AstraGin: Absorption and Protein Synthesis

February 04, 2019

If you have not heard of AstraGin yet, it’s time to become more aware of what this powerful ingredient does when put in your supplements. Many of you are spending your hard-earned dollars on different products designed to help you go that extra mile. It only makes sense then that you’d want to ensure that every supplement you use pays off.

That’s where AstraGin comes into play. Let’s look at what this ingredient does and why it’s one of the most important ingredients to look for when you go supplement shopping.

What is AstraGin

AstraGin is a completely natural compound that comes from saponins isolated from the Astragalus membranaceus and Panax notoginseng plant. The primary purpose of its use is to improve the overall absorption of the ingredients in your supplements.

For instance, if you have a poor quality whey protein powder, your body may only absorb 60-75% of that whey protein. This means you aren’t actually netting as much protein as you think you are.

If you have a good quality protein, you may be able to get that up higher to around 90-95%. If you have a good quality protein plus AstraGin, you should be able to make use of all the protein found in that supplement. It simply makes all of your supplements that much more effective.

This is also the case with a pre-workout supplement. Most of us know the rush we get when we take a pre-workout: the desire to get in the gym and train hard. Now imagine that only amplified. This is what AstraGin can do for you.

Some of the most common products you can find with AstraGin include amino acids, protein powders, creatine, arginine, beta-alanine, glucosamine, and other vitamins and minerals.

You may also find it in stacked products, which means the product contains more than one ingredient in it to provide multiple benefits.

The Many Ways AstraGin Supports Your Well-Being

The obvious benefit of AstraGin is that it will help make all your sports supplements more effective. This can then help you benefit from things such as improved strength in the gym, enhanced endurance, higher energy levels, and better body composition.

AstraGin has also shown to help boost intestinal health as well. It works in the gut to help keep your cells healthier, which then assist with digestion and absorption. This can help with your overall nutritional status, helping to ensure you don’t fall below your daily value important vitamins and minerals. Additionally, it can also impact fullness. When you absorb your food better, you feel fuller for longer, which will help you with weight control.

Gut health is something that many people take for granted but can have a very massive influence on your overall well-being. Something that many people don’t realize is that up to 75% of your immune system is housed in your gut. When your gut isn’t healthy, your immune system may not be strong either. This can then invite many different diseases and conditions into the body, resulting in you falling ill.

On top of that, we now have strong research suggesting that gut health and brain health are linked. This link can impact the mood states of many people. So if you are someone who has been feeling down lately, even depressed, you may want to look at your gut health. If you are not tending to it, it could be the root cause of this issue. AstraGin can improve your gut health, so in a sense, could potentially help improve your mood at the same time.

It’s not just feeling down or depressed that is at stake here. It can also impact your motivation, drive, anxiety, irritability, as well as your overall level of pessimism.

Finally, one last benefit that you’ll get from using AstraGin is improved gut bacteria. Probiotics, as they’re technically called, are something that we all need to keep us healthy, but most of us lack. Unless you are in the habit of eating probiotic-rich foods on a regular basis such as yogurt, kimchi, miso soup, or sauerkraut, chances are, you are falling short. You can supplement with probiotics as well, but most people are not doing this either.

The good news is that AstraGin can help to support the growth and development of many important gut bacteria. This way, the numbers can thrive while you reap all the benefits.

Having sufficient levels of probiotics can help with improving regularity, controlling your body weight, improving insulin sensitivity, and warding off cardiovascular disease.

Getting AstraGin Into Your Day

Now you can plainly see why AstraGin is such an important ingredient to be taking in. This is why we use it in so many of our Jacked Factory products, including Boost-XT, Nitrosurge, Intrasurge, and Build-XT. We believe that it isn’t just about making sure we use the highest quality ingredients in our products, but ensuring that these ingredients are maximally absorbed. It’s why you’ll see superior results from our product over the competitors.

So don’t miss out on what AstraGin has to offer. If you are going to spend money on your supplements, make sure they make a difference.
