CARNITINE CORE

PRODUCT CATEGORY:

Weight loss

SERIES:

Core

CARNITINE CORE SUMMARY:

Carnitine Core assists in transporting fats into the mitochondria (the cells’ “power plant”) to make this process more effective. This amplifies an athlete’s ability to turn fat into muscular energy.  While the body produces carnitine naturally, many athletes supplement additional quantities of the amino acid.

CARNITINE CORE BENEFITS:
  • Helps utilize fat for energy
  • Helps reduce body fat
  • Helps athletic performance and endurance
  • Improves blood flow to working muscles
  • Amplifies metabolism
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING CARNITINE CORE:

Individuals that want to maximize weight loss from exercise.

KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN CARNITINE CORE:

Acetyl-L-Carnitine:

Acetyl-L-Carnitine is involved in energy production and cell protection.  It may also increase muscle cells (mitochondria) potential to burn fat.[1]

L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate:

This form of carnitine is bound to L-tartrate and used to facilitate absorption of L-Carnitine.  It is typically used to improve physical performance and power output.[2]

Propionyl-L-Carnitine:

This form of carnitine may alleviate pain caused by too little blood flow to muscles during exercise and other blood flow issues.[3]

Raspberry ketones:

Raspberry ketones may exert fat burning effects on various areas of the fat cell when taken in high doses.[4]

PRODUCT USAGE:

Take 2 capsules 1-3 times daily with or without meals.

FITMISS BCAA

PRODUCT CATEGORY:

Pre workout, post workout, recovery

BCAA SUMMARY:

BCAAs are a staple in the lives of many athletes and active individuals, accounting for nearly 1/3 of the amino acids in muscle protein. They play key roles in the repair and growth of muscle tissue. FitMiss® BCAA is the perfect combination of BCAAs to increase lean body mass and even aid with fat loss.

Isoleucine:

Isoleucine helps create the energy (glucose) your body burns for energy.[3,4]

Valine:

Like leucine and isoleucine, valine encourages muscle tissue growth while providing energy from energy (glucose) creation. It also acts as a facilitator for normal growth and a reparative agent for various tissues in the body.[5,6,7]

PRODUCT USAGE:

As a dietary supplement, consume one serving (1 scoop) of FitMiss BCAA mixed into 6-8 oz. of cold water, one to three times daily.  For optimal use: take between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, during workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.
