ORLANDO, Fla. – I’ll admit it now, I am someone who takes energy-enhancing sports drinks. This afternoon at the PGA Merchandise Show, however, I stumbled upon a product with which I was not too familiar.
Applied Life-Science Research Industries (ALR) is renowned for their body building supplements. Today I found out they are trying to appeal to a whole new audience in the golf world.
ALR is launching a product called Chain’d Out, a powdered supplement you add to a bottle of water and drink before, during and after a round of golf.
Chain’d Out is designed to help your body continuously replenish amino acids in your bloodstream. Here is little Science 101: Our bodies do not make amino acids. After we eat something that contains proteins, our body digests the protein and stores the amino acids in our muscles from the food that was eaten.
There are three essential amino acids in Chain’d Out that help your body recover quickly so you can stay strong for all 18 holes of golf.
“It offers an alternative to sugar products,” ALR’s Golf Pro Michael Manavian said. “It’s especially good and nutritional for senior citizens with diabetes. It offers something good for them including insuline functioning, antioxidants and maintains levels of the body’s cortisol.”
Chain’d Out contains no sugar, fats, calories or electrolytes. The product comes in two flavors: Appletini and Berry Banana.
“Ideally, you take it as an intra-workout drink, something that as your round is wrapping up, your body doesn’t feel fatigued or tired,” Manavian said.
Chain’d Out is Certified Goods Manufacturing Practices compliant with the NCAA, International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency. In fact, none of the company’s products are on any banned substances lists. The product’s slogan – setting the standard in non-hormonal performance – helps send that message.
Sounds like a must-have for your next golf outing.
