Dr. FEAAR – Advanced Essential Amino Acid Formula
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and muscle. There are a total of 22 different amino acids, nine of these are classified as “essential amino acids” – meaning that our body can’t produce them and we have to ingest them through various protein sources.
Recently, several studies have shown that to maximally stimulate muscle protein synthesis; you need all 9 of the essential amino acids present; not just the three BCAA’s (leucine, isoleucine, and valine).
A recent study found that when taken alone, BCAAs stimulated muscle protein synthesis by about 22% more than placebo, but the response was still 50% less compared to the muscle protein synthesis results from a dose of whey protein containing a full spectrum of EAAs. This means amino acids must include a full spectrum of all nine essential amino acids for maximal increases in muscle protein synthesis, not just BCAA’s.
EAAs support muscle by both limiting muscle breakdown and boosting muscle building.
Adaptogens are natural substances considered to help the body adapt to stress, improve immune function, reduce psychological stress, and enhance performance.
What could result in greater stress than extreme training and cutting your calories? In a clinical study at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, competitive athletes supplementing with PeakO2™ improved their maximum power output by 17.6% over baseline after only seven days; whereas the placebo group decreased 11.8% compared to baseline.
Peak O2 is needed for any athlete involved in competitions involved with extreme stress such as endurance athletes, mixed martial artists, Crossfit and cross trainer or any performance-driven athlete, or simply heading into a serious stretch of high-volume training such as a pre-contest diet.
Dr. FEAAR is designed to maximize protein synthesis, enhance muscle recuperation, and reduce body fat.
Dr. FEAAR is not some ordinary EAA mix; it also contains PeakO2TM, a potent blend of patent-pending blend of six adaptogens demonstrated to boost stamina and power, while enhancing the body’s ability to adapt to stress.
The unique combination results in an increased ability to train harder while maximizing protein synthesis.
One of the side effects of low carb dieting is a reduction in glycogen and cellular water. Many physique athletes may not know this, but dehydration can result in a decrease in muscle protein synthesis and loss of anabolic signaling.
One of the side effects of being dehydrated is the loss of “muscle pumps” in the gym. During resistance training, water is driven from the blood into muscle cells and surrounding areas—known as interstitial space—based on the muscle squeezing during contractions which causes massive muscle pumps. When body water is compromised because of dehydration, often in combination with excessive sweating, water is drawn out of muscle and back into the blood. When your muscles don’t have water, there is no muscle pumps.
Research studies have shown that when cells lose water, protein synthesis is decreases and muscle breakdown can increases. Muscle strength also dramatically decreases when dehydration sets in.
Dr. FEAAR contains hydrating agents such as coconut water powder and electrolytes to offset losses by sweating and dieting.
