Goal: Improve Strength
Best Time to Take: 30 to 60 minutes prior to exercise
Foundation was physician formulated to optimize your muscles performance, increasing:
Muscular fatigue is caused by a decrease in muscular excitability, or the muscle’s ability to respond rapidly to a stimulating agent telling the muscle to contract. That stimulating agent is calcium. Unfortunately, exercise depletes calcium from muscle cells, causing a decrease in muscular excitability and an increase in fatigue. In fact, a 50% decrease in calcium can result in an 80% reduction in force. The key to fighting muscular fatigue is to increase muscular excitability. Increases in muscular excitability lead to an increase in the intensity of muscle contractions.
ATP + CREATINE
Supplementation with both creatine and ATP has shown great benefit for athletes. In a 12-week, periodized study in well-trained men, 400mg of daily ATP supplementation created robust improvements in muscle mass and strength performance. In fact, the ATP supplemented group gained over double the lean mass and strength than did the placebo group from week 0 to week 12. This group of researchers also found ATP to be a vasodilator that enhances the blood flow response to exercise.
Serious Athletes, Strength Competitors, and Bodybuilders: Athletes of all kinds are always looking for something to give them a competitive edge — whether for increasing power, strength, and muscle mass, reducing fatigue, or improving recovery, Foundation does it all. Casual Athletes and Weekend Warriors - Increasingly, everyday people trying to stay in shape are looking for supplements that can help them reap the most reward with the least effort. Because Foundation increases the work volume of a workout, it can help even the casual athlete make the most of time spent exercising.
RESPECTING OUR ELDERS
Aging Adults and Those Wanting to Improve Body Composition - Sarcopenia is the normal loss of 0.5%-1% of muscle mass every year after the age of 25. Exercise is the most powerful tool to counteract sarcopenia, and Foundation can help maximize the effects of exercise on muscle mass and strength by increasing muscle excitability, levels of extracellular calcium, blood flow, nutrient and oxygen delivery, and waste removal while decreasing muscle fatigue and recovery time.
