Abbott launches redesigned sports nutrition

Abbott says that its EAS Sports Nutrition is helping serious athletes train harder through nine redesigned Myoplex products that deliver the nutrition athletes need before, during and after workouts. The new line is said to help athletes improve power, sustain performance, build muscle and recover strong so they can achieve their personal best.

Abbott says that the new products use innovative ingredient combinations in clinically proven amounts that support athletes' energy, muscle and recovery needs.

"This is our most scientifically advanced line yet," said Steve Hertzler, EAS scientific officer and architect of the Myoplex line. "We've introduced technology like our E3 Fusion blend which has three proven ingredients that work together to help decrease muscle breakdown and promote new growth. Also, our Pre-Workout nutrition helps increase workout capacity and performance. Every product is designed to nutritionally deliver what's needed to sustain

Products from the new line include:

+Myoplex Pre-Workout is a blend of beetroot extract, beta-alanine, caffeine, creatine monohydrate and Peak ATP nutrients. It's designed to be used before hitting the gym and can help athletes train harder by increasing workout capacity and stamina.

+ Myoplex BCAA + Electrolytes is for use during a workout to sustain performance. It features a 2:1:1 ratio of branched chained amino acids to promote muscle protein synthesis and includes electrolytes to maintain hydration during intense workouts.

+ Myoplex Protein Blend aids in post-workout recovery by combining quick- and-slow digesting proteins with E3 Fusion to provide muscle-building nutrition for up to seven hours. E3 Fusion is a blend of HMB, phosphatidylserine and leucine that helps to increase muscle protein synthesis and decrease muscle protein breakdown.

+ Myoplex Micellar Casein aids in repair and recovery and is designed to be taken at night. The slow-digesting casein protein provides sustained amino acids throughout the night and includes the E3 Fusion blend. To improve relaxation, the product has a Rest Matrix blend of nutrients.
