All Neapharma products are pH-neutral. Without flavoring and acids which affect pH, everything is absorbed faster and more effectively for maximum impact, without stressing your stomach and intestines. In addition, products with a neutral pH are kinder on your tooth enamel.
All Neapharma products are perfectly suitable for children to take. But we would like to emphasize that you should not go overboard with this. We personally are not fans of children taking recovery shakes (which are not cheap either) or omega-3.
Just like adults, children can also benefit from an isotonic sports drink during an effort. They too sweat and exert themselves, just like adults. In fact, some 13-year-old children are training quite hard for their age, making sports nutrition necessary. But if your children go cycling for an easy one-hour ride, there’s not need to equip them like pro athletes.
Pro-Leucine does indeed have a similar effect to BCAAs. After all, BCAAs are a mix of leucine, iso-leucine and valine.
While leucine is only one of the three BCAAs (branched chain amino acids), it is the most powerful of the three (leucine, isoleucine, valine). Leucine provides the most muscle power and is responsible for switching on protein synthesis to build, maintain and repair weak or damaged muscles. In addition, both leucine and isoleucine have the ability to help your body with muscle building and muscle recovery after exercise.
Leucine is most effective when taken in its pure form.
The Pro-Elite Recovery is best used after your hard and/or long workouts. Daily is not necessary. After short, non-strenuous workouts (lasting less than two hours), you’re better off with Pro-Leucine. A full recovery shake would be an overkill for these easier days.
