POST+

POST+ has been studied to take advantage of the post-workout anabolic window to restore nutrients and build new tissues.


The anabolic window is the period (between 20 and 120 minutes) immediately after training, when muscles are most prone to incorporate nutrients to synthesize new tissue and repair the one damaged by physical activity. This moment is exploited to re-stock the body with the necessary nutrients, to speed up tissue repair and obtain quicker recovery.


At this time, we need a fast-release protein source. In POST+ whey proteins are used. In comparison with other protein sources (eggs, soy, wheat, caseins, etc.), they have some distinguishing characteristics. They have a high content of branched amino acids, a higher biological value and high digestibility with a fast increase in the amino acid plasma concentration. Thanks to these characteristics, whey proteins can supply the energy substrates for the protein synthesis. They can suppress protein catabolism, stimulate protein synthesis and promote muscle growth. They reduce tiredness and fatigue and contribute to normal liver function. Finally, they act as a substrate for gluconeogenesis, a process through which energy is produced starting from some amino acids, in particular in prolonged fasting periods and prolonged physical activity.

To enhance the action of whey protein, POST+, the branched amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine that are important for protein synthesis. Unlike others, they can be metabolised also in the muscle, and not just in the liver, and be used directly for the reconstruction of damaged fibres, allowing a quicker recovery time. Moreover, they reduce the level of cortisol, creating an anabolic balance favourable to the development of muscle mass and compete with tryptophan, contrasting the feeling of fatigue.

The role of Glutamine is important, a non essential amino acid that can stimulate protein synthesis, promoting an increase in muscle mass and water, amino acids and other substances entering the cells. During the recovery period, it favours the storage of muscle glycogen and can stimulate the secretion of GH. Glutamine is considered as being able to fight the overtraining syndrome (chronic fatigue, loss in weight, loss of appetite, minor infections, nausea, depression) and to play the role of energy support in quickly multiplying cells such as lymphocytes and macrophages. In the central nervous system, it is converted into glutamate that is the most important and widespread central excitatory neurotransmitter. Finally, Glutamine can detoxify and regulate the blood and urine pH.

Finally, Creatine has the characteristic of increasing muscle strength, explosiveness and anaerobic performance. It is stored in the muscle as phosphocreatine (Pcr), readily available to give its phosphate to ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate) for the synthesis of new ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) necessary for muscle contraction. At the same time, muscular trophism increases, with the entrance of water and nutrients into the myocyte (muscle cell) and consequent increase of the muscle mass. The energy supplied to produce ATP during and after physical exercise depends mainly on the quantity of Pcr deposited in the muscle. The high creatine content allows the muscle to recover more quickly from intense physical efforts, improving performance.
