The most advanced full body repair system available
Each BODYSHOTZ sachet contains the following active ingredients in the recommended dosage.
Each active ingredient plays an important role in FULL BODY MAINTENANCE.
Glucosamine Sulphate can both delay the breakdown of and repair damaged cartilage and can help with the pain associated with Arthritis and Osteoarthritis. (READ MORE...)
Glucosamine Sulphate is a chemical that is found in the human body. It is used by the body to produce a number of other chemicals that are involved in building tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the fluid that surrounds joints.
Joints are cushioned by the fluid and cartilage that surround them. For those with Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, and even just as we age, the cartilage breaks down and becomes thin. This can result in joint friction, pain and stiffness. Medical research suggests that taking Glucosamine Sulphate may increase the cartilage and fluid surrounding the joints and help prevent the breakdown of them in the first place. In fact, Glucosamine Sulphate is the only supplement recommended by NHS Orthopaedic Surgeons for the treatment of pain for arthritic conditions.
The ‘Sulphate’ part is also really important! Sulphate is needed by the body to produce cartilage. This is why medical research suggests that Glucosamine Sulphate works better than other forms of Glucosamine.
BCAA 2:1:1 (Branched-Chain Amino Acids)
BCAAs can increase muscle growth, prevent muscle wastage and reduce muscle soreness. (READ MORE...)
There are 20 different amino acids that make up muscle protein in the body. Of these 20 amino acids, 9 are ‘essential’ and 11 are ‘non-essential’. The 9 ‘essential’ amino acids cannot be produced by the body itself and need to be included in the diet.
Three of these nine essential amino acids are known as branched-chain amino acids (BCAA); Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.
Arguably the most important of these 3 BCAAs is Leucine as it activates the ‘pathway’ in the body to stimulate muscle protein synthesis i.e. muscle growth.
Muscle wastage can occur when muscle breakdown exceeds muscle protein synthesis. Research suggests that by having the correct level of BCAAs in the diet, muscle wastage can be prevented.
The BCAAs that we have chosen for BodyShotz is InstAA 2:1:1, a plant-based (Vegan fermented) blend. Plant-based BCAAs are absorbed far better into the body than keratin based BCAAs.
Collagen can help to relieve joint pain, by improving and maintaining the condition of your cartilage. (READ MORE...)
Collagen is one of the most important proteins found in your body. It is the fundamental component of the connective tissues found in tendons, ligaments, skin and muscle. Collagen has an array of important functions including providing structure to your skin and strengthening your bones.
The amount of Collagen in the body decreases as we age, increasing the risk of developing degenerative joint conditions such as Osteoarthritis. Taking a supplement of Collagen, can help to improve the symptoms of Osteoarthritis and help to relieve joint pain as a whole.
As the amount of Collagen in the body deteriorates as we age, so does bone density. This can easily result in the degenerative condition known as Osteoporosis (brittle bones). Medical research shows that taking a supplement of Collagen can have certain effects on the body that inhibit the bone deterioration that leads to Osteoporosis.
Collagen also plays a key role in the development of muscle. Between 1-10% of muscle tissue is made up of Collagen. It is an essential component in keeping muscles strong and functioning correctly. Medical research suggests that a supplement of Collagen can help boost muscle mass in people suffering from Sarcopenia (muscle loss as we age). Research also suggests that Collagen can promote the synthesis of muscle proteins, stimulating muscle growth after exercise.
It is also well-documented that a supplement of Collagen can provide many other health benefits such as promoting heart health, and improving the condition of skin, hair and nails.
Curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory. In fact, it is so powerful that it matches (and in some cases exceeds) the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs. (READ MORE...)
The Curcumin content of Turmeric is not very high (around 3%). In fact, it would be extremely difficult to obtain a sufficient quantity of Curcumin from Turmeric for it to be effective. The Curcumin in BodyShotz contains a minimum 95% Curcuminoids (the compounds that hold medicinal properties).
Medical research has shown that Curcumin can offer pain relief for those suffering from degenerative joint conditions such as Arthritis and Osteoarthritis.
There is also research to suggest that Curcumin can provide several other health benefits such as improving brain function, lowering the risk of heart disease, and helping to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s Disease.
Chondroitin Sulphate is found naturally in your body. It is an essential part of cartilage, giving it elasticity by helping it to retain water. Chondroitin Sulphate can prevent the breakdown of collagen in the joints and is shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. (READ MORE...)
Chondroitin Sulphate is a substance which is naturally found in the cartilage that protects our joints. Over time, normal levels of Chondroitin Sulphate may start to decline, and there is evidence to suggest that taking a supplement of Chondroitin Sulphate may help to alleviate or even reverse age-related joint problems such as arthritis or osteoarthritis.
MSM is an extremely popular supplement used to alleviate joint pain, reduce inflammation and boost immunity. It can also naturally speed up muscle recovery after intense exercise by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. (READ MORE...)
MSM has been shown to help those with degenerative joints by inhibiting the breakdown of cartilage and significantly reducing inflammation (the anti-inflammatory properties of MSM are well documented by medical research). For this reason, it is a supplement commonly taken by those with Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, and its results are shown to be more effective when taken with Glucosamine Sulphate and Chondroitin (two other active ingredients in BodyShotz).
L-citrulline is shown to reduce fatigue and improve endurance for both aerobic and anaerobic exercise. (READ MORE...)
It is a non-essential amino acid, meaning that it is made in the body. It is produced in the liver and intestines, either from L-arginine or L-glutamine. It has been shown in several research studies that healthy adults who started taking L-citrulline saw an increase in exercise capacity. This is due to its ability to help the body to utilise oxygen better which boosts your workout and endurance ability. Many studies have shown that L-citrulline also helps to decrease high blood pressure and increase nitric oxide levels. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to dilate, which lowers blood pressure.
