Exercise in a pill? Sounds ridiculous, or at least too good to be true, right?
It’s something we all hope for and that “simple” solution is promised by countless gurus and companies but it’s not that easy—is it???
What if I told you there actually was something that was an exercise mimetic and produced many of the same benefits?
I’m happy to say that its name is L-BAIBA, branded as Mitoburn.
We, of course, still need to exercise and eat right as we all know that exercise is a crucial part of life. Our bodies need movement to stay healthy but sometimes, it’s hard to find the time to work out as often as we would like. That’s where L-BAIBA comes in.
L-BAIBA, beta-aminoisobutyric acid, helps you to get more out of every rep and step. It is a myokine: a non-protein amino acid secreted by skeletal muscles during exercise. It is an exercise mimetic, meaning, it’s the signal for intense exercise.
When your body is intensely exercising, you break down some of the BCAA muscle pool for those amino acids to use as a substrate, as a fuel for your workout. One amino acid being L-Valine which converts into L-BAIBA and when L-BAIBA is seen, it’s literally kind of like the Holy Grail, the signal for exercise that your body is intensely exercising.
As we know, there are many benefits to exercise. With intense exercise we see increased BDNF, neuroplasticity, increased bone mineral density, increased glucose tolerance and glycogen storage, improved muscle mass, hypertrophy, decreased fat mass, and improved fatty acid utilization, improved brown adipose tissue activation. These all are things that you see when BAIBA levels are higher in the plasma. This happens naturally.
Research has shown that oral BAIBA, when consumed, also increases plasma BAIBA. This has been shown in both animal and human studies. A good way to think about this is like an exercise augmenter. Basically, you’re getting more out of every rep and more out of every step when you’re using this compound to elevate your already endogenous BAIBA levels.
All of these things are seen when BAIBA levels are higher in the plasma.
With all the benefits listed above, it isn’t a surprise that L-BAIBA is a weight loss aid, but it also acts as an endurance exercise pill. Exercise is one of the best ways to maintain insulin sensitivity. When you exercise, your body increases the production of certain proteins that help cells take up glucose (blood sugar). When these proteins are high enough, they protect cells against damage caused by high blood glucose levels.
But sometimes people have trouble losing weight or cannot maintain their weight loss over time because they have developed insulin resistance—their muscles no longer respond well to the hormone insulin after being exposed too long to it during periods where there’s too much sugar in their system (like when having a lot of carbs at once). Losing excess fat can help reduce this problem because it decreases circulating levels of glucose in your bloodstream while increasing the amount of fat stored inside your body rather than outside.
There can be some confusion when it comes to searching for products that include L-BAIBA.
L-BAIBA is the ingredient but it is patented as Mitoburn so when you are looking at the ingredients list, search for Mitoburn.
Recommended Brands: Pro Supplements, Ghost burn, Serious Nutrition Solutions supplements, Bucked Up LFG burn
Dose: 750 – 2000mg amplified before exercise and/or before cold exposure
For all the above reasons and more L-BAIBA is very exciting! It’s a compound that can help you get more out of every workout, every rep, every step, and every push. With the limited time in our day, this can be a huge benefit to making sure we’re getting the most out of our workouts.
