Cell is a new addition to our FA Core line, and is a highly advanced optimized preparation supplementing the diet with a wide range of creatines, high-quality amino acids and alpha-lipoic acids (ALA). Cell’s composition has been designed specifically for the most hard-training athletes, and is based on the latest research findings.

MORE POWER

The product contains a complex of creatines, including creatine monohydrate, creatine hydrochloride and tricreatine malate. Creatine increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3 g of creatine. Creatine is a very popular supplement in weightlifting, where its effects are well documented. It is responsible, for example, for increasing the concentration of phosphocreatine in the muscles, which directly translates into increased energy reserves for the body and improves lifting performance [1] [2]. The wide range of creatines used in the product provides multi-faceted absorption and better preparation performance. Advanced forms of creatine not only improve bioavailability, but are also carriers of other important active substances.

MUSCLE PROTECTION

The product has been supplemented with BCAA and L-glutamine, which are one of the most desirable substances in post-training supplementation. This has been confirmed by several studies that have indicated the importance of amino acids with branching side-chains (leucine, isoleucine, valine) in the protection of muscle tissue and the intensity of anabolic processes [3]. It is also believed that glutamine has a positive effect on protection against free radicals, and reduces the risk of infections [4] [5].

SAA COMPLEX

SAA complex refers to amino acids extracted from silkworm cocoons with a characteristic percentage composition of alanine, glycine and serine. Silkworm proteins have been used for centuries in traditional Chinese and Korean medicine. However, despite the fact that they have appeared in Western culture only recently and are mainly used in cosmetology, the importance of supplements based on these amino acids is increasing with emerging scientific reports about their beneficial effect on athletes. Studies conducted on mouse models and a group of athletes demonstrated that supplementing just several times a day with SAA increases strength, by moving the lactate threshold and raising the level of testosterone compared to the control group [6] [7].

MORE ALANINE

Cell Core contains alanine from the SAA complex, as well as its independent source, in the form of free amino acid. Under natural conditions in the body, alanine plays a role in the glucose-alanine cycle, which transports nitrogen between the muscles and the liver, providing a better supply of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles. [8] The preparation also contains taurine – a naturally-occurring biogenic amino acid in the body – which is part of many biochemical processes. Taurine has detoxifying properties and provides support for the functioning of most neurons. [10] [11]

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha-lipoic acid is another component that occurs naturally in the body, where it has the effect of improving protection against free radicals. As a result, the body is more protected from harmful effects, and this translates into a reduction in oxidative stress [9].
