Amino Liquid

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and amino liquid supplements provide your body with amino acids in its purest and best absorbable/utilizable form to maximize athletic performance, muscle growth and optimize protein synthesis. When you supplement amino acids in liquid or tablet form, your body doesn't have to break down the protein into amino acids. Amino acids are also responsible for the production of digestive enzymes. So your body needs amino acids in order to get more amino acids from normal food and that's why amino liquid can improve your metabolism.

Description: Amino Liquid

  • All types of physiological processes are linked to amino acids: Energy household, recovery ability, muscle and strength gains, fat loss and even mood and brain function.
  • During a heavy workout your body can start breaking down muscle tissue for energy production (if there are not enough energy resources from carbohydrates). To avoid this you can supplement BCAA's (branched chain amino acids)
  • There are 9 indispensable amino acids (IAA, also called essential amino acids), meaning that they must be supplied from some food or supplement source. Others (around 15) are synthesized them these 9 (DAA, also called dispensable amino acids). That doesn't sound very important for your nutrition, but the content and balance of amino acids, especially the ratio of IAA to DAA, is what determines the actual value of a protein food or supplement. In general lean meat has better amino acids than vegetables. That's why it makes sense for vegetarians to supplement amino liquid.
  • Creatine is made from three amino acids: Arginine, Methionine and Glycine.
