The supplement should be taken with at least a full glass of liquid.
It must not be combined with other supplements or medicines, because fibre can impair their absorption. If you need to take medicines, you should have at least an hour between taking supplement and taking the medicine.
Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.
Dietary fibre is a mixture of undigested substances and not absorbed by the human body. Due to the properties divided into: insoluble fibre (e.g. cellulose [polysaccharide] found in fruits and vegetables), partially soluble fibre (including hemicellulose occurring with cereal grains and soluble fibre (including pectin, gums, mucilages [polysaccharides]). Dietary fibre affects the digestive system and gastrointestinal system regulating its operation. By filling the stomach (satiety) reduces appetite, lowers triglycerides and cholesterol and consequently can support the weight loss process and maintain a slim body. It also affects blood glucose levels and cleansing the body of toxins. Available in powder formulations (capsules, and powders), mainly containing the soluble fraction (pectin, gums and mucilages) diet and meal replacements.
Dosage: 10-20 grams per day, before or during meals with some water.
Psyllium seed Husk (prepared husks of Psyllium seed), which are a rich source of hemicellulose (fibre), is not digested by the human body. Ensuring an adequate supply of fibre, significantly affects the function and condition of the gastrointestinal tract (supporting the development of bacterial flora, it has the effect on the intestinal peristalsis, and suppressing the appetite, filling the stomach produces a feeling of satiety for a longer period of time), and the prevention of cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis), and reduces the risk of insulin immunity (reduces the glycemic index of GI after a meal). Not quite scientifically studied effects on prevention of cancers. In the dietary supplementation, Psyllium seed husk is a base (or addition) of preparations containing fibre, and in the composition of carbohydrate-protein, protein supplements and and the MRP type meals. It is used by the both by professional athletes as well as people with less physical activity. Preparations available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: 10 to 20 g / 24 according to individual needs, or in case of shortage of components
Pectin is a mixture of amorphous sugars, of a high molecular weight (polygalacturonic acid chain combined with methanol [esterification] with branches side formed by arabinose and galactose. Pectin is fibre soluble in water (hot or cold) and therefore not subject to the process of digestion by enzymes synthesized by the body. They are found in products of plant origin (fruit, vegetables, etc.). Consumption of products containing pectin reduces hunger, improves the function of the digestive tract and reduces levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) in the blood.. Pectins bind ions of heavy metals and break down the bacterial flora in the intestine thick. the most effective action (compaction) show in an acidic environment (pH≤ 6) and in the presence of sugars. They are a component of the nutrients concentrates and supplements in capsules, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: the lack of standards for daily consumption. A taken dose dependens on the purpose and individual needs
