How To Use

Mix 1 scoop with 500ml of water (or to desired taste), consume during or after training, or whenever. 

Lean Muscle Acrule

Recovery of the Gods contains the Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs): L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine. These BCAAs are vital for Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS) and energy production during exercise.

L-leucine is the most notable and well studied of the three, due to its ability to stimulate Mechanistic Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) which then leads to MPS. 

L-isoleucine while also involved in MPS, is best known for its role in glucose metabolism, which helps regulate the sugar levels within the blood and ensures your body has a steady supply of energy. It also plays a part in hemoglobin production and can promote fat utilisation within the body.

L-valine aids in MPS, muscle metabolism however it is essential for tissue repair and wound healing. This is particularly relevant to those who are recovering from an injury. 

There are multiple stages to MPS: Firstly, MPS is initiated when the muscle is stressed, typically by resistance exercise or other forms of high intensity training. This muscle stress signals activation of key pathways in cells related to MPS. Central to this is Mechanistic Target of Rapamycin (mTOR). Once mTOR and other MPS signals in the cell are activated, the next step is transcription. The cells within the body read the DNA that codes for specific muscle proteins and transcribes it into the molecule called messenger RNA (mRNA). The mRNA acts as instructions for the cells to follow, it is then transported out of the nucleus of the cell and into the cytoplasm. Here, ribosomes read the mRNA and transcribe the instructions into corresponding proteins. They do this by assembling chains of amino acids. After this chain has been completed, modifications to the chain such as folding into specific 3D structures and chemical modifications such as phosphorylation or glycosylation occur. These newly formed proteins then are used to repair and build muscle tissue. 

Optimise Recovery

Amino Acids are very important for recovery. They are the building blocks of proteins, which are essential for repairing and building muscle tissue. During exercise, particularly intense exercise, muscle proteins break down and then new proteins need to be synthesised via amino acids, this process is called Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS). It's important to note that adequate protein and amino acid intake is crucial for tissue repair and health. 

Improve Cognitive Function

Recovery of the Gods contains several amino acids that are important for brain function, acting as precursors to neurotransmitters. These amino acids include: 

L-Tryptophan, which is a precursor to serotonin, the major neurotransmitter that regulates mood, sleep and appetite. L-tryptophan is converted into 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) by an enzyme called tryptophan hydroxylase and is then converted into serotonin. 

Taurine is an amino acid that is found in many tissues throughout the body, especially the brain.

Supplementation of Taurine has been proven to increase cognitive function by acting as a neuromodulator for several neurotransmitter systems, including Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), glutamate, dopamine and serotonin. 

L-histidine, is a building block of protein synthesis but also has a unique role in the brain. Histidine converts into histamine which acts as a neurotransmitter within the brain that has a wide range of functions, such as: Wakefulness, learning, memory, appetite regulation, emotions and mood. 

L-phenylalanine serves as a precursor to L-tyrosine and L-Tyrosine is a precursor to several key neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin and epinephrine. These neurotransmitters are crucial for regulating mood, cognition and the body's response to stress. Intense exercise has been proven to decrease these important neurotransmitters (especially dopamine) and by supplementing L-Tyrosine the dopaminergic system is enhanced. This is due to the increase in raw material required to synthesis dopamine leading to decrease in fatigue and increase in cognitive function. 

While research is ongoing, some evidence suggests that L-threonine may pay a role in neuromodulation and neurotransmitters, however it is the least studied. 

Increase Blood Flow and Hydration

Recovery of the Gods contains key ingredients that have been proven to increase blood flow. These ingredients are:

Agmatine Sulfate is produced in the body from L-arginine and influences nitric oxide production similarly to L-citrulline however it also inhibits Arginase which breaks down L-arginine, by inhibiting Arginase more L-arginine is readily available to be converted to nitric oxide, enhancing blood flow even further. 

Betaine Anyhydrous is a compound derived from the amino acid choline and has been studied for a variety of benefits. Betaine enhances the production of nitric oxide which increases the delivery of blood and nutrients to the muscle. It also functions as a osmolyte, meaning it helps regulate water balance in cells and helps maintain hydration. 

Potassium, magnesium and sodium are all important electrolytes that help maintain hydration within the body. When you are dehydrated, your body requires more than just water to rehydrate effectively, lost electrolytes need to be replenished in order for you to rehydrate.

Sodium (Na+), the main electrolyte found in the body, helps maintain the balance of water in and around cells. It does this by regulating the movement of water via osmosis. When your dehydrated, your body releases hormones that prevent you from losing additional sodium. It also plays a crucial role in nerve impulses, nutrient absorption, and the body's PH levels. 

Potassium (K+) helps regulate water within the body by acting as a counter balance to sodium, this is important for maintaining healthy blood pressure and proper cellular hydration. It is essential for proper nerve function as nerves impulses are generated by the movement of Na+ into the cells and K+ out of the cells. 

Magnesium (Mg2+) plays a crucial role in several biological functions such as the conversion of food into energy, Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS)=, muscle function, nervous system regulation, bone health, blood sugar control, blood pressure regulation and heart health.
