KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN AMINO 1 RTD:
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 typical sports drink.[3]

Electrolytes:

Electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium) have many roles in the body, including fluid balance, bone density, and muscular contraction.  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.[4,5]

PRODUCT USAGE:

Drink Amino 1 RTD before, during, or after a workout.  On non-training days, consume throughout the day.
