Fitgen is the brainchild of a concerned mother, Chantelle Breytenbach. Her 13 year old son is a high performing swimmer. Her requirements were that any supplements she chose for him needed to be safe, drug free, stimulant free, effective but still beneficial for the growing sport athlete.
In her quest to find the perfect supplementation, she met Dr Gerhard van Rooyen, a renowned Biochemist and Doctor, who specializes in natural performance supplementations.
He developed the Fitgen range, which is registered with the Drug Free Association. All the Fitgen products are manufactured using only highest quality ingredients at a pharmaceutical manufacturing company, with GMP certification.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
For an athlete to perform at his or her maximum, the body needs
an increased supply of good quality proteins and amino acids in an
easily absorbable format.
During training and strenuous exercise, muscle fibres are broken
down as the natural process of muscle contraction. These fibres
needs rebuilding during the rest phase, and a good quality protein is
needed to assist the process. Protein also is used for the production
Proteins is used to manufacture hormones, enzymes, cellular
messengers, nucleic acids, and immune-system components.
Without adequate protein, our bodies can’t put together the
structures that make up every cell, tissue, and organ, nor can it
generate the biochemical substances needed for cardiovascular
function, muscle contraction, growth, and healing. Without an
adequate amount of protein our muscles wouldn’t heal up as quickly
and could therefore lead to overtraining your muscle which could
lead to injury.
Potassium, magnesium and phosphorous is essential micro
minerals that cannot be manufactured by the body, but need to be
consumed. These microminerals are essential for a large amount
of anabolic and catabolic reactions in the body, and is essential to
maintain heathy muscles and bones.
An athlete going through a strenuous exercise routine will struggle
to consume enough protein out of food to ensure all the above
functions, where a well-balanced protein supplement can assist.
