention) in men. This change in net acid excretion (the amount of acid being excreted from the body) was positively correlated with how much nitrogen was being lost; a decrease in nitrogen excretion is consistent with decreased net muscle catabolism.
Treatment with Instantized Bicarbonate significantly lowered nitrogen excretion. Therefore, using a blood buffer such as Instantized Bicarbonate is a way of reducing muscle tissue breakdown.
OPUS HYDRATING ENERGY BLITZ™
Krebs Cycle Acids - (Citric, AKG, Malic, Fumaric, Succinic) – These acids are intermediate compounds that are found in the Krebs’ cycle and are necessary to generate cellular energy for muscle fuel. Supplementing these essential Krebs’ cycle acids in the presence of nutrient cofactors can enable a partially completed Krebs’ cycle to go to completion. They can also prevent and remove the harmful byproducts that are generated from abnormal energy production in themitochondria. And they can stimulate a high yield of ATP from the mitochondria for muscle energy.
Citric Acid, is key player in the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, which is part of a metabolic pathway involved in the chemical conversion of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into carbon dioxide and water to generate energy. Citric Acid administration activates the TCA cycle and also the subsequent oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria thereby increasing the production of ATP. This reduces physical fatigue in hard training individuals and allows them to train longer and harder. Additionally, a low level of Citric Acid diminishes amino acid availability and requires supplementation to generate energy.
Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid (AKG) plays a vital role in the Krebs’ cycle production of energy. As a precursor of the amino acid, glutamic acid, AKG stabilizes blood glucose levels during exercise. AKG benefits the athlete by supporting protein synthesis, allowing for longer, more intense workouts, and by promoting healthy nitrogen balance. Studies of patients given supplemental AKG following surgery found a nitrogen-sparing effect and a reduction in loss of lean body mass. AKG helps reduce ammonia levels that may interfere with exercise performance. Studies have demonstrated that ammonia formed in the muscle, kidney and brain combines with AKG to reduce ammonia toxicity.
Malic Acid acts as a catalyst in the Krebs’ cycle to increase energy production from the burning of pyruvic acid. Malic acid also aids in exercise recovery by counteracting the buildup of lactic acid. Supplementation of malic acid has been reported to be beneficial in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by reducing symptoms of persistent fatigue, muscular myalgia and arthritic-like pains.
Fumaric Acid is the trans-isomer of malic acid that enters the citric acid cycle. It’s a byproduct at certain stages in the arginine-urea cycle and purine biosynthesis. It is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle used by cells to produce energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) from food.
Succinic Acid, like other Krebs’ cycle intermediates, is an entry pathway for other metabolites into the cycle and is involved in a variety of important biological actions. In addition to its enzyme activity, it combines with protein to rebuild muscle fiber and nerve endings, and helps fight infection. Individuals with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and athletes, who have chronically over trained,have shown low levels of succinic acid in their urine. Several amino acids are metabolized into succinic acid, providing a source of anaerobic and aerobic energy.
• Phosphates – (Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Dicalcium Phosphate)
• Phosphate supplementation improves endurance performance through three mechanisms:
1. Phosphates buffer the build up of lactic acid – lactic acid causes the burning sensation in muscles during intense exercise – allowing athletes to train at higher intensities before feeling the negative effects of lactic acid
2. Phosphates help to improve the delivery of oxygen to working muscles
3. Phosphates are used to make Adenosine triphosphate (ATP – this is the chemical form of energy within cells) and Creatine Phosphate (CP – an immediate energy store that is used to re-synthesize used ATP molecules) and therefore increase the chemical store of energy within cells.
• Vitamin B Complex – (Pyridoxine HCI (Vit B6), Thiamine (Vit B1),Riboflavin (Vit B2), Pantothenic Acid (Vit B5), Pyridoxine (Vit B6), Cyanocobalamin (Vit B12) The B Vitamins act as coenzymes, compounds that unite with a protein component called an apoenzyme to form an active enzyme. The enzyme then acts as a catalyst in the chemical reactions that transfer energy from the basic food elements to the body. B Vitamins have been recognized as coenzymes, and they all appear to be essential in facilitating the metabolic processes that are essential for life. These vitamins are essential for the breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose, which provides us energy, the breakdown of fats and proteins, which aids the normal functioning of the nervous system, muscle tone in the stomach and intestinal tract, and healthy skin, hair, and eyes. One of the most important B vitamins for BCAA utilization is Pyridoxine HCI (Vit B6). It is an essential co-factor that facilitates transamination reactions. This cofactor helps to drive metabolic reactions necessary for BCAA utilization and energy productionat the cellular level.
