WHAT IS STROM MAXIMISE?
maximize is designed to help you get the most out of all your supplements. It contains ingredients that can improve the absorption of your supplements and really help maximize their potential.
WHAT’S IN STROMS MAXIMIZE?
Ginger has been shown in studies to increase the absorption of compounds from 30-200% and is known as part of a collective “Trikatu” in Ayurvedic medicine, which is used together to increase the effectiveness of other medicines. As a side benefit, ginger is also incredibly anti-inflammatory.
ASTRAGIN® (PANAX NOTOGINSENG (ROD) OG ROSA ROXBURGHII (FRUGTKROP)
AstraGin™ increases the number of compounds that the human body is able to absorb at any given time. It helps the body to increase the number of special molecules responsible for absorption.
Studies show that performance-related ingredients, including amino acids, vitamins and proteins, are enhanced for an increased absorption rate. In particular, the absorption of the amino acids, arginine, lysine, citrulline and histidine have all shown an improvement in the presence of AstraGin by up to 43%, while also being shown to aid in the repair of intestinal walls where absorption of nutrients takes place.
AstraGin™ has also been shown to improve adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production by 18%, increase insulin sensitivity by 38% and glucose absorption by 57%.
PIPERINE (BLACK PEPPER EXTRACT)
Much like the aforementioned ginger, Piperine is a bioavailability-enhancing extract derived from the fruit of black pepper (Piper Nigrum). As above, it works well with ginger and has been shown to greatly improve the bioavailability of ingredients. Furthermore, its synergy with ginger makes this product an absolute absorption powerhouse.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS OF MAXIMISE?
- Trademarked ingredients
- Excellent for stacking with most other supplements
- Increases the absorption of your other sports allowances
THE SCIENCE BEHIND MAXIMIZE
- Consists of a highly purified and fractionated complex of Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus produced via pharmaceutical extraction and processing.
- Shown in 16 in vitro and eight in vivo studies to increase the bioavailability and absorption of several key nutrients, including fish oil (100% increase), L-Citrulline (45% increase) and Curcumin (92% increase).
- AstraGin improves nutrient absorption by upregulating mRNA and transporters such as SGLT1, CAT1 and GLUT4. These transporters regulate the amount of amino acids, vitamins and other nutrients that enter the intestinal cells. This is important as any nutrients not entering these cells will be excreted.
- AstraGin has been documented in studies to improve the absorption of several amino acids, including arginine (67% increase), creatine (33% increase) and leucine (58% increase). This is particularly noteworthy since muscle protein synthesis is directly affected by the availability of leucine (the anabolic “trigger” for muscle growth).
- AstraGin may also support better muscle recovery and growth after exercise, as studies of ginsenosides (one of the active components of AstraGin) note that it activates the mTOR signaling pathway by regulating upstream kinases in muscle cells.
- Astragalosides, another active component of AstraGin®, affects mTOR via its regulation of insulin levels.
- In vivo studies also indicate that AstraGin has a beneficial effect on gut health due to its ability to reduce inflammation in the gut wall by 73%.
- Animal studies note that AstraGin can help repair ulcerated and damaged intestinal walls in colitis-induced subjects.
- Finally, AstraGin can help suppress appetite as it upregulates tryptophan absorption by 53%. Tryptophan is an amino acid used to produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter that acts as an appetite-reducing (anorexigenic) signal in the brain.
- Can also support a healthy intestinal flora population.
- Black pepper is one of the most used spices in the world.
- BioPerine is a standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum L (black pepper) containing 95% piperine.
- BioPerine increases nutrient bioavailability by inhibiting enzymes that metabolize nutrients (such as CYP3A4) as well as proteins that contribute to first-pass elimination of drugs (such as P-glycoprotein).
- Piperine (the active component in BioPerine) has also been noted to stimulate amino acid transporters, facilitating greater uptake of amino acids into the bloodstream.
- Finally, piperine inhibits the cellular pump responsible for drug elimination from cells.
- Piperine has been documented to increase the bioavailability of several of the most commonly used daily health supplements, including curcumin (2000% increase), resveratrol (229% increase), and CoQ10 (30% increase).
