STRENGTH AND POWER: It provides the building blocks for the synthesis or building of muscles, connective tissues, enzymes, and hormones. Because of its role in building new tissues in the body, Protira Crunch has a variety of benefits. These include gains in lean body mass, which can also lead to improve biomotor abilities like strength and power (*). Finally, the nutrients found in the ingredients are also believed to enhance and strengthen the immune system.
TIME RELEASED FORMULA: Because of its ability to release amino acids into the blood at a more prolonged rate, Protira Crunch is thought to be beneficial especially in the evening or as a post-workout after exercise. Supplying the body with prolonged release of amino acids ensures nutrient utilization for longer periods of time, which results in lean muscle building, recovery and performance.
VITAMINS AND MINERALS play a central role in sustaining and extending healthy life span, enhancing sports performances, and offsetting the challenges of advancing age. We combine a spectrum derived from whole food ingredients fortified with additional vegan vitamins and minerals (Choline Bitartrate, B6, B12, D2, H, L-Methylfolate, Calcium & Iron). The focus lies on dosing strategies that are documented to be safe and effective to improve performance or to influence the chronic adaptations.
AYURVEDA AND ORTHOMOLECULAR SUPPORT: To support the effects of the 24h-society and the tremendous stress of daily work load in a fast moving environment, every formula contains a very balanced mix of phytonutrients.

Combining strength and endurance results in muscular endurance. Sports may require muscular endurance of long, medium, or short duration.
Muscular endurance of short duration (ME short) is the muscular endurance necessary for events ranging from 40 seconds to two minutes, which involves a mix of lactic capacity and aerobic power. In the 100-meter swimming event, for example, the start is a power action, as are the first 20 strokes. From the midpoint of the race to the end, however, muscular endurance becomes at least equally as important as power. In the last 30 to 40 meters, the crucial element is the ability to duplicate the force of the arms’ pull to maintain velocity and increase at the finish. Thus muscular endurance contributes strongly to the final result for events such as the 100-meter swim, as well as the 400-meter run; speedskating races of 500 to 1,000 meters; and the 500-meter in canoeing.
Muscular endurance of medium duration (ME medium) is typical of cyclic sports in which activity lasts two to eight minutes and requires aerobic power, such as 200- and 400-meter swimming, 3,000-meter speedskating, mid-distance running, 1,000-meter canoeing, wrestling, martial arts, figure skating, synchronized swimming, and cycling pursuit.
Muscular endurance of long duration (ME long) is the ability to apply force against a standard resistance for a longer period (more than eight minutes; aerobic power to aerobic capacity). Activities that call for ME long include rowing, cross-country skiing, road cycling, and long-distance running, swimming, speedskating, and canoeing.
