Post-workout bliss for
Have your post, after training like a pro!
Here’s your amino acid-based supplement with an excellent BCAA ratio of 8:1:1, also featuring Creatine Monohydrate, L-Glutamine, Taurine and a special blend of vitamins B6, B12 and Magnesium - to empower it all for easy and fast recovery.1
Recover to get over
The recovery process is just as important as your workout! If the recovery fails, muscle fibers are never completely restored. EAA supplementation has been shown to be beneficial for athletes. The increase of muscle protein synthesis and the reduction of muscle protein degradation are key in post-workout recovery, to help enhance the adaptive response to training.
One serving of Amino Recovery contains ~ 8 g of EAAs and 3750 mg of BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine and valine) in a perfect 8:1:1 ratio! BCAA supplementation following exercise (leucine is by far the most important player here) stimulates the mTOR pathway, the molecular pathway that ‘turns on’ muscle protein synthesis. One single serving contains 3000 mg of leucine, also known as the great "trigger" for muscle anabolism.2
Branched Chain Amino Acids are protein’s building blocks. They are called "essential" because the body can't produce them. They must be obtained from food.
This formula contains a powerful recovery blend with key ingredients to assist with the recovery process (reducing symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage) and support muscle growth (anabolism):
Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are the three members that make up a VIP amino acid club called BCAAs. Now, why are they so relevant? The importance of BCAAs lies in the way the body metabolizes them and the biological processes they trigger.3
Creatine (3000 mg per serving): creatine is one of the most popular nutritional ergogenic aids for athletes. In addition to the well-supported ergogenic effects in high-intensity exercise performance, there is strong evidence that creatine supplementation can help athletes enhance glycogen loading and experience less inflammation following intense exercise, due to antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.4
L-Glutamine (3000 mg per serving): improves muscle function and immune function; reduces biomarkers of exercise-induced muscle damage.5
Taurine (700 mg per serving): reduces soreness and improves muscle function after damaging exercise.6
Magnesium, vitamins B6 and B12: key nutrients to support normal energy-yielding metabolism and normal muscle function.
Magnesium: contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue, electrolyte balance, normal energy-yielding metabolism and normal muscle function.
Vitamin B12 and vitamin B6: contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
