Cytosport - Monster Amino Ultimate Amino Acid Formula Sour Grape - 13.2 oz. (375 g)
CytoSport Monster Amino Sour Grape is an ultra concentrated anabolic amino acid formula. Monster Amino is an ultra-concentrated BCAA formula that delivers an 8:1:1 Ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine to Valine. Recent university of research shows that Leucine enriched beverage consumed with exercise synergistically activates and prolongs activity of the mTOR signaling pathway, which increases muscle anabolic potential (muscle growth). The mTOR pathway is the "trigger" that signals the very genesis of muscle protein synthesis.
Monster Amino is able to achieve the anbolic 8:1:1 BCAA ratio by combining PepForm Leucine Peptides and free-form L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine for maximum muscle-building performance.

Benefits of Using MONSTER AMINO
Loaded With BCAA's:
Monster Amino is packed with the muscle sparing BCAA's L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. CytoSport uses specialty micronized amino acids to maximize flavor and amino acid absorption. BCAA's help to protect lean muscle tissues during workouts and promote muscle recovery and growth post-workout.
Essential Co-Factor for Utilization:
Monster Amino contains Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (vitamin B6) an essential co-factor that facilitates transamitation reactions. This cofactor helps to drive metabolic reactions necessary for BCAA utilization at the cellular level.
Packed With Complex Carbs:
Monster Maize complex carbohydrates provide a unique blend of waxy maize starch and long chain glucose polymers (maltodextrin). The properties of these fast acting carbs allow for rapid amino acid uptake, muscle hydration, and glycogen replenishment.
Monster Amino contains 100mg of Carbogen to help accelerate digestion and breakdown of Monster Maize Complex Carbohydrates (waxy maize starch and maltodextrin). Rapid digestion helps to protect and preserve valuable muscle glycogen.
The competition is scared when Chad Aichs puts his sheer power on display. Nightmarishly strong, the Nevada native is one of the greatest power lifters who has ever lived. Chad made an immediate impact in 1997 when he took second place in his first meet ever. By 1999, he competed in his first three-lift meet and finished in first place with a 1750 lbs total. He currently holds the AWPC world records in squat, bench, deadlift, and total. What’s scary is that Aichs hasn’t even come close to reaching his true potential. You might want to keep the lights on when this monster walks in the room.

Dr. George Brooks, Ph.D. sits on the board of advisors for CytoSport. During his graduate studies at the University of Michigan, his extensive research in the areas of "Oxygen Debt" and "Anaerobic Threshold" lead to several hypotheses and fundamental revisions in the understanding of the metabolic response to exercise. The knowledge gained in these efforts led to the invention of PolyLactate and the formulation of the original Cytomax.
Dr. Brooks was recognized for his lifetime of outstanding scientific contributions related to sports medicine and exercise science at the 2007 Awards and Tributes Committee of the American College of Sports Medicine. He was awarded the Honor Award at the Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The ACSM Honor Award is the highest award of the College given to only one individual each year.
