What is Alkagen Fast?
Alkagen Fast by Olimp is a food supplement in effervescent tablets that provides a dose of mineral salts to maintain the electrolyte balance in the organism, improving the performance, delaying the muscle fatigue, keeping the body hydrated and ensuring a proper muscle function.
Each tablet will provide an immediate dose of mineral salts to effectively deal with the symptoms of fatigue cause by dehydration and acidification during the workout.
What are the properties of Alkagen Fast?
Alkagen Plus contains sodium bicarbonate, a completely natural substance that prevents an excessive muscle acidity and which helps to recover an alkaline environment which is more ideal for the functioning of the muscles. During the anaerobic metabolism, the glycolysis creates a residue known as lactic acid, which accumulates in the muscle tissue, altering its pH and increasing its acidity, reducing the pH from 7.0 to 6.4.
This acid environment block an enzyme, phosphofructokinase, which is a limiting factor for the glycolysis or glucose production from glycogen. Consequently, we will experience the onset of fatigue and a drop in our performance. The pH reduction triggers an intense burning sensation in the muscles and we will be unable to perform the muscle construction efficiently.
To avoid this situation, sodium bicarbonate (an alkalizing agent) can be quite useful since it increases the blood and muscle pH.
The Alkagen Plus formula also provides an electrolyte blend in order to avoid becoming dehydrated during the workout and to ensure the proper functioning of the muscles.
- Calcium: Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the organism. It is crucial for the muscle contraction and to keep the cell membranes healthy.
- Magnesium: Indispensable for a proper energy metabolism, for the functioning of the nervous system, the muscle function and fluid balance.
- Sodium and Potassium: Both support the fluid balance, osmotic pressure and acid-base balance.
Who can benefit from Alkagen Fast?
- Ideal for athletes who do high intense and short-term physical exercise since it can increase the muscle acidity.
- Endurance athletes who are going to perform an exercise that will involve an important electrolyte loss, such as a long activity that can cause a lot of sweating, as well as hot and humid weathers.
