In the world of fitness and endurance, athletes and fitness enthusiasts are always on the lookout for that extra edge.
Whether you're a gym junkie striving for epic pumps or an endurance athlete pushing your limits, proper hydration and cellular support play a crucial role in achieving your goals. Enter bio-available glycerol (Aka: GlycerPump®): a patented compound that promises to supercharge your workouts and recovery.
What is Bioavailable Glycerol? Bioavailable glycerol, also known as GlycerPump®, is a specially formulated version of glycerol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol. Unlike standard glycerol, bioavailable glycerol is designed to maximize absorption and utilisation in the body. This unique property makes it an ideal choice for those seeking enhanced performance, cell hydration, and muscle recovery.
The Importance of Cellular Hydration: Cellular hydration is the cornerstone of athletic performance and recovery. When you're pushing your body to the limit, you need your cells to be adequately hydrated to function optimally. Bioavailable glycerol steps in to support this essential aspect of athletic success.
How Glycerol Enhances Performance
Supports Hydration: Glycerol is a hygroscopic compound, meaning it attracts and retains water. When you consume bioavailable glycerol, it helps increase your body's water retention, ensuring that you stay adequately hydrated during intense workouts or in hot conditions.
Supports Muscle Recovery: Intense exercise can lead to muscle damage and inflammation. Glycerol may aid in reducing muscle damage and inflammation, potentially speeding up the recovery process.
Boosts Athletic Performance: Proper hydration is key to maintaining endurance and maximizing strength and power during workouts. By supporting hydration, glycerol may contribute to improved athletic performance, helping you push through plateaus and set new personal records. In fact, studies show a 21-24% increase in time to exhaustion in athletes training in hot conditions.
Increases Muscle Cell Volume: Glycerol's ability to draw in water can lead to increased muscle cell volume, potentially resulting in better muscle pumps during your workouts and creating an environment for greater muscle hypertrophy (growth).
Bioavailable glycerol is emerging as a powerful tool for athletes and fitness enthusiasts, particularly those facing the challenges of heat, intense training, or long-distance endurance activities. By promoting cellular hydration and supporting muscle recovery, glycerol offers a multifaceted approach to enhancing performance.
