Jarrow Formulas CLA contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a unique optical isomer of the polyunsaturated fatty acid linoleic acid. CLA is a lipid component of cell membranes and breast milk. Although dietary sources of CLA typically include red meat and dairy products, Jarrow Formulas CLA is derived from safflower oil. Two CLA 750 softgels offer the CLA equivalent of what is found in 38 slices of cheese. CLA has been shown in animal experiments to assist in glucose metabolism and enhancement/retention of lean body mass (muscle).
ZMA is a combination of Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B-6 designed to maximize absorption and to promote recovery from exercise. Zinc plays a central role in the regulation of cellular growth and tissue repair, as well as the maintenance of a healthy immune system. Magnesium is essential for the maintenance of electrolyte balance, energy production and normal neuromuscular function. ZMA is also often used as a recovery aid; most notably, studies show that ZMA helps the body achieve deeper levels of REM sleep if taken just before bed. I have found that ZMA makes a huge difference to my sleep quality. It is worth its weight in gold just for this reason.
L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine are commonly grouped together and referred to as Branched Chain Amino Acids, or BCAAs, because of their unique branched chemical structure. BCAAs are essential, meaning that they must be consumed through the diet, since the human body cannot make them from other compounds. BCAAs have long been used by strength-training and endurance athletes alike to activate muscle synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training.
Supplementing with glutamine can help maximize recovery after intense training by promoting energy repletion, maintaining a healthy immune system and maximizing your body’s buffering capacity against acid build up.
