You may have heard of them, but how important are Amino Acids? Known as the building blocks of life, Amino's help the body to grow, break down food, repair body tissue and repair muscle after exercise. As a great source of energy they’re also important in keeping you feeling vitalised and motivated throughout the day. Amino’s aren’t just for those looking to get the most out of training, they’re incredibly important in maintaining your general health too!
Instant delivery of building blocks (amino acids) to the muscles:
Protects muscles during exercise and kick-starts the recovery process immediately after exercise.
Fully Dosed BCAA & EAA for Muscle Repair & Recovery
When used with carbohydrate it improves protein balance and muscle protein synthesis, already during exercise!
Acetyl L Carnitine & Tyrosine for Focus & Alertness
Electrolytes & Cofactors to Maintain Cell Hydration & Fluids
Gluten, Lactose & Soy Free
HOW AMINOS WORK
There are 9 essential Amino acids that are important for your health and wellbeing, however these cannot be made by the body, and in fact can only come from a healthy diet. Athletic Sport’s Aminos EAA + BCAA Energy contain all 9 of these essential Aminos along with an additional 3 non-essential amino acids that promote protein synthesis and prevent muscle catabolism which are vital for the body’s recovery process after intense training. Protein Synthesis is the biological process in which individual cells build up cellular proteins after they have been lost in exercise.
Nutritional Information Panel (Pineapple Strawberry)
A Sport Amino also contains PeptoPro®, a patented hydrolysed protein ingredient made from milk protein casein. It has the same amino acid profile as casein, which is excellent for recovery thanks to the high Glutamine levels along with the full spectrum of Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s). As most people know, Casein in its native form is very slowly digested, however by hydrolysing the casein in PeptoPro® , the result is a protein consisting of many small peptides (>60% di and tri peptides) and very few free form amino acids.
What is the significance of these peptides? Di and Tri peptides are much more rapidly absorbed than free Amino Acids or native/intact (unhydrolysed) proteins. PeptoPro® has a very fast passage through the stomach and is very rapidly absorbed from the gut leading to fast appearance in the circularity system where it can be taken up into the muscle.
Substantial human clincial studies show PeptoPro® ® can improve endurance, reduce muscle soreness, deliver faster recovery and increase muscle growth. This is possible because PeptoPro® contains the ALL the EAA’s, not just the BCAA’s, and in the most rapidly absorbed form possible. That’s right, these nutrients can be accessed by your body within minutes. The recovery process doesn’t wait until you finish your workout, so neither should your recovery supplement.
PeptoPro® is important in a product designed for recovery because it has the following benefits:
