WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING AMINO 1 BLACK:

Those interested in a non-proprietary blend sports drink or individuals/athletes who want the combined benefits of hydration, energy, and recovery in one drink.

KEY INGREDIENTS IN AMINO 1 BLACK:

BCAAs (L-Leucine, L-Valine, L-Isoleucine):

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) can promote muscle repair (muscle protein synthesis) and increase muscle growth over time. It can also be used to prevent fatigue in novice athletes and quicken recovery time.[1,2]

Coconut Water Powder:

Coconut water contains a complete balance of electrolytes (minerals in your blood), which may maximize absorption and rehydrate better than water or a typical sports drink.[3]

Amino Acids:

Amino 1 contains over 10,000mg of amino acids (broken down proteins).  Amino acids serve as the “building blocks” for muscle repair and growth.  Amino acids can also be used as a source of energy.[4,5]

Electrolytes:

Electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, help keep your body fluids balanced.  When individuals exercise electrolytes are lost through sweat and must be replaced to maintain balance.  Failure to replace electrolytes can lead to muscle cramping and other adverse consequences.[6,7]

Glutamine:

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body.  Glutamine is effective at replenishing energy for muscles (glycogen) after exhaustive exercise which may lead to quicker recovery.[8]

L-Carnitine:

L-Carnitine may promote fat burning (oxidation) which could result in higher endurance performance.  It has also been shown to reduce markers of muscle damage.[9]

Caffeine Anhydrous:

Caffeine anhydrous is a powerful stimulant, and it can be used to improve physical strength and endurance.[10]

TeaCrine:

Teacrine works with the body’s natural metabolic processes to deliver longer lasting energy, increase mental clarity and improve mood and motivation.[11]

PRODUCT USAGE:

Mix one scoop of Amino 1 Black in 12-16 oz. of water and consume before, during, or after training.
