Energizes, While Combating Fatigue
- Energizes, while combating fatigue
- Fast absorption to help prevent dehydration
- Increases fat burning with exercise
- Helps maintain focus during workouts
- Natural Flavor - No Caffeine
Rich in BCAAs as well as arginine and glutamine, Amino Vital delivers the power your muscles need for sustained exertion. Studies also show that this unique combination of amino acids results in lower kinase (CK-MM) levels in the bloodstream, which can be a symptom of muscle damage and exhaustion. Ensures Fast Absorption to Help Prevent Dehydration
Requiring no digestion, Amino Vital passes from the stomach into the intestines and from there to the rest of your body as quickly as possible. In addition, the osmotic pressure of Amino Vital is designed to allow a fast but steady rate of absorption, so more fluid reaches your body tissues when you need it most. Increases Fat Burning with Exercise
Amino Vital encourages fat burning by helping your muscles perform at peak efficiency and thus burn more fat calories. Over the long term, an increased muscle-to-fat ratio results in a higher metabolism, making it much easier to take — and keep — weight off. Helps Maintain Focus during Workouts
A plentiful supply of BCAAs supports the psychological effect of focus during exercise. When your body is low on BCAAs, there’s a relative increase in production of the potent brain neurotransmitter serotonin, which makes you feel sleepy and unfocused. Amino Vital ensures optimum levels of BCAAs, so serotonin won’t get in the way of workout. Encourages Muscle Recovery and Repair
Amino Vital provides the nutrients — BCAAs, arginine and glutamine — your muscles need to rebuild themselves faster with less soreness. Arginine also helps remove toxins that accumulate during muscle exertion. The result, as serious athletes report, is much quicker recovery, with greatly reduced soreness, stiffness and fatigue after even the most strenuous workouts. What are they?
The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAs are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet.
BCAAs are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue and appear to preserve muscle stores of glycogen (a storage form of carbohydrate that can be converted into breakdown during exercise. Where are they found?
Dairy products and red meat contain the greatest amounts of BCAAs, although they are present in all supplements are other sources of BCAAs. BCAA supplements provide the amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. How much is usually taken?
Most diets provide an adequate amount of BCAAs for most people, which is about 25–65 mg per 2.2 pounds of body weight. Athletes involved in intense training often take 5 grams of leucine, 4 grams of valine, and 2 grams of isoleucine per day to prevent muscle loss and increase muscle gain. Are there any side effects or interactions?
Side effects have not been reported with the use of BCAAs. Until more research is conducted, people with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) should avoid taking supplemental BCAAs. In one study, supplementation with a large amount of BCAAs (60 grams) caused alterations in the blood levels of tryptophan, phenylalanine, and tyrosine. The changes in the blood levels of:" ":duals. Until more is known, individuals with a history of depression should consult a doctor before supplementing with BCAAs. People with kidney or liver disease should not consume high amounts of amino acids without consulting their doctor. What makes Ajinomoto the world's No. 1 amino science company?
