Amino Complex (1500mg) Overview
When you ingest a protein, the body will break it apart into individual amino acids, reorder them and then turn them into whatever it needs at the time. BodyStrong's Amino Complex contains 17 different amino acids from hydrolyzed protein. Rather quickly, your body absorbs these aminos, where the muscles put them to work, encouraging tissue repair and stimulating new growth. Amino Complex is a perfect supplement for those looking to provide their muscles with extra amino acids during heavy weight training, endurance training, in between meals or while dieting.
Beyond being the basis for muscle growth, amino acids are essential for synthesizing proteins, enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters and just about every other body function you can name.
BodyStrong's Amino Complex encourages positive nitrogen retention in between meals and during intense metabolic resistance training. Amino Complex can be used as a functional, pre- and post-workout nutrition supplement, supplying key amino acids to muscles during those crucial times. Take it after a workout when your protein synthesis is low to jump start muscle repair.
BodyStrong Amino Complex is rich in glutamine, arginine, glycine and Branched-chain amino acids to facilitate better recovery and bigger muscle pumps. The body cannot naturally produce BCAAs L-leucine, L-valine and L-isoleucine, so they must be taken as a supplement or sourced from foods. These three amino acids, along with glutamine, also promote protein synthesis and prevent muscle breakdown.
Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles, plus it is 19 percent nitrogen, making it the primary nitrogen transporter to your muscle cells. As you train, your glutamine levels deplete rapidly, decreasing your strength and stamina. Supplemental glutamine can help restore these levels and minimize muscle breakdown.
Arginine is a great nutrient for heart health. It helps relieve congestive heart failure and improves stamina.
Glycine helps promote muscle growth and improves digestion performance. It also repairs and protects joint and cartilage, slows the effects of aging and supports the immune system. It's also good for the brain.
Amino Complex is also a great tool for those on strict diets. Many bodybuilding enthusiasts have popularized the method of “pulsing” aminos, or taking them between meals. While dieting, this method may preserve and even build lean mass when cutting calories. Research shows you can pulse your amino acids between meals to increase protein syntheses without hindering the anabolic effects of your regular meals.
