This nutritious meal replacement drink makes for the ultimate athletic sports drink.
Popular with professional and endurance athletes, cyclists, runners, swimmers, triathletes, etc.
It may also benefit cancer and AIDS patients as well as older individuals trying to maintain or increase lean body mass.
Used by endurance athletes (cyclists, runners, triathletes, etc.), cancer and AIDS patients as well as geriatric folks trying to maintain or increase lean body mass.
The following is an explanation of what's in SPIZ, and why you should use it.
1. Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Concentrate
- Whey protein concentrate (WPC) is the highest-quality currently available in supplemental form.
- Hydrolyzed WPC is WPC that has been partially broken down so that it is more readily assimilated by the body.
This is especially beneficial to the athlete who is taking the product during exercise when the digestive system is not functioning at full capacity.
- Most products contain just carbohydrates when in reality the body utilizes protein for energy during exercise, up to 15% of total energy expenditure.
Protein is also very important after exercise for not only protein metabolism, but also glycogen resynthesis.
- Branched chain amino acids-(BCAA's) have documented anabolic effects (promoting muscular growth) as well as anti-catabolic activity (preventing muscle breakdown). SPIZ has a high concentration of BCAA-to-tryptophan, which compete with each other to cross the blood-brain barrier. Keeping brain trytophan levels down will reduce brain serotonin levels, preventing CNS-induced fatigue and promoting a wakeful state. SPIZ has over 4 grams of BCAA per serving which creates both a "protein sparing" effect at the muscle cell level and a "glycogen sparing effect" as well.
2.Chelated Minerals are the most bioavailable form of minerals currently available as well as being the most expensive.
SPIZ contains only the highest quality chelated minerals from the most well respected name in mineral manufacturers, Albion Laboratories.
3.100% US Daily Values for vitamins per serving (except for vitamin D)
Including 100% of the US Daily Values for the antioxidants, vitamin E, and Beta-carotene, which can help protect the body from the potentially damaging effects of free radicals.
These highly-reactive substances are formed during exercise and can cause damage to the human body.
In fact, these free radicals are believed to be integral to the aging process itself, as well as in the development of cancer and heart disease.
The body utilizes various vitamins at significant rates during exercise, in fact in direct proportion to exercise intensity.
100% of the US Daily Values of the entire B-Complex, which are intimately involved in energy production.
Eeach serving contains only 10% of the US RDA for vitamin D.
This vitamin is a fat-soluble vitamin that is stored in the body, and can be synthesized through sufficient sunlight exposure, which most athletes are exposed to on a daily basis.
Extra Vitamin C (501 mg/serving) for stress or exercise-induced oxidation.
4. Short, and long-chain glucose polymers, along with smaller amounts of sugars in order to energize the exercising individual with a supply of both long and short-acting carbohydrates
5.L-Glutamine has been added to the formula for the following reasons:
Conditionally-essential amino acid, meaning that the human body cannot manufacture enough L-glutamine during certain conditions and must therefore obtain this amino acid from the diet.
One of those conditions appears to be stress, such as that resulting from physical exercise.
Helps maintain blood sugar levels which can be very important in maintaining energy levels during exercise.
Considered to be the "thinkers" amino acid, as it can help maintain concentration and focus during exercise.
Has been shown to be the most important amino acid in regulating muscle protein synthesis.
Consequently, according to research, if muscle glutamine levels are decreased (which is a normal occurrence in exercise), muscle protein synthesis is reduced.
Conversely, if muscle glutamine levels can be maintained or increased, then muscle protein synthesis occurs in direct proportion to muscle glutamine level, an issue very important to proper recovery.
6. High sodium/potassium concentration
Sodium and potassium losses lead to Hypomatremia and less frequently in long-distance athletes, Hypokalemia. High intakes of sodium and potassium prevent this electrolyte disturbance.
Sodium is a "carrier" molecule which serves to facilitate the transfer of glucose and amino acids into the bloodstream across the intestinal wall. Hence, high sodium concentrations promote faster absorption of nutrients during exercise, an important factor as, GI blood distribution is reduced.
How to use SPIZ
Each SPIZ container has a 50cc scooper in it. You have the ability to experiment or change the concentration of SPIZ by using 2, 3, 4, or 5 scoops/22 or 28 ounce water bottle. This corresponds to 250, 375, 500 or 750 calories/bottle respectively when mixed with water. No product works perfectly for everyone! SPIZ allows you the flexibility of finding out what caloric concentration works best for you based on your body size, metabolic rate, exercise intensity and temperature conditions. Smaller, lighter folks may require 250 or 375 calories every 60-90 minutes of exercise while large athletes will need 500 to 750 calories. Likewise, a more dilute solution can be used in hot water when hydration becomes more important.
SPIZ also eliminates the need for a different pre-workout or "recovery" product, as well as the need for gels, bars, and weak electrolyte drinks.
Everything and more is included in SPIZ. Use SPIZ at full strength 1-1½ hours pre-workout or pre-competition, every 60-120 minutes at your pre-selected concentration during and 1-2 full strength servings immediately after exercise.
For cancer and AIDS patients, 5 servings/day will provide 2500 calories of pre-digested food that is absorbed by the body with minimal metabolic effort and maximum nutritional delivery.
Always mix and drink with cold water if possible for best results.
