Yamamoto Nutrition - Legionarius - IAFSTORE.COM

Yamamoto® Nutrition Legionarius - Food supplement of isomaltulose  Palatinose® and branched amino acids in 2:1:1 ratio that are indicated to supplement the diet of athletes.

Legionarius is a food supplement of Palatinose® isomaltulose and branched chain amino acids in a ratio of 2: 1: 1 InstAA® quality from vegetable fermentation with the addition of coconut water and salts in citrate form.
The product is enriched with magnesium and potassium, which contribute to normal muscle function, and with vitamins B6 and B12, which together with magnesium contribute to normal energy metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

To maintain a prolonged performance over time without physical or concentration drops, it is necessary for the athlete to have constant energy support, avoiding as much as possible the impending dehydration. The mission of Yamamoto® Nutrition has always been the search for products of the best efficacy created from excellent raw materials and designed to meet the needs of athletes of all levels. Thanks to the meticulous collaboration with professional athletes, the continuous listening to their needs and the collaboration between the international champion of MMA Alessio Sakara and Dr. Gabriele Trapani (Director of the Research and Development Department, Yamamoto® Nutrition) we have created Legionarius, a supplement which supports the intense and prolonged training sessions typical of fighters and all combat disciplines, Cross Trainers, triathletes, marathon runners, cyclists and bodybuilding lovers.

The professional is a "holistic athlete", intensely engaged on an aerobic and anaerobic basis, which combines reactivity with athletic gesture. It therefore needs to maintain its resistance for prolonged times without drops in energy, concentration or digestive disorders. In addition, he must be able to recover as quickly as possible.

Legionarius is a Special Edition developed on the needs directly indicated by the profound experience of a champion of the caliber of Alessio Sakara. Our research and development department has therefore focused on the most important critical issues that may arise during training or in a competition, to create a product designed "by athletes for athletes".

Legionarius is a mixture of elements to be taken during training (through your own bottle or bottle of water) that allows you to create a gradual wave of energy to support the muscles involved in the effort thanks to:

  •     Isomaltulose Palatinose ™ (carbohydrates with certified efficiency)
  •     InstAA® branched amino acids with a very high degree of solubility from vegetable fermentation
  •     Mineral salts in citrate form
  •     Coconut water

To have the best energy yield, in fact, in a delicate phase like that of performance, the athlete must introduce fuel of high nutritional value and well tolerated by the body.

Isomaltulose Palatinose ™

Isomaltulose (Palatinose ™), is a low glycemic index disaccharide sugar whose molecule is formed by the union of two monosaccharide sugars, glucose and fructose. It is a natural sugar present in small quantities in honey and cane sugar, which has a sweetening power equal to 45-50% compared to sucrose (white sugar). Recently it is finding more and more application as an ingredient for sports drinks due to its interesting properties. Characterized by a very gradual process of absorption and release into the bloodstream, isomaltulose has a moderate glycemic curve over time, without peaks or sudden drops that can occur with other sources of carbohydrates (glucose or malto dextrins). It has therefore proven to be a slow-release energy source that can support the body during even very prolonged training sessions. Thanks to its structural characteristics, in addition to not excessively elevating blood sugar and insulin power, it does not lead to the onset of gastrointestinal disorders such as fermentation, nausea, osmotic diarrhea, providing energy and constant hydration thanks to reduced osmolarity.

InstAA® branched amino acids

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are known and appreciated by both power and endurance athletes. These are three of the essential amino acids:

  •     Leucine
  •     Valina
  •     Isoleucine

Three substances that our body cannot produce on its own and must introduce through food. BCAAs are absorbed through the intestinal mucosa and, through the blood, pass as free amino acids directly into the tissues. Unlike other amino acids, they are metabolized directly in the muscles, without being broken down or rebuilt by the liver. BCAAs have always been used in sports because they represent a large portion of the essential amino acids present in human muscles. They are taken to counteract training-induced muscle breakdown (catabolism) and are potentially beneficial in power and endurance sports both as a support for the muscles and to help combat the onset of fatigue. During long sessions of intense physical activity it is easy to be close to depletion of muscle glycogen. When this happens, we enter a state of energy "emergency", whereby the body will use an alternative energy reserve, activating the enzyme involved in the oxidation of BCAAs in the muscle. It will then go to draw on the source of muscle protein, to the detriment of performance itself and muscle recovery.

Yamamoto® Nutrition, always using the best certified raw materials, has chosen to include an ideal element for a drink of this type: InstAA®. Patent of the prestigious English company Cambridge Commodities, InstAA® contains branched amino acids on a "instant" fermented plant base, which allows excellent, immediate solubility in water without forming residues, thus leading to an optimization of their absorption (98 +%).

Mineral salts, electrolytes, coconut water

In addition to balancing blood sugar, which we have already talked about, another factor is also essential for athletes: hydration. An excessive decrease in fluids can, in fact, be detrimental to performance and health. To alter performance, it is sufficient to exceed the threshold of 2% of the initial body mass of lost and uncompensated fluids. When this threshold is exceeded, the main physiological variations that can be observed are a series of disturbances that go beyond the decline in performance. I am talking about an accelerated degree of psychophysical fatigue, an increase in temperature, heart rate (due to a reduced circulating blood volume), glycogen consumption, impaired metabolic functions, gastrointestinal disorders, headaches, cognitive disorders, up to collapse . It is therefore evident that maintaining a good electrolyte balance before, during and after a performance is essential. Thanks to the LEGIONARIUS drink it is possible to counteract dehydration thanks to the contribution of valuable support elements such as:

  • Electrolytes
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Chlorine

In addition, there is the added value of a natural pool of highly rehydrating microelements such as coconut water, which help to stay properly hydrated and prevent cramps caused by intense sweating or by activities carried out at high temperatures.

Yamamoto® Nutrition relies exclusively on certified and accredited raw materials.
For the BCAA line, we chose raw materials from Cambridge Commodities.
Raw materials certified grade A for the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8 and produced in facilities registered by Informed-Sport.
Once the raw material arrives in Italy, it undergoes stringent quality tests.
The batches are sampled and tested and then the finished product is produced according to regulations in Italian plants.
In addition to analyses on intolerances such as gluten and lactose.
