Fed up with feeling tired and achy after intense sport? Amino Recovery Balm revives, reconditions and freshens your body whilst giving a gentle cooling sensation! Our unique formula will calm, relax and rejuvenate your body to help regeneration and boost energy levels using the amino acid Glutamine which is the most abundant amino acid in the muscle cells.

During training and competition the supplies of intramuscular glutamine fall, the muscle cell volume declines and muscle degradation occurs. Glutamine increases glycogen storage and hydrates muscle cells. This increases protein synthesis and energy metabolism which in turn helps improve the body’s regeneration process. Glutamine supplementation plays an important role in supporting recovery, increasing muscle cell volume and preventing muscle degradation.

The Science

The amino acids in Muc-Off’s formulas form the muscle’s building blocks. The process starts with proteins being processed by the body, which then enables the release of the amino acids, ensuring lactate accumulation is reduced, and muscle recovery and growth is improved during and after sport.

Muc-Off is leading the way in processing the purest amino acids in a revolutionary product range that is applied directly onto skin. This is the new way to give your body with amino acids, precisely where you need them, straight to the desired muscles!

Directly after application, a protective and breathable layer is formed on the surface of your skin. This unique skin application system enables amino acids to be quickly absorbed. When used in conjunction with the full Muc-Off Athlete Protection range, the Amino Glutamine in the Recovery balm increases glycogen storage and hydrates muscle cells so your body can be rejuvenated, with energy levels returning as quickly as possible!

Amino Patch Technology - The Science:

The Department of Molecular and Cellular Sports Medicine at the University of Cologne helped to quantify Muc-Off’s new Amino Patch technology.

The University tested 15 male ‘force’ trained athletes (either with Muc-Off Athlete protection or a placebo). Each volunteer performed twice, they were tested to determine maximal force and the respective repetition maximum at 80% of maximal force.

It was found that over 70% of the testers using the amino acid creams increased performance. ‘Resistance against exhaustion was increased after using Muc-Off Amino treatments’.

We then used the below formulas (Mayhem and Wathan) to calculate the results, these use different coefficients for different rep numbers:

Mayhem and Wathan formulas indicated significant differences (V=2.24/2.52, G=.77). According to Mayhew, 11 of 14 volunteers increased performance with Muc-Off Amino Explosive Power. According to Wathan, 12 of 14 volunteers increased performance with Muc-Off Amino Explosive Power.
Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Patrick Diel, (Dept. Mol. and Cell. Sports Medicine German Sports University Cologne) said:

“A mechanistic explanation could be a modulation of blood flow in the Muc-Off Amino Explosive Power treated muscles. Arginine is a substrate for the Nitric Oxide –synthase. If delivery of arginine over the skin is effective this could indeed result in an increased local arginine concentration, which could be converted to Nitric Oxide (NO). This results in an increased blood flow in the respective muscles, which increases resistance against exhaustion.”
