ATS Labs comes to you with a new innovation in athletic recovery with CIC. For the first time ever one product combines the power of collagen, BCAAs and EAAs for recovery, optimal muscle growth and maximum performance.
CIC uses its healing power on collagen based tissues. It’s a buzzword popular in the Paleo and Keto communities because it’s profile closely resembles bone broth and gelatin. It provides resilient elasticity to our skin, hair, ligaments, and tendons, as well as strength and structure to our bones and cartilage. Collagen supplements appear to be effective for improving skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles, and minimizing the appearance of cellulite. Research also shows their use in reducing joint pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility.
Its real benefit lies in its very nature. Between 1–10% of muscle tissue is composed of collagen. Researchers suggest that taking collagen may promote the synthesis of muscle proteins and actually increase muscle mass. You can also help the joints by strengthening connective tissue. The stronger those connective tissues are — cartilage at joints, tendons, ligaments — the lower the risk for injuries.
Then we answer the question which should you use – BCAA or EAA? The answer? Both! Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and serve as a catalyst for nearly every chemical process in the body. Essential amino acids are the ones that the body has to acquire through diet and supplements. Of the nine essential amino acids three – leucine, isoleucine, and valine – are known as the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), named for their branched chemical structure. BCAAs are metabolized in the muscle instead of the liver. This means that they’re available in the bloodstream soon after ingestion and can be used for fuel during exercise. This means increased muscle recovery, decreased fatigue, and improved glycogen storage.
CIC is one of the only ”all in one” recovery drinks for any athlete. CIC helps you recover with its uniquely designed formula to proactively support muscle and joint health. Collagen Peptides, essential amino acids (EAA) and branched chain amino acids (BCAA) help maximize muscle protein and collagen synthesis, while glutamine helps support the increased demand caused by intense training. Electrolytes, vitamins and minerals replenish anything lost during exercise. CIC makes sure you’re ready for the next game.
