What It Is
An easy-to-mix BCAA powder provides delicious flavor in every scoop. Next time you step in the gym, on the court, or on the field be sure to use Steel Fuel® to maximize your performance.* Steel Fuel® can also be used throughout the day as a fantastic alternative to sugary sports drinks or juices and is derived from vegetable starches, making it vegan-friendly.*
What It Does
Effectively aids in muscle repair and muscle protein synthesis while enhancing endurance performance and decreasing fatigue.* By synergistically combining vital electrolytes with raw coconut water powder, Steel Fuel® helps rehydrate the body after an exercise-induced fluid loss.*
Proven Active Ingredients
Research Proven 2:1:1 BCAA Ratio: Branched-Chain Amino Acids compromise 35% of your body’s muscle protein and are composed of the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. The more BCAAs that are present in the muscles, the more they will be used for energy; slowing the breakdown of muscle cells and preventing muscle loss.
- L-Leucine: Stimulates muscle protein synthesis.
- L-Isoleucine: Induces glucose uptake into cells and promotes glucose metabolism.
- L-Valine: Converted into glucose and used by the body as a source of fuel.
Electrolyte Blend: Electrolytes are minerals present in the body that have an electric charge. They are especially relevant to exercise because they control how much water the body has, blood acidity, and muscle function. Electrolytes are lost in sweat, which explains why intense exercise can lead to problems such as dehydration.
- Magnesium: Prevents muscle cramps.
- Potassium: Provides cardiac muscle support.
- Sodium: Regulates muscle contraction and nerve function.
Taurine: An amino acid that plays a role in the functioning and maintenance of skeletal muscle, cardiovascular health, and overall energy levels. Taurine helps in the regulation of muscle contractions, water balance, and energy levels of neurotransmitters in the brain. Supplementing with taurine has been shown to increase strength levels, decrease muscle soreness, promote endurance and aid in recovery. It is also a key regulator in fluid-electrolyte balance.
Raw Coconut (Cocos nucifera) Water Powder: One of the richest natural sources of electrolytes containing numerous vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, and antioxidants. Coconut Water has the ability to rehydrate you very quickly due to the fact that it is readily absorbed into the body.
L-Citrulline Malate: A non-essential amino acid, playing a key role in the Urea Cycle, which is the process whereby the body eliminates toxic byproducts of digesting protein and generating cellular energy. L-Citrulline Malate serves as an important component in the tricarboxylic (or TCA) cycle, which is one way your body produces energy. When you increase malate levels, you increase energy production. Therefore, citrulline malate provides the one-two punch of bringing additional blood—and subsequently, oxygen and nutrients—to exercising muscles, as well as providing increased energy to boost performance levels.
L-Glutamine: The most common amino acid found in your muscles. L-Glutamine plays key roles in protein metabolism, cell volumizing, and anti-catabolism. Glutamine’s anti-catabolism ability prevents the breakdown of your muscles.
L-Glycine: A non-essential amino acid that is used to make protein in the body, which builds the tissue that forms organs, joints, and muscles. L-Glycine promotes muscle growth by helping to inhibit the deterioration of protein tissues that form muscle and boosts muscle recovery.
As a dietary supplement, mix one serving (one level scoop) of Steel Fuel® with 8-16 fl. oz. of cold water (adjust for taste preferences). Stir or shake well and consume during exercise on training days, or throughout the day on both training and non-training days.
