L-BAIBA is 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???
Well, there actually is an exercise mimetic that produces many of the same benefits called L-BAIBA (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 this amazing amino acid metabolite comes in.
Beta-aminoisobutyric acid 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 particular amino acid hat converts into L-BAIBA is L-Valine. When this happens, it literally tells your body that it 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, improved fatty acid utilization and improved brown adipose tissue activation. All of these benefits also happen naturally when L- BAIBA levels are higher in the plasma.
Research shows that oral L-BAIBA, when consumed, also increases plasma L-BAIBA. A good way to think about this is like an exercise augmenter. Basically, you’re getting more out of every rep and step when you’re using this compound to elevate your already endogenous L-BAIBA levels.
Here is the full list of benefits:
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 supplement. 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.
L-BAIBA is an exciting 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 ensure that we’re getting the most benefit from exercise.
L-BAIBA is patented as MitoBurn™ so when you are looking at supplements, look for this brand in the ingredients list.
Dose: 750 – 2000mg amplified before exercise and/or before cold exposure
